We The ‘Mothers Against The Drugging of Children’, To Medical Practitioners, SSRI Anti-Depressant Drugs, Vaccinations & ADHD

Special Notice

The following Notice is submitted in confidence and without prejudice or defamation intent.

Dear Medical Practitioners,
We the ‘Mothers Against the Drugging of Children’ are writing to pre inform you of events unfolding in America and England; and to offer you a DVD and CD of Scientific Research and Information relating to the adverse reactions resulting from, SSRI Anti-Depressant Drugs and Vaccinations.

We also wish to express our deep concerned at the epidemic of Australian children being misdiagnosed with ADHD. These children are consequently prescribed Anti-depressant SSRI medication by some Medical Practitioners without firstly being given a thorough examination to include, blood testing for deficiencies such as iron, dietary investigation for malnutrition, reactions to chemical additives in food or reaction to family trauma of separation or other such traumatic events that may be occurring or has occurred in their lives.

Current statistics reveal that in excess of 249,000. Australia Children have been administered SSRI Medication, acknowleged to be more dangerous than Cocaine or Speed. (Statistics on CD.)

We are also aware that many Medical Practitioners are pressured into prescribing such medication by parents, schools, counselors psychologists, psychiatrists and other well-meaning individuals who have diagnosed children as having a Mental Disease such as ADHD, where in fact no such disease exists. ( See evidence on CD.)

In order to relate the serious and dangerous nature of SSRI medication, may we quote from results of Eli Lilly’s new anti-psychotic drug Zyprexa.

“Eli Lilly s highly touted new anti-psychotic, Zyprexa, reveals much about the collision between corporate interests and the health and safety of children. In clinical trials averaging 6 weeks, Zyprexa was tested in 2,500 adults. The drug was linked to serious, in some cases life-threatening side effects requiring hospitalization in 22% of those tested.... During those 6-week clinical trials there were 20 deaths, of which 12 were suicides.

David Healy, who found a suicidal link to antidepressants (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) in his research says, as far as he can establish, the data from these trials demonstrate... a higher death rate on Zyprexa than on any other antipsychotic ever recorded. In 2000, FDA approved Zyprexa for
short-term use only, in bi-polar patients.” (Full report included on Disc.)

Another concern is the dangerous substances contained within vaccines administered in good faith to Australian children. One such substance, Thimerosal contains dangerous levels of Mercury, which have been creating various degrees of brain paralysis in trusting parent’s precious children for many generations. The side effects in children have included; death, complete loss of body and brain function, becoming intellectual handicapped, autism, various impairments, asthma, elegies, the list is extensive. (Evidence on CD.)

Exert from FOX 6 Investigators.

“The preservative Thimerosal contains about 50% mercury by weight and is
labeled "very toxic." It is used in multi-dose vials of flu vaccine to prevent bacterial contamination. The US Centers for Disease Control, American Academy of Pediatrics, and US Food and Drug Administration recommended in 1999 that vaccine manufacturers remove mercury from childhood vaccines to help reduce kids' overall exposure to mercury.” (Full report included on Disc.)

“The problem of infant vaccination is one of the great social, economic and spiritual problems of our day. Taught for more than a century and a half as an infallible remedy in medical schools, both public and governments have accepted it as if it were a well-established scientific principle, instead of being, in the words of Dr. Creighton, historian of epidemic diseases, “a grotesque superstition.” Guylaine Lanctot, M.D. stated that sometime in the future, “we will know that the biggest crime against humanity was vaccines.” Richard Moskowitz M.D. said, “Vaccines have become sacraments of our faith in biotechnology in the sense that 1) their efficacy and safety are widely seen as self-evident and needing no further proof; 2) they are given automatically to everyone, by force if necessary, but always in the name of the public good; and 3) they ritually initiate our loyal participation in the medical enterprise as a whole.” From the book ‘Cry of the Heart 2’. (Full book included on Disc.)

While these facts and statistics may not have been or currently are not in the foremost awareness of well intentioned and devoted medical practitioners, never the less, future criminal investigations into malpractice and class actions are successfully being pursued in America and Britain, are presently gathering momentum in Australia.

A Medical Practitioner who neglects to correctly diagnose by way of complete physical, dietary and life trauma analysis and neglects to advise or provide information to each patient re the content and possible side effects prior to prescribing any medication, or vaccinating, is committing a violation of the clients Human Rights together with a breach of the Physicians and Medical Practitioners Act.

Such a Medical Practitioner while not directly responsible for the hazardous content of medications, has a Duty of Care and Responsibility to the trusting Patient and therefore becomes a co-conspirator and liable for any damage or side effects what-so-ever experienced by their Patient. Co-conspirators may also include any person, organisation or institution that promotes or enforces such.

In order to avoid a future investigation or prosecution by either the patients, parents, a Commission or by class-action as is now the case in America and England, may we suggest that you examine the records of all YOUR clients prescribed Anti-depressant medication and vaccinations and if necessary recall them for re-evaluation or check-ups of the above-mentioned in accordance with the Medical Practitioners Code.

According to the Past President of the Australian Medical Association, Dr Kerryn Phelps, told a seminar in Sydney in February 2000[2]:

“There is no doubt that in the United States, Britain, Australia and many other countries medical negligence cases are on the increase[1]. In Australia, this has produced conflicting proposals.”

You are hereby invited to join the growing list of ethical Medical Practitioners, who have signed an enclosed acknowledgement of having received and read the scientific information pertaining to the of SSRI BRAIN and MIND ALTERING MEDICATION prescribed to Children and unsuspecting adults as well as the information on vaccines. These Doctors have promised to uphold their Hippocratic Oath.

We wish to thank you for your time taken to read, your ethics to apply and courage to sign and return the enclosed Ethics Register.

Please also find enclosed a DVD containing educational Scientific Research and Information.

Yours sincerely,

Susana Smith

After receiving a 50-year "distinguished fellow award" from the American Psychiatric Association in May, 2004, Alex Braiman, M.D. a practicing psychiatrist, wrote a letter acknowledging that the APA's "advocacy of unsupported "biologic" diagnostic and treatment practices [ ] corrode its efficacy and leadership."

Furthermore, Dr. Braiman wrote:
As Drs. Mosher and Braiman acknowledged: psychiatry's claims about "chemical imbalances" and its reliance on ineffective, even hazardous drugs are anything but science-based. Psychiatry's practice guidelines were written by psychiatrists contracted by drug manufacturers who are now being sued for fraudulent marketing and concealment of evidence that their drugs harm children.
As Dr. Braiman acknowledges, the Big Lie has been perpetrated, not just by Big Pharma, but by leading opinion shapers in psychiatry--all of whom are paid by drug manufacturers.

It is ironic that we are witnessing serious challenges to the scientific integrity of studies supporting the FDA approval of the SSRI class of antidepressants at a time when an unsilent majority of us go along with the pretense that this is evidence-based psychiatry.

The editors of Lancet wrote in the April 4 issue that "selective reporting of favourable research should be unimaginable."

Dr. Joseph Glenmullen,* a national authority on antidepressants, who teaches at Harvard Medical School and has a private practice at Harvard Square, will be featured as well. Dr. Glenmullen's latest book has just been released: The Antidepressant Solution: A Step by Step Guide to Safely Overcome Antidepressant Withdrawal, Dependency, and "Addiction."

Because antidepressants can make patients violent as well as suicidal, Dr. Glenmullen says that it is very important for patients and physicians to be aware that withdrawal symptoms may occur. The Antidepressant Solution offers physicians guidelines on how to monitor patients and ensure their safety.

Eli Lilly had its public relations firm orchestrate a covert media campaign in an effort to discredit Dr. Glenmullen. Academic psychiatrists who sent negative comments concealed their financial ties to Lilly-just as they have helped conceal clinical trial evidence.

However, despite those underhanded tactics, Prozac Backlash was a best-selling book that helped hundreds of thousands of patients- Dr. Glenmullen's truth telling has been vindicated by the suppressed evidence that continues to come to public light.

Dr. Glenmullen has recently joined the board of directors of The Alliance for Human Research Protection.

Independent assessments have been made at two UK Universities and it has been presented twice to the MHRA for critical review. No flaws in the logic and methodology of the IMR patient flow model system have been found.

It has been known by Pharma since1985 and now sadly by many thousands of victims, that every person, healthy or depressed, adult or child, who starts an SSRI, faces a finite risk of drug induced suicide and other harm in the first weeks of use. (Teicher and Cole, 1993)

Since 1988, 68 million Americans have used Paxil, Prozac and Zoloft. Using a most conservative excess suicide rate, at least 21 thousand avoidable suicides may have been induced, without any warnings to the victims or their families.

Total of Paxil medication for each year has been used to produce this image of patient growth. A total of 5.8 billion Paxil tablets (of all dose values) have been consumed in various quantities by 18.5 million US citizens during the last 10 years.

Table 2 (below) gives the number of suicides that may have been induced in this population of 18.5 million Americans at risk after Paxil was introduced. It does not include the additional suicides that may have been induced when patients attempted to withdraw after long use A range of net rates between 32 and 104 induced suicides per 100K patients starting Paxil has been used to calculate a range of total deaths. These rates have been derived from clinical data recently released by GSK.(Glaxo Smith Klein) These rates are very conservative and are far lower than the net rates measured in earlier randomised clinical trials (RCTs), (1990, 1991) and in epidemiological studies, typically 180-200/100K in excess of placebo.

From table 2, in 2002 over 3 million Americans became new users of Paxil and therefore faced a net risk of induced suicide that is unlikely to be lower than 32/100K and quite probably is higher than 104/100K. Thus somewhere between 987 and 3168 excess suicides may have occurred due to Paxil. But whatever the total, it was not zero, several hundred Americans died who were not warned of the possible outcome that has been known and denied by the manufacturer for so long.

There is a simple analogy with another industry that demands two questions. Assuming the lowest rate (32/100K) would the FAA support an airworthiness certificate for a certain aircraft type, that for 10 years consistently crashed and killed 300 to 1000 passengers per year and injured many others? How would the FAA react if the aircraft manufacturer consistently blamed the crashes on the passengers but not the aircraft?

Prevention from Lawsuits

Text of AHRP Amicus Brief filed with the Maryland Court of Appeals in support of the Court's ruling against Kennedy Krieger Institute for exposing children to lead poison in an experiment. The Court of Appeals Decision Validates AHRP's Stand Against Using Children in Harmful Research Experiments.

This honorable Court's enlightened and responsible decision in the matter of Ericka Grimes v. Kennedy Krieger Institute, Inc. and Myron Higgins, A Minor, Etc., et. al. v. Kennedy Krieger Institute, Inc. is, above all, a clarion call for restoration of common sense, ethical sensitivity and professional integrity to the medical research enterprise. We applaud the Court's discerning decision and respectfully submit this brief in the hope that safeguards to protect the health and well-being of medical research subjects - whether adults or children - will be clarified, fortified, and implemented.

This Court's decision will have a profound impact on the medical research enterprise by restoring humane and ethical standards to the conduct of medical research, demonstrating respect for the subjects of research, and providing safeguards for the most vulnerable. We fervently hope that this court's clearly articulated, sound and incisive decision will ensure that ethical standards will be implemented rather than circumvented. We also hope that this morally reassuring decision will serve to re-instill public trust in this critically important arena. Research is necessary and valued; it must be conducted in accordance with those ethical principles that distinguish this nation.

The Court is to be applauded for challenging the deficiencies in the medical research approval and oversight process. Whereas the research establishment and its stakeholders would have us believe that the rights of individual human subjects are well protected by Institutional Review Boards (IRB), this Court has rightfully recognized that IRBs are "primarily, in-house organs" which are neither designed to be objective nor are they "sufficiently concerned with the ethicality of the experiments they review as they are with the success of the experiments." The Court astutely observed that
"failure in the informed consent process leads to serious inequities in research, specifically for the poor and less educated who bear most of the research burden [and that] the problem is perpetuated in pediatrics, where parents who volunteer their children were found to be significantly less educated and under represented in the professional and managerial occupations compared to their non-volunteering counterparts."

Most importantly, this Court has courageously challenged the assignment of unlimited authority to those who profit from the research enterprise by noting that "the scientific and medical communities cannot be permitted to assume sole authority to determine ultimately what is right and appropriate in respect to research projects involving young children."

We pray for the Court's indulgence in reference to any legal deficiencies in form or content that may be noted in this brief. We are not attorneys or legal scholars, but we wish to provide the court with additional evidence that may prove helpful in judicial deliberations. Please also note that while we make reference to various documents throughout this document, rather than burdening the Court with excessive paperwork, we have proffered citations. Upon request, we would be pleased to provide copies of the cited documents.

Overarching Legal Protections Regarding the Parent-Child Relationship

The Supreme Court of the United States was unanimously of the view that "the interest of parents in their relationship with their children is sufficiently fundamental to come within the finite class of liberty interests protected by the Fourteenth Amendment," Santosky v. Kramer , 455 U.S., at 774 (Rehnquist, J., dissenting). It also held that the right to rear and protect one's child is "an interest more precious than any property right," Santosky v. Kramer, 455 U.S., at 745, 758-759.

Children are increasingly being targeted for experiments, including those at the heart of the instant case, that are not in their best interests and which are as likely to harm them as to provide any benefit. We recognize that to include children in clinical trials presents a dilemma of truly Solomonic proportions. While certain types of medical research promise meaningful benefits, children are among those at highest risk of harm and exploitation if adequate safeguards are absent. Children cannot exercise their right to "voluntary, informed, comprehending and competent consent" to medical experimentation required under the Nuremberg Code, [1] nor can they protect themselves from risks in unwanted, painful biomedical experiments that are contrary to their best medical interests.

Two Signal Examples

"Cerebrospinal fluid homovanillic acid predicts behavioral response to stimulants in 45 boys with ADHD," is an experiment conducted at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) on six-year-old children who were loosely diagnosed with "conduct oppositional disorder."
The children were subjected to painful lumbar punctures, without medical justification, but simply to test a questionable hypothesis. [2]

Preschool ADHD Treatment Study (PATS) is a controversial, federally sponsored drug experiment [3, 4, 5] conducted at multiple sites (including, coincidentally, Johns Hopkins University). Even Dr. Lawrence Greenhill, the principal investigator, acknowledges that ADHD is "not a well-defined psychiatric disorder in this age group."

[6] Yet, children as young as three years old are being recruited to test a psychotropic drug whose safety and long-term consequences for young children is unknown. Parents are offered financial incentives [7] — $645 (beyond travel expenses) — if their child completes the protocol. [The case is discussed elsewhere in this brief.]

Federal policy adopted in 1983 [8] has protected children from non-essential, invasive, painful medical experiments that are not in their personal best interests by restricting their inclusion in experiments that involve: "greater than minimal risk and no prospect of direct benefit to individual subjects." [45 CFR 46.406] Until now, FDA acknowledges on its website, phase I studies which test for the first time the safety of new drugs in humans, were mostly conducted on healthy, normal, adult volunteers, or on patients with life-threatening conditions. In the past, phase I studies in children "had been primarily limited to life threatening diseases and children who had the disease for which the new drug was being proposed." [ http://www.fda.gov/cder/pediatric/pedethics-1199.htm ]

That posture has changed. On April 19, 2000, the FDA adopted a policy broadening the regulatory definition of "potential benefit" to include virtually all healthy children "who are not patients in pediatric pharmaceutical research." According to these new FDA guidelines, "any child has the potential to benefit from a treatment for otitis media" (i.e., ear infection); therefore, every child is available for recruitment into drug trials.

[ http://www.fda.gov/cder/pediatric/ethics-statement.htm ] This policy, the FDA acknowledges, "has led to an increasing number of proposals for studies of safety and pharmacokenetics, including those in children who do not have the condition for which the drug is intended." http://www.fda.gov/cder/pediatric/pedethics-1199.htm

It is noteworthy — and certainly not coincidental — that the shift in policy followed upon passage of 1997 federal law extending patent rights to pharmaceutical companies [9] that test their drugs on children in controlled clinical trials. Neither appellees, nor their member research institutions, nor Federal oversight agencies (FDA, National Institute of Health (NIH), Office of Research Protections (OHRP, formerly OPRR)) informed Congress that existing regulatory protections for children were wholly inadequate.

Nor was Congress informed about systemic ethical violations [10] and evidence of preventable, research related adverse (sometimes fatal) consequences. Since 1997, a continuing stream of scandals has been uncovered by the media, revealing how vulnerable individuals are harmed and exploited in the absence of effective federal oversight and enforcement mechanisms.

Ethical standards for including children in clinical research are explicated in international codes and declarations. Even more detailed consideration was given to this issue by the Advisory Commission on Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE). In its Final Report [11] (1994), the Commission expressed concern about the 30- year record of abuse of children in unethical, harmful, federally sponsored experiments including some conducted with parental consent. ACHRE emphasized the need for specific protections for those who are not in a position to give autonomous, legally valid consent to research (children and the disabled). Their recommendations questioned the legitimacy of parental permission for non-therapeutic research involving risks of harm:

"Where the research does not offer any prospect of benefit to the child, however, the legitimacy of the parent as authorizer is less clear Respect for the authority of parents to make decisions for their children and otherwise control their children's lives is not without bounds. The law recognizes several exceptions, designed primarily to protect the child from what society at large considers to be unacceptable or unjustifiable harm or risk of harmIn the context of research, the question arises of whether a parent Highest Court in Maryland Validates AHRP's Position in Decision to Affirm Federal Prohibition on Non-Therapeutic Experimentation on Children. has the authority to permit a child to be put at risk of harm in an experiment from which the child could not possibly benefit medically. In this case, the child is to be used as a means to the ends of others." [11]

The Commission indicated clearly that such a use of children could not be rendered morally acceptable. We applaud the Maryland Court of Appeals for affirming in clear and straightforward language the fundamental distinction between "therapeutic" and "non-therapeutic" research, a distinction that has been sustained by the World Medical Association. [12] The distinction is recognized and understood by professionals and laymen alike. Appellees and their bio-ethicists, who are themselves beneficiaries of the medical research enterprise, [13] have been actively campaigning to eliminate that distinction by disingenuously claiming it is illogical. [14] Their real goal is to blur all indices of attendant risks that might limit the inclusion of children and incapable adults in non-therapeutic experiments.

The Court rightly recognized that "therapeutic" research is intended to benefit the individual research subject, and "non-therapeutic" research is not. The Court's thoughtful evaluation of the instant case led it to conclude correctly that: "Nothing about the research was designed for treatment of the subject children." This statement essentially and succinctly defines non-therapeutic research.

The Court affirmed the obligation to protect children from being placed "unnecessarily in potentially hazardous non-therapeutic research surroundings" by either scientific researchers or even by their parents and the court correctly noted that "parental consent, no matter how informed, is insufficient."
Appellee's motion for reconsideration includes the following in footnote 3:

"It is not clear why parental consent under these or other circumstances is ineffective and not permitted. Consider the parent who is asked to consent to a study of a vaccine provided for children at risk for a serious communicable disease. Some of those children necessarily will be given a placebo, a "treatment" that places them at risk, or exposes them to elevated harm, by enhancing — or, at the least, failing to diminish — the risk that they will contract the disease. . . ."

In addition to arguments made elsewhere in this document, we would suggest that this scenario fails to distinguish between prevention of non-imminent disease and the imminent risk associated with knowingly placing a child in a contaminated environment that is likely to cause foreseeable and disabling harm. The Court's holding in this regard is entirely correct because it proscribes the intentional exposure of healthy children to toxic agents that are known to cause neurological impairment.

We further note that "placebo" is appropriate only in the absence of an alternative treatment of proven efficacy. [12] In addition, "placebo" controls and dosage titration research should only be undertaken after fundamental safety and efficacy have been established. Much of the risk associated with such endeavors should have already been eliminated through computer modeling and animal research.

Appellees also assert in footnote 3: "Consider the implications outside of the area of health research. If parents cannot consent to non-therapeutic research that poses "any risk" to their children, how can they consent to the almost infinite spectrum of other activities that pose potential risks to their children? Can parents still consent, for example, to their child's obtaining an "early driver's license," . . . or engaging in the myriad of other inherently risky activities that are an accepted part of childhood?"

Appellees seem to suggest that the unnatural risks associated with participation in medical research are somehow to be viewed by the Court as analogous — if not identical — to everyday risks of life.
It is as though they believe that such hazards should be visited upon every child as a matter of natural course.

The particularized and optional nature of such risks, of course, underlie the necessity for and very existence of ethical codes.

Formulations such as these reinforce our concern that ethical safeguards for children are viewed simply as inconveniences that must be circumvented. Furthermore, informed consent is the cornerstone of ethical medical research. Parents are typically fully aware of the dangers associated with driving an automobile, engaging in athletics, and the like. However, as the findings of the federal Office of Human Research Protections demonstrate http://ohrp.osophs.dhhs.gov/detrm_letrs/lindex.htm], the hazards associated with research protocols are far too often not clearly and openly disclosed. When adverse outcomes occur in routine life activities, they are accidents; when adverse outcomes occur in research, they are either preventable, or, as often is the case, built into the protocol and, thus, are inflicted (non-accidental) injuries.
We are encouraged by the Court's unequivocal affirmation of the overriding concern for "the best interests of the child":

"We have long stressed that the "best interests of the child" is the overriding concern of this Court in matters relating to children. Whatever the interests of a parent and whatever the interests of the general public in fostering research that might, according to a researcher's hypothesis, be for the good of all children, this Court's concern for the particular child and particular case over-arches all other interests. It is, simply, and we hope, succinctly put, not in the best interest of any healthy child to be intentionally put in a non-therapeutic situation where his or her health may be impaired, in order to test methods that may ultimately benefit all children." [p.82]

The same moral sense guided Justice Edward Greenfield [15] when he struck down New York State's mental health research regulations, stating:

"Parents may be free to become martyrs themselves. But it does not follow they are free, in identical circumstances, to make martyrs of their children before they have reached the age of full and legal discretion when they can make that choice for themselves." [T.D. v NYSOMH, 1995]

This Court recognized that conflicts of interest are deeply embedded in the biomedical research enterprise, and it recognized the serious inequities arising from an inherently unfair playing field "specifically for the poor and less educated who bear most of the research burden."

Appellees argue against the Court's resolute ethical standard prohibiting the exposure of children to any unnecessary risks in non-therapeutic experiments. Appellees would wish to be the sole arbiters authorized to determine how levels of risk are to be interpreted. The Court, no doubt, is mindful of the fact that "minimal risk" has been invoked indiscriminately to facilitate even high-risk research on children.

We offer the following examples:

Case 1: Institutional Review Board defines "minimal risk:"

As of October 2000, 100 obese children and 93 normal weight children, aged 6 to 10 years old, had been enrolled in an obesity experiment conducted at National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD). [16] [Attached, OHRP letter of findings.]

The experiment required a battery of painful tests and a two-day overnight hospital stay for intensive additional testing, including the insertion of several intravenous blood lines (one attached for 18 hours), MRI, a 2- hour hyperglycemic clamp (involves a second IV line), a 3 hour euglycemic clamp (involves two IV lines) and hyperinsulinemic clamp. The children were required to experience extremely high and extremely low blood sugar levels for hours at a time.

The experiment caused the children undue pain, put them at risk of allergic reactions, and most problematically, at risk of blood clots or phlebitis. The experiment offered these children absolutely no benefit.

IRB minutes [16] reveal that on March 27, 1996 the IRB approved the experiment as involving "greater than minimal risk." However, the minutes of a subsequent meeting on April 24, 1996 reveal that the principal investigator, Dr. Jack Yanovski, persuaded the IRB to approve the experiment under the "minimal risk" category: "The committee agreed unanimously that the level of risk to which children enrolled in this protocol are exposed falls within Section 46.404 of 45 CFR 46, Subpart D, namely not greater than minimal risk." Committee members rationalized the decision by declaring that the risks involved were no greater than "what a child might encounter while playing in traffic." Whose children, it might be asked, did the Committee assume to be playing in traffic?

In its November 3, 2000 letter of determination, [16] the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) acknowledged that "determinations regarding the risk level of research are based upon the subjective judgment of the IRB." It is of note that NICHD's IRB also classifies phase I vaccine trials as "minimal risk" when such trials pose unknown, possibly high toxicity, risks.

In contrast to the Agency's ruling in the fenfluramine experiment (above) based on its accepting the "at risk of a condition" argument, OHRP ruled that the normal weight children "do not have a disorder or condition," and their inclusion in the experiment violated federal regulations. The experiment was suspended.

A Utilitarian Culture of Opportunism Permeates American Research Ethics

Utilitarian business ethics in which the ends justify the means have infiltrated the academic research establishment, [17] including Government oversight agencies, thereby eliminating all essential checks and balances needed to protect vulnerable individual citizens from exploitation. A cadre of self-designated "bioethicists" who control the administrative apparatus of the medical research enterprise appear to be unconcerned about encroaching on the sacred bond between parents and children. [18]
The current insular self-regulating system relies entirely on a fraternity of mutual interest groups; thus, even experiments endorsed by the FDA and NIH put the interest of science and commerce above the welfare of human subjects. [19, 20] These interlocking interest groups are: (1) pharmaceutical sponsors[21] who insist on secrecy; [22] investigators[23] academic institutions having a financial stake in the enterprise; [24]

(3) in-house institutional review boards operating in secrecy[25]advance the interests of the institution employing them;[26] (4) scientific, peer reviewed journals that publish biased research findings;18 and (5) the federal government oversight agencies that increasingly promote industry interests. [28, 29]

There is a complete absence of judicial oversight regarding medical research transactions that involve the fundamental liberty rights of citizens guaranteed under the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Spurred on by the "carrot" of extended patents and other financial benefits, commercial interests have created an environment within medical research that justifies the unequal distribution of research burdens by embracing a philosophy of cultural relativism[30] and "science uber alles."[31]

Those with vested interests in medical research control the system[32] have given the research establishment, powerful research centers in particular, free rein to cut corners, to evade meaningful informed consent, and to facilitate "high risk, high impact" experiments. [33, 34]

The Court was rightly critical of the Johns Hopkins University IRB which was shown to have actively collaborated with the researchers by suggesting "a way to miscast the characteristics of the study," rather than protecting the best interest of the subject children. To illustrate how endemic complicity to circumvent the informed consent process is within the IRB research fraternity, we bring to the Court's attention the following published statement by Franklin Miller,[35] a fellow at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics and a member of the IRB of NIMH:

"Challenge studies in psychiatric research with decisionally incapacitated patients are morally problematic but justifiableIf the law makes challenge studies by their very nature more than a minor increase over minimal risk investigators will have very strong incentive to circumvent legal restrictions by taking the stance that all patients involved in these studies are fully capable of giving informed consent." [pp.197-198]

In this climate, even experiments lacking scientific justification are approved. For example, the scientific merit of speculative biochemical violence prediction experiments[36] and other such chemically induced symptom provocation experiments[37] have been questioned by the Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), Dr. Steven Hyman. He suggests that "such approaches have revealed nothing about cause or mechanism and have been relatively sterile with regard to generating good follow-up questions."[36] Yet, as will be demonstrated, children are being subjected to such experiments.

Federal agencies entrusted with protecting the public health, and ensuring that the rights and safety of human research subjects are not violated in pursuit of scientific knowledge, have failed utterly to meet their public responsibility. They have instead set in motion a series of initiatives for the purpose of loosening existing federal restrictions-including travel to international meetings to argue against the unwanted provisions of the Declaration of Helsinki.[38] (Attachment, Pretoria)

Efforts to broaden the recruitment of children for clinical trials is demonstrated by several recent strategies embarked upon by the Department of Health and Human Services.

A draft document[39] (attachment) essentially redefines the terminology of existing federal regulations to further broaden the criteria under which healthy children would be recruited into research that may cause them pain and put them at risk of serious harm. The DHHS Draft indicates that "for the purposes of sec. 46.406" the term "condition" is redefined to include non-medical

The DHHS Draft would allow "a demographic [sic ] descriptor" to qualify as a "condition." These semantic gymnastics appear intended to legitimize experiments prohibited by current regulations. It appears that in some cases, racial profiling is employed in the research recruitment process. The Alliance for Human Research Protection (AHRP) has been singularly critical of this policy shift, and submitted several dissenting comments, [40] criticizing these disingenuous semantic manipulations. [Attached AHRP Comments Re: Interim Rule]

By twisting regulatory terminology, federal government policy makers attempt to legitimize experiments that put healthy children at risk of harm without scientific justification or potential personal benefit, thereby stripping children of existing federal regulatory protections. [8, 41] Healthy children are being sought as drug test subjects by drug companies who are spending $1 billion a year on pediatric testing. [4, 42] Federal bureaucrats have invented a dubious, new term for these children, namely, "risk-bearing children."[39]

This policy shift is made clear by the Director of the Federal Office of Human Research Protections, the federal agency with responsibility for monitoring IRB operations and to uproot and sanction unethical research when discovered. In an article published in the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics, Dr. Greg Koski[43] stated: "as we understandably increase the extent to which needed research is conducted on vulnerable populations, such as children, it may well be necessary to redefine our notions of consent and assent for purposes of recruiting subjects." Even if we ignore the violations of law implicit in this pronouncement, we cannot ignore the fact that it sends a signal of intent by the highest research enforcement official in the federal government. That signal reveals the agency's intent to override the restrictions imposed by the Hippocratic Oath ("first, do no harm"), the Nuremberg Code,[1] the Declaration of Helsinki,[12] and the Belmont Report. [44]
The Human Consequences of a Policy of Self-Interest

Case 2: In 1998, AHRP identified two wholly non-therapeutic "challenge" experiments that exposed 6 to 11 year old children to fenfluramine, a serotonin depleting drug so that researchers could test a speculative violence prediction hypothesis. One experiment was conducted at NYS Psychiatric Institute [45] on 34 healthy minority children. The companion experiment, conducted at the Mount Sinai Medical Center,[46] included some children diagnosed with ADHD; others were normal controls.

The experiments had each been approved by five Institutional Review Boards[47] who saw nothing wrong with exposing the children to discomfort, trauma, and risks associate with exposure to a neurotoxic drug.[48] The investigators hoped to find "proof" that these children were predisposed toward violence even though they were not behaving violently.[49] At best, these experiments were conducted to test a dubious, pseudo-scientific hypothesis.

The approval of these experiments demonstrates that the current self-regulating system is riddled with conflicts of interest, [24, 25, 26] and fails to protect children even from ethically and scientifically questionable experiments.

· What possible ethical justification is there for conducting experiments on children, similar to those that the Director of NIMH has deemed unethical and scientifically unfounded?

In the NYSPI experiment, only healthy African American and Hispanic boys were recruited, their names obtained from the New York City Parole Department. OPRR accepted the specious argument (made by the NYS Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene) that although the children had no diagnosable condition, they were "at risk" of a condition. That condition, "predisposition to violence," is not defined in medicine, and is therefore, not medically treatable. These "fine points" notwithstanding, children were subjected to an invasive medical experiment that put them at risk of harm. It is clear that had the experiment involved laboratory animals protected under the Animal Welfare Act (1966),[50] such disingenuous arguments aimed at circumventing a protective prohibition would not have been entertained.

The fact that OPRR determined that the NYSPI experiment on healthy children complied with Federal regulations, while the Mount Sinai experiment that included both healthy controls and children diagnosed with ADHD did not, demonstrates that federal regulations are applied inconsistently. Concern about fenfluramine's neurotoxicirty led 22 neuroscientists, [51] in 1993, to petition the FDA against its approval. The drug was withdrawn after it caused fatal heart valve damage.[52] The inconsistency between the disclosure of risks in the informed consent documents[53] of the two fenfluramine pediatric experiments demonstrate the inherent flaws in current informed consent compliance. It also demonstrates that current federal safeguards are inadequate for protecting children from unnecessary, invasive, even hazardous research.

The NYSPI consent form signed by parents acknowledged "possible side effects of fenfluramine: nausea, stomach aches, headaches, anxiety, dry mouth, drowsiness, diarrhea, sleepiness and a mild feeling of euphoria. Low blood pressure, tremor, low blood sugar, increased urination, depression, dizziness, and rapid heartbeats may also occur with this medication, but are uncommon. These side effects have been reported when fenfluramine is continued over a number of days, not with a single dose" The Mount Sinai consent form presented a positive spin without disclosing known risks:

"None of the these tests or observational procedures are dangerous or pose any risk to your child. The fenfluramine challenge test is also safe and poses no significant risk to your child. A single dose of fenfluramine is unlikely to cause any side effects. Higher doses, for extended periods of time (up to 9 months), have been used with children with occasional mild side effects such as sleep disturbances, weight loss and irritability being reported. No side effects have been reported in the literature after a single dose. We have found that a small proportion of children (less than 5%) experiences mild headaches or nausea, but all were fine by the next morning." Neither consent form mentioned the most serious risk: neurotoxicity to children's developing brains.

OPRR, the Federal oversight agency entrusted with protecting research subjects failed to examine the major ethical deficiencies:[54] dubious scientific rationale, lack of a medical condition to be treated; selection criteria that violated equitable distribution requirements, and coercive recruitment procedures. Research on human beings that lacks rigorous scientific basis is a fundamental violation of international and national standards. [1, 12, 43] Failure to address these issues has spawned experiments that similarly use the "at risk of a condition" argument for recruiting healthy children into medical experiments that offer them no benefit but put them at risk.

Case 3: Propulsid, a drug approved for heartburn was found to cause cardiovascular and gastrointestinal adverse side effects. The drug prolonged the QT interval, an indication of cardiac dysrhythmia. FDA's director of cardiology, Dr. Raymond Lipicky,[55] warned in the American Journal of Cardiology that if a drug that prolonged the QT interval had a benefit that was "less than lifesaving . . . any risk of death would likely be considered unacceptable." Despite warnings by FDA's cardiology and gastrointestinal division experts and despite FDA warnings to the drug manufacturer that Propulsid was "not approvable" for children, 100 babies with gastroesophageal reflux (a condition most babies outgrow by one year) were put in a Propulsid clinical trial.

The risks associated with the drug were not disclosed to parents, neither were they told that deaths had occurred. [56, 57] Propulsid's sales in 1999 had reached $950 million, while its death rate — according to the FDA — had by then reached 80 (adults and children).[58]

Case 4: Pacemaker surgical experiment: 68 children underwent surgery at NIH to test whether a pacemaker could treat or cure hypertrophic cardiomyopathy,[59] an inherited heart disease that can cause thickening of the heart and sudden death. Doctors disagree about the need or justification for this radical intervention. Some children died, while others got worse, not better. It was reported that the family of a child who died claims: "NIH doctors used undue pressure to get their children into an experiment that was unlikely to help them." [60] In addition, the parents of a child whose condition at age 12 worsened after the insertion of the pacemaker say they were "stampeded into a pacemaker for their son without even being told it was an experiment."[60] His mother charges that they were told he would die if they didn't act quickly.

According to the Wall Street Journal's investigative 1996 report,[59] the harshest criticism of this experiment and the intimidating recruitment tactics come from prominent scientists who served at the NIH and then moved on to the private sector. The Journal quotes former NIH researcher Dr. Paolo Spirito, now a heart specialist in Genoa, Italy: "It's unbelievable that pacemakers were allowed to be put in children with no severe disease and no symptoms." And Dr. Mark Josephson, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, is quoted: "There's a lot of witchcraft here."

Case 5. Olanzapine (Zyprexa) was approved by the FDA in 1996 for psychosis in adult schizophrenia patients. The Boston Globe[61] reported that in pre-marketing clinical trials, the drug was linked to life-threatening adverse drug side effects in 22% of the adult patients tested. FDA data[62] reveal that there were 27 deaths, 15 of which were suicides and the drop-out rate during 6-week clinical trials was 65%. In an extended (one year) trial, the drop out rate was 83%. Since its approval, additional serious adverse effects have been reported [63] including: new onset diabetes reported within 3 to 6 months of initiation of olanzapine[64] liver abnormalities; induced mania[65], seizures, and neuroleptic malignant syndrome, which is potentially fatal.

Despite these severe side effects, 6 to 11 year old children were recruited into an experiment to test olanzapine in a clinical trial soon after it was approved for adults. The children were not diagnosed with schizophrenia, but with varying psychiatric diagnoses (including the controversial diagnosis of ADHD, whose validity is not even certain).[66] The experiment was conducted at the University of California Los Angeles.[67]

According to the published report, all children experienced adverse effects and none were helped, necessitating the termination of the study before 6 weeks of its inception. The adverse effects reported included sedation, weight gain of up to 16 pounds, and akathisia.

The experiment cannot be justified on ethical or medical / scientific grounds. Children were exposed to the known severe adverse effects associated with the drug, and to potential long-term hazards. The best interest of the children in this experiment were not served. Nevertheless the IRBs approved it. AHRP filed a complaint with OHRP on April 9, 2001.

Case 6: Investigators at NIMH[2] and four research centers[68] conducted a nine-week cross-over multiple drug experiment on 45 children (6 to 12 years old) who were diagnosed with hyperactive behavior, or "mild overanxious disorder." (The Court should note that this language has no scientific validity. Though some researchers clearly consider it to be state of the art, it is actually nothing more than psychobabble).

The purpose was to test the effect of stimulant drugs (methylphenidate, dextroamphetamine, and pemoline) on the cerebrospinal fluid levels of homovanillic acid (CSF HVA) and to find a correlation with the children's behavior. The children were subjected to pain and exposed to risks of harm enduring invasive, painful spinal taps[2] for non-therapeutic experimental purposes. It was not clear why the children had to undergo lumbar punctures since HVA is excreted in urine and could be measured without this painful procedure. It is difficult to comprehend the mindset of those who would suggest that a 6 year- old child could or would volunteer to endure a spinal tap for the sake of relieving a "mild overanxious disorder." In fact, it might be suggested that this procedure would be likely to exacerbate such a condition.

Should parents be allowed to volunteer their child for non-therapeutic, painful experiments?

Should those who stand in the place of parents be allowed to volunteer their wards?

Children are being recruited, some would say bribed, with Toys 'R' Us gift certificates[69] to assume risks ("risk bearing children")[39] as human subjects in drug trials which are not in their best interests. Children, including toddlers and healthy children, are being traded like commodities, undermining family values and medical ethics. Parents of limited means are encouraged to abdicate their parental responsibility for cash payments and to "volunteer" their children for drug experiments whose risks they are either uninformed about or do not understand.

Alice Dembner, a reporter for The Boston Globe, [4, 60, 70] examined research involving children (since 1994). She found that children have suffered and died in clinical trials in which ethical standards had been violated. She found that in the last seven years, at least eight children have died in medical experiments, while hundreds suffered harmful side effects. She also observed that "there is strong reason to believe that deaths and injuries in research involving children are more widespread than what is reported to government offices that handle complaints." [4, 60] The number of children currently serving as research subjects has increased to 45,000 in 2001 compared to 16,000 in 1997. Attachments to the brief [39, 40] and other documents cited [43, 3, 81] reveal a disturbing trend by federal agencies whose mandate is to ensure that human subjects, children in particular, are protected from abuse. Officials of DHHS, FDA, OHRP have initiated steps to weaken rather than strengthen federal protections for children.

The circumstances that led to the preventable death of Jesse Gelsinger [71] in a gene transfer experiment at the University of Pennsylvania, reveal a pervasive widespread problem, namely; Federal regulatory protections are being violated, circumvented, reinterpreted, and deconstructed and human subjects are at increased risks of harm. Physicians are engaging in coercion and violating the Code of Ethics of the American Medical Association [72] by accepting $5,000 referral fees (kickbacks) to recruit children for clinical trials.

And parents, who are too often uninformed about the actual risks involved, are being offered financial incentives to volunteer their children. A survey by an NIH researcher found that amounts "typically ranged from $200 to $400, but occasionally reached $1,000." [60, 69] In April 2001, FDA announced a reversal of its policy: [73] FDA would no longer accept data derived from healthy children for pediatric exclusivity as authorized under the FDA Modernization Act of 1997[9] (FDAMA).

Case 7: "Risk-Bearing" Preschool Tots

NIMH is sponsoring a controversial — and we believe — irresponsible experiment that exposes young children to the risks of psychostimulant drugs in the absence of any validated medical condition, [74] or demonstrated benefit outweighing the risks. Preschool ADHD Treatment Study (PATS) is a multi-center pediatric research initiative to test psychostimulant drugs in 4,000[75] children including 312 children as young as three years old[3] — some not yet toilet-trained. In 1998 an NIMH Consensus Conference concluded that there is no agreement in the field regarding either the ADHD diagnostic criteria and the safety of treating children with psychostimulant drugs.[66]

Some physicians have suggested that ADHD is a "bogus" diagnosis that was created to pacify anxious parents and teachers. [76] Since these drugs' safety is disputed, and there is evidence that they may potentially cause irreversible harm to these young children's developing central nervous system and brain cells, [66, 77] we deem it an understatement to suggest that this project is highly questionable. Indeed, we would argue that this experiment extends clinical malpractice of over prescribing of psychotropic drugs to research to research. We also question the payment scheme associated with the experiment. To facilitate recruitment for this controversial experiment, the federal government has earmarked a $645 cash payment to parents (above $15 travel expenses for each visit) to volunteer their preschool children as "risk bearing children."

The ethical standards of the Nuremberg Code and the Declaration of Helsinki[12] require that:

"Medical research involving human subjects must conform to generally accepted scientific principles, be based on a thorough knowledge of the scientific literature, other relevant sources of information, and on adequate laboratory and, where appropriate, animal experimentation." [12]

The proposed DHHS Draft [39] equivocates and thereby weakens international criteria for ethical research by stating: "'Reasonable opportunity' may include the concepts of scientific validity, timeliness, and feasibility." Indeed, an investigation into the preventable death of a young healthy research subject at the Johns Hopkins University found that not even a basic literature search using MEDLINE had been conducted by either the investigators or the IRB[78] prior to subjecting human beings to an invasive, non-therapeutic, exploratory medical experiment with hexamethonium, a substance withdrawn from the market in the 1970s.[79]

Children and Families at Risk

On April 24, 2001, the Food and Drug Administration adopted an interim rule incorporating the HHS regulations contained in 45 CFR 46 Subpart D, "Additional Safeguards for Children in Clinical Investigations of FDA-Regulated Products."[41] The safeguards adopted by FDA excluded Section 46.408 (c) — which states:

"If the IRB determines that a research protocol is designed for conditions or for a subject population for which parental or guardian permission is not a reasonable requirement to protect the subjects (for example, neglected or abused children), it may waive the consent requirements in Subpart A of this part and paragraph (b) of this section, provided an appropriate mechanism for protecting the children who will participate as subjects in the research is substituted, and provided further that this waiver is not inconsistent with Federal, State, or local laws. The choice of an appropriate mechanism would depend upon the nature and purpose of the activities described in the protocol, the risk and anticipated benefit to the research subjects, and their age, maturity, status, and condition."

Section 408 (c) gives institutional review boards discretionary authority to waive parental permission for unspecified research involving (for example) children who are loosely referred to as "neglected and abused." FDA correctly determined that it lacks authority under Federal law to empower IRBs to waive parental consent. FDA's decision prompted an advisory committee of OHRP (the National Human Research Protection Advisory Committee, NHRPAC),[80] to apply pressure by urging the FDA to adopt section 46.408 (c ). NHRPAC's position ignores entirely the role of the Court in adjudicating the status of a child as "neglected or abused." The Committee took the position that adolescents with sexually transmitted diseases are "mature" and should, therefore, be "permitted to consent for clinical research studies related to such disorders and diseases without parental permission."

"We STRONGLY believe that in specific circumstances the consent of the mature adolescent, without parental involvement, IS SUFFICIENT to permit research to proceed as long as procedural safeguards are in place to protect the interests of the subjects. We request that the FDA aggressively interpret its legal authority and adopt this section of the regulations as part of additional safeguards for children in clinical investigations of FDA-regulated products. Adoption of this section for application to research proposals involving mature adolescents does not eliminate informed consent."[81] (Emphasis in original)

NHRPAC misrepresented the issue by conflating research with treatment: they argued that HIV infected adolescents would be denied life prolonging treatment and "the benefits that might have accrued from participation in [sic] clinical trials if parental permission were required."[81] In fact, testing the safety and efficacy of new drugs involves added risks for patients, which is why informed consent requirements for research are more stringent than in clinical care. Furthermore, federal regulations do not differentiate between children of any age neither do federal regulations recognize "informed consent" from minors. This stance illustrates a proclivity to ride roughshod over the rights and responsibility of parents to protect their children from risks of harm, and on the inviolability of the parent-child relationship.
Conflicts of Interest

AHRP has consistently raised questions about the conflicts of interest that permeate the medical research industry, including federal agencies established to monitor human research, their advisory panels (such as NHRPAC), the research institutions, and the local institutional review boards (IRBs). We address a number of deficiencies that contributed to the Kennedy Krieger debacle by calling for:

A. Disclosure of conflicts of interest by all IRB members and all federal officials involved in regulating and/or monitoring medical research.

B. Community representation equal to or even greater than "stakeholder" representation in the composition of IRBs.

C. Clear delineation of the role of IRB as protectors of the public interest. In this regard, we encourage the unfettered creativity of researchers in devising research proposals, but call upon IRBs to apply the relevant legal and ethical standards. In essence, the IRB must serve as the "conscience" of the medical research enterprise-unless community interests are equally represented, that is unlikely to occur.

We understand the Court's "no risk" ruling to mean "no reasonably perceivable risk," a construction that comprehends the now out-of-fashion "prudent person" standard. We do so because the history of the "minimal risk" standard, as has been demonstrated, is fraught with purposeful distortions beyond reason. For example, the National Institute for Child Health and Development categorizes phase 1 vaccine trials as "minimal risk," thereby evading rigorous review and oversight.

Appellees' Motion for Partial Reconsideration and Modification of Opinion

Appellees have asserted: "On the day this mandate issues, hundreds of fully accredited medical research projects now conducted in Maryland will terminate."

We believe that this statement may, in fact, be accurate. If so, such an eventuality will serve as prima facie evidence of the fact that hazards of the magnitude identified in the instant case and similar unacceptable risks to the health and welfare of minors and other vulnerable individuals are commonplace in the current research environment. In short, it will stand as a valid indictment of the contemporary medical research enterprise. Further, we argue, the termination of these hazardous undertakings will protect the human research subjects who would have been put in harm's way without commensurate benefits in the offing.

Appellees have referenced "the countless efforts of dedicated scientists ... institutions of international renown ...careful review by IRB... [and] review by other accrediting and funding agencies..." They failed to mention the host of projects such as we have documented or those that have been deemed so abysmally deficient that they have been ordered terminated or fundamentally revised by the federal oversight agency, OHRP (formerly OPRR). [82]

The Challenges of Modernism

Science and technology are virtually synonymous with modernism. But modernism does not represent unalloyed integrity, purity, truth or justice. In contemporary medical research, as evidenced by the arguments proffered by appellees, it too often comprehends scientism, disingenuousness, condescension and insensitivity to and disrespect for the dignity of the individual.

Virtually every change in federal policy is proclaimed to be an "enhancement" of the protections afforded research subjects. The facts we have presented herein belie that assertion. In fact, the Court's decision in the instant case provides a real and meaningful enhancement to the safety and welfare of current and potential research participants. We urge, therefore, that Appellee’s motion to reconsider be denied.

The Act and its amendments protects animals by requiring accountability: "Public Law 99-198 Food Security Act of 1985, Subtitle F - Animal Welfare Also called "The Improved Standards for Laboratory Animals Act" and enacted December 23, 1985, this section clarifies what is meant by "humane care" by mentioning specifics such as sanitation, housing, and ventilation. It directs the Secretary of Agriculture to establish regulations to provide exercise for dogs and an adequate physical environment to promote the psychological well-being of nonhuman primates. It specifies that pain and distress must be minimized in experimental procedures and that alternatives to such procedures be considered by the principle investigator. It also defines practices that are considered to be painful.
No animal can be used in more than one major operative experiment with recovery (exceptions are listed). The establishment of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is introduced with a description of its roles, composition, and responsibilities to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). Also included is the formation of an information service at the National Agricultural Library to assist those regulated by the act in prevention of unintended duplication of research, employee training, searching for ways to reduce or replace animal use, and to provide information on how to decrease pain and distress. The final section explains the penalties for release of trade secrets by regulators and the regulated community. [Full Text]

Animal Care Policies

The policy manual gives policies issued by APHIS/Animal Care that clarify the Animal Welfare Act regulations. Among the topics covered are "Written Narrative for Alternatives to Painful Procedures", "Space and Exercise Requirements for Traveling Exhibitors", and "Annual Report for Research Facilities". Originally issued in April 1997, new policies may be added at any time and included in the manual. [Full Text at APHIS/AC website]

No one maintains an accurate record of human subjects, no one knows how many people / children are in research or how many were harmed, or have died as a result. Pain and suffering are not addressed; there are no prohibitions against using a child repeatedly in painful medical experiments.
[51] The FDA received repeated warnings about Redux (brand name) prior to its approval, from neuroscientists, such as, Dr. George Ricaurte of Johns Hopkins University. In a letter, Dec 15, 1993, a group of neuroscientists warned that: "Redux had been shown to cause brain damage in animals and might do the same thing in humans by eroding the body's supply of serotonin" On Dec 7, 1995, twenty-two neuroscientists signed a petition "implored the FDA in a letter not to approve Redux until its potential to cause neurological damage in humans was studied further"

We Stand For NO SYSTEM

Kindom (Do No Harm Communities) is the dream for freedom, but it is the dream for the freedom of those around us who also live the dream of freedom, because it is in living for the freedom of others that we get our freedom. When we live for the dreams of Kindom of those around us, we live life as a gift because we live for (dedicate our lives to) their dream of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance, etc, just as they live for our Kindom dreams too. This is true co-creation (cooperation) with no attack on the uniqueness of each of us. When we live this way, we have no need for any man-made system - everything/everyone has already been taken care of by our love for life.

Just as we do not have to jump 10 feet across the room to grab our next breath, neither do we have to worry about food, water and shelter because it has all been taken care of as we each co-create Kindoms/Kin-Domains for everyone. Now everybody and everything of the dream of life that is Kindom/Paradise is free (has been set free once again). The issue is greed and selfishness, power and control trips, arrogance, ignorance, being fed many many lies and being traumatised. The issue is not overpopulation - there is more than enough land available for every family to have a hectare (2.5 acres Kin-Domain) to care for. The land of Australia can provide a Kin-Domain for every family across Earth, each with a food forest, clean fresh drinking water and plenty of space for building natural do no harm habitats and with plenty of land left over.

Everyone must have the freedom to take full-responsibility for their lives, for the water they drink, the food they eat and for their shelter. Currently, "The System" forces everyone to give up taking full-responsibility so that we become grown up children accustomed to sucking on the nipples of "The System" corporations for everything, having to use money to get by and to follow the rules of money because we are not co-creating freedom, peace, truth, joy and abundance for each other. Money only leads to haves and have nots and all the abuse, manipulation and distractions that we are subjected to as slaves to money.

When we give up living for other's Kindom dreams, we start creating hell ("The System") all around us because we become self-centred - now it's all about "my freedom","my money", "my land", "my belief", "my saviour", "mine", "mine","mine", "i","i", "i", "own", "own", "own", etc. To protect what we claim we own requires a man-made system with FORCE to protect those self-centred claims. This is ALL trauma based and all story-telling (brainwashing/braindirtying).

NO SYSTEM = KINDOM/DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES photo Kindom_zpsa6d24e8a.jpg

Our true freedom comes when we set our thoughts of freedom into motion so that we live freedom rather than just talking and thinking about it while we still slave for "The System". Kindom will not happen while we meditate for hours in the bush or do yoga retreats or wait for Jesus or follow the processes of the OPPT (One People's Public Trust now called One People). This is not freedom because we are not living freedom because we are living the story-telling of Jesus or Zeitgeist or The Secret or Thrive or One Earth/Consciousness/People.

Living Kindom is very, very hard work as we set about repairing the damage to MAN/Earth/Nature that we are ALL responsible for but the burden becomes lighter the more of us put our life-energy into the dream of returning Earth to Paradise. Day-after-day, we all have to work our arses off until Kindom is all around us (MAN) once again. This is the price we pay to set each other free on a piece of land (Kin-Domain), so that no one is under the image-power (education/brainwashing/story-telling) of another MAN anymore and so that everyone can have their space of love to create and live their unique, do no harm dreams. This only happens once we have the Kindoms set up so that everyone is provided for.

Once we re-create the food forests, whether on land or in the suburbs, we can re-claim our freedom, breaking the strangle-hold of "The System" because we are no longer reliant on its services and benefits and no longer turning each other into slaves of "The System", cogs in the wheels of "The System" machine. If we don't put the effort in to set everyone and everything free all around us then we still live in HELL ("The System"). The key is to live for everyone else's freedom so that we can have it too.

A Collection Of Various Love For Life Posts
Providing The Big Picture We See

Sequential Order

We ask you to NOT believe anything we say/share and instead use scrutiny like an intense blow torch and go where the logic of truth/sense takes you. This is very, very important. Put everything you believe up to the test of scrutiny to see how it stacks up. If you are true to your heart/senses and go where the logic of truth/sense takes you will find that NO belief, etc, will stand up to the test of scrutiny. They just do not stack up because they are lies/fraud.

After you have watched and read all the material and any questions are left unanswered, send us your landline number and we will use the internet phone as a free unlimited call. We are on Sydney NSW Australia time. Best times for us to chat are between 11.00am and 6.00pm.

It is critical that you fully comprehend Image Power, "Spelling", Trauma, Reaction To Trauma, Curses, Processing Curses, Full-Responsibility/Liability, Limited Liability/Responsibility (passing-the-back), Slavery, Senses/Sense vs Non-Sense/Senses, Re-Presenting Intellectual Property such as but not limited to "Name", Storytelling/Storytellers, Duality, Black-Magic, Belief, Lies, "i", All Seeing "i" (eye), etc..... These themes and others are covered over and over and over again.

If you do not comprehend these insights and are unable to use your senses to sense your way through all the non-sense/non-sensory-images that enslave MAN under their image power (darkness = "The System" = Hell), men and women will remain deeply trapped under a terrible state of trauma. Our intention is to inspire you to remedy by showing you how to move away from reacting to trauma in all its nefarious and devious forms.

Peaceful Transition Through Sacrifice And Service

We feel there is an essential peaceful do no harm transition required to get all of MAN back to standing on MANS feet without reliance upon another MAN for water, food, shelter. As it stands everyone in "The System" are highly dependent and reliant on the "group mind-set" that forms "The System" of slaves providing services and benefits for the emotionally addicted slaves to "The System" (and you can put us in the same basket too). The transition is to get MAN back to relying ONLY on nature without 3rd party interlopers, intermeddlers, interceders getting in the way. The transition is a team effort with the foresight for setting all of MAN free down-the-line so that MAN is no longer dependent on slaves and masters providing services, benefits, privileges and exclusivity while being bound to contracts, rituals, procedures, conditions, rules & regulations which compromises MAN severely.

This transition is all about shifting from limited liability/responsibility to full liability/responsibility. This full responsibility is all about caring for our health, nature all around us, clean uncorrupted (pure) water and food, partner/co-creator, children, shelter, animal-friends in partnership, etc. In "The System", we are already together destroying each other - we have to come together to create peace together so that we can all have peace. We cannot live peacefully when we are islands, not taking full responsibility for the lives of those around us until EVERYONE can take full responsibility for their life, which means that EVERYONE is healed of system trauma. In "The System", we all come together to make slaves of each other - now is the moment to come together to set each other free, to live for each other's freedom, peace, joy and abundance. Once we have set each other free, we are free.

And You Control MAN On The Land
Displace MAN From Land
And You Turn MAN Into Slaves

The Cristian Family November 2006

The Cristian Family Declaration

The Cristian family and The Love for Life Campaign are apolitical, non-religious, non-violent, anti weapons, anti drugs (both pharmaceutical and recreational) and anti any ideology that denies the existence of Do No Harm Communities (Kindoms) and suppresses the uniqueness and freedom of all men, women and children.

The Cristian family and our Love For Life work is unaligned to any big business corporation, intelligence agency, government body, "system" law, "system" think tanks, "system" green or environmental movements, religion, cult, sect, society (fraternity, brotherhood, sisterhood, order, club, etc,) secret or not, hidden agenda, law or sovereignty group, occult, esoteric, New Age or Old Age.

The Cristian family supports and promotes the remedy that brings an everlasting peace, freedom, truth, joy, abundance and do no harm for all of life without causing loss of uniqueness or the need for having slaves and rulers. We are not into following the one in front or being shepherds for sheeple. Most importantly, we take full-responsibility for everything we think, feel and do.

The Cristian family are not Christians.

Arthur & Fiona Cristian
Love For Life

December 2006

The Cristian Family November 2006


Being of clear brain, heart and intention, we each declare the following to be true:

• We have no intention of ending our own lives.

• We will not tolerate suppression of truth, ideas, freedom, or our work. We stand for freedom of speech.

• We stand together to support others in the expression of truths and freedom to speak out no matter how radical those ideas may seem.

• Standing for freedom takes courage; together we shall be strong in the face of all odds.

• If it is ever claimed that we have committed suicide, encountered an unfortunate accident, died of sickness/disease, disappeared, been institutionalized, or sold out financially or in any other way to self-interested factions, we declare those claims false and fabricated.

• We testify, assert and affirm without reservation, on behalf of all those who have dedicated their lives to the ending of secrecy and the promotion of freedom of thought, ideas and expression that we shall prevail.

• We Do Not Have Multiple Personality Disorders

Update Regarding The Love For Life
Home Page And Quick User Guide

We are turning the Love for Life Quick User Guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 into a blog of all the main insights of our work since March 2005, whether through articles, videos, podcasts or discussions/debates.

As we do not have the time to compile everything we have written into a book, as many have suggested we do, compiling all our most important work into one area of the website is a way of providing easy access to this work so those interested are able to fully comprehend the big picture.

Instead of having to find our different articles, videos, etc, in various parts of the website, it will all be accessible here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 and here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3385.

Love For Life Videos

As amateurs and posted in the Quick User Guide below the Facebook links, we're currently creating and posting a series of videos called "The Dream Of Life" which covers the ground of all the Love For Life insights. We plan to have the videos completed by December 31st 2012. Once this is behind us, our intention is to create a 2 hour or so video covering the body of this work. All videos are embedded in the quick user guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 and uploaded in Arthur's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurLoveForLife.

Love For Life Music

We have started recording songs, with others, that express the themes of Love For Life. They are now being posted on Arthur's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurLoveForLife and are embedded in the quick user guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608. We have over 100 songs to record. A few rough demos have already been used as the soundtrack on the first "Dream of Life" video.

About Us - Love For Life & The Cristian Family

Also, everything we, the Cristian family, have gone through, from bank fraud and the theft of the family home to death threats and attempts on Arthur's life, is documented in the Quick User Guide too. If you, the reader, are prepared to put the effort in, you will comprehend the extent to which we have all been tricked into becoming slaves, giving up our uniqueness and our full-responsibility for life and destroying everything of life to the point where life is in danger of dying out completely. You will also comprehend the remedy to all this chaos; a remedy that requires only love for life and the determination to do what needs to be done. Though our focus is very strongly on the remedy that creates a world of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance and Do No Harm for all of life without loss of uniqueness or the need for slaves and rulers, we realise that it is vital to comprehend how to get there and what stops us from getting there. This is why there is so much information on the hows and whys of everything going wrong in the world today. We are not into peddling conspiracy theories, we are into routing out all forms of organised crime.

NSW Jewish Board Of Deputies
Has Threatened To Shut Down
The Love For Life Website

No Freedom Of Speech - No Freedom Of Thought

Love For Life does not support harm doing in any shape or form. However, we are supporters of free speech and post articles, documentaries, etc, that represent a wide cross section of ideas. See the Love For Life extensive research library where over 6000 documents, articles and videos are posted: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/82. We clearly see the evidence of the destruction to MAN and the earth that has been caused by ALL religions over the centuries and are therefore not supporters of religions, cults, sects or any group that demands conformity of thought, speech or action, or has rules, regulations or rituals that must be followed. Religions, nationalities and cultural "identities" are formed as a result of the brainwashing we receive from childhood. They are part of the tactics the Establishment uses to keep us all divided from one another and fighting one another.

All religions promote discrimination and division, leading to hatred and even violence and murder. None of them have yet to produce a remedy to all the suffering, poverty, unhappiness and discrimination in the world. If any religion truly had the remedy to all the suffering on earth, there would no longer be any suffering. What have Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, atheism and the New Age done to end the suffering in the world?

Since December 2006, there have been many attempts to take down the Love For Life website. Any attempts have been thwarted by Love For Life supporters inundating the harm-doers with emails, etc, objecting to them taking down the website for a variety of reasons. The trouble makers usually back off when they realise that they can post all their views, arguments, beliefs, etc, in the Love For Life website without censorship or restriction imposed. They get to see that even the Queen, Pope, Prime Minister, President of America, etc, can post all their views without hindrance or sabotage and that we support freedom of speech/thought which means we support the right of all sides to express their views.

Of note, there is a vast amount of information posted in the Love For Life website which we do not agree with but we leave it all up because we refuse to be biased, opinionated or self-centered/self-serving. Of the many thousands of comments posted over the years we have only removed posts containing secret links to commercial advertisements, terrible foul language, threats of violence and death, etc, and attacks on other people's characters that avoid the subject/debate at hand. Besides links to advertisements, we have taken down less than six comments due to the above. We usually leave everything up, all warts and all, even those posts threatening to do terrible things to Fiona, our children, our dogs, our friends, family & supporters, etc.

The Love For Life website has information from all sides on many subjects, whether about Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Law, health, psychology, mind control, vaccination, aspartame, MSG, Chemtrails etc. There are over 11,000 articles, documentaries etc on the website and they are so diverse that we are sure that everyone would be able to find something they loved and something they hated, if they took the time to search. If we removed all the articles hated by everyone, there would probably be nothing left! We are not anti anyone but freedom of speech is freedom of speech and no one should condemn the work of another without taking the time to research the subject themselves. Yes, there are articles by those who have a less-than-rosy-viewpoint of Judaism, but there are also articles on the dark side of Tibetan Buddhism (and it is very dark) for those who are interested in the truth: Tibet - Buddhism - Dalai Lama: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6271 Should the authors of these articles be abused and imprisoned for daring to challenge the widely conceived reputation of Buddhism as being the religion of peace and love and that of the Dalai Lama as a saint, or should those interested be allowed to study the work and come to their own conclusions? The same applies to all the articles, documentaries, etc, about Christianity, Islam, Freemasonry, New World Order, etc.

The Love for Life website also shows how the Rule of Law, the Bar, the Government, the Monarchy, the system of commerce, the local, national and multi/trans-national private corporations, all the courses and careers on offer from our universities, all the educators, scientists, academics and experts, the aristocrats and the Establishment bloodlines have also done NOTHING to end the suffering in the world. The website maps the insanity of a world where there is no help for those in need, just as there was no help available for us when we were victims of terrible bank fraud: "NSW Supreme Court Case - Macquarie Bank/Perpetual Limited vs Fiona Cristian - Victims Of Bank Fraud Condoned By Judges" http://loveforlife.com.au/node/5 (orchestrated, condoned and protected by an international crime syndicate/terrorist organisation of judges, barristers, registrars, lawyers, politicians, banksters, big business representatives, media moguls and other lackeys who, all together, put up a wall of silence despite our trying many, many avenues. After the family home was stolen and business destroyed we were left close to poverty and destitution caring for 4 young daughters. Three years later not much has changed regardless of all our efforts. Where were all the followers of all the religions to help us? Or do we have to be members of those religions to receive help from others involved in them?

The New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies accused us of being anti - Jewish, see: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6616 and http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6665 because we had posted an excerpt from James von Brun's book: Kill the Best Gentiles: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6054 in which he blames Jews for the problems of the world. Obviously this is not our view because of what we have stated above. We do not hate anyone, whatever religion they follow. We are always open to talk to any religious leader or politician and meet with any judge, member of the Bar, experts, academics, educators etc to share the remedy we offer that heals all the divisions between MAN and MAN, and MAN and the EARTH.

Today, a representative of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies is threatening to close the website down, because they have decided it is anti - Jewish and that we promote racism. What has the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies done to end the suffering in the world? Can they show that they are concerned with the suffering of ALL men, women and children AND ARE SEEN TO BE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT or are they only concerned with Jewish affairs? If so, they, along with all the other religions that only care for their own, are part of the problem, not part of the solution. The man who rang Arthur today was only concerned with Jewish affairs; he was not interested in our intentions or in anybody else, just as most Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Catholics, etc, are only interested in their own. While we separate ourselves into groups, dividing ourselves from others with rules, regulations, rituals, procedures and conditions, we will never solve our problems.

No matter what we in the Western World Civilisation of Commerce have been promised by our politicians, religious leaders, scientists, educators, philosophers, etc, for the past two hundred years, all we have seen is ever-increasing destruction of men, women and children and the earth. None of the so-called experts and leaders we have been taught to rely on are coming up with a solution and none of them are taking full-responsibility for the fact that they can't handle the problem. All religious books talk about end times full of destruction and suffering but why do we have to follow this program when there is an alternative to hatred, mayhem and death? Why are our leaders following the program of destruction and death rather than exploring the alternatives? It seems that any mainstream politician, priest or academic are only interested in supporting the RULES OF THE DIVIDE, that maintain the haves and the have nots. For 200+ years, 99% of the world population have been so trained to pass on their responsibility for themselves, others and the earth, that the 1% of the population that make up the leaders of the rest of us are making all the decisions leading to the destruction of all of us and the earth. Let's not forget the education system that brainwashes the 99% of the population that we are free and have equal rights while, in fact, we are feathering the nests of those at the top.

At the root of all our problems is self-centredness, an unwillingness nurtured by the Establishment that keeps us concerned only with our own needs rather than the needs of others around us and the Earth. Instead of creating and releasing acts of love for those around us as gifts to benefit them and the earth, we take, take and take, until there is nothing left. The whole point of the Love for Life website is to show people the root of all our problems and to share the remedy. The extensive research library is there to attract browsers and to provide access to information not available through mainstream channels. If the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies can, after careful examination of our work, prove that anything we are saying is wrong, we will be happy to accept their proof. If they cannot, and they are still insistent on closing the website down, they will be showing themselves to be traitors to MAN because they are not interested in pursuing any avenue that can end the suffering in the world.

All religions, corporations and organisations that support and maintain the Western World Civilisation of Commerce are part of the problem because our civilisation is a world of haves and have nots, racism, violence, hatred, poverty, sickness, discrimination, abuse, starvation, homelessness, corruption, collusion, vindictiveness, social unrest, arrogance, ignorance, fear, war and chaos. While we support civilisation, we support death and destruction because ALL civilisations that have ever existed are apocalyptic by design.

If we truly want peace on earth and freedom for all, we have to let go of all that which keeps us divided, and come together as MAN, conscious living co-creators of creation. The Love For Life website offers a remedy to the problems we all face in the form of DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3641 For more details see here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6511 and here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3385 - We also highly recommend that everyone read the brilliant Russian books called The Ringing Cedars: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/1125 - The Love For Life Website Homepage also provides lots of inspiring remedy based information: http://loveforlife.com.au - If you want to be kept up to date with our work please register to the Love For Life Mailing List here: http://loveforlife.com.au/content/09/05/14/mailing-list. We usually send two postings per month. Presently (September 2011) there are over 7000 registrations reaching over 500,000 readers across Earth. The website now (September 2011) receives up to 12 million hits per month. Since December 2006, over 100 million people have visited the Love For Life website.

Clarification Regarding Our Intentions
Behind The Use Of Donations

The Love For Life website is offered for free without a fee and without any conditions attached. If people are inspired to donate money, then we accept their gift and have provided an avenue for them to support the work we do through Fiona's Paypal or ANZ bank account http://loveforlife.com.au/node/8515. There is no obligation whatsoever to donate and all are equally welcome to our work and to our "time", whether they donate or not. Over the last 9 years, all the Love For Life work has been put out for free and it has often been donations from supporters that have enabled us to renew the domain name, etc, to keep the website going. While some complain that we have an avenue for donations, others complained when we didn't! Either use it or don't - the choice is yours.

Since Love For Life started March 2005 and website December 2006, Arthur has worked 16 hours a day, 7 days a week unpaid for much of this period, putting together the website and sharing insights to wake people up to what has been done to them, whether through the 11,500+ individual articles, videos, podcasts, debates, discussions, pdf's, research documents, etc, found amongst the 8,500+ posts, as well as helping many, many men and women over the phone, and through email, website correspondence, Facebook and YouTube, and creating the Love For Life food forest vege garden and Love For Life music recording studio. This is our life is a gift commitment to serve MAN/Nature/Earth but we are still severely compromised by "The System" and still have to give to Caesar what is claimed to belong to Caesar, which is where the donations help us.
