Let your kids get sick!

Granny Rant: We have crippled our children with legal drugs, making them chronically ill by attempting to avoid acute illness that is normal, natural, and even beneficial. Older teachers who have been in the classroom for several decades see the increasing numbers of children with diabetes, obesity, asthma, and autism. Younger teachers say it is just that more sick children are mainstreamed; that is just not so.

Kids are druggies these days. We are not talking cocaine, but 'respectable'

drugs like asthma medicines, central nervous system stimulants, and even antidepressants. (1) Savvy entrepreneurs have seen the opportunity to supply a need: "CampDoc" is a hot new business that pre-packages pills for children at summer camps. "With more than 1 in 4 children and adolescents in the U.S. taking prescription medications on a regular basis, and the number of medications being prescribed increasing every day, camps are devoting an excessive amount of time organizing, preparing and distributing medications every summer. Pre-packaged medications through are sent directly to camp in sealed packages, clearly labeled with the camper’s name and dispensing instructions."

Check out a typical packet: Prilosec, Glucophage, Glucotrol, and Zocor. A kid with indigestion? diabetes? high cholesterol? You would think this packet is for a senior citizen! A friend said that her 15 year old went on a school band field trip, and there "was a meeting regarding the medications that kids had to bring." Consider, too, that teachers are part of the 9 of 10 who are on scripted drugs. Do you, like me, give a silent, knowing "humff" when you see the proclamations on the school fences, "Drug Free Zone"?

Over-the-counter remedies are drugs, too, and are not counted in the official stats. Moms think they are doing Baby a favor by knocking out that fever. Not so. It is entirely possible that the OTC remedy for pain and fever will lead to a script for Prilosec, as non-steroidal inflammatory drugs increase indigestion. If Tylenol is used, the liver is depleted of glutathione and detox enzymes, so that subsequent exposure to things like adjuvants in vaccines, environmental assaults (new carpet, paint, perfume), or endogenous toxins in foods (nitrates in hot dogs, FD&C colors, preservatives) cannot be neutralized. Allergies appear, indigestion happens, behavior problems start, learning screeches to a halt. The parent then runs to Dr. WhiteCoat for a Magic Pill because the child must get back to daycare and the parent back to work. There's just no time to let the child convalesce on the couch with Bugs Bunny and homemade chicken noodle soup.

The inconveniences of acute disease are giving your child chronic HEALTH. Let's look at measles. This is a very mild virus that causes an itchy skin rash. Kids get over it quickly and without trauma, and they are all the better for it. Kids who have had measles have less allergies, including dust mite allergies. After measles, psoriasis has been cured. Seizure disorders have disappeared in two weeks after a bout of measles. (2)

Your kid is not a dog, but.....Dr. Will Falconer, an Austin vet who practices homeopathy, wrote recently about puppies who were allowed to have short (5 minutes) exposures to areas where distemper had been found in wild animals. Did they get sick? No! They were tested later and found to have antibodies to distemper, meaning that no vaccine was necessary because they had life-long immunity. Exposure alone, and not a full blown episodic event of disease, was sufficient to cause this immunity. (3)

Say no to drugs, all of them. Let your child's fever run its course. Let him play in the dirt or on the floor. Let him get chickenpox and measles. Let the puppy kiss him. Let him be a kid and explore his world. Let him live.

Gluten Intolerance is really GLYPHOSATE POISONING

What if...."gluten intolerance" is really "glyphosate poisoning"?

Gluten has been in wheat since it was first grown. Sure, there have always been folks who have problems digesting wheat or grains with gluten. Today, about 50% of the world have problems with gluten. (1) Something has changed.

That "something" is glyphosate.

Glyphosate has only been on this planet since Monsanto patented it as "Roundup" in 1973. This chemical herbicide goes by 32 or more tradenames and, now that the patent protection expired in 2000, is made by nine chemical companies -- most of whom, not coincidentally, are also in the drug business. Over 200 million pounds of it is used all over the world every year. That's 100,000 tons! Roundup brings in half of Monsanto's yearly profits. Like vaccines, each manufacturer can add its own extra ingredients called adjuvants or surfactants. Some data suggests that the adjuvants are even more toxic than the glyphosate. (2)

The original use of glyphosate was to prevent weeds. Somewhere along the way, it was discovered that a pre-harvest spraying of glyphosate directly onto the crops made for an easier harvest, as it desiccates the material. WHEAT and CANE SUGAR are the two foods most often treated in this manner. What foods have wheat and sugar? Take a walk down the cereal aisle, the one with the pretty boxes that beckon to your children. See the cookies, crackers, breads, cakes -- all those things that have gluten -- as well as a double dose of glyphosate.


And I really, really mean "nice." Etymology: Middle English, foolish, wanton, from Old French, from Latin nescius ignorant, from nescire not to know.

Monsanto applied for the patent on glyphosate with full knowledge that it worked by blocking the shikimate pathway of plants and certain bacteria. Therefore, since people are not plants or bacteria, glyphosate must be safe, they told the FDA.

What Monsanto did not disclose is that the bacteria in a human gut all have shikimate pathways. This is huge. Without gut bacteria, people become very ill and malnourished, develop antibodies to their own organs, mentally depressed, full of yeast and other pathogenic bacteria, and mineral deficient. Nerve transmission fails and energy is gone. The mind cannot focus. Children get labeled at school as having behavior problems. Adults think they are crazy and run to the Prozac. This could only have happened if the scientists at Monsanto and FDA are malevolent and the worst sort of facinorous psychopaths. They are not nice guys, not ignorant of their deeds; let us call them what they are: Murderers.

I submit: You do not have gluten intolerance; that is a symptom. You have been poisoned by glyphosate, therefore you have GLYPHOSATE POISONING. The first step to healing is calling something what it is. Using euphemisms and hiding wickedness behind medicalese and nebulous diagnoses does no one any good. The guilty go free and the victims are denied proper treatment and timely justice.

(1) Dr. Ford, a pediatrician in Christchurch, New Zealand and author of The Gluten Syndrome, says he believes the percentage of people who are gluten-sensitive actually could be between 30% and 50%. Source:

(2) "...with respect to glyphosate formulations, experimental studies suggest that the toxicity of the surfactant, polyoxyethyleneamine (POEA), is greater than the toxicity of glyphosate alone and commercial formulations alone."
