Thyroid Doctors Under Attack

by Leisa on April 28, 2010

This is another article about what is happening with the medical system in Britain, but it is certainly reflected here in Australia.  This article came through from Mary Shomon from thyroid.about.com and very similar situations have happened here in Australia. It astounds me how much power the Australian Medical Association has, and how much they

by Leisa on April 16, 2010

We don’t seem to have as many chemtrails here in Australia as there seem to be in America and Europe, but if anyone has read much about them, they always appear to be a bit of a mystery. This letter appeared in Feb / March edition of Nexus Magazine, and it certainly gives some food
