Eugenics In Action: "Flu kills 27 in Britain"

Never the industry to let up on fearmongering when on the contrary it thrives on it; the media networks across the UK are giving their fair dosage of doom and gloom for us all to sink our teeth into during the Holidays. Hmmm, what shall we focus on??: Well, there's the story of the missing young lady whose body has just been found on Christmas morning [reports are stating that she may have been strangled] - or there's the story of an apparent plot to bomb the London Eye - or how about the "severe" rate of deaths caused by the seasonal influenza virus and its variants?

Let's go for the flu angle...

Flu has killed 27 people in Britain since the influenza season began in October and transmission of the virus is picking up across the European Union, health officials said on Thursday.

A patient is given a H1N1 swine flu vaccination at the University College London hospital Enlarge photo Latest data from the Health Protection Agency (HPA) showed that 24 people died with the H1N1 flu strain that spread around the world as a pandemic in 2009, and three with from a strain known as flu type B. Eighteen of those who died were adults and nine were children.

"The level of flu activity we are currently seeing is at levels often seen during the winter flu seasons, but due to the fact that H1N1 is one of the predominant strains circulating at the moment, we are seeing more severe illness in people under the age of 65 than we would normally expect," said John Watson, head of the respiratory diseases department at the HPA.

European health experts have said other European countries should see the severe flu hitting Britain at the moment as a warning of what might be coming to them soon.

"Influenza transmission is now picking up across the European Union," Marc Sprenger, director of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), which monitors disease in the region, said in a statement.

The H1N1 strain is among the seasonal flu vaccines being offered across the world this year after the WHO advised it was likely to be the most dominant strain of the northern hemisphere's 2010/2011 flu season. Flu vaccines are made by several drugmakers including GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi-Aventis and Novartis.

Sprenger said the ECDC's advice was that all those who are recommended to have the influenza vaccine by their national authorities should get vaccinated as soon as possible.

"Vaccines and vaccination can be an emotive issue and citizens rightly ask for assurance," he added. "The scientific evidence shows that seasonal influenza vaccines are effective and very safe. They provide a protection of up to 80 percent against influenza on an individual basis."

For most people, flu infection is just a nasty experience, but for some it can lead to more serious illness. The most common complications of flu are bronchitis and secondary bacterial pneumonia.

"Flu can be an extremely serious illness for people in 'at risk' groups, including pregnant women, the elderly and those with other underlying conditions such as heart problems, diabetes, lung, liver or renal diseases and those who have weakened immune systems," said Watson.

Health officials said on Tuesday that more than 300 people were in intensive care with flu in hospitals across Britain.

H1N1 flu was discovered in Mexico and the United States in March 2009 and spread rapidly across the world. The World Health Organisation, which declared the pandemic over in August, said about 18,450 people died from the virus, including many pregnant women and young people.

Shyne Interview w/ CNN

Former Bad Boy Records rapper Shyne begins his journey of finding the truth; getting closer to God. Moses Michael Levi (born Jamal Michael Barrow) talks about how his research into Judaism started well before being imprisoned in 2001 for 10 years (serving 9) for attempted murder, assault, and reckless endangerment.

The music, he says, is informed by his Jewish faith, but listeners should not be expecting religious rhymes.

“I am not rapping about Kadish or Shabbat shalom – that’s not the music I make,” Levi says, referring the Jewish prayer for the dead and the Hebrew Sabbath greeting.

While he’s ditching the vulgar language of earlier recordings, his music still has not lost its edge, he says.

“It’s really just a change in direction – the anger is still there, you dig? The outrage is sill there at the profanity and obscenity of poverty.”

His lyrical focus now, he says, is much more political than it was in the past.

“I am still angry that people are suffering in Palestine, the people who aren’t terrorists. I am angry (Israeli soldier) Gilad Shalit is captive right now the way I was in captivity – but it’s just a different way to channel that anger.”

Labrinth - "Let The Sun Shine"

AYTD Public Service Announcement - A Reminder

AndYetTheyDeny thought now would be a great time to remind those [both long-time readers and new alike] of an overall summary of what this blog is about.

We certainly do not want to disrupt your living habits; or have you magnifying every aspect of your day-to-day life to the point of excessiveness and paranoia. Love, respect and kindness to oneself and to others are core aspects that lead to a living a positive, fulfilling and happy life. What we aim to do is to let you know that we have a strong belief that all these things come from one source; that being from the one true God. It is He that has created everything; this means good and bad. We want to let as many out there as possible know that He loves each and every one of you very much - however there are forces out there that not only want to separate the special bond between you and Him, but to instead wipe out all existence of His being and instead replace His way of living with their own twisted and sinister system. Joy, liberty and generosity will be exchanged for pain, domination and neglect.

We are sincerely pleading with all our hearts to you all, to please keep the goodness of God within your own spirits, by showing it in everything that you do. This will give you the best protection possible against that which is trying to deceive you, thus sending you down a path to the direct opposite of all which is good.

As mentioned before; God loves you - we just ask that you remember Him.

Now; on with the show.

Drink Up! Aspartame: The Oh-So-Sweet "Sugar-Free" Soft-Killer

What is aspartame?

Aspartame (or APM, E951) is an artificial sweetener, composed of 50% Phenylalanine, 40% aspartic acid and 10% methyl alcohol . Phenylalanine and aspartic acid are important amino acids and can be consumed naturally by the human body, but the high concentration of these elements within aspartame's formation makes for a much more arduous task. A relatively new man-made additive, it got discovered by accident in 1965 in the US by Dr. James M. Schlatter for science-lab based organisation G. D. Searle & Co. whilst he was aiming to create a drug to prevent ulcers.

How did aspartame get into the food industry?
In 1980, the US department, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) denied a petition by G. D. Searle & Co. for aspartame to be approved and included in food stuffs. CEO and President of G. D. Searle & Co. from 1977-1985 was none other than Donald Rumsfeld; whom after his tenure there became a part of US President Ronald Reagan's transitional administration. Upon being appointed into office; Rumsfeld abused his position by promoting acquaintance Arthur Hull Hayes from Commissioner to Head of the FDA, and subsequently gave aspartame approval for usage in food.

Soon after getting the green light, the advertising aspect for aspartame-inclusive products went into overdrive; with its unique selling point being that it's the ideal alternative to sugar in all of your favourite drinks. From teas and coffes to soft drinks, you can have sweet drinks without the calories and weight-gaining attributes sugar can give. All hail that which is aspartame!

Ajinomoto is currently the largest manufacturer of aspartame, whom bought its APM business from GMO-food (Genetically MOdified food) giants Monsanto in 2000 for $67M. Aspartame has various brand names, such as NutraSweet, Equal and Candarel. Ajinomoto is currently rolling out products under the newly added brand of AminoSweet.

Pro's/Con's of aspartame
  • Aspartame has virtually no calories. This aspect really appeals to the health-conscious that are interested in having a very nutritious eating lifestyle.
  • Approximately 200 times sweeter than sugar, aspartame appears to a be an abundantly tasty substitute to sugar.
  • Great substitute for those suffering from diabetes - they can enjoy foods with a sweet taste without having to worry about affecting sugar level intake [on the surface, that is - see Con #1].

So; what food products contain aspartame?

Featuring in excess of 6,000 food products, aspartame can be found in an ever-increasing spectrum of items. Initially heavily promoted and connoted with all that is "sugar-free", its now being slowly infiltrated into regular sugar-included foodstuffs too. One can find aspartame in soft drinks and sodas, juices, instant coffees, teas, frozen desserts, yoghurts, cereals, chewing gum and breath mints to name just a few various examples. Some countries even offer it as a table condiment in cafés and restaurants.

Here's a small insight into the kinds of items that have aspartame in them - you migh recognise some of them...

(for an extensive list of products that have aspartame in them; please check out the Supersweet blog, FoodEssentials and Boycott Aspartame .)

Next time you're doing your grocery shopping, have a look to see if "aspartame" or “Phenylketonurics: Contains a source of Phenylalanine” is labelled on some of your favourite foods and drinks. Having now being informed about what this sugar-substitute can do to your body, is having that sweet taste really worth the risk?

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #39

"And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers."

(Surah 3: Al-Imran (The Family of Imran); verse 85)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #38

"Verily, those who divide their religion and break up into sects (all kinds of religious sects), you (O Muhammad SAW) have no concern in them in the least. Their affair is only with Allah, Who then will tell them what they used to do."

(Surah 6: Al-An'am (The Cattle); verse 159)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #37

"The Jews said that the Christians follow nothing (i.e. are not on the right religion); and the Christians said that the Jews follow nothing (i.e. are not on the right religion); though they both recite the Scripture. Like unto their word, said (the pagans) who know not. Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection about that wherein they have been differing."

(Surah 2: Al-Baqarah (The Cow); verse113 )

Five Pillars Of Islam: Zakat


Zakat is the compulsory giving of a set proportion of one's wealth to charity. It is regarded as a type of worship and of self-purification. Zakat is the third Pillar of Islam.

Zakat does not refer to charitable gifts given out of kindness or generosity, but to the systematic giving of 2.5% of one's wealth each year to benefit the poor.

The benefits of Zakat, apart from helping the poor, are as follows:

  • Obeying God
  • Helping a person acknowledge that everything comes from God on loan and that we do not really own anything ourselves
- And since we cannot take anything with us when we die we need not cling to it
  • Acknowledging that whether we are rich or poor is God's choice
- So we should help those he has chosen to make poor
  • Learning self-discipline
  • Freeing oneself from the love of possessions and greed
  • Freeing oneself from the love of money
  • Freeing oneself from love of oneself
  • Behaving honestly

The 2.5% rate only applies to cash, gold and silver, and commercial items. There are other rates for farm and mining produce, and for animals.

Eugenics In Action: "Drug addict takes up 'cash for vasectomy' offer"

A drug addict has become the first man in Britain to take part in a controversial project which saw him get cash to be sterilised.

The 38-year-old, who wishes to be known to only as John, was given £200 in exchange for a vasectomy.

John, who has been addicted to opiates for 15 years and has been involved with drugs since he was 11 or 12, said the cash incentive spurred him into going ahead with the procedure.John said: "It was something that I'd been thinking about for a long time and something that I'd already made my mind up that I wanted to do. Just hadn't got round to it."

The addict , who admitted he had stolen things in the past and dabbled in dealing drugs, said that he was going to spend the money on overdue rent and shopping.

The controversial American charity, Project Prevention, was set up by Barbara Harris, from North Carolina, who adopted four children born of a crack addict mother.

The charity, which has already paid more than 3,500 American men and women addicted to drugs or alcohol not to have children, is offering the service to addicts in the UK and has set up a helpline for those interested.

When John called the helpline he had 30 days to think about his decision. He underwent the procedure on the NHS in mid-September.

He added: "It came as a bit of a shock to me knowing I was the first in Britain. I would have thought people would be snapping up the offer as soon as it came apparent as it was there.

"I won't be able to support a kid. I can just about manage to support myself. Just about got it together to do that."

The project also pays addicts to get long-term birth control including contraceptive implants.

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #36

"Those who spend [in Allah's Cause - deeds of charity, alms, etc.] in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the good doers). "

(Surah 3: Al-Imran (The Family of Imran); verse 134)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #35

"Those who believe and do righteous good deeds, there is no sin on them for what they ate (in the past), if they fear Allah (by keeping away from His forbidden things), and believe and do righteous good deeds, and again fear Allah and believe, and once again fear Allah and do good deeds with Ihsan (perfection). And Allah loves the good doers. "

(Surah 5: Al-Maa'idah (The Table spread with Food); verse 93)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #34

"Giving glad tidings [of Paradise to the one who believes in the Oneness of Allah (i.e. Islamic Monotheism) and fears Allah much (abstains from all kinds of sins and evil deeds) and loves Allah much (performing all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)], and warning (of punishment in the Hell Fire to the one who disbelieves in the Oneness of Allah), but most of them turn away, so they listen not. "

So; What Is In The Seasonal Flu Vaccine?

Amongst the cocktail of ingredients found in the differently-branded flu vaccines such as Fluvirin, Fluzone, and Afluria - below is a list of the the most dangerous culprits:
  • Thimerosal
  • Formaldehyde [formalin]
  • Polysorbate 80 (trade name of Tween™ 80)
  • Triton X-100™
  • Sucrose (table sugar)
  • Gentamicin (branded as Garamycin™)
  • Gelatin
  • Resin
  • Egg Proteins (containing including avian contaminant viruses)
The following is a brief breakdown of what each substance can do to the human body. As you will read, the potential side effects and symptoms due to consuming these don't just overlap those of what can be associated to being subjected to the common cold or to the full-blown influenza virus-disease - but rather exceed them and can make for a very discomforting time to one's health, to say the very least.

Thimerosal - An organic compound in which half its weight contains mercury. Although mercury is used widely for many products such as thermometers, batteries, paint, pesticides and light bulbs, it's also one of the dangerous metals around. Direct exposure of mercury to humans can be extremely toxic; it can seriously attack the nervous and respiratory systems. Brain damage and neurological disorders such as autism and ADD are often linked to mercury exposure. The Department of Defense classifies mercury as a hazardous material that could cause death if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Where the flu shot is concerned, thimerosal is used as a preservative, allowing other ingredients in the vaccine to "work" and "last" longer, as well as stopping the vaccine from being contaminated.

Formaldehyde [formalin] -
Is a highly reactive colourless gas in its purest form, but is mixed into various chemical compounds to make for a more stable substance. It is abundant within the atmosphere, but only really activated when combustion occurs - formaldehyde is a major component of smog. Its used widely as a preservative, and can be found in things like glues, antiseptics, resins, paints, film processing, and for embalming purposes.. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen (a substance that is linked directly to cause cancer), and can cause varying respiratory problems and skin conditions.

Polysorbate 80 (trade name of Tween™ 80) - is an amber-colored, viscous liquid with a slightly bitter taste. It's a detergent (a cleaning agent) and most commonly used as an emulsifier (a product that holds other products together) and a surfactant (a product that releases the tension of a liquid, allowing it to spread whilst keeping its status as a single whole product). Polysorbate 80 is used in items such as chewing gum, ice cream and other frozen desserts, shower gels/shampoos and liquid soaps. Its used also in many cosmetic creams and lotions. This substance has been linked to reducing fertility, and to dramatically increase the chance of suffering from severe anaphylactic shock.

Triton X-100 - Chemical compound that can be dissolved in water. Like Polysorbate 80, its a detergent. For the flu shot, Triton X-100 acts as an adjuvant; this means that it assists other ingredients in the jab to get the immune system to react to the vaccine - whether the reaction is to improve health or to allow for cell degradation is vigorously debated. Although not confirmed yet to date, it is considered to be a possible carcinogenic substance by the EPA.

Sucrose (table sugar) -
A high intake of sugar can severely slow down the efficiency of the immune system (Sugar has been proven to destroy the germ-killing ability of white blood cells for up to five hours after ingestion). High sugar intake is also related to increasing the chance of getting diabetes, osteoporosis and coronary heart disease - as well as contributing to hyperactivity, anxiety, depression, kidney and liver damage, and high blood pressure/cholesterol levels... amongst other things.

Gentamicin (branded as Garamycin™) - Mostly used as an antibiotic to fight bacterial infections and overall hault bacterial growth - It does nothing to fight viral infections... like the flu. Side effects of an intake of gentamicin include nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, or loss of appetite. Side effects of an intake of gentamicin include nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, or loss of appetite. More rare but serious side effects include numbness/tingling, muscle twitching or weakness, or possibly even suffering a seizure.

Gelatin - Translucent, colorless, brittle (when dry), nearly tasteless solid. Derived from the skins, connective tissues, or bones of animals, most notably cows and pigs. Gelatin is a popular emulsifier within the food industry; as its very good at distributing fats. It can also be easily coloured, is can be found in many sweets and confectioneries. Allergic reactions can occur as a result of of gelatin intake. Anaphylactic shock is also linked to gelatin consumption.

Resin - viscous compound that can be hardened when treated upon. Plants naturally make it; but the more stable man-made synthetic resins are more popularly used. Resins are used in all sorts of products but most commonly within the arts and crafts/ hardware industries; including things like varnishes and lacquers. Allergic reactions can be attained as a result of coming into contact with a resin-based substance.
