9/11 – Mission Accomplished……

11 Sep

It’s now been 17 years since 19 hijackers boarded four commercial aircraft, flying one into the Pentagon, one into each of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre and one into a field in Pensilvania. That’s still the official version and despite increasing public dissatisfaction and mounting evidence to the contrary, they’re sticking to it……’

Conspiracy Theorists have, apparently, cobbled together their own version of what they think happened. Unfortunately, due to some of the more ridiculous conspiracy theories on the World Wide Web, many completely unrelated to 9/11, the tightly controlled ‘free press’ label any ‘conspiracy theorist’ a deluded crackpot; insinuating that any challenge made to the official story is some ludicrous concoction dreamt up by crazy people, (which admittedly some are). However, there are large groups of professionals including pilots, physicists, engineers, ex-military/CIA/NSA operatives, architects, demolition experts and hundreds of thousands of others with the ability to reason, who are neither ‘crackpots’, ‘crazy’ or ‘deluded’ and have perfectly valid questions. If you’re obsessive enough and cross check details applying the scientific method I can say with 100 percent certainty is that the official story is simply not true. When FOI requests or questions are asked, no explanation is given, are hidden for ‘security purposes’, though it’s never clear whose security, or dismissed under the ‘conspiracy theorist’ banner. History is, however, littered with documented, proven False Flag ‘terrorist’ attacks such as the burning of the Reichstag building, attributed to an unemployed Dutch brick layer who just happened to be nearby and used by Hitler’s propaganda machine as proof of a Communist threat to push through draconian legislation. Sound familiar? Google ‘False Flag terrorist attacks’ and you’ll find hundreds of examples (Mostly executed by the U.S.)…

Small things add up, or don’t. For example, in the immediate aftermath Bush, Rice, Cheney and many other top officials all publicly stated that they had absolutely no incline ‘terrorists’ might use commercial aircraft as flying suicide bombs and that they had “no warnings”. Both statements which have been proven to be untrue. They ran scenarios where planes were used, even featuring an image of the WTC in crosshairs on the cover of one such ‘war game’ document and a model of the Pentagon in another. Several agents from the seemingly endless Defence Department offshoots provided evidence that they were tracking some of the alleged hijackers but were blocked from above (a possible scenario is the ‘patsy’ hijackers were operatives being manipulated into thinking they were taking part in an exercise or real Jihadi terrorist but both under the control of …..?) The 9/11 Commission Report failed to mention where the funding for such an operation came from, claiming it was “of little practical significance” despite a wire transfer of $100,000 being made to Mohamed Atta, the lead hijacker, by the head of the Pakistani Intelligence Service, the I.S.I. only 24hrs before the ‘attacks’. And the report made no mention of WTC Building 7 whatsoever? It is a little known fact that most footage of 9/11 has never been shown on US TV since that day; apparently the public found it too distressing. And in all probability so that some of the infamous quotes made by TV anchors were forgotten, eg: “Anyone who has ever seen a building brought down by controlled demolition knows that to make it to happen you first have to get to the underlying structure”. Another stating that “We heard multiple explosions just before
the tower fell and we ran for our lives”. G. W. Bush once claimed to have seen the first tower hit when it was shown to him after he finished his story. There is only one known piece of footage that only came to light 24hrs later. I could go on…

Larry Silverstein the lease holder of the entire WTC complex re-evaluated his insurance policy in the months prior to 9/11, not only massively increasing the value of the policy but also including a ‘terrorism’ clause should anything untoward happen. He hit the jackpot on 9/11, claiming each event as a separate attack and receiving a double payout. He also made some very odd statements when being interviewed afterwards, which I’ll cover in the next paragraph. Several people were warned not to fly and profits gained from ‘put’ options on United and American Airlines stock value falling (which was trading at 5 times the average daily levels), are still sitting in German banks, unclaimed…

WTC Building 7 also known as the Solomon Brothers Building is seen by many as the ‘smoking gun’ of 9/11. Building 7 was a 47 story steel framed skyscraper which stood one blrck to the north of the main WTC complex. Alone it would have been the tallest building in 33 States. Finished in 1983 it contained; The Emergency Management Centre (‘Giuliani’s Bunker’, unused on 9/11), the Securities & Exchange Commission, the field offices of both the CIA & FBI, & others. Security was tight & access restricted. Unbelievably, a large percentage of US citizens didn’t even know it collapsed on the afternoon of 9/11 approximately 5 hours after the Twin Towers and which was strangely reported 20 minutes before it happened by news anchors in New York whilst still pictured standing in full view of the cameras. It was at that moment that channels lost their satellite links. It underwent a global collapse at near free fall speed straight through its own centre, ending up in a pile, outer walls folded inwards causing no damage to buildings on the other side of the street even though buildings closer to ‘ground zero’ suffered much more damage and survived. Which brings me back to Mr Silverstein. In interview he said, “There had already been such terrible loss of life that the decision was made to ‘pull it’ [WTC 7], so that’s what we did”. ‘Pull it’ is a phrase almost exclusively used by demolition experts. It may not be absolute proof of prior knowledge but as has been pointed out if the decision was taken to pull it, then the preparations had to have been made months in advance, not in 5 hours. WTC 7 was not hit by an aircraft and had a few small fires on several floors but nothing which could explain a synchronised global collapse…

WTC 7 Undergoing Global Collapse

You Can’t Argue with Science unless you happen to be one of the Government owned/funded labs, who all came to the same miraculous conclusions regarding the whys & hows of 9/11. There is simply too much evidence to cover in this article but there are basic pieces of secondary school Newtonian Mechanics that should tell you something simply doesn’t add up. Let’s take ‘pancake theory’ as it became known. This is where one of the Towers, weakened by stress from fires, gave way after only 50 minutes & fell onto the floor below initiating the global collapse, all the way to the ground, floor by floor encountering more than 70 plus completely undamaged floors on the way. Even if this were remotely possible apply Newton’s 3rd law which simplified says “every action has an equal & opposite reaction”. So, as the floor above hits the floor below, the lower floor pushes up in response to being pushed down. Now, even if there was enough energy to sustain this ‘pancake effect’, there would have been a considerable delay as each floor dissipated it’s upward energy. Times this by 70 plus floors and factor in a unrealistically tiny 0.5 second delay per floor and the towers would have taken over 35 seconds to collapse. They collapsed in 12/14 seconds; the same time it would take a billiard ball with only wind resistance to fall the same distance. Plus as Newton discovered in his orchard, Gravity pulls at 90 degrees perpendicular to the Earth and cannot explain how 30 ton sections of steel were thrown 200-400 feet laterally. In the entire history of skyscrapers only three have ever collapsed due to fire; WTC Buildings 1,2 & 7. Skyscrapers have burnt for over 24 hours before & still never collapsed…

On the day of 9/11 I, like millions of others, watched it ‘live’. The very first thing to strike me as odd was the almost ‘Roadrunner’ nature of the hole left by the first plane. There it was, a cardboard cutout of an aircraft, wingtip to wingtip, engines and all. Now, I don’t mean to scare regular air travellers but planes are actually pretty flimsy. We’re told that they hit at almost 500 mph. When an Aluminium aircraft hits massive steel I beams set at 17 inch centres, there is no way the wing tips will destroy the steel beams. If you watch the footage in very slow motion the outline seems to appear as the jet fuel burns off. Turn Newton’s 3rd law on it’s head and imagine swinging one single I beam at a stationary aircrafts wing at 500mph. Would you be left with an intact wing & broken I beam or visa versa..?

The evidence is out there regardless of how secretive the establishment remain. Professor Stephen Jones of BYU has produced indisputable evidence of the presence of Nano-Thermate, a military grade explosive, in the toxic dust (See images at top).  It is fine enough to be added to paint and won’t explode until an ignition source is used. Architects & Engineers for 9/11 truth (2000 of them) dispute the official narrative & Pilots for 9/11 truth (again numbering in the thousands) including Top Gun & Commercial Pilots say the manoeuvres were simply impossible; aptly demonstrated in a flight simulator by John Lear of Learjet fame, who tried and failed to hit the targets hundreds of times, succeeding only once..?

All of this information is available online and on YouTube. Ask questions and demand answers…

9/11 was effectively part of a conspiracy that led to War Crimes and it’s time someone paid for their actions…

This article is dedicated to all of those directly affected on the day. The heroes involved in the clean up, whose deaths now outnumber those killed in the Towers due to lung disease as a result of toxic dust. The Soldiers who died fighting phoney wars and the millions of dead and displaced nameless families from far away places……

21st Century Slavery……

2 Mar

‘Reach for the history books and they’ll tell you that slavery was abolished in the UK by the Slave Trade Act of 1807, driven by the unstoppable will-power of William Wilberforce. Well, almost……’

 William Wilberforce (1759-1833)

William Wilberforce (1759-1833)

The Slave Trade Act of 1807 simply outlawed the transportation of slaves. It wasn’t until 1833 that the Slavery Abolition Act was passed; making the owning, buying or selling of slaves illegal. It is not a coincidence that 26 years separated the two acts. Most of the Parliamentarians of the day had slaves and given life expectancy most had exploited the full potential from the slaves they owned. So, what’s changed…..?

 

First we need to define precisely what a ‘slave’ is. There’s the meaning we all take for granted, of people imprisoned against their will, transported to ‘the colonies’ and forced to work for a ‘master’; all enforced by extreme brutality and violence metred out to anybody who didn’t tow the line. It is now part of our shameful past but still happens all over the world to this day.

There are other definitions which have more congruity with our lives today. The Oxford English Dictionary contains several. Here are the ones that are pertinent to this article:

  1. A person who works hard without proper remuneration or appreciation.
  2. A person who is completely dependent upon, or controlled by something.
  3. A state of subjection.

Anybody who is a member of the plebeian proletariat, which is me and most of the people I know, falls into one, two or all three of the definitions given above. Here’s why.

greedy-bankersThe Joseph Rowntree Foundation estimates that a single person with no dependents requires an income of £16,300p/y, after deductions, to meet their basic needs. No holidays, cars or HDTVs included; just survival. Therefore, you are a slave to your employer, who holds you in subjection by the necessity to survive. Worse still, that employer probably doesn’t even come close to meeting those basic needs, leaving many people dependent upon the Government for Tax Credits; which is effectively another way of admitting that British employers pay too little for you to survive, further enslaving you to the State. To add insult to injury many of those employers manage to ‘avoid’ paying taxes to HMRC……

Having taken into account your own position the chances are that you fit the definition of a slave, only the ball and chain has been replaced by the threat of withholding essential income.

Ball and ChainThis form of modern slavery is a very clever device which causes apathy amongst huge groups in society who apostatise issues they hold dear for fear of disenfranchisement by the State upon which they depend for their survival……

It is my personal belief that this ideology is not accidental. Only the other day two more MPs fell prey to a press sting where they told us how they could influence policy and trade ‘under the radar’, and how this was excellent value at £8K per day; more than an unemployed person is paid yearly. If it was 1715 instead of 2015 I dare say we would have adopted the French model and separate MPs heads from their bodies, but it’s a carefully built house of cards and the distraction of survival along with the threat of ‘Jihady John’, ISIS/ISL/IS, global warming and the astutely constructed financial instability from which they protect us, keeps the vassal status quo.

 

The basic fact is that we are enslaved by a system from which we are unable to escape, with the exception of Ray Mears and maybe Bear Grylls. The nepotism, quid pro quo and control of the ruling elite keeps us firmly in our place; slaves who keep the cabal in positions of power and wealth through meaningless elections. You are most probably a modern slave……

Emancipation anybody…..?

Eight Simple Ways for the Treasury to Save Money……

17 Jun

Introduction……

We are not broke, we do not need to tighten our belts and we are certainly not ‘all in this together’.  Immigration and welfare benefits are not the drain on the economy our politicians continually claim; they are just an easy target to divert attention and act as a smokescreen to the reality of our economic position.

Here are eight ways to emancipate billions of pounds back into the economy……

1 – IT Projects……

Government IT projects are notorious.  They frequently do not perform the function for which they were designed, go over budget and are delivered late, if at all.  Those that make it into public use are usually redundant within a couple of years due to their failure to be able to communicate with newer systems in other departments.

Here a just a few examples:

1980 – TAURUS was an electronic trading platform designed to make the buying and selling of stocks and shares easier.  Outcome: cancelled.  Cost: £75 million.

2002 to 2011 – Electronic Care Records; one of many NHS IT project failures.  Over nine years and despite numerous attempts to make it work, it was never launched.  Outcome: Discontinued.  Cost: £12 billion.

2008 to 2013 – Digital Media Initiative was the BBCs digital platform.  It was scrapped when it became clear that other media companies could provide services at a much lower cost to the customer.  Outcome: cancelled.  Cost: £98 million.

The Government continues with IT initiatives, the latest being the universal benefit system.  Again, it has over run and will doubtless be over budget, if it ever works at all……

2 – Public and Judicial Enquiries……

It is understandable that the relatives and victims of events like Hillsborough and Bloody Sunday want answers.  However, the Public or Judicial Enquiry has become a tool for politicians to kick issues into the long grass.  They are hugely expensive, often take years to complete and rarely deliver results.  The Hutton enquiry into the Iraq war was carefully limited in terms of what it was enquiring into.  As a result nobody faced prosecution and nobody  suffered any consequences in respect to the ‘sexed up’ document that was used as the justification for going to war.  The same is true of the enquiries into the shooting of John Charles de Menezes and Mark Duggan, or the newspaper sales man Ian Tomlinson who died after being assaulted by a Police Officer whilst walking home from work during a demonstration.  None of these cases has led to the prosecution of the Officers involved.

The Jimmy Savile case has as many as 30 enquiries currently taking place……

3 – Defense Spending……

The Department of Defense should change its name to the Department of Attack, as the last time it defended the UK was during WWII.  It is time we stopped acting under the influence of the US as the worlds’ police force and concentrated our resources on defending UK sovereign territory.  A look at a map will show that there are no threats to the UK from any of its neighbors, most of whom are our allies.  The non geographical and greatly exaggerated ‘al Qaeda’ does not warrant £57 billion per year on defense spending.  Government wastage has led to the building of redundant aircraft carriers and the replacement of the Trident nuclear deterrent, which is not wanted and unnecessary……

4 – Tax Avoidance……

It is estimated that the UK treasury is deprived of £95 billion per year due to tax avoidance.  At the same time, many of the employees of the companies involved receive benefits to support low paid jobs (more on this later).  It is interesting to note and a demonstration of Governments priorities that HMRC have a team of 300 people dedicated to tackling £95b of tax avoidance whilst the DWP has 3000 people dedicated to recovering £1b of benefit overpayments and fraudulent claims……

5 – The Monarchy……

The Queen’s household and assorted hangers on costs the UK tax payer £33.3m in 2013; a rise of £900,000 on the previous year.  Although I am a republican I feel our Queen does deserve credit where credit is due.  She is a tourist attraction, or rather her palaces are, so I don’t propose we wheel our the guillotine just yet.  However, the monarchy are independently wealthy and becomming richer by the day.  Assets such as the Duchy of Cornwall net Prince Charles tens of millions each year.  They also hold a huge private art collection thought to be priceless, all of which they aquired through a questionable hereditary lineage.  I propose that the public purse does contribute towards the Queen’s official duties but the numerous palaces, estates and country retreats should be handed to the National Trust and opened to the public thereby generating an income for their upkeep and relieving the tax payer of a large financial burden……

6 – MPs Expenses and Allowances……

Sure, MPs work a long way from home but then so do thousands of other people who pay for their own travel and expenses.  MPs are already well paid but on top of their salary claim £100m in expenses.  Some of this is for the everyday things you and I pay for out of our own pockets and some is for the second home allowance.  As already mentioned many people commute from as far away as Peterborough, Grantham and even further.  If an MPs commute is deemed reasonable they should pay for it themselves.  If a second home is needed it should be sold when the MP looses their seat to reimburse the tax payers.  Even with the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority overseeing claims, MPs are still receiving far too much money for expenses that the rest of the population are expected to pay for themselves……

7 – Diplomatic Travel……

The year is 2014, not 1914 and with technology there is little need for diplomatic travel when a simple conference call will suffice.  According to the Daily Mail a lot of ‘diplomatic’ travel is little more than an excuse for what they describe as ‘jollies’ and range from £2k to £10k depending on the destination and who is traveling.  This money does not form part of MPs expenses but comes from departmental budgets; the same budgets that have been squeezed by 25% in recent years.  It is rich to say the least to expect the UK public to ‘tighten their belts’ when MPs and Diplomats do not.  We are not ‘all in this together’……

8 – A Fair Pay Act……

It is time that laws are introduced setting out a workable minimum wage.  Not the £6.31 (21+), £5.03 (18 to 20), £3.27 (under 18) and £2.68 (apprentice); all of which are an insult when taking into account the increasing cost of living.  If you earn £6.31 per hour for 37.5 hours per week, you will barely be able to afford necessities.  This is the reason for the various Tax Credits which are paid to top up earnings to a reasonable amount.  But as mentioned earlier, many of the companies that pay minimum wages are also tax avoiders, thereby depriving the treasury twice.  Our whole economy would function better if wages were increased, Tax Credits abolished and tax avoidance curtailed……

None of this is rocket science and all perfectly achievable given the political will.  But instead of tackling the real issues of waste and poverty our representatives continually repeat the mantra of immigration and welfare reform; always being careful not to give factual details.  Immigrants pay in far more than they take out and welfare covers pensions, tax credits, child care allowances and a multitude of other benefits including universal benefits such as family allowance.  Unemployment benefits make up 1 or 2% of the welfare pie.  It is a tactic as old as democracy; divide and rule.  Whilst the arguments are focused on two vulnerable groups who have been demons, it gives the public someone to blame for the hardship they are suffering when in reality, with a little political will, this country could be £250 billion per year better off if only the pigs would pull their heads out from the trough and do the job for which they were elected……

NB: On the Radio 4 Today program (17th June) a recent survey revealed that the majority of residents believe most immigrants come to the UK to claim benefits.  It appears the political message is working……

Religious Education……

10 Jun

Religious Educating should not be ‘taught’ in our schools.  This is the 21st century, not the 19th.  Making statements of fact that are completely unsubstantiated, if not disproven by science.  We tell our kids there’s a Father Xmas and a Tooth Fairy but they’re little tricks parents play to say well done.  As soon as they develop some awareness and reasoning they forget Santa and Pester mum and Dad.

Religion is different.  It is a long term brainwashing strategy that’s worked quite adequately for a few thousand years.  Re-enforce the nice stories of Nohah then bring in the facts about God and what awaits children who don’t follow the doctrine.  Many kids like me went to Sunday School but that was the norm and it gave our parents a break.  A lot will question the validity of what they are being told and turn Atheist like me.  But some don’t.

RE has been given the title ‘Religious and Social’ education but that’s just smoke and mirrors.  When teaching other religions, questionable events in history become facts by way of veneration through time and a manuscript, of which there are hundreds of differing versions. Many of these ‘facts’ have been disproven by science, right from Genesis which God’s description of is impossible and it is only by evolving the interpretation the bible that it survived.

Stop wasting tax payers money indoctrinating children into a single minded process of thinking and replace it with physics or PE.  You wouldn’t make your kids Liberal Democrats and send them to Lib Dem schools so they leave as caring lefties with not much understanding of the Torys of Labour.  Let kids make up their own minds when they’ve been given all of the information……

Could Social Media be the Answer to Broken Politics……

28 May

‘Social Media has found missing people, contributed to the  organistion of the ‘Arab Spring’ and even deprived Simon Cowell of his predictable Xmas #1.  So, can Social Media bring down our broken and corrupt political system…….?’

FaceBook connects us all following the ‘six degrees of separation’ rule.  Friends of people who know you are friends of others who don’t but we are all pretty much connected and going ‘viral’ takes no time at all……

It would be simple to create a ‘Peoples’ Party’ and, with a little commitment from the electorate, a landslide victory could easily achieved.  UKIP get a lot of flack over their perceived racist views and it’s not hard to see why.  However, I’m pretty sure that most people who voted for them are not racist, they are simply sick and tired of politicians evasive answers; it is interesting to note that all parties have immigration and welfare at the top of their agendas, so accusing UKIP of being racist is a bit rich to say the least and consider the NHS without foreign doctors……

I am not a politician and don’t have all the answers but what I do know is Portcullis_Logothat Special Advisers (SPADS) remain when governments’ change.   As soon as the ‘Peoples’ Party’ takes power cleaning up politics could start with the dismissal of the career SPADS, who guide newly elected officials and in doing so shape policy.  Accountability under a new system freed from the ‘old boy’ networking is plausible.  The details need to be flushed out but industry financed campaigns and lobbying would be outlawed, as would the second home allowance which would be repayable upon sale of an MP’s property if voted out of office…….

This country belongs to us and there is more than enough money to pay for public services, provided we don’t waste money on questionable foreign wars, fancy lunches and chauffeur driven cars.  The time has come to take it back.

Please feel free to get in touch and maybe together we can formulate a campaign and make a difference to our broken system……

Psychotropic Snake Oil……

7 May

‘The Income of the pharmaceutical industry is huge. Much of that income comes from the drugs used to treat mental health. The chances are that at some point in your life you may be prescribed one of these drugs. If you thought that psychiatric medicine is based on sound scientific principles, think again and read on……’

 

Diagnosing Mental Health Illness……dsm5

Unlike any other area of medicine, mental health cannot be diagnosed through a blood, urine or any other scientific test. It is based on the way in which you answer the doctor’s questions and upon the way you are feeling. This is of course subjective. The range of human emotions is wide and covers the elation of child birth through to the sadness of bereavement and everything in between. In many cases there are multiple choice questionnaires, which can be found online. They contain questions such as “I feel sad”, with answers ranging from; not very often, once or twice each month, twice per week and every other day. Try one for yourself online and even if you are perfectly contented with your life you may discover that you have depression, anxiety or even bi-polar disorder (The pharmaceutical industry are often behind ‘self diagnosis’ websites in order to prompt a visit to the GP). The only other element in the diagnosis is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health (DSM), which categorises and matches your ‘symptoms’ with a known mental health disorder. With each new edition of the DSM come new diagnoses. In the DSM I, published in the 1950s, there were 106. The latest edition, DSM V, lists over 300……

 

Once you have a Diagnosis……

Before the 1950s talking therapies were the main way of treating mild to moderate mental health illness. More severe conditions such as Psychosis usually led to hospitalisation, possibly Electro-Convulsive Therapy and even surgical Lobotomy. Contemporary treatments usually involve the prescription of Psychotropic drugs. These fall into many categories but all are thought to affect Neurotransmitters, the main ones being Serotonin and Noradrenalin, although no one really knows how or why they work.

So, supposing you have suffered the bereavement of a long term partner and are feeling down, a little lost and have difficulty concentrating and sleeping. Then you are feeling what humans have felt since time immemorial, however, your doctor may well tell you that you have depression and, after a 15 or 20 minute consultation, you leave with a prescription for an antidepressant; a powerful psychotropic drug with potentially deadly side effects……

 

pills1Developing and Testing Psychotropic Drugs……

After initial laboratory tests for toxicity etc, human trials begin. They often last a maximum of eight weeks; some only four. They are only tested against a placebo and not any other drug. Providing the side effects are moderate in the test group which consists of carefully chosen, healthy people, they can be approved for public use. At this point the public become the guinea pigs, sometimes with devastating consequences……

 

Antidepressants and Suicide……

There are hundreds of well documented cases of people visiting their GP at a difficult time in their life, being prescribed antidepressants and committing suicide within days of starting their medication; remember these are powerful psychotropic drugs. But surely this would have been noticed in the trials? Not if the results are manipulated by interested parties; namely, the pharmaceutical industry that test them. Altering statistics is easy; when trialling the drug you simply leave out the question “Did this medication make you feel suicidal?” We are so used to answering multiple choice questionnaires that clever questioning can return either positive or negative answers depending on how the question was asked, that is, if it was asked at all. They may not make someone who is in perfect health feel that way but if you have been under stress and have a low mood, as in the example given earlier, they can have a far more powerful effect……

 

A Conflict of Interests……seven-pharma-logos-300x200

Any regular readers of my blog will be well aware of the close relationships that exist between industries, regulators, politics and money. It used to be called corruption; paying for politicians’ VIP days out, lobbying and making large donations to political parties. But it seems laws and ethics only apply to the likes of you and I. The pharmaceutical industries are more than happy to pay huge grants to fund research at universities; the same universities that the Psychiatrists who write favourable papers for medical journals work at. Doctors require patients and patients require diseases; diseases that require drugs to treat them. You get the point……

 

Finally……

There are some people with mental health issues that may benefit from medication, but they should be closely monitored and the cause of their distress identified and dealt with alongside medication. Unfortunately, an NHS with limited resources are not able to deliver a high enough standard of care, especially when it comes to talking therapies, so a large group of people get left on medication to numb the pain; medication whose side effects have never been tested beyond a few weeks and what long term damage they may do is an ongoing trial, one in which you may be taking part……
