Counterrevolution: Evolving

*                                                                       

The best antidote to fascist Techno-feudalism is living naturally with rational technology!

*

Here’s real biology from medical doctor experts who care about health:

RNA viruses

Dr. Nancy Banks, author of AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire, from her 2015 interview with Sofia Smallstorm:

When a cell does not have enough electrons to function it begins to lose its ability to communicate with other parts of the cell –and this happens over time [not suddenly]…and means there is some toxicity or some deficiency that [isn’t] recognized… Cancer cells [for example] no longer receive the correct signals…  AIDS is defined as 29 different diseases –but AID [Acquired Immune Deficiency] is a malfunction of a certain kind of white cell… Even in virology they know that RNA viruses are not pathogenic… The theory of HIV is that the virus is in the CD4 [T-cells]…killing them… but the virus has not been found in the decreasing [T-] cells so clearly not what’s killing them. People with HIV/AIDS all have 30 to 60% reduced…glutathione… It’s a deficiency disease.

Sofia: [approx.. min.30] “So, let’s talk about AIDS as an energy deficiency disease… rather than being called Acquired Immune Deficiency, it should be called Acquired Energy Deficiency…”

Dr.Banks:  ”[Remember] that anti-oxidants provide energy, or provide electrons. Things that are oxidative take electrons. So glutathione has the sulf-hydryl group which is key to providing excess electrons in the cell. These excess electrons allow for all the normal functioning of the cell… normal cell division, normal use of the mitochondria…to allow one of the energy molecules, ATP, to develop… But the other important thing that happens in the mitochondria is that there are millions-per-second of…redox reactions [which] are simply reactions where an electron goes from one energy level to another energy level. When that happens, photons…create an electromagnetic wave and these waves are actually part of the energy of the cell, and part of the propagation of what allows the cell to keep itself together. So what happens if you…don’t have enough electrons to float that particular wave of energy in the cell…is you’re going to have…these reduced energy levels which do not allow the cell to function optimally… and that’s what’s going on with people said to have HIV.

…[Ebola in] Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea…just happens to break out where they just found [Aug.2013]..this huge cache of really expensive rocks [diamonds of 300+ karats]… They said Ebola was an RNA virus and the minute you hear [an epidemic] is RNA, you know immediately they’re not telling you the truth. Secondly, what is Ebola? –it’s a type of hemorrhagic fever, but there are many types…in tropical climates…and they’re trying to make people of afraid in temperate climates where tropical [diseases] don’t take hold, so that’s another nonsensical kind of thing, but we don’t really know what people are dying of… We know in this area the [World Health Organization] is testing all kinds of vaccines and drugs… but…the breakdown of the communities…and [civil] war [and dislocation] would cause diseases…and is no wonder…  March of 2014 was the first outbreak of Ebola and August 2013 [was] the announced diamond-mining discovery…

…”I do want to discuss…the RNA viruses. First there are two types of genetic material –DNA which is in our central genome and RNA…which has different [functions]. Now it turns out that it’s possible that the first type of genetic material on earth was RNA and…also almost 45% of the human genome is retro-transcribed…from RNA into DNA…and the term for it is ‘retrotransposons’ [or] DNA which is retro-transcribed from RNA… What it means is that this DNA, …what they used to call ‘junk DNA’…turns out that the more highly evolved a system is, the more so-called ‘junk DNA’ it has… But…this junk DNA actually has information –it’s messenger RNA and has some enzymatic functions… So as the cell functions and is communicating, it packages up these bits of genetic material [that] goes to different parts the cell or from cell to cell. If the cell is breaking down, then these bits of genetic material are transmitted out of the cell…   What they’ve been calling viruses, especially RNA viruses… most is not actually a virus but packaged pieces of normal genetic material…which are functioning the way they’re supposed to.

…”[In the past, from the 1920s], they believed that genes were stationary and didn’t move, transmitting information in one direction and [Barbara McClintock] said ‘no, genes are not stationary…they’re moving all the time’ …So you are evolving in terms of your environment because genes are always responding to…the environment…[and] move around almost like an alphabet making different words… We’re talking about a kind of consciousness at the energetic level… [It’s a dangerous idea] in a materialistic society because we don’t believe in consciousness at this level… The cell is completely quantum… so [knowledge of this] is going to break down the paradigm which is controlling science right now… [but] we’re moving into a whole new realm of how people think and behave.”

“Disease [is] not an entity, but a fluctuating condition of the patient’s body, a battle between the substance of disease and the natural self-healing tendency of the body.” –Hippocrates

*

The authors of The Body Electric, Dr. Robert O. Becker and Gary Seldon, chose Hippocrates’s words to introduce Part 3 of their book, ‘Our Hidden Healing Energy.’  The concept of Hippocrates “fluctuating condition of the ..body” was iterated by Antoine Bechamp as ‘pleomorphism’ (or polymorphism) in ‘bioterrain’, a contradiction to his peers promoting Germ Theory, or monomorphism, posited by Robert Koch and Louis Pasteur. I learned originally of Bechamp from Dr. Banks in 2008 when I began working out the many biological problems in poliomyelitis as an environmental disease of radiation and chemical exposure. The Body Electric elevates these ‘bioterrain’ ideas into scientific proof of cellular abilities to ‘dedifferentiate and redifferentiate’ into the perfectly-needed cell types for healing and regeneration under the right cell-level electromagnetic conditions.

 

“I felt as though the temple curtain had been drawn aside without warning and I, a goggle-eyed stranger somehow mistaken for an initiate, had been ushered into a sanctuary to witness the mystery of mysteries. I saw a phantasmagoria, a living tapestry of forms jeweled in minute detail. They danced together like guests at a rowdy wedding. They changed their shapes. Within themselves they juggled geometrical shards like the fragments in a kaleidoscope. They sent forth extensions of themselves like the flares of suns. Yet all their activity was obviously interrelated; each being’s actions were in step with its neighbors’. They were like bees swarming: They obviously recognized each other and were communicating avidly, but it was impossible to know what they were saying. They enacted a pageant whose beauty awed me…   As the lights came back on, the auditorium seemed dull and unreal. I’d been watching various kinds of ordinary cells going about their daily business, as seen through a microscope and recorded by the latest time-lapse movie techniques. The filmmaker frankly admitted that neither he nor anyone else knew just what the cells were doing, or how and why they were doing it… The film was shown at a workshop on fracture healing sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences in 1965.” –pp135-136, The Body Electric, [Robert O. Becker MD] Becker and Seldon, 1985

“In the mid-1960s, solid-state devices were only beginning to hit the market, and one of the PN junction’s most interesting properties hadn’t yet been exploited. When you run a current through [a PN junction] in forward bias, some of its energy gets turned into light and emitted from the surface. In other words, electricity makes it glow. Nowadays various kinds of these PN junctions, called light-emitting diodes (LEDs), are everywhere… but then they were laboratory curios. We found that bone was an LED. Like many such materials, it required an outside source of light before an electric current would make it release its own light, and the light it emitted was at an infrared frequency invisible to us, but the effect was consistent and undeniable.” –p131, ibid.

“Semiconduction, [a]third kind of current, was a laboratory curiosity in the 1930s. Halfway between conductors and insulators, the semiconductors are inefficient in the sense that they can carry only small currents, but they can conduct their currents readily over long distances…  [Albert] Szent-Gyorgyi pointed out that the molecular structure of many parts of the cell was regular enough to support semiconduction… he conjectured that protein molecules, each having a sort of slot or way station for mobile electrons, might be joined together in long chains so that electrons could flow in a semiconducting current over long distances without losing energy…and passed along as information… I  [Becker] theorized that this system…regulated growth, healing, and perhaps other basic processes.” –p93, ibid.

“Ultimately we must relate all we learn about regeneration to a general system of communication among cells, for regrowth is only a special case of the cooperative cohesion that’s the essence of multicellular life…  The control system we’re seeking unites all levels of organization, from the idiosyncratic yet regular outline of the whole organism to the precisely engineered traceries of its microstructure. The DNA-RNA apparatus isn’t the whole secret of life, but a sort of computer program by which the real secret, the control system, expresses its pattern in terms of living cells.” –p182. Ibid. “The pituitary hormone prolactin, the same substance that stimulates milk flow in nursing mothers, seems to sensitize cells to electric current. Then the signal causes nearby cells to dedifferentiate…apparently by changing the way cell membranes pass calcium ions… Steve Smith then confirmed the importance of calcium by preventing dedifferentiation with a calcium-blocking compound, and restarting it with another substance that enhanced passage of calcium ions… Widespread…work on calcium-binding proteins, such as calmodulin, has made it fairly certain that electrical control of calcium movement through cell membranes directs the give-and-take among these proteins, which in turn supervises the cell’s entire genetic and metabolic industry… [The] available evidence suggests that the current flows through the perineural cells [in the myelin] rather than the neurons themselves… These are several types of cells that completely surround every nerve cell, enclosing all the peripheral fibers in a sheath and composing 90 percent of the brain… Not all cells can respond, however…” –p183—“…[but] we reflect on the stakes: understanding regeneration well enough to restore it to ourselves. Certainly skin is electrically active. It’s piezoelectric and pyroelectric (turning heat into electricity) as well as a transporter of ions in wet animals. In the last two decades [1965-1985] nearly all tissues have been proven to produce or carry various kinds of electrical charge. Skin may play an as-yet-unknown role in regeneration… We can infer two things about the control [system]…in relation to the whole organism [;] the guidance can’t be purely local, but must come from a system that likewise pervades the whole body. Furthermore, there are no dedifferentiated cells left over when the work is done; there are just enough and no more… A large body of earlier work has shown that redifferentiation instructions are passed along a tissue arc whose main element is the circuit already established between nerves and epidermis” –p185—“The direction (polarity) plus the magnitude and force (amperage and voltage) of current could serve as a vector system… The electric field surrounding continuously charged cells…would provide a third coordinate…[and] a magnetic field…possibly adding a fourth dimension… Together these values might suffice to pinpoint any cell in the body. The electric and magnetic fields, varying as the current varies with the animal’s state of consciousness and health, could move charged molecules wherever they were needed for control of growth or other processes.” –p186—“As one who has performed too many amputations in his time, I find the prospect of being able to give a patient the real thing instead of a prosthesis tremendously exciting. There’s a good chance…such techniques could even rectify genetic birth defects. Since no one has yet achieved full regeneration…these dreams won’t come true overnight. They aren’t chimerical, however. The remaining problems could probably be solved…[by] basic research. Meanwhile, human capacities for repair of certain tissues are greater than most people realize, and there are already promising ways…” –p187, The Body Electric, 1985

The Disease Continuum

Of all the subject matter in this blog, the collective weight gathers on the topic of the Disease Continuum, so named as a manmade phenomenon of modern times. I’m challenging myself here to grasp its scope, locate its origins, describe its momentum and filter out a sensible narrative.

Like an exhausted competitor in an old-time Depression-era Dance Marathon, I’m leaning hard on my ‘partners’, relying on refreshment and support until the music stops. When it stops (if it stops), the grand prize will be survival –merely that– in a fiction of celebration designed for the desperate by the cruel. Thus, simply, stands my take on the practical medical ‘establishment’ paradigm.

In general terms, the mater materia of the Disease Continuum compares to the elements of the ancients [fire, water, earth, air]; four fundamental essences from which it’ s composed. By disease names they are influenza, polio, cancer and AIDS and together, they forge a Ring of Power in the kingdom of Public Health.

…”One Ring to rule them all and in the darkness bind them”

   Common to the four elements of the Continuum is the eugenical substrate on which they emerge in history; they are timely, political, and as inevitable as the science and industry that sustains them. It should interest us that they are characterized as viral and not the foreign biological intruders we suppose.
   “We have travelled a long way from the mysterious filtrable infective particle of..years ago… [W]e have even the evidence that..portions of certain..viruses can be dissociated and later recombined to form a reconstituted infective particle… Clearly discoveries of this sort are providing the basis for an understanding of the host-virus relationship… For virus multiplication is after all a special case of protein biosynthesis… We seem thus to have reached a point at which biochemical and biophysical studies of viruses have really come into their own and offer the greatest prospects of advance.”
–Sir Charles Harington, March 1956,
Ciba Foundation Symposium at the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR), Mill Hill London [ref. The Nature of Viruses, 1956, Little Brown & Co.]
*
From the same publication, Sweden’s polio researcher Sven Gard wrote, “The question of the kinetics of chemical virus inactivation has become a problem of more than academic interest after the occurrance in the USA of inoculation poliomyelitis in children vaccinated with formalin-treated virus… Salk (1956) has repeatedly stated that inactivation of polio virus by formaldehyde (F) runs the course of a first order reaction.  At the Third International Poliomyelitis Conference in Rome in 1954 I pointed out that the Swedish observations did not conform with this statement (Gard, 1955). On the contrary, we had found a systematic and consistently reproducible deviation...”  http://polioforever.wordpress.com/polio-vaccine/
   Work on polioviruses helped to prove that intestinal “Enteroviruses can infect all tissues of the human body. The tropism of each virus for certain tissues is not well understood…”. Reconstituting pathogens in the form of gut bacteria and viruses was learned early. Simon Flexner designed experiments in 1897 to alter the properties of harvested human colon bacilli and turn them virulent several years before he became the director of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. Flexner’s cadavers in 1890s Baltimore, taken to the labs of the newly medicalized Johns Hopkins University, were mostly victims of pneumonia and influenza, a ready surfeit of bodies that littered the northern port cities of industrial America.  https://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/07/30/enter-o-viruses/
*
Dr. Nancy Banks writes in AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire on cancer and AIDS, ..”new research suggests that ..[what] may be the primary cause of malignant growth..[is] the reduced efficiency of mitochondrial energy conversion as the result of oxidative/nitrosative stress… What is becoming imminently more difficult to suppress is the evidence that impaired mitochondrial metabolism, and specifically the Krebs cycle activity, may promote malignant growth… People diagnosed with AIDS are in a hypercatabolic low oxygen state where the body becomes exhausted in attempting to repair itself.” As she explains, “no virus need apply”. [p58]
… “There is no scientific data validating the contention that what is currently referred to as HIV is, in fact, a virus! …The goal was perception management… [and] the proteins claimed to be specific for HIV are universally present in everyone.” [pp306-308]
… Dr. Banks treats readers to a quote from Peter Duesberg: “Even very few oncogenic retroviruses –those endowed with cancer genes– hardly play a role as carcinogens for two reasons. First, viral cancer genes accidentally acquired are never kept by retroviruses after they are generated because they are entirely useless to the virus… Second, even if a rare oncogenic retrovirus infects an immunocompetent animal, a small tumor will appear within days after the infection, only to disappear again as the animal develops antiviral immunity. Antiviral immunity kills both the virus and all virus-infected cells.” [p54, AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire] https://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/immortal-cancer/

   So all is not peace and harmony in the Disease Continuum. But we should remember the words of H.R. Shepherd, 1993 founding chairman of the Sabin Vaccine Institute:  “Vaccines are the most powerful tool available to equalize the health of human beings in every corner of the world. Enlightened leaders understand the power of vaccines to help bring peace and opportunity to the most troubled places…” http://polioforever.wordpress.com/sabin-vaccine-institute/
   No story of great or worldly achievement in the 20th century seems complete or soluble without a reconciliation to public medicine. It electrifies the most compelling events of our time like the JFK assassination. https://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2011/11/06/the-jfk-conspiracy-con/
   Edward Mandell House, the intimate alter-ego and adviser to Woodrow Wilson, was reputed to have said (prior to WWI), “Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people… They will be our chattel… stripped of their rights and given a commercial value…”
   Without this knowledge can we know anything about the new designs of peace and opportunity planned for the 21st?
 As is my recent posting custom, this article is going to grow long and thick expositioning currents of power and change in the methods of modern disease.

“Throughout history, infectious diseases have killed more soldiers than have weapons… It has always been very hazardous to be a soldier.. but in recent decades the greatest risk seems to be carried by civilians… In 1993, the World Bank provided one of the first attempts to combine both death and suffering into a single number to represent the burden of disease (Disability Adjusted Life Years, or DALYs)… They found in 1990 a total of 1.4 billion DALYs lost in the world. Twenty-four different conditions each accounted for more than one percent of that total. Five of these 24 conditions involved violence: automobile injuries, falls, homicide, suicide, and war… The five violence conditions were second only to respiratory diseases..” –pages 4-5, War and Public Health, 1997, editors Barry S. Levy and Victor W. Sidel
So, there’s your commercial value –the unit measure of productivity representing your (everyone’s) worth.

INFLUENZA, notoriously lethal as the 1918 Spanish Flu, became a very interesting disease in the pandemic of 1889-1893, known as the Russian Flu: “The pandemic spread rapidly, taking only 4 months to circumnavigate the planet, peaking in the United States 70 days after the original peak in St. Petersburg.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20421481
An 18 page document describing the collective experiences of doctors with 6,000 Philadelphia patients notes that “The most important symptoms were undoubtedly those connected with the nervous system, and it is a serious question whether all the symptoms were not due primarily to derangement of that system.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2526633/?page=2
…”The duration varied from one week to three months of more…The sputum..was frequently noticed to be quite black from minute particles resembling soot or coal dust… Insane ideas were acknowledged by many…Fear of going crazy was excessively frequent… Vertigo was common… Violent headache..often continued for months… Cases which were left with local or general paralysis were subject as a premonitory symptom to exceptionally violent headache… Sight was often temporarily lost… We noted numbness of the limbs… A sudden loss of power in the limbs was sometimes an initial symptom… In many cases power was lost for long periods– ten months or a year, and sometimes it seems, permanently… For months after apparent recovery, fatigue or exposure would bring on exhaustion… Sustained thought was often utterly impossible… in effort there was a sudden slowing down of the heart… Heart-failure caused most of the deaths in the earlier part of the first year’s epidemic… The influenza type seemed to be stamped upon all diseases, modified them, and caused confusion in diagnosis… In what light are we to regard the persistent occurrance of innumerable paralyses of involuntary muscles? The list is too full to be accidental –bronchial, vesicular, ocular, intercostal, cardiac, gastric, biliary, hepatic, vascular, intestinal and rectal. These occur at once to the mind, and do they not indicate some disorder, some disarrangement, some alteration or possession of the nerve-centres and nerve-trunks concerned in the vital processes of the economy?” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2526633/?page=17
   Spanish Flu was another complex of neurological, hemorrhagic, and mixed illnesses confounded in wartime with lingering and permanent disabilities in survivors. I wrote of it here https://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/07/18/tracking-the-spanish-flu/ as an additional consequence of nitrate toxicosis, opening material for this blog as the H1N1 was advancing. My look back in history then, at influenza, was also looking like polio and AIDS moreso than any respiratory disease. Spanish Flu was a special case, rather a complicated set of conditions, and could not be a beginning for the “DC” but its extension. The pandemic of 1889, however, distinguishes itself with consistency as a conumdrum of “confusion in diagnosis”. The Philadelphians wrote, “The initial nasal cartarrh so associated with the name of influenza as to be popularly synonymous with it, often failed to appear early and was manifested later amid other affectations… vertigo and unsteady gait [was how] some cases began their attacks (in the first year) and in relapses these symptoms were often forerunners of renewed attack… The influenzal poison, whatever its nature, exhibits in protracted cases a likeness to malarial poisoning in symptoms and length of duration… The most severe and protracted cases were generally in the educated classes… Influenza cannot be a filth disease, as its initial outbreak was among the wealthy rather than the poor.
   Suggestive of something malaria-like, the Pennsylvania doctors concluded uncertainly that they were dealing with a bloodborne agent vectored similarly (by mosquitos) in a fashion of today’s West Nile Virus. Interest in the Russian Flu has revived since 2009 “reinforced by..the work of French epidemiologist Alain-Jacques Valleron from the Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale in Paris.” http://www.elementshealthspace.com/2010/06/03/the-russian-pandemic-of-1889-and-the-h1n1-pandemic-of-200910/  Valleron’s research is visualized in a short (and silent) video clip displaying a progressive ground-zero approach to the spread of 1889 Russian Flu: http://212.193.9.230/import/2010_50_Id_en/file049.pdf
   What is most interesting to me about the flu pandemic is that it followed so closely on the heels of the world’s first major polio epidemics in Sweden, which occurred in Stockholm shortly after modern vaccination practices came into being. Vaccination’s foremost advocate, Pasteur, found an institutional home in Paris during 1887-1888 with an international cast of fellows and more interesting still, the first credited scientist to isolate virus with disease-transmitting filtrate, Dimitri Ivanovsky, joined the University of St. Petersburg in 1887. By 1892, botanist Ivanovsky had proved his transmissable”virus” theory with the Tobacco Mosaic Virus, marking the birth of virology in history.
   The next year, 1893, with the Russian Flu still circulating, the United States had its first recorded outbreaks of epidemic polio.
*
POLIO (poliomyelitis) was a bugaboo of unknown causes when it emerged in the 19th century, called infantile paralysis for its most recognizable signs as a children’s disease. In this “golden age” of medicine (referring to the next link), a sparse timeline which appears dedicated to polio demonstrates the importance attached to it, retrospectively.
   “Confusion in diagnosis”, however, is polio’s outstanding historical feature. Even as late as the public distribution of Salk’s polio vaccine (the IPV) in 1955, polio was often diagnosed as grippe –the French-language equivalent of influenza– with significant intestinal involvement. Albert Sabin proved in 1947 that (enough) polioviruses caused grippe. For the longest time what could not be proven was that polioviruses caused polio.
   Researcher/author Jim West writes, “Mainstream science admits that most viruses are harmless, yet the word “virus ” adds to a biased and highly promoted language of fear regarding natureearly virus studies considered virus filtrates to be a poison… My site has several articles by the Nobel Laureate Alexis Carrel regarding injections of highly dilute poisons, similar to formaldehyde in Salk vaccine, which was 1:4000 concentration. Carrel injected carcinogens at 1:5000 to 1:250000 and caused reliably, cancer in chickens… Central nervous system diseases other than polio continue in the U.S. and throughout the world: acute flaccid paralysis, chronic fatigue syndrome, encephalitis, meningitis, muscular sclerosis… The unique correlations between CNS disease and CNS toxins present a variety of research opportunities not only in medical science, but political science, philosophy, media studies, psychology, and sociology.http://www.whale.to/a/west_h.html
   Mr. West’s well made and far-reaching point, unfortunately, is just not far-reaching enough. Janine Roberts, too, followed the West path, augmenting the polio resources and writing, “I had begun my research by looking at the many contaminants in the vaccine, but finally was forced to conclude: 1) that polio..was not primarily caused by the nominated ‘poliovirus’ –but primarily by human environmental pollution, particularly..insecticides… 2) that the disease was not stopped by the vaccine, but many cases were deliberately hidden by relabelling it –this led to the vaccine being attributed with a fictitious victory…[and]… 3) that polio might well be curable –if it is treated as a toxin-caused disease.” http://www.sparks-of-light.org/poliomyth.html  Broadly speaking, all diseases not classed as genetic in origin are toxin-caused. The statements above are a benign way of not being wrong but they’re also a clever way of not being forthright. Perhaps for some researchers it’s a beginning –not my beginning– that ‘settles’ prematurely.
*
The first recorded U.S. outbreak was in 1841 in West Feliciana, Louisiana (10 cases, no deaths). There was a half-century gap until the next cluster, in 1893 in Boston (26 cases, no deaths). Then, in 1894, came what is widely regarded as the first major epidemic, in Rutland and Proctor, Vermont (132 cases, 18 deaths). Thirty more outbreaks – from such seemingly disparate locations as Oceana County, Michigan, and California’s Napa Valley — were reported in the United States through 1909. The worst by far was New York in 1907, with 2,500 cases and a five percent mortality rate, a harbinger of the 1916 epidemic… Setting aside for now the 1841 Louisiana outbreak, reported retrospectively, something seems to have happened around 1890 to launch The Age of Polio in the United States. And something else must have changed around the end of World War II to create the large modern epidemics seared into the minds of older Americans, thousands of whom are poliomyelitis survivors and almost all of whom know someone who was afflicted.” http://www.ageofautism.com/2011/09/the-age-of-polio-how-an-old-virus-and-new-toxins-triggered-a-man-made-epidemic-1.html
  The authors and editors of ‘age of autism’, Dan Olmstead and Mark Blaxill, cite West and Roberts in an exemplary description of early pesticide-caused polio (from 1893 onwards, incriminating the poisons arsenic, lead, mercury and DDT) and then appear to lose track of the subject –polio– and follow pesticides, venturing conclusions that neither West nor Roberts suggest: “To summarize our theory: Polio is a virus, contagious like all viruses… When it is introduced into the human body, it has the capacity to enter the nervous system when nerves are damaged. Damage can occur many ways: mechanically through needle puncture or surgery, or, we propose, biochemically via pesticidal or other toxic exposure. Once the virus enters the nervous system, it becomes dangerous..[and] spreads through the nervous system via “retrograde axonal transport… lead[ing] to paralysis or death.”
   The failures and limitations of polio researchers presented so far unanimously neglect to actually follow the occurrence of the disease –if they did, they would fall over a body of evidence that associates polio with influenza and the most potent of co-factors that is a cause on its own, radiation. This was my beginning, and it immediately opened not just a door on disease, but a dimension. Welcome to the continuum…

AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire

Dr. Nancy T. Banks has exploded the myth of the HIV virus in her first book  AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire: The Deadly Virus of International Greed. Not only does she walk her readers through the medical fraud and science behind AIDS but she lays out the modus operandi of “just business” in unequivocal terms of official government policy and programming. The beauty of Dr. Banks’ work is that we have a tool to help deconstruct the other “public health” practices of the 20th century and look at the historical objectives hiding behind the so-called epidemics of the past.
 
Dr. Banks writes, “There is no scientific data validating the contention that what is currently referred to as HIV is, in fact, a virus! …The goal was perception management… [and] the proteins claimed to be specific for HIV are universally present in everyone.” [pp306-308]
   “The fallacy that a hypothetical retrovirus caused AIDS was used as an excuse to use carcinogenic drugs in human subjects to determine whether the loss of function of  T-helper immune cells could cause the development of tumor cells. …AZT was too toxic for most people to tolerate, had no lasting effect on HIV blood levels and left patients with fewer CD4+ cells than they started with..[p254] …AZT has been shown to be maximally toxic to the energy producing intracellular organelles called mitochondria. [p256]
   “AIDS is a free radical and oxidative [plus nitrosative] stress induced condition that appears more easily in people with malnutrition… AIDS is really not an immune deficiency but an energy deficiency..[p257] …The mitochondrian is also the major organelle that helps to control the redox potential of the cell environment measured in millivolts. In living cells, the effective proportion of reduced* substances to oxidized substances is called the redox balance.  …[O]xidative damage to mitochondrial DNA and to energy production enzymes inhibits the production of ATP… With less energy available the cell has three options: cell death, cell degeneration as occurs in disease states, or cell transformation as occurs in cancer..[p219]
   “With the prodigious help of the FDA, Burroughs Wellcome was about to make enormous profits by planned human experimentation of a drug known to cause AIDS and cancer. [p255]”
   “The mitochondrial stress effects of this drug [AZT] are analogous to the effects of nitric oxide (NO) radicals..[p262] …Microbes and humans possess the same type of eukaryotic cells. If a drug attacks the metabolism of the microbe, it also has the possibility to attack the metabolism of the human, and a range of antibiotics have been shown to do just that. However, the microbes have a distinct advantage. Because of evolutionary biology and their short life cycles, they have the ability to adapt to hostile environments faster than humans. Many of the drugs humans create to kill microbes end up killing themselves. [p263]”
   “Cells communicate by means of viral-like particles, electric currents, chemical emission, photons, and magnetic fields. There are about 100,000 reactions per second in all of our cells… Cells also make particles that travel through extra-cellular space to other cells, not to attack them, but to pass on information. The little particles have become known as retroviruses [p53]. …retroviruses do not kill the cells in which they reside as HIV/AIDS proponents claim that HIV does to T cells [p55].
“…when independent researchers were finally able to get access to [Robert] Gallo’s original research, they discovered that no virus was found in any of Gallo’s patients– only antibodies against something he was calling HIV. Antibodies are traditionally a sign that the immune system has rejected the virus. Gallo turned the function of the immune system upside down, and the medical community let him get away with that nonsense for three years before they began to speak out. He made the world believe that having immunity to a virus would lead to a disease [p56].”

“…there has been a huge increase in the number of genetic defects found in patients with mitochondrial disorders and..the true impact of mitochondrial disease is only just becoming apparent… mitochondrial diseases are far more common than was anticipated. [p265].
   “…chronic deficits in the more efficient mitochondrial oxidative metabolism are factors in the development of many chronic diseases [p57] …Otto Warburg’s work suggests that malignant growth might be caused by a decrease in mitochondrial energy metabolism paralleled by an increased glycolytic flux. The new research suggests that it is not so much the increase in glycolysis that may be the primary cause of malignant growth but the reduced efficiency of mitochondrial energy conversion as the result of oxidative/nitrosative stress. Numerous cancer specimens exhibit mitochondrial DNA deletions, reduced mitochondrial content, altered mitochondrial morphology and impaired oxidative capacity as well as an increase in glycolytic rate and lactate production. What is becoming imminently more difficult to suppress is the evidence that impaired mitochondrial metabolism, and specifically the Krebs cycle activity, may promote malignant growth… No virus need apply. [p58]”

I chose the quotes above for my own purposes in augmenting medical science articles on this blog, but as the book title anticipates, Dr. Banks has written a connect-the-dots model of the geopolitical usefulness of disease and the perception of disease. I could as well quote statements about history, finance, and power relationships from this book. Adding one more quote from the opening paragraph of Chapter 1:
“It is a great mistake to think that wars only concern armies, regulars or guerillas involved in active engagement… The real forces of evil wage another kind of warfare…[that is] principally financial. The dark princes of debt finance have gained practically unopposed leverage over every important social, economic and political institution, including and especially the healthcare delivery system.”
…point taken. Elaborating on how the medical system is “especially” integral in the military-complex is an objective here. It’s rare to find a medical expert who is able and willing to articulate such a broad context on the record and treat of so many aspects in detail. 
Thankyou Dr. Banks!
