The Science of RNA

Trust the “Science?” Nope, it’s trust our capital market technology and marketing campaign and don’t ask critically important science questions about the biological impacts of this experimental mRNA technology nor ask any questions about its trade secret ingredient.

Truth matters and so does real science.

“Because a scientist doesn’t just look at things and make up his mind. A scientist interrogates the system. You have to do an experiment to probe and answer important questions.” – Dr. Thomas R. Cech (Lecture 1 on the Double Life of RNA: Catalysis, Chemical and Biochemical)

You won’t see any of capital’s popular puppets interrogate capital’s economic and government systems and how they manufacture wars, poverty nor how their manufactured systems and technologies cause disease.

(Dr. Thomas Cech was born and raised in Iowa. He was awarded the 1989 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery of the catalytic properties of RNA. The below lectures were given in 1995, when Dr. Cech was a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Dr. Cech was also awarded the National Medal of Science in 1995)

Watch and learn because he’s an excellent science teacher and notice what he says in response to a question at the end of in his third lecture regarding therapeutic uses? Not advisable.

Notice what he says regarding medical applications and the complexity of the eukaryotic cellular environment?

These lectures are no longer available to watch at HHMI and were removed from their library catalog for a reason! Please record these critically important lectures and save them to other platforms. Please!!! They are part of our current library of Alexandria and we cannot allow them to be lost to our modern capital controlled dogmatists and cultists!

Life at the End of the Chromosome: Another RNA Machine

“The last thing we would want chromosomes doing would be to fold up and catalyze their own cleavage or rearrangement in an uncontrolled way!” – Dr. Thomas Cech, PhD

And that is precisely what many capitalist munition and pharmaceutical technologies do!

They manufacture fear and then sell their manufactured wars and market products that your taxes build to destroy all life!

Science provides understanding to natural systems and operations.

Dr. Cech is not popular nor mainstream because they perverted his discoveries for their manufactured purposes and they sure are not going to explain how their systems and market products create literal hell for the developing unborn, infants, and children.

“The last thing we would want chromosomes doing would be to fold up and catalyze their own cleavage or rearrangement in an uncontrolled way!” – Dr. Thomas Cech, PhD

This mother’s manufactured irrational fear of spiders that cause zero biological harm caused her to buy a capital product that was lethal to the development of her unborn child.

“Congenital and infant leukaemia are often associated with rearrangements of the MLL gene at chromosome 11q23. Several substances have been examined for their potential to cross the placental barrier and to induce such a chromosomal break at 11q23/MLL. Here we extend the list of drugs capable of cleaving the MLL gene, at least when cells are exposed in culture. Together with a rather unusual case history, our experimental data shed some light on the generation of congenital leukaemia and may help to prevent some of the fatal cases of this disease…

The infant died 48 hours after birth from multiorgan failure. Apart from the severe brain damage already diagnosed by ultrasound, the autopsy showed diffuse infiltration of lungs, liver, spleen, and cutis.”

Congenital leukaemia after use of permethrin during pregnancy

The mother suffered from arachnophobia (an irrational fear) since early childhood. Two years before her pregnancy she began to overuse aerosolised permethrin…. Permethrin is a widely used household insecticide. It is also known to be an efficacious drug against scabies and the head louse Pediculosis capitis. Compared with other drugs, it is considered safe and its topical use is recommended even for neonates with scabies. However, it has been linked to the generation of both chromosomal aberrations in bone marrow cells of mice and DNA lesions in human lymphocytes.

We therefore hypothesised that permethrin crossed the placenta of the pregnant woman and affected the haematopoietic precursor cells in the developing fetus, resulting in leukaemogenesis. We therefore tried to generate the rearrangements within the MLL oncogene in vitro by exposing BV173 cells to 50 μM permethrin. After 24 hours of exposure, the permethrin treated BV173 cells showed a clear MLL rearrangement, whereas the untreated cells showed the wild type MLL gene only (fig 1B).

Therefore we strongly recommend great caution in the use of permethrin during pregnancy. Even if definitive conclusions cannot be drawn from a single isolated case, our data strongly suggest that permethrin may have severe side effects when fetal haematopoietic precursor cells are exposed in utero. In the same vein, a recent report from a multinational collaboration indicated that use of mosquitocidal drugs during pregnancy is significantly associated with infant leukaemia. It is especially noteworthy that the authors found this assocition only for the MLL rearranged cases and not for MLL germline cases.

This strongly argues against selection bias in their case-control study and supports the hypothesis that in utero exposure causes the MLL rearrangements.”

The title is misleading because the mother stopped utilizing permethrin two years before her pregnancy. This case report is evidence of how persistent a pollutant this chemical is in the environment.

This capital market product is sold with zero warnings about the harm.

Scientific literacy does not serve capital interests because a literate working class would then understand all the mechanisms that many capital technologies cause massive biological harm.

Technically, it’s trust the capital hydrocarbon market technology and their capital marketing campaign.

Science explained how the hydrocarbon technology silenced genes during development through RNA interference. Thalidomide silenced the sonic hedgehog gene that builds hands and many more genes depending upon the concentration and timing of exposure. Many were aborted due to the severity of malformations so they were never even born.

Capitalists deliberately concealed the clinical trial study data from Auschwitz as they are deliberately concealing science that explains how their technologies cause biological destruction today of their latest manufactured mRNA nanotechnology product.

Capital doesn’t teach the working class actual science because then they wouldn’t support the systems and the manufacturing of what destroys their health to enrich their pockets.

For those that like to “follow the science” it doesn’t get any more scientific than following a Nobel Prize winning virologist….

Dr. Luc Montagnier, is a French virologist and recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). He has a doctorate in medicine. He has received more than 20 major awards, including the French National Order of Merit and the Légion d’honneur. He is a recipient of the Lasker Award, the Scheele Award, the Louis-Jeantet Prize for medicine , the Gairdner Award the Golden Plate Award of the American Academy of Achievement, King Faisal International Prize (known as the Arab Nobel Prize), and the Prince of Asturias Award:”The vaccines don’t stop the virus, they do the opposite — they “feed the virus,” and facilitate its development into stronger and more transmittable variants. These new virus variants will be more resistant to vaccination and may cause more health implications than their “original” versions.” – Dr. Luc Montagnier

“The history books will show that…it is the vaccination that is creating the variants. There are antibodies, created by the vaccine, forcing the virus to “find another solution” or die. This is where the variants are created. It is the variants that are produced and result from the vaccination…

You see it in each country, it’s the same: the curve of vaccination is followed by the curve of deaths…

I would like to summarize the potential dangers of these vaccines in a mass vaccination policy. Here they are:

  1. Short-term side effects: these are not the normal local reactions found for any vaccination, but serious reactions involve the life of the recipient such as anaphylactic shock linked to a component of the vaccine mixture, or severe allergies or an autoimmune reaction up to cell aplasia. In this group we should include a number of lethal blood problems involving clots and loss of platelets that cause strokes, brain bleeds and other impacts…
  2. The induced antibodies do not neutralize a viral infection, but on the contrary facilitate it depending on the recipient.
  3. The production of antibodies induced by vaccination in a population highly exposed to the virus will lead to the selection of variants resistant to these antibodies. These variants can be more virulent or more transmissible. This is what we are seeing now. An endless virus-vaccine race that will always turn to the advantage for the virus.
  4. Long-term effects: Contrary to the claims of the manufacturers of messenger RNA vaccines, there is a risk of integration of viral RNA into the human genome. Our cells have the ability to reverse transcriptase from RNA into DNA. Although this is a rare event, its passage through the DNA of germ cells and its transmission to future generations cannot be excluded.

Faced with an unpredictable future, it is better to abstain…

the Pfizer, Moderna, Astra Zeneca vaccines do not prevent the transmission of the virus person-to-person and the vaccinated are just as transmissive as the unvaccinated. Therefore the hope of a ‘collective immunity’ by an increase in the number of vaccinated is totally futile.” – Dr. Luc Montagnier (Nobel Prize winning virologist)

Two Top Virologists’ Frightening Warnings About Covid Injections Ignored by Government and Big Media

No telling how that technology is going to impact RNA interference in eukaryotic cellular operations either because there were no scientific investigations prior to Pfizer and friends manufacturing the technology with not one animal trial prior to human trials to ask critically important science questions.

HHMI Investigator Craig C. Mello Wins 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine

HHMI investigator Craig Mello of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and Stanford researcher Andrew Fire honored for discovery of RNA interference.

In 1998, the American scientists Andrew Fire and Craig Mello published their discovery of a mechanism that can degrade mRNA from a specific gene. This mechanism, RNA interference, is activated when RNA molecules occur as double-stranded pairs in the cell. Double-stranded RNA activates biochemical machinery which degrades those mRNA molecules that carry a genetic code identical to that of the double-stranded RNA. When such mRNA molecules disappear, the corresponding gene is silenced and no protein of the encoded type is made.

For decades, RNA molecules have been regarded as little more than DNA’s messengers, ferrying the genetic code to the cell’s protein-building factories. Craig Mello’s research has helped to establish that certain RNA molecules play a far more impressive role in the cell. In a groundbreaking discovery, he found that short snippets of RNA could silence the expression of targeted genes. This phenomenon, called RNA interference, not only has become an indispensable means for studying gene function but has been found to be a normal part of gene regulation during embryonic development and may play a role in cancer and other diseases.“

A groundbreaking preprint paper by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group, published Aug. 10 in The Lancet, includes alarming findings.

The study found vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the load of COVID-19 viruses in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated.

While moderating the symptoms of infection, the jab allows vaccinated individuals to carry unusually high viral loads without becoming ill at first, potentially transforming them into presymptomatic superspreaders.

This phenomenon may be the source of the shocking post-vaccination surges in heavily vaccinated populations globally.

The scientists studied healthcare workers who were unable to leave the hospital for two weeks. The data showed that fully vaccinated workers — about two months after injection with the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine (AZD1222) — acquired, carried and presumably transmitted the Delta variant to their vaccinated colleagues.

They almost certainly also passed the Delta infection to susceptible unvaccinated people, including their patients. Sequencing of strains confirmed the workers transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to one another.

This is consistent with the observations in the U.S. from Farinholt and colleagues.”

Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 Delta Variant Among Vaccinated Healthcare Workers, Vietnam

“23 complete-genome sequences were obtained. They all belonged to the Delta variant, and were phylogenetically distinct from the contemporary Delta variant sequences obtained from community transmission cases, suggestive of ongoing transmission between the workers. Viral loads of breakthrough Delta variant infection cases were 251 times higher than those of cases infected with old strains detected between March-April 2020.”

Learning How SARS Spikes Its Quarry

Summary

HHMI researchers have determined the first detailed molecular images of a piece of the spike-shaped protein that the SARS virus uses to grab host cells and initiate the first stages of infection.

According to Harrison, prior to these studies, researchers knew that one of the key steps in SARS infection occurs when the virus’s spike protein attaches to a receptor on the surface of target cells. Attachment of the spike protein permits the virus to fuse with a host cell and inject its RNA to infect the cell.

A detailed understanding of how the spike protein complexes with its receptor, ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme 2), could have important clinical implications. “The interest in understanding this complex has to do with the fact that this virus jumps from animals to humans, laterally among humans, and in some cases from animals to humans but without subsequent human-to-human transmission,” said Harrison. “And we know that those modes of transmission depend on specific mutations in the spike protein that affect spike-receptor interaction.

“One of the critical issues in a SARS epidemic would be to predict whether a given variant of the virus will jump species or move laterally from one human to the other. Understanding the structure of this complex will help us understand what these mutations in the spike protein mean in terms of infectivity,” Harrison said.

According to Harrison, Farzan and his colleagues laid the scientific groundwork for determining the structure of the spike-ACE2 complex. In 2003, Farzan’s team discovered that the ACE2 protein is the receptor for the SARS virus. They also identified a specific fragment of the spike protein that is involved in viral attachment.

As a result of those studies, researchers in Harrison’s and Farzan’s laboratories could concentrate their efforts on creating crystals of the relevant fragments of the spike protein in complex with the ACE2 receptor. After they had crystallized the protein complex, the crystals were then subjected to structural analysis using x-ray crystallography. In this widely used technique, x-rays are directed through crystals of a protein. The resulting diffraction pattern is analyzed to deduce the atomic structure of the protein or protein complex under study.

The x-ray structure revealed that the spike protein fragment showed a slightly concave surface that fits a complementary surface on the receptor, said Harrison. There was nothing surprising about the interaction itself, he noted. However, the studies revealed important new information about two specific amino acids on the spike protein. These were the amino acids that Farzan and his colleagues had previously determined to be the most critical for determining how the SARS virus adapted from infecting only civets to infecting humans.

“Both of these critical amino acids turned out to be right in the middle of the interface between the spike protein and the receptor,” said Harrison. Thus, the structure reveals details about how even small mutations in the spike protein gene that alter the identity of amino acids at those sites can affect the virus’s ability to infect humans. Such mutations enable viral transmission by altering the shape of the spike protein, which affects how well it binds to the ACE2 receptor, explained Harrison. In particular, he said, the new structure shows how mutation at one of the two sites can enable the animal SARS virus to infect humans, but by itself this mutation does not appear to allow subsequent human-to-human transmission.

Then Capital manufacturers manufactured the spike protein…

And that’s how capitalists pervert science manufacture an actual pandemic…

Class War

The state enables and assists in destruction of working class health on capital’s behalf. Capital even takes out life insurance policies on their workers. The conditions that lead to worker deaths provides executive pay and they can simply hire more workers to replace the dead.

“A lawyer who charges $50,000 for a criminal case . . . $5,000 is for the preparation and the trail work . . . and $45,000 for his expertise in advising his client whether to take the stand… This is a court of law, young man, not a court of justice.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr

The Western judicial system generates much capital and little justice because the system destroying our collective health always stays fully intact.

Capital literally murders their workers and consumers and it’s only a fine for the business that never reaches the injured workers and many even take out insurance policies on workers and profit from the deaths their workplace policies create.

There is no justice for capital crimes against humanity and they will continue until the systems that support capital’s interests are destroyed and replaced with ones that actually serve the working class and those most vulnerable like infants and elders who do not work and have no voice in the systems that exploit and destroy them most.

You should take the time to to read about all the worker life insurance policies that are taken out on workers by General Electric, Dow DuPont, and the banks below. Executive pay is created from those insurance policies taken out on their workers.

Of course capitalists want dead workers. Their manufactured deaths is what provides much executive pay today…

The working class have no actual power over the systems that destroy them because they continue enabling them through very purposeful bourgeois propaganda. When this Russian oligarch moved production to the US, the female workers went on strike and the police beat and assaulted them for asking for higher wages, safer working conditions, and shorter working days.

The doors were locked when the fire started and many jumped to their deaths. The bourgeois owners gave the families of the dead $75. They made hundreds on insurance for each worker’s death.

It happened yet again and the owners were only fined $20. Americans still don’t get that they have no working class party and they continue to demonize any attempt to even create a working class party who exclusively serves the workers not their exploiters.

Capitalists perversion of words and deliberately deceptive propaganda keep the barbaric systems destroying working class, community, and children’s health in place.

TRIANGLE’S ECHOES: The Unfinished Struggle for Worker Protection, Safety and Health

Capitalists deliberately create working conditions that kill their workers. It’s what enables executive pay today.

Death Benefits: An Insurable Interest

“Over time, life insurance began morphing from a tax shelter into a finance tool for executive pay. For decades, if an individual or company wanted to buy life insurance on someone, they had to have an “insurable interest in the person,” that is, the beneficiary of the policy would be directly affected by the insured’s death. This rule existed for obvious reasons: a skydiver, race car driver, or coal miner–and profit from his demise. And if he didn’t die soon enough, the policyholder would have an incentive to push him over a cliff.

Initially, companies bought policies to protect them from the deaths of certain executives, or “key” employees. It made sense for partners in law and accounting firms to buy life insurance on each other. But encouraged by insurance brokers, companies began buying it on broad swaths of their employees, because by insuring thousands of employees, not just “key men,” the companies can place greater sums in life insurance contracts.

Dow Chemical, the Midland, Michigan, company known for its manufacturing of napalm, breast implants, and Agent Orange, was initially skeptical. An internal memo noted that, except for top-paid executives, it was “doubtful that Dow has an insurable interest in any of its employees.” But it overcame its qualms and by 1992 had purchased life insurance policies on more than 20,000 employees.

Congress had no idea how widespread this practice had become until someone ratted on them. In 1995, a brown envelope was left on the desk of Ken Kies, chief of staff at the Joint Tax Committee. The envelope contained a list of companies that had bought life insurance on employees–along with the calculations showing that a company might take in $1.2 billion over ten years by insuring 50,000 of its employees. It also noted that from 1993 to 1995, Wal-Mart had taken out insurance on 350,000 workers….

“Page after page of a 1990 document called a “Death Run” lays out the names, ages, and Social Security numbers of more than 1,400 who would be worth more dead than alive. Also included was the amount of money the company was to receive when each employee died, even if the death occurred long after he or she left the job. Older workers would bring the company about $120,000 to $200,000 each, while younger workers would generate $400,000 to almost $500,000 each..”

The Poison Squad

The Poisoner’s Handbook

Song of the Canary story 1979

You’re the canary now and have been for some time…

We’ve been poisoned for over a century by capital manufacturers without informed consent and with the same poisons resold in many capital market products. Before formaldehyde was put in vaccines, it was added to milk that poisoned and killed infants and children in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Arsenic in wall paper and food coloring agents poisoned and killed infants and children before it was added as a preservative to wood to build the playgrounds to poison and kill infants and children in the 1990s. Lead never stopped, like arsenic, poisoning and killing infants and children as well as the working class in all capital industrialized nations. When government programs sprayed DDT all over that paralyzed small children and workers.. neither the governments nor industrialists provided informed consent about the biological harm of their organochlorine technologies nor DARPA’s first project to expand all organochlorine munition technology markets.

Informed consent has never existed in the first place..

PBS, American “academics,” intellectuals, the Republican and Democratic Parties, and media completely ignore labor for a reason. They don’t work for them and never have by design. They work for capital mass murderers and should all be seen as their accomplices.

There will never be a PBS series teaching labor about what destroys them. On Nova, brought to you by the Koch Foundation, there will never be an episode about the harm of benzene technologies. Those biologically destroying hydrocarbon technologies are far too highly profitable for our capitalists. They build and come in bomb, spray, pill, injection, chemical additives, plastics, birth control products, and make most of our consumer products. (Birth control IUDs was my unfortunate blindspot) Can’t allow the laborers or the working class consumers to be educated about the biological impacts of those technologies or they would see how they are knowingly being murdered for capital profit. PBS works for capital and so do all our government agencies. They don’t work for labor and they don’t work for the working class consumers of their designed destructive systems either.

“For twenty-one years, while the Kochs were financing an ideological war aimed at freeing American business from the grip of government, Donald Carlson was cleaning up the dregs their industry left behind. Stitched to the jacket he wore to work at Koch Refining Company, the booming Pine Bend Refinery in Rosemount, Minnesota, was the name Bull. His colleagues called him this because of his brawn and his willingness to shoulder the tasks no one else wanted to touch…

Its profitability had proven the Koch’s purchase of Pine Bend prophetic. It had become the largest refinery north of Louisiana with the capacity to process 330,000 barrels of crude a day, a quarter of what Canada exported to the United States. It provided over half of the gas used in Minnesota and 40 percent of that used by Wisconsin. Carlson’s job was demanding but he enjoyed it. He cleaned out huge tanks that contained leaded gasoline, scraping them down by hand. He took samples from storage tanks whose vapors escaped with such force they sometimes blew his helmet off. He hoisted heavy loads and vacuumed up fuel spills deep enough to cause burns to his legs. Like many of the thousand employees at the refinery, Carlson was often exposed to toxic substances. “He was practically swimming in those tanks,” his wife recalled. But Carlson never thought twice about the hazards. “I was a young guy,” he explained later. “They didn’t tell me anything, I didn’t know anything.”

In particular, Carlson said, no one warned him about benzene, a colorless liquid chemical compound refined from crude oil. In 1928, two Italian doctors first detected a connection between it and cancer. Afterward, numerous scientific studies linked chronic benzene exposure to greatly increased risks of leukemia. Four federal agencies—the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Center for Disease Control—have all declared benzene a human carcinogen. Asked under oath if he’d been warned about the harm it posed to his hemoglobin, Carlson replied, “I didn’t even know what hemoglobin was.”

In 1995, Carlson was too sick to work any longer at the refinery. When he obtained his company medical records, he and his wife were shocked by what they read. In the late 1970’s, OSHA had issued regulations requiring companies whose workers were exposed to benzene to offer annual blood tests, and to retest, and notify workers if any abnormalities were found. Companies were also required to refer employees with abnormal results to medical specialists. Koch Refining Company had offered the annual blood tests as legally required, and Carlson had dutifully taken advantage of the regular screening. But what he discovered was that even though his tests had shown increasingly serious, abnormal blood cell counts beginning in 1990, as well as in 1992 and 1993, the company had not mentioned it to him until 1994.

Charles Koch had disparaged government regulations as “socialistic.” From his standpoint, the regulatory state that had grown out of the Progressive Era was an illegitimate encroachment on free enterprise and a roadblock to initiative and profitability. But while such theories might appeal to the company’s owners, the reality was quite different for many of their tens of thousands of employees.

Carlson continued working for another year but grew weaker, needing transfusions of three to five pints of blood a week. Finally, in the summer of 1995, he grew too sick to work at all. At that point, his wife recalls, “they let him go. Six-months’ pay was what they gave him. It was basically his accumulated sick pay.” Carlson argued that his illness was job related, but Koch Refining denied his claim, refusing to pay him workers’ compensation, which would have covered his medical bills and continued dependency benefits for his wife and their teenage daughter. “The doctor couldn’t believe he was never put on workmen’s comp,” she added. “We were just naive. We didn’t think people would let you die. We thought, ‘They help you, don’t they?’

In February 1997, twenty-three years after he joined Koch Industries, Donald Carlson died of leukemia. He was fifty-three. He and his wife had been married thirty-one years. “Almost the worst part,” she said, was that “he died thinking he’d let us down financially.” She added, “My husband was the sort of man who truly believed that if you worked hard and did a good job, you would be rewarded.” – Dark Money (portions from pages 120 – 122.)

Bull never met my dear George who regularly visits me in dreamland. “Don’t forget about me!” And I always wake up. Reagan made certain their introduction would never happen.

For the working class suffering from Reagan puppet nostalgia…

“Banned OSHA films are now on YouTube. Industrial Safety & Hygiene News;Oct2008, Vol. 42 Issue 10, p16. The article reports on three banned films from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) which are on YouTube. These films include “Can’t Take No More,” “The Story of OSHA” and “Worker to Worker.” These films were originally produced and distributed by OSHA in 1980 during the Jimmy Carter administration, but were recalled and destroyed early in the Ronald Reagan administration by the new head of OSHA, Thorne Auchter.”

Please all meet George. He was a laborer working in Iowa City and has a message for all of you and one that poor Bull never heard.

“I don’t want what’s happened to me to happen to someone else.” – George

Multi-billion dollar capital industries made certain that this Iowa City man’s message was never received by the masses. They also made certain that labor and the working class would never have the knowledge that this potent carcinogen would be utilized to build plastics, lubricants, dyes, adhesives, pharmaceuticals, vaccines and pesticides. (Our evolved IG Farben cartel products and Israeli Chemical Combine.)

On June 29th in 1905, the Industrial Workers of the World, the “Wobblies,” is founded at a 12-day convention in Chicago. The Wobbly motto: “An injury to one is an injury to all.” That motto is more relevant today than ever!

Benzene kills and destroys health. Children have greater exposures to environmental toxins than adults. Pound for pound of body weight, children drink more water, eat more food, and breathe more air than adults. Moreover, the air intake of a resting infant is twice that of an adult. So when our nation’s leaders and elected officials decided to protect Fracking and benzene and coal tar technologies and all their monstrous synthetic offspring, they gave many of our most vulnerable children death sentences, birth defects, and a journey through hell on earth.

“Freedom” to the Koch brothers, Big Pharma cartel, Israeli Chemical Combine translates to no accountability for homicidal market systems and products.

They have known for a very long time that benzene causes cancer and they hid the truth from the public and the victims.

Exposed: Decades of denial on poisons but you all continue buying them and even make your poor children wear masks saturated with them!

New battlefront for petrochemical industry: benzene and childhood leukemia

Staley: The Fight for a New Labor Movement book excerpts (Capitalists are working hard to prevent any kind of working class movement to stop their complete destruction.)

“Phyllis Beals walked into her home in the late afternoon on May 15, 1990, after working all day as a sales clerk representative. She punched the play button on the answering machine and heard the cheerful voice of her husband, Jim asking her to bring his supper to the plant. There was nothing out of the ordinary in Jim’s voice or in his routine. Lately the company had often required overtime, so that Phyllis had to drive Jim’s supper to him. She looked at her watch: it was 4:30 P.M. She had just enough time to pick up some fast food and get to the plant by 5:00 to meet Jim in the parking lot….

As P.J. pulled into the Staley parking lot, she was surprised to see rescue units with flashing lights. P.J. parked the car and joined a married couple carrying out the same meal-delivery ritual. When the man started walking back into the plant, the woman said to P.J., “This damn place makes me so mad. When are they going to take care of safety?” Their eyes fixed on the rescue trucks.

P.J. replied with a comment that has haunted her: “Oh, probably when they kill somebody.”

The woman’s husband reappeared in the parking lot and asked P.J. to come to the plant. She anxiously went inside, where a group of workers told her, “Jim and some other men were working inside a tank. There was an accident. Jim has been hurt. We’re working on getting him out.” A cold chill went up her spine…

After two and one-half hours, Staley CEO Larry Cunningham came into the room and told P.J. that Jim was dead. P.J. looked at him in disbelief. The life of her beloved Jim, only forty-three years old, had been stolen. Tears streamed from her eyes as waves of shock swept over her.

Gene Sharp and other workers tried to console her and urged P.J. to go home. “My initial thought was, ‘I can’t just leave him here,’” recalled P.J. “They still didn’t have him out of the tank. They had a rescuer down there far enough to make sure that Jim was not alive, but I didn’t want to leave until I knew he was out”…

Jim Beals filed grievances against the company whenever he saw a violation of the contract or the law that might endanger one of his co-workers. Since 1988, when the London-based multinational sugar conglomerate Tate & Lyle had bought the Staley plant, management’s regard for safety had steadily deteriorated. “We’ve had a large number of near misses where workers almost died,” said Staley worker Dan Lane. As supervisors continually forced workers into hazardous circumstances, unionist Henry Kramer commented that management’s mind-set was “We’re not going to do things the safest way possible. We’re going to do them the cheapest way possible.”

The Staley workers were growing increasingly anxious and angry about their safety but encountered bullying tactics when they complained to the plant’s new management. “There was an atmosphere of intimidating people from filing safety grievances,” recalled Bill Strohl, who served as local union president for seven years in the late 1970s and early 1980s. “When they were filed, sometimes they would be found in a foreman’s desk weeks later. Sometimes they would just disappear. People were afraid of saying anything for fear of being fired.”

“People don’t report accidents, because if you do, you’re going to lose your job,” said mechanic Don Moore. “If you say something to [your supervisor] about an accident, they’re ready to throw you out the gate. You’ve got people out there getting injured every day who are afraid to go to First Aid.”

But Jim Beals was the exception. Weeks before, he had filed a grievance challenging the lack of safety procedures when tanks were cleaned. Management had refused to address the grievance, so the union planned to take it to arbitration.

Just two hours before his death, Jim Beals had gone to the union’s small office within the plant to talk to union officer Jim Shinall and to file another safety grievance. “Something has to be done about the propylene oxide problem,” said Beals, “because tragedy is just around the corner.” Several workers later reported that they could sometimes smell the toxic fumes outside the building…

Safety conditions continued to deteriorate. Supervisors forced workers to ignore OSHA standards as they worked with hazardous chemicals. When workers refused, they were verbally abused, usually disciplined, and sometimes fired. Nonunion contractors, whose workers were untrained in safety procedures and regularly violated OSHA regulations, were hired to do union work. The plant’s safety team was slashed from twenty-four to three… So when Jim Beals was killed on the job on May 15, 1990. the entire union workforce reacted with rage.” – Staley: The Fight For A New American Labor Movement by Steven K. Ashby and C.J. Hawking – 2009 (portions from pages 1 – 3, 23.)

Sadly, the Union followed the CIA playbook utilizing civil disobedience and were then crushed by the capitalists.

And capitalists have known benzene destroys our biology.

Benzene – “Most authorities agree the only level which can be considered absolutely safe for prolonged exposure is zero.”…

So what did they then do? They build colossal multi-million dollar markets off of it.

And in case you were wondering about the origins of “The Silent War”

The Environmental Management Committee of the Chemical Manufacturers Association is “managing” The Environmental Regulatory Arena Affecting the Chemical Industry

“Gentlemen, this is a campaign that has the dimension and detail of a war. Let me explain.

The Legislature and Regulatory Process (Figure 9) is fairly understood by all of us. Industry’s shortcoming has been IN NOT participating in all of the steps in this process. We must participate at every step, all the time, in this process. page 6

The allowable maleic anhydride plants is proposed to be set at zero under the New Source Performance Standards, forcing a shift away from benzene technology!!” page 8

“Gentlemen, this is a campaign that has the dimension and detail of a war. This is a war–not a battle. The dollars expended on offense are token compared to future costs. We must get the bad parts out of the regulations.” page 22

The Chemical Manufacturers Association was successful because they united and strategically planned and participated at every step of the legislation and regulatory process. The money they spent paid off and continues to do so.And the workers, children, consumers, and communities continue paying dearly because they continue supporting all their controlled systems and institutions.

They’ve even won their Silent War and the evidence is clear. Look around and see all who wear their masks of submission and who question none of their narratives nor the biological impacts of their technologies from their highly manipulative propaganda media campaigns! They continue to buy it all!

“I think unless the people are given information about what is happening to them, they will die in ignorance. And I think that’s the big sin. I mean if there is such a thing as a sin, that’s it, to destroy people and not have them have a clue about how this is happening.” – Alice Walker

LIVING DOWNSTREAM – Official Trailer

We all live downstream and without our informed consent.

The working and non-working class populations living downwind and downstream certainly have no informed consent to what is destroying their biological health.

The administrators and the the white collar executives who exploit their workers who spend all their days hitting a little white ball around organochlorine saturated greens are not your friend. They are there to keep the exploitation system in place.

Many today claim Marx supported Hegel… that would be on par as having someone claim years from now that I supported Cass Dow Chemical Fascist Sunstein…

I understand.

“In 1844 Marx had questioned the possibility of keeping the coming German revolution “which leaves the pillars of the house standing”, and declared Germany could be emancipated only through revolutionary proletariat” – The Bolshevik Revolution 1917-1923 by Edward Carr (Page 12)

This was the gist of the famous concluding passage of the essay On the Critique of Hegel’s Theory of Law, ending with the prediction that “the signal for Germany’s resurrection from the dead will be given by the crow of the Gallic cock” (Karl Marx-Friedrich Engels: Historisch-Kritosche Gesamtausgabe 1 Teil, I, i, 617-620)

That is not an endorsement, in my humble opinion, but many claim Marx supported Hegel. Most have not even bothered to read Capital by Marx either. It documents worker conditions that lead to mass murder of workers and primarily child workers.

The state enables and assists in destruction of health on capital’s behalf. Capital even takes out life insurance policies on their working class. The conditions that lead to worker deaths provides executive pay and they can simply hire more workers to replace the dead.

You get that injection and are injured or die? You better believe they will make money off your health destruction and death and it will be you and your family that suffers from the system that enriches their pockets emptying yours!

The Bleeding Edge Documentary shines light on medical device risks and injuries.

How cases of dementia and Parkinson’s have been ‘cured’!

“For many seniors, a hip or knee replacement is a life-changer that gives them their mobility back.

For an untold number of others, however, it can take away everything they hold dear.

In other words, it can be the beginning of the end.

Yesterday, I told you about the Wild West known as the device industry… and how the FDA will allow practically anything on the market, as long as the manufacturer can point to a similar device that’s already being sold.

But what’s outrageous, terrifying, and tragic is that this still holds true even if that prior device has been found to be dangerous and recalled!

As bad as that situation is, there’s one particular aspect of the medical device industry that belongs in a horrifying category all of its own: the spare parts that are used to replace our knees, hips, and shoulders.

Because it turns out that anyone who submits to joint-replacement surgery is at risk for developing a condition called arthroplasty cobalt encephalopathy, or ACE, but they may not know it — because the symptoms mimic those of Parkinson’s and even dementia!

And if there was any question whether ACE could happen to absolutely anyone, Dr. Stephen Tower’s story should convince you otherwise.

Dr. Tower is an orthopedic surgeon who knows these replacement parts inside and out – after all, his profession involves inserting them into patients!

So, when he himself needed a new hip back in 2006, he knew exactly what he wanted — a metal-on-metal hip replacement made by device manufacturer DePuy.

At first, everything was going well, Dr. Tower was back to the extreme biking he loved, so he considered the operation a success.

But then, over a year after his surgery, he started having “a slew of health issues.” He developed a tremor and ringing in his ears. That, however, was only the beginning, because he was soon driven to the brink of insanity.

While attending a medical conference, he became so unhinged that he totally “trashed” his hotel room while suffering, as his wife recalled, a “full-on breakdown.”

And the reason was something he never suspected: cobalt poisoning.

Cobalt is found naturally in the earth’s crust..”

(but like all metals from non-plant based will completely destroy the neurological and brain system.

To understand why all metals from non-plant sources are destructive to our biology you’d need to understand our evolution with calcium and why most physicians and why our cartel ruling class munition industrialists will never teach this in their controlled education systems. Utilizing cobalt is insane as utilizing lead as a base material for biological machines… for those interested in why metals are destructive to our biology can read more at the link below.)

Our Evolution with Calcium, Metals, and Our Biological Machines.

(Explains how destructive metals are to our bodies because they hijack calcium operations)

Our Evolution with Calcium, Metals, and Our Biological Machines.

“Testing of his blood and urine revealed 100 times the expected amount of cobalt in his body… and as it was revealed in the documentary The Bleeding Edge, the toxic metal was coming right from the DuPuy hip. The friction of the parts rubbing together (as they are intended to do) can release microscopic particles of cobalt into the body.

While it might seem far-fetched that an orthopedic implant could cause problems with the brain (even Dr. Tower found that hard to believe at first), we now know that it most definitely can.

And although that DuPuy hip, which Tower subsequently had removed, has since been recalled due to “system failure,” there are currently said to be a million Americans at risk from ACE and other health problems because of joint replacements.

Think about that for a moment… a million people, many of whom could have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s or dementia and led to believe their life was over, when, in fact, they could be “cured” in a matter of months by having the cobalt removed from their bodies.”

Implant Materials

Manufacturers offer products with different designs made from a variety of materials. Most devices consist of multiple components made from different medical-grade materials. Metal components usually consist of titanium or cobalt-chromium based alloys. These materials are known for their durability, and have stable (inert)* chemical properties such that they do not interact with the body. However, in some rare occasions, patients may have allergies to certain metals that may be a determining factor in which implant is used.

The most common material used to produce plastic components is ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. Polyethylene is common in many implantable devices because of its ability to glide smoothly within the mechanical joint and closely mimic the way a physical knee moves.

(*Hopefully those of you will recall many of my posts which explain how “inerts” “inactives” “excipients” in their pharmaceuticals are anything but! They are the things that typically cause the most biological injuries. Even the American Pediatric Association provided a comprehensive review listing 97 studies as evidence that their “inserts’ were killing and injuring infants and children. One inert in my son’s pharmaceutical suspension fluid almost killed him and caused him much suffering and why I started researching pharmaceutical inert technologies in the first place.)

What happens when no one identifies the source and removes it? The injuries and deaths continue…

Our elders end up being transferred to assisted care centers and further exploited and biologically destroyed.

Nursing Homes are huge profit centers for Munition sales (aka Big Pharma pharmaceutical sales)

U.S. Files Suit Against Johnson & Johnson for Paying Kickbacks to Nation’s Largest Nursing Home Pharmacy..

“In its complaint against J&J, the United States alleges that the company paid kickbacks to Omnicare to induce the nursing home pharmacy company to purchase and recommend J&J drugs, including the anti-psychotic drug Risperdal, for use in nursing homes. According to the complaint, J&J understood that Omnicare’s pharmacists reviewed nursing home patients’ charts at least monthly and made recommendations to physicians on what drugs should be prescribed for those patients.“

They are on the Covid Task Force Committee determining the policies of many nations and people trust their controlled political puppets, media, and government systems.

“Almost 90 percent of 300,000 nursing home residents with dementia got powerful drugs meant for treating serious mental illnesses like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in 2007, says Health and Human Services Inspector General Daniel R. Levinson. In an alarming statement, Levinson noted the complicity of drug companies in this dangerous practice: “Despite the fact that it is potentially lethal to prescribe antipsychotics to patients with dementia, there’s ample evidence that some drug companies aggressively marketed their products towards such populations, putting profits before safety…

The report didn’t explore this issue, but a series of lawsuits and settlements that DHHS helped bring about suggest that many pharmaceutical companies have improperly promoted these drugs to doctors and nursing homes for many years. For example, Eli Lilly pled guilty to criminal charges associated with illegally marketing its drug Zyprexa (olanzapine), including to doctors that treat elderly nursing home patients. Several other pharmaceutical companies — Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Astra Zeneca and Pfizer — settled government allegations that they improperly promoted their antipsychotic drugs for unapproved uses. Federal prosecution is pending against Johnson & Johnson for allegedly paying millions of dollars in kickbacks to induce Omnicare, the nation’s largest long-term care pharmacy, to recommend the use of Risperdal in treating nursing home patients, many of whom had dementia.”

“…interviews with dozens of people across the country reveal swelling numbers of less clear-cut deaths that doctors believe have been fueled not by neglect but by a mental state plunged into despair by prolonged isolation ̶ listed on some death certificates as “failure to thrive.” A nursing home expert who analyzed data from the country’s 15,000 facilities for The Associated Press estimates that for every two COVID-19 victims in long-term care, there is another who died prematurely of other causes. Those “excess deaths” beyond the normal rate of fatalities in nursing homes could total more than 40,000 since March.”

“The general conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. § 371, creates an offense “[i]f two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose. (emphasis added). See Project, Tenth Annual Survey of White Collar Crime, 32 Am. Crim. L. Rev. 137, 379-406 (1995)(generally discussing § 371).

The operative language is the so-called “defraud clause,” that prohibits conspiracies to defraud the United States. This clause creates a separate offense from the “offense clause” in Section 371. Both offenses require the traditional elements of Section 371 conspiracy, including an illegal agreement, criminal intent, and proof of an overt act.”

(But good luck trying to find anyone to enforce this because the cartel ruling class group controls all our systems, including the court system. The working class will have to act but they remain divided and that’s why they will continue to be systematically destroyed.)

The Elder Exploitation & Killing System

Our cartel ruling class created a systematic and highly profitable system that destroys our working class elders and gets the taxpayers to pay for it all.. They first poison them with heavy metal and toxic based plastic implants. When the “side effects” (biological damages that destroy their neurological and brain systems) from these devices become unmanageable, many are transferred to assisted living and care centers were they are further exploited and literally destroyed by even more of their highly profitable pharmaceutical (hydrocarbon) products.

When will the working class wake up and hold them accountable for their crimes against humanity?

Those who go along with their cartel killing systems are criminals for all that they enable.. they profit destroying health from birth until death and they con the working class to go right along with their health destroying and killing technologies and systems. Those working class enablers are as guilty of mass murder as those who fill their pockets the most at the top of their pyramid scheme.

Few today can seem to distinguish natural science from manufactured “science”..

Rachel Carson’s study at The Field Museum showed that as DDT (an organochlorine offspring descended from mustard gas munition technologies) concentrated in the calcium of eggshells, the weaker they became so they could no longer protect the life growing within them. This breakdown of the calcium that builds eggshells lead to many collapses in many bird populations where DDT was sprayed by our government programs and capital interests.

She was a natural scientist though so her studies were organic and not in manufactured pockets selling their eggs and egg products.

Quality of eggshells still matters and why eating eggs with weak eggshells are more than likely not healthy for you at all.

And I didn’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to conduct a scientific literature review to figure that out or listen to capital controlled media sources selling loads of other manufacturered bullshit either.

Take a good hard look at the X-ray image.

Organochlorines are as destructive to calcium in our bodies as it is in birds and in the biological construction of their eggs.

This is the X-ray of a worker’s hand that cleaned out organochlorine storage tanks. His hands were in excruciating pain as they absorbed the organochlorine and dissolved the calcium in the bones of the tips of his fingers. The bone is literally gone. His co-worker had excruciating head aches and was then diagnosed with brain cancer after he went blind. Many of his co-workers ended up with brain and liver cancers as well. Breathing in organochlorines goes directly from the lungs to the circulatory system, bypassing the liver, and immediately and directly concentrates in the brain. Calcium powers the brain and nervous system and builds bones. You can read more in depth about this or watch the documentary “Trade Secrets.” Remember natural science is never kept secret. It’s designed to be self-correcting only manufactured “science” is kept in secret.

Capital manufacturers know that all organochlorines destroy calcium. This X-Ray evidence is well known to manufacturers and has been for many decades. It’s not included in their market campaign adds or explained by their carefully manufactured PhDs selling the safety of all their organochlorine market products. The organochlorine in that storage tank was put in hairspray as the “trade secret” propellant. It’s put in nail polish, cleaning and disinfectant products, builds pharmaceuticals, pesticides, preservatives, and even builds toys for children and drinking water supply pipe systems for communities.

Organochlorines have a similar biological effect on calcium to radium and radiation.

Go ahead and trust capital’s manufactured “scientists” and “doctors” but know that it’s only a manufactured label used to sell their systems and markets. They don’t work for injured workers, communities, and children or they would be explaining the nature of injuries not filling their pockets while ignoring actual science that explains mechanisms of their harm. True science manufactures and sells nothing. Rachel Carson didn’t sell eggs! She explained their chemical composition and the biological impacts of organochlorines and organophosphates to bird health. She was a scientist and her critically important science lessons are still not being taught nor understood.

Science does not manufacture or sell any products but that does not prevent capital manufacturers from their perversion of the word “science” for the last century and despite all the evidence of their harm to working class health.

DDT so safe you can eat it 1947

(You only need to pay someone a load of money and slap a manufactured doctorate to their name to sell their manufactured poisons as safe.)

Blindness is a frequent organochlorine side effect as well but willful blindness is a side effect of capital manufacturing and propaganda addiction. Americans bond to their manufactured capital products and systems and sadly, not their children being destroyed by them.

The state enables and assists in terrorism and destruction of health on capital’s behalf.

“A lawyer who charges $50,000 for a criminal case . . . $5,000 is for the preparation and the trail work . . . and $45,000 for his expertise in advising his client whether to take the stand… This is a court of law, young man, not a court of justice.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr

The Western judicial system generates much capital and little justice because the system destroying our collective health always stays fully intact.

There is no justice for capital crimes against humanity and they will continue until the systems that create them are destroyed.

The science of epigenetics is evidence of capital’s crimes against multiple generations of working class health. Epigenetic science provides clear evidence that capital’s doing the opposite of protecting working class health. Grandchildren pay dearly for their grandparents exposures to capital products and that’s why the capital controlled education systems will never teach the science of epigenetics. Epigenetics explains the biological mechanism through which birth defects enfold. The CDC which claims to protect public health does not even have a national birth defect registry. That’s a significant oversight for an agency that heavily markets itself as protecting public health.

Birth defect cases don’t even matter to the CDC for data collection and investigation. They only publish data on infant deaths that are the result of congenital malformations. It was the leading cause of death in infants reported in the CDC’s data for the last two reporting years. That’s not worthy of a capital campaign for a reason.

PBS aired the HHMI program Ghost in Your Genes only once.

Some of us have been learning all about the pioneering scientific field of epigenetics for the past two decades. I learned about this field of science long before it aired on PBS and it only aired once in 2007 and is now no longer even available in the HHMI catalogue for even science educators.

You should ask why?

There’s a reason the information was immediately censored by the Dow Chemical and HHMI producers. They serve capital’s profitable systems not those being injured by capital markets seeking enlightenment about their injuries and their causes.

“You live your life as a sort of … guardian of your genome,” says Marcus Pembrey of the Institute of Child Health at University College London, a co-investigator in the Swedish study. “It seems to me you’ve got to be careful of it because it’s not just you. You can’t be selfish … you can’t say, ‘Well, I’ll smoke’ or ‘I’ll do whatever it is because I’m prepared to die early.’ You’re also looking after it for your children and grandchildren….” Epigenetics, Pembrey says, “is changing the way we think about inheritance forever.”

That’s why capital won’t educate its working class prey about that field of science.

Epigenetics is not only about inheritance but the science that explains  our biological development.

The working class pay dearly for illiteracy in the fields of biological science.

All genes are not equal. Dismantle the turning on or silencing of genes during critical stages of development and the result is birth defects.

The P53 gene is not equal to cellular health. The P53 gene/protein is called the “guardian of the genome” because it triggers the suicide of cells with damaged DNA. Inactivation of p53 can set the stage for the development of many different types of cancer.

The perfect bioweapon would dismantle the P53 gene and would lead to complete cellular system collapse and dismantle the symbiotic relationships within the cell and disable cellular health.

 Autopoiesis is health.

As Margulis once stated, “To be alive, an entity must first be autopoietic—that is, it must actively maintain itself against the mischief of the world. Life responds to disturbance, using matter and energy to stay intact. An organism constantly exchanges its parts, replacing its component chemicals without ever losing its identity. This modulating, “holistic” phenomenon of autopoiesis, of active self-maintenance, is at the basis of all known life; all cells react to external perturbations in order to preserve key aspects of their identity within their boundaries. If the external threats are major, normal cyclical processes may be disrupted and lead to disintegration.” – Microcosmos Page 56

Not all genes have equal value like the keystone species in ecosystems that create system balance. Take out the keystone species and the entire balanced ecosystem collapses. Dismantle certain key genes and you’ll have complete cellular system collapse.

It’s a system collapse that gives rise to cancer and other degenerative diseases.

We are a species that is filled with life. We are an ecosystem full of life and inheritance should be viewed as an inheritance system

Capital’s Big Pharma cultists don’t even understand that microbe communities are what provide health and fertility and that inheritance should be viewed as an ecosystem transfer.

Capital’s benzene technologies build birth control markets and this is why little research and knowledge of our reproductive Microbiome is taught.

The Reproductive Microbiome: An Emerging Driver of Sexual Selection, Sexual Conflict, Mating Systems, and Reproductive Isolation

“All multicellular organisms host microbial communities in and on their bodies, and these microbiomes can have major influences on host biology. Most research has focussed on the oral, skin, and gut microbiomes, whereas relatively little is known about the reproductive microbiome. Here, we review empirical evidence to show that reproductive microbiomes can have significant effects on the reproductive function and performance of males and females. We then discuss the likely repercussions of these effects for evolutionary processes related to sexual selection and sexual conflict, as well as mating systems and reproductive isolation. We argue that knowledge of the reproductive microbiome is fundamental to our understanding of the evolutionary ecology of reproductive strategies and sexual dynamics of host organisms…

**Furthermore, due to the prevalence of microbiome mixing and chance events (see Box 2) it is unclear to which degree reproductive microbiomes represent native assemblages or more transient, random assemblages, and, in some instances, there is significant contribution from a range of sources, such as the external environment (e.g., microbiome of gametes released into the environment and external genitalia) and other body sites of the host. In many instances, the structure of reproductive microbiomes may be the result of both of random and deterministic processes, which may lead to spatiotemporal dynamics in these microbiomes. Consideration of these ecological processes may also lead to greater clarity in our understanding and definition of reproductive microbiomes in the future.**

Evolution of a reverse transcriptase to map N1-methyladenosine in human messenger RNA

Abstract

“Chemical modifications to messenger RNA are increasingly recognized as a critical regulatory layer in the flow of genetic information, but quantitative tools to monitor RNA modifications in a whole-transcriptome and site-specific manner are lacking. Here we describe a versatile platform for directed evolution that rapidly selects for reverse transcriptases that install mutations at sites of a given type of RNA modification during reverse transcription, allowing for site-specific identification of the modification. To develop and validate the platform, we evolved the HIV-1 reverse transcriptase against N1-methyladenosine (m1A). Iterative rounds of selection yielded reverse transcriptases with both robust read-through and high mutation rates at m1A sites. The optimal evolved reverse transcriptase enabled detection of well-characterized m1A sites and revealed hundreds of m1A sites in human mRNA. This work develops and validates the reverse transcriptase evolution platform, and provides new tools, analysis methods and datasets to study m1A biology.“

N6-methyladenosine Modulates Messenger RNA Translation Efficiency

“N6-methyladenosine (m6A) is the most prevalent internal modification existing on eukaryotic mRNA (Desrosiers et al., 1974), and it impacts a variety of physiological events. On average, every mammalian mRNA contains over three sites of m6A within a G(m6A)C (70%) or A(m6A)C (30%) consensus sequence (Wei et al., 1976, Wei and Moss, 1977). The m6A modification on mRNA functions as a dynamic mark that is analogous to methylations on DNA and histone tails: m6A on mRNA is post-transcriptionally installed, erased, and recognized by m6A methyltransferases (“writer”; Bokar et al., 1997, Liu et al., 2014, Ping et al., 2014, Tuck, 1992, Wang et al., 2014b), demethylases (“eraser”; Jia et al., 2011, Zheng et al., 2013), and m6A-specific binding proteins (“reader”; Dominissini et al., 2012, Wang et al., 2014a), respectively. m6A methyltransferase is crucial for yeast meiosis (Shah and Clancy, 1992, Schwartz et al., 2013), the differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells (Geula et al., 2015, Wang et al., 2014b), the development of fruit flies (Hongay and Orr-Weaver, 2011) and plants (Zhong et al., 2008), and the viability of human cells (Bokar, 2005). The two m6A demethylases (FTO and AlkBH5) have been associated with human body weight (Dina et al., 2007, Frayling et al., 2007, Do et al., 2008) and mouse fertility (Zheng et al., 2013), respectively.

In addition to the physiological importance, one of the fundamental cellular functions of m6A has been directly connected to the stability of mRNA. The m6A-modified transcripts inherently possess shorter half-lives than non-methylated ones in HeLa cells* (Fu et al., 2014). The human YTH domain family protein 2 (YTHDF2) has been shown to affect the stability of m6A-modified RNA by localizing them to mRNA decay sites (Sheth and Parker, 2003, Wang et al., 2014a). The mRNA targets of YTHDF2 contain many transcription factors, indicating that the m6A-dependent mRNA turnover could serve to dynamically adjust the expression of regulatory genes (Wang and He, 2014b). This notion has been supported by recent studies of two yeast homologs of human YTH domain proteins that appear to affect mRNA stability (Harigaya et al., 2006, Hiriart et al., 2012, Kang et al., 2014) and the findings that m6A directs the expression of pluripotency regulators in mouse embryonic stem cells (Batista et al., 2014, Geula et al., 2015, Wang et al., 2014b).

Whereas mRNA is the direct output of gene transcription, proteins are the ultimate products of gene expression.”

Retroviruses are instrumental in operations in the placenta. Capital designed a technology that destroys a retrovirus and has yet to investigate if their technology impacts the retroviruses that we evolved with that enables females to create life within her.

Capital manufacturers tend to purposely not investigate answering those questions about their market technologies when they already know the answer to those scientific questions.

Retroviruses and the Placenta

“Retroviruses are often expressed in the placenta. Placental expression probably evolved to facilitate retroviral transmission from mother to offspring and from offspring to mother. In the process, the placenta became a site where retroviral genes were ‘domesticated’ to serve adaptive functions in the host, including the manipulation of maternal physiology for the benefit of the fetus. The evolutionary interplay between retroviruses and host defenses may have contributed to the remarkable diversity of form among mammalian placentas and to mechanisms of genomic imprinting.”

I think the working class needs an accelerated education in the biological sciences because capital technologies are marketed and sold long before the biological impacts of them are learned.

That’s why they don’t teach the working class science in any of their systems.

You’d then fully understand the capital crimes against humanity and they are afraid you are going to finally hold them accountable for them!

Understanding our symbiotic planet complexity helps you understand why these ruling class scientifically illiterate and psychopathic capitalist manufacturers should not be running any systems and policies at all!

President’s Cancer Panel Report 2010

The Medical Apartheid system was at the center of the German Nazi controlled nation that was designed by IG Farben, Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, and the Merchants of Grain Cargill and Co. Their focus was expanding their munition technology markets to enslave nations and profit destroying their health while building further markets to “treat” and exploit the conditions they and their financial predators create. The west is going to learn the same painful lessons now because they never destroyed the system but protected and expanded it…

Action T4: A Doctor Under Nazism (WWII Documentary HD)

“In Germany, in 1939, for the first time in the history of humanity (not quite*) doctors would willingly participate in the deaths of their own patients.” *Drinking the blood of young children was thought to restore health and was a practice utilized by doctors from Renaissance until Victorian times. Personally think “Victoria’s Secret” was far more sinister than a lingerie secret…

They discovered large iron deposits in certain regions of the brains of some of the exterminated “mentally ill.” They destroyed those injured by their munition technologies and protected and expanded the technologies.

Once you understand the epigenome you will be better able to identify the munition group responsible for specific epigenetic and genetic injuries… organochlorines and metals cause a wide range of biological injuries all classified as “mental illnesses.” The combination of metals and organochlorines completely destroys biological health. Brain and immune system destruction is most profound in the developing young. The biological health of the working class Germans would have been as poor in Nazi Germany as in the US is today. Cancer would have been widespread as would infertility and probably why so many of the elite and petite bourgeoisie would have been unable to produce any offspring and why these child breeding and child kidnapping programs in the nations Nazis invaded grew to big capital markets… (As would organ theft markets because munition technologies completely destroy organ systems over time as well. )

The kidnapping campaign of Nazi Germany | DW Documentary

“The Nazis considered disease to be a symptom of insufficient social discipline. Society was portrayed as a living organism that had to be protected from parasites and cancer cells.” The IG Farben exterminators/doctors were as literate in the fields of biological science and toxicology as the current evolved IG Farben (Merck, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, BASF, Bayer, Pfizer, 3M, Dow, Israel’s Teva Pharmaceuticals and company) munition salesmen and women of today… “National Socialism” is what they called the Nazi IG Farben subsidization system and that’s the evolved model in the US but even more toxic and lethal with the addition of radioactive technologies. The US truly is Blitzed: Part II gone nuclear and on steroids and the health of our nation’s children is very very bleak. They have the highest levels of persistent organic pollutants and metals in their little bodies than any previous generation…

The perfluorinated synthetics are off the charts in our youngest generation… 😢 Blitzed: Nazis On Drugs (WW2 Documentary) | History Documentary | Reel Truth History

In the US they put children on Meth but they call it Ritalin here…

“The Newest findings by brain scientists show that there is a mechanism in our brain that inhibits us from killing, and there was a way to get around that mechanism, and using certain synthetic stimulants such as methamphetamine are an effective way of bypassing that inhibition to kill.”

(Organochlorines destroy oxytocin production which is also known as the cuddle, bonding, nurturing and protector hormone. Males produce less oxytocin than females so they would be more susceptible to the biological impacts. Mice daddies fed organochlorine based diets raped and even consumed their own offspring. Whereas the control group mice daddies were as nurturing to their offspring as the mice mommies. Alcoholism, heavy metal accumulation in the brain and most organophosphates also disrupt oxytocin production in the brain. All can impact both males and females negatively impacting their biology and behavior.

What is “mental illness?”

They used to call lead poisoning being possessed by demons because of the seizures it causes. It’s too bad our brains are powered by calcium and metals and radiation trick the body into processing them as calcium but with horrific destruction. Calcium is a metal, by the way. Lead arsenicals were first applied in cotton production and then the poor workers were labeled insane and treated worse when they were poisoned with lead. Metal toxicity of the brain is very damaging and so are many other hydrocarbon technologies that end up there as well. Benzene technologies and those organochlorines (like Valium) sure do destroy the hippocampus of the brain….

Our insane ruling class who mass murder millions and manufacture war are not homeless but rewarded and they roll out the red carpet for them…

The children with autism who will be growing up wearing helmets and diapers unable to interact with the world that surrounds them from all the biological injuries of the technologies they’ve inherited from a scientifically illiterate working class will never be able to ask the previous generations..

“Why did you all not see what you were doing to all our health and stop it?!!!”

They won’t be able to ask that question so I will for them.

“Why do you all keep going along and support their destructive systems?”

These are the people the working class listen to and let them create the “health” policies of our nations?

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/08/coronavirus-vaccine-pfizer-ceo-says-people-who-dont-take-it-will-become-weak-link.html

Pfizer is a chronic criminal offender.

“At the very same time Pfizer was in our office negotiating and resolving the allegations of criminal conduct in 2004, Pfizer was itself in its other operations violating those very same laws,” Loucks, 54, says. “They’ve repeatedly marketed drugs for things they knew they couldn’t demonstrate efficacy for. That’s clearly criminal.”

The penalties Pfizer paid this year for promoting Bextra off-label were the latest chapter in the drug’s benighted history. The FDA found Bextra to be so dangerous that Pfizer took it off the market for all uses in 2005.

(That deadly hydrocarbon was a drug approved for the relief of arthritis and menstrual discomfort but don’t look at the other hydrocarbon and radiation products they sell that cause those two conditions in the first place…)

Across the U.S., pharmaceutical companies have been pleading guilty to criminal charges or paying penalties in civil cases when the U.S. Department of Justice finds that they deceptively marketed drugs for unapproved uses, putting millions of people at risk of chest infections, heart attacks, suicidal impulses or death… …twice the death rate for those taking a placebo. Those findings were reported in an October 2005 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association…”

One Thousand Lives A Month (CBS) This is the story of a drug that was on the market for 14 years and may have contributed to the deaths of thousands of patients. Trasylol, made by Bayer, is given in the operating room to control bleeding. It was a big money maker.

What the surgeon likely didn’t know was that there had been concern about the drug as far back as the early 1980’s. It was then, in Bayer’s hometown, that Dr. Juergen Fischer, director of the Institute of Experimental Medicine at the University of Cologne, found severe kidney damage in animals given Trasylol. He told Bayer, but he was surprised by the drug company’s reaction.

“I felt that Bayer wasn’t interested to examine these side effects,” Fischer says.

Soon, the same side effects were being seen in humans in America.

“The most common problem we saw was renal failure. That is, that kidneys did not function properly after surgery,” says the Missouri Baptist Medical Center’s Dr. Nicholas Kouchoukos, one of this country’s top heart surgeons.

The Bleeding Edge Documentary about the harm from birth control (Dr. Theo Colborn rightly called hydrocarbons “womb terrorists.”) and medical devices.

The ruling class paid sycophants and charlatans have perfected their art of deception to get the working class to buy all their destructive products and systems…

Perverting the word “science” for a century.. they conceal nature’s “true” biological laws from the collective working class that they con..

Propaganda campaigns still work as effectively as they did a century ago. Now, their sycophants and charlatans have millions of followers gaslighting anyone who presents any evidence of biological harm to promote the market sales of the technologies they sell to enrich their pockets….

Calcium is a metal and all metals and radiation are processed in the body as calcium. Yes, calcium is a metal. As an alkaline earth metal, calcium is a reactive metal that forms a dark oxide-nitride layer when exposed to air. Its physical and chemical properties are most similar to its heavier homologues strontium and barium. It is the fifth most abundant element in Earth’s crust and the third most abundant metal, after iron. Mammals evolved first consuming breast milk to acquire our calcium and more and then as we grow we ate green leafy plants that provided our calcium, iron, and more. We didn’t evolve injecting metals directly into our blood stream or eating rocks to acquire our metals. They came from our diet on plants and animals not contaminated with hydrocarbon and radiation contaminated agricultural, food, and water products.

Calcium builds our bones, powers our cells, neurological system and our brains and that’s why lead, mercury, aluminum, cobalt, cadmium uranium, and more are all stored exactly where calcium is stored.

Radiation is most destructive, of course. Radium has the same chemistry as calcium and that was discovered by Marie Curie in 1901. It’s too bad she didn’t study biology. (Chemists employed by Rothschild rarely know even basic biological facts) Its radioactivity is what destroys calcium completely.

Didn’t stop the capitalists from selling radium infused water to restore the health of working class Americans decades later after much evidence from France established how biologically destructive the radium-based products were that were sold there to the French working class.

They sold their health restoring radium water around their 1929 Wall Street heist. They’ve been lying and concealing harm to the duped working class for a century… why stop now?…

Eben Byers, drank a bottle a day for four years, at the end of which he died in excruciating pain from cancer of the jaw as his facial bones disintegrated…. This image of the biological damage was never featured in capital propaganda selling radium products and the markets continued to grow and expand….

Nothing knew and same strategies destroying more generations of working class and their children because they certainly don’t teach those biological facts and present the evidence of their technologies true biological mechanisms and destruction to our collective health… Keep buying all our ruling class systems, products and media and political puppets along with their academic sycophants and charlatans that keep enriching their pockets while robbing the working class of all its health.

Ruling class systems protect and enrich themselves at your massive collective expense. … continue ignoring overwhelming evidence about how much harm our parasitic ruling class has cost us and our children. The minds and hearts of the collective working class are empty and our species and children will keep paying the ultimate price. Well done! Keep buying all that their charlatans sell you! Carl Sagan was spot on. It’s blowing up in our faces and the working class is too functionally illiterate to even understand it.

“Without I.G. and coal, I can have no foreign policy” – Gustav Stresemann, chancellor and foreign minister during the Weimar Republic (IG Farben was Merck, Bayer, BASF, Hoechst, and Co) But go ahead and buy all their manufactured wars and pandemics and their radiation and hydrocarbon technologies… they’re good for the working class…. they protect our children…

(Only if you never examine evidence contrary to what they say and never question their narratives and motives and never examine the biological impacts of all that you continue to buy and support.)

Why don’t you all now educate yourself with the reality of what you now support since you all failed your civic responsibilities to your fellow working class citizens and those destroyed abroad. Maybe if you haven’t been spending your lives drunk and entertaining yourselves… the world would have been a better place for all our children!

“I actually like Dick Cheney, for real,” Biden said at the time. “I get on with him. I think he’s a decent man.”

In early June, a group of former officials from the George W Bush administration launched a political action committee (PAC) in support of Biden’s candidacy.

“For three decades Vice President Dick Cheney conducted a secretive, behind-closed-doors campaign to give the president virtually unlimited wartime power. Finally, in the aftermath of 9/11, the Justice Department and the White House made a number of controversial legal decisions. Orchestrated by Cheney and his lawyer David Addington, the department interpreted executive power in an expansive and extraordinary way, granting President George W. Bush the power to detain, interrogate, torture, wiretap and spy — without congressional approval or judicial review”

Important book excerpts from Blitzed: Drugs in the Third Reich by Norman Ohler.

The Germans were world leaders in another class of substances as well: the companies of Merck, Boehringer, and Knoll controlled 80 percent of the global cocaine market. Merck’s cocaine, from the city of Darmstadt, was seen as the best product in the world, and commercial pirates in China printed fake Merck labels by the million. Hamburg was the major European marketplace for raw cocaine: every year thousands of pounds were imported legally through its port. Peru sold its entire annual production of raw cocaine, over five tons, almost exclusively to Germany for further processing. The influential Fachgruppe Opium and Kokain (Expert Group on Opium and Cocaine), put together by the German drug manufacturers, worked tirelessly on a close integration of the government and the pharmaceuticals industry. Two cartels, each consisting of a handful of companies, divided up between them the lucrative market “of the entire world,” the so-called cocaine convention and opiates convention. Merck was the business leader in both cases. The young Weimar Republic, swimming in consciousness-altering and intoxicating substances, delivered heroin and cocaine to the four corners of the world and rose to become a global market dealer.

A drug manufactured by Merck in Darmstadt, it came on to the market as a painkiller and cough medicine in 1917, and was so popular in the 1920s that the word “Eukodalism” was coined. Its extremely potent active ingredient is an opioid called oxycodone, synthesized from the raw material of opium. The substance was a hot topic among doctors in the Weimar Republic because many physicians quietly took the narcotic themselves. In specialist circles Eukodal was the queen of remedies: a wonder drug. Almost twice as pain-relieving as morphine, which it replaced in popularity, this archetypal designer opioid was characterized by its potential to create very swiftly a euphoric state significantly higher than that of heroin, its pharmacological cousin. Used properly, Eukodal did not make the patient tired or knock him out—quite the contrary….

I see the architecture of our destruction.. and the chief architects even if you are completely blind! Capitalism and its government systems do nothing to protect you. The capitalist ruling class are rich destroying working class and global health to enrich their pockets at your expense and ignorance. And because the American public seem incapable of learning foreign policy lessons….

I will post this again in the hope that people will take the time and educate themselves. You’ll notice Exxon does not control our media…..

“In war, the first casualty is truth.” – Aeschylus

NARRATOR: Clark Hoyt was Knight Ridder’s Washington editor during the run-up to the war in Iraq.

CLARK HOYT: What we were hearing, from very good sources, was really nothing has changed with Iraq.

NARRATOR: But as they continued their skeptical reporting, Hoyt says they began to feel heat from the government.

CLARK HOYT: Someone in the Defense Department called our reporter a communistic Bolshevik. Others said, “You know, all you guys have in this town is your reputation and your credibility, and we’re going to get you. We’re going to get that.”

San Jose Mercury, September 7, 2002: “LACK OF STRONG EVIDENCE CLASHES WITH WHITE HOUSE WARNINGS”

CLARK HOYT: I will say, at times, it seemed very lonely because you kept looking around and saying, “Where’s everybody else?”

You should be very angry but instead you cheer for these mass murdering child destroying Fascists! Sorry to burst your “climate change” bubble but munitions (aka Big Pharma) is not in the top 20 at all?!!! They destroy environments for multiple generations and have caused mass extinctions and utilize petroleum as their building blocks…. (From those petroleum resources in Iraq)

Their hydrocarbon and radiation munition technologies are not as destructive to the environment as their benzene supply companies?

“Camp Lejeune, in Jacksonville, North Carolina, is a toxic paradox, a place where young men and women were poisoned while in the service of their nation. They swore to defend this land, and the land made them sick. And there are hundreds of Camp Lejeunes across the country, military sites contaminated with all manner of pollutants, from chemical weapon graveyards to vast groundwater deposits of gasoline. Soldiers know they might be felled by a sniper’s bullet in Baghdad or a roadside bomb in the gullies of Afghanistan. They might even expect it. But waterborne carcinogens are not an enemy whose ambush they prepare for. That toxic enemy is far more prevalent than most American suspect, not to mention far more intractable.

That the Department of Defense is the world’s worst polluter is a refrain one often hears from environmentalists, who have long-standing, unsurprising gripes with the military-industrial complex.

But politics aside, the greenies have a convincing point. Dive into the numbers, as I did, and the Pentagon starts to make Koch Industries look like an organic farm.

In size alone, the Department of Defense dwarfs the footprint of any corporation: 4,127 installations spread across 19 million acres of American soil. Maureen Sullivan, who heads the Pentagon’s environmental programs, told me her office must contend with 39,000 contaminated sites (to be fair, a single base can have several, some as small as a single building).

Camp Lejeune is one of the Department of Defense’s 141 Superfund sites; that’s about 10 percent of all Superfund sites, easily topping any other polluter. And if the definition is broadened out beyond proprietary Pentagon installations, then about 900 of the 1,200 or so Superfund sites in the United States are “abandoned military facilities or facilities that produced materials and products for or otherwise supported military needs,” according to a presidential panel on cancer. (The presidential panel on cancer has been scrubbed. All links I used to utilize are no longer available…)

“Almost every military site in this country is seriously contaminated,” said John D. Dingell, a soon-to-retire Michigan congressman who served in World War II. “Lejeune is one of many.”

Sadly, they’ve been faithful to the wrong class and work for the very people destroying the health of all our children.

“Semper Fi: Always Faithful” Official Trailer

Sadly, the scientifically illiterate don’t seem to understand why this data set is so horrifying in the CDC’s annual death data report.

The leading cause of infant mortality is congenital malformations! Second is low birth weight and we who actually study the complexity of our biological and environmental systems understand that is what should be headline news!

Our children deserve truth about what the ruling class and the enabling generations have done before to create the conditions that destroy their health today. They inherited a mess through mass collective ignorance and greed. Our global children deserve a real army protecting their health from those who profit destroying them. We could have built the most remarkable civilization that enriched us all because life is so beautiful in all its remarkable complexity. Heaven is here but they’re going to make it further hell for them instead.

Autism, birth defects, cancer, degenerative diseases, nutritional starvation, emotional starvation, rape, physical abuse, neglect, and enslavement are all the direct result of the human created system and culture designed by our scientifically illiterate psychopathic ruling class and all made possible by the support of the collective working class. Our taxes subsidized munitions and manufactured wars not the development of healthy communities and healthy children. Our children deserve so much better than this! I’ve taught my children that teachers can come in many forms..

Trees work together… “the community must remain intact no matter what. If every tree were looking out only for itself, then quite a few of them would never reach old age. Regular fatalities would result in many large gaps in the tree canopy, which would make it easier for storms to get inside the forest and uproot more trees. The heat of summer would reach the forest floor and dry out. Every tree would suffer. Every tree, therefore, is valuable to the community and worth keeping around as long as possible. And that is why even sick individuals are supported and nourished until they recover.” ~ The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben (Page 4)

Trees learned the importance of community work and caring for each other hundreds of millions of years ago and they didn’t even need a brain to figure it out. I can breathe among trees and they are such comfort with all that oxygen they produce. Being around them clears my thoughts. I have great difficulty being around humans these days.

They are the most barbaric and unnatural species known to nature because of their acceptance in sacrificing our children’s health by embracing the unhealthy cultural systems, munition technologies, and irrational fears created by our ruling class psychopaths. Secure our children’s future! Stop letting our ruling class drive our economic and government systems. They and their political puppets are destroying all our collective health. Listen to the wisdom of the trees. They’ve been around a lot longer than us. Our ruling class and their political puppets and systems are the storm and if we don’t unite and actively work against them… we will all perish

Capitalist ruling class systems and their political puppets and systems are not your protectors and they never will be. Your taxes build the systems and technologies that destroy working class health and enrich their pockets not yours.

Posting this in loving memory of Jason Johnson. (World’s best euchre partner and dear friend)

Jason was born with a cleft palate. The organochlorine munition technology responsible for that birth defect has precision sniper fire during fetal development. Most are unaware that that particular munition’s sniper fire also often hits other developing organs at the same time. It also struck his wonderful heart. Jason dropped dead of a heart attack while walking across campus. He was only 21-years-old and never got the opportunity to teach his own science class. He was my TA in my Elements of Earth Science class and he befriended me after my fall from grace at our small Lutheran University in River Forest, IL. It’s a hard social fall when you reject the church you were raised in and call off an engagement to one of the most popular men on campus. Jason softened my landing. Playing cards and catch in the courtyard while talking about science and life with Jason made life beautiful again. I didn’t like his favorite music but I tolerated listening to it because his company was what I appreciated more.

“Get out of here! Transfer to the University of Iowa and don’t be afraid. Don’t even be afraid of dying. Study the stars and learn about the world and its history. You’ve already outgrown this small minded place. The university is large but your mind is even bigger than that place because it’s opened wide,” he said. I listened to his wise advice. Jason’s life was struck painfully short. So very thankful that Jason was my dear friend. Friends like Jason make you stronger. I wish he were still here. I am sober and wide awake now, dear friend. I am so very thankful that his voice is still in my mind guiding me through my life. The people I have loved and been loved by have shaped me more than any human created institution. I’ve discovered that the same ruling class capitalists destroying our working class biological health are the ones that also control and destroy the institutions that should be explaining their technologies and systems that destroy our collective health. Our taxes fill their pockets and not the victims of their systems and technologies…

I know he would love knowing that I occasionally listen to Tool because it reminds me of him. I refused to not “rot in an apathetic existence.” I know Jason would be proud of all that I’ve learned.

Those who have cleft palates need to make certain that their hearts are healthy and strong. Infants born with cleft palates only have their hearts checked if they hear something that indicates that something is wrong. It is essential that Infants born with cleft palates have a thorough examination of their hearts as they grow. In a literate working class controlled world, we would not design our habitat systems that mass produce the organochlorine munition technology causes of the defects in the first place. We don’t even need these technologies or our capital ruling class parasites and their community destroying systems either.

An excerpt from Poisoned Profits: The Toxic Assault on Our Children by Philip Shabecoff and Alice Shabecoff.

“The small city of Dickson is in the middle of Tennessee, but it could be anywhere in America… (or our world)

Not God’s Fault

The attending physician kept up a cheerful, reassuring stream of talk as he assisted Jenny in her Labor. “Peyton came facedown. When Dr. Booker turned him over, he stopped talking,” Judy recalled. “He had his back to us, but when the nurse gave him a shove, he turned around and had tears running down his cheeks.”

The baby’s face was badly disfigured with a cleft lip and a bilateral cleft palate. And though they did not know it immediately, Peyton also had a damaged heart., a valve that failed to close properly. “I had never seen this defect except after it had been fixed,” Judy said of Peyton’s cleft palate. “My heart was in my throat. My husband walked into the room and put his arm around me, and we went into the hall. The first thing I said was, ‘Why would God do this to me, as much as I love children and worked with them all my life? Why would he do this?’ My husband said, “Honey, this is not God’s fault.’

“ Two weeks after Peyton was born, Jenny was given the name of another mother in Dickson whose child, born a couple months earlier, also had a cleft palate. Then a woman called Judy at her daycare center and asked if she could accommodate children with special needs because ultrasound tests found that her child was about to be born with a cleft palate. “That made three,” Judy said. She and the other mothers kept a tally. Soon they counted six. Judy placed a newspaper advertisement asking families with similar defects to contact her. And, as it turned out, nineteen children had been born in Dickson with a cleft lip and palate in a little over two years. The odds against such a series of identical birth defects were almost certainly too high to be coincidental. In a city the size of Dickson, perhaps as many as two cases of bilateral cleft lip and palate might be expected in the same period. Clearly, something was happening.

Cleft palates were not the only ills afflicting Dickson’s children. Within a brief period, four babies were born with a rare brain malformation, where the two hemispheres of the brain are not connected. There have been a large number of cases of hypospadias, a condition in male children where the urethra is inverted. There also has been a high incidence of heart problems in Dickson babies, as well as childhood leukemia, the families reported.

“When I realized how many children had defects, I called the Dickson County Health Department,” Judy said. “The registered nurse there said, ‘We’ll bring this up and call you back.’ They never did. I’m still waiting six years later. Then I called the Centers for Disease Control [and Prevention (CDC)] in Atlanta, but they said, ‘This isn’t what we do.’ ” Finally, on the advice of a public health official in Nashville, she contacted Betty Mekdeci, who runs a nonprofit organization in Orlando, Florida, that monitors birth defects around the nation. Mekdeci told her that there were as many babies with cleft palates born in Dickson during that period as in the entire state of Wisconsin and nine times the national average. Following Mekdeci’s advice, Judy got a map of Dickson County and put an “X” down to mark the location of each family with a cleft palate baby. What she found was surprising. Most of the families lived in the southwest quadrant of the county, where Dickson County landfill is located.

The landfill had opened in 1968 as the Dickson City dump. A decade later, the county brought the property and expanded it for use as a sanitary landfill; though the Tennessee Department of Public Health found the area suitable for use as a sanitary landfill, it recommended that no liquid wastes be disposed of there. Nevertheless, the landfill too began accepting industrial liquid wastes from manufacturing facilities in the area, including Scoville-Schrader, Inc., which made automotive parts. It would be another ten years, however, before tests were conducted to determine if water beneath and around the fill was contaminated, and then only after a nearby resident contacted the county to voice suspicion that a spring on her property might be contaminated.

It was. Tests conducted by private contractors working for the county and state, and later the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), found that a brew of chemicals from the landfill had made its way to the groundwater under the dump and was spreading out through the karst rock, a geological foundation riddled with countless cracks, that underlies much of Dickson County. The pollutants included toxic chemicals such as benzene, toluene, xylene, and most ubiquitously, trichloroethylene (TCE), an industrial solvent widely used for degreasing machine parts and in the production of other chemicals. TCE had been heavily used and then dumped in the landfill and elsewhere by the Scoville-Schrader plant and other manufacturers in the area, Judy Code and other residents said. TCE is known or suspected of causing a number of chronic illnesses, including several forms of cancer and birth defects. There is evidence that it can be a specific cause of cleft palates, although the available data is limited.

Dumping and Denial

By 1975, the Tennessee Department of Public Health said that no more liquid wastes should be disposed of in the landfill, but Scovill continued to dump “trailer loads” of liquids into the facility, according to local residents. Residents told Judy Cude about the barrels carted away by private contractors and buried on farms in the area. One worker confessed to her, “I buried this shit all over the county.” Lynn Agee, a lawyer representing several of the families in lawsuits against Scovill, said that discovery had produced substantial documentation of dumping….

While there were fluctuations, test after test revealed high levels of TCE and other toxic contaminants in the water, including in wells use by families for drinking and bathing and in at least one well that fed Dickson’s public water supply….

Scovill-Schrader pulled up stakes and moved to North Carolina in 1984, resuming a company history of leaving a community and its workers when local conditions proved unpleasant… Don Corn, a UAW official in Tennesse, contends that “Schrader left the Dickson plant because the heat was on. The state environmental agencies were starting to look into their habits, and they were running out of space to put their industrial waste.” Confirming what Judy Cude had heard, Corn adds, “They filled up the area behind their plant and the county landfill and even contracted out to private firms to bury the TCE. Once the cat was out of the bag, many barrels were dug up and hauled to Emelle, Alabama.” – Poisoned Profits: The Toxic Assault on Our Children by Philip Shabecoff and Alice Shabecoff

Drinking water supplies for 14 million Americans are contaminated with a cancer-causing industrial solvent made notorious by the book and film “A Civil Action,” according to a new EWG analysis of tests from public utilities nationwide. The chemical is trichloroethylene, or TCE.

Most citizens are familiar TCE and W.R. Grace from this film

“A Civil Action is a film based on the true story of a group of families in a small town just north of Boston who sued major US companies in the early 1980s for leukemia deaths and other health problems caused by the dumping of poisonous chemicals that seeped into their community’s water supply. It is also the story of Boston lawyer Jan Schlichtmann, the unlikely hero who took up their cause.

The history of the legal case mounted by residents of Woburn, Massachusetts against chemical giant W.R. Grace and consumer goods conglomerate Beatrice Foods was chronicled in the 500-page 1995 bestseller of the same title written by Jonathon Harr. Twelve children contracted leukemia in the town of 36,000 from the late 1960s to the early ’80s. Of these, eight lived within a half-mile radius of each other and six lived in one east Woburn neighborhood of just 200 families. Cancer deaths in town during the mid-1970s increased by 17 percent.

A new water well had been opened in 1964 near an industrial park. Despite residents’ complaints of “foul, ill-smelling water,” the city refused to shut it down until 1979. Trichloroethylene (TCE) was later found in the well water. In 1979 a half-buried lagoon polluted with toxic chemicals was also discovered, contaminated with arsenic, chromium, lead and animal wastes.”

But few know that Otto Ambros, Hitler’s Director of Chemical Weapons and IG Farben’s Director of Chemical Operations, and J. Peter Grace worked collaboratively. J. Peter Grace worked to protect Ambros repeatedly and the two shared the same business practices of destroying their workers and the communities where their businesses were located as they expanded their munition technology markets.

“Concerning the firms abroad where I am a permanent co-worker advisor,” Ambros wrote, “I won’t name them [publicly] because I don’t want to tip off any journalists who might cause trouble with my friends. You know about W.R. Grace in New York… and I hope I can stay with Hibernia Company.

Concerning the firms in Israel,” Ambros wrote, “stating their names publicly would be very embarrassing because they are [run by] very public, well-respected persons in public positions that have actually been at my home and are aware of my position, how I behaved during the Reich, and they accept this.”

(Keep in mind that these monsters didn’t even use anesthesia when they completed liver biopsies on death camp victims in their research)

The “well-respected” public figures in Israel to whom Ambros referred have never been revealed. That Ambros also had worked for the American company W.R Grace would take decades to come to light. When it did, in the early 1980s, the public would also learn that Otto Ambros worked as a consultant for the U.S. Department of Energy, formerly the Atomic Energy Commission, “to develop and operate a plant for the hydrogenation of coal in a scale of 4 million tons/year at the former IG Farben industry.” That a convicted war criminal had been hired by the Department of Energy sparked indignation, and congressmen and journalists sought further details about Ambros’s U.S. government contract. In a statement to the press, the Department of Energy insisted that the paperwork had been lost…” – Operation Paperclip by Annie Jacobson (page 418.)

Sadly, no capitalist ruling class controlled institution will provide the truth about the biological destruction of their munition technologies and systems created by working class taxes and designed to destroy working class health and profit off that destruction.

A Civil Action Trailer

“Workers exposed to tricholorethylene (TCE), a chemical once widely used to clean metal such as auto parts, may be at a significantly higher risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, according to a study released today that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 62nd Annual Meeting in Toronto April 10 to April 17, 2010.”

Those long hot showers in communities with TCE water contamination have elevated risks for Parkinson’s disease and much more as well. Many tap water supplies are contaminated with over the health based limit (based on ingestion exposure) for Trichloroethylene.

Inhalation and dermal exposures are not factored into the health based limit. A ten-minute shower or thirty-minute bath contributed a greater internal dose than drinking half a gallon of tap water. http://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/docs/1996/104-1/weiselabs.html

Intolerance by Tool

A working class that accepts the munition sniper fire of our children’s epigenome and rejects learning the science that explain the destruction of our children’s development for capital ruling class profits have empty minds and hearts and cease having souls… they are willing participants in the extinction of our species!

Our children deserve far better

Once upon a time I called myself an artist. I’ve learned much through books. I’ve learned the importance of looking far beneath the surface to understand life and the world I live in. There’s so much more beauty in complexity than only examining skin and it provides far more understanding.

An excerpt from “Your Inner Fish” by Neil Shubin – 2008

HANDY GENES

We begin with an apparent puzzle. Our body is made up of hundreds of different kinds of cells. This cellular diversity gives our tissues and organs their distinct shapes and functions. The cells that make our bones, nerves, guts, and so on look and behave entirely differently. Despite these differences, there is a deep similarity among every cell inside our bodies: all of them contain exactly the same DNA. If DNA contains the information to build our bodies, tissues, and organs, how is it that cells as different as those found in muscle, nerve, and bone contain the same DNA?

The answer lies in understanding what pieces of DNA (the genes) are actually turned on in every cell. A skin cell is different from a neuron because different genes are active in each cell. When a gene is turned on, it makes a protein that can affect what the cell looks like and how it behaves. Therefore, to understand what makes a cell in the eye different from a cell in the bones of the hand, we need to know about the genetic switches that control the activity of genes in each cell and tissue.

Here’s an important fact: these genetic switches help to assemble us. At conception, we start as a single cell that contains all the DNA needed to build our body. The plan for that entire body unfolds via instructions contained in this single microscopic cell. To go from this generalized egg cell to a complete human, with trillions of specialized cells organized in just the right way, whole batteries of genes need to be turned on and off at just the right stages of development. Like a concerto composed of individual notes played by many instruments, our bodies are a composition of individual genes turning on and off inside each cell during our development…

When we compare the ensemble of genes active in the development of a fish fin to those active in the development of a human hand, we can catalogue the genetic differences between fins and limbs. This kind of comparison gives us some likely culprits–the genetic switches that may have changed during the origin of limbs. We can then study what these genes are doing in the embryo and how they might have changed. We can even do experiments in which we manipulate the genes to see how bodies actually change in response to different conditions or stimuli…..We will begin by looking at the structure of our limbs, and zoom all the way down to the tissues, cells, and genes that make it.

MAKING HANDS

Our limbs exist in three dimensions: they have a top and a bottom, a pinky side and a thumb side, a base and a tip. The bones at the tips, in our fingers, are different from the bones at our shoulder. Likewise, our hands are different from one side to the other. Our pinkies are shaped differently from one side to the other. The Holy Grail of our developmental research is to understand what genes differentiate the various bones of our limb, and what controls development in these three dimensions. What DNA actually makes a pinky different from a thumb? What makes our fingers distinct from our arm bones? If we understand the genes that control such patterns, we will be privy to the recipe that builds us.

All the genetic switches that make our fingers, arm bones, and toes do their thing during the third to eighth week after conception. Limbs begin their development as tiny buds that extend from our embryonic bodies. The buds grow over two weeks, until the tip forms a paddle. Inside this paddle are millions of cells which will ultimately give rise to the skeleton, nerves, and muscles that we’ll have for the rest of our lives.

To study how this pattern emerges, we need to look at embryos and sometimes interfere with their development to assess what happens when things go wrong. Moreover, we need to look at mutants and at their internal structures and genes, often by making whole mutant populations through careful breeding. Obviously, we cannot study humans in these ways. The challenge for the pioneers in this field was to find the animals that could be useful windows into our own development. The first experimental embryologists interested in limbs in the 1930s and 1940s faced several problems. They needed an organism in which the limbs were accessible for observation and experiment. The embryo had to be relatively large, so that they could perform surgical procedures on it. Importantly, the embryo had to grow in a protected place, in a container that sheltered it from jostling and other environmental disturbances. Also, and critically, the embryos had to be abundant and available year-round. the obvious solution to this scientific need is at your local grocery store: chicken eggs.

In the 1950s and 1960s a number of biologists, including Edgar Zwilling and John Saunders, did extraordinary creative experiments on chicken eggs to understand how the pattern of the skeleton forms. This was an era of slice and dice. Embryos were cut up and various tissues moved about to see what effect this had on development. The approach involved very careful microsurgery, manipulating patches of tissue no more than a millimeter think. In that way, by moving tissues about in the developing limb, Saunders and Zwilling uncovered some of the key mechanisms that build limbs as different as bird wings, whale flippers, and human hands.

They discovered that two little patches of tissue essentially control the development of the pattern of bones inside limbs. A strip of tissue at the extreme end of the limb bud is essential for all limb development. Remove it, and development stops. Remove it early, and we are left with only an upper arm, or a piece of an arm. Remove it slightly later, and we end up with an upper arm and a forearm. Remove it even later, and the arm is almost complete, except that the digits are short and deformed.

Another experiment, initially done by Mary Gasseling in John Saunder’s laboratory, led to a powerful new line of research. Take a little patch of tissue from what will become the pinky side of a limb bud, early in development, and transplant it on the opposite side, just under where the first finger will form. Let the chick develop and form a wing. The result surprised nearly everybody. The wing developed normally except that it also had a full duplicate set of digits. Even more remarkable was the pattern of the digits: the new fingers were mirror images of the normal set. Obviously, something inside that patch of tissue, some molecule or gene, was able to direct the development of the pattern of the fingers. This result spawned a blizzard of new experiments, and we learned that this effect can be mimicked by a variety of other means. For example, take a chicken embryo and dab a little vitamin A (retinoic acid) on its limb bud, or simply inject vitamin A into the egg. and let the embryo develop. If you supply the vitamin A at the right concentration and at the right stage, you’ll get the same mirror-image duplication that Gasseling, Saunders, and Zwilling got from the grafting experiments. This patch of tissue was named the zone of polarizing activity (ZPA). Essentially, the ZPA is a patch of tissue that causes the pinky side to be different from the thumb side. Obviously chicks do not have a pinky and a thumb. The terminology we use is to the number of digits, with our pinky corresponding to digit five of other animals and our thumb corresponding to digit one.

The ZPA drew interest because it appeared, in some way, to control the formation of fingers and toes. But how? Some people believed that the cells in the ZPA made a molecule that then spread across the limb to instruct cells to make different fingers. The key proposal was that it was the concentration of this named molecule that was the important factor. In areas close to the ZPA, where there is a high concentration of this molecule, cells would respond by making a pinky. In the opposite side of the developing hand, farther from the ZPA so that the molecule was more diffused, the cells would respond by making a thumb. Cells in the middle would each respond according to the concentration of this molecule to make the second, third, and fourth fingers.

This concentration-dependent idea could be tested. In 1979, Denis Summerbell placed an extremely small piece of foil between the ZPA patch and the rest of the limb. The idea was to use this barrier to prevent any kind of molecule from diffusing from the ZPA to the other side. Summerbell studied what happened to the cells on each side of the barrier. Cells on the opposite side often did not form digits; if they did, the digits were badly malformed. The conclusion was obvious. Something was emanating from the ZPA that controlled how the digits formed and what they looked like. To identify that something, researchers needed to look at DNA.

THE DNA RECIPE

That project was left to a new generation of scientists. Not until the 1990s, when new molecular techniques became available, was the genetic control for the ZPA’s operation unraveled.

A major breakthrough happened in 1993, when Cliff Tabin’s laboratory at Harvard started hunting for the genes that control the ZPA. Their prey was the molecular mechanisms that gave the ZPA its ability to make our pinky different from our thumb. By this time his group started to work in the early 1990s, a number of experiments like the ones I’ve described had led us to believe that some sort of molecule caused the whole thing. This was a grand theory, but nobody knew what this molecule was. People would propose one molecule after another, only to find that none was up to the job. Finally, the Tabin lab came up with a novel notion, and one very relevant to the theme of this book. Look to flies for the answer.

Genetic experiments in the 1980s had revealed the wonderful pattern of gene activity that sculpts the body of a fly from a single-celled egg. The body of a fruit fly is organized from front to back, with the head at the front and the wings at the back. Whole batteries of genes are turned on and off during fly development, and this pattern of gene activity serves to demarcate the different regions of the fly.

Tabin didn’t know at the time, but two other laboratories–those of Andy MacMahon and Phil Ingham–had already come up with the same general idea independently. What emerged was a remarkably successful collaboration among three different lab groups. One of the fly genes caught the attention of Tabin, McMahon, and Ingham. They noted that this gene made one end of a body segment look different from the other. Fly geneticists named it hedgehog. Doesn’t the function of hedgehog in the fly body–to make one region different from another–sound like what ZPA does in making the pinky different from the thumb? That parallel was not lost on the three labs. So off they went, looking for a hedgehog gene in creatures like chickens, mice, and fish.

Because the lab groups knew the structure of the fly’s hedgehog gene, that had a search image to help them single out the gene in chickens. Each gene sequence; using a number of molecular tools, the researchers could scan a chicken’s DNA for the hedgehog sequence. After a lot of trial and error, they found a chicken hedgehog gene.

Just as paleontologists get to name a new species, geneticists get to name new genes. The fly geneticists who discovered hedgehog had named it that because the flies with a mutation in the gene had bristles that reminded them of a little hedgehog. Tabin, McMahon, and Ingham named the chicken version of the gene Sonic hedgehog, after the Sega Genesis video game.

Now came the fun question: What does Sonic hedgehog actually do in the limb? The Tabin group attached a dye to a molecule that would stick to the gene, enabling them to visualize where the gene is active in the limb. To their great surprise, they found that only cells in a tiny patch of the limb had gene activity: the ZPA.

So the next steps were obvious. The patterns of activity in the Sonic hedgehog gene could mimic those of the ZPA tissue itself. Recall when you treat the limb with retinoic acid, a form of vitamin A, you get a ZPA active on the opposite side. Guess what happens when you treat a limb with retinoic acid, then map where Sonic hedgehog is active? Sonic hedgehog is active on both sides–pinky and thumb–just as the ZPA does when it is treated with retinoic acid.

Knowing the structure of the chicken Sonic hedgehog gave other researchers the tools to look for it in everything else that has fingers, from frogs to humans. Every limbed animal has the Sonic hedgehog gene. And in every single animal we have studied, Sonic hedgehog is active in ZPA tissue. If Sonic hedgehog hadn’t turned on properly during the eight week of your own development, then you either would have extra fingers or your pinky and thumb would look alike. Occasionally, when things go wrong with Sonic hedgehog, the hand ends up looking like a broad paddle with as many as twelve fingers that all look alike.

We now know that Sonic hedgehog is one of dozens of genes that act to sculpt our limbs from shoulder to fingertip by turning on and off at the right time. Remarkably, work in chickens, frogs, and mice was telling us the same thing. The DNA recipe to build upper arms, forearms, wrists, and digits is virtually identical in every creature that has limbs.

How far back can we trace Sonic hedgehog and other bits of DNA that build limbs? Is this stuff active in building the skeleton of fish fins? Or are hands genetically completely different from fish fins? We saw an inner fish in the anatomy of our arms and hands. What about the DNA that builds it? ….”
