WHO urges people to reveal depression, goal is to pump up big pharma medication sales

By Elizabeth Renter

On World Mental Health Day (October 10), the World Health Organization (WHO) let it be known that more than 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. But, they say, a stigma is still attached to the condition, leading people to keep their struggles quiet rather than reaching out for help. The WHO says the stigma must be dropped so that depressed individuals can have access to treatment, including therapy and Big Pharma medications.

Makeup and plastics may be causing early menopause

By Makini Brice
Medical Daily

Researchers warn that chemicals in cosmetics, plastics, and household cleaners could be causing women to go through menopause early.

Researchers from the Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri looked at data from 5,708 women who had been participants in the United States National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Women who had been exposed to high amounts of certain chemicals were likely to undergo menopause as much as two years early - a change from 51 years old, the average age for the onset of menopause in the United States, to 49 years old.

CAT scanner at SA Public hospital not fixed due to unpaid bills

A medical supply company is refusing to fix a Leratong hospital CAT scanner which has been broken for six weeks because it is owned money by the health department, the DA claimed on Sunday.

This was putting patients' lives at risk, said Democratic Alliance Gauteng health spokesman Jack Bloom.

He said emergency patients at Leratong had to wait hours to be taken to another hospital for scans.

"Supply company TecMed refuses to replace the tube in the CAT scanner as the Gauteng Health Department owes them money," said Bloom.

Department spokesman Simon Zwane said Leratong hospital management was interacting with TecMed to get the machine fixed.

He said there had been a dispute with TecMed about how much it had been paid for its services and how much it was still owed by the department.

"Management is working on getting the machine fixed."

Regarding an accusation by Bloom that operations at Helen Joseph hospital had to be cancelled on Thursday when it ran out of a special paper used when sterilising surgical instruments, Zwane said the hospital received more paper on Friday.

"Another batch of the paper will be delivered this coming week," he said.

Virologists: Armageddon Virus could kill Mankind in 5 years

Like something from the pages of a science fiction thriller, scientists are warning that an unstoppable "Armageddon Virus" could wipe out Mankind. What's worse, their horrific scenario could play out not in 100 years, or even fifty, but in less than five years.

Shocking new trend

Virologists have identified a shocking new trend: deadly diseases have learned to mutate and jump species. Viruses that once were contained strictly to animals like birds, rats, pigs and bats are now transforming themselves to invade—and kill—the human body.

Investigations into new virus mutations and breakouts of fatal diseases have led researchers to the startling conclusion that viruses are adapting and crossing species faster than anyone expected.

Newly emerging viruses are beginning to spread so quickly that the medical protocols in place may soon become archaic.


Decayed Meat Treated With Carbon Monoxide To Make It Look Fresh

This is a regular standard practice in South Africa, and particularly at some of the most "respected, trusted and loved yuppy stores around". When you see that "pink" meat think again.

Most meat eaters may be unaware that more than 70% of all beef and chicken in the United States, Canada and other countries is being treated with poisonous carbon monoxide gas. It can make seriously decayed meat look fresh for weeks. The meat industry continues to allow this toxic gas injection into many of the meat products people consume on a daily basis. The question is, how many people have become ill by this chemically altered meat that is being sold to families all over the world?
Carbon monoxide (often referred to as CO) is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas, one measly oxygen molecule away from the carbon dioxide we all exhale. But that one molecule makes a big difference in that it does very, very bad things to the human body at very, very low concentrations.

Why Are Black Women Three Times More Likely to Have an Abortion?

by Susan W. Enouen, P.E. | Washington, DC | | 10/21/12

Why are Black women over 3 times more likely to obtain an abortion than White women? Even though African Americans are only 12.6% of the population, they received 30% of the 1.2 million abortions in 2008 (latest available statistics), killing 360,000 Black babies at a rate of nearly 1,000 per day.

More than 16 million African American unborn babies have died from legalized abortion, which suggests that the current Black population of 39 million would have been more than a third larger without abortion. This scourge is the leading cause of death for African Americans, more than all other causes combined, including AIDS, violent crimes, accidents, cancer and heart disease. African Americans have been disproportionately hurt by abortion because they have been targeted from the beginning. This is truly a case of Black genocide, and Planned Parenthood is one of the major players in this tragedy.

Life Issues Institute’s recent analysis of 2010 Census Bureau data shows that Planned Parenthood continues to strategically place the majority of their surgical abortion facilities in locations that target Black Americans for abortion. This analysis shows that 62% of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are within walking distance (2 miles) of relatively high African American populations. In 2005, Life Issues Institute was the first to use Census 2000 data to document Planned Parenthood’s placement near minority neighborhoods; this updated research uses the newest census data to thoroughly examine the neighborhoods around their abortion facilities.

In this study, the percentage of African Americans was calculated for every census tract within walking distance of the 165 Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities operating in 2010. Census tracts are subdivisions designed to delineate areas whose populations are fairly homogeneous in certain ways, such as income level or housing stock.


7 Billion People: What Population Control Advocates Don’t Say

by Carol Soelberg | Washington, DC | | 10/21/11

International population advocates and their allies in the media have decided that October 31, 2011 is the day that the world’s population will reach 7 billion.  How convenient for them; they get to play off the day dedicated to spooky tales with a spooky tale of their own.

Over the weekend, some version of the Associated Press (AP) article “World Population Nearing 7 Billion” ended up in most major newspapers.  Here’s the gist of the article:  Women and their families living in poverty, not enough food, water, or access to education – all because they have too many children.  The intended message?   The world is going to collapse under the weight of its burgeoning population unless something is done.

United Families International has been contacted by several individuals asking for a rebuttal to this claim.  So we decided to share some thoughts on the topic.

Boys Now Enter Puberty Younger, Study Suggests, but It’s Unclear Why

By Pam Belluck  Published: October 20, 2012

A large study released by the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that boys are entering puberty earlier now than several decades ago — or at least earlier than the time frame doctors have historically used as a benchmark.

The study, widely considered the most reliable attempt to measure puberty in American boys, estimates that boys are showing signs of puberty six months to two years earlier than was reported in previous research, which historically taught that 11 ½ was the general age puberty began in boys. But experts cautioned that because previous studies were smaller or used different approaches, it is difficult to say how much earlier boys might be developing.

The study echoes research on girls, which has now established a scientific consensus that they are showing breast development earlier than in the past.

PCBs and Infertility: A Subject the Elites Do Not Want You to Know About

According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), approximately 99 percent of the PCBs used by U.S. industry were produced by the Monsanto Chemical Company.

Have you ever noticed how rarely known endocrine disruptor polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are mentioned in the Western mainstream media?  Probably not a coincidence as that particular pollutant is what ZetaTalk has told us would eventually cause the extinction (or near extinction) of full-blood humans.
