Company Gouging Price Of EpiPens Is A Clinton Foundation Donor And Partner

The pharmaceutical company that distributes the EpiPen is also a Clinton Foundation donor.

Hillary Clinton criticized the company, Mylan, on Wednesday, calling its price hikes of the life-saving medical device “outrageous.”

“It’s just the latest troubling example of a company taking advantage of its consumers,” said Clinton.

But those remarks highlight Clinton’s radio silence on the price of the EpiPen, which has grown steadily since 2007, when Mylan acquired rights to sell the 50-year-old drug.

EpiPen injections, which help stop potentially fatal allergic reactions, cost $57 in 2007. They now run $609. According to CNBC, the price of EpiPens has increased at a steady rate in those nine years.

As of May 2011, the price was $165. That rose to $350 in 2014 and $461 last year.

The Foundation partnered with Mylan at a time when it was raising prices on the EpiPen, which had been distributed by Merck.

Women Nearly 3 Times Likely To Get Breast Cancer With Common Hormone Replacement Therapies

By Karen Foster

Scientists at the Institute of Cancer Research in London say the risks of taking the pills have been underestimated for years – and are actually 60 percent higher than thought.

The findings, based on a study of 39,000 British women tracked as they went through the menopause, will re-ignite a 20-year-old debate about the benefits and risks of taking HRT.

The research found women who took the combined form of HRT – which contains both oestrogen and progestogen – were 2.7 times more likely to develop breast cancer over five years than those who did not take the treatment...

Touchscreen chip flaw renders some iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices useless

Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus appear to be vulnerable to so-called “touch disease”, a hardware problem that is crippling phones, according to reports from users and third-party repairers.

The issue, which has been observed in iPhone 6s since the beginning of the year, seems to affect the touchscreen controller chips, resulting in problems for the high-end smartphones in responding to touch input.

Badly affected phones become next to useless. First the status bar becomes grey and flickers and the touchscreen becomes unresponsive, with users unable to control or use the smartphones without the touchscreen working.

Pesticide Used to Combat Zika-Carrying Mosquitoes in Florida Linked to Autism

Is pesticide spraying to kill mosquitoes causing autism? In the least, the government is spraying larvicides with great impunity in many neighborhoods throughout the U.S. in order to ‘combat Zika’ and other diseases said to be caused by mosquitoes. Little is known of the true ramifications for such hackneyed actions, but one study suggests that in places where mosquito pesticides are sprayed, a 25 percent increase in autism results.

FLINT 2.0? INDIANA RESIDENTS SUDDENLY EVICTED AFTER DECADES OF LEAD, ARSENIC CONTAMINATION

After decades of nearby industrial pollution, residents of the West Calumet Housing Complex in East Chicago, Indiana, were abruptly warned that they must vacate their homes for demolition given hazardous levels of lead and arsenic in the soil.

More than 1,000 residents of the 346-unit public housing complex were told last month by the city of East Chicago that they must find new housing, as the city planned to demolish all dwellings in the complex. Just days before, the city said residents would only have to temporarily relocate based on a US Environmental Protection Agency finding that soil around the complex contained toxic levels of lead and arsenic since at least 2014. Plans to remove the soil dated back to 2012.

"Somebody dropped the ball somewhere," state Sen. Lonnie Randolph of East Chicago told the Associated Press of shock among residents as warnings of toxicity rapidly escalated. "Maybe it was intentional, or maybe by mistake. Maybe it was negligence."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All city and county officials who allowed this toxic build-up in this area to happen, and to linger, should be tried, convicted, and serve hard time, as a lesson for any city or country official in this country even thinking about ignoring water quality.

Everyone who lived in the affected area should be tested for lead poisoning, and immediately. Through various treatments, you can get rid of lead in the system, but the damage done to young children is irreversible.

Big Biotech Looks to Make Third World Into West’s Genetically Modified Bread Basket

By Chris “Kikila” Perrin

GMOs (or Genetically Modified Organisms) — perhaps one of the sacred cow topics of anti-neoliberal, anti-globalization activist discourse, they are as confusingly scientific as vaccines and carry with them just as fervent criticism and defense.

For the most part, some of the suggested benefits of GMOs have fallen flat: Corporate claims that genetically modified crops provide an easy solution to the problem of world hunger have proven to be unsubstantiated, and the only positive results that GM crops tend to produce directly are those related to the wealth/poverty gap. Problematically, the biotech corporations that have created GM crops find refuge in the Global South — or so-called Third World — where corrupt governments appear happy to receive international money in exchange for turning their fields and populations into laboratories...

2,500 Native Americans Successfully Block Oil Pipeline Construction — State of Emergency Declared

Last week, a few dozen Native Americans showed up to protest the $3.8 billion, 1,172-mile-long pipeline that would cross right through their sacred land. As word spread, however, the few dozen turned into more than 2,500 native Americans. Because of the large turnout, a brief victory ensued for the people after the developers of the four-state oil pipeline agreed to halt construction until after a federal hearing in the coming week.

GOVERNMENT LOGIC — STATE NOW TAXING UBER, LYFT TO GIVE MONEY TO TAXI UNIONS

As Leopold Khor observed in his important book, The Breakdown of Nations, large organizations have a tendency to become too bureaucratic and rigidified to retain the resilience necessary to make adaptations to changes in their world. In the business world, instead of changing or downsizing, large corporations lean on the power of government to prop them up by implementing laws which grant them advantages over their smaller competition. The most recent case of corporations using government power to maintain a failing monopoly is taking place in the Massachusetts taxi service. Because of the much more efficient ideas of Uber and Lyft and the novel design of their platforms, the archaic taxi industry is in decline. Instead of adapting to the changing climate of smartphone-based systems, taxi unions are doing what monopolies do best — having the government stifle their competition to legislate themselves an advantage.

Yet, it's the most popular tank ever built.

This series will reveal the truth behind one of the worst tanks ever built. Namely, what it can and can't do (there's a LOT more of the latter), how and why it became what it is, how it compares to the other tanks out there, and more.

Ketamine, also called escatimine — which has a reputation behind the scenes as a party drug, known as ‘Special K,’ for its sedative and sometimes hallucinatory effects — is currently most widely employed as a veterinary tranquilizer, though the Food and Drug Administration first approved human use in 1970...

Their Hair Fell Out. Should the F.D.A. Have the Power to Act?

When the Los Angeles hairstylist Chaz Dean pitched his almond mint and lavender-scented hair care products — endorsed by celebrities like Brooke Shields and Alyssa Milano — he sold millions. But his formula got an unexpected result: itching, rashes, even hair loss in large clumps, in both adults and children.

More than 21,000 complaints have been lodged against his Wen Hair Care, and Mr. Dean, the blue-eyed, golden-haired stylist to the stars, has found himself at the center of a fierce debate over the government’s power to ensure the safety of a cosmetics industry with about $50 billion in annual sales.

The Santa Monica, Calif.-based national distributor of Mr. Dean’s hair care line is part of a beauty care trade association that has been aggressively lobbying Congress to block the passage of tough new legislation that would give the Food and Drug Administration the authority to test ingredients used in cosmetics and issue mandatory recalls for products found to be unsafe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am violently allergic to formaldehyde precursors, which are stunningly common in both lower end cosmetics and cleaning projects; however, my hare-brained, logic-challenged HMO Doctors did not discover this for me, after half a decade of utter misery.

What happened was that my doctors put me on a medication for which Pfizer was compensating doctors to prescribe, even though it was "off book" for my condition, meaning that the medication had never been tested against this kind of pain.

It was, therefore, not in their best financial interests to get to the root of the problem; so a series of tests for chemical sensitivities, which could have identified the culprit chemicals, was never ordered.

After coming back from a gig which Mike had in San Francisco, I went back to my orthopedist, who took x-rays of my feet, and declared that he could see nothing physical as the cause of the pain.

I remember coming home in tears, asking Mike when I had time in my schedule to be a hypochondriac.

About 40 minutes later, he had done the due dilligence on line, and realized that many people were highly allergic to both formaldehyde precursors, and other chemicals. We did a "chemical-ectomy" in our home that night, and the next day, I was walking without pain for the first time in half a decade.

On my follow-up visit to my orthopedist, I presented the research, and told him that if he had patients presenting these kinds of symptoms, but he could see nothing in the x-rays looking like the cause of the pain, to immediately order a series of chemical sensitivity screenings, because chemical allergies may well be the culprit.

I stormed out of that office, never to return to that HMO.

The two doctors who had originally prescribed me this "off the book" pain management product (not the orthopedist) were mysteriously gone from the HMO's on-line roster shortly after that.

But no, the companies manufacturing cosmetics and cleaning products do not have the right to poison the people who use their products for profit, period, end of discussion.

Here are a couple of useful links for research in this area;

Common Products Using Formaldehyde Precursors

Cosmetics Using Formaldehyde Precursors

Knowledge is power here. I would never want anyone to go through what I wend through, because of both my original ignorance of this information, and the medical establishment's ignorance of this information.

MICROSOFT INADVERTENTLY DEMONSTRATES THE INTRINSIC SECURITY PROBLEM OF INCLUDING A UNIVERSAL BACKDOOR IN ITS SOFTWARE BY ACCIDENTALLY LEAKING ITS "GOLDEN KEY"

Microsoft has inadvertently demonstrated the intrinsic security problem of including a universal backdoor in its software after it accidentally leaked its so-called "golden key"—which allows users to unlock any device that's supposedly protected by Secure Boot, such as phones and tablets.

The key basically allows anyone to bypass the provisions Microsoft has put in place ostensibly to prevent malicious versions of Windows from being installed, on any device running Windows 8.1 and upwards with Secure Boot enabled.

And while this means that enterprising users will be able to install any operating system—Linux, for instance—on their Windows tablet, it also allows bad actors with physical access to a machine to install bootkits and rootkits at deep levels. Worse, according to the security researchers who found the keys, this is a decision Microsoft may be unable to reverse.

Negative Rates for the People Arrive as German Bank Gives In

When the European Central Bank introduced a negative interest rate on lenders’ deposits two years ago, few thought things would ever go this far.
This week, a German cooperative savings bank in the Bavarian village of Gmund am Tegernsee -- population 5,767 -- said it’ll start charging retail customers to hold their cash. From September, for savings in excess of 100,000 euros ($111,710), the community’s Raiffeisen bank will take back 0.4 percent. That’s a direct pass through of the current level of the ECB’s negative deposit rate.
“With our business clients there’s been a negative rate for quite some time, so why should it be any different for private individuals with big balances?,” Josef Paul, a board member of the bank, said by phone on Thursday. “As it looks today, charges on deposits won’t be extended to customers with lower amounts” than 100,000 euros, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the proverbial financial "canary in the coal mine; look to see other banks, both inside, and outside of Germany, start to adopt this trend.

And no wonder banks now want to do away with cash; because with these negative rates, customers are going to look for other places than banks to stash their cash.

The purpose of a savings account USED to be to see a little extra added to that account on a monthly basis; now, that is no longer the case.

Doctors Name Monsanto’s Larvicide As Cause of Brazilian Microcephaly Outbreak.
A report from the Argentine doctors’ organisation, Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, challenges the theory that the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil is the cause of the increase in the birth defect microcephaly among newborns.

The increase in this birth defect, in which the baby is born with an abnormally small head and often has brain damage, was quickly linked to the Zika virus by the Brazilian Ministry of Health. However, according to the Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, the Ministry failed to recognise that in the area where most sick people live, a chemical larvicide that produces malformations in mosquitoes was introduced into the drinking water supply in 2014. This poison, Pyriproxyfen, is used in a State-controlled programme aimed at eradicating disease-carrying mosquitoes.

Obama’s GMO embarrassment: Why the new labeling bill just signed into law is a sham

It is known as the DARK Act — Denying Americans the Right to Know. It was signed by President Obama last week in the afterglow of the Democratic National Convention, without fanfare or major media coverage. The bill’s moniker is apt. With a few strokes of his pen Obama scratched out the laws of Vermont, Connecticut and Maine that required the labeling of genetically engineered foods.

He also nullified the GE seed labeling laws in Vermont and Virginia that allowed farmers to choose what seeds they wanted to buy and plant. And for good measure he preempted Alaska’s law requiring the labeling of any GE fish or fish product, passed to protect the state’s vital fisheries from contamination by recently approved genetically engineered salmon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, this legislation is a bloody sham; because at the end of the day, Obama is no less "owned" by Monsanto and the other GMO-creating companies than are prominent Republicans.

US State Dept employee confirms GMO golden rice is Trojan Horse crop

Companies that own patents on golden rice would be willing to make golden rice available at no cost if the countries involved would be willing to adopt US patent regimens to protect other GMO crops

EXCERPT: A couple of years ago we met with an employee of the US State Department who sat down to talk to us about the benefits of GMO crops for farmers and consumers in the Global South. We asked about whether or not farmers would have to pay a technology fee and purchase the Golden Rice seed each year. He said the companies that own the patents would be willing to make the Golden Rice and virus-resistant cassava available at no cost if the countries involved would be willing to adopt US patent regimens to protect other GMO crops. From a policy perspective, that raises the question of whether these crops are being developed as a humanitarian gesture or a means to ensure the profits of the companies who hold the patents.

The GMO Debate: One student’s experience of pro-GMO propaganda at Cornell University

I came back to Cornell a changed person, with a drastically different perspective. I was in for quite a shock, however: I sat in on a course entitled “The GMO Debate”. I was expecting members of an intellectual community coming together, with proponents and critics of GMO food each giving the best verified evidence they had to support their cause. Given all that I had learned about GMO agriculture, I was excited to participate for the “GMO skeptic” side.

The GMO Debate course, which ran in the fall of 2015, was a blatant display of unscientific propaganda in an academic setting. There were a total of 4 active professors in the course, and several guest speakers. They took turns each session defending industrial agriculture and biotechnology with exactly zero critical examination of GMOs. In spite of the course’s name, there was a complete lack of actual “debate”. Here are some of the more memorable claims I heard that fall semester:

* GMO food is necessary to feed the world
* there is no instance of harm from agricultural GMOs
* glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, is safer than coffee and table salt

F-35 targeting system laser will be 'almost impossible' to use in UK

US restrictions on the F-35 fighter jet's targeting system will make it “almost impossible” for training to be carried out in the UK, the Ministry of Defence fears – but its press office insists the constraints are normal.

The F-35's electro-optical targeting system (EOTS) includes a target designator laser and a laser rangefinder.

According to the Defence Ranges Safety Committee, the F-35 has only been cleared to use the designator laser “in the US under very tight controls”.

These include a ban on any optic devices being within 33km of the aircraft when the designator is switched on, and no observers being allowed within 9km of an F-35 operating its designator laser.

“If these restrictions stand, then training in the UK will be almost impossible,” an MoD civil servant wrote.

MYSTERY GMO WHEAT FOUND GROWING IN WASHINGTON STATE COULD AFFECT FOREIGN TRADE WITH U.S.

Genetically modified wheat not approved for sale or commercial production in the United States has been found growing in a field in Washington state, agriculture officials said Friday, posing a possible risk to trade with countries concerned about engineered food. The Food and Drug Administration says genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are safe and little scientific concern exists about the safety of those on the market. But critics say not enough is known about their risks, and they want GMOs labeled so people know what's in their food. On Friday, President Barack Obama signed into law a bill that will require labeling of genetically modified ingredients for the first time. The legislation passed by Congress two weeks ago will require most food packages to carry a text label, a symbol or an electronic code readable by smartphone that indicates whether the food contains genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.

iTunes users targeted with £20 purchase refund scam - how to protect yourself

Apple's iTunes customers are being warned to delete "scam" emails that are being sent to some customers claiming they have been charged more than £20 to download a song.

Reports have surfaced on social media of iTunes users receiving an email claiming to be from Apple, detailing an alleged recent song purchase from the iTunes Store that costs £23.34.

However, the aim appears to be to encourage them to click a link within the email to 'cancel and manage subscriptions', but in fact leads to a fraudulent website that asks users to enter their personal details.

Apple customers have also reported receiving emails claiming to be from iTunes that include a bill for Netflix.

New Study Shows Common Insecticide Destroys Fertility In Bees

By Derrick Broze

A new study provides further evidence that a commonly used insecticide is causing harm to the honey bee population, specifically the male drone honey bees.

A new study published on Wednesday in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B has found that a class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids do not kill drone honey bees, but instead drastically reduce the amount of live sperm produced by the male population. Researchers at Switzerland’s University of Bern found that the bees who ate pollen treated with neonicotinoids produced 39 percent less live sperm than the bees who did not eat the treated pollen...

GESTAPO IN THE USA: FCC INTIMIDATES PRESS AND KILLS FREE SPEECH AT 5G ROLLOUT

In a public meeting at FCC headquarters on July 14, the agency which once served the people instead acted like tyrannical thugs, in an escalating series of remarkable events.

Why the US Government Refuses to Turn on Monsanto

Many have pondered how Monsanto managed to rise to such a powerful position with respect to its influence over the U.S. government, and I think journalist Abby Martin may have pin-pointed the source of this obnoxious loyalty in her recent video report, "America's Monster" (below).

In it, she details Monsanto's history as an American "war horse," which began with its involvement in the Manhattan Project and the creation of the atomic bomb. Monsanto's contributions to the U.S. war machine continued during the Vietnam War, when the company became a leading producer of Agent Orange.

These war contributions appear to have cemented a long-lasting and loyal relationship between the U.S. government and Monsanto that continues to this day, to the detriment of the American people.

L Train Will Shut Down Between Manhattan and Brooklyn in ’19 for 18 Months

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority plans to close a tunnel that carries the L train, one of New York City’s most crowded subway lines, creating what officials acknowledge will be among the largest disruptions in the transit system’s history.

The decision, which officials announced on Monday, has been awaited for months by riders concerned about the tunnel’s fate. Now, they have their answer: The tunnel, which runs under the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn, will be shut entirely for a year and a half, starting in January 2019, to repair serious damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

The move promises to upend the commutes of tens of thousands of people along the popular line who will have to find other ways into and out of Manhattan.

If you enter an elevator in Toronto, have food and water with you (and maybe somethingt to pee in)

Trapped in a stuck elevator? The problem is worsening in Canada, experts warn
Canada, especially Toronto, is already plunging to an elevator crisis, experts say, with a large number of elevators in need of repairs, replacement.

Ben McIntyre, business manager for Local 50 of the International Union of Elevator Constructors in Ajax, Ont., said some landlords are simply unable or unwilling to spend the needed money. But the real problem, he said, is that routine maintenance has gone by the wayside as overloaded technicians attend to only the most pressing problems.

McIntyre also complains about the dominance of the few big players in the tight-knit industry.

“They really rule it with a tight fist and it’s all about bottom lines more than it is about customer satisfaction or for the riding public,” McIntyre said. “If they can cut a corner to make their bottom line look better ... they will. It’s only when an accident happens or something happens, then they start pointing fingers.”

House Passes GMO Labeling Bill, Obama Set To Sign

By Derrick Broze

A controversial bill that will prevent states from creating their own labeling standards for genetically engineered foods has passed the House of Representatives and now heads to President Obama’s desk.

On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure aimed at creating a federal standard for labeling genetically engineered or modified foods. Genetically modified or engineered seeds are engineered to have certain traits, such as resistance to herbicides. The majority of the United States’ corn and soybean crops are now GE, including a large portion that is used for animal feed...

How Not to Buy a Chevy Truck

Have any of you successfully bought a truck from a Chevy dealer and got the features you wanted? Please tell me how to do that. I have comments turned off, but if you have a suggestion on how to buy a Chevy truck – that I can test drive first – please tell me the secret at dilbertcartoonist@gmail.com.

Update: Even the Chevy.com website bait-and-switched me. I asked for features A, B, and C and it said two local trucks matched my requirements. The trucks were a different cabin type.

How to Download and Build Your Own House: “Affordable, Open Source, Modular, Ecological”

Like so many other institutions in our society, the idea of buying and cookie cutter house and being in debt with a mortgage to pay – indefinitely until you die – is out dated, and does nothing to promote freedom for the people living in it. Here's what you could do instead:

Researchers Find Roundup Responsible for Harmful Algae Blooms In Great Lakes

By Christina Sarich

Glyphosate, the main ingredient found in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide, Roundup, has poisoned Lake Erie.

Scientists from Ohio Northern University (ONU) in the U.S. have discovered that glyphosate is largely responsible for an increase in harmful algae blooms that contaminate lake water and kill off life dependent upon this habitat...

Des Moines Register: Is it GMO? "Smart labels" aren't enough

And we should have the right to know when a food product contains genetically engineered (GE) ingredients, especially as they carry greater and greater residues of this probable cancer causing chemical. Some states such as Vermont, Connecticut and Maine have voted to mandate this labeling. But Congress is trying to preempt these states from giving their citizens what they have asked for.

The latest ploy is so-called “smart labels.” This is the most recent attempt by big agribusiness, the giant food processors and members of Congress who submit to their lobbying pressure to keep customers in the dark about what’s in our food. Instead of a simple declaration in plain language on the product, a smart label will require scanning each item with a smart phone. Besides the unbelievable time and inconvenience involved, many Americans don’t have smart phones and can’t afford them. More than half of rural Americans don’t have smart phones, let alone the network coverage required to access the information.

It’s Official: Robots Are Now Injuring And Killing Humans

By Nicholas West

Even as robotics experts, universities and tech luminaries sound the alarm about the potential for a future filled with killer robots, this technology evidently already has arrived … minus the stringent ethics.

There can be no debate about the use of killer robots in the military. We are in the middle of an admitted global drone arms race in which there are mass civilian casualties occurring under a specious U.S. legal framework that has thus far not even excluded its own citizens from being targeted for assassination. There is also a host of ground- and sea-based systems that are equally lethal and continue to be tested in massive joint military exercises.

Then there is the artificial intelligence contained in autonomous vehicles and security robots...

Combining Childhood Vaccines AT ONE VISIT IS NOT SAFE

Although health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claim that childhood vaccines are safe and recommend combining multiple vaccines during one visit, a review of data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows a dose-dependent association between the number of vaccines administered simultaneously and the likelihood of hospitalization or death for an adverse reaction. Additionally, younger age at the time of the adverse reaction is associated with a higher risk of hospitalization or death.

And now the cover-up murders begin in Flint, Michigan: Water treatment plant foreman found dead… young mom murdered in her home after filing lawsuit against Michigan government

For those who wonder why, as the editor of Natural News, I carry a loaded weapon with me at all times, consider how often whistleblowers who threaten to expose government conspiracy crimes end up dead. In just the last few days, a water treatment plant foreman who could have testified against the corrupt government of Michigan was found dead in his home. On the exact same day, Sasha Avonna Bell, who spearheaded a lawsuit against the government over the lead poisoning of the Flint water supply, was found murdered.

How Monsanto invaded, occupied and now CONTROLS government regulators

(NaturalNews) If you've ever wondered why corporations seem to hold so much sway over our government, look no further than who's making all the decisions in Washington – and more importantly, where many of these people worked before being handed comfy, high-level positions at top government agencies.

You might be surprised at the number of senior advisors, chiefs of staff, judges, commissioners and others employed at agencies like the Department of Justice (DoJ), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who all have one thing in common: they used to hold executive-level positions at multinational corporations like Monsanto.

A Common Unlisted Food Additive May Induce Food Allergies

By Catherine J. Frompovich

What would you think if I told you that not all additives and preservatives are listed on food labels? You’d probably say I didn’t know what I was talking about. Well, many chemicals used in food processing don’t seem to make it into print on package labels! One is the synthetic preservative and antioxidant tert-butylhydroquionone (tBHQ) added to cooking oils, nuts, crackers, breads, waffles, fast and frozen foods.

TBHQ is a form of butane gas that’s used in welding or portable gas stoves! ...

The New Sex Abuse Scandal: 2,400 Doctors Implicated by Patients

More than 2,400 U.S. doctors have been sanctioned for sexually abusing their patients, according to a new report that, for the first time, surveyed records from all 50 states and reveals the nationwide scope of a problem that may be almost as far-reaching as the scandal involving Catholic priests.

State medical boards, which oversee physicians, allowed more than half the sanctioned doctors to keep their licenses even after the accusations of sexual abuse were determined to be true, according to a yearlong investigation by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This nation is going crazy!

It's time to take a closer look at those side effects of prescription anti-depressants, which 25% of Americans are now on!

Monsanto, Bayer And The Push For Corporate Cannabis

The health benefits of cannabis are now well established. As I analyzed previously, cannabis is a cheap, natural alternative effective for a broad range of conditions, and the non-psychoactive form known as hemp has thousands of industrial uses. At one time, cannabis was one of the world’s most important crops. There have been no recorded deaths from cannabis overdose in the US, compared to about 30,000 deaths annually from alcohol abuse (not counting auto accidents), and 100,000 deaths annually from prescription drugs taken as directed. Yet cannabis remains a Schedule I controlled substance (“a deadly dangerous drug with no medical use and high potential for abuse”), illegal to be sold or grown in the US.
