OBEY CIHR / OBEY Kangaroo Court

par CCSVI in MS Toronto, mardi 7 septembre 2010, à 19:27


"A kangaroo court or kangaroo trial is a colloiqual term for a sham legal proceeding or court. The outcome of a trial by kangaroo court is essentially determined in advance, usually for the purpose of providing a conviction, either by going through the motions of manipulated procedure or by allowing no defense at all.


A kangaroo court's proceedings deny due process rights in the name of expediency. Such rights include the right to summon witnesses, the right of cross-examination, the right not to incriminate oneself, the right not to be tried on secret evidence, the right to control one's own defense, the right to exclude evidence that is improperly obtained, irrelevant or inherently inadmissible, e.g., hearsay, the right to exclude judges or jurors on the grounds of partiality or conflict of interest, and the right of appeal."




What the CIHR group did on August 26th was essentially set-up their meeting like a Kangaroo Court. Alain Beaudet, the head of the CIHR, said that anybody that expressed public interest in support of CCSVI was excluded from the committee meeting, where they unanimously voted to block CCSVI trials in Canada.


It looks like the decision to block CCSVI research was essentially made up, before they even voted. It was a sham.


There are too many conflicts of interest at play here. 


Now they want you to OBEY.

Lambert, Grandy going for Liberation Treatment

Marjorie Lambert and Raymond Grandy, two residents of Harbour Breton who are multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, are eagerly looking forward to October 25 of this year.

The residents are scheduled to be in Tychy, southern Poland, on that date to undergo the Liberation Treatment which is a basic standard angiography in which doctors use balloons to open up blocked or twisted arteries that flush blood from the brain.

The ‘Liberation Treatment, was pioneered by Dr. Paolo Zamboni of Ferrara, Italy about three years ago. Dr. Zamboni became particularly interested in MS, a disease that attacks a person’s central nervous system that often sees a progression of disability over time, because his wife, Elena, was a patient.

Dr. Zamboni found that scientists who had studied the brains of MS patients had noticed higher levels of iron in their brains that was not accounted for by old age.

Apparently, iron is very dangerous because it produces free radicals, which are killers for cells.

He also found that some patients’ veins that transport blood from the brain were twisted and blocked. These blocked veins may cause blood to flow backwards into the brain, depositing high levels of iron. Deposits of iron are toxic in the brain and may set off a series of immune reactions leading to MS.

Dr. Zamboni called the vein disorder Chronic Cerebral Spinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) and thought that if key veins of MS patients were blocked, perhaps he could open them and restore normal blood flow and reduce the symptoms of MS.

From this idea’s birth about three years ago, thousands of MS patients around the world have undergone the “Liberation Treatment’, as it’s come to be known as, to relieve their MS symptoms.

Although the procedure is not considered an official cure for MS, nearly all patients who have undergone the procedure have seen improvements in their lives to some degree.

Lambert and Grandy, MS patients for a long time, want to be among the thousands seeking improvements in their lives.

Marjorie Lambert

Although Lambert, 58, was diagnosed with MS in 1999, she has been a victim of MS, in her view, since 1977.

Lambert said, “MS struck me with really bad headaches when I was 26. The attacks would wear off and I’d feel good again.”

Over the years, she went through period of attacks and relapses and raised a family of five with her husband, Tom.

However, three years go MS struck her again and the symptoms stayed.

She said, “This past winter MS really hit me hard. I’ve only been out of the house two to three times since January and then it was to see a doctor. Today I can’t walk, and I become tired very quickly and I’m tired most of the time.

“I have no strength in my legs and the strength is gone from my left hand. I like to read, but I’m having trouble even turning the pages in a book right now. I just sit and watch TV most of the day.

“I hear people say when it’s been foggy or raining for several days that they’d like to see the sun come out. I don’t care if the sun doesn’t come out at all as I can’t get outdoors to enjoy it.

“ My son, Harold was home in Easter with their child who was born in February. I couldn’t even hold the child, as I was so weak. I could hold the baby when they came back in July but even then someone had to sit by me on the chesterfield in case I became weak again.”

For all the above, and many other reasons, Lambert is looking forward to her Liberation Treatment in October.

“I’m afraid to be too confident or optimistic, but so many years of my life have been wasted really because there were so many things I couldn’t do. You don’t realize how much you miss simple things in life like going to a grocery store until you can’t do it.

“I’m pretty well confined to my home now, and if I don’t do something my condition is only going to get worse. This is not a life I’m living now. I’m just existing. I want to get my life back to some degree and get back to living again.”

Raymond Grandy

Raymond Grandy was officially diagnosed with MS in September 2008 but said that his MS symptoms started showing up long before that.

Grandy was an inshore fish harvester who worked up to two years ago when his MS forced him to ‘get out of the boat’. Like Lambert, he is pretty much confined to his home today, as he has to walk with a cane and has trouble with dizziness and his balance, which can cause unexpected falls.

He said, “I could work with very little sleep at one time while now I sleep 14 to 15 hours on some days as I’m tired most of the time. I also suffer from almost constant headaches which can be really bad.”

One of the symptoms of MS is balance problems and dizziness and this condition really applies to Grandy.

“I’d be out in the boat and just fall down. It was like my legs had gone right out from under me. I fell down while in my basement and broke my hip. Again, my legs seemed to go in an instant.”

While some doctors in Canada and the United States are skeptical of the Liberation Treatment, Grandy said that he is very willing to give it a try.

“The way I size it up is that I haven’t got many years left, so if I can get a few more good ones, why not take it?

“I just want to improve the quality of my life. I used to enjoy trouting, salmon fishing and moose hunting. I haven’t been able to do any of these things for the past 15 years.

“I’ve got to take this chance. I figure if it doesn’t work, it won’t hurt me either.”

Linda, Raymond’s wife, said that the procedure will be worth it even if it cures the constant headaches and ends the endless fear of falling.

She said, “Only one of our eight grandchildren have seen Raymond as he was years ago – being a prankster and having fun with the children. I’d be happy if the procedure put him back to where he was even 10 years ago.”

Michael Duffy

One of those Newfoundlanders who ‘took this chance’ of having the new procedure for MS was St. John’s lawyer Michael Duffy who had the angioplasty done in Sofia, Bulgaria on June 3 of this year.

Duffy said, “I feel fantastic today. Before the procedure I was fatigued pretty much all the time even though I kept working. I’d be exhausted by the end of the day. But now I don’t feel that way at all.

“I had to walk using a cane but now I don’t need it. Before my vision was kind of unsteady but now it’s good again.

“Each individual with MS has to make a personal choice about having the procedure. My personal view is that everyone with this condition confirmed should go for the treatment as soon as possible before their symptoms cause more damages.

“As for the skeptics, I say it’s worked for 3,000 plus people who’s had the treatment. Between Mark Lane and myself we’ve communicated with hundreds of people who have had the treatment completed. I haven’t personally spoken to one who said it did nothing for them

“Dr. Zamboni’s research and work proposes a theory on what causes MS, so we know now what the trigger is. So, it appears that once we remove the trigger (blocked arteries that flush iron out of the brain) we remove the damages.

“So, I don’t really care what the skeptics say. The operation is a non-invasive procedure that seems to be able to help MS patients get their lives back. I know that it worked for me.”

The Liberation Treatment, so called because it can set MS patients free from a progressively debilitating disease, is a procedure that involves three options – Balloon Angioplasty, Balloon Angioplasty with stents and Venous Grafting. The latter procedure involves taking a saphinous vein from the patient’s leg and grafting it on to the diseased Jugular Vein where stenting is not an option. After surgery, patients spend about a week undergoing a customized MS Rehabilitation Session before heading home."
