Top 10 Most Important Health Freedom Stories of 2011
December 20, 2011
By Anthony Gucciardi
“This is a great list. It seems more and more people are beginning to know the truth about health freedom. When reports come out that pharmaceutical drugs cause more death than traffic accidents, how could that not wake up the people?”
2011 was an amazing year for the health freedom movement, with monumental victories against Monsanto, Merck and money-hungry pharmaceutical corporations as a whole.
As the year comes to a close, it is important to look back on some of the most important stories that helped to propel the natural health movement into the mainstream spotlight.
More than just listing the articles, you will receive an inside look into each story — from the true importance and depth of the story to the reciprocation and possible spin by the mainstream media.
1. Monsanto Declared Worst Company of 2011
The impact of this story is not solely based on the profound anti-Monsanto content that it holds. Instead, the real importance of this story — and the fact that it is the #1 most important story of 2011 — is due to the fact that it was carried by Reuters, Yahoo News, and thousands of other major publications. It was seen by millions browsing the news, searching Google, and seeing the latest Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube posts on the subject. Yahoo News alone receives 74 million visitors on average each day. This article, published to the mainstream media in the form of a press release, brought Monsanto’s assault against the environment and public health to the spotlight of the masses.
Monsanto was certainly not happy to see this controversial article go up on top publications and rack up around 198,000 results on Google alone.
2. Pharmaceutical Drug Deaths Now Outnumber Traffic Fatalities in US
Killing at least 37,485 people nationwide, pharmaceutical drug deaths now exceed traffic-related fatalities according to statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This information is shocking at face value, but it is even more explosive when you examine the depth of the subject. In fact, pharmaceuticals are actually breeding illness . . . then more pharmaceuticals are prescribed to ‘treat’ the generated illness. These pharmaceuticals then lead to further harm, and this cycle continues for the entire life of many individuals stuck in this paradigm.
Antibiotics are causing a diminished immune system through permanently depleting gut flora, creating obesity, mental illness, and much more. Antidepressants are actually leading to more suicidal thoughts and depression. Is it any wonder pharmaceuticals are killing more people than traffic accidents?
3. Hungary Destroys All Monsanto GMO Corn Fields
Generating over 220,000 shares, making it the 10th most shared article of 2011, this explosive report has made waves around the Internet that have outdone mainstream outlets such as Huffington Post and CNN. Complimenting the success of Monsanto’s Worst Company of 2011 Award, the article reached hundreds of thousands of readers and highlighted the powerful resistance to Monsanto that is being seen worldwide. The huge amount of shares that this article generated has also allowed for even mainstream media readers to get a glimpse of the truth, with this anti-Monsanto article informing and empowering readers across the globe.
Looking back, this article will be a major part of the anti-Monsanto revolution that helped bring awareness and support to the cause.
4. Government Ignored 1998 Report Finding up to 100 Cancer Deaths from TSA Naked Body Scanners Per Year
The TSA has been asserting the safety and usefulness of their privacy-invading X-ray scanners in the face of public outrage for far too long. The TSA, and the United States government as a whole, actually knew in 1998 that these scanners were giving you cancer, yet they were still approved to be used in airports across the nation! Keep in mind that the 100 annual deaths estimated by the radiation experts in the report are not only conservative, but they were based on the experimental X-ray scanners that actually had somewhat regulated radiation output.
Current scanners have been found to put out 10 times the radiation they are supposed to, frying you with radiation in order to invade your privacy. This article is the 4th most important, as it is all that is truly needed to put an end to TSA naked body scanners. It shows that the government blatantly ignored the warnings of renown radiation experts, deploying these DNA-damaging scanners with zero concern for public health.
