Yekra Player

Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.



The hidden story about vaccines, autism, drugs and food… Americas health has been BOUGHT. Your health, your family’s health. Now brought to you by Wall Street… “If you thought they hurt us with the banks, wait till you see what they’re doing to health care.” Vaccines. GMOs. Big Pharma. Three big, BIG, okay… HUGE topics in one film. Why? Why not 3 films, why put all this in one movie? Great question, 2 answers. 1st and most importantly: We need to band together. We need a mainstream film, not another radical movie that only interests the “already converted”. Over 5 million people supported Prop 37 in CA. Reportedly, over 2 million worldwide marched against Monsanto in a global protest. There...ane vaccine expansion, and our love affair with pharmaceuticals- it’s the same villain. It’s a risky story to tell, but would be a tragedy to passively consent to with silence. There is something horribly wrong with health care today. Huge money, billions and billions of dollars flowing into the same pockets. Meanwhile, MD’s aren’t being allowed to actually practice the art of medicine and anyone who questions vaccination safety, pharmaceuticals, factory farms, etc. is ridiculed and belittled. Meanwhile, the billions keep flowing, carried on a river of pain and anguish. Huge corporations funded by individual misery, one broken life at a time. Three huge stories, each worthy of multiple films, but each brought together by one staggering fact: it’s the same villain. These three story lines converge on Wall Street, in a tale of corruption, greed and shocking lack of conscience.

It is the first death to be linked to the new Pandemrix jab and comes on top of a further 1,329 reports of suspected adverse reactions in just four weeks. But experts investigating the death say it was likely to have been caused by the patient’s ‘significant underlying health conditions’ rather than the vaccine itself. ... There have been two cases of anaphylactic shock, one child experienced arthritis and two had seizures, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said. A link to the jab has not been established. A Department of Health spokesman said: 'There are no concerns about these reports.'"

On the upside, it has also created a more open debate about vaccinations in general. The childhood vaccination schedule is in dire need of an overhaul, and the swine flu hysteria has actually opened many people’s eyes to the unhealthy practices behind our vaccine policies. The public is finally starting to wonder and question, en masse, what’s being injected into them and their children."

The tax would be assessed based on the companies' sales of the vaccine through government programs."

* ►November 21, 2009 - Experts 'expected' new swine flu strain - - "Experts say they are not surprised that a strain of drug-resistant swine flu has emerged among people with underlying health problems. Professor Peter Openshaw, a respiratory physician at Imperial College London, said the five patients at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff who were diagnosed with Tamiflu-resistant swine flu would have been more susceptible because their immune systems were not working properly. He said: 'The important thing now is to emphasise the value of vaccination. Just because there is resistance to Tamiflu does not mean there is resistance to (anti-viral drug) Relenza/Zanamivir.'"

The immune cells do not attack cells they recognize as self. But Sercarz discovered that there are buried regions of surface proteins, called cryptic determinants, that can trigger an immune response if they are exposed. A viral or bacterial attack can, in a susceptible individual, expose these cryptic determinants, triggering an autoimmune attack such as that found in lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and diabetes. He also discovered the phenomenon known as determinant spreading, in which white blood cells that begin the autoimmune reaction recruit other white cells to join in and also attack cells to expose other cryptic determinants, strengthening the immune attack and making the disease more severe."

The family flew to Bethesda Hospital in Maryland where [Lance Cpl. Josef] Lopez remained in the ICU for three weeks.
