17 Year Old Forced Against Her & Mother’s Will To Undergo Chemotherapy

Published

on

Are we at the point where chemotherapy is, with 100 percent certainty as life saving as claimed? Unless the answer is a definitive yes, there seems to be absolutely zero justification for forcing chemotherapy treatment on anybody who wishes to pursue an alternative method of treatment.

17 year old Cassandra C., who has Hodgkin lymphoma, has been denied in her desire to pursue alternative treatment methods when it comes to her cancer treatment. The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled, on January 8th, that Cassandra (who declined chemotherapy treatment) will be forced to undergo the treatment anyway. She cited chemotherapy’s adverse health effects as her main reason for refusing. She is currently being held in protective custody against her will at Connecticut hospital where the forced treatment will begin.

The treatment will be administered not only against Cassandra’s will, but the will of her mother as well, who fully supports her decision.

Desire To Avoid Toxicity

In Cassandra’s own words it disgusts her to have “such toxic harmful drugs” in her body and that she would like to explore alternative treatments, something that many cancer patients seem to be doing today with with what seems to be varying degrees of success. (source)

Cassandra expressed that Being forced into surgery and chemo has traumatized her, that it should be a given human right to decide what you want and don’t want for your own body.

As Greenmedinfo (where many of the studies cited in this article were found) points out, the mature minor doctrine provides for minors to give consent to medical procedures if they can show that they are mature enough to make a decision on their own.

Cassandra is one year away from being an adult, at seventeen, wouldn’t she be mature enough to make that decision? Apparently not, as the court ruled she was not fit to make that decision.

Another disturbing factor in this case is the fact that the rights of the legal guardian (her mother) were not even addressed in this case. The court citied what is known as “legislative findings of medical fact,’ this means that they whole heartedly believed that the government’s views on chemotherapy and the evidence behind its supposed “life saving” properties is completely,unequivocally, 100 percent true.

 Here is great document pointing to constitutional law titled “The Constitutional Right to Make Medical Treatment Decisions: A Tale of Two Doctrines.”

“This Article concludes that a constitutional right to protect one’s health should be consistently recognized; that the recognition of this right should not be artificially limited by excessive deference to legislative findings of medical fact; and that this right will have to be carefully balanced against the state’s real and legitimate interest in regulating the practice of medicine to protect the public.” (source)

The document also outlines how the Constitution is supposed to protect people from State enforced medical intervention:

“In 1958, in a mostly forgotten case, the Fifth Circuit sweepingly pronounced that, under the Fourteenth Amendment, “the State cannot deny to any individual the right to exercise a reasonable choice in the method of treatment of his ills.” (source)

According to Greenmed info, “The uncertainty emerges from doctrinal contradictions and court decisions that appear to affirm diametrically opposed interpretations of the 14th Amendment’s safeguards. As stated in “The Constitutional Right to Make Medical Treatment Decisions: A Tale of Two Doctrines”

“The court’s unqualified language (supporting medical freedom) may have been overly optimistic, however; nearly fifty years later, it is hardly certain whether, and to what extent, the government can interfere with individuals’ medical treatment choices” (source)

 Again, we must ask ourselves, is chemotherapy for childhood Hodgkin’s lymphoma really as live saving as commonly claimed from the medical industry? If the answer isn’t a definitive yes than something is terribly wrong here.

According to the Washington post

“The teen’s mother has said that her daughter “knows the long term effects of having chemo” and doesn’t want to put “poison” in her body. “This is her human right – her human constitutional right – to not put poison in her body. Her rights have been taken away. She has been forced to put chemo in her body right now, as we speak”

Why The Teen And Her Mother Are  Valid In Their Pursuit

This teen is far from not understanding what she is saying, even the National Cancer Institute’s data confirms what Cassandra is saying. (source)

Another factor to consider is the fact that  there is, as mentioned from a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology  a “significant long-term morbidity and mortality associated with treatment of childhood cancer, the incidence of which continues to increase long after  completion of therapy.” (source) The conclusion of the study found that those who were treated before the age of 21 had a 10.8 fold increased risk of death versus the background population.

Not long ago, University of Michigan researchers suggested that nearly one third of all cancer research published in high impact journals disclosed a conflict of interest. The study came out of the U of M Comprehensive Cancer Center. Please keep in mind that it’s not the only research centre to outline this type of thing. (source)

Another study published in the journal Clinical Oncology titled “The Contribution of Cytotoxic Chemotherapy to 5-year Survival in Adult Malignancies” shows that chemotherapy only contributes on average about 2 percent to the overall survival rate. This is probably something your doctors won’t tell you. The study concluded that:

“As the 5-year survival rate in Australia is now over 60%, it is clear that cytotoxic chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival. To justify the continued funding and availability of drugs used in cytotoxic chemotherapy, a rigorous evaluation of the cost-effectiveness and impact on quality of life is urgently required.” (source)

In the United States there are only two approved treatments for cancer – radiation and chemotherapy. Despite the fact that chemotherapy fuels cancer growth and kills the patient more quickly, nothing has changed. Despite numerous alternative treatments that are now coming to the forefront, the medical industry continues to promote and push radiation, chemotherapy and surgery as the only viable options for cancer treatment, this is simply not true.

“The reality is that the published literature on chemotherapy-treated pediatric Hodgkins lymphoma patients unequivocally points to accelerated morbidity and mortality due to the treatment itself. There is no debate on this issue within the medical research literature. So how can the Supreme Court of Connecticut force a treatment on a 17-year old that is virtually guaranteed to make her die early? Given the clear dangers of chemotherapy, there is only one sane conclusion that can be drawn from this case. The 17-year old is absolutely correct in opting out of chemotherapy, and not because of her Constitutional right to choose her own medical treatment (or her mother’s right to choose for her), but because the evidence is stacked against conventional treatment for the condition.” (source) – Sayer Ji, Founder of Greenmedinfo.com

The studies mentioned in this article are from peer-reviewed medical journals, but there is also a lot of independent research out there that has found similar results. For example, one doctor from australia determined that chemotherapy was ineffective 97 percent of the time. (source)

The list goes on and on,  but the bottom line is that this 17 year old young woman and her mother seem to be well justified in their desire to opt out of treatment, as so many cancer patients choosing to do. Natural alternatives to chemotherapy are on the rise and many people have had success with them. A study published in the International Journal of Cancer determined that “cur cumin induces cell-arrest and apoptosis in association with the inhibition of constitutively active NF-jB and STAT 3 pathways in Hodgkin’s lymphoma cells.” (source)

Alternative treatment methods are a completely different topic, and I won’t get into it here.

The study also addressed their concerns with chemotherapy as a primary method.

Some might even see this as a form of child abuse. Regardless of whether or not you think chemotherapy is the right choice, don’t you think people should at least have the right to make their own decisions?  I think it’s ridiculous, and completely insane to force anybody into chemotherapy who desires to pursue alternative treatments.

‘Google Brain’ Implants Will Allow Access To All Information Instantaneously

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    AI technology is advancing at an extremely rapid rate. It will surpass human intelligence.

  • Reflect On:

    Should we be wary of this technology and what it could potentially mean to the human species as we know it? Should we have a say in laws regarding the responsible use of AI?

As the lines between the use of technology and doing anything manually become increasingly blurred, the general public and policy makers don’t have time to consider the potential implications of too much technology, or more alarmingly, the merging of humans with AI. It’s like all of those great sci-fi movies are coming to life, right before our eyes. Some, especially those who are developing AI, are more optimistic, like Nikolas Kairinos, founder and CEO of Fountech.ai, who believes that this technology could improve our lives and completely change how we learn.

Who Needs School If Our Brains Are Computers Anyways?

During an interview with the Daily Star, Kairinos explained that he has been working on a game-changing AI to “personalize education” claiming “anyone can learn almost anything using AI.”

He believes that within the next 20 years our brainpower will be boosted with AI implants so you “won’t have to memorize anything.” Apparently, according to Kairinos, people won’t even have to bother typing any questions, as the moment the question comes to mind it will be answered via an AI implant. He believes this will result in the end of what he calls “parrot fashion” learning at schools.

While the current educational system could definitely use some work, should we be eliminating the process of learning altogether just because a chip can do it for us?

According to Fountech’s website: “For someone who doesn’t have an in-depth understanding of technology, AI may seem like an alien concept.”

“Yet, the basic crux of the term is simple – namely the ability of a computer or machine to think, learn and imitate intelligent human behavior.”

“When it comes to AI in learning, we are only just scratching the surface… we shouldn’t think that tailored learning through AI is something that we won’t see for decades.”

Instant Artificial Learning, Should We Be Wary?

You know that famous movie that captivated the world, The Matrix? Well, just in case you’re not familiar with it, here is the synopsis:

Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans’ body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix.

Many of today’s popular researchers have claimed that The Matrix is actually more like a documentary than a movie as there is so much symbolism and so many metaphors embedded within the film that pertain to our current reality as we know it.

So, when we look at AI and how it is able to self-learn, shouldn’t we all at least be wary of it? There should be regulations on such technology before it’s too late… If it isn’t already. Sure, we can’t just assume that AI is innately evil or has bad intentions or plans to takeover humanity, but if it does surpasses natural human intelligence, how can we know what it will be capable of or what it could potentially try to do?

Even Tesla founder Elon Musk expressed his concerns over the rapid advancement of AI technology in a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

To Those Who Want The Latest & Greatest

I am aware that many people will brush off these concerns and say, you are ridiculous this will never happen, or have you been watching too many sci-fi movies? Or this is just the natural advancement of the human race, get with the times. Many consumers are always after the latest and greatest gadget, people marvel at the incredibly rapid development of new technology. And, yes! It absolutely has and will continue to benefit our lives in many ways. But what happens when it advances us?

I was working for a tech company a few years ago and was having a conversation with one of the founders who was telling me about the concept of this very thing–an implantable chip that will give instant access to all of the information in the world.

I said, “I will never get that.”

He replied, “So, what will you do when we are all sitting here having a super intelligent, advanced conversation and you have nothing to add?”

And this, my friends, is how they will get you!

Implementation of tech into our lives has evolved extremely rapidly–just look at our reliance on computers, then the Internet, and now smartphones. Next up is wearable tech including smart watches and fitbits, and then it will be implants. The merging of (wo)man with AI. These things happen so swiftly and are marketed to be huge advancements to us. We should at the very least be asking these important questions.

Much Love

Prime Minister Of Iceland Calls For Prioritizing “Well-Being” Of Citizens Over GDP

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Leaders from Iceland, Scotland and New Zealand join forces to prioritize a new agenda for the well-being of the citizens of these nations.

  • Reflect On:

    For decades, most developed nations of the world have been focused solely on GDP and economic growth, but what about the well-being of the citizens?

Prime Minister of Iceland Katrin Jakobsdottir is now urging governments to prioritize sustainability and family time over obsessing about economic growth — as most developed nations seem to do.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeion and New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern have teamed up with Iceland’s PM to promote an agenda focused on “well-being.” Jakobsdottir has called for “an alternative future based on well-being and inclusive growth.”

She feels that new social indicators are needed outside of the traditional Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data.

It’s About Time

You’d think that the overall well-being of a nation, extreme regard to protecting the environment, and working towards global sustainability would be the top priorities for all nations of the Earth. However, for the most part, it is all about the economy: how can we support the economy, how can we grow the economy, how can we protect the economy? I love the following Cree Indian proverb, it fits nicely here:

“When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.”

It’s about time someone started standing up for the people and the planet, and this stance is sure to turn some heads.

 Prioritizing Mental Health

Back In August, Nicola Sturgeon of Scotland made a plea during a TED Talk for modern economies to consider mental health, childcare, parental leave and green energy.

  

“Iceland uses more antidepressants than neighboring countries,” she said. “We need to strengthen prevention [of depression], through sports and the arts.”

This is an amazing initiative put forth by leaders of these nations to do whatever it takes to support the citizens who are struggling with mental health disorders, particularly depression. They are able to see that the most important thing is not economic growth, because what difference does that make if so many people are unhappy?

She said the “well-being” initiative promoted by herself, Ms. Sturgeon and Ms. Ardern should not be seen as a gender-based backlash against populism.

“It’s very important to have all genders at the table – it affects the way you think, and then different decisions are made,” she told BBC.

Female Force?

It is interesting that the three members of this initiative are all women, and of course that fact alone will certainly turn some heads. However, this doesn’t take away from the legitimacy of their purposed agenda.

Perhaps the more nurturing side of women is what is bringing this all to the table, or just the knowledge that what we have been doing for so long is simply not working anymore. It’s time to prioritize what’s really important for each nation — the well-being of the citizens. Perhaps, if people are happier and feel more supported, they will be able to contribute more to their society, which in turn could very well increase GDP. Might as well give it a shot as we’ve got nothing left to lose at this point!

Now, let’s see if other nations’ leaders (Trump, Trudeau, ahem..) will follow suit and prioritize what’s really important.

Much Love

‘Julian Assange Could Die in Prison Without Urgent Medical Care’ – More Than 60 Doctors Warn

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    More than 60 doctors have expressed their concern that Julian Assange may die in prison, and that he is in need of urgent care.

  • Reflect On:

    Never before have we seen the massive censorship of information, combine with the massive awakening of humanity. Our collective perception of the what's happening on our world

‘National Security’ has become an umbrella term to keep information ‘classified’ not truly for national security purposes, but rather to conceal information that threatens elitist agenda’s, be it corporate, political, or financial. Usually, they’re all intertwined. President Eisenhower warned us about the “military industrial complex” and the dangers it poses, after him John F. Kennedy warned us that “there is a very grave danger than an announced need for an increased need for security, will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of censorship and concealment.” Today, secrecy is out of hand, and it’s the backbone of un-just, immoral, and inhumane actions taken by not only the American empire and the Deep State, but by powerful global elitists as well.

This is exactly why Julian Assange is where he is now, because he was publishing secrets that had no justification for concealment, secrets that show how war, terrorism, and other actions by powerful people were undertaken for other reasons, and not those (reasons) that are commonly given in the form of mainstream media. One example would be the funding and arming and in some cases, creation of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda by agencies like the CIA in order to help destabilize countries in the Middle East so the United Stats could justify an intervention, supposedly to bring ‘democracy’ and ‘restore peace’ to those countries. This type of thing is well known, which is why current democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard introduced the ‘Stop Arming Terrorist Act,’  a proposed act that would stop the U.S. government from using taxpayer dollars to directly or indirectly support groups who are allied with and supporting terrorist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda in their war to overthrow the Syrian government.

Julian Assange exposed nothing but lies and deception, and it’s truly a crime that he is not a free man, but this is the type of world we live in. A world where activists and journalists like Assange are silenced, a world where alternative independent media out lets like Collective Evolution are extremely censored and demonetized.

We are living in an ‘Orwellian’ type of time, where there is a ‘ministry of truth’ that claims to be ‘fact checking’ information when really, these organizations seem to simply be ridiculing credible information that is full of evidence and legitimate sources, simply for the purposes of, again, threatening powerful people.

Assange is a hero in this field, and those who make big leaps with regards to exposing such corruption are often vilified. Retired USAF lieutenant colonel Karen Kwiatkowski writes in an article posted at Lew Rockwell’s website that Julian Assange is receiving the same treatment as suspected terrorists while in captivity at “Her Majesty’s Prison Service” at Belmarsh, stating that he’s probably being tortured with psychotropic drugs.

The FBI, Pentagon, and CIA are “interviewing” Assange. Kwiatkowski writes:

Interviewing is the wrong word.  I’d like to say doctoring him, because it would be more accurate, except that word implies some care for a positive outcome.  Chemical Gina has her hands in this one, and we are being told that Assange is being “treated” with 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate, known as BZ. 

Not long ago, John Shipton, Julian Assange’s father, gave an interview to the Strategic Culture Foundation sharing the latest on Julian Assange and how he’s being treated, claiming that “they are murdering my son.” You can read that interview interview here.

Assange is a man who clearly knows a lot, and has information that probably goes well beyond what’s already been divulged by Wikileaks. The treatment of him and everything he is going through is horrific and heart-breaking, but not surprising. It’s truly jaw dropping and un-fathomable how such treatment and even such an arrest can in anyway be justified within the minds of anybody. And it goes to show how powerful people are capable of doing anything they want, no matter how immoral and illegal.

An article recently published in The Independent  written by Henry Vaughan states:

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could die in prison without urgent medical care, according to an open letter signed by more than 60 doctors. The medics, from the UK, Australia, Europe and Sri Lanka express “serious concerns” about 48-year-old Assange’s fitness to stand trial in the letter addressed to Priti Patel, the home secretary.He is being held in Belmarsh prison, in south-east London, ahead of a hearing in February to fight extradition to the US, where he faces 18 charges, including conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer. Assange is accused of working with former US army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to leak hundreds of thousands of classified documents.The doctors are calling for Assange to be transferred to a university teaching hospital, where he can be assessed and treated by an expert medical team.

The letter, which has also been copied to shadow home secretary Diane Abbott, says: “From a medical point of view, on the evidence currently available, we have serious concerns about Mr Assange’s fitness to stand trial in February 2020. Most importantly, it is our opinion that Mr Assange requires urgent expert medical assessment of both his physical and psychological state of health. Any medical treatment indicated should be administered in a properly equipped and expertly staffed university teaching hospital (tertiary care). Were such urgent assessment and treatment not to take place, we have real concerns, on the evidence currently available, that Mr Assange could die in prison. The medical situation is thereby urgent. There is no time to lose.”

Doctors are warning if action isn’t taken that Julian Assange may actually die.

Below is a tweet from Australian journalist and BAFTA award-winning documentary filmmaker John Pilger, who made comments last month that shed some light on how Assange is being treated.

The Takeaway

What you read here is no surprise, for a long time Julian Assange was allowed no visitors, and now, it’s quite clear why. Those who have had access to visits have made it quite clear that he is in very poor health. It’s unbelievable how the powers that be can simply do as they please, illegally, with no consequence, and their power lies within the human population and in those who have been subjected to perception manipulation, believing that Julian Assange should actually be locked up and done away with.

A great quote by Edward Bernays, who was known as the father of public relations, comes to mind here:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. (source)

The ability for this powerful group to manipulate our minds is clearly fading, and Julian Assange has been a big part of that, but we still have a lot of work to do.
