How many of you have ever hear of the drug Thalidomide? 
It was a drug made by the Nazis and "pushed" to millions of people as a new wonder tranquilizer.
What I am about to show you and tell you should:

It was marketed  aggressively in 46 countries
 with the guarantee that it could be given with complete safety to pregnant women and nursing mothers
 without any adverse effect on the mother and child. 
During the four years it was on the market doctors prescribed it as a nontoxic antidote to morning sickness and sleeplessness and it was sold by the

Thalidomide was a drug developed in 1954 by the Grunenthal GmbH,

 is a German pharmaceutical 
company and it marketed the drug under at least 37 names worldwide.
GmbH was a small private company set up after WWII as an 
offshoot of an old family firm that made
soap and detergents.
Its first pharmaceuticals were produced under foreign license,
which it called

was its own, a sedative discovered by accident in the spring of 
1954 by a 32 year old chemist and doctor,

(Of the Polish judicial medical experiments on him were concentration camp prisoners and 
forced laborers during the time of National Socialism accused.
He avoided arrest by fleeing to the western zones of occupation,
publicly known as his role as Scientific Director at the Stolberg pharmaceutical company

To exploit the postwar sleeping pill boom,
Grunenthal marketed it massively from October 1957 as a 
completely safe
completely atoxic
free of unpleasant side effects
of barbiturates.
The sales department called it 
"the apple of our eye"
because it was so profitable. From 1958 to 1961
they zeroed in on promoting it for use by 
expectant mothers.

During this time period the use of medications during pregnancy was not controlled, and drugs were not 
thoroughly tested for potential harm to the fetus. 
Thousands of pregnant woman took the drug to relieve
their symptoms. At that time scientist did not believe any drug taken by a pregnant woman could
pass across the placental barrier and harm the developing fetus.

Between 1957 to 1961 some 90,000 babies are calculated to have died
in spontaneous abortion,
 between 10,000 to 20,000 babies were affected by the drug, many
born with deformities :
Fin like hands growing out of the shoulders

stunted or missing limbs

deformed eyes and ears
ingrown genitals
no lungs

To make things even worse,
 the same birth defects are now being found in 
second and third generation 
Thalidomide users.

For nearly a half century, the privately owned company was silent and secretive about
the epic tragedy it created while earning a vast profit. Even before its release, the wife
of an employee gave
 birth to a baby without ears.
Grunenthal ignored the warning.
Within two years 
an estimated 
million people
in West Germany were taking the drug on a daily basis.

By early 1959, reports started to surface that the drug was toxic, with scores
of adults suffering from peripheral neuritis damaging the 
nervous system.
As profits kept rolling in, however
Grunenthal suppressed that information,
bribing doctors and pressuring critics and medical
journals for years. Even after an
Australian doctor connected the drug with deformed births in 1961,
it took four months for the company to withdraw the drug.
By then it is estimated to have affected 
pregnant women,
causing at least 90,000 miscarriages
thousands of deformities to the babies who

Previously secret documents revealed repeated warning to Grunenthal from 
doctors and distributors from as far afield as Sri Lanka and Lebanon.
It was said the documents also showed thalidomide was 
tested on gestating animals before it went on sale.
the first ever clinical trails were conducted in Australia in 1960 and used
pregnant women
rather than laboratory animals as test subjects.
At that time doctors were already allegedly warning Grunenthal
that their drug caused birth defects.
Throughout 1960 and 1961 hospitals and pharmacist were returning
their entire thalidomide stocks or refusing to buy or supply it.
As many as 10 Grunenthal staff had children with birth defects
after taking the drug between 1959 to 1961,
with similar number of deformities among children born to employees at its
British partner Distillers.

In house lawyers warned the company repeatedly in 1961 that it had 
"behaved improperly in failing to provide adequate warning to doctors and consumers,"
"had been negligent and was at great risk in legal proceedings," it added.

The horror of this story lives on today...

Why do people fear clowns? I think they are cute creatures, especially the ones that haunt my head. 
I have never been afraid of clowns. I think they are funny in their big shoes and red noses. I loved it when they would squirt the flower juice in peoples faces or when 20 of them would pile out of a small car.

According to some phobia studies, and estimated 20 to 30% of the entire population
find clowns scary, or at least a little unsettling.

coul ro pho bi a [kool-ruh-foh-bee-uh]
an abnormal fear of clowns

Symptoms of Coulrophobia consist of:
Feelings of
Your heart will start racing
You may have shortness of breath
You may start trembling
You will have an intense fear
You will have an overwhelming desire to flee
You will take extreme measures to avoid clowns.

A study conducted by the University of Sheffield found that children did not like clown decor in the hospital of physician office.
So it's probably not a good idea to decorate your childs bedrooms with a clown theme.

Clowns are 'uncanny'
"The subject of the 'uncanny' is...
undoubtedly related to what is frightening
-to what arouses dread and horror;
equally certainly, too, the word is not always used in a clearly definable sense,
so that it tends to coincide with what excites fear in general."
-Sigmund Freud, "The Uncanny"

Clowns are often portrayed as emotionally unstable or even psychotic in many forms
of media. The idea of a "killer clown" has been used in horror films and novels
for decades, and photos of serial killer John Wayne Gacy as a clown have been published many times.

Scary clowns in movies go as far back as the silent movie days when Lou Chaney Sr played a clown in the 1928 movie, Laugh Clown Laugh.

People are usually frightened by things which are wrong in some way, wrong in a disturbingly unfamiliar way.
Or does it have something to do with evolution? We have evolved to choose a mate that is healthy, and weird scary clowns may set off the same set of warning bells that told our ancestors to stay away from unfit partners.

According to Rami Nader, a psychologist and director of the North Shore Stress and Anxiety Clinic in North Vancouver, B.C., the psychological roots of the phobia may be traced to the fact that clowns are basically wearing funny disguises while displaying artificial emotions that perhaps hide their true feelings.

If your afraid of clowns your not alone: anti-clown celebrities include
P. Diddy
Johnny Depp
Carol Burnett 
Anthony Bourdain
So your not alone...

Chernobyl Aftermath

The disaster began after a system test on April 26th, 1986. The aftermath of the disaster is horrifying. I cannot imagine the sheer horror these people must be going through, today...2013.

When the city of Pripyat felt the explosion of reactor number 4 it took officials 36 hours to evacuate the city of 50,000. By then it was to late.  The men, women and children had already been exposed to the deadly radiation. 25+ years later, reactor 4 is still spewing the deadly radioactive crap.  What kind of mutants are coming from this disaster? 
Many of the children born today from parents who survived have weak immune systems and thyroid problems. 

What I find so amazing is a group of about 1200 "self settlers" moved back to the contaminated area only 3 months after the disaster mostly people over the age of 48.
Today about 230 of the "self settlers" remain. 
Nadejda Gorbachenko, 80, lives a few meters from the barbed wire fence of the exclusion Zone. She sneaks through a hole in the wire to collect mushrooms and berries for her own consumption. "When I see Police I hide in the bushes. Nobody will stop me."
This is just one of many women living in the area, all of them well into their 70's and 80's.
Maria Vitosh, 86.
Why have some thrived? Others...met their end. 

Inside of the entire "forbidden" zone, more than 10,000 people reside and the tourist arrive by the bus load.

The animal population in the area is thriving. There have been some mutations. 

 Plants and trees are thriving. Rare species such as the lynx and Przewalski's horses, eagles and owls thrive where humans fear to tread.
Bats live in the old houses and roe deer are abundant.

Would you visit Chernobyl today?
