Up In Smoke – 500,000 So-Called ‘Spontaneous’ Abortions & One Nasty Little Cigar

New Harvard Medical School research that says that for every 10 nanograms of DDT in a pregnant mother’s blood her chances of a spontaneous abortion rise 17%. This might seem academic to most of us because DDT was banned worldwide in 1972, so how could a pregnant girl or woman possibly be exposed to enough DDT to cause her to lose her baby?

I will show you with hard facts and hyperlinks to the science exactly how this is happening right now and why a single Tobacco product, Swisher Sweets, smoked every day in America by millions of young girls and women, is very likely causing hundreds of thousands of so-called “Spontaneous Abortions” – what some tragically call “little deaths”. This is mass poisoning caused by, at best, the extreme greed and negligence of the manufacturer and by knowing and deliberate dereliction of duty by legislators and regulators.

I say ‘so-called’ because this destruction of unborn human life isn’t spontaneous at all. The DDT contaminating this one brand alone, not to mention all the other nerve, hormone, and DNA toxins present, is a crime against humanity on the same scale as any war of aggression or genocide. How many other Tobacco Cartel brands would, if tested, show the same or worse contamination and are causing millions of their own “little deaths” right now?

The crime against humanity being committed here, by the Tobacco Cartel as a whole and not just by one greedy and irresponsible little company, is on exactly the same scale of suffering and death as the worst atrocities in history, and it is happening in what history shows us is the most invisible of all places – in plain sight.

I’ll show you hard data just below that demonstrates that every Swisher Sweet little cigar a young girl or woman smokes delivers @163 nanograms of DDT to the smoker’s blood. Because DDT is so persistent in her body, the amount of illegal, banned worldwide DDT in one Swisher Sweet a day can increase her chances of miscarrying the baby by over 200% before she even knows she’s pregnant or, far more tragic, can result in a mentally and physically damaged baby at birth.

That same amount of DDT will also make her and her daughters and granddaughters obese because it’s a poweful trans-generational obesogen that causes her body to make fat cells to store the DDT. It will also raise her odds, and her daughter’s and granddaughter’s odds, of developing breast cancer and diabetes especially if she is African-American, Latin American, or Native American. And just so we don’t ignore Swisher Sweet’s threat to her sons, male children who are exposed to DDT before birth have a high & increased risk of testicular cancer among many other nasty outcomes.

Roughly two million women, mostly young, African-American, Latin American and Native American smoke Swisher Sweets regularly which puts them at high risk of spontaneous abortion and miscarriage early in any pregnancy because of the DDT they are inhaling with every fruity little puff. (See data tables below on how much and why)

We know that hundreds of thousands of these @2 million female Swisher Sweet smokers will get pregnant at least once before they are 25. The data suggest that perhaps 500,000 out of the 2 million of these smokers will get pregnant and lose their babies at least once before age 25, and most won’t even know it because it will happen in the first few weeks of pregnancy. That’s when DDT is most effective at destroying the rapidly dividing cells of early developing life -early in the pregnancy.

This public health atrocity is totally under the radar. Not a single public health authority seems to be aware of or addressing this threat. Nobody in the African American, Latin American or Native American communities seems to be aware of this connection, yet many people are acutely aware of its terrible consequences – birth defects, miscarriages, developmental problems. Countless little lives ruined from the outset – for what?

Could this at least partly explain why so many young women in marginalized communities, where sweet, fruity and minty smokes are so heavily promoted, suffer such high rates of spontaneous abortion and miscarriage?

The danger from the DDT alone is clear: there are multiple pathways by which just DDT alone damages and destroys human life at its early stages, and lots of impeccable scientific resources say the same.

So, here’s the hard data. Tests I conducted for “Smoke No Evil” showed that Swisher Sweets were contaminated with 0.816 mg/kg of DDT. That is an incredibly high number – nearly 700# the exposure from any other consumer product in the world.

Here’s the math. The 0.816 mg/kg found in the “Smoke No Evil” tests translates to 816,000 nanograms per kilogram of Swisher Sweets.

Since each little cigar is about 2 grams, that translates to 1634 nanograms of DDT that are potentially bioavailable to the smoker each time they smoke.

After combustion and inhalation, studies from the 1960s (before such research was suppressed) show that @ 10% of the DDT in cigarettes is inhaled by the smoker.So assuming smokers are actually absorbing @163 nanograms of the total DDT in each Swisher Sweet they amoke, that amount will enter the lungs and then the bloodstream of the smoker.

We also know that inhaled DDT in cigarette smoke stays inside and doesn’t get exhaled. Those same 1960s studies looked at the amount of DDT exhaled and it turned out to be virtually none.

So bottom line is that with each little cigar, another +/-163 nanograms of DDT will enter the bloodstream of the girl or women smoker. As noted above, we know that for every 10 nanograms of DDT per gram of serum in her blood, her chances of a spontaneous abortion will rise by 17%.

We know that an average woman will have 300-400 grams of serum in her 5 liters or so of blood, and we know that DDT is bio-accumulative. A steady smoker will be increasing her total nanograms of DDT per gram of blood serum pretty quickly – with the excess steadily being stored in her fat. And if she doesn’t have enough fat her body will make more because the body is biologically compelled to store DDT in fat.

Because DDT is designed to cross the placental barrier, if the smoker is pregnant her baby will unquestionably be exposed. Smoking several Swisher Sweets a day puts the tiny baby at incrementally higher risk of spontaneous abortion long before the girl/woman may be aware she is pregnant. 

DDT targets living reproductive systems, and doesn’t discriminate between bugs and humans. It will abort babies regardless, and the more of it there is in the blood or tissues, the greater the likelihood of abortion. The world has been trying to remove DDT from contact with humans, and particularly developing human life, for generations. This Swisher Sweets company, part and parcel of the entire Tobacco Cartel, has such a gross disregard for human life that its actions are far more than negligent; they are criminal on the scale of crimes against humanity. There is intent here, and conspiracy.

Thing is – this atrocity is totally preventable. Legislation can fix it virtually overnight. Simply require that the Tobacco Cartel’s products meet exactly the same pesticide residue requirements that are currently imposed on Cannabis where it’s legal, or on milk, or on hamburgers, or on beer. Every other consumer product in the world has pesticide residue limits and requirements and is at least marginally inspected to insure that those requirements are met for public health and safety reasons. It isn’t rocket science. Organic tobacco is safer to smoke than pesticide-contaminated tobacco. Duh.

Smokers can continue to smoke without DDT and the other fungicides, insecticides, nerve poisons and hormone disruptors. Tobacco can be grown and tobacco products can be manufactured naturally, responsibly, and organically. American Spirit organic cigarettes prove this indisputably. The fact that there are nearly 200 commercial-scale organic tobacco farms in Virginia alone proves this indisputably – again. This atrocity is 100% the result of White government cowardice and negligence, criminal White corporate greed, and in my mind a clear White Elite eugenics agenda.

Why Bolivia & Peru Should Sue Merck & Coca Cola

Pizarro Kneels Before Mama Coca Just Before The Slaughter Of The Incas Begins

People of conscience rightfully condemn the Nazi looting of art and cultural artifacts from Jewish victims of the Holocaust, and from homes and museums around Europe. People also rightfully condemn the berserk destruction of cultural and historical treasures in Iraq and Afghanistan by ISIS and the Taliban. Many people also have living memories of colonial genocide and cultural looting of the European empires.

There is a growing body of international law that condemns and demands reparations on the part of former colonial powers like Britain, France, Belgium and The Netherlands whose military and “explorers” looted cultural and historical treasures of Greece, Egypt, Iraq, India, Indonesia, Africa and elsewhere in their Empires. The Spanish are certainly near the top of any list of looters of cultural and historical artifacts with their centuries-long conquest and domination of the Indian civilizations of Latin America.

And of course it can hardly be disputed that the Americans top the list of looters with their genocide against Native Americans and blatant theft of their ancient homelands, along with widespread looting of their cultural and historical artifacts, desecration of their graves, and theft of their cultural heritage. When this history is combined with the destruction and enslavement of entire African civilizations, and the forced obliteration of not only whole families and tribes but whole histories, Americans are definitely at the top of any list of historical and cultural criminals.

All of the victims of these various exercises of colonial avarice, hatred and slaughter are at some stage in seeking reparations. The Greeks want their temples back from the British. The Egyptians want the bones and treasures of their ancient Kings returned. Native Americans are demanding the return of their sacred objects and the bones of their ancestors from the Smithsonian. The Iraqis who have seen their Mesopotamian heritage scattered to the winds for centuries are currently being victimized by a blow-dried reincarnation of Jim & Tammy Faye in the person of the “Christian” owners of the tacky little “Hobby Lobby” chain in the US that is charged with large-scale looting on ancient artifacts in the Middle East. These elaborately coiffed smiley-face Oklahoma faux-Jesus worshipers of course deny everything, pleading that they had no idea that these little ole’ tiles were invaluable cultural artifacts.

Cultures worldwide are demanding the same of museums in France, Belgium and The Netherlands. The Chinese are demanding the return of cultural and historical treasures looted by the American-backed Chiang Kai Shek. American Black people are demanding reparations for the theft and brutalization of their families, cultures and history. Latin American cultures are demanding that Spain , Portugal and the Catholic Church return the wealth in gold, silver, culture and history stolen from them over the centuries of Colonial domination.

However, in the midst of all this worldwide outcry against theft of cultural and historical heritage by force and stealth, at least one enormous crime against Native People has been completely overlooked, and I am proposing that the people of Bolivia and Peru, who are the victims of this particular crime, organize and pursue legal remedy under the same body of international law that has begun to recognize the rights of other Native People worldwide.

The crime I am referring to is the theft of the Coca Plant by the European pharmaceutical industry that, since the 1840’s, has made hundreds of billions of dollars from the theft of this Sacred Plant of the Incas and has not paid one penny in reparation or shared any of the huge profits that this industry has enjoyed for over 150 years. Specifically, I am suggesting that Bolivia and Peru jointly sue the German Pharmaceutical company Merck, which was responsible for first looting Coca Plants from Bolivia and Peru and then extracting the alkaloid Cocaine from those plants, and then making Cocaine the core of the company’s fortunes as it grew into the globally dominant pharmaceutical giant of today.

The Coca Plant is indigenous to only one place in the world – the southern Andes – so Merck cannot claim that they took a plant that was readily available worldwide and simply exercised their scientific genius in producing Cocaine. The plants that Merck used to create mountains of gold from a few green leaves came from only one place, and were the cultural and historical heritage of only one People – the Native peoples who today live in poverty in Andes, remote from even a handful of the wealth so jealously guarded by the German pharmaceutical industry and others worldwide who profit from the cultural heritage of the Incas – companies like Coca Cola, who should also be named in any lawsuit for reparations brought by representatives of the Native People of Bolivia and Peru.

The art looted by the Nazis is being returned to the rightful owners under the law, and the families and descendants of those owners are rightfully being compensated. The stolen art, artifacts and bones of ancient civilizations in Greece, Egypt and elsewhere are gradually being pried loose from the talons of the museums erected by Colonial powers to display their loot. Even the American Smithsonian is finally, reluctantly recognizing that it has no right to make the corpses of Native Americans part of their “display”, and are, while doing a lot of foot-dragging, gradually returning the bones and cultural and historical loot stolen from the Native American people. And although there is enormous opposition among the elite and their toadies toward paying reparations to American Black people, at least there is some movement among American Black people themselves to reclaim parts of their stolen cultural and historical heritage.

So why shouldn’t Merck, Coca Cola and others that have profited from the theft of the heritage of the Incas be taken before the bar of international justice and stripped of at least a major portion of the profits that they have made from the theft of the cultural/historical heritage of the descendants of the Incas? The court of jurisdiction would also be responsible for assuring that the money recovered in the name of the descendants of the Incas was not re-looted by politicians in those countries, and instead went into a closely supervised non-profit international organization that was capped in the top salaries it could pay and the administrative overhead it could charge.

I think that this is the right thing to do, and I think it could be done beginning now. The indigenous People of the Andes have an historic opportunity to force the greedy capitalists of Merck, Coca Cola and other evil corporations to crawl on their knees dragging wagonloads of stolen wealth back to the people who are its rightful owners.

Using Zika To Depopulate Coca/Opium Growing Regions

I was looking at a map of the spread of Zika virus the other day and something struck me as odd. I noticed that 100% of the Coca growing region in the Amazonian territories of Brazil, Colombia and Peru and the Opium Triangle in SE are flooded with the virus.

zikaMap

The global health authorities are wringing their hands over how this could have happened.

I happen to have a suggestion – look at covert US drug programs and I’ll bet you find both the funding and the research to validate that this is a CIA/DEA atrocity and is very deliberate. (Of course such info could only be obtained if you were a US senator and stayed out of hot tubs.)

Does it strike anyone else as odd that the core of Zika is devastating two regions in particular – the Coca growing regions of the Amazon basin and the SE Asian home of the Opium Poppy?

Imagine yourself a Coca farmer in the Colombian Amazon, or a Poppy grower in the hills of Laos. The US has been sending full-scale military warfare against you, your family, your village and your livelihood for decades, and you have always bounced back. Those American’s aren’t so tough, right.

Now suppose that all over the Amazon Basin or the Laotian hills sweet-looking (native) public health nurses begin showing up in villages. You are gathered together to hear the nurse who shows up in your village, and she begins by showing some truly terrible pictures of malformed infants. Everybody gasps. Mothers clutch their bellies. Fathers look disgusted. This, the nurse tells you, is what the Zika virus will do to your children, your grandchildren, and anybody else who stays within the infected area. Then she shows you a map of the infected area and there’s your village – right in the middle of the dead zone.

Then she tells you that in men the Zika virus nests in your balls, and when you have sex your partner gets infected – if she isn’t already infected by a mosquito bite. The women inch away from the men on the benches where they’re sitting. The men glance around nervously. There are a lot of shriveled penises in the audience.

In women, the Nurse explains. the Zika virus just circulates in the blood, seeking our rapidly-dividing tissues and generally lying in wait for the big feast – pregnancy. There is no escaping getting bitten and getting infected, the Nurse tells the villagers – the only way to ensure maximum survivability it for the entire village to be transported to a Zika-Safe Zone declared by the government.

In the distance helicopters are approaching. The villagers are told that they have ten minutes to decide whether to stay or go. They will have to leave everything behind – anything could be a hiding place. Those who want to go are sprayed copiously with a toxic cocktail and bundled onto the choppers.

When the choppers have disappeared the nurse climbs back in her US AID jeep and leave, as soldiers emerge from the brush and gun down and then burn everybody who didn’t leave.

It won’t matter. Nobody will ever discover their crime. This part of the Coca growing region, or the Opium Poppy growing region, will never be visited again. These areas will be uninhabitable for a very long time.

Too far-fetched? May I remind you of Agent Orange? What about Paraquat? US agencies have a long history of mass chemical murders in the name of their “War On Drugs” and the Zika Virus might just be the most effective way ever devised of de-populating drug-growing regions.

Of course it is getting just a teeny bit out of control, but bioweapons aren’t perfect. That’s why they have to be tested occasionally, like the Zika virus. (Which by the way is wholly owned, with a full 1947 patent, by the Rockefeller Foundation whose Siamese twin relationship with the CIA is beyond dispute.)
