The plot to keep you sick (Opinion)Tuesday, March 08, 2011 by: Hesh Goldstein
The best way for me to explain this is to put it in the vernacular of the street, relating to it all as pimps, hookers, and tricks.
If you were looking at it this way, who do you think the pimps might be? The number one pimp on my list is the pharmaceutical industry. Why is that? First of all they are all publicly traded companies and the first and foremost goal of a publicly traded company is to increase profits. And the best way to increase profits is by increasing earnings per share. The best way to do that is to sell tons of the product you sell.
The pharmaceutical industry, first and foremost, is in the business of selling drugs. In order to sell drugs, people have to be sick. They have to be sick either through natural causes or by inventing diseases. We'll get to the natural causes down the road.
Up until about eight years ago there was never such thing as "Restless Leg Syndrome". Before "Gastric Reflux Disease" took on such a fancy name, it was simply known as heartburn. These are just a couple of examples of how the pharmaceutical industry invents diseases to sell drugs. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't come up with a disease called "Refrigerator Door Syndrome". I guess the main symptom of that would be opening up the refrigerator door and looking for something that didn't exist five minutes ago when you did the same thing. Or, they could come up with "Motivational Deficiency Disorder", which basically is a fancy word for lazy. Another one could be "Consumption Deficit Anxiety Disorder". This could be described as being in anxiety because your neighbor has more toys than you do. I'm sure if you guys try, I think you could probably come up with some classic diseases of your own. And who knows, maybe you could market them to the pharmaceutical industry and get paid royalties for the rest your life. (The fictitious disease names were created by Mike Adams).
The one thing they don't tell you when you take prescription drugs is that because they're synthetic toxic chemicals there is a really good chance that you will experience severe negative reactions to these drugs. The bad news is that President George Bush made it so that you can't sue the pharmaceutical industry if you get sick or die. So basically you're just subjected to taking their drugs and hope for the best.
In the year 2007, or thereabouts, the Governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, spend $15 million of taxpayer money to stockpile the Tamiflu vaccine, which was supposed to ward off the bird flu pandemic that never came. The irony of this is that in 2009 it was proven that the Tamiflu vaccine was completely worthless and that it didn't work . The other scam was the H1N1 flu vaccine that was created to contain the swine flu pandemic. That one never materialized either but they sure sold a lot of vaccines. Now, in Hawaii, because they're holding so many vaccines that never got used, they are recommending that children starting at 6 months old must get a second shot. See what I mean about the pharmaceutical industry being a pimp? Another nightmare is the Gardisil vaccine which treats the papilloma virus. Not only are they giving it to young girls to prevent cervical cancer, now they want to give it to young boys as well. What they are not telling anybody is that this vaccine causes sterility.
Other big pimps on the planet are the big food companies. These guys are merciless. They don't care what they sell as long as they sell it and make a big profit. The best way to do that is to sell you food full of fat, sugar, and salt - the heavenly trio - to keep you hooked.
Let's look at reality for a minute. Most people are hooked on a flesh-based diet. People are so addicted to this due to conditioning that they can't see reality if it came up and bit them in the butt.
By the time an animal is slaughtered, that decomposing flesh doesn't make it to your supermarket for at least a week. Do you mean to tell me that after a week a dead body can remain as bright and rosy as you see it in the supermarket?
And not only that, but that you can walk into the supermarket and not be bowled over by the stench? Why is that? It's because of the color enhancers and the stink reducers and the ammonia to kill the bacteria and the carbon monoxide to keep it pink and rosy, that it stays that color and doesn't smell.
Chicken is even worse. After the chickens are killed they are, if you'll pardon the expression, cleansed in a bath full of pus, urine, doo doo, and rot. And the USDA says, if you cannot see the doo doo through the clear wrap, it is okay to sell.
When you buy a food that is processed, you are buying something that is devoid of natural flavor and contains MSG, or a euphemism thereof, to give it its flavor. Did you ever wonder why when you go into a supermarket you can see food on the shelf for weeks without it spoiling? Did you ever wonder why that was? It's because of all the preservatives to increase the shelf life to increase the profit to not have any loss. Nowhere in that product is there any concern whatsoever for your health.
In Hawaii, we have the rare distinction of being the Spam capitol of the world. We even have Spam festivals here. I have a friend who told me he was friends with the Hormel family children, who by the way are all vegetarians. They were forbidden to eat Spam. Hawaii also has another distinction - it is the colon cancer capitol of the world. Some people will never learn.
Then another outrageous pimp is Monsanto. Monsanto says they will save the world with the food they produce - the genetically modified food they produce. What does that mean? It means that they take a food and make it impervious to whatever amount of their cash crop Round Up they spray on it. In other words, they will spray the hell out of the food with their favorite pesticide to make sure that no weeds or bugs hinder the growth of their products. Just as a side note, in India they did an experiment. They went out into the woods and they hung normal food from one tree and genetically modified food from another tree. They came back a week later and found that the regular food was all eaten and the GMOs were untouched. It's not hard to realize that the animals are innately smarter than the people.
Moving on to the hookers now, I guess the head of that group has to be the medical profession. With the best of intentions these guys go to medical school and wind up being subjected to curriculum that is funded by their pimp, the pharmaceutical industry. When they graduate from medical school they come out with a "take-a-pill" or a "cut-it-out" mentality. To say that when a person graduates from medical school is nutritionally clueless is an understatement. When a doctor treats a patient for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type-2 diabetes, arthritis, constipation, or whatever, it is always with drugs. When an oncologist treats a patient for cancer it is always with chemotherapy, radiation, and endless periods of time when your immune system hits rock bottom. Nowhere, ever, do they ever treat with nutrition.
Then of course you have the mainstream media that will do everything to protect their advertising dollars. Which, by the way, comes from pharmaceutical ads and ads from restaurants selling the foods that make sure you always see your doctor. Not only that, but the articles that appear somehow never favor plant-based diets or natural cures. Did you ever wonder why that was? It's all about money! No one really gives a damn about you being healthy.
Next we have a government agencies. We have the FDA, affectionately known as the Fraud and Drug Administration; the CDC, affectionately known as the Centers For Deceit Control and Procrastination; the USDA, affectionately known as the US Department of A@#$%&#s; and the FTC, affectionately known as the Federal Treachery Commission. Why do I describe them as such? Because they do anything to protect big business and little to protect the people.
The FDA will do anything to further the profits of the drug industry. They have no qualms in shutting down companies dealing with natural remedies. The fact, the head guys at the FDA are former pharmaceutical executives. Right now in the United States, the head of the Agriculture Department, Michael Taylor, affectionately known as "Monsanto Mike," used to be an attorney in that company.
It is a known fact that cherry juice is a great remedy for arthritis pain. Yet, the cherry growers can't say that and if they do the Fraud and Drug Administration will shut them down. Celestial Seasonings, the tea company, made the mistake of saying that one of their teas was sweetened with Stevia, a natural herb. Well, the FDA wouldn't hear of that. So, they told them that if they didn't take Stevia, listed as a sweetener, off the label they would shut them down. Pimps, hookers and tricks.
You all know that the CDC is a big pusher of fluoride. What a travesty that is. But what you didn't know was that in their Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report of August 17, 2001/ Volume 50/ Number RR-14, on Recommendations for Using Fluoride to Prevent and Control Dental Caries in the United States, on page 4, in the third paragraph, it says," fluoride's predominant effect is post-eruptive and topical." This means it works on the surface of the tooth after the tooth has come into the mouth. Nowhere, anywhere, does it say you have to drink the poison. Pimps, hookers and tricks.
The USDA is in bed with the dairy industry. The USDA protects the dairy industry as if it were a golden goose. Let me give you a good example: back when Bill Clinton was the the President, he hired Dr. Josylyn Elders, a black woman, as his Surgeon General. Dr. Elders, in her first week in office was going to make the announcement that Blacks were 95% lactose intolerant, that Asians were 80-85% lactose intolerant, that Latinos were 75% lactose intolerant and Caucasians were 70% lactose intolerant. Dr. Elders never got to make that statement. She was fired after a week. It's a classic case of a government agency protecting big business rather than the people.
Next we have, on the hooker list, the Public Health Officials. Boy oh boy, do they love to push vaccines full of mercury, thimerisol and toxic adjuvants. Autism anyone? Recently, an organization named Autism Speaks went public about trying to reverse autism. And they listed so many things that they were going to do. But somehow they failed to mention the vaccine connection. So I asked that question to the Director of Autism Speaks. I was told that vaccines do not contribute to autism. I then asked if the organization accepts donations from the pharmaceutical industry. The answer I received was, "not that much." Pimps, hookers and tricks.
Anyway, with regard to vaccines, a child by six months old has received nine vaccines. By the time the child is seven years old it has received 47 vaccines. And by the time that person is 70 years old, they have received 160 vaccines. You really mean to tell me that there's no danger in this? In New Jersey and New York there are no exemptions to vaccines. They are trying to do the same thing in Hawaii.
Recently, in Hawaii, there was a Hearing in which a bill was introduced to offer vegetarian and vegan meals in the public schools. The bill said that these meals "shall" be entered in the public schools. Two entities voted against this. The Board of Education and the Department of Health. When the wording of the bill was changed from "shall" to "should," meaning that now they had a choice to do it or not, these two entities voted in favor. Nothing like keeping kids sick and protecting the interests of the corporations.
I guess we also have to add the "shrinks" to the "hooker" list. They are a group of jerks that invented "Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder" as an excuse to put kids on drugs just because they might space out in the classroom.
Let's talk about the Dentists for a minute. Because the Dentists are hesitant to accept the low pay that Medicaid pays, they advocate fluoride. What a convenient way to ease their guilt. In Alaska, where dentists seldom go, especially in the remote parts, there are people that are trained as DHATS (Dental Hygiene Attending Therapists). These people can basically do what Dentists can do and are willing to go anywhere in Alaska. Guess who opposes them? The Dentists that refuse to go into the "boonies" to treat the people.
I always love the organizations that are out there doing their work to find cures for various diseases. My favorite is the American Heart Association. These hypocrites have spent 30 years trying to find a cure for heart disease. Every year in Hawaii they have a Heart Ball to raise money try to find a cure for heart disease. The cost to attend the Heart Ball is anywhere from $3500-$5000 a plate. And the menu items -filet mignon, prime ribs, and veal. I guess they figured nobody would pay that much money for fried tofu, steamed vegetables, and brown rice.
Let's get back to Monsanto for a minute. We already talked about their GMO scam, but don't forget these are the people they gave us Agent Orange. And we all know how wonderful this chemical is and the lasting effects of its exposure to our men that fought in Viet Nam. Recently, there was worldwide news that the bee colonies were collapsing. Why do you think that was? Because the bees have a hard time with the GMOs. In addition to all of Monsanto's horrors they are also involved with MSG and Aspartame. Nothing like putting something out there that screws up your brain as well.
I guess I spent a lot of time talking about the pimps and hookers and not about the tricks. If you want to know who the tricks are, just look in the mirror.
Hopefully, at this point you have a clear indication as to why you have to take complete responsibility for your health. You have to understand one thing: adhering to a flesh-based diet will cause you to succumb to degenerative disease. And even though the animals have died so you can put them on your plate, they have the last laugh from the grave by giving you arthritis, heart disease, cancer, constipation, and type-2 diabetes for openers.
Basically, the only thing that can help you reverse your health or keep you in good health is proper nutrition. Poor nutrition will destroy people and good nutrition will save people.
Food plays such an important role and has such a powerful impact In everything that matters is society. You all know that old saying," you are what you eat." We are a diseased nation eating foods that we really should not eat.
The Western diet consists of dead foods, which have been overcooked or microwaved, and processed foods, which have been bleached. It is a diet lacking large quantities of fresh, living, fruits and vegetables. It is a diet that avoids adequate water hydration and focuses on sugary beverages. It is a diet that includes large amounts of processed, homogenized, and pasteurized dairy products, which eliminates any nutrients whatsoever. It is a diet loaded with hundreds of different chemical food additives and preservatives. It is the diet consisting of conventionally grown pesticide contaminated foods. It is a diet consisting of large quantities of unhealthy oils such as corn oil or soy oil or partially hydrogenated oils. It is a diet of heavily fried foods or foods cooked at such high temperatures that it destroys nutrients while creating carcinogenic compounds. It is a diet comprised of hydrogenated oils, refined sugar, and enormous amounts of fat and salt. And all this is consumed by about 90 percent of the US population.
This diet, affectionately known as "the diet of death," adversely affects personal health, healthcare costs, and our children's ability to think clearly. This diet has a negative affect on Corporate America because the workers poisoned by processed foods suffer from repeated sick days, the inability to focus, failure to learn, and failure to create new ideas. With their brains fueled by junk foods and with failed education giving them few options for earning an honest living, more people turn to crime. In time, the prisons become filled with people incarcerated for behavior that could have been at least partially prevented with proper nutrition. With disease rates skyrocketing, violent crime on the rise, education failures rampant, and healthcare costs bankrupting families, happiness hits an all-time low. As junk food consumption continues through multiple generations, the genetic integrity of the population declines. Then, because the population is dulled out because of all the junk foods they are eating, economic productivity hits rock-bottom and employers shift jobs overseas where people seem to have much higher levels of productivity. To say this is a losing situation is a gross understatement.
Earlier in this article we talked about the pharmaceutical industry wanting to drug everyone and anyone to make a buck. But we really didn't talk about the problems that a medicated population invokes. Medicated drivers are no different than drunk drivers. This dullness also carries over to the workplace where medicated workers tend to make many more mistakes. You have people taking a medication to treat one disease and this somehow creates another disease because of the adverse effects of the synthetic chemicals. Because the pharmaceutical industry has a monopoly, the high pricing of the medications creates very high healthcare costs. And when those medications pass through the bodies of the consumers and eventually get dumped into the rivers and other waterways, they pollute the environment. And now, believe it or not, the FAA has relented and is allowing pilots to fly while on antidepressant drugs. Shades of Columbine!
This is a recipe for disaster: higher costs, lower productivity, increased rates of disease, decreased economic productivity, environmental destruction and a dumbed down population.
It is very clear when you walk around the supermarket or you watch ads on TV that America has chosen to adopt a really bad diet. People in this country are addicted to fast foods and junk foods and live to eat rather than eat to live. And this insane diet coming from that premise will have far more consequences than anyone can imagine.
Let me leave you with one last thought: if there was a concerted effort to keep you sick so you could die early and assuming you could die before you reached age 67, who do you think might benefit? How about the government? And why? Doesn't Social Security kick in when you reach age 67? If you die before you reach that age there is no danger of Social Security ever running out. That's because you won't be around to collect it at the age are supposed to. Food for thought!

About the author:
I have been doing a weekly radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called "Health Talk". In 2007 I was "forced" to get a Masters degree in Nutrition because of all the doctors that would call in asking for my credentials. They do not call in anymore. Going to www.healthtalkhawaii.com enables you, among other things, to listen to the shows. I am an activist. In addition to espousing an organic vegan diet for optimum health, I am strongly opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods, MSG, aspartame, fluoridation and everything else that the pimps (Big Pharma, Monsanto and the large food companies) and the hookers (the doctors, the government agencies, and the public health officials) thrust upon us, the tricks.
After being vaccinated with the MMS vaccine as a toddler I developed asthma. After taking the organic sulfur crystals in November of 2008 for 10 days my asthma reversed and has not come back over 2 years later. You can find out more about this incredible nutrient also on my website.
I am 72. I have been a vegetarian for 36 years and a vegan for 21. I have no illnesses and take no meds. I play basketball 2 hours a week, am in 2 softball leagues, racewalk, body surf, do weight workouts and teach women's self defense classes based upon 25 years of Wing Chun training.
My firm belief - if it had a face and a mother or if man made it, don't eat it.
