ASPARTAME-how-fake-sugar-got-approved-is-scary-as-hell=neurological functions, brain tumors, seizures, headaches, non-Hodgkin lymphomas and multiple myeloma in men

THE FDA COVER UPAny routine internet search produces initial articles claiming artificial sweeteners are safe

In 1996, John Olney, a professor of pathology and immunology at Washington University Medical School, claimed to have found epidemiological evidence that the introduction of aspartame in the US was connected to an increase in an aggressive form of brain tumor called glioblastomas. But this was criticized for just being a correlation and dismissed by the FDA.

Many of those Searle studies that Gross questioned are now lumped into the data that says aspartame is safe. And though the question of aspartame causing brain tumors has largely been dismissed over the years, there hasn’t been much new data on the subject. In fact, a 1987 General Accounting Office report states that 28 out of 69 scientists said more research was needed in the areas of “neurological functions, brain tumors, seizures, headaches, and adverse effects on children and pregnant women.” Nonetheless, the report added, research was ongoing in all areas except brain tumors. What’s more, the FDA dissuaded the National Toxicology Program (NTP) from doing further cancer research on aspartame. As the founder of the NTP, David Rall, put it, “It’s a wonderful way to ensure that it isn’t tested—discourage the testing group from testing it and then say it’s safe.”

A longterm study in humans found a positive association between aspartame intake and risks for non-Hodgkin lymphomas and multiple myeloma in men, and leukemia in both men and women.

Thank you for posting that interview.

Thankfully, my balky internet connection maintained itself for the whole thing.

He gave Mr. Armstrong room to roam, and roam he did!.

 

Thanks, treefrog

That was funny. It reminded me a little of a Jerry Lewis scene were he was trying to control powerful hose breaking windows and knocking people over, amongst other things that happened. Least it wasn’t gunk through but the poor older lady her dog and fish and fireplace soot at the same time. Guess I correction busy right now U know the real Jerry Lewis.

Mr. Copper – Pretty Damn funny

Poor Harold

More brawn than brains, apparently.  My first instinct would be to shut OFF the pump.   Harold?  “Go wrestle the beast!”

Off Topic Entertainment Harrold’s Cesspool Truck Story

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 15:04 on February 27, 2021  

My son’s friend Harold is over one night. He’s big strong and built like a bulldozer. Lifts weights all the time, mid 30’s age.

His father used to work for a plumbing company, pumping out cesspools, so Harold knew something about it, and after exaggerating his knowledge, he gets a job pumping cesspools.

He was very new on the job when they sent him to a fancy multi story office complex to pump out the pool. It was a big one.

Anyway, he sticks that big fat hose into the “stuff”, turns on the pump, and nothing is getting sucked up, stuff is too dense, so he goes full throttle on the pump and the suction is still not enough.

So he radios back to the office, tells them he’s having a problem, and he thinks they should send someone else with more experience.

The boss says….”It’s no problem. Just reverse the pump. Put some of the “stuff” that’s already in the truck, into the pool to soften it up, dilute it a little, jiggle the hose around, and THEN you can suck it out.

So Harold has the hose draped into the pool, and he’s near the truck, throws the pump into reverse, and he knew right away he made a mistake by the sound of the pump as it reversed, at full throttle.

He glances out towards the pool, about 50 feet away, and what does he see? The damn hose he said, came completely out of the pool, like a big fat snake, pointing into the air, and was whipping back and forth, and spewing nasty smelly “stuff” all over the place.

He panics, runs over, tackles the hose like he’s playing football, and manages to get it back into the pool, but he hasn’t got any more strength, and has to let it go.

Back up into the air again, throwing stuff all over the place. People are yelling at him out the windows. They’re cursing at him. The stuff is going all over everybody’s cars, and is four inches deep in the parking lot.

Can you imagine this? What about all the fresh air intakes on the cars. So he finally shuts down the pump. He was covered head to toe in stuff. It was even in the back of his hooded sweatshirt.

He removed all his clothing except his shorts, and drove back to the office. He told the boss. “You don’t have to fire me, I’ll quit.” 🙂

===========================

PS on the job story about Harold, “Tommy The Landlord”

So anyway, I tell this story to Tommy the “body guy. (He’s the best auto body mechanic, looks like Willie Nelson, pig tail and all, neat guy, know him for decades works in a back yard barn)

He can’t stop laughing, and it reminds him of a story to tell me.

He used to rent a big huge three story Herman Munster type house back in the hippie days. It had a big barn in back, where he did body work.

He also used to rent out rooms to others to keep costs down. Seems that all the toilets are backed up, all THREE stories. He goes down into the cellar, and looks for a spot to snake it out.

He sees what looks like big threaded “end cap”. He puts a big wrench on it, and the second he gave it the slightest bit of a turn, the cap popped off,

and SWOOOSH, right in his face. All three stories of you know what. He wore it. 🙂

Then he notices the cap wasn’t threaded at all. It was just a big lead plug, and that’s why it popped right out. 🙂

 

 

Good Morning Buygold

Those companies all seem to be making the big bucks with POG here. Seems they could afford to pay some of that out in bigger dividends. Should see some smaller cos eaten up soon.

“Hope this trashing ends soon” You got that right Brother!

Morning Ipso Re: Goldseeker article

Posted by Buygold @ 10:19 on February 27, 2021  

That’s a good article. The companies highlighted all seemed to have good AISC’s and production numbers. I own some of them, not all, but most I guess.

The one that sticks out to me is BTG for a smaller company. Hard to believe that stock is $4. Course, hard to believe the HUI is 250 with the metals where the are and energy prices where they are.

Hope this trashing ends soon.

jeffers vet supply is on the web, also valley vet supply.  jeffers snailmail is p. o. box 100, dothan alabama.

alternatively, if you are near a farming area, the local feed store probably has ivermectin injectable for cattle or swine – various brands.  a 50 ml vial of 1% ivermectin sterile solution costs about thirty bucks at our local farm and ranch supply.

1% works out to 10 mg per ml.  while you’re at the feed store, get a small (easier to measure small amounts) syringe to pull it from the vial – handy way to measure with pretty good accuracy.  dosage levels can be found on the web.  i have been using it on my dogs for years to prevent internal (worms) and external (fleas, ticks, etc) parasites.  i use one ml per 100 pounds of dog.  (a 15 pound dachshund gets 0.15 ml – orally – monthly.  i draw the dose from the vial using the syringe with a needle, remove the needle and squirt the syringe down the dog’s throat.)  it’s probably unwise for me to give medical advice about humans, but you’re a grownup, you can probably figure it out on your own.

if you clean up everything before and after with a cotton ball soaked in isopropyl alc. everything stays sterile.  squirt a little iso through the syringe and needle too.  i keep everything in a clean ziplock bag.

I have no clue what happens in the copper market. Honestly, I don’t really follow it, sorry to say. I suppose if copper gets hammered when shorts get heavy in the copper market, things would make sense. Also, lumber has been exploding higher, have we seen the scum enter that market?

I can’t make sense of much of anything anymore old man. Sorry,

Interesting … copper has developed a sizable commercial short position as well. Got to wonder if that’s a deliberate plan to hold down the price … or if it’s copper miners trying to lock in the high copper prices.

Here’s your COT Report

Looks pretty good as of Tuesday, and I’m sure a lot better as of today, but still today was pretty damn ugly.

Yep Tiger did have a worse week than us … but at least his crash was accidental while ours was a deliberate attack. Damn the scum!

Cheers and have a great weekend!

You listed a source for Ivermectin a while back.  Could you refresh my memory?  TIA.

Pretty crappy day in Mudville. Got to hope next week’s better.

Re your “We were the first ones to escape !!!!!”

Right escaped in 1776. Then you guys (London bankers) absorbed us after 1900. Fed Res act 1913, the beginning of the end of US independence.

I agree 100 plus years ago before 1900, we were all better off. But 1913 was the start of academia’s new funny money Boom Bust agenda, that financed various wars, moon landings, GPS and inflation etc etc.

To me the 1913 smart ass banker agenda all came to a head in 2008, because the global powers “doing their thing” pissed off the wrong people and in 2001 and they blew up the World Trade Center. A real iron clad sucker punch.

Right in the kisser to world global citizens and global business unfettered activities in other peoples countries.  So its all very simple, the system is punch drunk? Stumbling, ready to fall, a slow motion knock out punch.
