10 Health Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be Real (The Truth, March 23, 2014):

Do you believe in any “health conspiracy theories”?  Do you believe that there are “natural cures” for diseases that the medical establishment is not telling you about?  Do you believe that vaccines, cell phones or the fluoride in the water can have a harmful impact on the health of your family?  If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are not alone.  According to one recent survey, approximately half of all Americans believe in at least one “medical conspiracy theory”.  Thanks to the Internet, more people than ever are questioning the established dogma of the medical community.  As a result, more people are starting to make their own health decisions, and this has resulted in quite a backlash from the medical establishment.  They are spending a lot of time, effort and money to combat these “health conspiracy theories”, but as you will see below, quite a few of them have turned out to be real.

Soy Milk Is Bad For You:

If you were to eat unprocessed soy, it would cause cramping, nausea, and can cause more serious health problems.

Here are a few of the pamphlet’s false claims about soy milk (and the truth about them):


Soy: It’s Bad for You and It’s Everywhere, Even in Vitamins! (Activist Post, June 23, 2013)

With the abundance of studies showing soy’s damaging health effects, it’s crazy that doctors across the nation and food manufacturers everywhere continue to tout how good it is for you to eat a ton of it.

The Healthy Home Economist reported there are a whopping 170 scientific reasons to cut soy from your diet — everything from causing pineal and thyroid gland dysfunction, to endocrine system interruption, to stopping a woman’s menstruation, to dropping a man’s testosterone levels, to links to breast and prostate cancer.

But soy is a really tough cut to make considering that it is found lurking in seemingly everything in America! Soy isoflavones in protein shakes, added soy vegetable proteins, soy lecithin as an emulsifier… Recently we even found soy hidden in canned tuna in water!

In fact, Dr. Sanjay Gupta reported that if Americans are what they eat, then this nation is made up of corn and soy people.

The 10 Worst Toxins Hidden In Vitamins, Supplements And Health Foods

The 10 worst toxins hidden in vitamins, supplements and health foods (Natural News, March 26, 2013):

I’m absolutely shocked at how many people don’t investigate what’s really in the products they swallow. When something is sold as an herb, vitamin, superfood or supplement, they think it’s automatically safe. And while the natural products industry has a truly remarkable safety record — especially in contrast to the massive number of deaths caused by pharmaceuticals — it still suffers from a lot of hidden toxins that are routinely used throughout the industry.

I know this because I’ve been an investigative journalist and activist in the natural health industry for over a decade. Natural News is arguably the most-read natural health news website in the world, reaching millions of readers a month. I’ve walked the floors of countless trade shows, conducted hundreds of interviews and spent tens of thousands of dollars on laboratory tests to determine what’s in these products. On top of that, I’m deep into organic product formulations and certified organic food production, serving as the supervisor of a USDA-certified organic food production and packing facility.

Shock Finding: Most Probiotic Supplements Made With Genetically Modified Flow Agents, Fillers

Shock finding: Most probiotic supplements made with genetically modified flow agents, fillers (Natural News, Jan 22, 2013):

A Natural News investigation into the probiotics industry has turned up alarming information about how probiotics are formulated and labeled. We’ve found that nearly all probiotics available in the U.S. market today are secretly formulated with genetically modified ingredients that are intentionally not listed on the label. The most common such ingredient is maltodextrin, a corn-derived flow agent.

Look for yourself at the probiotics available today, and you’ll find something curious: Virtually none of them are certified USDA organic. Why is that? If you read the ingredients on the label, you might scratch your head and wonder why they can’t make those ingredients organic. But the real story is found in the “dirty little secret” that probiotics supplement manufacturers are not listing on the labels: Maltodextrin and other fillers and flow agents that are derived from GM corn.

The Calcium Supplement Problem: As Serious As A Heart Attack

FYI.


The Calcium Supplement Problem: As Serious As A Heart Attack (GreenMedInfo, Jan 4, 2013):

Osteoporosis is not caused by a lack of limestone, oyster shell or bone meal. Heart attack, however, may be caused by supplementation with these exact same “elemental” forms of calcium, according to two meta-analyses published last year in the British Medical Journal.

Back in July of 2011, the British Medical Journal published the results of a high-powered meta-analysis which looked at whether or not calcium supplementation had any effect on cardiovascular disease risk.  Indeed, this groundbreaking report, which was based on the results of five clinical trials conducted in the US, Britain and New Zealand, involving over 8,000 people, showed that taking elemental calcium supplements of 500 mg or more increased the relative risk of heart attack by 27%.

Doctor Wonders Why Vitamin C For Whooping Cough Treatment Is Ignored, Vaccines Pushed

Here is why:

Flashback: Whooping Cough Outbreaks Higher Among Children Already Vaccinated


Doctor Wonders Why Vitamin C for Whooping Cough Treatment is Ignored, Vaccines Pushed (Natural Society, Sep 22, 2012):

A doctor whom I greatly admire because she didn’t just step out of the medical monopoly matrix, she jumped out of it – Dr. Suzanne Humphreys, MD. is sounding some alarms regarding whooping cough treatment. She is now a homeopath and holistic health counselor and in the wake of a rash of whooping cough incidents, she raised the question, “Why is nobody mentioning vitamin C in whooping cough”?

Pertussis (whooping cough) vaccinations are given to infants, and are followed by booster shots a few years later. Now even adults are being hoodwinked into gambling with their lives on a vaccination that not only doesn’t work, but some say even helps causes the illness it’s supposed to prevent against.

The potential of a life destroying vaccine side effects is a lot to risk for a vaccination that doesn’t work.

FDA Looking to Ban B6 Supplements, Give Boost to Big Pharma

FDA Looking to Ban B6 Supplements, Give Boost to Big Pharma (Natural Society, Sep 22, 2012):

Vitamin B6, naturally present in a variety of foods, is necessary for proper nerve function, protein synthesis, regulating blood sugar, and producing antibodies and hemoglobin. In other words, it’s pretty important stuff. But, while many people get their B6 through supplements, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is looking to make things a lot more difficult—by slowly taking all forms of B6 supplements off the market so Big Pharma can make millions off of prescriptions instead.

According to the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH), the FDA has already begun their crusade. They removed Pyridoxamine (a natural form of B6) supplements from the market at the request of BioStratum, a pharmaceutical company. Why? Because BioStratum thinks it might be nice to use Pyrdoxamine in a prescription drug. They haven’t developed the drug, we don’t know what it is, and who knows when it will come to fruition, but the FDA honored a request from the big corporation to protect the company’s interest.

Now, the FDA is poised to pull another B6 product: P5P.

Amino-Acid Deficiency Underlies Rare Form Of Autism (Nature)

Amino-acid deficiency underlies rare form of autism (Nature, Sep. 6, 2012):

Genetic mutations in metabolic pathway could be fixed with nutritional supplement.

A rare, hereditary form of autism has been found — and it may be treatable with protein supplements.

Genome sequencing of six children with autism has revealed mutations in a gene that stops several essential amino acids being depleted. Mice lacking this gene developed neurological problems related to autism that were reversed by dietary changes, a paper published today in Science shows1.

Google Shopping Blocks All Vitamins And Natural Products – Glitch Or Deliberate Censorship?

Google Shopping blocks all vitamins and natural products – glitch or deliberate censorship? (Natural News, Aug 19, 2012):

If you have ever done any sort of comparison shopping online, chances are you have probably used Google’s Shopping portal to pull up product information and compare prices. But if you live in the U.S. and try to use Google Shopping to buy vitamins, supplements, personal care products, and even many health foods, your search queries will now turn up blank, as Google has apparently blocked access to all vitamins and natural products for American customers.

Right around June 28 of this year, Google Shopping users first began noticing that search queries for many common health products like “vitamin C” and “fish oil” began turning up zero results, whereas before they would generate a copious list of vendors that offered these products, as well as corresponding price information. In the days and weeks that followed, these same users learned that vitamins and natural products in general were no longer showing up in Google Shopping.
