Ms Stein has sent this in support of Martin Weatheral’s call for  Health Canada to be investigated

The letter asking that Health Canada must be investigated is not only dead on – it is long overdue. There is no greater threat to the health of Canadians than the ignorant arrogance that is pervasive in Health Canada, since they are the ones who set the regulatory standards. For some time now, I have renamed this corrupt government agency as the “Health Prohibition Branch”.

It is obvious that Government polices are major generators of illness. Their refusal to acknowledge well researched science or to listen to the concerns of whistle-blowers with impeccable professional credential is not only willful negligence – it is criminal in the extreme. The refusal of Health Canada to protect Canadian citizens is so pronounced that one has to wonder whether health and survival even enter into their considerations as they sacrifice the health of Canadians at the altar of the “Corporate Economy”, that they unashamedly admit is their primary priority.

We’ve all watched various footballs being tossed back and forth, ad infinitum, regarding the escalating cost of “sickness-care” and “health-care”, and they are most intriguing.
In these discussions, one of the biggest and most important issues is consistently omitted, namely the involvement of government and government agencies and their many departments, whose policies are at the root of actively generating illness and/or preventing health. The problems are not being solved, and will never be solved, because to do so would severely affect the “economy” of Corporations whose operations are highly toxic and health-destructive.
There is a great deal of hot air and frustrating rhetoric about “preventive health” but the “actions of government” point in the diametrically opposite direction. Government seems to be engaged in an intensive program of “Health Prohibition”.

It is interesting to observe the metamorphism in just one agency over the past 40 years. HPB started legitimately as the “Health Protection Branch” – but then corporate political/economic pressures morphed it into a “Health Prevention Branch”, and in recent years has been further morphed it into a “Health Prohibition Branch”. It was misnamed “Health Canada”, because in reality, it operates more as “Sickness-Protection and Health-Prohibition Canada”.

First of all, let us take note of the reality that the Government regards Big Pharma as its “primary client”, and not the health of Canadian citizens. Both have vested interests, but they are diametrically opposite – corporations try to maximize the “economic potential” of “sickness management”, whereas citizens have a vested interest in staying healthy and staying out of the “sickness merry-go-round”. Government seems to be incapable of serving these TWO Masters, so one is being serviced and the other controlled. The actions of Health Canada in recent years clearly indicate which fork in the road they have chosen. Clearly Big Pharma guards the gates and dictates health and health-care policies, a monumental conflict of interest since this “sickness industry” makes far more money on sick people than on healthy people. Health is the last thing that Big Pharma wants.

One way to solve the exponential explosion in the “Sickness-Care” Budget is for Government to stop formulating policies that cause illness.
Let’s look at just a few of these government policy “illness generators”:

• Government refuses to regulate and/or remove toxic products from the marketplace, even though they are known to be metabolic disruptors and generators of chronic, life-long, debilitating, degenerative illness.

• Aspartame is one on the top of the list, causing very serious debilitating neurological and metabolic illness; it’s followed by MSG, chemical food additives, pesticides, herbicides, etc. The list is long, but it shouldn’t be, if government were doing its job of “health protection”. All are government protected Toxics! – While people get sicker!

• Government promotes and protects Genetically Engineered food crops – although it has now been unequivocally established that GMOs constitute a toxic food supply that is guaranteed to generate illness. That applies equally to man and animals. Allergies , diabetes, cancer, gastrointestinal problems, reproductive problems , sterility, lower sperm count, lower IQ, etc. follow in its tracks and have risen exponentially since the introduction of GMO corn, soy and canola in most processed foods. The Government makes sure that citizens can’t avoid these toxic foods by not allowing them to be identified with appropriate labeling. Citizens are not supposed to have “choice” according to Government and Monsanto.

• Government – through Agriculture Canada, which does the bidding of Monsanto – promotes the expansion of genetically engineered crops that produce toxic foods containing a “perpetual insecticide factory in every cell”; under their watchful eye, agricultural soils are laced, annually, with herbicides, especially Round-up, now known to cause cancer, birth defects, reproductive problems, liver, metabolic degeneration, and more. Genetic Engineering of the biosphere threatens all plant and animal life, totally destroys biodiversity, and is an extremely destructive force threatening the very survival of Nature and Life. The environment and the entire ecology is being targeted in one of the most irresponsible – and irreversible – mass experiments ever undertaken.

• Government promotes Food Irradiation even though independent scientific research proved forty years ago that the end product is not only nutritionally inferior, but is metabolically disruptive, causes genetic damage, and is both carcinogenic and teratogenic.

• Government promotes the poisoning of municipal water systems with industrial waste Fluoride – when it has been know for a century that Fluoride is very toxic, disrupts metabolism, causes cancer and destroys health.

• Government mandates an absolutely insane vaccine schedule for infants (Birth to 2 years, when neither the neurological nor the immune systems are mature and fully developed)) that leaves in its wake a huge swath of neurologically, immunologically and metabolically damaged children – many ruined for life.

• Government permits ground water and aquifers to be poisoned – permanently – with extremely toxic chemicals now used in “fracking” (hydraulic fracturing) for natural gas extraction. Lakes and rivers are permitted to be poisoned whenever that is deemed “economically essential” for the “corporate economy”.

• Government promotes wireless technology, cell phones, cell towers, etc. knowing full well that the frequencies that are being used are very cell-disruptive and pose a major threat to health.

• Government permits the skies to be laced with toxic chemicals (Chemtrails) which cause serious respiratory problems – resulting in huge “sickness-care” expenditures. (The USA military has a one Billion dollar budget for this “secret” military operation – and Canada is fully integrated. Chemtrails are connected with HAARP and weather modification/manipulation as a warfare weapon.) For ten years, this massive covert experiment has constituted an attack on the health of the civilian population, the environment and the ecology. Simply denying its existence doesn’t negate the fact that we can all see the trails criss-crossing the sky, day after day.

To crown this insanity, Government – as one of the biggest generators of “health problems” by refusing to remove, and often protecting, health-destructive toxins – has, with profound arrogance and ignorance, decided that it is best qualified to determine and dictate the practice of medicine, deciding which therapeutics are to be permitted and which are to be eliminated and outlawed, thereby posing a distinct threat to health through what it mandates and by what it renders ‘unavailable’. The drugs of Big Pharma, which are the cornerstone of the allopathic medical paradigm, are the third largest cause of death in North America. At the same time, all of the therapeutics that are extremely effective and economical, proven to be so over decades, if not centuries, have been routinely attacked and restricted as soon as they pose a substantial threat to the profit potential and security of the “established medical paradigm” with Big Pharma at the center.

For three decades Government has been pursuing an intensive policy of restricting, and when at all possible, eliminating the products that are therapeutic, wholesome, healthy, effective, and cost-effective – precisely those nutritional products that people have been using for centuries to keep themselves healthy and out of the clutches of the Big Pharma’s “sickness industry”. (Apparently the ability of citizens to be independent, self-sufficient and medically autonomous is deemed to be “intolerable” from the perspective of the economy of Big Pharma”) Thus the healthiest foods, herbs and nutrients have been reclassified as “drugs” and are now being systematically regulated out of the open marketplace. At the same time, the most effective and economical natural therapeutic technologies that pose a major competitive threat to the Medical Establishment and Big Pharma’s medical monopoly are not only subjected to regulatory straight-jacketing, but non-compliance is militaristically policed by Swat Teams, guns drawn.

As long as Government remains a major cause of this exploding epidemic of illness and disease and at the same time obliterates the accessibility of inexpensive, effective, health-supportive, nutritional products that enable people to take responsibility for their own health maintenance, the problems will only escalate. Furthermore, as long as Government outlaws known and proven natural therapeutics, remediation and cures, and legalistically and physically attacks well-qualified “alternate” practitioners (many of them innovative geniuses), there is absolutely no possibility that the health care budget will do anything but continue to explode exponentially.

To sum up the problem of the exploding and unsustainable “sickness-care” budget, and to offer some solutions:

• Government must stop causing illness with counter-productive and even poisonous “treatments”.

• People must not be prevented or prohibited from taking responsibility for their own health by insane government regulations that restrict or outlaw the essential foods, herbs and nutritional products and therapeutics that are both effective and safe. Nor should any of these be placed under the umbrella or jurisdiction of Big Pharma, that has been determined to eradicate this huge competitive threat to its profit base for over a century. Government has absolutely no business regulating products or therapeutics simply because they are beneficial, when these are inherently safe. Their regulatory powers must be limited to removing that which is proven to be harmful and/or toxic. Thus it is the drugs and industrial synthetic chemicals, and not the nutrients, that need to be more stringently regulated.
• Government must get out of the “practice of medicine”, especially “mandated” medicinal policy – like vaccines”. The state must never be permitted to “own” and practice jurisdiction over a person’s body.

• We must stop supporting “negative, health-destructive monopoly industries” that prosper from maintaining, or even increasing and generating problems. Government has shown many times that it is prepared to sacrifice health and environment to the Curse of the Midas Touch when supporting the corporate economy. The cost is staggering and: devastating on every level. (In 1975 I wrote an editorial that dealt with these issues, titled “The Economic Noose” of illness generation via nutritional neglect.)

• We must permit real science to see the light of day and to be openly debated. We must stop using the courts to outlaw science that presents the unwanted truths. That is not where science should be adjudicated. Those policy-makers who have financial ties to the offending corporations have a very prejudicial perspective toward science, the inevitable result, more often than not, being prostituted science..

• We must stop spin-doctoring pseudo-science, and feeding it to the public in an endless stream of scientifically inaccurate disinformation through the corporate-owned mainstream media. In recent years much of what we believe to be “science” has become whatever corporate needs and wants dictate and determine it to be. It has become “Alice in Wonderland” science, where the Queen simply declared, “It is because I say it is!” It is “Science by Declaration”, a perverted science that the “corporate experts” proclaim and decree; a “politically-correct” science that has lost its authenticity.

• The entities that are causing the problems must never be put in charge of solving the problems: the conflicts of interest and the influence of vested financial stakeholders are too obvious and prevalent, leading to unprecedented corruption.

It is the mandate of Government to remove poisons and toxics from the marketplace – but unfortunately, that is what it has consistently refused to do. There is always the protection of some “corporate economy” that takes precedence over the essentials for survival and the health of citizens. As Mr. Harper once explained, ‘When the Economy is threatened, the environment and the ecology simply have to take a back seat” (paraphrased).
No other animal fouls its own nest and expects to survive. Indeed, “Man is the only species that engineers and finances its own destruction, and does so in the name of Economic Necessity.”
Is that the product of super-intelligence, or too much Fluoride addling the brain?”

It is not the mandate of a democratic government to practice medicine, nor to determine the medical paradigm and which therapeutics are permissible, nor to dictate and regulate people’s lives, putting them into a functional strait jacket with visits from Swat Teams for non-compliance – and then punish people for failing to take responsibility for themselves and their health.

Let’s cut out the hypocrisy and operate with just an ounce of Integrity, which is now almost totally absent in the area of “health care”, and will remain absent as long as the Government and Big Pharma remain Siamese-Twins that regard “health and people” as commodities to be milked, fleeced and exploited for the economy of monopolistic mega-corporations. The medical paradigm is now structured to transfer citizens’ money into the coffers of corporate monopolies, especially Big Pharma. Health itself has become a marginal, nominal consideration.

It is a fact that economical, non-toxic and effective therapies, remediation and cures for most diseases have been known for many decades, if not a century, but that these have been obliterated in a system that regulates science in courtrooms rather than through the evidence of performance. We are practicing a medical and health-care paradigm that is at least a century behind the proven research. Over and over again we have witnessed “Genius Attacked and Therapy Denied”.

John D. Rockefeller, the original Oil King and founder of Standard Oil, stated that the only truly unforgivable sin was to allow competition to survive. His policy was “Buy them out, or wipe them out”. It was his agenda that his “chemical industry” would become the foundation of “everything” – industry, medicine, agriculture, etc. In 1900 he gained control over American medicine, infiltrating and taking over control of the American Medical Association – marking the birth of Big Pharma’s control over medical policies. Since then we have witnessed an incessant war against nutrition and natural therapeutics by the Medical Mafia/Big Pharma Medical Establishment, that has a stranglehold on health-care (sickness-care) policies in North America. This hundred year war is now coming to a climax. Indeed, we find that real solutions have either been “bought out, or wiped out”.

It is time for a drastic change: a house-cleaning, a return to sanity, common sense and honest, open, truthful science. Regarding natural therapeutics, that which maintains health also remediates illness. They are one and the same. The wisdom of Hippocrates stated two millennia ago that “Your food shall be your medicine, and your medicine shall be your food”. An undeniable truth that Big Pharma has spent billions to bury.
We need a paradigm change that has the courage to tear out the destructive roots of self-interest and exploitation – and builds with a measure of sanity that returns “jurisdiction over one’s body and health” back to the individual, who has a vested interest in maintaining health, if only government policies and mandates and corporate economic vested interests would stop destroying it.
The health-care budget can easily be stabilized and maintained, but not as long as the Curse of the Midas Touch hovers over it. We know the Solutions. All that is necessary is the permission to implement them. For that to happen, the present Government’s policies and the Medical Hierarchical Establishment’s controls have to get out of the way.

Comment by CDSAPI – Citizens Demand Scientific, Academic and Political Integrity.
Presently, Integrity is conspicuously absent in all three areas.
“When we give government the power to make medical decisions for us,
we, in essence, accept that the state owns our bodies.” ~U.S.Representative Ron Paul, MD
“Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship…. To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the bastille of medical science.”
Benjamin Rush MD, Physician to George Washington, Signatory to the Declaration of Independence
