Fearless investigative journalists Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber (Toxic Sludge Is Good for You! and Mad Cow U.S.A.) are back with a gripping exposé of the public relations industry and the scientists who back their business-funded, anti-consumer-safety agendas. There are two kinds of "experts" in question--the PR spin doctors behind the scenes and the "independent" experts paraded before the public, scientists who have been hand-selected, cultivated, and paid handsomely to promote the views of corporations involved in controversial actions. Lively writing on controversial topics such as dioxin, bovine growth hormone, and genetically modified food makes this a real page-turner, shocking in its portrayal of the real and potential dangers in each of these technological innovations and of the "media pseudo-environment" created to obfuscate the risks. By financing and publicizing views that support the goals of corporate sponsors, PR campaigns have, over the course of the century, managed to suppress the dangers of lead poisoning for decades, silence the scientist who discovered that rats fed on genetically modified corn had significant organ abnormalities and squelch television and newspaper stories about the risks of bovine growth hormone
WE BECOME SILENT
A Film by KEVIN P. MILLER
International award-winning filmmaker Kevin P. Miller unveils the worldwide threat to medical freedom of choice in a new blockbuster documentary, WE BECOME SILENT:The Last Days of Health Freedom.
WE BECOME SILENT details the ongoing attempts by multinational pharmaceutical interests, giant food companies, and government agencies to limit the public’s access to vitamins, herbs and other therapies. The film highlights the U.S. government’s complicity in suppressing the truth about the effectiveness of alternative/complementary medicines, and outlines the international plan to eliminate freedom of choice in healthcare through the work of the Codex Alimentarius Commission.
Narrated by Dame Judi Dench, the noted UK actress who has won multiple Golden Globe awards and dozens of other honors throughout her prestigious career, WE BECOME SILENT is a powerful statement about the dominance of multinational corporations over personal freedoms. This 28-minute film describes the ominous bureaucratic shadow being cast by Codex, in concert with the World Trade Organization and others — and the challenges consumers face in trying to maintain freedom of choice in health care.
WE BECOME SILENT features the only known video from a Codex meeting, exclusive interviews with delegates to the Codex Alimentarius Commission, U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials, two U.S. Congressmen, actor Mel Gibson, and consumer health activists from across the globe.
This accessible study about the collusion between medical science and the drug industry emphasizes how drug companies market their products by either redefining problems as diseases or redefining a condition to encompass a greater percentage of the population. Moynihan, a health journalist for the New England Journal of Medicine and the Lancet, and Cassels, a Canadian science writer, note, for instance, that eight of the nine specialists who wrote the 2004 federal guideline on high cholesterol, which substantially increased the number of people in that category, have multiple financial ties to drug manufacturers. Physicians now routinely prescribe cholesterol-lowering pills (statins) that may have perilous side effects, when many people could lower their risk of heart attack with less costly and dangerous steps, such as exercise and improved diet. Through aggressive merchandising, funding of medical conferences and expensive perks, drug companies win doctors over to diagnosing these "diseases" and prescribing drugs for them.
You Have Been Lied To. Misled. Deceived For Nearly 100 Years.Like millions of others you probably believe that the food you eat is safe and nutritious. You probably believe that the medicines you take have been sufficiently tested. Not so. Shockingly, the opposite is true.
Consider these facts that the chemical, pharmaceutical and food processing industries desperately want to keep from you—but revealed exclusively in The Hundred Year Lie:
1,000 new chemicals are added to our “diet” yearly
There are more than 700 synthetic chemicals in our bodies
100,000 man-made chemicals exist in our environment
The food industry purposely strips out essential nutrients from our food
The known side affects of drugs are often worse than the disease they are meant to treat
Our immune and reproductive systems are so compromised that disease, birth anomalies, and species mutations are rampant!
So, How Healthy Do You Feel?Many of us are overwhelmed by mystery illnesses, obesity and fatigue. Human beings—and the earth, herself—aren’t able to absorb the toxic soup we’re being served.
