Political update from the Alliance for Natural Health

Are endoscopes and colonoscopes killing people?
The Alliance for Natural Health USA
The FDA knew all about the endoscope risk six years ago, but has ignored it. Over the last few years, you may have seen one of the several tragic stories of antibiotic-resistant "superbug" outbreaks in major hospitals that have killed dozens of patients and sickened hundreds more.

Sister Organizations

Sick Nation: The Medical Mercury Health Crisis
Richard P. Milner, executive director, Public Affairs Media Inc., writes: "Dear friends, will you help raise awareness of mercury in vaccines as a principal cause of Autism? We are launching a crowd funding campaign on IndieGoGo to do that and invite you to share the link with your membership. The campaign features our 15-minute proof of concept video, Do Vaccines Cause Autism? It shows that vaccine safety is at least controversial according to the science. In our virtual debate, biochemist Boyd Haley, Ph.D., disputes the claims of vaccine inventor/pitchman, Paul Offit, M.D., who is spearheading the current industry push to eliminate all vaccine exemptions, a violation of human rights. Offit claims that mercury is out of shots. But it is not. It's been reduced to 10 percent of 1988 levels, but is still at full dose in several others, including the multi-dose flu shot, which is recommended to pregnant women and injected into babies. It's also at full dose in vaccines exported from the U.K. and the U.S. to other countries! Aluminum synergistically enhances mercury toxicity. As they phased down mercury, vaccine makers increased aluminum. Thus increasing vaccine toxicity. So we're back where we started! Or worse. Since conventional medicine claims to be science-based and therefore superior to all other modalities, should we not listen when a scientist disagrees with a medical practitioner about the science underlying the notion of vaccine safety and effectiveness? We plan a series of more virtual debates as the spine for a documentary film on the vaccine injury story. It's not just Autism. Over 50 percent of our children have a chronic medical condition, apparently caused by vaccines, for which they regularly take a pharmaceutical! Please help get the word out and the film produced by sharing the link."
