Wifi, Microwaves and the Consequences to our Healt  - Barrie Trower

or over 300 years, beginning in the 13th century and continuing well into the 16th century, the Inquisition was a reign of terror for the vast majority of people living throughout Europe and Scandinavia. The political, economic and religious forces of that time joined together to consolidate their power by eliminating those whom they perceived as impeding their ultimate objectives.
    The unfortunate target of their efforts were the keepers of the healing arts and the ancient spiritual and cultural wisdoms. Historians debate the exact toll of such a hellish time-whether it was several hundreds of thousands or as many as nine million people-but what is undebatable is that the vast majority of the victims were women. In fact, the Inquisition is now regarded as a period of genocide against women, which successfully divested women of their power, self-respect, wealth, healing arts, and prominence and influence in their communities.
    The Inquisition guaranteed that the Church fathers were the indisputable spiritual authorities. It was also successful in enshrining medical knowledge securely in the realm of men, since the Inquisition decreed that only trained medical doctors could now practise the healing arts and, needless to say, medical schools were barred to women (for that matter, so was any form of education).
    What a relief that such a violent and misogynous era ended long ago. Or did it? Unfortunately, it appears that some traditions linger on. Women of today are still prey to vast political and economic interests, with dire consequences to their health, financial independence and personal power. Perhaps the Inquisition didn't end at all but just took on a more subtle and devious form. HORMONE HERESY - Oestrogen's Deadly Truth -by Sherrill Sellman

It was witches who developed an extensive understanding of bones and muscles, herbs and drugs, while physicians were still deriving their prognoses from astrology and alchemists were trying to turn lead into gold. So great was the witches' knowledge that in 1527, Paracelsus, considered the "father of modern medicine," burned his text on pharmaceuticals, confessing that he "had learned from the Sorceress all he knew."--Barbara Ehrenreich & Deirdre English. Witches, Midwives, and Nurses. Feminist Press, 1973. http://perso.wanadoo.fr/bel/sorcier.htm#skull  

What aspartame has done to the family is a crime.  If someone does get pregnant Dr. Bowen points out that aspartame is an abortifacient and also a teratogen (causes birth defects).  And if a live child is born he says aspartame may have heinously damaged DNA for generations to come.  DNA damage was proven on the Trocho Study in l998, and also showed that the formaldehyde accumulates in the cells with most toxicity in the liver but substantial amounts in the kidneys, adipose tissue (reason for obesity -fat cells), retina and brain.  Aspartame also ruins female response and trigger male sexual dysfunction....As Dr. Blaylock says in Excitotoxins, even if a child survives his mother using aspartame during pregnancy, by the time he reaches puberty you will probably see behavioral problems.  Aspartame reduces IQ, triggers ADD, autism, ADHD and other horrors..GLOBAL RELEASE   - ASPARTAME TOXICITY Forwarded by Diana Buckland by request of Dr. Betty Martini

In 2001, Cesarean section is still the most common OB/GYN surgical procedure. Approximately 4 million births occur annually, with a 24% C-Section rate, i.e., 960,000 operations. In the Netherlands only 8% of babies are delivered by Cesarean section. Assuming human babies are similar in the U.S. and in the Netherlands, we are performing 640,000 unnecessary C-Sections in the U.S. with its three to four times higher mortality and 20 times greater morbidity than vaginal delivery.  The Cesarean section rate was only 4.5% in the U.S. in 1965. By 1986 it had climbed to 24.1%. The author states that obviously an “uncontrolled pandemic of medically unnecessary Cesarean births is occurring.”106 VanHam reported a Cesarean section postpartum hemorrhage rate of 7%, a hematoma formation rate of 3.5%, a urinary tract infection rate of 3%, and a combined postoperative morbidity rate of 35.7% in a high-risk population undergoing Cesarean section.

Results of the “Million Women Study” on HRT and breast cancer in the UK were published in medical journal The Lancet in August 2003. According to lead author Prof. Valerie Beral, director of the Cancer Research UK Epidemiology Unit: "We estimate that over the past decade, use of HRT by UK women aged 50-64 has resulted in an extra 20,000 breast cancers, estrogen-progestagen (combination) therapy accounting for 15,000 of these.” We were unable to find statistics on breast cancer, stroke, uterine cancer, or heart disease caused by HRT used by American women. Because the US population is roughly six times that of the UK, it is possible that 120,000 cases of breast cancer have been caused by HRT in the past decade.
