More about why Merck has agreed to pay $4.85 billion to settle claims in tens of thousands
of lawsuits.In about 96 journal publications, Ross and his colleagues discovered internal Merck documents and e-mail messages pertaining to clinical study reports and review articles, some of which were developed by the company's marketing department, not its scientific department. In others, there is little evidence that the authors recruited for the report made substantial contribution to the research itself.

Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ - Published in Federal Gov't Journal
It is not so unbelievable that Portland City Council wants to fluoridate our water.

Far too many people are failing to question whether vaccination actually works. In the case of Gardasil, despite the horrifying stories being recorded in VAERS (the Vaccine reaction database), people are still subjecting their daughters to this nightmare. The fact is: that there isn't real evidence that ANY vaccines work. In the case of Gardasil, one of the scientists who worked on it admitted that the vaccine doesn't actually go after the strain of HPV often found coexisting with cervical cancer. EXCUSE ME? We are vaccinating girls with something that doesn't actually attack the strain of HPV that they're supposed to be protected from? THEN WHY IS IT BEING PUSHED?

WiFi Radiation as Dangerous as Microwave Weapons, Warns Physicist
About 40 or so years ago the Russians were caught microwaving the U.S. Embassy in Moscow with low dose microwave radiation. The result was miscarriages, cancer, leukemia and other health problems acquired by U.S. Embassy personnel. Barry Trower, a microwave weapons specialist for British Military Intelligence, claims that Radiation from Wi Fi is virtually the same frequency at a higher dose and is no different from a microwave weapon. SO WHY DID THE PORTLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS JUST SPEND 200,000.00 DEFENDING A LAW SUIT SO THEY CAN CONTINUE TO MICROWAVE OUR KIDS WHEN A WIRED SYSTEM IS STILL IN PLACE??

American Academy of Environmental Medicine Recommends Smart Meter Removals
Portland was asleep when wireless meters were put on our houses. Do you know that the wiring in your house becomes an antenna and creates an RF environment inside your house? The PUC claims that the meters only emit radiation every 4 hours but I measured a pulse every 45 seconds. We now have to live with another huge wireless grid added to the cell phone towers and your neighbors' wi fi. How harmful is this technology? There is no shortage of independently funded scientists lining up with studies and papers that condemn this technology as a serious health threat and a threat to our privacy. All new appliances now have wireless emitters in them that communicate with our meters and tell everything we do and when we do it. They know when we are home and when we are out. Soon every thing will have a chip in it and we will be able to check the contents of our refrigerators with our cell phones. Good luck people. Wake up. Smart meters give off a higher pulse than the FCC limits. Do some homework

Health care spending in the United States is far higher than in any other country, with worse results than most countries — so high that spending by the U.S. government alone is higher than total spending in Canada. The extra money, extracted from people and from government, are massive subsidies for corporate profit, and gigantic payouts for executives and financiers.

"The goal of the new coalition is to engage all communities across Oregon in a conversation about what we can and should expect from our health care system. We think providing universal access, as almost all other industrialized nations do, is the only truly humane and cost-effective system available. We need a broad and diverse coalition of organizations to help us understand how to take that message to all the constituencies we need to reach."—Michael Moore OSPC president, delegate from Sisters of the Road.
