Security Threat from Within: a letter from Dr. Gabriel Cousens

Security Threat from Within

"Liberty is to the collective body what health is to every individual body. Without health, no pleasure can be tasted by man; without liberty no happiness can be enjoyed by society" ~ Thomas Jefferson

Now that we have recovered from the swine flu vaccination threat to our health and well-being, a new threat, using another level of security scare, is being used to expose the flying population to either excessive ionizing radiation or ultra high frequency radiation. Thanks to the radical Muslim effort, or whomever is behind this, to blow up an airplane on Christmas Day 2009, TSA Security Laboratory Director Susan Hallowell recently announced the agency’s intent to use back-scatter X-ray machines for passenger surveillance.

Obviously we need to refine our screening techniques to provide maximum safety for our air travel. This is not our objection. Our objection is that these X-ray machines, being field tested at JFK, LAX, and Orlando, penetrate a few centimeters into the skin and reflect back out a naked body image. While some will view this as a personal violation, this is not the immediate problem. Thomas Wiggins, a radiation company engineer, admits that before 9/11, proposing such a system would be like ordering his own death sentence. He has changed his mind and now states that they could “scan a pregnant woman 200 times without a health risk”. This is an entirely scientifically fallacious statement.

Those implementing this near-sighted, and ultimately genocidal, agenda have deliberately ignored the outstanding research of Dr. John Gofman (Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley) showing that THERE IS NO SAFE DOSE OF IONIZED RADIATION. This statement is based on years of serious unbiased research. Ionizing radiation in the X-ray spectrum damages and mutates both chromosomal DNA and structural proteins in human cells. If this damage is not repaired, it can lead to cancer. X-rays also damage the interior walls of the arteries. These radiation damaged cells are unable to process lipoproteins correctly, resulting in atherosclerotic plaques and mini tumors in the arteries thus stimulating atherosclerosis and heart disease. Dr. Gofman’s studies indicate that radiation from medical diagnostics and treatment is a causal co-factor in 50% of America’s cancers and 60% of our ischemic (blood flow blockage) heart disease. He stresses that the frequency with which Americans are medically X-rayed “makes for a significant radiological impact.” The bottom line is that the more people are exposed to these higher doses of radiation the greater their risk of real life-threatening cancer and heart disease.

A report in the British medical journal Lancet noted that after breast mammograms were introduced in 1983, the incidence of ductal carcinoma (12% of breast cancer) increased by 328%, of which 200% was due to the use of mammography itself. A Lawrence Berkeley National Lab study has demonstrated that breast tissue is extremely susceptible to radiation-induced cancer, confirming warnings by numerous experts that mammograms can initiate the very cancers they may later identify. Dr. Gofman believes that medical radiation is a co-factor in 75% of breast cancer cases. With this information, it would not be very intelligent to expose your breasts to radiation from X-ray machines at airports. This is an explicit danger to American women. (Infrared mammography is a far safer diagnostic tool. Research shows that flesh-eating women have a higher rate of breast cancer. A plant-source only diet is the best protection against breast cancer.) We always have to analyze the risks and benefits. In this case the risks of women dying from the radiation from these machines far out-weigh the risk of death caused by a terrorist highjacking. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t improve security, but these procedures must not introduce a scientifically proven life-threatening hazard to our health. Already, because of our toxic lifestyle, America’s cancer rates are rising in every category. It is a well known fact that airline pilots and cabin crews suffer more skin and breast cancer due to higher levels of radiation while flying. Dr. Abram Petkau has uncovered significant statistical research showing that a pregnant woman flying in an airplane, in her first trimester exposes her baby to enough radiation to increase its risk of leukemia sixteen times. I, myself, have measured radiation at 30,000 feet using a radiation counter and found it to be ten times higher at this altitude than on the ground. To add additional lethal radiation to people, already getting an unhealthy dose from flying, when there are other alternatives, seems genocidal, whether conscious or unconscious.

The other source of surveillance being considered is ultra high frequency radio waves. There are scanners available that produce a frequency 1000 times higher than is healthfully advisable. Some examples of this are radar, producing a wide variety of radiations, causing cancer and neurological problems. Microwaves are also noted to cause cancer in areas in which people are exposed. Swedish research on the use of ultra sound technologies on fetuses indicate that it may cause subtle brain damage, and may be associated with delayed development in infants, as well as learning disorders.

The attempted terrorist attacks do create some concern. We do need to think about appropriate security without creating a screening system lethal to our population. Although I am sure these extremists and terrorists would support such a lethal screening system with great humor.

There are many forms of security screening that could work, in addition to effectively enforcing those systems already in place. In this particular case, the young man’s father actually went the embassy in Nigeria and warned them of his son’s intentions. In every incident there have been traceable warnings. We have had sufficient evidence. Presently billions of dollars are being spent on technology that makes us less secure, because we are screening people who are not a threat, namely the US population. When we put our energy in one direction, we move it away from another. In this situation, they are rerouting attention away from the actual threats. A variety of security consultants have specifically said that we need to focus on identifying the terrorists and their patterns instead of their tactics, which are always changing. Their suggestion is not to put money into X-ray machines that will have a genocidal effect on our population, but rather into an intensive examination of evidence, as has been put forward in each of these bombings. In this way we would have a focus on the actual problem instead of on innocent global and national populations. The security systems in Israel are the best in the world, and they utilize this approach. It is not a “profile approach”, which could be considered against the US constitution, but it is an anti-terrorist approach. Given the amount of onslaught in Israel, they seem to be doing quite well without subjecting their population to this “needle in a haystack” methodology. Using a priority system for classifying travelers and people has been executed in some countries very successfully. People have the right to request a TSA non-radiation search, which may include dogs sniffing for chemicals, as well as, in high security cases, a strip search.

I am urging you to start expressing your concern now. We must strongly protest to convince authorities that this is a dangerous, thoughtless, and genocidal approach, which will increase the risk of cancer, atherosclerosis, heart disease, and brain damage to our population. The risk/benefit analysis does not justify these measures, which are at best foolish and genocidal.

Dr. Gabriel’s medical blog suggests four points of action:

  1. Demand that Congress mandate TSA’s radiation experiments be strictly voluntary.
  2. Demand the right to request that TSA conduct a non-radiation search of our persons.
  3. Demand our right to abstain from security procedures that may harm our children.
  4. Initiate an e-mail campaign to convince TSA and the airlines that forcible assault by radiation makes the cost of an airline ticket impossibly prohibitive.
