Energy drinks

(NaturalNews) It's big news today: A new report released by conventional pediatricians in the U.S. warns that energy drinks may cause seizures, kidney damage and even death in children. "Across the world there are signs that for some people who consume these drinks, there are side effects," explained Dr. Steven E. Lipshultz in a Reuters report (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/02/14/us...). He heads up the department of pediatrics at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine.

He adds, "The incidence is low, but in certain groups that pediatricians care for there may be higher risks."

Hold on a second. There's a product that causes seizures, kidney damage and even death in a small group of children, and pediatricians are concerned about it?

This comes as a huge surprise because there's another category of products that also cause seizures, kidney damage and death in a relatively small number of children: Vaccines.

Questioning the safety of energy drinks while ignoring the dangers of vaccines

Pediatricians don't appear to have any interest whatsoever in questioning the safety of vaccines. In fact, they actively promote all sorts of vaccines, even in the complete absence of any sort of truly scientific safety data that would show them to be safe for repeated, long-term consumption.

Did you know, for example, that vaccines in children have never been tested against a non-vaccinated group of children? Did you also know that vaccines are almost never tested to observe side effects beyond a few weeks? And that no tests have ever been done to determine the long-term toxicity of combinations of vaccines such as those given to children every single day? (See sources below...)

It seems that whatever products are made by the drug companies are automatically deemed safe by pediatricians. If energy drinks were sold by Big Pharma, they'd be declared "safe for children" at any dose and pediatricians would probably even recommend that children drink them.

See, today's news isn't really a story about energy drinks. It's about the sleight of hand being pulled off by pediatricians: If they can trick you into focusing on the virtually non-existent problems with energy drinks, then you won't spend much time questioning the safety of vaccines which are orders of magnitude more dangerous to children.

Pediatricians want you to question what your children are drinking, but not what they're injecting.

Go figure.

Energy drinks don't contain mercury and aluminum

Never mind the fact that vaccines contain mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde. Can you imagine the outcry by pediatricians if energy drinks were found to contain trace amounts of mercury and aluminum? The FDA would seize the products and shut down the entire operation. But when those same heavy metals and toxic substances are intentionally added to vaccines and then injected into children, somehow that's perfectly safe, say the pediatricians. (And yes, even the so-called "mercury-free" vaccines still contain mercury. The mercury-free claim is a marketing gimmick.)

So, do energy drinks really pose a health risk to children and teens? The answer is probably a qualified "yes." But the real risks must include the bone loss from phosphoric acid, the neurological side effects of aspartame consumption, and the diabetes caused by drinking liquid sugars. You won't see pediatricians discuss any of those -- there's too much pressure from the food and beverage industries to ask any meaningful questions about the safety of those ingredients.

And so the target of the pediatricians, as usual, becomes the caffeine and the herbal stimulants in these beverages -- ingredients such as guarana. That's what this is all boiling down to: Beware of your children drinking guarana! But have no fear about injecting them with mercury-laden vaccines.

Why won't the pediatricians question the ingredients in children's medicines?

The whole thing is quite idiotic, of course. But that's par for the course when it comes to conventional pediatricians, who seem to get riled up about all the wrong things. If pediatricians really wanted to make a difference, they should sound the alarm over the toxic chemicals in children's over-the-counter medicines.

Have you read the ingredients on any of that stuff lately? These "medicines" are loaded with artificial colors and chemical sweeteners like sucralose and aspartame. Many of the implied health benefits of these medicines are dubious at best: Cough syrups, in particular, are a complete joke.

And have you looked at the ingredients of infant formula lately? One popular product is made with over 40 percent corn syrup solids! (https://www.naturalnews.com/029863_Similac_in...).

The pediatrics community, not surprisingly, remains silent on all these. You're not supposed to notice the chemicals in your children's medicines, nor the processed sugars in your infant formula. Pay no attention to the mercury in your children's vaccines. Don't worry about the abuse of prescription antibiotics.

No, you're supposed to be alarmed about energy drinks. And only energy drinks. And why? Because that's what pediatricians tell you to be alarmed about.

You should be very, very afraid if your child drinks a can of Red Bull. But pay no heed if they're shooting up with mercury, aluminum and viral fragments harvested from diseased animals. At least with Red Bull, there are no actual bull parts in the drink. ...as opposed to vaccines, where there's plenty of B.S. mixed right into the formula.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
