‘Oops… It Wasn’t Cancer After All,’ Admits The National Cancer Institute/JAMA

 | Dec 12, 2017 | Comments 0

… Back in 2012, The National Cancer Institute convened an expert panel to evaluate the problem of cancer’s misclassification and subsequent overdiagnosis and overtreatment, determining that millions may have been wrongly diagnosed with “cancer” of the breast, prostate, thyroid, and lung, when in fact their conditions were likely harmless, and should have been termed “indolent or benign growths of epithelial origin.” No apology was issued.  No major media coverage occurred. And more importantly, no radical change occurred in the conventional practice of cancer diagnosis, prevention, or treatment. …

If you look at the problem through just breast cancer overdiagnosis and overtreatment in the U.S. over the past 30 years, it has been estimated that approximately 1.3 million women were wrongly treated.  Most of these women still have no idea they were victims … .

Another topic I have been trying to spread awareness about is thyroid cancer overdiagnosis and overtreatment.  When I first reported on this two years ago in my article, Thyroid Cancer Epidemic Caused by Misinformation, Not Cancer, a series of compelling studies from around the world revealed that the rapid increase in diagnoses in thyroid cancer reflected their misclassification and misdiagnosis. … .

The Fuse in Palestine

Revolutionary Guard Commander Says Iran Will Support Palestinian Forces In Fight Against Israel


… The veteran Iranian general …, Soleimani expanded his preemptive war message, saying his nation is ready to support Palestinian forces in the Gaza Strip, days after the U.S. recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital unleashed anti-Israel and anti-US violence uniformly around the world. As a reminder, Palestinians claim Jerusalem’s eastern sector, where the mosque stands, as the capital of a future state, and they oppose the U.S. move. As we reproted (sic) last week, Hamas has repeatedly called for another Intifada against Israel in response, though so far protests have been limited.



According to prophecy, the antichrist will wage a military campaign against Israel, coming from the north. As I read it, a seven year peace accord will be signed giving antichrist the right to rule from Jerusalem. Add to that that the “mark of the beast” (of the antichrist) is the Islamic “bismillah“, and you have some intriguing context for the events described above. We will be watching.

The Syrian Fuse

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Sends Formal Message To US Military: Leave Syria Or Else

By Elijah J. Magnier – @ejmalrai

Well informed sources have said the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp Brigadier General Haj Qassem Soleimani sent a verbal letter, via Russia, to the head of the US forces commander in Syria, advising him to pull out all US forces to the last soldier “or the doors of hell will open up”. …

Soleimani asked the Russian responsible to expose the Iranian intentions towards the US: that they will be considered as forces of occupation if these decide to stay in north-east Syria where Kurds and Arab tribes cohabit together. …

Russia conveyed to the US that Iran will stay in Syria as long as President Assad decides, he who insists in liberating the entire territory from all forces without exception. …

Mike Pompeo, the US central Agency Director, said last week that he had sent a letter to Soleimani expressing his concern about Iran’s intention to attack American interests and “will hold Soleimani and Iran accountable for any attack in Iraq”. …

Sources in the area believe it is not unlikely that Kurdish groups – operating in al-Hasaka and who are faithful to the government of Damascus – are willing to be spearheaded against the US forces. Many of these groups remained loyal to Syria: they reject any occupation forces on its land or the partition of the country. …

The American Fuse

After listing enough terrifying statistics from the car sales industry to convince us all that it is a dead man driving, Tyler Durden, of Zero Hedge drops the last wrench:

The key data which seems to suggest that the auto bubble may have run its course comes from the following charts which reveal that traditional banks and finance companies are starting to aggressively slash their share of new auto originations while OEM captives are being forced to pick up the slack in an effort to keep their ponzi schemes going just a little longer… (Signs of the Peak: These 10 Charts Reveal and Auto Bubble on the Brink, 12/8/17)

The Chinese Fuse

China Systemic Risk: HNA Group Denies Liquidity Problem, It’s Only “End-Of-The-Year Tightness”

Every few days at the moment, it seems, we return to the subject of systemic risk in China related to its big four highly-indebted conglomerates, HNA, Anbang, Evergrande and Dalian Wanda.

Our main source of concern recently has been HNA, after it issued a bond with less than one year to maturity with the extortionately high coupon of 9%. … The reason for our continuing focus on HNA is its $28bn of short-term debt which matures before the end of next June, much of it accumulated during a binge of acquisition-driven growth … .

Last week, as we discussed, S&P downgraded HNA’s credit rating by one notch from b+ to b, five levels below investment grade. in another sign that HNA is under pressure … CEO Adam Tan announced that it was ditching its acquisitive strategy, while considering the IPO of Gategroup, a company it only acquired last year for $1.5 billion. …

We also noted how HNA businesses, even ones with supposedly good credit ratings, were stepping up fundraising moves in the domestic bond market at high coupon rates. For example, Hainan Airlines, the company’s core business, issued bonds at junk rates despite having “top ratings from local credit assessors”. …

Although cancellations of bond offerings in China had reached their highest level since April, due to the rout in the domestic market, we remarked how HNA didn’t appear to have that “luxury”. While it may not have the luxury, it’s been forced into cancellations. On Wednesday, Hainan Airlines scrapped a 1 billion yuan ($151.2 million) of perpetual bonds to repay a maturing debt. …

On Tuesday, S&P cut its long-term credit rating on another HNA unit, Swissport Group Sarl to B-, a massive six levels below investment grade. The reason for the downgrade…concerns about its Chinese parent. Also on Tuesday, HNA Investment Group, a unit specialising in real estate and hotel management, scrapped a planned 5.22 billion yuan ($790 million) after failing to get regulatory approval.

A sign that a company’s financial position is becoming critical is when company executives make public pronouncements that all is fine … . HNA has moved into this stage with both the Financial Times and Bloomberg reporting on interviews they’ve had with an HNA director. The FT first.

HNA Holdings Group has dismissed concerns about the group’s liquidity but admitted to end-of- the-year tightness, as Chinese banks eke out the remainder of their lending quotas … . In recent weeks HNA has extended the payment period for a loan from its Swiss entity, Gategroup, to another affiliate and has delayed payments to aircraft lessors, raising concerns about the group’s liquidity.
… Speaking to Bloomberg, Zhao sounded more adamant that a default is not in prospect.

Board director Zhao Quan said in an interview Friday that … “Currently we have a healthy and stable debt structure … . The high interest rates in December are for all companies, not just for HNA. HNA’s cash flow is stable currently.”
… As we were preparing to publish, a the following Bloomberg headlines crossed our screens.


This follows a similar internal warning at Bank of America in July … .

U.S. Indo-Pacific

The New Great Game moves from Asia-Pacific to Indo-Pacific

Is the world’s center of gravity shifting to the heart of the Indo-Pacific – a new pivot to Asia?

 DECEMBER 7, 2017


In the context of the New Great Game in Eurasia, the New Silk Roads, known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), integrates all of China’s instruments of national power – political, economic, diplomatic, financial, intellectual and cultural – to shape the 21st century geopolitical/geoeconomic order. BRI is the organizing concept of China’s foreign policy for the foreseeable future … .

The Trump administration’s reaction to the breath and scope of BRI has been … a terminological switch from what was previously known as Asia-Pacific to “Indo-Pacific.” … US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson could not have stated it more bluntly:

The world’s center of gravity is shifting to the heart of the Indo-Pacific. The United States and India – with our shared goals of peace, security, freedom of navigation, and a free and open architecture – must serve as the eastern and western beacons of the Indo-Pacific. As the port and starboard lights between which the region can reach its greatest and best potential. …

Indo-Pacific directly refers to the Indian Ocean stretch of the Maritime Silk Road, which as one of China’s top connectivity routes, features prominently in … markets … access … .

Indo-Pacific includes South Asia and the Indian Ocean. So, from an American point of view, that does imply elevating India to the status of a rising global superpower able to “contain” China. …

As far as New Delhi is concerned, embracing the Indo-Pacific concept entailed quite a tightrope act. … India, China and Russia are BRICS members … and until recently India was also participating in BRI.

But the … China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a key BRI node (traverses) the sensitive region Pakistan defines as Azad Kashmir and India as Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. And right on cue … New Delhi unveiled what might be construed as a rival BRI project: the Asia-Africa Growth Corridor (AAGC) – in partnership with Japan. AAGC could not be more “Indo-Pacific,” actually delineating an Indo-Pacific Freedom Corridor, funded by Japan and using India’s know-how of Africa, capable of rivaling – what else – BRI. …

And adding to AAGC comes the Quadrilateral, which the Japanese (hope will stop China’s) “belligerence in the South China Sea” which imperils what the US Navy always describes as “freedom of navigation”. …

Japan … fearing China’s fast military modernization, will buy more US weapons. At the same time, New Delhi and Canberra are also quite worried about China’s economic/military onslaught.

Essentially, AAGC and the Quadrilateral link India’s Act East Policy with Japan’s Free and Open Indo-Pacific strategy. …  There are reasons to worry that this new configuration might actually evolve into a stark economic/military polarization of Asia. …

(China’s) BRI enjoys a substantial head start. Beijing’s vast reserves are already geared towards investing in Asia-wide infrastructure … . In contrast, New Delhi barely has enough industrial capacity for India’s own needs. … All eyes are on December 10-11, when India will host a trilateral Russia-India-China – all BRICS members – at the ministerial level.
