Save Our Bones Bulletin: ‘Osteoporosis Gene’ Discovered, Universal Flu Shot In The Works, New GMO Ban, And More!
This month’s bulletin reveals some fascinating news. In their never-ending quest for the perfect drug, scientists are hailing the latest genetic discovery as a new opportunity for developing medication to “treat” osteoporosis by altering genes.
Researchers are also working on the “perfect” flu vaccine, in an attempt to overcome the virus’ constant mutations, culminating in an experimental vaccine that targets a protein common to all flu viruses. But not surprisingly, studies reveal frightening side effects.
Also frightening is the prevalence of GMO crops in our food supply, and you’ll be surprised to read which country has just banned these dangerous foods.
Yes, it’s been an interesting month, so let’s get started!
1. Discovered: A Genetic Variant Affects Bone Density
After measuring the genetic variants in 10,000 people, researchers compared the DNA of healthy individuals to those with health problems. They found a variant attached to the EN1 gene, which, although rare, occurs more frequently in those with osteoporosis and has a strong effect on bone density.
“…an international team of researchers led by Dr. Brent Richards of the Lady Davis Institute at the Jewish General Hospital has identified a genetic variant near the gene EN1 as having the strongest effect on bone mineral density (BMD) and fracture identified to date. …
‘EN1 has never before been linked to osteoporosis in humans, so this opens up a brand new pathway to pursue in developing drugs to block the disease,’ Dr. Richards, an Associate Professor of Medicine at McGill University, says by way of explaining the importance of the discovery. …
The use of such an extensive sample size allows for the observation of genetic variants that are not discernable [sic] among smaller groups. This particular study also stands as proof of principle that uncommon genetic variants can have a significant impact on common diseases.”1
It’s a shame that such a fascinating discovery is seen as a “brand new pathway to pursue in developing drugs.” It is clear evidence of the “magic pill” mentality – The Establishment is always looking for that perfect drug that will cure osteoporosis.
Of course, Savers know that osteoporosis is not a disease in need of a cure. In fact, it’s not a disease at all, and it can be managed by working with, not against, your body’s natural processes.
This is true even for genetics. By working with your body and providing it with key nutrients and regular exercise, you can actually influence your genes. More precisely, you can influence which genes and variants are expressed. A healthy lifestyle actually promotes health on the DNA level.
Drugs are simply not necessary to take care of your bones, and in fact, they can do great harm.
2. Scientists In Search Of “Universal” Flu Shot
The flu virus’ ability to mutate and change has necessitated re-formulation of the flu vaccine every year, with vaccine developers trying to stay ahead of the latest mutation. During the 2014-2015 flu season, the Medical Establishment missed the mark completely, and the flu vaccine did not contain the current year’s strain.
So researchers have been trying to develop a vaccine that targets an unchangeable protein called haemagglutinin , or HA, that looks like a microscopic spike on the surface of the flu virus.
“Existing vaccines target a part of the virus that mutates constantly, forcing drug makers and health officials to concoct new anti-flu cocktails every year.
…researchers tested new vaccines on mice, ferrets and monkeys that duplicate another, more stable, part of the virus.
Scientists have long known that the stem of haemagglutinin – a spike-like protein, known as HA, on the surface of the virus – remains largely the same even when the tip, or ‘head’, changes.
But until now, they have not been able to use the stem to provoke an immune reaction in lab animals or humans that would either neutralise the virus, or allow the body to attack and destroy infected cells.
To make that happen, a team led by Hadi Yassine of the Vaccine Research Center at the US National Institutes of Health grafted a nano-particle-sized protein called ferritin onto a headless HA stem.” 2
This “universal vaccine” would do its work by means never used before, which is already raising red flags in the scientific community. In fact, a study done on piglets showed that the mechanism of the universal vaccine – targeting haemagglutinin – can actually make flu symptoms worse.
The researchers observed that,
“…cross-reactive anti-HA2 antibodies enhanced pH1N1 infection…by promoting virus membrane fusion activity.” 3
This fusion activity was directly correlated with lung pathology, showing a reaction researchers have seen before. Known as vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease, or VAERD, this reaction can occur with HA-inhibiting vaccines, like the universal flu vaccine, and other strains of flu, greatly exacerbating symptoms to produce a much more dangerous illness.
One of the most notable things here is that this entire vaccine-developing approach fails to recognize that the human body has its own protection mechanisms in place. Your immune system acts like a protective armor to prevent illness. It makes much more sense to “arm yourself” by taking measures to boost your immune system than take the risk of a toxic flu shot.
3. Russia Bans GMO Crops
Russian authorities have decided that “poisoning your own population is bad government.” 4 The use of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) – specifically, GM crops – has declined in Russia over the last decade from 12% to a mere 0.01%. Now, a law is set to come into place in 2017 that will require state registration of GMOs that might come into contact with the surrounding environment.
This is in stark contrast to the deceptive practices of America’s Monsanto Corporation.
“At the same time that Monsanto’s corruption is infiltrating every corner of U.S. academia, government regulators and corporate-controlled media, Russia has just announced a total ban on the cultivation of GMO crops.
‘A senior Russian government member told reporters the cabinet decided that any food production in the country will completely exclude any genetically-modified organisms or parts thereof,’ reports RT.com. …
This puts Russia in a powerful position of producing nearly 100% non-GMO foods for both domestic consumption and export. Most consumers around the world, when given a choice, prefer to eat non-GMO foods. In the United States, the criminally-run food industry front group – the Grocery Manufacturers of America – is desperately trying to block all GMO food labeling in order to keep consumers in the dark about what they’re eating.” 4 [emphasis in the original]
Awareness of GMOs is increasing, paving the way for consumer voices to be heard regarding these bone-damaging, health-destroying foods. But unfortunately, GMOs are extremely prevalent and, once in the environment, very persistent. So while worldwide awareness and laws like Russia’s are beginning to take shape, the truth is that it’s impossible to avoid all GMOs at this point.
For example, the article notes that studies done on rats, which suffered severe liver and kidney damage in the experiment, involved a type of GM corn…
“…that’s grown across North America and widely fed to animals and humans. This is the same corn that’s in your corn-based breakfast cereal, corn tortillas and corn snack chips.” 4
Avoiding poisonous substances as much as possible is important as well, of course; but the reality is that some toxin exposure is inevitable. And toxins are cumulative.
This is why periodic cleansing is so important in a toxin-saturated world.
