Sunday, June 24th, A.D. 2012
Between Friday, June 15th, and Friday, June 22th, the bid prices for:

Gold fell 3.3 % from $1,626.70 to $1,572.30
Silver fell 6.4 % from $28.74 to $26.90
Platinum fell 3.3 % from $1,480 to $1,431
Palladium fell 2.7 % from $625 to $608
DJIA fell 1.0 % from 12,767.170 to 12,640.78
NASDAQ rose 0.7 % from 2,872.80 to 2,892.42
NYSE fell 0.6 % from 7,664.27 to 7,616.59
US Dollar Index rose 0.8 % from 81.55 to 82.24
Crude Oil fell 16.5 % from $95.96 to $80.15
Politically, economically and even socially, conditions of the world are far from returning to a state of normalcy.   With financial uncertainty within the Euro Zone one would think the price of gold and silver should be skyrocketing.  Gold is still is up over 6% for the year but yet everyone focuses on the correction from $1900 to the current level.  Gold’s  short lived break out above $1700 brought much more interest back in to the market but only to see prices drop to lower levels.  The long term for gold is still bullish. 

As written below, private banks are returning to gold as a top tier asset and you can be assured gold prices will rise.  I believe this is a step towards unifying the worlds banking system and brings us closer to a one world currency.  Last week the Hong Kong Exchange purchased the LME for $2.2 billion.   This huge deal could make if more difficult to manipulate precious metal prices.

Still we see a very strong demand for quality coins and even the generic group of coins held up very nicely against the recent drop in gold.  In fact, since April we saw approx. a $65 drop in spot gold prices but yet the generics only dropped by $10-$20 and some of the better grade certified Libertys saw gains.

This is what I have been saying.  True we saw huge gains in generic certified gold coins only to see that gain be eliminated.  But that’s ok.  The pendulum will swing back and the premiums will be regained far above their previous high.   It makes it a perfect time to add them to your portfolio.  The only downside risk is the gold price and the trend for gold is still our friend.

Two of the coins which seem to have a quick response to coin price increases are the MS63 and MS64 $20 Liberty. Today’s special will be the MS63 $20 Liberty.  ON APRIL 26, 2012 this coin sold for $2,042 and spot gold was $1651.  Today the retail price for a MS63 $20 Liberty - $ 2,150 a gain of $108 even though spot gold is decreased by $65.

For readers of this newsletter I am offering the MS63 $20 Liberty for $2,070 a savings of $80 per coin.

Make sure you call us at 1 800 375 4188 and remember to tell us you saw this special in the American Survival Newsletter.

Another interesting development in the silver market is the 90% Silver coinage has been depleted from inventories.  As of June 22, 2012 a surprising announcement by some of my largest buyers informed us there is no 90% silver coming in from the secondary market. This is an incredible and unfortunate turn of events for the silver buyer.  However Silver Eagles, Silver Rounds, Morgan Dollars, Peace Dollars, and bars are still available.

Thank you for your continued support.

Gold's Return
by Alfred Adask

Understanding the truth behind gold, banking and your risk and profit.

Economics is alleged to be a “science,” but if it is, it’s a very obscure science.  Much of whatever knowledge economics provides is almost incomprehensible.  Much of what can be understood is government propaganda (lies).

Nevertheless, if we can’t learn “the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” from economics, we can still learn some truth.
One means of discerning truth is by observing “coincidences”.  Some people deny the existence of innocent “coincidences”. I don’t.  Sometimes one person or group just happens to do something that another group or person also does at virtually the same time.  There might seem to be a correlation or even a conspiracy between the two groups--but, in fact, there’s merely an innocent “coincidence”. 

However, I also don’t deny that sometimes two seemingly disparate persons or groups perform virtually identical acts at virtually the same time based on a mutual agreement to do so.  Their similar acts might seem “coincidental,” but they are actually evidence of the two persons/groups working in concert.

When we see two powerful but seemingly separate groups or entities performing the same act simultaneously, we can suspect that something major is about to happen.

•  For example, on Monday, June 18th, week, Jim Willie wrote: 
“The Basel Committee for Bank Supervision, a group within the BIS, defines capital requirements through the so-called Basel III rules. The ultimate central bank is on the verge of declaring Gold to be a Tier-1 asset for commercial banks with 100% weighting.”

Mr. Willie described the “BIS” (Bank of International Settlements) as the “ultimate central bank”.  Thus, the BIS “is on the verge of declaring gold to be a Tier-1 asset for commercial [private rather than “central”] banks.”
Mr. Willie continued:

“Curiously, [gold] is currently a Tier-3 category with just a 50% risk weighting. . . . The [private banks’ former] incentive away from Gold toward risky assets such as stock, currency, and debt-related assets has turned disastrous.  A category upgrade in gold would effectively drive up its value. . . .  Gold is ideal [collateral] as it bears no credit risk, and has no counter-party risk, [and has] only theft risk (due to desirability) and shell game risk (from certificate games).”

Mr. Willie didn’t say so, but I inferred from his text that the “BIS” (located at Basel, Switzerland) was recently setting new banking rules concerning the holding of gold for private European banks. 

•  While Mr. Willie apparently described an announcement by the BIS that gold had been resurrected as banking collateral in Europe—here in the US—the Federal Depository Insurance Corporation (FDIC) acting in concert with the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, posted a “Financial Institution Letter” (FIL-27-2012).  That Letter also proposed changes in US banking regulations that would allow and encourage private US banks to include gold bullion as a “Tier-1 asset” in their bank collateral. 

Gee, whatta coincidence, hmm?
I’ve read the FDIC’s 33-page Letter and most of it is so technical and convoluted that I doubt that anyone other than a bank attorney-cum-CPA could easily decipher that Letter and quickly grasp all of its implications.
Nevertheless—like the proverbial blind pig who can still find the occasional acorn—I can also glean a few implications from the FDIC’s technical jargon.  For example,

•  First, the FDIC’s entire Letter concerns US bank collateral.  By redefining what constitutes bank collateral, the FDIC implies that current bank collateral is insufficient to weather foreseeable economic storms.  The gov-co thereby admits that American banking may be systemically vulnerable.

•  Second , the Tier-1 collateral in the US will include six classes.  Three of these classes emanate from Washington DC—one from the Federal Reserve; two more from the federal government:

Cash” (fiat dollars issued by the Federal Reserve);
b) “Direct and unconditional claims on the U.S. government, its central bank, or a U.S. government agency”. 

Mere “claims” against the US will not be Tier-1 collateral.  Only those claims that are “unconditional” will be Tier-1 collateral.  In theory, this designation should increase the value of unconditional debt instruments to private banks but also diminish the value of all “conditional” debt instruments; and,

c) “Exposures unconditionally guaranteed by the U.S. government, its central bank, or a U.S. government agency.” 

I don’t understand how an “exposure” differs from a “claim”.   Perhaps an “exposure” is like an insurance policy that creates the possibility that someone might later make an actual “claim” against that “exposure”. 

In any case, of the six kinds of “zero-percentage-risk” assets to be recognized as “Tier-1” collateral for private, US banks, one (“Cash”) is issued by the Federal Reserve and is not guaranteed and two are issued by the federal government and must be “unconditional” or “unconditionally guaranteed”.  

Insofar as the government’s “unconditionally guaranteed” debt instruments are deemed to be Tier-1 assets, the demand and price for “unconditionally guaranteed” government debt instruments should rise. 

On the other hand, the perceived value and price of US debt instruments that are not “unconditionally guaranteed” are likely to fall.

If only “unconditionally guaranteed” US debt instruments carry a zero-interest-risk weight, does the FDIC anticipate an “emergency” default by the US government wherein the only debts that will be honored will be those that are “unconditionally guaranteed”?  Are those other US debt instruments that are “promised” but not “unconditionally guaranteed” already expected to be dishonored in a coming default?

Third , Tier-1 collateral for private banks will now include, “Claims on certain supranational entities (such as the International Monetary Fund) and certain multilateral development banking organizations.” 

These “supranational entities” will be agencies of the New World Order and global government.  Thus, the FDIC appears to be creating demand (and rising prices) for “globalist” monetary devices.  If so, US private bank collateral—and US private banks, themselves—will become increasingly “internationalized”. 

Note that unlike the two US-issued debt instruments that must be “unconditionally guaranteed,” claims on “supranational entities” need not be unconditional or guaranteed.   This implies that the “claims on supranational entities” are deemed to be equivalent to “cash” (fiat dollars) that can be spun out of thin air based on mere public confidence (read, “gullibility” or “naiveté’”) rather than “unconditional guarantees”.   Such “supranational” confidence might be grounds for creating a new global, fiat currency to compete with and/or replace the fiat dollar. 

Fourth, Tier-1 collateral for US private banks will now include, “Claims on and exposures unconditionally guaranteed by sovereign entities that meet certain criteria, as listed in the notice.”

These “sovereign entities” will include some foreign governments.   Again, we see evidence that the collateral for private banks in the US is moving away from US government debt instruments and toward “foreign” or “supranational” debt instruments.  Are the FDIC’s new rules intended to “internationalize” US private bank?

Note that the debt instruments against “sovereign entities” (foreign governments) must (like US gov-cp debt instruments) also be “unconditionally guaranteed ”.  Again, we see a faint suggestion that the FDIC anticipates an “emergency” default by not only by the US government, but also by many or most foreign governments.  In the midst of such default, only those governmental debt instruments that are “unconditionally guaranteed” will retain their value.  The value of debt instruments that are not “unconditionally guaranteed” will presumably disappear in a default.

The FDIC implies that world can have confidence in all the debt instruments issued by “supranational entities”—even if they carry no more guarantee than a fiat dollar—but not have confidence in any government’s debt instruments that are not “unconditionally guaranteed”.  This is a huge shift.  

Fifth , Tier-1, zero-percent-risk collateral for private banks will not include:  “General obligation claims on, and claims guaranteed by the full faith and credit of state and local governments (and any other public sector entity, as defined in the proposal) in the United States.” 

Instead, debts owed by state and local government and public sector entities will carry a 50% risk weight and be deemed significantly less valuable than the Tier-1 collateral. 

This increased risk weight should predispose private banks to prefer debt instruments issued by the feds and supranational entities rather than debt instruments issued by state and local governments.  If so, this bias should diminish the private bank’s appetite for state and local bonds and thereby decrease their availability and value. 

Less able to borrow from private banks, state and local governments will be forced to reduce their size and/or services—or increase taxes on local inhabitants. Thus, the FDIC Letter indicates that long term prospects for state/local governments aren’t rosy.

Again, we see evidence that the proposed FDIC rules may shift power from state and local governments towards the supranational

Sixth, There’ll be no mortgages in the private banks’, Tier-1, zero-percentage risk collateral.  While supranational and unconditionally-guaranteed US debt instruments hold aTier-1, zero -percent risk weight, the risk weight for mortgages will vary between 35% and 200%.

The increased risk weights attached to mortgages implies that: 1) banks will have less incentive to acquire mortgages; 2) the availability of mortgages will decline; 3) the cost/interest rates on mortgages will rise; 4) with less mortgages available, the price of homes should fall; 5) more home sales will be owner-financed; 6) more homes will be sold only for full payment in cash; 7) new home construction should decline; and 8) renting should rise. 

More importantly, if the FDIC is subtly encouraging private banks to distance themselves from mortgages, the FDIC is signaling that home construction is being abandoned as one of our economy’s primary economic engines.
If we’re not going to rely on home construction to sustain our economy, what will take its place?

Seventh, and most importantly, the FDIC Letter proposes that private banks should soon be able acquire “Gold bullion” as a Tier-1, zero-percentage-risk collateral. 

This is the big news.  Formerly, gold bullion carried a 50% risk weight and private banks had a disincentive to buy and hold gold as collateral.   Now, by adding gold to the list of “zero percent risk weighted” collateral, the new FDIC rules will not only allow, but encourage local, private banks to buy and hold gold.  That should significantly increase the demand and price of gold. 
More, by elevating gold to the stature of the Federal Reserve’s “cash” and the IMF’s supranational debt instruments, the FDIC implicitly admits that the system is no longer fighting gold, and will now embrace gold as an “asset” that’s at least as good as “cash” and perhaps superior.

Note that the FDIC Letter expressly declares that only “gold bullion” can be a zero percent risk asset.  Thus, there’ll be no such “zero percent risk weight” assigned to any paper gold assets.  This distinction should begin to open a serious wedge between the prices of physical and “paper” gold.

Insofar as both the BIS in Europe and the FDIC (Federal Reserve and Comptrollers’ Office) of the US all agree that gold should be elevated to the status of a Tier-1, zero-percent-risk collateral, I believe that FDIC proposal is a done deal.  I don’t know if Congress will enact laws to support this proposal in six weeks or six months, but given that the BIS, FDIC et al are in agreement, these proposed collateral laws seem virtually certain to be passed.
Insofar as gold is equated to “cash,” we may be close to declaring gold to be “money” and/or to declaring a new international currency based in whole or in part on gold.

Insofar as the FDIC and BIS have both declared that gold is a zero-percent risk asset, should private investors be apprehensive about buying gold?  Nope.

All of this suggests that the demand for, and price of, physical gold should jump significantly whenever the laws proposed in the FDIC Letter are enacted.  Conversely, the price for paper gold may fall.

Unlike US and foreign sovereign debt-instruments that require an “unconditional guarantee” to be listed at Tier-1 collateral, gold, of course, requires no such guarantee.  If the bullion is in the bank’s vault, no further guarantee is required.  All the banks need is actual possession.  The same principle should apply for most individuals who invest in gold.  If you can hold your own, your gold carries a “zero-percent risk weight”.  If you hold a paper receipt for gold that’s being held by someone else, you have greater risk.

Eighth , the gold bull market is far from over.  If anyone in the BIS or FDIC thought the price of gold was likely to suffer further, permanent declines, they’d never have elevated gold the “zero-percent-risk-weighted” collateral.   The major banking institution of the EU, the US and the world have recognized gold as a “zero percent risk” “Tier-1” asset at least as good as “cash” and IMF/supranational securities.  Can you name any stocks, or corporate or municipal bonds that are also held in such high “official” esteem? 

•  Gold has fought its way back into the Tier-1 assets “club”. 

According to the FDIC et al., only “cash” (fiat dollars), supranational (New World Order) debt instruments and gold need not be backed by unconditional guarantees.  This implies that these three forms of collateral are already viewed as more valuable than the “unconditionally guaranteed” debt instruments issued by the US gov-co and “foreign sovereigns”.  As such, gold is already one of the “last three men standing”. 

Any fool can see that gold will ultimately defeat fiat dollars as a risk-free collateral.  That would leave “two men standing”: “supranational” (unguaranteed) debt instruments and physical gold.

A struggle for dominance between “supranational” debt instruments and gold could be titanic and long-lived.  But if I had to guess, there won’t be a struggle.  The powers behind any supranational currency should be smart enough to see that in a real, head-on struggle, gold will win.  I’d bet the supranational entities are already saying “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”  Therefore, if the fiat dollar fails, the “supranational” currency that replaces it should be backed by gold.  Insofar as that’s true, gold will once again be recognized as the #1 collateral in the world. 

•  Forces favoring fiat currencies launched a war against gold in A.D. 1933 when gold was removed from domestic circulation in the US.  The “tide” of that war favored fiat currencies for almost 70 years.  

That war between physical gold and fiat currencies continues.  But I’m reminded of Winston Churchill’s remark in A.D. 1942 when he realized that the war against the Nazis had finally begun to turn in favor of the Allies:

“Now this is not the end.  It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” 

The BIS and FDIC elevation of gold to a Tier-1 collateral will not cause the price of gold to instantly skyrocket.  Nevertheless, that proposed elevation signals that the initial war against gold has been lost by the forces of fiat currency. 

The tide against gold has “officially” turned.

PERFECT BALANCE by Herbalist Wendy Wilson

Is it possible to obtain a nearly perfect healthy balance? Perhaps it would be a whole lot easier if we didn’t have poisons, bad dietary habits, stress, and inherited weaknesses. Today the human body has a heavy burden. If we had our blood, urine and hair analyzed, we would be shocked at just how hard our bodies work to protect us from dieing. Do most of us hit the mark when it comes to a healthy balance or are we so far off that it is time to shop for a burial plot? Let’s find out what the national average is and if you fall above or below the bar.  

The National Report on Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition was released by the CDC. This is the second published report of its kind by government agencies. Contributing agencies in this report were the CDC’s Division of Laboratory Sciences in the National Center for Environmental Health. The purpose of the investigation was to get a national snap-shot of our health. They wanted to find out what nutrition we have and don’t have in our bodies. The data was collected by the CDC from 1999 to 2006 via their National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. So, how can they find out how healthy we are by asking participants a few questions? Well it wasn’t just questions; blood and urine samples were also taken from the participants.

What the CDC claims to have discovered about Americans comes from their analysis of the body fluids with 58 biochemical indicators or markers. This report was more comprehensive than their 2008 report because they tested twice the number of chemical markers. This just release report included for the first time iron levels and what constitutes a deficiency. It also included 24 healthy and unhealthy fatty acids. Their survey included deficiency rates for nutrients by age, gender and race. The highlights were folic acid, vitamin D, iodine, iron and fatty acids.
Folic Acid
The government took the credit for the folic acid and all the fortification added to packaged foods. They called fortified foods with folic acid “a sustained public health success.” How can then make such a claim? Their report states that prior to the synthetic vitamins added to breakfast cereal, dairy products and other processed foods in 1998, the folic acid deficiency among women of child bearing age was 12% and now it is 1%. What about the rest of the human race? Folic acid is up 50% overall.
Vitamin D
Deficiency in vitamin D showed up most significantly in the non-Hispanic blacks (31%). However, blacks had superior bone density and they are not sure why. Mexican-Americans had a 12% deficiency and whites a 3%.
This was one of the most disappointing nutritional groups for women between the ages of 20 to 39. More women than men have low iodine levels and more thyroid problems as a result. The CDC reported that iodine levels were barely above insufficiency. Young women had the lowest iodine levels than any other age group.
This was one of the newer nutrient markers included in the study and it showed lower than expected iron levels in Americans. The children were the most deficient group. Mexican-American children (1 to 5 years) made up 11% of the deficient grouping. Blacks were 16% of the sample and Mexican-American adult women of childbearing age accounted for 13% compared to the other ethnic groups.  

Fatty acids
The deficiency marker for the fatty acids had two categories; healthy and unhealthy fatty acids. There were the healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids and the unhealthy saturated fatty acids, which differed by race and will provide a baseline for future research.

“The food industry has just as much responsibility as the supplement market at ensuring health and well-being to its customers. Americans don’t get fat and diseased by gobbling fistfuls of supplements.”  Rebecca Wright, Editor of Nutraceutical World Magazine

According to the CDC, Americans on average are overfed and undernourished. However, overall Americans have good vitamin A and D and folate but fall short in the other nutrient areas.  Their lab results reported some of our nutrient intake we get from our foods and vitamin supplements. Based on the lab results and survey data, the CDC was able to ascertain which participants actually used supplements. They were also able to determine levels of nutrients as too low, too high or sufficient. Apparently, the individuals who did not show supplement use have more deficiency rates than expected. They reported that those who used supplements were healthier than those who did not. This single report debunks those who pooh, pooh the effectiveness of supplements as just giving us expensive urine. When the survey and lab work were assessed together, the participants that used supplements also tended to be more proactive with their health. They found that supplement users have higher percentages in the following categories; eating healthier diets (84% Vs non-supplement users 76%), visited their physicians more often (73% Vs non-supplement users 62%) and were more physically active (85% Vs non-supplement users 70%).

“Serious diseases that are linked to what we eat kill an estimated 3 out of 4 Americans each year. These diseases include; heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, some types of cancer and diabetes.” National Cancer Institute

I hope someone at the CDC sends a copy of this report over to the FDA because this scientific survey says that supplements are not useless or deadly. Of course supplements are not a panacea and alone cannot cure all disease but along with a healthy lifestyle they can increase your chances of staying disease-free. The National Cancer Institute has stated; “Serious diseases that are linked to what we eat kill an estimated 3 out of 4 Americans each year. These diseases include; heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, some types of cancer and diabetes.” If supplements did that you know the supplement market would cease to exist. Yet fast-food chains, junk food and soda manufacturers are still feeding millions of Americans. Are they too big to fail? Do people in Congress and the FDA own stock in these companies? The editor of Nutraceuticals Word Magazine, Rebecca Wright, said this, “The food industry has just as much responsibility as the supplement market at ensuring health and well-being to its customers. Americans don’t get fat and diseased by gobbling fistfuls of supplements.”

We use scales to measure weight, productivity, trends etc. If anything, the CDC survey measured the differences between diet alone and diet plus supplements. The scales tilt in favor of supplements because they are effective at filling in the nutrient gaps and helping us function with more vitality. Remember, health begins on the cellular level and nutrition is the building blocks for cell health. Without sound nutrition your cells will literally fall apart. So, scale back or eliminate the unhealthy processed and fast foods and you will live longer, which means you achieve a more perfect balance.

There is more information at our finger tips then ever before. Are you smarter and healthier for it? You actually decide that by acting or not acting on the information you obtain. We have to work at staying healthy and the more toxins which we’re exposed to, the more persistent we must be at removing those toxins because they rob our body of nutrition and function. These days, healthy living means routine organ cleansing to remove the toxins, which burden the body and using quality supplements. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive to execute these health-protective measures. The folks at Apothecary Herbs provide organ cleansing kits and super nutrition supplements (Body Foundation Food Mix with folic acid, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and plant protein) as well as immune boosting herb liquids that work fast. Don’t forget the real heart healthy salt (Celtic Sea salt) with natural iodine for the thyroid or if you need more natural iodine see the Black Walnut tincture. You’ve got the tools and information – now implement it and be above the bar when it comes to finding that perfect balance.

Do you know what is in vaccines? Do you know the risks you take when agreeing to be vaccinated? Find out what medicine already knows but won't tell you.

The biggest lie that has ever been told in the world of mediSIN is that vaccines have been instrumental in decreasing infectious diseases.  When common sense is applied to the concept of injecting a dangerous organism directly into the bloodstream as a way to “protect” the recipient from becoming infected, the self evident fraud in the claim that vaccines provide “protection” is obvious.  The best hard question to ask any vaccinator trying to cajole you into allowing this insane practice be done to you, your child or your pet is:  “how is injecting organisms into the bloodstream a better stimulus for the immune system than being coughed and sneezed on by an infected person”? Especially when we were actually taught in medical school that there is an antibody called secretory IgA found in the saliva and secretions of the respiratory mucosa which is critical in the normal immune response that occurs in natural immunity which leads to the ability of the organism to be eliminated from the body, as well as recognition of the organism in subsequent exposures.

In fact, due to the inclusion of adjuvants in vaccines (which are there to boost the production of antibodies by the B cells in the “humoral” immune system), the proper balance of the humoral pole of the immune system with the cellular pole (which includes cytotoxic T cells whose job is to destroy organisms that have been coated with antibodies) is corrupted.  Since the humoral and cellular poles of the immune system have a reciprocal relationship (i.e., when one is stimulated, the other is suppressed), the adjuvants cause a corruption in the immune system which results in a hyperstimulated antibody response and subsequent suppressed cellular response.  If organisms are covered in antibody in the face of a suppressed T cell response, this results in the formation of antigen-antibody complexes which can clog up small arteries and cause mini-strokes in an organ. Additionally, cancer cells grow and become tumors as the cell mediated pole of the immune system cannot clear them. The corruption of the immune system is explained in much greater detail in my paper “Inoculations: the True Weapons of Mass Destruction” on  It was originally published in 2004, and was last updated in 2008.  At this point, I have so much evidence that vaccine induced diseases are the biggest epidemic the world has ever known that I will have to expand it into a book.  Note that I have had a $10,000 reward posted on for many years for any vaccine promoter to refute any of my information…to date there have been NO TAKERS.

The most disturbing conclusion I have reached after 15 years of researching vaccines is that the creation of vaccine induced diseases (which include all auto-immune diseases, non-traumatic seizures, cancer and genetic damage, in people and in pets) is NOT an “un-intended consequence” of an insane practice started by well-meaning physicians and scientists.  It has become self evident that creation of disease is the goal of the medical mafia, which has been totally controlled by big pharma since the early 1900’s.  (In fact, the best history of this takeover of medicine by big pharma, in my opinion, can be learned by reading the book “The Medical Mafia” by Canadian physician Guylaine Lanctot, MD).  The following are a sampling of what I have found in various publications which leave no other conclusion other than that the powers that be know EXACTLY what they are doing with vaccines; i.e., creating disease.

As stated in “Harrison’s Principle of Internal Medicine”, 6th edition, p. 943:  “Rarely is prevention of infection per se considered to be an important goal of vaccination.  In fact, asymptomatic infection after vaccination can serve to enhance and prolong the immune response”.  (Note that the infection is asymptomatic because the immune system has been corrupted and the infection cannot be pushed out of the body, and the “prolonged immune response” is the overproduction of antibodies which can form antigen-antibody complexes as noted above, as well as attack any tissue or organ in the body, leading to the epidemic of autoimmune disease we see today.) It is further stated that “Many viruses persist in host tissues for months or years without causing overt disease.  A flare-up of these latent infections may be induced by trauma, intercurrent disease, decline in antibody titers, or unknown stimuli” (so vaccines cause CHRONIC INFECTION).

In August of 2000 I was invited to give a talk at a large conference held by the National Medical Association.  Most of the conference was given by allopathic doctors; I was part of a small group of “integrative” practitioners.  The CDC had a large booth there with all their vaccine propaganda.  I came across a document entitled “Vaccine Information Statements; What You Need to Know” published on May 4, 2000.  Part 4 of this document is entitled “The Law”, and gives actual portions of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act that apply to reporting adverse effects of vaccines.  Under 42 Section 300aa-25 (b) (2), it states that “A report under paragraph (1) respecting a vaccine shall include the time periods after the administration of such vaccine within which VACCINE RELATED ILLNESSES, DISABILITIES, INJURIES, OR DEATHS OCCUR”.  I subsequently attempted to get a list of said vaccine related illnesses, disabilities and injuries from the CDC; NO ANSWER was ever given.

Also, if you go to, you will find the legal definition of weapons of mass destruction, which includes “any weapon, device or method that is designed or has the capability to cause death or serious injury through the release, dissemination or impact of…a disease organism”.  I found this after I had written my paper “Inoculations the True Weapons of Mass Destruction”; little did I know at that time I would subsequently find the legal definition of WMD proving this to be true. 

We are also hearing of more and more cases of outbreaks of whooping cough and measles in communities all over the country, where the majority of the children were vaccinated.  The plausible denialibility for the obvious cause of these outbreaks (i.e., that the children were inoculated with the disease) which the CDC came up with was an alleged survey done which found that the majority of pediatricians did not properly store the vaccines, thus these vaccines were “ineffective”.  If this is true, it in itself is a reason not to allow your children to be vaccinated…how can there not have been ongoing inspections of vaccine storage until this alleged survey?  However, there is no question in my mind that this excuse was created to address the increasing evidence that more and more vaccinated children are coming down with these diseases.  Should an unvaccinated child be exposed to these organisms, they will develop lifelong immunity.  (Not to mention that the children can be given colloidal silver to kill off the organisms, resulting in a very mild form of the disease; there is no bacteria or virus exposed to colloidal silver which the silver did not eliminate).  This is why there is so much disinformation put out by the medical mafia and big pharma about colloidal silver in an attempt to dissuade people from using it instead of vaccines, antibiotics or antivirals.  Of course, this is not to be construed as medical advise; I am merely telling you what I would do if I were you, after much research on these subjects. 

I strongly advise that you go to the “pet” tab on
and read the article “Science of Vaccine Damage” which was sent to me a few years ago.  This amazing article has references to 19 scientific studies published by non-pharma funded veterinarians which conclude what I have been saying for 15 years; that “vaccines are the stealth bomb of the medical world”.  Please spread the word…

Sugar – “The White Death”
by Ty Bollinger

Sugar is NOT your friend. It may “feel like” your friend when it comforts you (due to the beta-endorphin rush in your brain), but sugar is actually your enemy. Truth be told, regular consumption of sugary foods is one of the worst things that you can do to your health. Modern scientific research has shown us, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that sugar in your food (in all its myriad of forms) is taking a devastating toll on your health.

Just take a look at the sugar consumption trends of the past 300 years:

  • In 1700, the average person consumed about 4 pounds of sugar per year.
  • In 1800, the average person consumed about 18 pounds of sugar per year.
  • In 1900, individual consumption had risen to 90 pounds of sugar per year.
  • In 2012, more than 50% of all Americans consume 1/2 pound of sugar PER DAY—translating to a whopping 180 pounds of sugar per year!

In 1890, only 3 people out of 100,000 had diabetes. In 2012, diabetes strikes almost 8,000 out of every 100,000 people!

The “sugar rush” has really been targeted at children. American children are consuming about TEN TIMES as much sugar as they were in 1900, especially in the form of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is the average American’s largest source of calories! Highly addictive HFCS contains fructose and glucose, but they are NOT bound together (as they are in table sugar) so your body doesn’t need to break it down. Therefore, the fructose is absorbed immediately, going straight to your liver, which turns it into FAT (VLDL and triglycerides).

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola , “Fructose also tricks the body into gaining weight by fooling your metabolism (it turns off the appetite-control system. Fructose does not appropriately stimulate insulin, which in turn does not suppress ghrelin (the “hunger hormone”) and doesn’t stimulate leptin (the “satiety hormone”), which together result in your eating more and developing insulin resistance.”

But just because you avoid HFCS doesn’t mean that you’re in the clear. Excess intake of ALL processed sugars results in compromised immune function (decreasing the white blood cells’ ability to destroy bacteria), obesity, and diabetes. Remember, sugar is cancer’s favorite food!  And since half of the white sugar in the USA comes from sugar beets, you should remember that most beets are now genetically modified.  Yet another reason to stay away from the “White Death” isn’t it?

I personally recommend that you avoid white sugar, brown sugar, agave, and all artificial sweeteners.  If you have a sweet tooth, it’s best to stick with stevia, xylitol, raw honey/maple syrup, molasses, and coconut sugar.  The bottom line: If you want to be healthy, you MUST take control of your sugar intake so that it doesn’t take control over you.

It is easy to become confused by the various sugars and sweeteners, so here is a basic overview:

  • Saccharide = sugar
  • Glucose (aka “dextrose” or “grape sugar”), galactose (“milk sugar”), and fructose (“fruit sugar”) are all “monosaccharides” (i.e. single sugar molecules), known as “simple sugars.” The primary difference between them is how your body metabolizes them.
  • Glucose is the form of energy you were designed to run on. Every cell in your body uses glucose for energy.
  • High amounts of fructose are very damaging to the body, since if fructose isn’t burned immediately for energy, it travels directly to the liver, where it is converted to triglycerides (fats).   Excess triglycerides increase insulin resistance (and insulin production), thus contributing to diabetes in a “back door” fashion.
  • The simple sugars can combine to form more complex sugars, like sucrose (“table sugar”) which is a “disaccharide” comprised of 50% glucose and 50% fructose.
  • “Refined” white sugar (pure sucrose) is washed with a syrup solution, then with hot water, clarified (usually chemically) to remove impurities, decolorized, concentrated, evaporated, re-boiled until crystals form, centrifuged again to separate, then dried. By this point, any remnants of “natural goodness” and “nutritional value” have completely disappeared! Quite frankly, white sugar should be considered to be an “industrial product” rather than a “food.”
  • “Brown sugar” is just white sugar mixed with molasses.
  • “Raw” sugar is not really raw – it has been cooked, and most of the minerals and vitamins are gone. But it’s probably a little better than refined white sugar because it has a little of the molasses remaining.
  • Aspartame is a neurotoxic rat poison … need I say more?
  • Splenda (sucralose) is NOT a sugar, despite its deceptive marketing slogan, “made from sugar.” It’s a chlorinated artificial sweetener in line with aspartame, though not quite as harmful.
  • Honey is approximately 50% fructose, but in natural (raw) form contains many health benefits.
  • Stevia is an extremely sweet herb derived from the leaf of the South American stevia plant, which is completely safe (in its natural form).
  • Agave nectar is made from the agave plant, which is a cactus. Sound natural, right? Like maple syrup from a tree, or honey from a beehive. Only it isn’t. Agave is HIGHLY processed, and the end product does not even remotely resemble the original agave plant.  And agave is approximately 80% fructose (much higher than honey and maple syrup).
  • HFCS is 55% fructose and 45% glucose.
  • Rapadura is the pure juice extracted from the sugar cane (using a press), which is then evaporated over low heats, whilst being stirred with paddles, then seive ground to produce a grainy sugar. It has not been cooked at high heats, and spun to change it into crystals, and the molasses has not been separated from the sugar.  “Sucanat” is the USA trade name for Rapadura.
  • Coconut sugar is made from the sweet watery sap that drips from the cut flower buds of fresh coconuts. It has a low glycemic index (GI) and is rich in amino acids. It is typically less than 10% fructose, with sucrose being the primary component.
  • Xylitol is a sweetener known as a “sugar alcohol” (or polyol). Sugar alcohols are neither sugars nor alcohols – they are carbohydrates (with structures that happen to resemble sugar and alcohol). Xylitol is extracted from birch cellulose. Unlike sugar, Xylitol is slowly absorbed, does not cause a rapid blood sugar increase, and does not require an immediate insulin response from the body to be metabolized. And because Xylitol is anti-bacterial, many studies have shown that it actually helps prevent dental cavities, ear infections, and some evidence suggests that it helps prevent gum disease.

Chiropractic care in pregnancy is essential to your pre-natal care. Many pregnant women experience back pain, among many other changes. This pain is caused by the rapid growth of the baby,combined with pre-existing unnoticed imbalances in your spine and nervous system. The growth of the baby,as well as laxity of the ligaments,causes extra stress to the pelvis and low back, leading to difficulty performing a normal daily routine.

Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy increases the body's ability to adapt to the changes as the baby develops. It can relieve the pressure in the pelvis and low back, allowing ease and comfort throughout the pregnancy. As your body changes, it is not only important that your body is able to adapt,but what about the baby? As the baby grows, your uterus enlarges to accommodate the rapid growth. In a stable or balanced pelvis, the ligaments connected to the uterus are able to create a supportive suspension for the uterus.
In the situation of an imbalanced pelvis, these ligaments pull the uterus,causing constraint. This situation limits the available space for the developing baby and could cause the baby to turn breech. Any compromised position for the baby throughout pregnancy will affect optimal development. Constrained as birth approaches, the baby is prevented from getting into the best possible position for birth. Improper positioning of the baby during birth will slow down labor and add pain and trauma to both the mother and baby.

Many women have been told that their babies were "too big" or labor "just slowed down" when it was really the baby's presentation interfering with the normal process and progression. Chiropractors work specifically with your pelvis, alone with the rest of the spine, throughout pregnancy to restore a state of balance, health and an environment for an easier, safer delivery.

This pregnancy, offer yourself the best! Learn more about the many benefits chiropractic offers in your prenatal care. Give you and your baby the opportunity for a more comfortable pregnancy and a safer, easier birth!
