The Canary Party is a movement created to stand up for the victims of medical injury, environmental toxins and industrial foods by restoring balance to our free and civil society and empowering consumers to make health and nutrition decisions that promote wellness.
“If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” -Thomas Jefferson
[This article ran yesterday on Age Of Autism. We feel that it is such a good description, not only of those who defend the currently indefensible and corrupt vaccine program, but of all those who are attacking health freedom, natural health and emerging treatments that are not profitable to Big Pharma, Big Chem and Big Ag interests, that we thought it should be passed on to the wider Canary community.]
1. They believe there is an anti-vaccine movement.
This may surprise a lot of people, but there actually isn't
an "anti-vaccine movement”. Although there are definitely people who
believe no vaccine is a good vaccine, the controversy has never been solely
about whether or not vaccines are good or bad; it's been about whether or not
they are being used responsibly and have been properly investigated for their
role in chronic health conditions.
The more appropriate term to describe people raising this
important question would be consumer safety advocates, seeking informed
consent, more research, product liability, and policy reform.
Only a few possibilities exist to explain why those who
insist on using the "anti-vaccine" label anyway continue to do so:
they erroneously assume anyone who questions a product's safety is
automatically against it; they believe vaccines already are being used as
responsibly as they possibly can be and have been properly investigated; or
they choose to use a red herring label like "anti-vaccine" to
2. Anyone who disagrees with them is an idiot.
If the first line of attack doesn't work it will almost
always be followed by an insult. Not only are people who disagree portrayed as
dangerous lunatics who want to see the world explode in infectious disease,
supposedly they are also "flat-earthers" who can't accept the world
is round. Certain journalists have gone so far as to suggest it's no wonder
their children have problems.
Such commentary is breathtaking in its insensitivity,
entirely unnecessary, and most troublesome once again, not true. Even the CDC
has recognized for years, most recently in a study on Hepatitis B uptake, that
the most common demographic of a person who questions vaccine safety or refuses
them is a highly educated mother with a master's degree.
When faced with this unpleasant fact, anti “anti-vaxxers”
are left with little place to go. Some have started calling these parents
“superstitious”, “defenders of pseudo-science”, or
While some canaries fall silent, such as those injured by vaccines and diagnosed with autism, the warnings of other canaries can be heard loud and clear – their vocal tics and anguished stories resonating over the airwaves and in cyberspace. In recent weeks, America has been riveted by developments at Le Roy Jr./Sr. High School in upstate New York where twelve girls ages 13 to 19 began experiencing tourettes-like symptoms – the cause of which is intensely debated by medical experts.
The total number of official cases in Le Roy is now reported at 19, with 17 of them being Le Roy High School students. Two girls at Corinth High School near Albany are also affected. Symptoms began in May for the first two cases (Le Roy and Corinth). The disorder has been so debilitating for some students that they’ve given up cheerleading, athletics and even attending school. Some are now reported to have improved while others’ symptoms have worsened. Indoor air tests were initially conducted with all results coming back negative. No soil tests were commissioned.
The teens’ plight hit the national news when several families went public with their stories, followed by the Le Roy school district informing the community that the school was deemed safe by federal agencies and state medical professionals. The New York State Health Department ruled out environmental and infectious causes. But the reassurances rang hollow as information trickled in about the school’s siting on a FEMA-designated flood hazard area, rust-colored fungus on a playing field, leaking gas wells on school property, flooding problems, possible contamination from a nearby Superfund site as well as proximity to CAFOs, pesticide spraying of crops and other health
In January 2012 the
association of Registered Dieticians® (RD's), the American Dietetic Association
(ADA), rebranded itself as the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This name
change appears to be part of a comprehensive strategy to dominate the practice
of nutrition in the United States. Not only did they add the word “nutrition”
to their name, but they have long been attempting, through licensing
legislation in every state, to carve out a monopoly for themselves for the
practice of nutrition itself. Where their legislative gambit works, providers
who are not RDs (such as clinical nutritionists, and in many states
naturopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists and others) commit a crime if they
dispense dietary advice.
The ADA has already been successful in de facto monopolizing
over 20 states. They have in recent
weeks introduced new anti-competitive bills in Colorado, Virginia, California,
Indiana, New Jersey, New York, Hawaii and West Virginia.
Darrell Rogers, Communications & Campaigns Director for
the Alliance for Natural Health, explains, "At risk are thousands of jobs
that will be lost, and health practices that will be forced to close down, if
these bills pass. And, consumers will lose out, no longer having a variety of
nutrition professionals to choose from."
When the state of North Carolina passed restrictive
licensing laws last year, the successful health clinic of esteemed Ph.D.
nutritionist, Dr. Liz Lipski was forced to move out of state. Though she now
lives and works in Georgia, Dr. Lipski is still fighting for her right to
conduct business in her home state. For more information about her case, see
her website, Lizappeal.com.
It is important to note that the practice of Dietetics in
the U.S. has been greatly compromised by the influence of major corporations,
and the government. Much of their funding comes from Big Food and Big Pharma,
while most of their dietary advice adheres to the controversial
USDA dietary guidelines. Poor quality nutritional advice has been the end
Citizens concerned about health freedom and consumer choice
are being asked to contact their elected officials and protest this move to
restrain free trade in the nutrition profession.
Canaries of California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada, come to our Western Regional Conference
Come be a part of history as we launch the most ambitious effort yet aimed at restoring health freedom and scientific integrity across America.
We know we are making an impact because the push-back is stronger than ever. Consumers’ rights to choose or refuse what goes into their bodies, whether it be food or medicine, continues to erode. California’s unprecedented usurpation of parental rights by allowing youth as young as 12 to be vaccinated without parental knowledge or consent threatens to march across the nation. Practitioners providing families with alternatives to unsafe, unproven medical practices are being attacked in the courts and vilified in the media. This all-out assault, putting profits ahead of health won’t stop unlesswe take action.

My name is John Fratti. I work for the Food and Drug Administration as an FDA Patient Representative for Drug Safety. It is a paid part-time position. I am unable to work a full-time job. I have sustained injuries from being prescribed Levaquin, a fluoroquinolone antibiotic. I have documented nerve, tendon, and central nervous system damage. To give a brief background, I was a pharmaceutical sales representative for over seven years and had a master's degree. I was healthy and athletic until I was prescribed Levaquin in 2005. I haven't been the same since. I have lost over $250,000 in lost wages and another $30,000 in out of pocket medical and insurance costs. The finacial loss pales in comparison to the physical suffering that I have endured for the last six years of my life. I now have to take several strong prescription pain medications for my injuries. I never took anything prior to Levaquin.
What has happened to me and a significant number of other people from Levaquin and other fluoroquinolone antibiotics is tragic. Approximately half of the fluoroquinolone antibiotics that were once on the market have now been removed from clinical practice due to their severe toxicities. Examples include Trovan, Tequin, Omniflox, and Zagam. This antibiotic toxicity affects not only the person injured/disabled, it also affects the rest of the family. www.Antibiotics.org provides a good overview on this subject.
I made a difficult trip to the FDA to present my documentation on Levaquin toxicity. The injuries and disability from Levaquin is a cost that is being passed on from the manufacturer to the general public.
