“GOD WHAT A BEATING I’M TAKING”
This Article has been taken from a book I am writing with the same title: ‘The Day They Poisoned JFK’, my reason in publishing this Article like this prior to the book coming out is there has been too much selective reporting that have caused much confusion to those wishing to know the truth of JFK’s unrelenting horrendous chronic pain and suffering. Whilst thousands of books or articles have been written regarding JFK’s life, almost all but a handful have been on his assassination. However, Robert Dallek, (1.) Thomas Reeves, (2.) James Giglio, (3.) Irving Berstein, (4.) Nigel Hamilton, (5.) Richard Reeves, (6.) Symour Hersh, (7.) and Geoffrey Pernet (8.) have written very detailed accounts of JFK’s life from beginning to end. This can also be said in regards to Bill O’Reilly’s book Killing Kennedy (9.) and the movie JFK by Olive Stone. (10.) Sadly though, although of no fault of theirs they have all been denied full access to the true reason as to why JFK’s suffered the way he did from 1950 until his assassination in 1963.
This denial of full access to JFK medical records to ascertain the true reasons as to why JFK suffered the way he did especially in the last 13 years of his life, is a stain on the honesty of the medical profession and all that it stands for, being ‘do no harm’. If one is to to truly understand what happened one needs to sight ‘all’ JFK’s medical records in full and without the required medical specialist being in attendance ‘looking over one’s shoulder’. Whilst this maybe beneficial for some, it can also control what one sees and understands as most researchers only spend a couple of days at the JFK Library. The other denial is in regards to the lack of right to access JFK’s medical records and x-rays held at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Boston by JFK researchers, something even Robert Dellek JFK recognized biographer has been unable to do, to date. (11.) Once you have read this article you will understand why.
It’s clear that there has been a deliberate cover-up of the true cause of JFK’s horrendous unrelenting chronic back pain and mobility, and precisely when it started. Its clear that JFK by the time he reached 33  had musculo-skeletal pain as well as lingering child ailments which have been well documented by others mentioned above, so I will not cover such here. However, what have not been recorded until now is JFK’s ‘man-made‘ neuropathic pain of which he suffered from, for the last 13 years of his life. This ‘man-made‘ neuropathic pain suffered by JFK was caused by a poisonous injection of a too toxic chemical mix used as a positive ionic x-ray contrast medium (dye), whilst being at Lahey Clinic, now known as Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Boston.
This poisonous injection of a too toxic chemical mix used as an x-ray contrast medium (dye) was known as Iophendylate Pantopaque and was developed in partnership by Eastman Kodak and University of Rochester. (12.) This substance was found to be far too toxic for human use by the then Acting Chief of the Drug Division of the FDA a Walton Van Winkle MD Jr. when the New Drug Application on behalf of Eastman Kodak and University of Rochester was submitted by Lafayette Pharmacal to the FDA for approval. (13.) However, mysteriously 32 days later it received an FDA Marketing License, Walton Van Winkle MD Jr had been replaced by a R. P. Herwick MD who swiftly signed off on this previously refused Marketing License. (14.) How could such a toxic mix be approved when it consisted of the following poisonous toxic chemicals: ‘hydrochloric acid’, ‘Sulphuric acid’, ‘Benzene’, [a cancer forming carcinogenic] as well as 30.6% iodine. [that causes Hypothyroidism something JFK suffered from later] and other very toxic chemicals.
Whilst its hard to believe that such a poisonous toxic chemical mix was ever approved by the FDA such was verified later to be true by the manufacturer when he was cross examined at a later Court deposition. (15.) Further supportive evidence of these too toxic chemicals being used in its manufacture can also be found in an article published within a Medical Journal called Soc.Chem.Ind the title of the article being: The Preparation of iodine-containing x-ray contrast substances IV, Ethyl Iodophenyundecoate (“Pantopaque”) Vol 63 Pages 233-234. 1944. (16.)
What is most disturbing is that neuro-surgeons, orthopedic surgeons as well as diagnostic Neuro-radiologists then and today are very much aware of the fact that JFK was injected with this too toxic poisonous chemical mix known as Pantopaque, and have not share such with JFK researchers, especially those that accompanied these researchers to JFK Library and Museum. Please note, many JFK researcher’s have also mentioned the fact they together with a medical professional and in some cases a neurosurgeon have sighted these JFK x-rays, so why wasn’t such pointed out to these Researcher’s by these specialists, who were well versed in the condition known as Arachnoiditis, or Adhesive Arachnoiditis or today Chemically Induced Adhesive Arachnoiditis. [1993 DM]
So saying that, I will place these specific JFK’s x-rays here from left to right
1944, 1947 and two 1951
It’s interesting to further note, that the two specific 1951 x-rays showing the Pantopaque oil globules in-situ (to the right above) dated 9/6/51 are missing from the JFK x-ray list at the JFK Library. (20.) Why is this so? Yes, the 11/6/1950 Lumbosacral x-ray taken at Lahey Clinic is listed as (JFKPP-051-001) Film ID: 16789; 1 @ 14″ x 17″. Note: Severe Reticulation as well. Also the 3/15/1951 Lumbososacral JFK x-ray also taken at Lahey Clinic is also listed as followed: (JFKPP-051-002) Film ID: 16789; @ 14″ x 17″. Note: Serious reticulation in all films, so why are these other 1951 x-rays missing.
Above at the top of this article there is a large copy of one of these missing 1951 x-rays of JFK lumbar spine with the too toxic chemical mix in-situ, that’s the white blobs, which is the chemical oily mix, air and gas shows as grey or black in myelographic x-rays when injected into the subarachnoid space. However, since this injection and its caused ongoing unrelenting horrendous chronic neuropathic pain suffered JFK there has been a constructive endeavor to bury this horrendous abuse of America’s most beloved President, especially by the Lahey Hospital and Medical Center. Further disturbing documented evidence now unearthed by the author of this article show that in March 1949, April 1951, February 1951, and November 1951 patients died after being injected with this poisonous toxic chemical mix (17 & 18.) JFK was very very lucky to have survived after being injected on 6th of November 1950, right in the midst of this period. It wasn’t too long after JFK injection of this poisonous too toxic chemical mix that the developers Eastman Kodak and University of Rochester had the chemical formula changed after getting an approval to do so from the FDA. (19.) But sadly, one again others died post changes.
In fact, history tells us that a similar reaction to another too toxic chemical mix took place prior to the oil based Pantopaque being used on JFK, its name was Lipiodol which was also injected into the subarachnoid space, this took place between 1921 and 1946 it to was also an oil base toxic chemical mix used as an x-ray contrast medium. However, it was found to cause horrendous injury and death to patients, so doctors and specialists ceased using it and went back to using air. (20.)
It’s abundantly clear that attending Specialists assisting JFK researchers at the JFK Library knew of the Lipiodol issue and what had happen in regards to patients then, so the question that needs answering is to why did they not share such with the researcher’s especially when looking at JFK x-rays. For clearly the Pantopaque oil globules would have been seen, and such known consequences of such use and its direct link to JFK horrendous pain and mobility problems very clear to them. Or were those specific x-rays withheld from them also? I believe that is very unlikely as reference is made of a JFK 1954 x-ray being sighted (21.) which would still show the oil globules as seen above.
Last year being 2017 a Medical Article was published in a very prestigious Journal being the Journal of Neurosurg Spine, the title of this article was: ‘John F. Kennedy’s back: chronic pain, failed surgeries, and the story of its effects on his life and death’ it authors a T. Glenn Pait MD and Justin T. Dowdy MD. (22.) The first question that must be asked is why have such an article been written and published now 54 years after JFK’s assassination and more importantly 68 years since JFK was injected? The answer to that question lies in the content of this article, where on page two the authors state the following …’Dr White [JFK’s neurosurgeon] described Kennedy as “obviously incapacitated by pain in low back and down left leg” and questioned the indication for the lumbar surgery because air was the agent used for the myelogram and not Pantopaque’… . Whilst this statement was in reference to the period when JFK was being considered for back surgery, a few years earlier and Pantopaque had only been recently approved for use by the FDA questions were even being asked then due to it known dangers. So it begs the question, why was it finally used on him later. Furthermore, why did these two authors publish this article all these years later? It is my belief that it was written to once again to not only further distance the fact that JFK was injected with a mix of ‘hydrochloric acid’, ‘Sulphuric acid’, ‘Benzene’, 30.6% iodine and other very toxic chemicals but of those that developed, promoted and supported the manufacture of it, being Eastman Kodak and University of Rochester.
By doing, by publishing such an article on the centenary of JFK birth it would once again lay a false belief of the reader in regards to what truly caused JFK horrendous unrelenting chronic pain and physical suffering. However, after this article was published a Doctor by the name of David W. Mantik, MD. PhD. challenged these two authors denial that JFK was ever injected with the too toxic chemical mix known as Pantopaque, this rebuttal can be found in the comment section of the online publication of this article. David W. Mantik, MD. PhD. wrote …’Pait and Dowdy describe an air myelogram, but they do not cite a Pantopaque procedure. Although it was well known before our (independent) visits, Michael Chesser, MD, and I have both observed remnants of this dye in JFK’s autopsy x-rays at the National Archives and Records Administration’… . (23.) I would like to thank this doctor for his remarks for this rebuttal of his supports not only what I have written here, but my 26 years of research into this too toxic poisonous chemical mix known as Pantopaque.
A few months ago I sent my findings such as that above but in more detail with all supportive documented evidence in a package addressed to Massachusetts Congressman Joe Kennedy III at his Washington D.C. Office. I asked him that once he had read and vetted the contents please forward the documents and the attached covering letter to Caroline Schlossberg [Kennedy] JFK sole surviving sibling. On making contact with his office a month later was informed no such package ever arrived and was told “maybe it got lost in transit, but it does take awhile for packages to be cleared by the FBI, especially international ones”. To date, more than two months later its still missing!!!
Can you imagine the reaction of the American people when they finally find out what truly had been done to their beloved President, and the massive cover up in place even now 55 years later.
He survived as did I, for I too was injected.
