EDITOR'S NOTE: RE: VACCINES - Just because a court case rules against plaintiffs does not mean vaccines are safe. The truth is, vaccines give the recipients a slight case of the illness, with an anticipation that this will prevent a bigger case of the disease. They also have sufficient amounts of mercury in these shots, and mercury is a deadly poison.

For decades, the AMA endorsed medical profession have been pushing pharmaceutical drugs, when facts and research indicate that diet and natural herbs work better in many cases. Homeopathy studies have been repressed by these same interests since the 19th. Century, when homeopathic remedies have been known to work better than pharmaceutical drugs for ages, in countless cases.

Realize that the industries funding this legal defense have done this for ages, supporting their expensive lifestyles while huge numbers of malpractice suits are shut down, costing families entire life inheritances and sometimes losing everything. At best, this court case is "inconclusive", simply meaning none of the affected families can collect, when the truth is shut down by slick lawyers.

***Ask Obama to hold Tom Vilsack accountable as USDA Chief***

EDITOR'S NOTE: While vaccinations are mandated in school programs, most people do not know that they actually spread illness, by injecting small amounts of disease with the idea that this will make users immune to more severe cases.

A court ruling does not change the facts.
