Parkinson’s is a progressive disorder that affects the nervous system. Tremors are common and the disorder may cause stiffness or slowing of movement and speech may become soft or slurred. Symptoms worsen over time. Toxins associated with the cause of Parkinson’s are pesticides, carcinogens in animal fat, nitrites in cured meat, and dairy products that contain neurotoxic chemicals that have been found in the brains of PD sufferers during autopsy.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation was founded in 2000 after Michael J. Fox found out he had the disease in 1991 and vowed to find a cure in his lifetime.
The MJF Foundation is the biggest funder of Parkinson’s “research” in the world.
The MJF Foundation has a net worth of $300M.
As of 2023 the MJF Foundation had raised $1.75 billion for “research.”
Todd Sherer, Executive VP, received $987,604 in compensation in 2020.
CEO, Deborah W. Brooks, ex-VP at Goldman Sachs, received $937,604 the same year.
Despite over $1B spent on “research” for over 23 years, VP Sherer maintains “Parkinson’s is still uncurable” …but the foundation has “developed new therapies slowing it’s progression and making it easier for patients to cope.”
PARKINSON’S DRUGS AND THEIR HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS –
- Levodopa – increases levels of the chemical dopamine in your brain. Side effects include: vomiting, nausea, appetite loss, low blood pressure, confusion, uncontrollable movements of arms legs, or torso (dyskinesia)
- Dopamine Agonists – mimic effects of dopamine on the brain. Side effects include: daytime sleepiness, hallucinations, confusion, dyskinesia.
- Amantadine – antiviral that helps reduce Parkinson’s tremors. Side effects include: nausea, trouble sleeping, confusion, hallucinations.
- Anticholinergics – help with tremors. Side effects include: blurred vision, dry mouth, constipation, confusion, memory problems, inability to urinate.
- MAO-inhibitors – keeps more dopamine in your brain. Side effects include: nausea, trouble sleeping, hallucinations.
- Sinemet – converts to dopamine in the brain. Side effects include: worsening tremors, painful urination, seizures, hallucinations, confusion depression, suicidal thoughts, unusual behavior, extreme high or low blood pressure, and gastrointestinal bleeding.
The MJF Foundation is now focused on biomarker research which means they are looking at ways to identify a marker for Parkinson’s in someone’s body before it happens – more money spent on pointless “research” as the donations pour in.
HERE ARE A FEW OF THE ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS PERPETRATED BY THE MICHAEL J. FOX FOUNDATION AND THE U.K. BASED PARKINSON’S TRUST.
- Marmoset monkeys are over-dosed with MPTP, a neurotoxin, and injected with the street drug Ecstasy until they develop PD symptoms.
- Marmoset monkeys are injected with much higher doses of a toxic drug mixture in order to induce uncontrolled movements, psychotic behavior and hallucinations.
- Doxes of Doxycycline are injected into the skulls of Macaque monkeys to see if the antibiotic can penetrate the blood/brain barrier of a primate’s brain.
- A virus cocktail is injected into the monkeys’ brains forcing them to live with brain damage and unspeakable pain until they are killed by the vivisectors.
A FEW REASONS WHY USING ANIMALS IN PD RESEARCH IS POINTLESS.
- Monkeys do not develop Lewy bodies, which are clumps of abnormal protein found in the brains of humans with PD.
- Monkeys do not develop rest tremors as do human patients with PD.
- Genetics, age related, and environmental factors, cognition and emotion cannot be measured in animals.
- Rodents are especially resistant to drugs injected into their brains to produce PD symptoms.
- The human brain is different from that of any other mammal’s brain.
Dr. Alim-Louise Benabid of France, using clinical research on humans, developed an effective surgery for PD by using electrical stimulation on the subthalamus of the brain and was given an award by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Nevertheless, the MJF Foundation vivisectors insisted on doing the same experiments on animals for no apparent reason and continue to fund cruel and useless vivisection on monkeys and other animals.
PREVENTION OF PD AND ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES
- Avoid exposure to pesticides by choosing organic produce.
- Eat a plant-based diet.
- Green tea has a naturally occurring chemical that protects dopamine neurons affected by PD.
- IV glutathione, deficient in people with PD, is something you can administer yourself after being given instructions by a doctor.
- Coenzyme-Q is an antioxidant which improves mitochondrial functioning.
- Creatine is a compound that boosts dopamine availability and protects neurons.
- Acupuncture can boost energy and improve sleep.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Obesity can increase your chances of getting PD up to 300%.
Tracy Pollen, Michael’s wife, after years of eating a plant-based diet, embraced meat-eating after marrying Fox. In retrospect, it is a pity that it wasn’t the other way around and he didn’t become vegan like she used to be. The outcome could have been different.
In 2022 Michael J. Fox was awarded the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.
Michael J. Fox, like other celebrities with a serious disease, uses his fame and accumulation of awards to raise money for vivisection. These celebrities are fear driven and have no compassion for the animals that are being needlessly sacrificed for their all-consuming need to find a “cure.” Like Mary Tyler Moore and her campaign to “defeat” diabetes, their efforts will come to naught but the executives of the disease organizations they fund will become rich and the vivisectors they hire will make a nice living torturing animals.
