This Memorial Day, join the call for dignified health care for all U.S. veterans

Memorial Day

(NaturalNews) Recent revelations that VA hospitals kept veterans on secret "waiting lists" to deny them care are shocking, if not downright despicable. If the moral integrity of any government is measured by how well it treats its own veterans, the current U.S. government has almost no morality at all. We owe it to our veterans to give them dignified medical care for the duration of their lives.

It was they, after all, who were willing to give up their lives in defense of their country. But now their own country has abandoned them in their time of need. This situation is not acceptable.

Just in case you're not up to speed on the VA hospital scandal, a doctor recently blew the whistle on the "death panel" practices he witnessed firsthand there. As he explained in an op-ed piece published by the New York Times: (1)

My decision to become a whistle-blower after 24 years as a physician in a Veterans Affairs hospital was, at first, an easy one. I knew about patients who were dying while waiting for appointments on the V.A.'s secret schedules, and I couldn’t stay silent.

The secret waiting lists are really "death panels"

The real shocker in all this is that the long-dreaded "death panels" that we all knew would eventually become part of the government's socialized health care system are already in place! Veterans died under the care of VA hospitals which essentially applied death panel practices to patient wait lists.

It is unconscionable to me that our own military veterans could survive wars in foreign lands only to return home to America and die years later on secret death panel lists. In a nation where the federal government always seems to find trillions of dollars for banker bailouts, car company bailouts and (coming soon) even a federal bailout of an entire city (Detroit), it is unimaginable that money couldn't be found (or simply printed up) to provide medical treatment for our own veterans.

In many ways, federal prisoners receive better medical care than veterans do, and that situation is wholly unacceptable. Beyond basic health care, our veterans also need access to alternative and complementary medicine, including acupuncture, cupping therapy, nutritional support and other non-drug treatments. (Because another great failing of the medical system is that too often soldiers are simply drugged into a state of acquiescence rather than legitimately treated for anything.)

Cupping therapy, in particular, is extremely useful for treating PTSD as well as the kind of chronic pain issues many soldiers suffer from. (See cupping therapy photo and explanation here.)

Join the call for fundamental health care dignity for our soldiers and veterans

If anybody deserves free health care in America, it's our soldiers and veterans. That's even more true considering the fact that the Pentagon keeps exposing our soldiers to experimental vaccines (too dangerous to give to the public) and depleted uranium weapons which expose our soldiers to radiological contamination.

Soldiers are asked to take more experimental drugs, expose themselves to more experimental chemicals and engage in more dangerous activities than anyone else in society. So of course they are going to need higher medical costs in the years following their war-time activities. To abandon them after they have fulfilled their duty is the ultimate betrayal by a government that seems to have abandoned a long list of its responsibilities to the People.

As the Health Ranger, I'm calling for dignified, even lavish health care services for our veterans. I am ashamed that my own country doesn't treat its veterans like first-class citizens, and I feel a moral obligation to take action to do my part in helping veterans protect their health from a failed medical system that only looks to get worse. The decline of morality now witnessed at the highest levels of government in our nation is appalling.

Natural News to donate radiation protection formulas to veterans groups

As part of this effort to support veterans, I've decided to donate substantial quantities of my upcoming radioisotope defense dietary formula to veterans groups across America. These donations will be coordinated with Disabled American Veterans, a group I have already helped support with substantial donations in years past.

As background for this, I am the scientific researcher who developed a radioprotective dietary formula by conducting original research in our atomic spectroscopy laboratory. The resulting formula is now patent pending and laboratory validated by two different labs. It shows a 95% efficacy at capturing cesium isotopes across a wide range of concentrations, including up to 91 ppm in gastric acid during digestion. The dietary formula is the world's first emergency use "cesium blocker" which can help the body naturally eliminate radioactive cesium isotopes.

I cannot give our veterans health care services, as we are not a hospital. But we can donate these emergency preparedness items to veterans groups as a small token of appreciation for the sacrifices these men and women have made. (If you are a commander of a local DAV organization, please contact us to make arrangements.)

This new dietary formula is currently in manufacturing and we plan to begin shipping out donations this summer.

I personally salute our veterans and vow to continue fighting on the 'net for their dignified care and honor.

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.
