February 23, 2012 journal, Monsanto aspertame artificial sweetener is associated with blood cancers and is reported to be at a higher risk for men than for women. Dr. Mercola "Aspartame is an artificial sweetener used in diet soda and over 6,000 other sugar-free or "diet" products. New research1 linking aspartame to cancer in some individuals has sparked a flurry of commentary, including an "apology" from Brigham and Women's Hospital, a Harvard University teaching facility, for promoting the results2. I first found out about the study when ABC News contacted me and requested that I provide them with a comprehensive analysis of this 40-page study within an hour. Fortunately, I have extensively reviewed this topic and was able to provide their requested review. Funding was provided by grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The Harvard hospital originally sent out a press release with the headline: "The truth isn't sweet when it comes to artificial sweeteners." Alas, just half an hour before the release of the study, the hospital suddenly got cold feet, issuing the following statement: "Upon review of the findings, the consensus of our scientific leaders is that the data is weak, and that BWH Media Relations was premature in the promotion of this work. We apologize for the time you have invested in this story." According to Erin McDonough3, senior vice president of communication and public affairs, this was "the first time something like this had ever happened in her 25 years of working in media relations." http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/11/07/aspartame-causes-blood-cancer.aspx NBC News stated4: "Not all science deserves publicity. Some is not done well. Some comes to equivocal conclusions and serves solely to alert other researchers of the need for further study. The research... about a potential cancer from aspartame falls squarely in that second category. If such a study does get attention, it can often increase the confusion and anger that many people feel about science in general - and the study of possible risks and benefits of our diet, in particular." None of this surprises me. After all, can you imagine the liability the food and beverage industries, not to mention virtually every public health agency in the US, would face were there convincing evidence that a Why do you think the evil satanic Marxists who have now taken over this country are doing everything they can to debase and destroy the currency? Because they want to utterly destroy social cohesion. They want to break our spirits. They want to break us of any independent drive to action or productivity. They want to sap us of all of our creative energy. They want us to stop trusting in each other. Why? So that THEY will be the only thing anyone can turn to. THEY want to be the SOURCE of production, and thus THEY will be in control of all wages, earnings and, ultimately, all wealth. They want all creative energy to serve one end: THEM and THEIR PERSONAL WEALTH. They want everyone sniping and mistrustful of everyone else so that while we are busy fighting with each other we won't notice that THEY are raping us mercilessly and unceasingly. They want us to stop hoping and just give up. I'm just paraphrasing Francisco d'Anconia's speech on money from "Atlas Shrugged." And spare me the emails claiming that to quote Rand is to deny Christ. Yes, she was an atheist, but don't you think that God is powerful enough to reveal Himself through atheists, too? If you don't believe that is possible, then you need to give up pretty much everything in your life that has any origin in any mathematics or physics discoveries of the last 100+ years. Including all medical imaging and computers. To start. Don't be obtuse. Now back to interest rates. Now that we know what money actually is, namely an exchangeable, fungible representation of man's capacity to create and produce, we can easily understand what the TIME VALUE OF MONEY is. If you are going to let some one else use your money for a period of time, you will, by definition, NOT get to use that money yourself. Thus, you are giving up something very real in loaning your money out, and you need to be reasonably compensated for what you are giving up." "15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. 17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. 18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. 19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, 24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? 25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. 27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: 28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. 29 And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha. 30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. 31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteous-ness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness. 32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone; 33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." Romans Chapter 9 KJV
