"Anecdotal" evidence clearly indicates that birth defects are on the rise in Hawaii and Washington state. It seems obvious -- at least to me -- that these birth defects correlate with radiation poisoning. Yet "experts" can't seem to put the pieces of the puzzle together and many residents are in complete denial as well. Why? Why are we refusing to look at The Truth? Shouldn't the "experts" be doing whatever they can to clean up the environment and warn parents about the dangers of radioactive poisons? How about teaching people how to detox their bodies and their soil from radioactive contamination?
The pain involved in giving birth to a child with birth defects is unmeasurable. And that pain is as much for the parents as it is for the child.
It's time for a revolution in this country. Since they are all refusing to do the right thing, all levels of government need to be extinguished.

Surge in babies born without brains in Washington State
"There is something seriously wrong in the fertile Yakima Valley region of Washington. A surging number of babies are being born with major birth defects, and the reasons why are eluding state health officials.Watch video http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/01/health/cohen-birth-defects/">here:
As reported by CNN, a nurse in the area, Sara Barron, was the first to report on a particularly horrifying condition: anencephaly -- a condition in which babies are born without much of their brain and skull.
"I was just stunned," she told the network in an interview. "Three in a couple-of-month period of time... that’s unheard of, and they have such tragic, terrible outcomes."
Her shocking finding and report eventually prompted an investigation by the state health department. Investigators found some disturbing results.
Over a three-year period, there were 23 cases concentrated in three southern Washington counties -- Yakima, Benton and Franklin. That’s a rate (8.4 per 10,000 live births) that is four times the national average (2.1 per 10,000 live births), CNN reported.
What could be causing such a phenomenon? Is it just one of those weird coincidences, or is something more sinister at play?
Mandy Stahre, with the Washington State Department of Health, conducted the investigation into the high rates of anencephaly. She says she and other investigators are stumped.
"We have not found an answer, and that’s a very frustrating part, because this is such a devastating diagnosis for a woman to have," she told CNN.
Barron, however, says she wonders if state health authorities did not find anything because they didn’t look hard enough at all possible causes.
’We have to weigh how invasive we want to be’
For one thing, she said, the health department has not spoken to any of the parents of the babies who had birth defects. So they don’t know what the parents may have eaten, or what environmental conditions they have been exposed to, or what kind of chemicals or substances they all might have come in contact with -- like, perhaps, the pesticides that are routinely sprayed in the heavily agricultural region in which they live.
Andrea Jackman, whose daughter Olivia was born with spina bifida, another type of neural tube defect, said she wasn’t asked anything by state investigators.
"Nobody’s asked me anything," she told the network.
So, exactly how did the state conduct its investigation? Stahre said investigators examined data in each parent’s medical record -- what sort of prescription drugs they were taking and preexisting medical conditions.
"The study examined medical records from January 2010 through January 2013 and looked at possible risk factors including family history, pre-pregnancy weight, health risk behaviors such as supplemental folic acid and medication use, and whether the woman’s residence received drinking water from a public or private source. No significant differences were found when comparing cases of anencephaly with healthy births in the three county area," said a health department press release.
"But medical records don’t have details about diet or pesticide exposure," CNN’s Elizabeth Cohen reported, "two key considerations for this type of birth defect."
Indeed, the health department -- in its press release -- even admitted: "Medical record reviews might not have captured all information, preventing a cause from being identified."
So why not talk to the mothers?
"Well, we have to weigh that," said Stahre. "This is a devastating diagnosis, and we know that for a lot of these women, they had to make some hard choices. We do have to weigh about how invasive we want to be with these types of reviews."
Engineered end of humanity?
At least one mother -- Jackman -- said she would have "been fine" with being questioned. She wants answers so that other mothers don't have to go through the same thing.
On the surface, this looks like yet another example of poisoning that Natural News editor and founder Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, wrote about recently when he said humanity doesn't stand a chance of surviving this onslaught of corporate-sponsored genocide:
After having now analyzed over 1,000 foods, superfoods, vitamins, junk foods and popular beverages for heavy metals and other substances at the Natural News Forensic Food Labs, I have arrived at a conclusion so alarming and urgent that it can only be stated bluntly.
Based on what I am seeing via atomic spectroscopy analysis of all the dietary substances people are consuming on a daily basis, I must now announce that the battle for humanity is nearly lost. The food supply appears to be intentionally designed to end human life rather than nourish it.

Mysterious cluster of birth defects stumps doctors

Aloha Governor, Legislators, Health & Ag Depts.
I wanted to pass on this update on one of the five Kaua'i infants, (that I know of, - plus two more on Maui) born with their intestines outside of their bodies. (gastroschisis) These babies will have to undergo many surgeries to correct the problem. Five of these cases are too many for a small island. Something is wrong - a state of emergency should be declared.
These young families have had to leave Hawai'i for care they can't get here. Alone in a strange land dealing with life threatening emergencies to their babies, with little family support - through no fault of their own.
You may want to look away and not believe it - but there are many credible studies linking this horrendous injustice that is happening on Kaua'i, right now... to atrazine and a witches brew of toxic chemicals sprayed on Kaua'i almost daily. And this is not even mentioning the many reports of seizures, birth defects, (THAT OUR HEALTH DEPARTMENT HAS FAILED TO TRACK for nearly ten years!) ...and the cancers.
This is just ONE true story of what our legislature is ALLOWING to happen. It's as sickening as it is insane. We are monsters - if we do nothing, and look the other way.
I can't begin to tell you how sad and angry this photo makes me feel. What is happening to the people of Kaua'i, (Molokai, Maui, & O'ahu) is inhumane.
Shame on us if we do not DEMAND some answers from our 'leaders'.

MAHALO KE AKUA!!! HIS SURGERY WENT AWESOME!!
ARROW IS A SOLDIER!!! His surgery was 5 hours long and his Atresia (constricted section of bowel) was removed!
He lost quite a bit of blood and so he did have to endure a blood transfusion which went well. He also had his appendix removed and so that is one less problem that we will have to deal with later.
He is heavily sedated and had a "G" tube placed into his abdomen as well. So hopefully he wont need the "G" tube for long as it is only in there as a precautionary in case he rejects the breast milk (which I really think he's not). And in that case can be removed very easily. I figure better to have one and not need one then need one and not have one. Because if say he did need one and was rejecting the food, it would be a major surgery putting one back in after all this surgery just went down. And I'm over cutting him up anymore!
He is on pain meds and a breathing tube as well. Breathing tube is temporary till his swelling comes down. Since he is so fresh out of surgery they don't want him moving around too much. The doctor said that if everything continues to go that way it has been, then we may be able to give him his first real meal next week Wednesday! We cant wait to start feeding him! Momma has milk for days!! Freezers full!
It's still too early to give a date on when we might come home. Its all depends on how his little stomach handles his food. One day at a time. Baby steps, Let the road to recovery begin!
Anywayz we ( Madison Strecker , Arrow, and I) just wanted to say thank you for all the prayers and Aloha that all of you have been sending our way! I really want to say and extra special Mahalo to the Desert Banner NICU team! All the nurses have been amazing and a real big Mahaloz to Dr. Greenfield for getting some good rest and performing an awesome surgery on my son!
I'M SOOOO PROUD OF MY SON!! LOVE YOU ARROW!!! LOVE YOU MADDY!! LOVE ALL YOU GUYS!!! MAHALO KE AKUA!!!

"I know at least 2 babies on Maui in the last year that had the same thing. My friends doctor told them it was becoming more and more common."
