Daily Propaganda - It just keeps on coming

Post Number:#1  Post by ofonorow » Fri Jul 21, 2017 6:08 am

If the FDA refuses to regulate supplement production, at least regulate their marketing
http://www.dailytexanonline.com/2017/07/20/if-the-fda-refuses-to-regulate-supplement-production-at-least-regulate-their-marketing

And this one is a "good" one...

What they have in common is that they are all completely useless. A study from the International Journal of Preventive Medicine showed that multivitamin supplements (MVM) are completely unnecessary for one’s health and stated that “...although in the long run MVMs may slightly increase the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases, in the short run they produce little harm or no harm, and thus negative consequences will not be discernible by individuals taking them.”

However, since the publication, one claim has drastically changed. Negative consequences in the short run have become discernible. More than 20,000 emergency room visits a year can be traced back to dietary supplements. Many of these visits include children taking adult supplements, likely due to confusing adult pills for their own pills. But these pills shouldn’t be in people’s homes in the first place.

Pseudoscience and irresponsible advertising keep unwitting customers hooked. For example, at the first sign of a sniffle and a sneeze, many people reach for their nearest Vitamin C supplement, sold by companies with snappy names like Emergen-C. But Vitamin C has never been proven to have curative effects on the common cold. In fact, far from preventing a cold, overdoses of Vitamin C can cause diarrhea and nausea. But the damage of their initial marketing had already been done, and Vitamin C has become a staple ineffective home remedy for the cold.

And today, the dribble continues - figuratively or literally..

Spike in calls to poison control centers over dietary supplements
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/spike-in-ca ... pplements/
Children can suffer serious health problems from accidentally ingesting dietary supplements.

New research offers a reminder that dietary supplements don't come without risks — and the problems they can cause appear to be on the rise.



Oh, that's why we need the FDA - to protect us against dietary supplements, I almost forgot.

The article mentions "death" once - in conjunction with yohimbe root - as a possibility, (shiver) so we learn there still hasn't been even one death in all these kids getting into their parent's vitamins!

Lets compare and contrast with prescription drugs... :-)

Still more... And note per https://vitaminccures.com/blog/index.php/2017/05/19/the-orchestrated-propaganda-campaign-to-kill-americans/ these are supposed NEWS articles... every day ... drip drip drip

6 vitamins and supplements you're wasting your money on
https://tribune.com.pk/story/1466322/6-vitamins-supplements-youre-wasting-money/

My post to their blog - for the record - since I don't know how long it will last :D

This is a good article - if you work for a large drug company and make money when people become chronically ill. Otherwise, the question has to be asked of the author and media source, why would you want to harm the health of your readers? Where is the balance, i.e. the contrast with prescription medications, which are one of the largest, if not the largest cause of death



And apparently (I don't see them on my news feed) there are news reports how the Internet is unfairly attacking statin drugs - possibly impairing people's health!. Oh no

The Vitamin Injection Craze: Is It Safe?

As with all elective treatments, it’s smart to remain cautious of vitamin shots and IV drips.


Love the words "Craze", "is it safe?"... Who doesn't want to be smart... The power behind this drone of stories continues to amaze me... where are similar daily articles about the statin drug "craze" or " Is [you name that drug] safe or effective?"

First thing I noticed about the author of this hit piece her name didn’t have a MD or PHD after it.
So after reading the article it became apparent they are a “FOODY!”
Most of the FOODY article’s I have read, seem to have one thing in common and that is the authors have a big problem with figuring out where excrement comes out of !
This one is no different, it appears they believe it should come out of their mouth! This article is a prime example of “Oral Defecation!”

This is from the CDC website about food borne illness in the US in 2011 which is the last year that all final analysis are recorded!
Note: This is a single year report!!

We estimate that 5.5 million (59%) food borne illnesses were caused by viruses, 3.6 million (39%) by bacteria, and 0.2 million (2%) by parasites.


https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/17/1/p1-1101_article

Doesn’t that make you think that Vitamins are more Dangerous then FOOD?????

How’s this for making things sound worst then they really are.

On the basis of 3667 cases identified from 2004 through 2013, we calculated an average of 23,005 (95% confidence interval [CI], 18,611 to 27,398) emergency department visits for adverse events associated with dietary supplements annually and further estimated that these visits would result in an average of 2154 (95% CI, 1342 to 2967) hospitalizations annually.


http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NE ... cleResults

Let’s see 3667 for 9 years or 407 a year, magically turns into 23005 or 2556 a year.
Using their math, that 9.3 million a year for food would be 58.4 Million people visiting the ER for a year for food illnesses.
So 58.4Million X 9 Years = 525.6MILLION people going to the ER for food illness over the same 9 year period!
SO 525,600,000 Vs. 23005 estimated???
So your about 22,850 times more likely to get sick from food then supplements!

“What’s in your Stomach!!!”

Some more reading!

Do you want Acrylamide, I mean fries with your burger?

And there is still more... For the "black man" by the "staff"..

Beware of Supplements.
https://thyblackman.com/2017/07/30/beware-of-supplements/

Two things. Readers, please don't forget the guerilla warfare tactic - respond to every one of these you see and compliment the media outlet on their support of Big Pharma and tell them you hope they are being well compensated for lying to their readers. But do it in a jovial way. :P .

Also, remember to share our facebook petition with your friends.. Have them sign. it is a very tiny snowball right now...

The spin machine never ends - everything about this NBC news "story" is to discourage people against taking vitamin C... un F&#CK!#% believable. There are people out there, with money to burn, who are willing to harm the public health in order to assure the sale of their own products. I'd love to see "Maggie Smith's" Swiss bank account, but I doubt that is a real name...

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/can-vitamin-c-prevent-leukemia-n795331
But there’s no evidence that doses beyond the recommended daily requirement of the vitamin help even more. In fact, third study out this week provides a cautionary note: male smokers who took vitamin B supplements actually raised their risk of lung cancer.

Like most recent studies on vitamins, the researchers say the take-home message is to get plenty of nutrients from food, not from supplements.

that is part of the battle we(pro-Pauling) face when trying to educate peons on why they need more vit C.
I'm not sure how to go about making the playing field level, and it causes me to not even try, yet I see peolpe and I know a few extra grams vitC(especially smokers) will HELP someone so much

Its a one sided battle, at least for now. We learn from the Positioning book on marketing (by Trout and Ries) that it is difficult to impossible to change minds. (A lot of advertising $$ is wasted trying to do this.) Linus Pauling's name is a threat, but otherwise it is wasted effort to try and tell people that what they believe is wrong. In our beginning, the people who came to us, came only after they had exhausted all other medical options, were in extreme pain, and their own doctors told them to search the Internet for something.

It has been said that science progresses "one funeral at a time."
