The world was shocked by the number of deaths caused Vioxx, but that number may be dwarfed by another NSAID, diclofenac. Vioxx was sold only by prescription. Diclofenac is sold both by prescription and over the counter. Our pharmaceutical regulating agencies turned a blind eye to the dangers and failed even to tell us the risks.
Albert Haines has spent 25 years of his life locked up. He was convicted of a minor crime and handed over to a mental institution. Psychiatrists have refused to let him out, even though they can't really say what's wrong with him and keep changing their diagnoses. They are a law unto themselves, and once entrapped by them, you are at..
A significant part of who we are is defined by the microflora of our digestive systems. If it's changed, even in the smallest way, by genetically modified foods, then we are changed. It's happening now. It's not science fiction.
Something rather strange is going on in autism research. Andrew Wakefield was smeared, his reputation trashed, his career torched, and his work labeled everything, including fraud. So why are researchers who have disavowed Wakefield and his work now citing his papers extensively?
Yet another cancer trial has been halted early for results claimed to be so good that it would be unethical not to give the active drug to the placebo group. And this treatment combines conventional medicine's two leading killer technologies, radiation and chemotherapy, into one big throat stuffer.
They’ve cut teacher salaries. Employees are being forced to take time off without pay. Class sizes are getting bigger and bigger. But when it comes to vaccinations, the sky’s the limit. The district is now doing door-to-door vaccinations. Unannounced. And they’ve taken a news crew around with them.
Much-demonized salt is nature's antidepressant. Doesn't being naturally happy sound ever so much better than taking an antidepressant that blunts your ability to feel? Antidepressants don't elevate a person's mood. They blunt emotions, effectively putting up a wall between you and your emotions. Salt isn't a drug. Your body needs it to..
Cantaloupes purchased from supermarkets like Walmart have sickened 55 people and killed 10. A mass production farm has been fingered as the culprit, but the reality is that it's the method of raising food that's at fault, not any specific producer. As is symptomatic in our society, the source of harm is not addressed. Instead, the focus..
Tweet It’s time for the naysayers to start looking beyond the ends of their collective noses and stop the collective chant against homeopathy and real science. by Heidi Stevenson A new study shows that the effects of a homeopathic preparation of glucose on arsenic-poisoned E. coli bacteria are significant. Researchers focused on..
Without considering drugs in the case of schizophrenics developing epilepsy, they have not considered the single most obvious and likely cause of epilepsy in them! That's not science. That's propaganda.
Tweet Italy’s Gran Sasso National Laboratory ran a three-year experiment that timed 16,000 neutrinos as they made a 730-kilometer, 2.43-millisecond, trip—and found that they make the trip a bit too fast—60 nanoseconds faster than the speed of light. It is, of course, contrary to Einstein’s basic relativity law stating..
Reports are now coming out showing that diabetes causes Alzheimer's. So what does this bode for the future of children with diabetes? Frankly, it doesn't look good. They may be facing Alzheimer's in their 40's, perhaps even earlier. Today's children face desperately bleak futures.
Tweet Troy Davis was falsely convicted for the murder of a policeman. There was no evidence. None, not one shred. There was eye witness testimony from nine people. Seven of them recanted with statements that they’d been coerced to testify. Fingers were pointed at another man as the killer, a man who was one of [...]
Tweet National Geographic reports that Prozac is killing off microbes in the Great Lakes. That sounds good, in a sense. It means that all the E. coli from factory farms may be getting poisoned by Prozac. But what about all the bacteria that’s naturally part of the ecosystem? Then, there’s the question of what it [...]
Tweet Superweeds are super in more than their pest resistance. They also grow at an amazing rate. These plants, which have gained these abilities by responding to the pressures created by genetically modified crops, especially Monsanto’s glyphosate-resistant crops, are posing an enormous danger to agriculture. Farmers are at a loss..
