"Praise God Federal Judges Deems 'Obamacare' UNCONSTITUTIONAL" By Reverend Barbara Sexton

Dear Ones:

     Here's a beauty of a LINK for you...one of many. Read here about the progress being made to ultimately REPEAL and REPLACE "Obamacare".

     All I can say with all the 'bad news' about what's going on in the world today is "THANK YOU LORD" for this bit of uplifting encouragement!
PRAISE HIM!

"The Biblical Bichemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"
http://www.dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/
Read here the wise words of Brother Jim Sutton:
     The Bible says that God is an ever-present help in time of need. God is with us. The Lord is kind and merciful, the Bible says, to all who trust in Him, to all who call upon Him. He will help us. He will help me and He will help you. We do not need to become anxious for things beyond our control. Nothing is outside of God's control. Not one thing.

     Trust in the Lord and be assured in your heart that He will act on your behalf, He gave His own Son for us all. Will He not also, with Him, freely provide for our needs? The scarier things get, the more we need to give God praise. Not because we are crazy, and not because we don't understand the seriousness of life's difficulties. But because we know that the battle is not ours. God is He who watches over us. The Lord, kind and merciful, is He who answers our prayers.
     Jesus said that the Father delights to give us the kingdom. He also taught very clearly that we are to trust God for all our needs. Did He not give us the example of the birds who do not produce goods for trading or gather food into barns? Did He not say that the Father feeds them? And did the Lord Jesus not teach us that God clothes the flowers in such rich colors - flowers of the open meadows that are here today and gone tomorrow? The Lord is good to provide and He will provide.
     It is good for us to learn to depend on God. It is good for us to trust in God, as our currency claims we do. It is good for us to know the Lord and to serve Him.
     If you find yourself staring out at the hills, or the far horizon, wondering how and when your help will come, you are not alone. Many Americans are facing times they never thought they would see. Times come and go. Storms come and go. One year is rich and fat and another is lean. But God never changes. He helps us in good times and bad. He is with us in the boat and with us along the dusty road. He is with us when we are born into this world and with us as we go out again. The Lord will not leave us or forsake us. He will carry us through the fire, through the deep waters, and all through the darkest night. The Lord will keep us. Blessed be the name of the Lord. Amen.

"Armed Gangs Free Muslim Militants In Egypt" By Reverend Barbara Sexton


Armed Gangs Free Muslim Militants in Egypt January 30, 2011  Associated Press

CAIRO -- Gangs of armed men attacked at least four jails across Egypt before dawn Sunday, helping to free hundreds of Muslim militants and thousands of other inmates as police vanished from the streets of Cairo and other cities.


The U.S. Embassy in Cairo told its citizens in Egypt to consider leaving the country as soon as possible, a display of Washington's escalating concern about the stability of its closest Arab ally.


The army sent hundreds more troops and armored vehicles onto the streets of Cairo and other cities but appeared to be taking little action against gangs of young men with guns and large sticks who were smashing cars and robbing people.


At least one Nile-side shopping mall in Cairo was on fire after being looted the previous day.

Please Bless and Keep Coptic Christians in Egypt who are persecuted every day by those intent on evil.
Please grant our USMC Your Mighty Strength & Power to Protect
And ever-remember your sons and daughters in Israel.
In Jesus's Name,
AMEN

In 2005, the United Nations General Assembly designated this day as International Holocaust Remembrance Day (IHRD), an annual day of commemoration to honor the victims of the Nazi era. Every member nation of the U.N. has an obligation to honor the memory of Holocaust victims and develop educational programs as part of an international resolve to help prevent future acts of genocide.

"Happy First Anniversary Greenwich-Stamford TEA PARTY PATRIOTS! (Event NEWLETTER) By Reverend Barbara Sexton

Hello Patriots:

Happy 1st Anniversary to the G/STPP!  January 27th we recognize one year of service to this country.

An evergrowing group of dedicated citizens has banded together to return America and CT to a place of productivity and prosperity based on the principles and construct set forth in our US Constitution. And on the core tenets of the Tea Party Patriots we educate, activate and motivate all to strive for fiscal responsibity, constitutionally limited government and free markets. This leads to nowhere but American exceptionalism.

This generation of patriots declare their independence from tyranny. Once again, "With firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor." We accomplish this mission as we move through the peaceful 2nd American Revolution.


WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26th

2) The Committees of Correspondance, a national group of tea party leaders, are welcoming all to join them this evening. A nationwide conference call is being held. I extend this invitation to you as we launch the FDR Project. The FDR Project (Frederick Douglas Republicans) is a commitment by Republicans to reach out to the urban voter that traditionally votes Democrat because of the 'D' after their name. Black conservative leadership is coming forward to assist fellow republicans reach out and, as Star Parker puts it "free them from Uncle Sam's Plantation."


As most will be home this evening due to the accumulating snow, please join the discussion with an American I would vote for anyday. Freshman US Congressman Col. Alan West of Florida will be commenting on the State of the Union address as well as sharing his story and offering solutions to reaching the urban voters. Engage yourself as you do your part to expand the conservative Republican base. Ask your questions.

PLEASE TAKE CARE WITH YOUR SAFETY MY FELLOW TEA PARTY PATRIOTS!--Rev. Barb

UPDATE ON THE SPECIAL ELECTIONS:

In our G/STPP all out support in the District 27 race, here is the general info for the Bob Kolenberg for State Senate campaign I have gotten out to the Republican leadership across the 4th Congressional District as of yesterday....


Please contact me as soon as possible to let me know how you can help.


Tea Party Phonebank nights are Monday February 7.14 and 21 11:00AM-8:00PM


Come on down to meet fellow Patriots.
Hi all,
I am managing the volunteers for Bob Kolenberg's run for State Senator to represent District 27 Stamford/Darien. You may ask why I reach out to Republicans in all of the 4th Congressional District to support a candidate in Stamford/Darien. The reason is simple; we need more conservative, principled and hardworking representation in Hartford.


The bad news from November's general election is we wound up with Dan Malloy as governor. The good news is we gained 15 seats in the state legislature. With Gov. Malloy's 8 appointments and 1 resignation, we as Republicans have been blessed with the opportunity to move 9 more seats over.


The challenge we face is only to get out our vote.


I am putting together phonebanking nights for groups across the district to participate in the effort to bring balance to Hartford. Sessions to make sure people get out and vote will be held every Monday-Saturday from 4:00-8:00PM through February 22nd. The phones are located at Kolenberg for State Senate headquarters at 108 Bedford Street in Stamford. Please let me know which evening would be good for your group so I can get you on the calendar. We can't balance the budget until we balance Hartford. I encourage all RTCs to step up and do as much as they can to help all of the citizens of CT. Bob not only represents his district but his vote affects all of us. God gave us another chance. How foolish would it be to sit on our hands now?


Please take the time to check Bob out for yourself (a small section from the site is copied below): http://kolenbergforsenate.com/ Sign up for the insider info and be kept up to date on the latest from the campaign. To get to know him better firsthand there is a League of Women Voters’ debate tentatively scheduled for Tuesday Feb 8th.


If individuals find other times more convenient for phonebanking (phones are open from 11AM-8PM or would prefer to help out with other assignments including door-to-door and on election day anyone may contact me directly at iwantmo2@hotmail.com  or on my cel at 203-962-1413.


Thanks for being here,


Monique Thomas
Volunteer Coordinator
Kolenberg for State Senate

Looking Out for You: The Record


Bob’s record on Stamford’s Board of Finance looking out for you and your tax dollars speaks for itself:   Click here to get inside information from the Kolenberg campaign: http://kolenbergforsenate.com  


• Two years before Bob was elected to the Board of Finance, Stamford suffered a whopping 16% property tax increase. After getting elected to the board, Bob was able to force the City to limit tax increases during the next two years to just 1%.


• City officials tried early this year to raise property taxes by 15%. Bob took on them again and whittled down the tax increase to just under 2%.

• Bob didn’t make a lot of friends with the City Hall Bureaucrats when he fought (and won) to put an end to the waste and mismanagement of City contracts.

• The former City administration wasn’t very happy when Bob pointed out that to acquire Whittaker Place for the Mill River Park project, the city had paid $1.2 million for a property which had an appraised value of no more the $395,000.


• And it was Bob Kolenberg, looking out for you and millions of your tax dollars, that forced the Board of Education to verify the city residency requirement for students.


• If you are a senior, or have seniors in your family, you have Bob to thank for leading fight for senior tax relief.


• Finally, Bob didn’t make many friends in City Government when he blew the whistle on the City Maintenance Department that was paying $500 per hour for vehicle repairs. (Even Ferrari dealerships don’t charge that much for repairs and they’re not driving Ferrari’s at City Hall – At least we hope not.)

To help out on any of the other races in the state:

From the desk of Chris Healy-CT GOP CHAIR:

"As we expected, Governor Malloy rewarded some if his Big Government partisan pals from the legislature with jobs in the new administration leaving 8 vacancies in the State Legislature. Disgraced State Senator Tom Gaffey's resignation added an additional vacancy bringing the total number of Special Elections to 9.


We have an opportunity to send more Republicans to Hartford to bring common sense solutions and responsible leaders to an out of control, out of touch elected class.


The Special Elections will be held on Tuesday, February 22nd, just 4 weeks away, we need your help! Follow this link now to find out who the candidates are and make a contribution to their campaign.

Manpower is essential to getting out the vote. Contact the candidate of your choice today to get them elected and make CT better for all of us.

"Now Pfizer, Progenics Recalling RELISTOR Due To Potentially Contaminated Triad Alcohol Products" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

Dear Ones:
     Pfizer Inc. and Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc are also being affected by the Triad alcohol prep pad and swabstick FDA RECALL.
     Do not use the Triad-manufactured alcohol pads packaged with RELISTOR aka methylnaltrexone bromide.
     You can read my additional articles on this Triad alcohol prep pad and swab situation for additional information on how to deal with this ongoing FDA Recall concern:
LINK: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2011/01/genentechinjectables-boniva-fuzeon.html
LINK: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2011/01/contaminated-alcohol-swabs-recalled-in.html

And read this from the latest Triad-related FDA Recall page:
"FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - January 25, 2011 - NEW YORK, N.Y. and TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Pfizer Inc. and Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. have learned of a United States market recall of alcohol prep pads and swabs manufactured by the Triad Group. In the interest of patient safety, Pfizer and Progenics are alerting U.S. patients and physicians to Triad’s recall. Triad® Alcohol Prep Pads are packaged for use with the kit presentation of RELISTOR® (methylnaltrexone bromide) Subcutaneous Injection in the U.S. The RELISTOR vial and other components of the kit are not affected by the defective Triad alcohol pad. RELISTOR sold in single vials also is unaffected by this recall.

Pfizer and Progenics advise patients using the RELISTOR kit not to use the Triad alcohol prep pads included in the RELISTOR packaging for 1 X 7 kits and 1 X 2 starter kits. When preparing to take their RELISTOR injection, patients should use an alcohol prep pad from a company other than Triad, or use a sterile gauze pad with isopropyl alcohol.

Shipments of RELISTOR kits have been suspended until the alcohol pads can be replaced, which will be done as quickly as possible to enable patients to continue to receive RELISTOR. Triad alcohol prep products are not included in RELISTOR sold as single vials or in RELISTOR kits outside of the United States or with other Pfizer medications.

The following information about the recall of Triad alcohol prep products is available on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s web site: Triad press release: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm239219.htm  Safety information: www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm239319.htm

Patients with questions about RELISTOR should consult their pharmacist or healthcare provider, or call Pfizer Medical Information at 1-800-438-1985. RELISTOR is manufactured and marketed by Pfizer under a licensing agreement with Progenics.
About RELISTOR

RELISTOR Subcutaneous Injection is approved in the United States for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation (OIC) in patients with advanced illness who are receiving palliative care, when response to laxative therapy has not been sufficient."
READ THE REST HERE: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm241070.htm

From Rev. Barb:
     Dealing with grievous illness is a difficult and stressful process for patients and their loved ones. 
     Just know that you are never really 'alone', even in those worst moments at three in the morning when you are crying your eyes out 'alone' in your hospital or sick bed.  God is there with you in a very real way, along with the souls and angels He sends to comfort you.
     When I tell you not to be afraid, it is with the the voice of experience.  Not only have I been blessed with attending many as they have left 'this life' for the next one, but I've had my own near-death experience myself, which I will write about soon.
     In the meantime, take the information I provide here and benefit from the best of both the world of science, as well as the great Realm of our Creator.
     As an atheist-agnostic for the first 37 years of my life, a student and practitioner of biomedicine, I can only tell you that the more and more I learned about the wonderments of the human body and our universe, the more convinced I became that there just HAD to be a GRAND DESIGNER!
     So, for those of you wrestling with medical issues requiring timely medical consumer 'updates', I offer you some 'spiritual encouragement' along with the science.
     Take it, learn from it and be not afraid.

You are in my prayers at all times, those whose names I 'know' and those whose names I don't know yet.
God Bless You.  God is with you whether you are a believer or not!

"Shocking Revelation For CT TEA PARTY PATRIOTS Almost Immediately After Pima, Arizona Shootings" By Reverend Barbara Sexton






JellyMuffin.com - The place for profile layouts, flash generators, glitter graphics, backgrounds and codes
Myspace Stuff

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Acquitting the guilty and convicting the innocent, the Lord detests them both."
Proverbs 17:15 (NIV)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dear Ones:
     Below is the timeline for the recent Arizona shootings from the Pima County's Sheriff Dept, including an addition of concern to us in red.
     Please fellow TEA PARTY PATRIOTS, take care with such as these who anonymously instigate and propagate hate on the internet.  They are right here next to us!
LINK: http://ctbob.blogspot.com/2011/01/sarah-palin-might-as-well-have-pulled.html 
     Do not be afraid of persons such as CT Bob--whoever he or she is--and his 'respondents', but be aware of them, these who think they can hide in plain sight behind the anonymity of the 'Web'. 
    None of us need to be reminded of all the 'online ramblings', anonymous of course, of shooter Jared Loughner, which no one bothered to bring to any one's attention until AFTER he perpetrated his horrible crimes.
     First anonymous words are used to wound and as happens all too often nowadays, not-so-anonymous bullets are next. 
     I certainly don't want that to be the case here in Connecticut and so I bring this to your attention.
     There is no denying that the gross problems affecting the entire U.S.A. are no where more 'exemplified' than in this very liberal state of CT, to the point that I fear 'fair elections' at this point are now virtually impossible in the aftermath of the 'Bridgeport Ballot' imbroglio.

'Gadsden Flag' of the TEA PARTY PATRIOTS
     Those of us who 'dare to speak' and 'dare to question' and claim our God-given liberties as American citizens, must be ever mindful that there really are those intend to do us harm every day and we must feel sorry for them.
      They speak without thinking and have no authority over their emotions.  They claim to 'know us' when they don't.  They 'indict and condemn us' without care.
LINK: http://ctbob.blogspot.com/2011/01/sarah-palin-might-as-well-have-pulled.html
      Yet we should pray for those poor souls who seek our destruction, even as we pray that God grant us His Vast Protection and Victory this election season.
     And we should stand united to remain ever peaceful, respectful, lawful and forthcoming in truth and openness not in hate as our detractors do, but rather in love, for the good of all in our Nation.
     May Connecticut set the bar for decency of speech and action by the TEA PARTY and others on the 'right' in light of recent speech and actions on 'the left'.
May God Bless Us & God Bless America

"GENENTECH:Injectables Boniva, Fuzeon, Nutropin, Pegasys, and TNKase-Products Affected by Triad Alcohol Prep Products, Now A BAYER PRODUCT TOO (Betaseron)" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

HIV AIDS
Dear Ones:
     Here is an immediate follow-up to my yesterday's article about the huge recall of Triad 70% alcohol prep pads and swabs for use with injectable drugs.
     Triad pads are marketed in the US, Canada and Europe under the following brand names: Triad, Cardinal Health, PSS Select, VersaPro, Boca/ Ultilet, Moore Medical, Walgreens, CVS, Conzellin...and perhaps 'others'.
LINK: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2011/01/contaminated-alcohol-swabs-recalled-in.html
     Unfortunately for consumers of injectable drugs on the consumer level, a number of pharmaceutical companies are now being 'forced' to issue what are known as 'voluntary recalls' of their products which are 'co-packaged' with Triad-manufactured alcohol prep-pads and/or swabs.
     In the world of 'FDA-speak', the term 'voluntary recall' means that a manufacturer acknowledges a problem of some sort. They are 'agreeing' to act 'preemptively' (presumably for the benefit of the medical consumer) so as not to be FORCED to do so through the use of legal action on the part of the FDA.
     Typically, it benefits a manufacturer to 'cooperate' with the FDA (and other regulatory agencies).
     In the case here, Genentech has chosen to include alcohol pads/swabs from a subcontractor and therein lies the conundrum for Genetech and doubtless other companies like it.
     The conundrum is this: While the medical consumer 'reads' that Genetech assures them that the drugs they manufacture themselves are SAFE, they DO acknowledge that the 'alcohol prep pads and swabs' packaged with those drugs MAY NOT BE.
     This, of course, raises the following questions:


1--Why in Heaven's name didn't Genentech DO THEIR OWN INDEPENDENT STERILITY AND STABILITY STUDIES ON THE TRIAD PRODUCTS THEY PACKAGED WITH THEIR PRODUCTS? Or...

2--If Genetech DID DO the above studies on the Triad pads they chose to include in their packaging...WHAT WERE THE RESULTS REGARDING THE EFFICIENCY AND EFFICACY OF THE TRIAD PRODUCTS TO PERFORM ACCORDING TO INDUSTRY STANDARDS?


3...In other words, did anyone at Genentech check to 'see' if the Triad pads they packaged with Genentech's Boniva Injection, Fuzeon, Nutropin A.Q. Pen, Pegasys, and TNKase were actually capable of DOING the job they are meant to do, i.e. to 'work' as a suitable antiseptic on the skin?


4--Perhaps Genentech chose to 'farm out' the Triad Product STERILITY and STABILITY studies to an outside, INDEPENDENT lab. If so, what were the results? Was the testing comprehensive and conclusive? Has this independent lab been 'tested and certified' as meeting the standards for independent testing facilities, which includes maintaining qualified employees?
     I sound like a task-master here and there's a reason for it.
     Much of what I am writing about here is not 'common knowledge'. Consumers need to know these things in order to preserve and maintain their good health.

hepatic cirrhosis/Hepatits C

     These comments stem from my own personal experience working with federal regulatory agencies in the fields of drug and cosmetic manufacturing.
     One thing I constantly emphasize is that we ALL must advocate for ourselves and others in this day and age of 'mixed-messages' and 'signals' on the subjects of Health Care reform and medical coverage and treatment.
     No one will disagree that things can get 'confusing', so please read on and empower yourself.
     First of all, the FDA really does try to protect the consumer, if not literally, in theory at least.
LINK: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm239319.htm
     Secondly, company executives and chief R & D and QC/QA 'officers' are held PERSONALLY ACCOUNTABLE for each and every thing they 'sign off' on. We in the 'scientific community' know that our 'reputations' with the various government alphabet agencies is of the 'cradle-to-grave' type of responsibility.
     This means that the quality and integrity of your work in the lab as far as the feds are concerned travels 'with you' over the course of your career and then some.
     I know, having been interviewed, deposed and 'asked to testify' in cases from years gone past.
     To all young researchers, I say, "Don't sign off on ANYTHING that you are not prepared to vigorously defend at any time in the future. KNOW your stuff and be upstanding and accountable."
     Being a 'chief chemist' as I was is all well and good and calls for a great deal of accountability since I was the one who drafted, tested and 'justified' the 'protocols' our company used for testing in-house.
     Because of that and the fact that we were constantly developing new products, I got to know the FDA (and v.v.) pretty well.
     Eventually, I grew quite 'used' to being 'shadowed' at work and almost enjoyed the 'challenge' of working under such pressure.
     But I was also the LAB SUPERVISOR, which meant that I had to 'sign off' on not just the chemistry part of things, but on the microbiology and hard components (packaging, wound pad material, etc) departments' work, as well.
     My strong micro and biology background served me well and I was capable of understanding what I was called to 'sign-off' on before it got to the 'administration', after which point things were pretty much out of 'the lab's hands'.
     The reason for this is that a company V.P. as well as the President had the power to 'approve' of and 'release' anything at all they chose, no matter what the 'lab' had to say about things.
     I am sure that you, dear Readers, understand that manufacturing is MONEY and that there is a natural 'temptation' to 'okay' product with minor defects.
     Human nature being what it is, unscrupulous manufacturers will do the same even in cases of 'severe defect', for such is the sorry state of our species.
     Not surprisingly, some manufacturers play a game of 'cat and mouse' with the FDA with the hope that no defective product and/or packaging will be detected.
      In most cases, no harm is done and we have all been the victims of purchasing less-than perfect products.
     But there are very real 'cut-off points' where a major health and well-being concern comes into focus. Such is the case where an ALLEGEDLY contaminated alcohol prep pad or swab intended to CLEANSE AN AREA OF SKIN is in circulation.
     I say 'allegedly' because it is unknown at this time whether the Bacillus cereus contamination is widespread through-out all the Triad-manufactured alcohol pads and swabs.
     If so, this means that every pharmaceutical company who 'uses' these Triad pads with their injectables has a major, major recall problem, no matter how much they try to 'tone it down' and I'll tell you why.
     The very fact that 'bad wipes' are packaged with some injectables will make the average consumer wary of the injectable, as well.
     It may be true that all of Genetech's products are, indeed, sterile...but it begs the fact that the accompanying antiseptic pads/swabs may not be. Just what does that say about Genentech's Quality Control over-all?
     In cases like this, I'll tell you what's going on 'behind the scenes'. Genentech is having to inform consumers and keep them up-to-date on the status of their recall situation.
     And the FDA likely is asking about the independent testing of the Triad pads, as in 'did Genentech do any at all, either in-house or by a third party or both?
     The FDA is likely asking Genentech to 'pull their retains' (retained samples) of the following drugs they manufacture:

--Boniva Injection (ibandronate sodium)-used to treat osteoporosis

LINK: http://www.gene.com/gene/products/information/boniva/pdf/Injection_pi.pdf

--Fuzeon (enfuvirtide)-for treatment of HIV-1 infection
LINK: http://www.gene.com/gene/products/information/fuzeon/pdf/pi.pdf

--Nutropin A.Q. Pen (somatropin (rDNA origin)-used to treatment of growth hormone deficiency in children and adults, growth failure associated with chronic renal insufficiency prior to kidney transplantation, short stature associated with Turner syndrome, and long-term treatment of idiopathic short stature.
LINK: http://www.gene.com/gene/products/information/opportunistic/nutropin-aq/insert.jsp

--Pegasys ((Peginterferon alfa-2a)-an 'alpha-interferon' used to treat Hepatitis C
LINK: http://www.gene.com/gene/products/information/pegasys/pdf/pi.pdf

--TNKase ( Tenecteplase)-a 'thrombolytic' or clot-busting agent used in cases of acute myocardial infarction ('heart attack'). TNKase is which is a synthetic form of the well-known naturally derived 't-PA' (tissue plasminogen activator)
LINK: http://www.gene.com/gene/products/information/pdf/tnkase-prescribing.pdf
      
     Genentech will also be asked to retest and provide samples of the raw materials...and especially the WATER...used in then manufacture of the injectables above.
     The FDA will want full micro and chem panels done on these, not so much, perhaps, because the FDA thinks the injectables are contaminated with B. cereus or some other microbe, but because in it's 'voluntary recall notice', Genentech IS STATING THAT 'THEIR PRODUCTS ARE SAFE'....even as they state the Triad pads accompanying their products may not be!
     THE FEDS WILL TELL GENETECH TO 'PROVE IT'.
     Genentech, like Triad, will have to 'prove' they are utilizing 'GMP's--Good Manufacturing Practices, et. al.
     As I've said previously, we don't know of the extent and origin of the Bacillus cereus contamination of Triad-manufactured alcohol prep pads and swabs, but I'm following up on it.
     Perhaps it will 'sizzle out' as a low-grade incident.
     And perhaps not.
     But as it stands today, yet a THIRD recall notice has gone out to a company besides Genentech and that is for Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceutical for it's Betaseron. Also known as interferon beta 1-b), this is ALSO packaged with Triad's 'potentially contaminated' alcohol prep products.
LINK: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm240558.htm 
     Betaseron is used for cases of 'relapsing multiple sclerosis'. By definition, the patients needing Betaseron are ALREADY suffering from improperly functioning immune systems.
      The last thing they need is to contract a cutaneous, subcutaneous or even systemic INFECTION courtesy of contaminated alcohol pads.
     I pray that all parties involved work fairly, swiftly and expediently to remediate this situation so that none are hurt. I pray that the 'best scientific minds' are on this.
     Most of all, I pray that Genentech and Bayer will for once discard their industry's incessant consideration of the bottom-line and 'do right' by the souls who use their products.
     If that requires total product replacement so that patients are comfortable using their injectables, may these drug manufacturers be of good conscience and see to those replacements at no cost to the patients.
     Please be sure to seek the advice of your personal Health care provider with any questions you may have specific to you and your loved ones!*
God Bless & Keep you as strong and healthy as you can be!

"Contaminated Alcohol Swabs Recalled in U.S., Canada & Europe Under Brand Names: Triad, Cardinal Health, PSS Select, VersaPro, Boca/ Ultilet, Moore Medical, Walgreens, CVS, Conzellin Brands PART ONE" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

Dear Ones:
     There is a common misconception that agents such as soaps and alcohol which are intended to clean the skin are impervious to microbial contamination by their very nature.
     FALSE.
     In fact, soap and water solutions can be GREAT culture media for deadly pathogens such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, among others.
     And alcohol used as an antiseptic can similarly be contaminated, in this case below with the microbe known as Bacillus cereus (pronounced bah-SILL-us SEER-ee-us (like 'serious' in English)
     Contrary to the somewhat cavalier tone of Triad's initial voluntary recall notice below, Bacillus cereus can, indeed, cause a nasty skin infection or worse, as will be addressed in Dear Ones Healing Ministry UPDATES in my FREE 2011 NEWSLETTER.
     (Note: You can have all breaking health news sent right to your email box by signing up for Rev. Barb's FREE 2011 HEALTH NEWSLETTER.  Just send your name and email address with 'please send me your Free 2011 Health Newsletter' in the subject line to BarbaraKSexton@aol.com and that's it!  Nothing else is required and no data is collected.  Sign-up now and get important breaking health news explained in an understandable way by 'The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross'.  Don't let your family and other loved ones go 'unprotected', especially with the flu season now fully upon us with spiking activity.)
     Contaminated alcohol swabs used as an antiseptic may not cause a problem on healthy, unbroken skin, but remember that these swabs are usually intended for use with an injectable drug.  This means the skin barrier is breeched, which sends any surface microbes (including disease-causing pathogens ) underneath the skin into the tissue below.
     The subject of 'pathogenicity' (the ability of a microbe to 'infect' someone and cause a disease) is not as straight-forward as the 'cookbook-medicine mentality' traditional medicine would have it be.
     As an example, I give you the various E. coli species.  In the gut, some E.coli species are fine...even desirable... as they assure proper function of our digestive systems.
     But put this E.coli, whatever the sub-species, somewhere else such as in the female urinary and reproductive tract (a not uncommon result of improper wiping, poor hand-washing technique, vigorous sex, unclean undergarments, etc) and infection and disease result. 
     The hapless female ends up with bladder/kidney infection and/or vaginitis.
     Simply put from my alternative medicine perspective (having been trained in traditional biomedicine initially), 'pathogenicity' is most accurately described as having 'the wrong microbe in the wrong place at the wrong time'.
     And you can quote me on that.
     I have personally witnessed awful infections caused by what are generally considered to be 'low-grade' pathogens as a result of 'the wrong microbe in the wrong place at the wrong time.' 
     In fact, in my jump into the world of drug and cosmetic manufacturing, I 'cut my teeth' on a case involving just this, brought in as 'fresh blood' in an interesting case involving products for our military service members in the field, amongst others.
     For various reasons, I see similarities and potential similarities with the Triad alcohol prep pad and swab bacterium in question here and the case I mention above.  Thus I will dissect the current situation with this in mind.
     Just to be clear, the B. cereus species contaminating the Triad products is either yet to be sub-typed by the FDA or if it already has been, awaits disclosure.  The nomenclature "Bacillus cereus" actually covers a wide spectrum of variants, including B. anthracis, also known as Anthrax.
"Bacillus cereus is a Gram-positive, facultatively aerobic sporeformer whose cells are large rods and whose spores do not swell the sporangium. These and other characteristics, including biochemical features, are used to differentiate and confirm the presence B. cereus, although these characteristics are shared with B. cereus var. mycoides, B. thuringiensis and B. anthracis. Differentiation of these organisms depends upon determination of motility (most B. cereus are motile), presence of toxin crystals (B. thuringiensis), hemolytic activity (B. cereus and others are beta hemolytic whereas B. anthracis is usually nonhemolytic), and rhizoid growth which is characteristic of B. cereus var. mycoides."
LINK:  http://www.fda.gov/food/foodsafety/foodborneillness/foodborneillnessfoodbornepathogensnaturaltoxins/badbugbook/ucm070492.htm     The B. cereus family of pathogens are known to infect humans, animals, affecting mainly those who are weak and/or immunocompromised and/or suffer the conequences of  cancer, diabetes, post-transplant, steroid-therapy, etc. and the therapies and treatments thereof.
     Despite some of the sources claiming that B. cereus is relatively 'harmless' causing but mild food-poisoning, the bacterial species affecting Triad alcohol prep pads very much deserves it's place in the FDA's 'BBB' ('Bad Bug Book') LINK: http://www.fda.gov/food/foodsafety/foodborneillness/foodborneillnessfoodbornepathogensnaturaltoxins/badbugbook/ucm070492.htm
     It is a law of microbiology, that soil-born pathogens are amongst the worst of all disease-causing microbes, be they aerobes (needing oxygen to live) or anaerobes (not needing oxygen to live.)
    The irony of a skin antiseptic being a source of contamination itself is obviously manifold.  Many seem to dismiss B. cereus as a major concern when it comes to cutaneous infection, pointing to the fact that this bacterial species primarily causes food-poisoning.
     But to do so insults the reality of known cases of severe cutaneous B. cereus infections all over the world as well as an extensive cutaneous outbreak in healthy military cadets in Georgia.
LINK:  http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5448a3.htm  
     The link above is from the MMWR (Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report) website.  Cases do not get published on or in MMWR unless they are deserving of it, as well I know from the field.
     I'll be dissecting this Triad alcohol prep pad recall situation in a series of articles, including some basic 'background' on the biochemistry of topical antiseptics.  (Note: antiseptics are intended for use on skin and tissues, whereas 'disinfectants' are meant for 'hard', non-living surfaces)
     In fact, there are many factors that are overlooked, misunderstood and misinterpreted regarding wound healing and the use of so-called 'antiseptics' when it comes to wound-healing.
     As it happens, those of us in the field of alternative medicine often 'see' cases of intractable wounds which fail to heal after numerous vigorous attempts by the medical establishment. 
     Question all you want the potions and powders of herbal medicine--they can sometimes work when nothing else will, as in the case of chronic diabetic ulceration.
     And we 'alternative health care providers' were using the amino acid L-lysine in our topical preparations for herpes sufferers long before the drugstore shelves became stocked with the lysine-containing lip balms and ointments commonly available today.
     "In treatment of disease and conditions which do not easily 'resolve', combine the 'best of both' of traditional and alternative medicine", I say. 
     And use the 'best of both', similarly, when confronted with matters such as the Triad Recall under discussion here.
      To begin and to begin understanding how an alcohol antiseptic can become contaminated, it is important to know that it is not so much the alcohol moiety of the prep pads and swabs that it at fault, as it is that of the 'water' component.
     Everyone knows SOAP needs WATER to work properly.  But did you know that the water component is critical in order for the alcohol to 'do it's thing', also?
     It's true.  And it's due to the characteristics of bacterial cell walls and the ability of an antiseptic to act as a 'surfactant' and as a bacterial cell wall 'disruptor',
     Suggestions over the years after the first use of 'carbolic acid' (phenol) were to use high-strength/low water alcohol concentrations such as  90% isopropyl alcohol.
     However, higher alcohol percentage anticeptics met with poorer test results than did preparations with lower alcohol concentrations.  
     They don't kill bacteria as well and are more likely to irritate and damage skin, which can only invite enhanced infection and inhibition of satisfactory wound-healing.  Indeed, it has also been my observation over the years that the use of ever-present 'povidone-iodine' solutions in the treatment of chronic wounds can substantially cause more negative effects on tissue than previously believed.
     Hence, after years of study, most of the alcohol prep pads and swabs in use today contain 70% isopropyl alcohol, which is considered to be an ideal concentration.
     Our skin and everything we touch and live with is contaminated with good and bad microbes. 
     Obviously the last thing we need is for something intended to clean the skin prior to injection to be contaminated with B. cereus, a spore-forming bacteria which can cause chronic and serious skin infections...or with any other microbe, for that matter, pathogen or not.
     We don't need 'the wrong thing in the wrong place at the wrong time'.  Surely, the most innocuous microbe 'injected' below the skin has the potential to cause both cutaneous and systemic infection.
     Worse still, the spores of B. cereus are difficult to kill and a simple alcohol swab will NOT do the job!  In the lab we use the autoclave (steam under pressure) to kill spores. 
     High temperature incineration can also be effective in killing spores, though it is less practical for use in many settings.  Similarly, 'irradiation' is used to sterilize things like bandages and certain medical devices, which begs the question...
     How did Triad alcohol prep pads get contaminated, how many of the recalled pad are contaminated and what is the source of said contamination?  What happened with their raw material, hard component, in-line, final product and 'retains' testing, not to mention 'stability testing'?
     The initial 1/4/11 Triad voluntary recall did not grab my attention initially, but subsequent FDA updates on 1/6/11 and updated 1/14/11 certainly have.
LINK: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm239319.htm 
     Who knows?  Maybe the scope of the B. cereus contamination will be small and limited in scope.  Still, it has the potential to be far-reaching and all I can say is 'caveat emptor'
     This 21st century has seen a plethora of previously 'non-pathogenic and non-ubiquitous' microbial species....including bacteria....evolve into species with grossly increased virulence as pathogens.
     Among these are "Salmonella spp.,Clostridium botulinum, Staphylococcus aureus, Campylobacter jejuni, Yersinia enterocolitica and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, Listeria monocytogenes, Vibrio cholerae O1, Vibrio cholerae non-O1,Vibrio parahaemolyticus and other vibrios, Vibrio vulnificus, Clostridium perfringens, Bacillus cereus, Aeromonas hydrophila and other spp., Plesiomonas shigelloides, Shigella spp,Miscellaneous enterics, Streptococcus, Enterovirulent Escherichia coli Group (EEC Group), Escherichia coli - enterotoxigenic (ETEC), Escherichia coli - enteropathogenic (EPEC), Escherichia coli O157:H7 enterohemorrhagic (EHEC), Escherichia coli - enteroinvasive (EIEC),Parasitic Protozoa and Worms, Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, Cryptosporidium parvum,Cyclospora cayetanensis, Anisakis sp. and related worms, Diphyllobothrium spp., Nanophyetus spp., Eustrongylides sp., Acanthamoeba and other free-living amoebae, Ascaris lumbricoides and Trichuris trichiura, Viruses, Hepatitis A virus, Hepatitis E virus, Rotavirus, Norwalk virus group, Other gastroenteritis viruses, Other Pathogenic Agents, Prions and Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies."
LINK: http://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodSafety/FoodborneIllness/FoodborneIllnessFoodbornePathogensNaturalToxins/BadBugBook/default.htm
     Don't let anyone tell you that microbial contamination of what you use in and on your body is NOT of major concern, ever.
     And don't let a drug-maker tell you that they are exercising 'an abundance of caution', even while acknowledging the seriousness of the contamination of it's products...whatever the extent of it and whatever it's source.
     (Read Triad's 'mixed message' highlighted in green below.)
      Know that B. cereus is also causes chronic skin infections that are difficult to eradicate though less aggressive than necrotizing fasciitis caused by the Streptococcus bacterium.  Most of us are aware of it. 
"Necrotizing fasciitis (occasionally described by the media as "the flesh-eating bacteria") is a rapidly progressive disease which destroys muscles, fat, and skin tissue. LINK: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dbmd/diseaseinfo/groupastreptococcal_g.htm  
      B. cereus can also cause a condition known as 'keratitis'. It is considered to be a pathogen akin tBacillus anthracis known as the infective agent in systemic and cutaneous Anthrax.
    "Bacillus anthracis, Bacillus cereus, and Bacillus thuringiensis are members of the Bacillus cereus group of bacteria.  This determination is not only a formal matter of taxonomy but may also have consequences with respect to virulence and the potential of horizontal gene transfer within the B. cereus group."
LINK: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC110590 
     What this means that it is only a matter of time before plain old B. cereus turns into a virulent rogue pathogen via transfer of genetic material between 'bacterial cousins'.
     It is a law of microbiology that the natural tendency is for a microbe...be it a bacterium, a virus, a prion or whatever to tend to mutate into a state more favorable to it's replication and survival...which means to a more VIRULENT state.
     Of course various factors 'help' this process along, including, but not limited to:
--airline travel which increases exposure risk to all microbes, pathogenic or not
--the use and overuse of pharmacological agents which may inadvertently prompt enhanced mutation rates in microbes
--the 'deliberate or inadvertent' introduction of experimentally manipulated or native 'good' or pathogenic microbes into the environment
--natural disasters which result in the uncovering and or release of microbes long 'hunkered down' such as the the virus responsible for the 1918 (Spanish) Influenza Pandemic.
--continued 'core sampling' and exploration and disruption of the earth's crust by man which have the potential to dislodge long-sequestered microbes resulting in 'surface exposure'.
--cruel, unhygienic 'animal food-farming practices' which provide an ideal state for contamination of the human food supply via 'genetic transfer' between different bacterial species resulting in 'superbugs' which infect animals and then humans
--the use of irrigation water contaminated with 'superbugs' on produce crops intended for human and animal consumption
--the feeding of 'offal' (the entrails, internal organs, i.e. the guts and other undesirable parts left over after processing animals for consumption) to animals themselves
--and last, but not least, acts of God which affect believers and non-believers, alike.
     When B. cereus manifests in it's 'food'born' state, causing what is commonly known as 'food poisoning', it is difficult to distinguish from Clostridium perfringens, also known as the infectious agent which causes 'gas gangrene'.
     "Although no specific complications have been associated with the diarrheal and vomiting toxins produced by B. cereus, other clinical manifestations of B. cereus invasion or contamination have been observed. They include bovine mastitis, severe systemic and pyogenic infections, gangrene, septic meningitis, cellulitis, panophthalmitis, lung abscesses, infant death, and endocarditis."
LINK: http://www.fda.gov/food/foodsafety/foodborneillness/foodborneillnessfoodbornepathogensnaturaltoxins/badbugbook/ucm070492.htm     There is no justification for this attitude at all if even one person is harmed.  Stay tuned for additional articles in my FREE 2011 NEWSLETTER and here online and for additional updates from Triad and the FDA, including my comments on "Genentech Informs Customers Of Important Information"
LINK:  http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm240131.htm    
     Please be careful and check your medical supplies today! 
     In the meantime, use sterile gauze with 70% isopropyl alcohol to wipe-down before injecting, being careful to use as close to 'aseptic technique' as you can.
     Be sure to consult your health care provider for individual advice!
God Bless and Keep You
