US began radiological warfare program in the 1950’s (USA Today 10/8/07)
EXCERPT: “In one of the longest-held secrets of the Cold War, the U.S. Army explored the potential for using radioactive poisons to assassinate “important individuals” such as military or civilian leaders, according to newly declassified documents obtained by the Associated Press. Approved at the highest levels of the Army in 1948, the effort was a well-hidden part of the military’s pursuit of a “new concept of warfare” using radioactive materials from atomic bombmaking to contaminate swaths of enemy land or to target military bases, factories or troop formations. The top priorities listed were: 1 — Weapons to contaminate “populated or otherwise critical areas for long periods of time.” 2 — Munitions combining high explosives with radioactive material “to accomplish physical damage and radioactive contamination simultaneously.” 3 — Air and-or surface weapons that would spread contamination across an area to be evacuated, thereby rendering it unusable by enemy forces. The stated goal was to produce a prototype for the No. 1 and No. 2 priority weapons by Dec. 31, 1950. The 4th ranked priority was “munitions for attack on individuals” using radioactive agents for which there is “no means of therapy.”

Processed Meats Too Dangerous For Human Consumption (Total Health Breakthroughs 12/7/07)
EXCERPT: “The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has just completed a detailed review of more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer. Its conclusion is rocking the health world with startling bluntness: Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption. Consumers should stop buying and eating all processed meat products for the rest of their lives. A 2005 University of Hawaii study found that processed meats increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67 percent. Another study revealed that every 50 grams of processed meat consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 50 percent. These are alarming numbers. Note that these cancer risks do not come from eating fresh, non-processed meats. They only appear in people who regularly consume processed meat products containing sodium nitrite. You can protect yourself and your family from the dangers of processed meats by following a few simple rules: 1) Always read ingredient labels. 2) Don’t buy anything made with sodium nitrite or monosodium glutamate. 3) Don’t eat red meats served by restaurants, schools, hospitals, hotels or other institutions. 4) And finally, eat more fresh produce with every meal. There is evidence that natural vitamin C found in citrus fruits and exotic berries (like camu camu) helps prevent the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines, protecting you from the devastating health effects of sodium nitrite in processed meats. The best defense, of course, is to avoid eating processed meats altogether.
