    Parents often think their children grow up too quickly, but few are prepared for the problem that Dr. Michael Dedekian and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical School reported recently.

    At the annual Pediatric Academic Society meeting in May in San Francisco, they presented a report that described how a preschool-age girl, and then her kindergarten-age brother, mysteriously began growing pubic hair. These cases were not isolated; in 2004, pediatric endocrinolo

    Who controls the food controls the people.
    This is a fact well known by the minions within the United Nations, as Catherine Bertini, Director of the UN World Food Program boldly announced at the Beijing Woman's Conference (September, 1995):

    "Food is power. We use it to change behavior. Some may call that bribery. We do not apologize".

    Bertini's credentials precede her UN position, as a former Confidential Assistant to New York State Governor Nelson Rockefeller. In The Next Million Years, (1952) by Charles Galton Darwin, grandson of evolutionist Charles R. Darwin, the objective is made quite clear:

    "It is in the biological sciences that the most exciting possibilities suggest themselves... I will only speculate on a few among these possibilities which might have great effects on human life.

    "I have already referred to the possibility of quite new sources of food and I need not enlarge on that further.

    ". . . hormones, those internal chemical secretions which so largely regulate the operations of the human body. The artificial use of hormones has already been shown to have profound effects on the behaviour of animals. . . might have similar effects on man. . .

    ". . . might be a drug, which... removed the urgency of sexual desire, and so reproduced in humanity the status of workers in a beehive.

    "To produce effects of these kinds there must be a master and the master must be above and not subject to the procedure he is enforcing on his subjects."

    FDA Is Set To Approve Milk, Meat From Clones posted 10/17/2006, 10:34 PM (Washington Post)
    [Category: Health]
    Three years after the Food and Drug Administration first hinted that it might permit the sale of milk and meat from cloned animals, prompting public reactions that ranged from curiosity to disgust, the agency is poised to endorse marketing of the mass-produced animals for public consumption.

    The decision, expected by the end of this year, is based largely on new data indicating that milk and meat from cloned livestock and their offspring pose no unique risks to consumers.

    Diet products "boost appetite" posted 10/16/2006, 11:04 PM (Herald Sun)
    [Category: Health]
    DIET products make people eat more, says nutritional toxicologist Peter Dingle.
    He said some sweeteners in diet products were linked with stimulating appetite.

    "Aspartame, commonly known as the sweetener NutraSweet, is a neuro-stimulant linked with stimulating appetite, so it can make you hungry," Prof Dingle, associate professor in health and the environment at Murdoch University, said.

    "Diet stuff doesn't satisfy hunger like conventional food, because hung

    (WASHINGTON, April 5) — Boys who drink water with levels of fluoride considered safe by federal guidelines are five times more likely to have a rare bone cancer than boys who drink unfluoridated water, according to a study by Harvard University scientists published in a peer-reviewed journal.

    The study, led by Dr. Elise Bassin and published online today in Cancer Causes and Control, the official journal of the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention, found a strong link between fluor

    The United States is the world leader in nanotechnology -- the newly blossoming science of making incredibly small materials and devices -- but is not paying enough attention to the environmental, health and safety risks posed by nanoscale products, says a report released yesterday by the independent National Research Council.

    If federal officials, business leaders and others do not devise a plan to fill the gaps in their knowledge of nanotech safety, the report warns, the field's

    U.S. FDA Told to Watch Nanotech Products for Risks posted 10/12/2006, 11:04 PM (Reuters)

    BETHESDA, Md. -- The growing number of cosmetics, drugs other products made using nanotechnology need more attention from U.S. regulators to make sure they are safe for humans and the planet, consumer and environmental groups told a government hearing Tuesday.

    Nanotechnology is the design and use of particles as small as one-billionth of a meter. A human hair, by contrast, is about 80,000 nanometers across.

    Oct. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Ballay Pharmaceuticals Inc. had a choice nine years ago: seek U.S. approval to sell a prescription decongestant or slip the drug on the market and hope regulators wouldn't order it off.

    The company chose to market the medicine, Balamine DM, to doctors and pharmacies without the consent of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the agency didn't stop Wimberley, Texas-based Ballay.

    What if the candy maker Mars could come up with an additive to the coating of its M&M’s and Skittles that would keep them fresher longer and inhibit melting? Or if scientists at Unilever could shrink the fat particles (and thereby the calories) in premium ice cream without sacrificing its taste and feel?

    These ideas are still laboratory dreams. The common thread in these research projects and in product development at many other food companies is nanotechnology, the name for a gr

    WASHINGTON — For years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has maintained that no direct link exists between early vaccinations and developmental disorders in children, but not everyone wants to give the last word on the subject to the government public health agency.
