Ukraine: A US-Supported Fascist Cancer in Europe’s Heartland

Ukraine: A US-Supported Fascist Cancer in Europe's Heartland

by Stephen Lendman

As Russia and leaders from dozens of other countries prepare to celebrate Victory in Europe on May 9 in Moscow, the defeated scourge again threatens regional peace and stability - courtesy of US-installed and supported Ukrainian Nazi thugs.

They celebrated May 2 as Victory Day - the infamous year ago day when Kiev-unleashed Right Sector Nazi thugs murdered hundreds of anti-regime Odessans wanting to live free from the scourge of fascism.

City police did nothing while they shot, bludgeoned, strangled, hacked to death with axes, and threw defenseless victims from windows of Odessa's Trade Union House building where they sought sanctuary in vain.

Right Sector thugs awaited them inside for a well-planned mass murder operation ordered by Kiev, OK'd by Washington.

Ukraine's Nazi-controlled Svoboda party outrageously said the following:

"May 2, 2014 was a historic day for Odessa. Odessans bravely repulsed Kremlin gangs and their local leaders, thus protecting the city from the arrival of the 'Russian world.' "

"This day was decisive in the months-long stand off between the members of Odessa Maidan and the anti-government and staunchly pro-Moscow Anti-Maidan." 

"It culminated in Ukrainian victory and the beginning of a new page in the history of the city."

Svoboda proclaimed May 2 as a "day of victory over the Kremlin terrorists groups, the day of purification from the Kremlin infection."

"This day is a proud page in the history of the city." 

Washington is in bed with some of the world's most ruthless elements - including monarchal and other despots, Nazis, takfiri terrorists, and virtually any outlaw groups and individuals willing to do its dirty work.

US imperial ruthlessness menaces humanity worldwide. It assures endless wars, genocidal slaughter, mass destruction and unspeakable human misery.

It passes under the radar of a complicit media ignoring what demands daily headlines. Presstitution triumphs over legitimate journalism. 

State-sponsored propaganda substitutes for reporting hard truths on issues mattering most.

Ukraine is in the eye of the storm. Irresponsible Russia bashing remains intense.

Last Thursday, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf outrageously accused Moscow of "a lot of lip service…about its Minsk commitments but not a lot of action."

Asked about the year ago Odessa massacre, she ducked  explaining Kiev's responsibility complicit with Washington.

She called the anniversary "important…not to lose sight of the bigger picture in Ukraine and that the fact that Russia's 'aggression' has left more than 6,000 people dead and displaced at least a million more."

It bears repeating what previous articles stressed. Russia is the continent's leading peace and stability proponent.

America threatens world peace. It bears full responsibility for Ukrainian crisis conditions - for dirty war without mercy against Donbass civilians, for last May's Odessa massacre murdering hundreds in cold blood.

Don't expect any US official to explain. They're complicit in the highest of high crimes. 

Blaming Russia irresponsibly is cover for their own criminality - on an unprecedented worsening global scale.

The Donetsk People's Republic Prime Minister Denis Pushilin accused Kiev's "overseas sponsors" (mainly Washington) of helping their puppet regime continue waging war on Donbass.

Poroshenko refuses to observe Minsk ceasefire terms. He ignores them entirely. He's preparing for escalated war.

"We are ready for any turn of events, but we will do the utmost to solve the situation at the negotiating table," Pushilin explained.

Fascist regimes don't negotiate. They demand. Kiev and its US puppet master want unconditional Donbass surrender.

They want nationwide fascist rule. They deplore democratic rights. They'll continue waging dirty war to eliminate them entirely nationwide. Expect lots more death and destruction ahead.

Moscow expressed concern about blatant Kiev Minsk breaches - especially recent heavy shelling of Donetsk.

According to DPR officials, residential areas were targeted. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov urged OSCE chairman Ivica Dacic to intervene responsibly to halt Kiev aggression.

Moscow's Foreign Ministry wants OSCE monitors to "demand that Kiev immediately stop a flagrant violation of the Minsk agreements."

Donetsk Mayor Igor Martynov said residential buildings and a school were struck.

OSCE's Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) is expected to visit the targeted area on Sunday to assess what happened.

Its latest report explained deteriorating conditions "involving live fire (by Ukrainian forces) near and at SMM patrols."

It bears repeating what previous articles explained. Minsk was dead on arrival.

Washington demands continued dirty war without mercy. Expect escalation at Obama's discretion. 

Potentially targeting Russia belligerently looms. US forces are readying for confrontation. Will WW III follow?

Glyphosate “Probably” Causes Cancer: But Patrick Moore Says Drinking A Quart Does No Harm...

Countercurrents, RINF, Global Research

(all links in italics)
On Friday 20 March, the World Health Organisation stated that the world's most widely-used weed killer can "probably" cause cancer. The WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) said that glyphosate was "classified as probably carcinogenic to humans." 


Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. By Monday, Monsanto's shares had fallen by 2%.


It was no surprise then that the work of WHO cancer specialists from 11 countries was speedily dismissed by Monsanto. In a press release, the company argued the findings are based on ‘junk’ science and cherry picking and are agenda driven. 


Philip Miller, Monsanto's vice-president of global regulatory affairs, said:

"We don't know how IARC could reach a conclusion that is such a dramatic departure from the conclusion reached by all regulatory agencies around the globe."

It's not so dramatic given that the sanctioning and testing of glyphosate for commercial use has been a seriously flawed affair due to the actions of and conflicts of interest within various regulatory agencies (for example, see this,thisthis and this). Moreover, Monsanto itself knows a thing or two about junk science, cherry picking and biased agendas being a long-time exponent of such things. 


Glyphosate is widely used on crops and has been detected in food, water and in the air after it has been sprayed. Its use has previously been strongly associated with various diseases (see this and this). The evidence for the WHO's conclusion is derived from studies in the US, Canada, and Sweden that have been published since 2001.


To coincide with the IARC’s findings, public promoter of GM golden rice Patrick Moore recently said during an interview on French TV that:

“I do not believe that glyphosate in Argentina is causing cancer. You can drink a whole quart and it won’t hurt you.”

(See here for information about glyphosate use and cancer rates in Argentina).


The interviewer asks if he would like to drink it because he has some available. 

Moore: “I’d be happy to… not really. I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”

The interviewer again challenges Moore to drink some. 

Moore: “No. I’m not stupid… People try to commit suicide with it and fail fairly regularly.”

The interviewer urges Moore to tell the truth.

Moore: “No, It’s not dangerous to humans.”

Interviewer: “So are you ready to drink one glass of glyphosate?”

Moore: “No, I’m not an idiot… Interview me about golden rice… then the interview is finished… you’re a complete jerk.”


Then Moore storms out.


And the lesson is: do not make baseless statements.


Perhaps Monsanto could learn a thing or two from Moore's interview.


Watch Moore’s foot-in-mouth interview here:

Cancer Victim’s Obamacare Nightmare: Death Panels And Racism A Reality




My wife DeLynn is going to die.

Barring a miracle, something which is being constantly prayed for and is entirely possible considering the boundless healing power of Almighty God, I have had to come to terms with that reality. While I might not be able to do anything to prevent the cancer that has ravaged her body from taking her life, I should at least be able to make her passing more comfortable; but we are being blocked at every turn by coverage limitations under Obamacare and, even more shockingly, social workers who delight – and profit – from denying benefits to eligible clients.

DeLynn and our grandson Conner
My wife and I are not the only victims of a social services system run by sadistic ideologues. According to a vendor for the Michigan Department of Human Services, the department is filled with cruel, uncaring, and despicable “social workers.” In an exclusive interview with The Truth Is Viral, this whistleblower says that she has personally held conversations with social workers who called their clients, “leeches, losers, and lowlifes.” She relayed the story of one woman in particular who was raising five children alone after her husband left upon learning that she had cancer. The woman’s worker told the whistleblower, “She should have thought about getting sick before she had all of those kids.”

The whistleblower described the sickening practice of rewarding workers who denied benefits to eligible clients – many times based solely on the fact that the client was white – and how those workers were rewarded. Every time an eligible client was denied a benefit for which they would normally be entitled, the worker gets a “brownie point.” According to the whistleblower, these brownie points can be turned in for pay raises and promotions.

One would think that people choose social work in order to help people who are in need. It is possible, and apparently altogether too common, for social workers to become so jaded that they begin to treat their clients with the disdain normally reserved for junkies or skid row bums stinking of Sterno; and even then, aren't they human beings deserving of compassion too? When that disdain takes the form of criminal actions that not only adversely affect the lives of society’s most vulnerable, but define anew terms like “corruption,” “avarice,” and “sociopath,” it is incumbent upon society to put an end to those actions and punish those responsible.

The Old Ball & Chain dragging me to garage sales.
I believe that my family is being punished by our social worker and her superiors. We can never get a phone call returned by our worker and her supervisor refuses to meet with us or even consider our request for a new worker despite repeated complaints. Whenever I go to talk to him he’s “In a meeting” or otherwise unavailable. My wife’s Medicaid has been turned off twice since she was diagnosed with cancer. Dealing with the disease is difficult enough without having to fight to keep her insurance for no good reason whatsoever. We are literally afraid to ask them for anything for fear of having new sanctions imposed instead of the help we require.

But the situation here at Casa Powell has reached the point where my wife needs skilled, in-home care; she needs hospice. She’s pretty much confined to bed, as her bed sores will attest, depending on me to steady her and provide what measures I can to make her comfortable. I’m “on-call,” literally 24 hours a day, unable to even leave the house to shop for groceries unless there is another adult available to stay with her.

Chemo-weakened bones break from simply walking
So last week we called NEMSCA, the Northeast Michigan Community Service Agency which works with Social Services to arrange such things, only to receive a letter informing us that my wife could not be evaluated because their in-home nursing program was “at capacity.” In other words, they don’t have any money. So much for Obamacare “protecting the most vulnerable in our society.”

Does anyone else find it disturbing that the government can find money to supply weapons to terrorist groups in Syria (ISIS thanks you Mssr. Obama & McCain,) and send illegal aliens to school instead of sending them back to the country from which they came, that Bradley Manning can transmogrify himself into a “woman” (boy, will that ever make him popular in Leavenworth,) and aged transsexuals can use Medicare to pay for their gender reassignment surgeries when they turn 65; but a dying woman can’t get skilled end-of-life care? Possibly because she is white?

The very thought makes me want to vomit.

If you would like to do something to change this, share this video on every social media site to which you belong. Post it on Twitter, sending it specifically to the FOX News personalities listed below. If anyone expects MSNBC to touch this story they’re nuts. Post it on Facebook, remembering to post it in all of the groups to which you belong in addition to your timeline. Click the share button under the video on Youtube and it opens up to reveal ten different sites where you can share the video with a couple of mouse clicks. Then send it to all of your email contacts and ask them to do the same. Send up smoke signals if you have to.

Maybe someone who can help us will see this and give a damn.

Our 25th anniversary gift; a night in a B&B
DeLynn and I want to thank everyone who has been praying for us as we have waged this battle against this most insidious disease. Your kind comments, lengthy written prayers, and moral support have strengthened us more than can be described. We’d ask however, that you not give up yet. We haven’t. Continual prayer may yet have the desired effect and save her life.

I can’t imagine a greater miracle than a cure for her cancer and diabetic neuropathy, and if one is forthcoming I swear now before the entire world that I will be ceaseless in my efforts to proclaim the healing power of Christ to all who would listen. If granting that miracle is not Father’s will, then we will need your prayers to strengthen us for our walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death.
In any case, please pray. At this point, for anything that matters, Jesus Christ is our only hope.

God bless you all, and Semper Fi,
Bobby and DeLynn

Dealing With A Terminal Illness Under Obamacare; Cancer Patient Denied Coverage


Last week was a tough one, with bad news coming from two different sources. The first was from my wife's oncologist who reported that her last two CT scans showed no shrinkage of the tumors that have invaded her liver.

A couple of days later, we found out that the Michigan Department of Social Services has determined that my terminally ill wife is no longer eligible for Medicaid. As of December 1st 2013, she will lose her Medicaid; all because I applied for Obamacare. She is so stressed and frightened that she has been in tears all week. The bastards even took away the free school lunches that my son was getting in school because that is tied to being a Medicaid recipient.

Bobby & DeLynn Powell
We are appealing that ridiculous decision, but if we are to fight to get her coverage back and win, we are going to need your prayers and the help of Almighty God.

This Obamacare nightmare is a scheme cooked up right in the very pits of Hell. I'm afraid that not only will many people lose their insurance, but some - including my wife - may very well die as a result of Barack Obama's desire to destroy 1/6th of our economy with a plan that he knew full well would force more than 100-million Americans off of their insurance, leaving them unable to get affordable medical care.

I am putting together a show that will document this travesty in detail for publication later this week. Please lift my wife and me up to Father and ask that He be with us both. DeLynn doesn't want to die any more than I want her to die, and we're both frightened out of our minds.

I know this video might seem weird. I'm not quite sure how I am going to process this. I have no idea what I am going to do if I lose my wife. She means everything to me.

God bless and Semper Fi,
Bobby

Air Pollution a Leading Cause of Cancer: World Health Organization

Air pollution causes cancer, the world health body declared on Thursday.

A woman bikes through pollution in Vietnam. (Photo: Letizia Airoldi/cc/flickr)While the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) had previously classified elements of air pollution like diesel engine exhaust and some metals as carcinogens, the new designation marks the first time IARC is designating air pollution as a whole a carcinogen.

“Our task was to evaluate the air everyone breathes rather than focus on specific air pollutants,” Dr. Dana Loomis, Deputy Head of the Monographs Section of IARC, which identifies environmental factors that can increase the risk of human cancer, explained in a statement. 

Based on over 1000 scientific papers from studies across the world, the group now places air pollution among tobacco smoking, benzene and Gamma radiation as a known carcinogen in what is referred to as the "Encyclopaedia of Carcinogens.” 

“The WHO study confirms what many environmental justice community activists, leaders and scholars have been saying for decades."
—Dr. Robert Bullard
“The results from the reviewed studies point in the same direction: the risk of developing lung cancer is significantly increased in people exposed to air pollution," added Loomis.

In addition to finding sufficient evidence to say that outdoor air pollution causes lung cancer, the group found a positive association to an increased risk of bladder cancer.

“The air we breathe has become polluted with a mixture of cancer-causing substances,” said Kurt Straif, Head of the IARC Monographs Section. “We now know that outdoor air pollution is not only a major risk to health in general, but also a leading environmental cause of cancer deaths.”

The causes of the air pollution the IARC points to are transportation, stationary power generation, industrial and agricultural emissions, and residential heating and cooking, and though there are extreme global differences in air quality, the IARC stated that the conclusions of their findings "apply to all regions of the world." 

“The WHO study confirms what many environmental justice community activists, leaders and scholars have been saying for decades," said Robert Bullard, Dean of the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University and a man considered "the father of environmental justice," in a statement given to Common Dreams

But, Bullard continued, "Air pollution is not only an environmental justice issue, it is also a health equity issue in the United States and around the world—with the most vulnerable populations, people of color, poor in cities, and vulnerable marginalized populations facing the greatest risks.”

IARC Director Dr. Christopher Wild concluded that "this report should send a strong signal to the international community to take action without further delay.”

Editor’s note: Michelle Aldrich, 66, has been working for marijuana legalization —which she defines as “the right to grow it for free in your backyard”— for most of her life.  She and her husband Michael live in a comfortable old apartment near the San Francisco Marina which they moved into 40 years ago. The following is adapted from a talk Michelle gave in July 2012 to the Women’s Visionary Congress.

I had smoked cannabis since 1967 but early in 2011 I kept saying I could not get high. I was smoking a lot. I now believe that THC was going to the tumor and lymph nodes, which is why the cancer did not spread more than it had.

On November 15, 2011,  I was supposed to have lunch with Diane Fornbacher from the NORML Women’s Alliance. I was too sick to go. I felt like I had the flu.

That week I got a call from Linda Ward, who is now my therapist. I had been looking for a new therapist since 2009, when I got off all the meds that I had been taking for 20 years for depression —Prozac, Lamictal, and Trazadone. Rick Doblin [director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies]  found Linda for me just when I really needed to talk to someone. The start of synchronicity.

I felt well enough to go see the doctor on November 22. It was my first visit with a physician’s assistant named Sally Holland. The first thing I told her was that I smoked marijuana. She asked if I vaporized? I told her I didn’t. Then I said my husband and I got the lifetime achievement award from High Times Magazine last June. Her response was that her brother was the general counsel for High Times. I knew at that point that Sally and I would get along and I could trust her and didn’t have to educate her about cannabis. Lovely...

Sally said that I had bronchitis, which I usually get at least once a year. She asked when was the last time I had a chest x-ray. I said a long time. She sent me for a chest x-ray and gave me antibiotics. The next day Sally called to tell me I had pneumonia.

I saw Sally again on November 30 for a follow-up. I was still sick and was given more antibiotics. Sally informed me that the x-ray showed a growth on my right lung, which would need to be checked out. My first response was “cut it out”  if it was so small. I wanted to be aggressive. I saw Sally again on December 9. She sent me for lab work and said the doctor wanted to see me.

On December 21, I saw Gary Feldman, MD, my primary care physician, who gave me a thorough workup. I told Gary about the heat I had felt in the middle of my chest for almost a year. The tumor and lymph nodes were right on my heart chakra. He sent me for a CT scan on December 23.

The CT scan showed that the tumor on my lung measured 23 x 28 millimeters. [25.4 millimeters = one inch.] There was also a growth on my left kidney.

On January 4th, 2012, I had another CT scan to evaluate the growth they had found on my kidney.

On January 5th I had an echocardiogram, a procedure using ultrasound to show a two-dimensional picture of the heart.

On January 6th I had a CT fine-needle aspiration biopsy of the lung. Tissue was taken for analysis in a lab.  

Venezuela to probe Chavez cancer death conspiracy

Published time: March 12, 2013 17:44

Venezuela is to formally investigate suspicions late President Hugo Chavez’s was afflicted with cancer after being poisoned by foreign enemies, the government said.

Acting President Nicolas Maduro vowed to set up an inquiry into the allegation, which was first leveled by Chavez after being diagnosed with cancer in 2011. Foreign scientists will also be invited to join a government commission to investigate the claim.  

“We will seek the truth,” Reuters cites Maduro as telling regional TV network Telesur late on Monday. “We have the intuition that our commander, Chavez, was poisoned by dark forces that wanted him out of the way.”

Maduro said it was too early to determine the exact root of the cancer which was discovered in Chavez’s pelvic region in June 2011, but charged that the United States had laboratories which were experienced in manufacturing diseases.

"He had a cancer that broke all norms," the agency cites Maduro as saying. "Everything seems to indicate that they affected his health using the most advanced techniques ... He had that intuition from the beginning."

Chavez reportedly underwent four surgeries in Cuba, before dying of respiratory failure after the cancer metastasized in in his lungs.

Maduro compared the conspiracy surrounding Chavez’s death to allegations that Israeli agents poisoned Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat to death in 2004.

In December 2011, Chavez speculated that the United States could be infecting the regions leaders with cancer after Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

"I don't want to make any reckless accusations," Chavez said before asking: “Would it be strange if [the United States] had developed a technology to induce cancer, and for no one to know it?"

Maduro repeated the accusation last week on the eve of Chavez’s death.

"Behind all of [the plots] are the enemies of the fatherland," he said on state television before announcing the expulsion of two US Air Force officials for spying on the military and plotting to destabilize the country.

Venezuela’s opposition has lambasted the claim as another Chavez-style conspiracy theory intended to distract people from real issues gripping the country in the run up to the snap presidential election called for April 14.

As Tuesday marked the last day of official mourning for Chavez, ceremonies are likely to continue, fueling claims by the opposition that the government is exploiting Chavez’s death to hold onto power.

While launching his candidacy on Monday, Maduro began his speech with a recording of Chavez singing the national anthem, sending many of his supporters into tears.

The pro-business state governor Henrique Capriles, who is running for the opposition’s Democratic Unity coalition, was quick to remind both his supporters and detractors that the charismatic socialist reformer Chavez was not his opponent.

“[Maduro] is not Chávez and you all know it,” The Christian Science Monitor quotes him as saying while announcing his candidacy on Sunday. “President Chávez is no longer here.”

Maduro, a former bus driver and Chavez's handpicked successor, has attempted to deflect criticism that he lacks the former president’s rhetorical flair by painting himself as a working class hero.

“I’m a man of the street. … I’m not Chávez,” he said Sunday. “I’m interim president, commander of the armed forces and presidential candidate because this is what Chávez decided and I’m following his orders.”   

Polls taken before Chavez's death gave Maduro a 10 point lead over Capriles, who lost to Chavez in last October’s presidential poll.

Venezuela expels two US embassy officials amid Chavez cancer conspiracy

Vice President Nicolas Maduro said President Hugo Chavez's enemies had poisoned him with cancer before announcing that two US Air Force officials would be expelled from the country for spying on the military and plotting to destabilize the country.

Maduro identified one American as the Air Force attaché and said he had 24 hours to leave the country.

"We are aware of the allegations made by Venezuelan Vice President Maduro over state-run television in Caracas, and can confirm that our Air Attache, Col. David Delmonico, is en route back to the United States," spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Todd Breasseale said in a statement.

Foreign Minister Elias Jaua later announced that two Air Force officials in total had been named "persona non grata" and were being kicked out of  Venezuela, AFP reports.

Maduro also accused President Hugo Chavez's enemies of poisoning him with the cancer he has been battling for nearly two years.

"Behind all of [the plots] are the enemies of the fatherland," he said on state television.

Maduro spoke just hours after the government announced Chavez was in "very delicate" health after undergoing cancer surgery in December. Maduro said the president was suffering through the "most difficult hours" since the operation.

In December 2011, Chavez speculated that the United States could be infecting the regions leaders with cancer  after Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

"I don't want to make any reckless accusations," Chavez said in light of something he found to be "very, very strange."

“Would it be strange if [the United States] had developed a technology to induce cancer, and for no one to know it?" he asked.

In June 2011 Chavez confirmed in a televised address that he was recovering from an operation to remove an abscessed tumor with cancerous cells from his pelvic region. The following month, he returned to Cuba to receive further treatment.

In July 2012, Chavez declared that he had fully recovered from cancer just three months before the presidential poll. Chavez won a fourth term in the October election, only to return to Cuba the following month to receive more treatment.

In December, Chávez announced he would undergo a new operation after doctors in Cuba detected malignant cells. Chavez suffered a series of complications following the surgery which had caused respiratory failures.

Chavez was unable to attend his inauguration in January due to poor health, and only returned to Venezuela the following month.

On Friday, Maduro announced for the first time that Chavez had been receiving chemotherapy in Venezuela and was continuing to “battle for his life.

The Vice President’s comments come as the Venezuelan government and senior army officials are said to be holding an emergency meeting, according to the local state TV. The report did not mention the planned agenda of the meeting, which sparked media speculation as to whether Chavez was soon leaving his post. Rumors of Chavez possibly returning to Cuba to continue his cancer treatment spread after unnamed Venezuelan sources reported it to ABC.

Hugo Chavéz, the president of  Venezuela, has died in a military hospital after a long battle against cancer, Reuters has reported, prompting a wave of mourning in the country he ruled since 1999 with a globally distinctive and influential style of leadership.

The symbol of Latin American socialism succumbed to a respiratory infection on Tuesday evening, 21 months after he first revealed he had a tumour. He had not been seen in public for three months since undergoing emergency surgery in Cuba on 11 December.

He will be given a state funeral in Caracas, likely to be attended by millions of supporters and leftwing leaders from across the globe who have been inspired by Chavéz's doctrine of "Bolivarian 21st-century socialism", grateful for the subsidised energy he provided or simply impressed by his charisma.

His death will also trigger a presidential election, which must be held within 30 days, to decide who controls the world's greatest untapped reserves of oil. Chavéz's designated successor is vice-president Nicolás Maduro, who is likely to face Henrique Capriles, the losing  opposition candidate in the most recent presidential election. Until then, according to the constitution, the interim president should be the head of the national assembly, Diosdado Cabello.

Replacing one of most colourful figures on the global political landscape will be an immense challenge. Born to a poor family on the plains, Chavéz became a tank commander and a devotee of South America's liberator, Simón Bolívar. A failed coup in 1992 propelled him into the limelight but it was his ballot box triumphs that made him a inspiration for the resurgent Latin American left and the most outspoken – and often humorous – critic of the US, the war in Iraq and former president George W Bush, whom he described as a "donkey" and a "devil".

Formerly one of the most dynamic political leaders in the world with a globe-trotting schedule and a weekly, unscripted TV broadcast that usually went on for hours, Chavéz shocked his countrymen in June 2011 when he revealed that Cuban surgeons had removed a baseball-sized tumour from his pelvic region,

After that, he underwent several rounds of chemotherapy and two more operations in what he described as a "battle for health and for life". His medical records were never made public, prompting widespread speculation about his imminent demise, but he and his supporters insisted he was recovering. Before the presidential election in October 2012, aides claimed he was well enough to complete a full term of office.

During that campaign, Chávez was clearly affected by his illness. But although he made fewer and shorter appearances, he won more votes than in any of his earlier election battles, prompting him to proclaim victory in a "perfect battle".

Fears about his health escalated after he rushed to Cuba for hyperbaric oxygen treatment on 27 November. Less than a fortnight later, he made a televised address in which he said that doctors had discovered malignant cells that required surgery and urged Venezuelans to vote for Maduro if he was incapacitated.

Since his operation in December, Chávez has been visited by family members and several of his closest political allies, including Fidel and Raul Castro of Cuba, Ecuadorean president Rafael Correa and Bolivian president Evo Morales.

Beyond a set of four photographs released last month that showed a remarkably hearty looking Chavez smiling in a hospital bed and flanked by his daughters, the president has not been seen or heard for three months. This prompted frequent rumours that the president was dead or on life support. The government denied this and said he continued to run the country by writing down his orders.

Fukushima infant cancer risks outlined in new WHO report

Published time: February 28, 2013 19:31

The Fukushima disaster has resulted in high cancer risks for children living nearby: The WHO estimated a 70 percent increase in the risk that girls residing within 12 miles radius of the epicenter will develop thyroid cancer.

A magnitude-9 earthquake and subsequent tsunami killed nearly 19,000 people after triggering a meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in March 2011. Following the radioactive meltdown – the worst since the 1986 Chernobyl power plant disaster – scientists have closely measured the potential long-term impact of the spread of radiation.

An increase in child cancer rates was discovered in the most contaminated areas of Fukushima Prefecture, with young girls in the area at a 70 percent increased risk of contracting thyroid cancer. The standard risk is 0.75 percent, rising to 1.25 in the plant area. 

There was a 4 percent increased chance of all solid cancers in females exposed as infants, a 6 percent increased risk of breast cancer in the same group, and around a 7 percent increased risk of leukemia in males exposed as infants. In these areas, a radiation dose of approximately 50 milli-sieverts was measured.

“Apart from emergency workers, the most affected people were those who remained in some highly contaminated towns and villages to the northwest of the power station for up to four months before evacuation,” Jim Smith, professor of Environmental Science at the University of Portsmouth in England told Reuters.

In the second-most contaminated region, just outside the 12-mile radius of the evacuation zone but still inside the prefecture, these risk figures were halved. As the Fukuhsima disaster struck, residents living within 18 miles of the plant were advised to evacuate. In other areas of Fukushima Prefecture, and the rest of Japan, no observable increases in cancer were expected.

The results from those immediately infected area have, however, led to calls for continued monitoring of the potentially adverse effects.

A 200-page report – titled ‘Health Risk Assessment from the nuclear accident after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami based on preliminary dose estimation’ – was conducted by several international officials from fields such as radiation risk modeling, epidemiology, public health and radiation effects.

The assessment also covered cases of emergency workers in the area, one-third of whom are expected to see increased risks of cancer compared to the local population.

No rise is expected for miscarriages, stillbirths and other conditions stemming from the radiation in infants conceived after the accident, the report said.

“The WHO report underlines the need for long-term health monitoring of those who are at high risk, along with the provision of necessary medical follow-up and support services,” WHO Director for Public Health and Environment Dr. Maria Neira said.

- Those exposed to radiation in the most severely contaminated areas in Fukushima Prefecture received a 50 milli-sievert (MSV) lifetime radiation dose.

- Exposure to high levels of radiation can result in radiation sickness. A high level is considered to be over one ‘gray,’ the unit in which a clear absorbed dose of radiation is measured. Over four grays is a fatal dose for half of all healthy adults.

- A sievert is a gray weighted by the effectiveness of a particular type of radiation. Grays do not take into account the impact of biological factors, or the radiation type’s effectiveness at damaging tissue.

- The sievert measures lower levels of radiation, and is used when assessing long-term risk, rather than the immediate impact of exposure. There are 1,000 MSV in a sievert.

- People safely absorb low levels of radiation in day-to-day life, averaging about 2 MSV per year. A 1,000 MSV dose would cause radiation sickness, but stop short of killing adults. With a 100 MSV dose, an increase in cancer risks is evident.

Trillions for Wars, None For Cancer Stricken Children

Team cures cancer with innovative treatment, child-patients stuck with staggering bills.

In “On the Cusp of Ending Big Pharma,” a coming revolution in biology and medicine made possible by a better understanding of genetics and gene therapy was described in detail. Almost as if to validate the premise of having the public begin getting directly involved in not only understanding genetics and gene therapy, but begin building the infrastructure at a local level to pursue research and development, as well as implement eventual techniques and treatments, Philly.com has just recently published a follow up to an incredible story.

Titled, “Girl’s gene-therapy estimate gives Children’s Hospital a shiner,”
the article describes a clinical trial in which gene therapy was used
to treat 10 adults and 2 children suffering from cancer, most of whom have had their cancer go into
remission, and the staggering bills the treatment incurred. Charities
and insurance assisted at least one patient, while another, a 5 year
old Croatian girl, was left with a $837,000 bill.

Medical care is expensive. It requires the absolute cutting edge in technology, skilled doctors and technicians to utilize it in the care of patients, all within an economic paradigm where demand vastly outnumbers supply. What could be done to reduce the disparity between supply and demand? And what can be done until then to ensure people get the absolute best treatment possible? Or should a 5 year old girl perish because she can’t afford experimental treatment when all other options were sure to fail?

Trillions for War

Soldiers fighting the fruitless decade long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan didn’t need to buy their own weapons, procure their own transportation to the warzone, buy their own meals, and when they were injured, pay for their own medical treatment. Indeed, these fruitless wars built openly on categorically false premises, were subsidized by trillions of dollars from American tax payers despite the wars having no public support. Since these two fruitless wars sold upon a pack of lies, the United States has conducted combat operations in Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Uganda, inside Pakistan, Mali, and covertly in Iran. Again, subsidized by trillions of tax payer dollars. 

Image: US Marine Corps General Smedley Butler was a two-time Medal of Honor recipient, and anti-war. He wrote “War is a Racket.”  Despite the torrent of pro-war propaganda we are bombarded with, and all the pretexts and excuses used to sell endless global conflict, it is indeed a racket perpetrated by big-business interests at the rest of humanity’s expense, and has been for a long time.
….

For unpopular wars fought upon false premises, sold by practiced liars across the corporate media, there seems to be an endless torrent of cash. In turn, this money doesn’t simply go into a fiscal blackhole. Instead, it ends up in the profit margins of Fortune 500 corporations, from the big-defense contractors arming and supplying military operations, to big-oil and construction contractors building in the wake of these operations. It is a well understood racket that casts a dark shadow on Western society and has very real implications for modern human civilization.

  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t

Imagine if these trillions instead went somewhere else. Imagine if cancer research and treatment was subsidized with the same impetus as wars of profit. Imagine if improving education, infrastructure, and the means by which we could accelerate medical research and development and thereby reduce the disparity between supply and demand was done with the same fervor we pursue wars abroad.


Our Problem, Our Challenge 

We could hold our breath, march with signs, and continue to vote hoping eventually someone will come to office and fix this perpetual injustice. Or instead, we can realize that our faith and investments in time, money, energy, and attention to this corrupt system is why we have this problem in the first place.

There are several steps we can take now to begin tilting the balance away from the ruling class and their pet projects pursued at our expense and toward the things that really affect us, like our children dying from cancer and medical treatment that is too expensive to afford. And as we take these steps, people should continue fighting for medical care subsidies as a stop gap measure. If there is money for perpetual, unnecessary war, there is money for medical care.

1. Improve Education: Medical treatment is expensive because of immense demand for a small supply of both the technology used to treat people, and the skilled doctors and technicians that use that technology. That technology is in turn scarce, because of the lack of skilled designers and engineers working to develop it.

By improving real, relevant, technical education in the fields of design, engineering, science, and medicine, and by making such an education available to all, would be one step toward increasing the supply versus demand. Online, there are vast resources available for free, from some of the most prestigious universities in the world on subjects ranging from basic math and science, to more specific topics like biology, medicine, genetics, and their applications.

While there is no substitute for a proper medical school education, local organizations called DIYbio labs are springing up around the world and creating an environment where regular people can learn and practice techniques in modern biology, especially in the field of genetics. Just as hackerspaces have begun contributing to, and spinning off into small and medium businesses, while driving the advancement of technology, DIYbio labs can augment the existing medical infrastructure of a given society.

Additionally, people should not abandon efforts to improve traditional education.

2. Build Local Infrastructure: DIYbio labs are one way of bringing medical research and development, however small of a scale it may be on for now, into their local communities. Building up after-school and weekend programs to educate people in basic science and particularly biology, genetics, and medicine helps raise overall awareness of the issues at hand and their possible solutions.

Already, high schools are beginning to participate in MIT’s iGEM competition, an annual synthetic biology event where teams from around the world engineer biological components to solve a specific problem. Schools that become involved in iGem must build up both their physical infrastructure and their human capital to compete, and by doing so, lay the foundation for more permanent and relevant  research and development when they return home.

3. Reclaim Our Institutions: With a well established infrastructure developing both technology and human capital, a community is better positioned not only to understand what state and national institutions are doing in terms of medical research and clinical trials, but are able to partner with them and augment their efforts. Furthermore, a human connection is established between institutions and the people they were designed in the first place to serve.

The day will come where technology makes medical care affordable for all, reducing or eliminating the need to subsidize it. Until that day comes, we must balance our pursuit for “health care policy” with developing real, pragmatic, technical health care progress. 

How? 

It starts with something as simple as getting a few people around a single table and talking. Identify who may already have an interest in the particular fields you plan on tackling. Look for the nearest local groups already doing this, either as hackerspaces or as DIYbio labs. Look for schools nearby already participating in iGEM and see what you could to to help, or expand on their work.

If you are not interested in medicine, even a standard hackerspace working on a wide range of projects could help build local infrastructure that could be used to help advance DIYbio groups. Biomedical technology is grounded in the same fundamental design principles and manufacturing techniques as any other engineering discipline.  

Start or join an after-school program that teaches real skills and practical knowledge to students – including science, math, design, engineering, etc. Look into OpenCourseWare online and raise awareness. Start a blog collecting your favorite courses.

Taking human capital out of the coffers of the ruling class, and placing it back where it belongs, amongst the people from which it was drawn, begins the rebalancing of power, and ends paradigms where trillions can be spend on endless wars of profit, and none is left for cancer-stricken children, even when we’ve developed cures.

The choice is ours, but unlike in faux-democracy, we will have to do more than simply cast a ballot to exercise this choice. It will be daily, patient, sometimes frustrating work to build the infrastructure and human capital we need to rebalance this equation and reclaim our destiny. Self-determination is not a spectator sport, it is something you either do, or do without. Don’t wait for your child to be the one struck by cancer and your family stuck with a million-dollar medical bill – that is – if you are lucky enough to get access to the latest treatment in the first place. Start working now to fix this immense injustice.

Or instead, we can realize that our faith and investments in time, money, energy, and attention to this corrupt system is why we have this problem in the first place.

There are several steps we can take now to begin tilting the balance away from the ruling class and their pet projects pursued at our expense and toward the things that really affect us, like our children dying from cancer and medical treatment that is too expensive to afford. And as we take these steps, people should continue fighting for medical care subsidies as a stop gap measure. If there is money for perpetual, unnecessary war, there is money for medical care.

1. Improve Education: Medical treatment is expensive because of immense demand for a small supply of both the technology used to treat people, and the skilled doctors and technicians that use that technology. That technology is in turn scarce, because of the lack of skilled designers and engineers working to develop it.

By improving real, relevant, technical education in the fields of design, engineering, science, and medicine, and by making such an education available to all, would be one step toward increasing the supply versus demand. Online, there are vast resources available for free, from some of the most prestigious universities in the world on subjects ranging from basic math and science, to more specific topics like biology, medicine, genetics, and their applications.

While there is no substitute for a proper medical school education, local organizations called DIYbio labs are springing up around the world and creating an environment where regular people can learn and practice techniques in modern biology, especially in the field of genetics. Just as hackerspaces have begun contributing to, and spinning off into small and medium businesses, while driving the advancement of technology, DIYbio labs can augment the existing medical infrastructure of a given society.

Additionally, people should not abandon efforts to improve traditional education.

2. Build Local Infrastructure: DIYbio labs are one way of bringing medical research and development, however small of a scale it may be on for now, into their local communities. Building up after-school and weekend programs to educate people in basic science and particularly biology, genetics, and medicine helps raise overall awareness of the issues at hand and their possible solutions.

Already, high schools are beginning to participate in MIT’s iGEM competition, an annual synthetic biology event where teams from around the world engineer biological components to solve a specific problem. Schools that become involved in iGem must build up both their physical infrastructure and their human capital to compete, and by doing so, lay the foundation for more permanent and relevant  research and development when they return home.

3. Reclaim Our Institutions: With a well established infrastructure developing both technology and human capital, a community is better positioned not only to understand what state and national institutions are doing in terms of medical research and clinical trials, but are able to partner with them and augment their efforts. Furthermore, a human connection is established between institutions and the people they were designed in the first place to serve.

The day will come where technology makes medical care affordable for all, reducing or eliminating the need to subsidize it. Until that day comes, we must balance our pursuit for “health care policy” with developing real, pragmatic, technical health care progress.

How? 

It starts with something as simple as getting a few people around a single table and talking. Identify who may already have an interest in the particular fields you plan on tackling. Look for the nearest local groups already doing this, either as hackerspaces or as DIYbio labs. Look for schools nearby already participating in iGEM and see what you could to to help, or expand on their work.

If you are not interested in medicine, even a standard hackerspace working on a wide range of projects could help build local infrastructure that could be used to help advance DIYbio groups. Biomedical technology is grounded in the same fundamental design principles and manufacturing techniques as any other engineering discipline.

Start or join an after-school program that teaches real skills and practical knowledge to students – including science, math, design, engineering, etc. Look into OpenCourseWare online and raise awareness. Start a blog collecting your favorite courses.

Taking human capital out of the coffers of the ruling class, and placing it back where it belongs, amongst the people from which it was drawn, begins the rebalancing of power, and ends paradigms where trillions can be spend on endless wars of profit, and none is left for cancer-stricken children, even when we’ve developed cures.

The choice is ours, but unlike in faux-democracy, we will have to do more than simply cast a ballot to exercise this choice. It will be daily, patient, sometimes frustrating work to build the infrastructure and human capital we need to rebalance this equation and reclaim our destiny. Self-determination is not a spectator sport, it is something you either do, or do without. Don’t wait for your child to be the one struck by cancer and your family stuck with a million-dollar medical bill – that is – if you are lucky enough to get access to the latest treatment in the first place. Start working now to fix this immense injustice.

Say It Ain’t So — A Can of Soda a Day Can Increase the...

A new medical study poses huge questions for the future of soft drinks.

According to a Swedish study from Lund University recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it takes a single daily can of soda to increase a man's  risk of prostate cancer by 40 percent, compared to a man who never touches the stuff. 

So where is the public outcry warning Americans, who are always in search of newer and better drugs anyway, off these lucrative yet carcinogenic vehicles for addictive substances like caffeine, sugar and perhaps worse? They are likely hiding, at least for now, from an industry loathe to let cold-hearted science and much-needed reason lead the way.

"When it comes to studies of soda consumption and chronic disease risk, the only superior alternative to a prospective cohort study would be to conduct a randomized, controlled trial, where you assign one group to drink high amounts soda over 20 years, and the other group to not consume soda," senior researcher  Isabel Drake, who led Lund University's soda cancer study, told AlterNet. "This, of course, is unethical and never going to be feasible. There are situations like this one, to assess for causal associations between soda consumption and cancer or other chronic diseases, where observational studies are realistically the best study design to address causal associations."

Causality is the central question when it comes to  sodas, whose lineage leads to 18th and 19th century druggists, scientists and other whitecoats. Since then, sodas have metamorphosed from chemical experiments into ubiquitous commodities pounded out by powerhouse multinationals like Coca-Cola and Pepsi, who together lord over about 90 percent of the market. Clocking around $60 billion a year,  soda competes for drug market share with cannabis and its godfather, cocaine.

You'll notice that nowhere in that short history lesson did you hear anything about health and wellness. That's because sodas have zero redeeming nutritional value.

But they have had lethal additives like  4-methylimidazole, the ammonia-sulfite caramel coloring that is also a known animal carcinogen. The flavorless die brought nothing to products like Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper and more that carried it, and was toxic enough to activate a new California law requiring disclosure of cancer risk -- which, in turn, was enough to  motivate Coke and Pepsi to quickly discard it while protesting the controversy as "scientifically unfounded." An  appeal to the FDA for ban from the Center for Science in the Public Interest likely helped. But 4-methylimidazole is just one soda headache among many.

"Caramel is one concern that the industry is in the process of largely solving," CSPI co-founder and executive director  Michael F. Jacobson told AlterNet. "Also, we have concerns about  aspartame, acesulfame-potassium and saccharin, which is rarely used in drinks."

Lund's study is the latest in a roll-call of soda cancer flags. Drake and colleagues followed 8,000 men aged 45-73 for an average of 15 years, and found that 40 percent of those who downed barely 12 ounces of soda a day were likely to contract a disease that kills a million of them a year. Previous research has warned of  increased risk of esophageal cancer. University of Minnesota School of Public Health professor of epidemiology  Mark Pereira recently led a  study finding that 87 percent of his over 60,000 test subjects were likely to develop  pancreatic cancer, whose median survival for 80 percent of afflicted individuals hovers between six to 10 months. The soda cancer warning signs continue to siren.

"The important take away from our study is that habitual consumption of soft drinks may be linked to an increased risk of pancreatic cancer," Noel Mueller, University of Minnesota School of Public Health Ph.D. student and first author on Pereira's study, told AlterNet. "In response to any criticisms, I'd like to point out that our results align with a recent  Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health meta-analysis of studies on this topic, including ours, which found that soft drink consumption was indeed positively associated with pancreatic cancer risk."

Cancer survivor says she was fired for medical leave

After taking leave to get a mastectomy, a breast cancer survivor was fired from her job the day before she was scheduled to go back to work, allegedly because she had taken too much medical leave.

Vivienne Parra, 39, is now suing her former employer for what she considers an unjust termination. The Oceanside, Calif., woman took three weeks of leave to undergo cancer treatment and a mastectomy in 2009, followed by three more weeks when she delivered a baby.

The woman claims she went to work whenever she was physically capable of it during those six weeks. She says always gave her employer advance notice and documentation whenever she had to take medical leave.

“I put all my effort into this job and even how sick I was I came in. I didn’t have my hair, I’d come in, and I worked hard and I was pregnant; tired from day one,” Parra told NBC News.

The woman’s boss at the Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center allegedly fired her by claiming that “she no longer desired employment,” the lawsuit states.

“Employers are using the fact that their employees are on leave as a way to get rid of them,” said David Scher, Parras’ attorney.

If Parra was indeed fired for seeking breast cancer treatment, then her employer may be in violation of federal laws that protect workers with disabilities from discrimination at the workplace, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, the latter of which requires employers to provide their workers with leave for personal and family reasons including illness and pregnancy.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, an agency that enforces anti-discrimination laws, conducted a three-year investigation of Parra’s case and believes that she “was discharged based on her disability in violation of the [Americans with Disabilities Act],” the agency wrote in a letter obtained by the Washington Post.

Parra’s former employer is insisting that the woman did not file the paperwork to request time off and that she had run out of days to use. R. Scott Oswald of the Employment Law Group said that the post-recession economy has increasingly prompted employers to unjustly fire their workers.

In 2005, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed 14,893 charges of disability discrimination in the US. In 2011, it filed 25,742 cases – a record high.

“I hope the managers I worked for understand all I wanted was help from them so I could pursue what I needed to do to get better,” Parra told the Post.

‘Bucket List’ Cancer Teenager Alice Dies

A teenager who gained nationwide fame after writing a "bucket list" of things to do before she died has lost her battle with cancer at the age of 17.

Alice Pyne, from Ulverston in Cumbria, managed to complete most of her list, including meeting Take That and going whale watching.

She was feted by celebrities and politicians as the nation rallied to help her fulfil her dreams.

The list - part of her blog - attracted the attention of footballer Rio Ferdinand, Hollywood actor Channing Tatum and TV host Philip Schofield.

Alice's idea was inspired by the film The Bucket List, which follows Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as they embark on a road trip to do things they want to before they "kick the bucket".

The teenager, who lived with her parents, Simon and Vicky, and younger sister, Milly, achieved many of her wishes, she told in her blog.

She died on Saturday after battling illness for the past six years.

In a posting on Alice’s blog, her mother Vicky gave the sad news.

"Our darling girl, Alice, gained her angel wings today. She passed away peacefully with Simon, Milly and myself by her side," she wrote.

"We are devastated and know that our lives will never again be the same."

Crossword Setter Araucaria Sets Cancer Clue

A well-loved national newspaper crossword setter has used one of his own puzzles to announce that he is terminally ill.

The Rev John Graham, who goes by the pseudonym Araucaria  - from the Latin for the monkey puzzle tree - as The Guardian's puzzle setter, revealed he was dying of cancer in Friday's crossword.

Above a cryptic crossword was the message: "Araucaria has 18 down of the 19, which is being treated with 13 15."

Readers who solved the puzzle discovered this meant he had cancer of the oesophagus, and was receiving palliative care.

Mr Graham, from Cambridge, told the Guardian: "It seemed the natural thing to do somehow. It just seemed right."

Doctors do not know how much longer he has to live.

The 91-year-old said he was touched by the reaction to his crossword, which first appeared in the 1 Across puzzle magazine in December.

"People have been ringing and sending me cards," he said. "It's been very nice, but I can't reply to them all."

He says he does not intend to refer to his illness in future crosswords.

"I should think this is a one-off because I don't know what else there will be to say," he added.
