Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate

Support Cigarette Smoking Reduction and Electronic Vapor Alternatives Act of 2017

We want our representatives in the US Congress and US Senate to take this issue seriously and pass this bill introduced by Congressman Duncan Hunter. The Bill Would replace current FDA Deeming Regulations and do the following 1.Vaping products will be removed from the definition of “tobacco” that is currently identified in the Tobacco Control Act. 2.As a result, the need for vaping manufacturers to undergo the expensive and time-consuming PMTA process will be eliminated and replaced with new, and less costly, approval protocols yet to be defined. An independent regulatory framework separate from Big Tobacco products will be established. 3.New standards for e-liquid and vaping technology manufacturing will also be put into place with special attention to battery safety, short circuit protection capabilities, and discharge monitoring (It is this section of the bill that is perhaps causing the most pushback). 4.Serial and lot number tracking for vaping technology will also be put into place. New vaping regulations will be enacted with a special emphasis on vaping as a tool for harm reduction for the purposes of quitting smoking. 5.The name of the Center for Tobacco Products of the FDA (currently headed by anti-vaping protagonist Mitch Zeller) will be changed to the Center for Tobacco Products and Harm Reduction. 6.The bill would also authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services (Currently Tom Price) to undertake a detailed assessment of comparative risks associated with smoking vs. vaping vs. other nicotine replacement therapies. Please Sign this Petition to let our representatives to know were serious and want the outdated laws changed immediately!. Thank you, Vape Supply Club

Petition to Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein

Wake up to the scam of the HIV/AIDS industry.

70,000,000 people are living with HIV/AIDS. 35 million people have died. That’s what we are told by the media and the medical community. Is this really true or is there something being hidden from the public? In 1981, it was said that five homosexual men had come down with the first cases of a new disease that was later called HIV/AIDS. - The question is we’re they really infected from so-called HIV/AIDS or was it really street & recreational drugs that caused their deaths?  In 1984, it was announced by our government that the “Probable Cause of AIDS” had been found. But secretly, after that announcement, the first so-called HIV blood test had been patented. - The question is was the “probable cause of AIDS” really discovered or have establishment scientists been treating the masses as fools all these years? For example, French HIV co-discoverer Luc Montagnier ADMITTED that HIV was not purified back in 1997 on French TV and American co-discoverer Dr. Robert Gallo said, in a 1998 interview, “No Evidence. Didn’t isolate virus”. [Go to http://bit.ly/2mO4KuV"] People who are allegedly HIV-positive are also often criminally prosecuted if they don’t inform their partners of their alleged HIV status. Even if they don’t believe that their status means anything. - The question is why are people being persecuted and locked up over something that MAY NOT EVEN EXIST? It is also said that the HIV antibody tests save lives by informing people that they are infected with the HIV virus. - The question is why do the HIV test manufacturers ADMIT in their package inserts that: 1) The tests (ELISA, Western Blot, OraQuick Rapid HIV-1 Antibody Test) which are used for so-called HIV diagnoses actually DO NOT diagnose people at all with HIV, 2) PCR (viral load) tests are NOT ALL INTENDED to diagnose patients with HIV & 3) Patients should follow-up with confirmatory testing, and even these tests, in their fine print, say that they cannot be used alone to diagnose people with HIV infection. The HIV tests misdiagnose patients by cross-reactions due to 70+ medical conditions that have nothing to do with HIV. It is also said that citizens that especially live in developing African, Latin American and Asian countries are more likely to contract the alleged “HIV virus”, than citizens living in developed nations, like in Europe & the Middle East. - The question is that really the case or is there something being kept from the public that they don't want us to know about? It’s time, ladies and gentlemen that the medical, pharmaceutical and charity organizations, need to be woken up on this issue. - Would Electronic microscope testing prove that HIV does not at all exist? Why is it automatically assumed by the WHO, CDC, NIH, and FDA that many Africans and other third-world citizens have “AIDS” or are “HIV+” and are then given poisonous drugs to “treat” them, instead of correcting their ACTUAL problems:    poverty hunger & starvation famine unsanitary drinking water malnutrition                                                                                                                                        Do the charity, scientific, medical and pharmaceutical industries really care about you or are they just wolves in sheep’s clothing, killing the poor and helping the rich get richer? It is time for us, as taxpaying and hard-working people to demand the truth on this issue, to hold those responsible accountable, and to ask questions that have never been asked before. Please contact your governor, senator, congressman & SPEAK UP about this issue. Inform your doctor or caretaker. It’s time to get to point out why the HIV=AIDS dogma is still a failure in 2018 and find out for ourselves why people are getting sicker than even before. Check out these sources to see the evidence. http://houseofnumbers.com http://omsj.org/category/issues/hivaids http://HelpforHIV.com http://Consciousdr.com http://Rense.com http://Virusmyth.com http://Youtube.com (In the Search Box, type in either "House of Numbers", "HIV: Fact or Fraud", "Positively False: Birth of a Heresy", "The Science of Panic", or "Interview with Dr Robert Gallo - Geneva World AIDS Conference 1998". http://Whale.to/aids.html http://robertscottbell.com http://aras.ab.ca/test-disclaimers.html http://fda.gov (Type in "HIV Medications and HIV Tests" in the Search box & read the Black Box warning labels carefully). http://virusmyth.com/aids/data/cjtestfp.htm http://NaturalCures.com http://garynull.com http://NaturalNews.com Google in the Search Box "Fear of the Invisible" by Janine Roberts http://Duesberg.com http://behindthefear.com http://truthbarrier.com http://reducetheburden.org http://thecaseagainsthiv.net http://Mercola.com http://hiv.viralforensics.com http://theperthgroup.com http://bobbywrussell.com/veteran-news.html Check out the Facebook page entitled, "Rethinking AIDS".   In conclusion, we need to file lawsuits against the "HIV/AIDS" industry because of a lie people have been told since 1981, that has led to millions of people being poisoned to death by both past & present lethal Anti-Retroviral medications (AZT, DDI, Truvada, etc). It is time to recognize that people's lives have only changed for the worse by testing with the "so-called HIV tests" that do not detect HIV infection.It is time to hold the medical and pharmaceutical industries accountable for these criminal acts and time to take our lives back from these industries, which has cost us billions of our hard-earned tax dollars since the 1980s, as well as millions of lost lives.

Petition to Food and Drug Administration

Spread awareness, stop the obesity epidemic in its tracks!

The obesity epidemic has more than likely impacted someone that you know in your lifetime. Whether it be a friend, family member, or even yourself. I would like to inform everyone about the issues that caused the obesity epidemic and encourage anyone who sees this to at the very least, become more educated about what is really in the food that we are consuming, and how we can eradicate this life threatening issue that the world faces today.  there are many things that have cause this epidemic to become such a dangerous predicament,  some of which include the fallowing...... "Risk Factors" or health issues caused from obesity( diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, etc... advertisements that were created by the food industries to make children believe that unhealthy foods are good for you organizations using incorrect terms and purposely hiding the amount of ingredients like sugar on nutrition labels. companies pricing healthy and unhealthy foods differently,(healthier foods become more expensive)   Now that were all aware of some of the many problems that are making this epidemic such a pressing issue,we can become more able to make changes in whatever little, or big ways that we can. I ask anyone who happens to see this petition to please consider signing.Not only to show that this is a concern to others, but to show that you are willing to create change, and encourage organizations like the FDA to ensure the safety of the people. I know that in the grand scheme of things it may not seem that a random article that you happened to find online would be of any real significance but remember, we are stronger in numbers, and with enough determination, even if you think something is impossible, WE can achieve great change!

Petition to Food and Drug Administration, President of the United States

Approve Hyperbaric Oxygen for Off-Label Conditions (CP, Autism, TBI, PTSD, etc.)

Hi! My name is Christian Huber, and I have mild cerebral palsy. I am 18 years old, and I have written a petition! Would you please take the time to read, sign, and share it if you support it? It would help me, and so many others with brain injuries! :) Here is what you will see in my Description section: 1) Petition Updates 2) My Story 3) Agreement in Which Petition Signer Abides By 4) Collet Study Fraud Information 5) External Resources 6) References *Photo on main page of petition from the Colorado Center for Hyperbaric Medicine [3]* ___________________________________________________________________ UPDATE (10/29/2017): Eden Carlson and her family were featured on Megyn Kelly Today for her miraculous almost complete reversal of brain damage! :)  Please, FDA, approve this treatment for little girls like Eden!

In the segment, Megyn Kelly mentioned that Duke University is studying hyperbaric oxygen therapy.  Taking into account what NBC Medical Contributor Dr. Natalie Azar said regarding HBOT research, I'm looking forward to seeing the results of (hopefully!) a randomized, double-blind controlled trial from Duke University supporting the use of HBOT in brain injury.  Although, it's not really necessary for them to study this therapy more since there are "...1000+ articles of HBOT efficacy in 50+ peer reviewed journals" (David Freels).  But, if yet another study is what it takes for the FDA to approve HBOT, I'm all for it! Resource Used for this Update: http://davidfreels.com/atlanta.copywriter.pdfs/davidfreels.com.pdfs.html  _________________________________________________________________ Part 1 of Description (My Story): “I have officially diagnosed your son with mild cerebral palsy,” said the doctor.  At that very moment, my life changed, and so did my parents’ lives.  Because I shared my mother’s womb with my identical twin who died, I was born two months prematurely on October 8, 1999.  As a result, my lungs weren’t fully developed, and I didn’t take one necessary breath when I was supposed to, and my brain suffered because of that loss of oxygen. My parents were unaware at that moment of how important that one breath of oxygen would be to my developing brain, and they would have no idea how it would affect me in the future.  Although mild, my cerebral palsy is a life-altering developmental disability[1] that has affected me since the day I was born. Fast forward 18 years from the day I was born, and my brain still hasn’t changed.  I still need assistance with skills that are considered to be easy to other people, such as finding something in the house, getting a knot out of my shoe, or doing any other life skill or activity that you could think of.  I currently take occupational therapy (OT) to work on those skills, and activities such as cooking corn muffins and making orzo salad.  One of my occupational therapists actually showed me how to wash my mom’s car, since that counts as a life skill, too!  He even said to me one time: “Everything’s OT,” meaning that every life skill I do, whether it’s washing a car or making a meal, is considered a part of occupational therapy. In addition to taking occupational therapy, I also currently take physical therapy so that I can loosen and strengthen my spastic leg muscles, improve my balance and coordination, run around the neighborhood, play basketball, and jump rope.  Even though these therapies are fun, sometimes I think that they aren't really helping, since I still wake up each morning with tight muscles and a brain that doesn't always work the way it should. Now that I am getting older, however, I am entering the transition phase from high school to college and the workplace.  As a result, in two years I will no longer be in school with occupational and physical therapy.  Although my parents love me very much, I can feel tension and the sense of urgency between my parents and I.  My dad sometimes mentions my age when I can’t do something by saying: “You’re 17 years old, you should know how to do this by now!”  I feel as if he sometimes doesn’t know how to take a deep breath, and calmly explain to me how to do something in a step by step way.  My mom is also getting nervous about my lack of life skills, despite my academic abilities.  She said to me just recently, “We are going to stay at home and work on life skills all summer.”  I would love to work on life skills all summer, but I need to heal my brain so that I can learn and grasp life skills quickly and easily.  Before I can pursue a neurological healing journey, however, I need the FDA to approve a treatment that has been proven to work: hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and I need all of you to sign my petition. Agreement in Which Petition Signer Abides By: If you sign this petition, you agree: That the FDA should approve hyperbaric oxygen therapy for cerebral palsy and other off-label conditions That insurance companies should pay for hyperbaric oxygen therapy so that patients living with off-label conditions can receive it free of charge References (Part 1):[1] Surabian SR. Developmental disabilities: epilepsy, cerebral palsy, and autism. Journal of the California Dental Association. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11484298 Published June 29, 2001. Accessed March 15, 2017. [3] TBI Therapy – Colorado Center for Hyperbaric Medicine. Colorado Center for Hyperbaric Medicine. http://www.cohyperbarics.com/tbi-therapy/ Accessed March 15, 2017. ________________________________________________________________ Part 2 of Description (Collet Study Fraud): Another reason why I created this petition was so that the Collet Study could be publicized as a fraud.  Read more about it below: Even though medical professionals say that cerebral palsy is incurable,[2] other doctors and medical centers claim that the contrary is true. One website that I visited, Colorado Hyperbarics Center, had an especially intriguing quote on it; one that made me just a tad bit angry inside. It said: “If HBOT could be delivered at the time of the initial insult, much of the damage could be minimized.[3] Unfortunately, clinical practice has not yet caught up to science and so it is extremely rare for a baby to receive HBOT at the time of a suspected birth injury.” The oxygen clinic also mentioned how virtually every abnormality that cerebral palsy is known for can be reversed, and how “It is no longer a question of whether HBOT is effective for CP, but whether a child has access to and reimbursement for HBOT.”[3] The information in that quote is very powerful, however some HBOT skeptics will do everything they can to disprove this treatment, including citing the famous randomized, double-blind study published in the Lancet in 2001 by Dr. Jean Paul Collet. Critics of the treatment say that because the official interpretation of the study claims that HBOT did not improve the condition of children with CP, HBOT should not be considered a viable treatment for cerebral palsy. However, Drs. Paul Harch, Michael Uszler and Pierre Marois all presented the facts about HBOT when they testified in court on August 9, 2006. The "petitioner" in the court case wanted Georgia Medicaid to reimburse him for treatments. Despite opposition, the testimonies of Drs. Harch, Uszler, and Marois all provided sufficient evidence to prove that HBOT can treat CP, and the judge ruled in favor of the petitioner. Georgia Medicaid is now required to reimburse in such cases.[4] Read more about the court case in citation [4]. One of the “principal co-authors” in the study, Dr. Pierre Marois, indicated during the court case mentioned above that Collet did not follow the recommended protocol for the study. This is because Collet did not include a control group (a group that did not receive treatment), along with the one group that received HBOT 1.75 times normal pressure at sea level, and another group that received air at 1.3 times normal pressure. Dr. Marois said that the physicians involved in the study knew that “…the improvements measured in this study were more impressive than all those measured with recognized therapies. Experience taught us there had never been that level of improvement in CP children prior to the study and it was dishonest to conclude it was attributable solely to a participation effect.” [5] Dr. Marois eventually goes on to say that even though he and other physicians involved in this study wanted to interpret the results of the study, “…Collet who had no knowledge or experience with HBOT or CP decided to interpret the results by himself. His conclusion was that the improvement was a placebo effect, an ironic finding since there was no true placebo group.” Dr. Marois says that “there was a big dispute over his interpretation of the results.” Dr. Collet, despite having a dispute with his colleagues, decided to send the article to the Lancet for publication, as long as all references to the word placebo were removed. Even after all the above evidence was provided in court to confirm Collet’s medical fraud, Dr. Marois drops a bombshell by saying: “Even when the article was published, Collet and the FRSQ, in the official governmental communiqués, falsified the title and the conclusion of the article to make everyone believe that the results of the study showed that the improvements were secondary to placebo effect. In fact, we have all the evidence to show that the improvements were the effect of both treatments administered with lower pressures.” [5] Wow. This just proves that hyperbaric oxygen works, and the critics of this therapy need to stop citing this fraudulent study to support their views. Aside from the court case, Dr. Collet has expressed during his speech at the International Conference on Cerebral Palsy in Quebec City, Canada on May 2, 2003 that (extra words such as “is” are removed for clarity): "...the hyperbaric center is in fact not a good practice because there was no regulation, and I wanted to prevent them to practice.” [6] Why does everyone believe that Collet’s study is credible, when he himself admitted that his primary goal during this study was to prevent hyperbaric oxygen clinics from practicing? In conclusion, the evidence above from the Colorado Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Dr. Pierre Marois all prove that hyperbaric oxygen therapy is effective for the treatment of cerebral palsy. It can also treat many conditions, including: autism, migraines, cancer, dementia, anxiety, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, and more. I, and others need to experience the healing benefits of this scientifically proven treatment! Let’s rally together in support of this therapy so that the FDA can approve hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the treatment of cerebral palsy and other off-label conditions! Also, let's demand that Dr. Collet edit his fraudulent study to promote the truth about hyperbaric oxygen and cerebral palsy (CP)!
