The history of medicine is a long and distinguished one, as healers sought to alleviate illnesses and fix injuries since the dawn of humanity. Early records on medicine have been discovered from ancient Egyptian medicine, Babylonian medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, classical Chinese medicine, and ancient Greek medicine and Roman medicine.

The Codex Alimentarius is not a treaty, it is a commission created by the Food and Agricultural Organization and the World Health Organization under the direction of the United Nations for maintaining a system of guidelines, standards and recommendations that guides the direction of the global food supply. The commission claims to aim at telling us what is safe, but in the process often uses criteria that are manipulated to support the interests of the world’s largest corporations.
The TPP is a treaty that will raise the cost of health care, particularly of medications, by extending the length of patents, placing barriers to generics and giving the pharmaceutical and medical device industries greater legal standing to challenge reimbursements.
Proponents of TTIP claim it will promote economic growth and subsequent employment for millions, helping “the West” to compete with emerging economies such as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China & South Africa). But as it stands, the TTIP may include an Investor-to-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) clause designed to protect overseas investors from “unfair treatment”. This would potentially allow “investors” to seek legal redress against any government policy that it deems to affect them detrimentally.

Threats to health
Our genetic make-up, shaped through millions of years of evolution, determines our nutritional and activity needs. Although the human genome seems to have remained unchanged since the agricultural revolution 10,000 years ago, our diet and lifestyle have become progressively more divergent from those of our ancient ancestors. With the current food industry even more so.
Accumulating evidence suggests that this mismatch between our modern diet and lifestyle and our Paleolithic genome is playing a substantial role in the ongoing epidemics of obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, and more …[linkview show_cat_name=”0″ cat_name=”Hidden Health Costs”]

The old demonisation tactic appears to have also morphed into a “benign” tactic. A new mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD has been created. Brilliant in its simplicity. An increasingly inhumane system that medicates the growing number of people dissenting from it. Health Inc. utterly pleased. What an opportunity for profit![linkview show_cat_name=”0″ cat_name=”Labeling”]
