The biggest killers, cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and many other diseases are largely man-made and iatrogenic in origin, yet we ignorantly dismiss their growing incidence to factors which we assume are not preventable.

Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide and deaths are projected to continue rising, with an estimated 12 million in 2030.


The claim by the World Health Organization is that only 30% of cancer deaths can be prevented. There is largely a misguided and misinformed statistic since cancer was a rarity more than 200 years ago, making the majority of cancer deaths 100% preventable since they have little to do with genetics or factors beyond our control.

A recent study of ancient remains has found that cancer is a man-made disease fuelled by the excesses of modern life. Tumors were rare until recent times when man-made environmental pollution and chemical-laced nourishment were introduced into the food supply.

Michael Zimmerman, a visiting professor at Manchester University, said:

'In an ancient society lacking surgical intervention, evidence of cancer should remain in all cases.


'The virtual absence of malignancies in mummies must be interpreted as indicating their rarity in antiquity, indicating that cancer-causing factors are limited to societies affected by modern industrialization.'

The first reports in scientific literature of distinctive tumors only occurred in the past 200 years or so, including scrotal cancer in chimney sweeps in 1775 and nasal cancer in snuff users in 1761.

Professor Rosalie David, who presented the findings to Professor Mike Richards, the UK's cancer tsar and other oncologists at a conference earlier this year, said:

'In industrialized societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death. But in ancient times, it was extremely rare.

'There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer.

Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the second biggest killer worldwide. Heart attacks and strokes make up the largest portion of CVD deaths and they are largely preventable.

Perhaps one of the biggest health myths propagated in western culture and certainly in the United States, is the misuse of an invented term "bad cholesterol" by the media and medical community. Moreover, a scientifically-naive public has been conned into a fraudulent correlation between elevated cholesterol and cardiovascular disease (CVD).


Cholesterol has not been shown to actually cause CVD. To the contrary, cholesterol is vital to our survival, and trying to artificially lower it can have detrimental effects, particularly as we age.

There are also a number of underlying determinants of CVDs, or, if you like, "the causes of the causes". These are a reflection of the major forces driving social, economic and cultural change including globalization and incremental population reduction policies which are keeping most of the sick indefinitely.

Epidemiologic research estimates that 280,000 die each year from iatrogenic causes in the United States. One of the largest determinants of CVD death is the advancement of the pharmaceutical industrial complex and long-term medications.

Drugs such as Vioxx, Lipitor, Mevacor, Crestor are causing and have caused millions of deaths worldwide and the number of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed in cardiology to promote and market these types of medications continues to grow.


Current day cardiologic interventions and procedures are far more deadly to patients than lack of exercise or poor dietary habits, yet this is rarely if ever discussed in mainstream discussion.

Researchers have spent decades looking for genes that cause diabetes, but there is increasing evidence that diabetes is really caused by viral infections.


In particular, type I diabetes was assumed to be genetic, but there is a fairly large amount of evidence that it is caused by viruses such as as Coxsackie B4 and other which may be linked to vaccines.


The incidence of type 1 diabetes is increasing throughout the world, which cannot be explained by genetics.

Modern food processing has also been blamed in the rising incidence of Type II diabetes. Food processing can produce glycation end products, oxidised ascorbic acid and lipoic acid, all of which may cause diabetes.


Infant formula in particular has high levels of glycation products, and added ascorbic acid.

Vaccines - A Major Cause of Disease
Type I insulin dependent diabetes mellitus is a disease that has now been linked to vaccines, as is Parkinson Disease, Tourette's syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, and several other neuropsychiatric disorders.

All vaccines are causing immediate and delayed, acute and chronic, increasing and decreasing, impairments to blood flow, throughout the brain and body. This IS causing us all to become chronically ill, sick, and brain damaged along a continuum of other symptoms, some of which are clinically silent until death.


Vaccines are causing ischemic "strokes". Since the damages are microscopic, we cannot see them as they occur. However, we can now see the neurological aftermath of these damages - within hours and days of vaccination - all vaccinations.

There is a direct and statistical correlation between the diseases that affect a given population (in developed nations) and the frequency of vaccines administered.


That being said, there is an excellent probability that hundreds of diseases in the modern world are simply a by-product of the harmful effects of vaccines.

Man-Made Pollution and Chemicals Linked to 200 Diseases
A US study by doctors from the Boston Medical Center and the University of California San Francisco working on behalf of The Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE) stated that,

“More than 80,000 chemicals have been developed, used, distributed, and discarded into the environment over the past 50 years.”

Pollution has been connected to about 200 human diseases, from cerebral palsy to testicular atrophy, and more than 37 kinds of cancer, the CHE study called “Chemical Contaminants and Human Disease” reported.


Even as the disease-rate intensifies, a New York Times article reports Americans’ shunning traditional medicine in favor of $27 billion spent on alternative therapies last year.

Classic Man-Made Diseases - Dengue Fever & Pandemic Flu
South America has faced one of the largest dengue fever epidemics on record.


Health alerts were declared in several countries since the outbreak began in earlier this year.

The recent outbreak of dengue fever is being portrayed by the media as a fortuitous reemergence of the disease in Florida and elsewhere in the United States after 75 years.

Dengue fever is a virus-based disease spread by the bites of mosquitoes. It can be caused by any one of four separate but related viruses carried by infected mosquitoes, most commonly the mosquito Aedes aegypti, found in tropic and subtropic areas.

Dengue fever has been the intense focus of U.S. army and CIA biological warfare researchers for over fifty years. As early as the 1950s, the army’s Fort Detrick in partnership with the CIA launched a multi-million dollar research program under which dengue fever and several addition exotic diseases were studied for use in offensive biological warfare attacks.

A University of Illinois international law professor Francis Boyle charged the Fort Detrick work would include,

“acquiring, growing, modifying, storing, packaging and dispersing classical, emerging and genetically engineered pathogens.”

Those activities, as well as planned study of the properties of pathogens when weaponized,

“are unmistakable hallmarks of an offensive weapons program.” (Read Wanted For Bio-Terrorism, Genocide and Conspiracy To Commit Mass Murder)

In early 2009, Czech newspapers questioned if the shocking discovery of vaccines contaminated with the deadly avian flu virus which were distributed to 18 countries by the American company Baxter were part of a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic.

Baxter flu vaccines contaminated with H5N1 - otherwise known as the human form of avian flu, one of the most deadly biological weapons on earth with a 60% kill rate - were received by labs in the Czech Republic, Germany, and Slovenia.

The swine flu H1N1 virus had three parents from two continents and appeared suddenly without warning, evading all routine flu surveillance and quarantine; sequence data suggest it may have been created from a faulty vaccine given to pigs in North America.

The CDC isolated and genetically altered (engineered) the H1N1 flu virus so that it could be used to make hundreds of millions of doses of the bio-terrorism agent. The new genetically engineered (novel) A-H1N1 virus then contained a lethal combination of bacteria, viruses, and toxins.

The CDC has also conducted experiments in which they infected ferrets with both the H1N1 swine virus and the H5N1 bird flu virus to see if they would "reassort" and create a new hybrid flu virus. (Read CDC Playing With Fire: Mixing H1N1 Swine Flu and H5N1 Bird Flu To Create For Super Flu)

Unexpected Natural Death of Iatrogenic Origin
So how do the pharmaceutical and chemical industrial complexes continue getting away with poisoning the population? One word...proof.

There is a high index of suspicion that an unexpected apparently natural death may be iatrogenic due to the medicines administered before death. The true adverse effects induced by drug interactions are rarely known in the medical community, especially relating to the extremes of age on the potency of drugs.


These are "biochemical deaths" and as such are difficult to prove at post mortem examination especially if the forensic pathologist has not been made aware of the identity of drugs administered before death. There are far too many Physicians in all corners that continue to use unnecessary drugs without the full awareness of the mechanisms whereby they can become lethal.

Iatrogenic causes of death are easily the number killer of humanity worldwide.


When any death occurs, the coroner will list the specific cause of death (i.e. heart attack) but never the "cause of the cause" (i.e. statins). Yet the "cause of the cause" is the single most important factor creating illness and death in our society today.


The hidden killers that evade detection to protect profits and expand disease are the biggest threats of all.
