Represented by the World Economic Forum (WEF), global corporate interests say the global economic crisis is caused by the chronic disease NCD Pandemic. They say it's sick people who are bankrupting nations, not corporate greed. And even though the evidence shows corporate industry creates the disease agents causing chronic disease, they blame the victims, insisting "people make themselves sick."

So, our planet is now riddled with disease agents created by corporate industry, up against the (noncommunicable disease) NCD Pandemic - corporate industry denies responsibility and liability, instead blaming victims for making themselves sick - governments are broke, and forced to go along with the farce.

Following the WHO summit on the NCD Pandemic in September, where the WEF presented it's report defining the NCD Pandemic as "an economic issue, not a health issue," several nations began implementing "response" actions. The most sick, the most in need and the most vulnerable are being cut loose and thrown to the wolves, or identified for future targeting. The corporations are safe.

The NCD Pandemic
Once called "diseases of civilization," chronic disease is now pandemic - the leading cause of death globally, killing more people each year than all other causes combined. One third of these deaths occur in people under 60. Chronic disease fatalities are rising rapidly in poorer nations; in the richer countries, costs are soaring to maintain survivors. Officially called "noncommunicable diseases" (NCDs), the main four are cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes and chronic lung diseases. The World Economic Forum (WEF) adds mental illness to the list, reporting that mental health, "typically left off lists of leading NCDs, will account for $16 trillion - a third of the overall $47 trillion anticipated costs." The WEF states unequivocally, "This is not a health issue, this is an economic issue."



Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading causes of death globally, killing more people each year than all other causes combined. ….

Of the 57 million deaths that occurred globally in 2008, 36 million – almost two thirds – were due to NCDs, comprising mainly cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes and chronic lung diseases. ....About one fourth of global NCD-related deaths take place before the age of 60.



NCDs have become a universal threat. They kill three in five people a year ...in 2011 ...Roughly a third will be younger than 60. Even larger numbers of people are living disabled by these illnesses.



Chronic disease to cost $47 trillion by 2030: WEF

The global economic impact of the five leading chronic diseases -- cancer, diabetes, mental illness, heart disease, and respiratory disease -- could reach $47 trillion over the next 20 years, according to a study by the World Economic Forum (WEF). ….

"This is not a health issue, this is an economic issue ….." ……

….Mental health, which is typically left off lists of leading NCDs, will account for $16 trillion -- a third of the overall $47 trillion anticipated costs.



Government Responses

Following the WHO summit on the NCD Pandemic in September, where the WEF presented it's report, several nations began implementing "response" actions. For example:

The United States - terminated its "Class Act" Long-Term Care Program.


U.S. Halts Long-Term Care Program

The Obama administration said Friday it is unable to implement a long-term care insurance program that was part of the 2010 health overhaul, effectively ending the program before it started.

The initiative, known as the Class Act, was included in the law to help Americans cover the cost of aid for daily-living needs such as bathing and using the toilet if they became unable to care for themselves.

On ATS.


Britain - passed a law to partially dismantle social programs and begin privatizing the nation's National Health Service (NHS). The main reason is that it's too costly to provide long-term care for patients with chronic diseases.



Its affordability, the increase in long-term chronic illnesses ….and the ….affordability of elderly social care are used by some to argue for the break-up of the NHS or at least for its fundamental reform.

…..The Government has made it clear that it wants the NHS to be opened up to more competition.

On ATS: NHS Privatisation Day?; NHS Bill clears major Lords hurdles.


India - took steps to make cancer a "notifiable disease," a designation normally reserved for highly infectious diseases.



The push is in the offing since the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has recommended to the Union health ministry to make cancer a "notifiable disease".

At present, highly infectious diseases like plague, polio, H5N1 bird flu or the H1N1 swine flu figure in the list. Cancer will become the first non-communicable disease (NCD) to be bracketed under the same category.

On ATS: Cancer to be a "Notifiable Disease" in India


The Next Step

On November 3 & 4, our government leaders will meet at the G20 Summit in Cannes and agree, formally, what to tell us about how they're dealing with the world's woes. The decisions already have been made in 'consultation' with global corporate leaders; the first steps already taken. Already, several nations have cut supports to the aged and other severely disabled victims of the NCD Pandemic.

What else is in the works, do ya think?

And what might the situation described below portend? ….Most people who qualify for disability benefits are approved because of mental health issues, whatever the underlying disease. Many who are disabled but don't have symptoms of mental illness are denied benefits. Why?



There was a nice older man there in a wheel chair that asked what brought me to the protest, I told him that I was skeptical of OWS and just wanted to see exactly what goes on at one of the protests. He told me ...the government has repeatedly denied him Social Security Disability even after the documentation by his doctor of his serious seizure problems…. At the same time he said that his neighbor is receiving government assistance but is perfectly healthy, the man just complains about his knee, anxiety, and anger issues.

The NCD Pandemic: The Real Causes

People are NOT making themselves sick. Most, if not all NCDs are caused by the same kind of underlying disease agent - misfolded proteins. Many corporate industries routinely create misfolded proteins, either accidentally as byproducts, or purposefully. Unfortunately, misfolded proteins can mutate, evolve and become infectious. Most, if not all chronic NCDs are associated with infectious misfolded proteins - the common disease "agent," or mechanism.


...it has always been accepted that folded protein, not the gene, directly transmits inherited information into biological activity.
**

…..in the early 1960s, Christian Anfinsen showed that the proteins actually tie themselves: If proteins become un-folded, they fold back into proper shape of their own accord; no shaper or folder is needed. …..Anfinsen’s investigation of what some call ‘the second genetic code’…..

Protein Misfolding Diseases: Current and Emerging Principles and Therapies
**

'Lifeless' Prion Proteins Are 'Capable of Evolution'


….So pick a disease, any disease, or pick an industrial activity and just track the effects. For example:



Current laws do not require the systematic screening of chemicals for their ability to cause brain damage or alter brain growth, and only about 20 percent of the 3,000 chemicals produced in high volume in the United States have been tested for developmental toxicity of any kind. The Lancet paper concludes: “The combined evidence suggests that neuro­developmental disorders caused by industrial chemicals have created a silent pandemic in modern society.”

In the basket of problems labeled neurodevelopmental disorders are a variety of cognitive and psychomotor disabilities. Mental retardation is one. Attention deficit disorder, with or without hyperactivity, is another. A third is learning disabilities, variously characterized by significant difficulties in listening, speaking, writing, memorizing, reading, or calculating. Within the life-altering category of pervasive developmental disorders is autism.

By pandemic, the Lancet study authors mean that developmental disorders are common, cut across all walks of life in all geographic regions, and are ballooning in prevalence. ….By silent, the authors mean that these disorders are subclinical. They don’t announce themselves on an X-ray or in a pathology lab. There is no medical test to herald their increasingly familiar presence among us.

Child neurodevelopmental disorders do, however, leave economic tracks behind. At $77.3 billion per school year, special education and education for disabled students, according to the most recent accounting, consume 19 percent of U.S. school spending.


Research shows misfolded proteins are commonly created by industry - in vaccine and drug manufacturing, food processing, nanotechnology and other industrial activities. As a result - infectious misfolded proteins contaminate many consumer products including food, medications and personal products - and are transmissible by ingestion or on direct exposure, at least.


A Role for Protein Misfolding in Immunogenicity of Biopharmaceuticals

…..misfolding of therapeutic proteins is an immunogenic signal and a risk factor for immunogenicity. ……Over the past decades, the use of therapeutic proteins has become common practice in medicine ……

Protein misfolding is an intrinsic and problematic property of proteins, which underlies a variety of degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer disease.
….

……biopharmaceuticals, like any other protein, …misfolding… takes place in several preparations.

….. Various Biopharmaceuticals Display Amyloid-like Properties upon Exposure to Conditions of Stress, Indicating Protein Misfolding — During manufacturing and storage, biopharmaceuticals may also become exposed to various conditions of stress that can potentially underlie protein misfolding and the formation of amyloid-like properties.

…….the innate immune system may be activated by recognition of the amyloid-like properties of misfolded protein. …

...............OP continued.....................





Biotechnology, nanotechnology, genetic engineering (GE) and genetic modification (GM) industries for example, all purposefully create misfolded porteins.



The controlled self-assembly of complex molecules into well defined hierarchical structures is a promising route for fabricating nanostructures. These nanoscale structures can be realized by naturally occurring proteins such as tobacco mosaic virus, capsid proteins, tubulin, actin, etc.


Proteins can be absorbed through the skin - including infectious misfolded proteins - or can mutate, evolve and become infectious after absorbtion.



.....Several cell types found on the human skin, including keratinocytes, fibroblasts and lymphocytes, are susceptible to the abnormal infective isoform of the prion protein, which transforms the skin to produce a potential target for prion infection.


It's an old issue.


Is Biotech Creating New Incurable Diseases Accidentally?

Even when engineered mutations do not change amino acids, they cause proteins to misfold - which can change the proteins' functions in unexpected ways. Recently released research from the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland confirms the misfolding effect, and for the first time, reports finding it in mammals. Misfolded proteins can create incurable diseases, and the phenomenon is causing renewed, but muted concern in the scientific world.

Did Chemical and Drug Industries Create Mad Cow?


In addition, ingested or inhaled industrial contaminants can cause proteins inside the body to misfold, become infectious and cause disease.

Despite the evidence showing industry's role in creating and spreading chronic disease, the official line is that protein-related diseases are genetic, or caused by diet and lifestyle: evidence of genetic inferiority or self-imposed, nothing else. Corporate-government PR claims sick people "made themselves sick" or else they're genetically inferior; if they're homeless and jobless too, that's why. The corporate-controlled mainstream media is running with the ball. Here's a particularly vitriolic bit of coverage:


What's killing us? Diseases that will kill 9 of 10 Americans

…..cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and a variety of other chronic ailments. And worse, unlike some infectious diseases, they're quite preventable.

This new, ultra-deadly pandemic threat is caused by we, ourselves. Sedentary lifestyles, poor eating habits, smoking, and other high-risk behavior causes most of these diseases. ….

More than anything, the root causes are apathy and sloth.

I have a question-If the cause of these diseases are caused by Prions then why are so many of them eliminated by diet? (I have met many people who regain their health by going Paleo or Vegan.)

Dont forget vaccines. They are for sure one of the main reasons for the huge spikes in chronic auto immune disorders, cancer and so on.

No, because she is trying to issue a blatant lie by trying to shift the focus to blame the people for being sick (through no fault of their own) and trying to protect companies who continually abuse and rape the system!

The title of the thread suggests that the blame lies with the people who are sick. That is what I responded to,

No. ...Protest against corporate greed, and know that the corporate strategy to shift the blame onto sick people is already being implemented. ...The G20 Summit on Novemeber 3 & 4 is intended to seal the deal.

I will admit I really don't have time to read the full report.

Does it say anything about the "lead poisoning" in Iraq and Afganistan ?

Oh, I quess that will be in another report due out later. It might also include something about the effects of steel on the cardiovascular system as well.

You think ?

oh don´t you people see.

it´s obvious they´re right.

because that one woman, you know, Jane Doe, the one with cancer.

yeah that one...

she´s directly responsible for directors, managers and executives receiving their multimillion dollars bonusses, on top of their humongous salary to begin with, despite their bad performances.



they´re really grasping now imho.

True - we are not powerless here. But these diseases are not eliminated - by modifying diet and lifestyle, we can sometimes remove factors that promote prion propagation. Just not the underlying prions. So any renewed or new exposure to anything that does promote prion propagation will result in a flare up.

There's a whole lot more to the story than just diet, lifestyle and genetics.

FYI - ….The thing about prions is they use your immune and nervous systems to get around the body - any trauma or infection, it's like the Internet, they're right there, adapting and mutating to infect whatever cell called out for help. ….The best treatment is to stop them from propagating - which is where anti-inflammatories come in - cinnamon, aspirin, Vitamin C and the like.

And the best prion therapeutics are mostly natural - green tea; curcumin from curry, cumin or turmeric; sage; and (unnatural) antihistamines and statins. [Note: Statins cause killer fibromyalgia in me - I won't take them. I do take benadryl and ranitidine, but they're not on the list.]

Several classes of compounds were represented in the 17 most potent inhibitors, including naturally occurring polyphenols (e.g., tannic acid and tea extracts), phenothiazines, antihistamines, statins, and antimalarial compounds. ...many are either approved human drugs or edible natural products...

the NCD are the symptoms of the relatively affluent Westerners going whole-hog on Self-Indulgence and immediate self-gratification...

sex drugs rock&roll, entertainment venues, also the left-handed sugars, excessive eating/drinking/smoking/pharmaceutical overindulgence

all these demands have caused corporations/ mega corps to sell compromised product ~ not the other way around as you portray
