EDITOR'S NOTE: The previous article is mostly written from a "conventional" perspective, yet fails to share the holistic / natural health and healing perspective.

According to AcademyHealth, the Senate health care bill’s “language to restrict scientific freedom is unprecedented and likely unconstitutional.” - George Avery, PhD, MPA, is an assistant professor of public health in the Department of Health and Kinesiology and the Regenstrief Center for Health Care Engineering at Purdue University.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I have never been against Health Care Reform, if in fact it would support saving ours and other Nations $billions by allowing truthful and honest information or treatments. To really be effective, this "Reform Bill" should also allow people true "choice of health care practitioner" and fund disease prevention, proper nutrition education, as well as funded use of many proven holistic and natural remedies that are mostly restricted in this present version.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I find it "beyond coincidental" that within days of "The Lancet" retracting Dr. Wakefield's study linking autism to mercury contamination in vaccines, specifically the MMR [measles mumps ruebella] variety, that we now have an outbreak of mumps with "health officials" lining up to suggest even MORE doses of vaccine for this, when the children infected were already inoculated with MMR... Hm... Would you call this "conspiracy theory" or "conspiracy fact"?

My prediction: This will lead to "big boys" pushing even MORE widespread vaccination programs, leading to even more "contamination through inoculation". Just watch. You'll see.

EDITOR'S NOTE: After reading report after report about dangers associated with vaccine use, one can understand at times that it might just be easier treating disease naturally, if or when it ever happens, and take our chances, without the inoculations that sometimes give people a mild case of the disease, leaving a permanent scar, or sickened from the experience...?

EDITOR'S NOTE: There might be some truth to the studied link between autism and age, yet let's review how many vaccines [25-30?] are suggested for children these days. Although in denial about this, we DO have verifiable evidence many vaccines DO include mercury in their solutions, shown to cause autism.
