The Greater Good Documentary: Illuminating The Vaccination Debate

TheGreaterGoodTo vaccinate or not? The Greater Good sheds light on the ever debatable topic of vaccines. What I particularly love about this film, apart from it’s fantastic production value and equitable conversation on both sides, is the way in which I was drawn into the heart-wrenching personal stories woven throughout the film.

This film is a must watch for all of us – parents considering vaccinations, young women contemplating the HPV vaccine and even those of us still considering the annual flu shot! This is a contentious issue and one that needs a lot more attention, moving towards an egalitarian system where we have the right to decide what is best for us and our family.

If You Think You Know Everything About Vaccines… Think Again

The Greater Good is a multiple award winning documentary that goes beyond the fear, hype and politics that have polarized the vaccine debate. This compelling film looks at BOTH sides of the vaccine controversy and re-frames this emotionally charged issue. It offers, for the first time, the opportunity for a rational and scientific discussion about how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program. American children are now the most vaccinated population on the planet. One would think they would also be the healthiest, but consider these alarming statistics – according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • 1 in 6 children has a learning disability or behavioural problem
  • 1 in 9 children is asthmatic
  • 1 in 110 children suffers from autism
  • 1 in 450 is diabetic

In the 1980s, children were given 23 doses of 7 different vaccines. By 2010, parents are being asked to give their children 69 doses of 16 vaccines. That’s triple the dose of those recommended in the 1980s.

The Greater Good explores sheds light on an issue that is already on the minds of expecting mothers and fathers, grandparents, doctors and healthcare professionals across the country. The film offers parents, doctors and policy-makers a safe space to actively listen to and learn more about vaccine choices.

What You Will Learn
  • The differing views on vaccine safety from Doctors, Scientists, Activists and Policy Makers.
  • The link between vaccines and chronic illnesses such as asthma, allergies, learning disabilities, behavioural problems, autism, unexplained infant death as well as autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, lupus, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • The connection between gut, immune and neurological issues seen in vaccine injuries.

Genetic Roulette By Jeffrey Smith


GeneticRouletteThe biotech industry’s claim that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe is shattered in this ground-breaking book. Sixty-five health risks of the foods that Americans [and others around the world] eat every day are presented in easy-to-read two-page spreads. The left page is designed for the quick scanning reader; it includes bullets, illustrations, and quotes. The right side offers fully referenced text, describing both research studies and theoretical risks. The second half of Genetic Roulette shows how safety assessments on GM crops are not competent to identify the health problems presented in the first half.

This book, prepared in collaboration with a team of international scientists, is for anyone wanting to understand GM technology, to learn how to protect themselves, or to share their concerns with others. It is presented in the clear, accessible style that made Jeffrey Smith’s Seeds of Deception the world’s best-selling book on genetically engineered foods. As the world’s most complete reference on the health risks of GM foods, Genetic Roulette is also ideal for schools and libraries.

Jeffrey Smith raises serious questions concerning the production of genetically modified foods. Based on meticulous research, Genetic Roulette offers a chilling reminder that the effects of GM foods on human health are largely untested. And, whilst we cannot assume that all such foods are dangerous, nor can we assume that they are all safe, especially in the long term. Yet in the US there is no labelling, so these products sneak into households in many different foods. If you care about your health and that of your children, buy this book, become aware of the potential problems, and take action.

Dr Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace.

The most comprehensive, well-documented, and highly readable exposé on the serious health dangers of GM foods.

Samuel S Epstein, MD, Professor Emeritus of Environmental Medicine, University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health and chairman, Cancer Prevention Coalition.

Smith has to be the best science communicator alive today, and this book stands as the final word on GM health risks. It’s the definitive answer to those who don’t know, those who don’t want to know, and those who know but don’t want anyone else to know.

Claire Robinson, GM Watch.

The book is available at Seeds of Deception.

The Documentary


GeneticRouletteDVDJeffrey Smith, of The Institute For Responsible Technology, has released this hard-hitting and thought-provoking documentary, Genetic Roulette, as a companion to his book, of the same name.

I was shocked to learn the extent to which our food supply has been manipulated through genetic engineering, in a manner that is evidently having catastrophic consequences. The release of this film is timely – disease rates are increasing at unprecedented rates and people are asking why. GMO’s affect all of us. Please do yourself a favor and watch this film and then tell everyone about it.

Laurentine ten Bosch: Producer/ Director Food Matters and Hungry For Change

About Genetic Roulette

When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions.

The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.

After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.

Directed by outspoken GMO critic Jeffrey Smith, the film is an unsettling tour through a myriad of serious health conditions implicated with genetically altered crops, from allergies and intestinal disorders to diabetes and autism. Many explanations are offered for how these ailments could potentially arise.

Genetic Roulette provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, but also offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.

The documentary features commentary from a wide range of eminent physicians, scientists, policy makers and activists.

What You Will Learn
  • The serious far reaching threats posed by genetically engineered foods
  • Compelling evidence that suggests a link between the consumption of GE Foods and rising disease, illness and allergy rates
  • Why GM foods are bad news for you and your family’s health
  • The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) policy on genetically engineered foods
  • The power and influence of Agribusiness and Chemical companies in deciding what we eat and how they hide the evidence
  • Ways that you can help in the fight for healthy food and transparency with food labelling

In exposing the bullying and deceit of of the biotech industry, Jeffrey Smith’s mesmerizing film shines a bright light of hope that we can reclaim our health and our food systems. Meticulously documented, thoroughly comprehensive, and rivetingly presented, this is more than an adventure story with intense drama and high stakes. It is in fact one of the most important stories ever told. Watch it and be galvanized, inspired, and engaged. Then tell everyone you know.

The Marketing Of Madness: Drug Marketing At The Expense Of Health


TheMarketingOfMadnessThe Marketing of Madness is the definitive documentary on the psychiatric drugging industry. Here is the real story of the high-income partnership between psychiatry and drug companies that has created an $80 billion psychotropic drug profit centre.

Nevertheless, appearances are deceiving. How valid are psychiatrists’ diagnoses – and how safe are their drugs? Digging deep beneath the corporate veneer, this three-part documentary exposes the truth behind the slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal dangerous and often deadly sales campaigns.

In this film you’ll discover that:

  • Many of the drugs side effects may actually make your ‘mental illness’ worse
  • Psychiatric drugs can induce aggression or depression
  • Some psychotropic drugs prescribed to children are more addictive than cocaine
  • Psychiatric diagnoses appears to be based on dubious science. Of the 297 mental disorders contained with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, none can be objectively measured by pathological tests. Mental illness symptoms within this manual are arbitrarily assigned by a subjective voting system in a psychiatric panel
  • It is estimated that 100 million people globally use psychotropic drugs

The Marketing of Madness exposes the real insanity in our psychiatric ‘health care’ system: profit-driven drug marketing at the expense of human rights.

This film plunges into an industry corrupted by corporate greed and delivers a shocking warning from courageous experts who value public health over the dollar.

The Marketing of Madness Features Gwen Olsen: The RX Reformer, author of Confessions Of An Rx Drug Pusher, in which she discusses some of the tactics used by some pharmaceutical sales representatives to get doctors to prescribe their drugs.

The Beautiful Truth: The Documentary


BeautifulTruthDVDThe Beautiful Truth is a remarkable, challenging and inspiring film, featuring Charlotte Gerson, amongst many world-renowned experts in natural health. I am pleased to see that the film features Joyce Riley, host of The Power Hour Radio Show. Joyce continues to inspire and inform my own approach to naturally sustained good health.

Garrett is a 15-year old boy living in the Alaskan wilderness with a menagerie of orphaned animals. Growing up close with nature has given him a deep understanding of nutritional needs required by diet sensitive animals on the reserve. Unfortunately, the untimely and tragic death of his mother propelled him into a downward spiral and he risked flunking out of school. This led to his fathers decision to home-school Garrett.

His first assignment was to study a controversial book written by Dr Max Gerson.

Written over 50 years ago, Dr Gerson found that diet could, and did, cure cancer. Controversial at the time (and even today), Garrett took on the challenge of researching this amazing therapy, which drew the interest of his neighbours in the small Alaskan community.

With the help of Dr Gerson’s daughter, Charlotte Gerson, and grandson, Howard Strauss, they gave him the ammunition needed to go in search for the truth a truth that would affect not only him, but his entire Alaskan village all of whom wanted to know if these claims were true.

After a number of cancer patients, who were diagnosed as terminal, shared their stories and their medical records with Garrett, it became abundantly clear that, contrary to the disinformation campaign spear-headed by the multi-billion dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry, a cure for virtually all cancers and chronic diseases does exist and has existed for over 80 years!

Garrett’s mission now is to tell the world.

The Gerson Miracle: The Documentary

I see in Dr Max Gerson one of the most eminent geniuses in the history of medicine.

Dr Albert Schweitzer Nobel Laureate

TheGersonMiracleThe Gerson Miracle introduces us to the physician who developed The Gerson Therapy more than 75 years ago, a therapy that has proven to cure cancer and most other chronic and degenerative diseases. Through his own painful struggle with migraines, Dr Max Gerson conceived a treatment based entirely on nutrition and the body’s own ability to heal itself. He cured his migraines and summarily concentrated on other methods that prove to naturally boost the immune system this is the real miracle.

Nine current and former patients speak passionately about their successful recoveries from the most deadly cancers. Their first-person recovery stories are the greatest testament to the therapy’s efficacy. It is through Dr Gerson’s daughter, Charlotte, that the therapy is still alive in the face of almost insurmountable opposition from the American Medical Association and most major pharmaceutical companies. This film offers a path to a healthier life, in tune with our bodies and environment, not in conflict with them.

Your doctor may not advise you how you can heal your body from degenerative diseases naturally… but this film can.

What Is Covered In The Film
  • The cancer industry: with the law on its side
  • Natural cancer treatments
  • Dr Max Gerson’s life story
  • The link between farming, disease, and health!
  • The role of toxicity and nutrient deficiency in illness?

With every meal, we are either digging our own graves with the silverware, or ensuring a healthy and productive life.

The Gerson Miracle challenges the very foundations that society’s sick-care system is based on. It also delivers a health-affirming message that empowers viewers to reclaim autonomy for their own well-being. This film dares to reveal that your potential for health exceeds the limitations imposed on us by the sickness industry.

The Gerson Miracle Documentary, won the Golden Palm Award at the 2004 Beverly Hills Film Festival.

Flood Your Body With Oxygen By Ed McCabe


FloodYouBodyWithOxygenEd McCabe discusses the true significance of oxygen in regaining, and maintaining, naturally sustainable good health. Ed explains why the medical and pharmaceutical industries do not want you to know the truth about how they have used their financial and political influence to promote drug dependence and the spread of reversible and preventable disease, worldwide.
McCabe is the author of the groundbreaking book, Flood Your Body With Oxygen. I first heard about Ed’s work when he appeared on The Power Hour radio show in 2010. When the book was revised, in 2011, Ed appeared on the show again and, as always, I continued to learn.

I am pleased to see that a four DVD presentation is also available to accompany the book, giving additional background and source material and providing even more persuasive evidence of the critical importance of oxygen as the key to naturally sustainable good health.

The book and DVD are available at Ed McCabe’s website.
