The American Chemistry Council, predictably, insisted that BPA was safe for everyone (http://www.naturalnews.com/027975_American_Chemistry_Council_BPA.html), even as new evidence emerged that BPA was actually quite dangerous and might promote cancer. Food packaging companies scrambled to release BPA-free products, but the chemical is still found throughout canned soups and many other products.
We also learned more about the dangers of High Fructose Corn Syrup and how it promotes diabetes (http://www.naturalnews.com/028340_diabetes_sodas.html). The news about HFCS got so bad that the corn syrup industry announced it was changing the name of the ingredient to "corn sugar" in an effort to fool consumers.
On the intellectual property side of things, the US Patent Office actually took steps to invalidate corporate patents on human genes (http://www.naturalnews.com/030256_genes_patent_protection.html). This isn't a done deal yet, but it's a hopeful step in the right direction toward ending ridiculous gene patents.
The supply of Rare Earth Elements began to be in trouble in 2010 as we learned that many of the key components in electronics and solar panels are actually derived from filthy mines in China where many of these metals are about to be in critically short supply (http://www.naturalnews.com/028028_rare_earth_elements_mining.html).
The Lancet retracted Dr Wakefield's famous paper linking vaccines to autism, thereby rewriting medical history in much the same way as the lead character in George Orwell's 1984 book, where history was always reconstructed to match the political illusions of the current power holders. (http://www.naturalnews.com/028101_The_Lancet_Dr_Wakefield.html)
To expose the fraud of the H1N1 swine flu vaccine scheme, I offered a $10,000 reward for proof that the vaccine was safe and effective (http://www.naturalnews.com/027985_H1N1_vaccines_safety.html), but no one took me up on the offer, of course, since such evidence does not exist. (That's because they never adequately test these vaccines before they start injecting people.)
On the psychiatric stage, 2010 saw the industry label healthy eating a "mental disorder" that they dubbed orthorexia nervosa (http://www.naturalnews.com/029098_orthorexia_mental_disorder.html). That's on top of the similarly concocted Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD) which is diagnosed in anyone who questions authority or refuses to get vaccinated.
Dr. Scott Reuben, an esteemed Big Pharma researcher, was caught faking dozens of studies upon which the medical industry relied to push popular prescription drugs (http://www.naturalnews.com/028194_Scott_Reuben_research_fraud.html). To this day, Dr Reuben's research is still quoted in books and medical journals, even though we now know he simply invented all the clinical trial data.
But Dr Reuben wasn't the end of the pharmaceutical fraud news in 2010. We also learned that virtually all placebo-controlled trials throughout the industry were fraudulent to begin with because there are zero standards for the composition of the placebo pills, and what they're made of is almost never reported in clinical trials (http://www.naturalnews.com/030209_placebo_medical_fraud.html).
Johnson & Johnson took center stage throughout 2010 with a seeming never-ending stream of product recalls due to all sorts of chemicals and even metal fragments being found in their medicines. They were also caught in a drug profit kickback scheme and were sued by the Justice Department (http://www.naturalnews.com/027994_Johnson_&_kickbacks.html).
2010 was a big year of censorship. YouTube censored our interview with Jeffrey Smith about GMOs (http://www.naturalnews.com/028718_YouTube_censorship.html) and then later turned the video back on. Alex Jones saw his site removed from the Google News search engine, and YouTube also announced it would drop his entire video channel.
Meanwhile, the United States was caught red-handed in conducting medical experiments on Guatemalan prisoners (http://www.naturalnews.com/029924_medical_experiments_Guatemala.html). Obama actually had to pick up the phone and apologize for this embarrassing bit of history that shows how governments always use innocents as guinea pigs to test their drugs.
What a year, huh?
In addition to everything mentioned above, 2010 also saw the release of a huge number of studies supporting the healing use of herbs and natural remedies.
Still, 2010 was mostly a year of expanded censorship, attacks on health freedom and expansions of government tyranny.
Fortunately for us all, 2011 - 2012 look to be far more positive in terms of people waking up and contributing to global changes in consciousness that will ultimately end this era of censorship and ignorance (see my upcoming article on 2011 predictions for details).
