Here's Ed!!!!!!!!

We've all been disturbed concerning the tragic news of untimely deaths this week. Michael Jackson and Farah Fawcett.

But did anyone notice Ed McMahon died earlier this week, a more normal death, and has been given little attention? By the way, did you know he was a decorated Marine fighter pilot in WWII as well as the Korean War? I'd say that should have made headlines over all the "other" hoopla. Sorry, folks, I do struggle with our value system.

We Are Celebrity Junkies, For Sure.
Do you ever question why? Do we not have enough to do with our time? Do we not have enough heroes and heroines in our own lives to applaud and be interested in? Think about it.

But on a little different note...

What's The Healthy Side?
The following article was sent to me by a friend, and it seemed appropriate to share on this forum. We are looking to find ways to be well, not temporary chronic solutions for our illnesses, are we not? With that as a backdrop, it makes healthy sense to look into alternatives.

While I may not agree with every alternative available, I would be foolish to dismiss the possibilities of finding other ways to be well. Other ways than completely trusting my life to legal toxic drugs given by the medical industry. Notice, I said completely.

Up front, I do believe we need doctors. I just don't believe it's wise to blindly deliver our lives into the hands of an industry that is proving it's more about treating symptoms than providing cures. Wake up, America!

NaturalNews Reports
That Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett both died in the last 8 hours is shocking news to many, but it's not nearly as surprising as the fact that they were both killed by Big Pharma's toxic drugs.

Michael Jackson, we now know, died from an injection of Demerol given by his doctor -- a man who is now the subject of an LAPD manhunt. There is little question that the injection of Demerol -- a potent pharmaceutical -- caused Jackson's death. Chalk it up to yet another tragic loss of a hugely inspiring artist who has become a victim of the pharmaceutical industry and overzealous medical doctors.

Demerol, by the way, is a highly-potent opioid drug that's also highly addictive. And yet it's being prescribed (and injected) by doctors with the full support of the FDA, the pharmaceutical industry and the conventional medical community. It is nothing less than amazing that mild drugs like marijuana remain outlawed while potentially deadly painkiller drugs like Demerol are openly injected into people by doctors.

Farrah Fawcett's death was far less sudden than Jackson's, but no less innocent. She was killed by chemotherapy -- a toxic cocktail of chemicals pushed onto patients by oncologists who deceptively call it "treatment."

Against the advice of many in the natural health community, Fawcett gave in to her doctors and agreed to be poisoned as a treatment for anal cancer. But what she didn't know is that one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy is more cancer! And after subjecting her body to more chemotherapy, it wasn't long before Fawcett was diagnosed with liver cancer. (Chemotherapy causes terrible harm to the liver, heart, kidneys and brain...)

Before long, her suppressed immune system and ongoing poison treatments overcame her body's natural healing ability, and she died (as yet another victim of chemotherapy). Her doctors, of course, claim she "died of cancer." Clever huh?

Cancer doctors operate with that sort of clever deception: If the cancer goes away, they claim the patient was "treated by the medicine," but if the patient dies, they claim "the cancer killed them." It's pretty easy to claim success if you take credit for the wins while fleeing the any responsibility for the losses.

Back to Farrah, while many of her friends and supporters say her battle with cancer was "an inspiration," let me be the first to publicly state that to me, poisoning yourself with toxic chemicals is NOT inspiring, no matter how much suffering you go through. I do not believe that people should be given special recognition for pain and suffering they consciously choose to inflict upon themselves, especially when all that suffering is easily avoidable. It would have been far more "inspiring" for Farrah to choose healing remedies instead of deadly poisons.

Had she chosen natural remedies, she could have skipped all the pain and suffering, restored her immune function, reversed her cancer and gone on to live a much longer and more abundant life. (It would have saved her a small fortune in medical costs, too...)

But she didn't choose natural health (nutrition, vitamin D, immune support, superfoods and medicinal herbs). Instead, she chose poison. As a result, her decision to ravage her body's health through "slash and burn" medicine ultimately cost more than her body could afford to pay.

Keeping the public in the dark
What's especially sad about all this is that the conventional medical trade groups, the drug companies and the FDA are all conspiring to keep consumers ignorant of natural cancer remedies. So Farrah Fawcett almost certainly did not have easy access to the kind of information about natural remedies that could have saved her life. She would have had to read NaturalNews or other good sources of truthful information about natural solutions for cancer like Gerson Therapy (www.Gerson.org).

But this is all by design: Truthful information about natural remedies for cancer is intentionally oppressed by the medical establishment. Those who dare to offer health products with accurate descriptions about their anti-cancer attributes are threatened with arrest and imprisonment by the FDA and FTC (http://www.naturalnews.com/024246_cancer_the_FTC_cancer_industry.html...). The very best doctors who can really cure cancer have been either thrown in prison or run out of the country (which is why all the best cancer clinics in the world aren't located in the United States).

The medical industrial complex, in other words, has conspired to keep the American people uninformed and diseased, making them dependent on the for-profit medical system that dominates modern medicine. That Farrah Fawcett actually made a conscious decision to allow her body to be destroyed by chemotherapy is an indication of just how insidious and manipulative our conventional medical system really is.

Instead of giving patients options, it limits their options and gives them death. Instead of educating patients about how to prevent and reverse cancer, our medical system de-educates patients and seeks to isolate them from knowledge of natural remedies. Instead of empowering patients, it seeks to control and profit from patients. It is a failed system that kills celebrities just as mercilessly as it kills those who aren't famous at all.

And unless we change our approach to healing cancer, more people will continue to die as victims of dangerous prescription drugs and failed chemotherapy "treatments."

Because whether you're famous or not, chemotherapy is still poison.

My Thoughts:
This is by no means a slam on FF and MJ. They both provided a wealth of entertainment and talent since the 70s. I grew up with them. I enjoyed watching them as much as anyone.

While I understand MJ's pain from having an abusive father (those are the accusations), many of you have had similar stories and worse, but you didn't choose to go the route he did. He did choose.

I lost respect when he was repeatedly in trouble for making young boys his unhealthy attraction. He needed therapy, and he chose not to spend his money on mental health. I can over look a lot of things with celebrities and their vices, but not this one. I just can't. If Joe Smith down the street had this issue, we would paint neon signs around his house saying, "Keep Away, Child Molester". Let's not have a double standard. Let's call it for what it is.

MJ had problems and needed help. But he clearly had the control to do as he pleased. He made it crystal from the words he left on his album, "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my

I don't need to speak for Farah's life, it speaks for itself. Concerning NN's article: While I agree with most of it, I would say that I do believe she did begin to search for alternatives to cure her cancer, but was a little too late.

I, like NN, don't see her dying videos as overwhelmingly inspirational. Maybe she did do them to help others. Only God knows that and whether the ones around her were truly in it for the purest of reasons. I would hope so. But inspiration for me is found right in our own neighborhoods, our churches, our schools, our communities. Let's begin to look there first.
