US medical care is a monopolybased on fraud

US health care costs can be controlled, but not if the system is run as a criminal monopoly based on fraud and intimidation.

The change would be simple to make...

Enforce the law.

No other business in the US is allowed to collude on pricing.

No other industry in the US is allowed to charge ANYTHING it wants without disclosing costs before delivering the service.

No other industry is allowed to operate without competition.

All these things are illegal - but no one will enforce the law and the news media says nothing about it.

Netflix begins SCIENCE PURGE to remove all genetics education from science videos in order to appease Left-wing “gender fluid” lunatics like Bill Nye

People laughed when I predicted in this Bill Nye story about how he thinks transgenderism is “evolution” that California would begin purging genetics education from its textbooks to appease the lunatic Left. Not even two weeks after my prediction, Netflix has already begun its Orwellian purge of science education from older videos, “stealth editing” genetics and sex expression information out of them in order to conform to the “gender fluid” lunatics of the insane, delusional Left.

Yes, the left-wing “book burnings” have begun, and the Left is now targeting genetic science as its first priority of destruction.

To accomplish this Orwellian goal of “knowledge totalitarianism,” Netflix has quietly removed 76 seconds of video from Bill Nye’s original 1996 television series on probability which explained how the sex of a child is determined at conception by genetics and probability.

Science paper on vaccines accidentally admits most flu shots don’t work

Earlier this month, the University of Ghent, Belgium, released a paper where it accidentally admitted that most flu shots are continuously out of date and therefore don’t work.

“Current flu vaccines are only effective against virus strains that match the vaccine strains. Consequently, the strains in the human flu vaccines are updated every few years, based on recommendations by the World Health Organization,” the press release read.

They are not the only ones to admit that vaccines are a fraud. Previously, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also agreed that the flu shot fails most of the time, as reported by Vaccine Impact. In fact, instead of preventing disease, flu shots can make people more susceptible to disease.

The noise pollution map of America: Researchers say fracking, mining and other human activity is now so loud it is drowning out nature and putting animal lives at risk

Scientists measured sound levels at 492 places - from city parks to remote federal wilderness.

They calculated that in nearly two-thirds of the Lower 48's parks, the noise can at times be twice the natural background level because of airplanes, cars, logging, mining and oil and gas drilling.

FORMER PRESIDENT OF MERCK LED SECRET BIOWARFARE PROGRAM, INFLUENCING EXPERIMENTS ON AMERICANS

Merck & Co. is the world’s largest vaccine manufacturing corporation, and is one of the largest pharma companies in the world. They created such things as the MMR vaccine, and the HPV vaccine Gardasil.

As a corporation that has affected the lives of almost everyone around us in the Western world, with most people receiving their vaccinations that are known to do damage, we should know their history.

In this article, we will examine Merck’s connection to biological warfare, and the implications of that connection. Merck & Co. is not to be confused with the German “Merck KGaA,” but they both originate from the original German Merck. Merck was founded in 1668, in Germany. By 1887, a US division of Merck called Merck & Co. was set up in New York by George Merck. George Merck moved to NY in 1891.

In April 1917, as the US entered the Great War (WWI), the government announced the seizure of corporations affiliated with Germany.

How Prison Labor is the New American Slavery and Most of Us Unknowingly Support it

The USA uses a lot of prison labor.

If you buy products or services from any of the 50 companies listed below (and you likely do), you are supporting modern American slavery

With 5 percent of the world’s population and 25 percent of the world’s prison population, the United States has the largest incarcerated population in the world. No other society in history has imprisoned more of its own citizens. There are half a million more prisoners in the U.S. than in China, which has five times our population. Approximately 1 in 100 adults in America were incarcerated in 2014. Out of an adult population of 245 million that year, there were 2.4 million people in prison, jail or some form of detention center.

The vast majority – 86 percent – of prisoners have been locked up for non-violent, victimless crimes, many of them drug-related.

Gluten-free warning: Ditching bread could knock YEARS off your life

A study published in the British Medical Journal has discovered ditching whole grains could shorten your life by putting you at greater risk of death from cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.

Whole grains - which include whole-wheat bread, rye and barley - boost your heart health, according to the group of scientists from Harvard and Columbia University.

Indeed, they found for every three additional servings per day of whole grains there was a 25 per cent reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

Their research, conducted over 26 years, confirms for the first time that ditching gluten when you don’t suffer from coeliac disease has no benefits to your heart.

Bill Nye Continues to Pleasantly Disappoint

Bill Nye has gone full Leftard.

I can understand when someone seemingly less intelligent is brainwashed into towing the establishment line. However, I have the feeling Bill Nye knows better than to believe the propaganda he is shoveling.

As per the source article, they're trying to drop Bill Nye's prior, more scientific stance on gender determination down the memory hole.

It amazes me how the leftists think they can fool everyone in the age of the internet. I'd pay good money to see Bill Nye in a room with actual scientists in a fairly moderated debate. We know that will never happen, but one can dream.

Illegal arsenic levels in baby rice food products

Almost half of baby rice food products contain illegal levels of inorganic arsenic despite new regulations set by the EU, according to researchers from Queen's University Belfast.

Rice and rice-based products are a popular choice for parents, widely used during weaning and to feed young children due to availability, nutritional value and relatively low allergic potential.

But rice has around 10 times more inorganic arsenic than other foods and chronic exposure can cause a range of health problems.

Developmental issues, heart disease, diabetes and nervous system damage have all been linked to over-exposure.

Child suicide attempts DOUBLED in the last decade, shocking figures reveal

The number of children hospitalized for suicide or self-harm more than doubled during the last decade, new research reveals.

Data from 32 children's hospitals across the US shows around 120,000 under-17s have been treated for attempts to take their own life since 2008.

But the bulk of that figure came in recent years.

In 2008, suicide attempts or suicidal thoughts accounted for 0.67 percent of child cases in these hospitals.

By 2015, that figure had more than doubled to 1.79 percent.

Crack in Antarctica's Ice Shelf Branches Out: How Long Until a Massive Iceberg Breaks Away?

In December 2016, NASA reported that a huge crack in the massive continent appeared on satellite imagery. At the time, it was reportedly 300 feet wide and stretched for 70 miles.

The massive crack is in Larsen C, a shelf floating off the Antarctic Peninsula.

Experts warned that when the crack eventually spreads across the entire ice shelf, it will create an iceberg the size of the state of Delaware.

It looks like that prediction is being proven correct.

SOUND OF SPACE: NASA's Cassini brings back shocking data and recording from Saturn's Rings

NASA has received the sounds of Saturn back from its Cassini spacecraft – and scientists were surprised to hear nothing.

As Cassini embarks on its grand finale – which will see it dive in and out of Saturn’s rings over the next few months before it plunges to its death – ground control has received audio back from the spacecraft.

It is the first time that scientists have been able to hear the sounds of Saturn and were expecting to hear something similar to what the Juno space probe picked up around Jupiter – a loud spooky roar.

However, NASA scientists heard nothing, barring some static, confirming that the voids between Saturn’s rings are virtually empty.

Cassini ran through the 'big empty'

The American space agency says the Cassini satellite encountered very few particles as it dived between Saturn and its rings last week.

There were fears that the probe might hit fragments of ice or rock, and that these could cause significant damage.

Cassini made the plunge with its radio dish pointing forward like a shield.

But the latest analysis indicates there were hardly any impacts and those particles the probe did strike were only smoke-sized.

Bumblebees: Pesticide 'reduces queen egg development'

Use of a common pesticide in spring could have an impact on wild bumblebees by interfering with their life cycle, a UK study suggests.

The team, who looked at wild bumblebees caught in the English countryside, say the insecticide, thiamethoxam, reduces egg development in queen bees.

They say this is likely to reduce bee populations later in the year.

Thiamethoxam is one of three neonicotinoid insecticides currently restricted for use by the EU.

Harvard Immunologist: Unvaccinated Children Pose Zero Risk

It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide. You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines – and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children – is not consistent with such a statement. I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases.

Toxic malaria vaccine to be tested in Africa, even after Health Ranger reports on a botanical alternative with an astounding 100% cure rate

The Health Ranger recently reported on a study published in the journal Phytomedicine, which describes how the Artemisia annua plant saved 18 patients in the Congo who were suffering from drug-resistant malaria that was totally unresponsive to any western medical treatment. When the patients failed to respond to ACTs, doctors tried the dried leaves of the Artemisia annua plant in a final bid to save their patients’ lives. After only five days of treatment, all 18 patients were 100 percent recovered, and blood tests revealed absolutely no remaining parasites in their blood.

If a naturally occurring, freely available plant medicine is available to treat drug-resistant strains of malaria, and other preventative measures have already turned the tide in the fight against this disease, any thinking person has to wonder why the BMGF, the WHO and others are suddenly pushing for the release of this new vaccine.

Toxic malaria vaccine to be tested in Africa, even after Health Ranger reports on a botanical alternative with an astounding 100% cure rate

Though malaria is a virtually unknown disease to many in the U.S., it is a global menace that affects upwards of 212 million people annually, killing close to half a million in any given year. In the past, the medical approach to the treatment of malaria has been to prescribe a type of drug called Artemisinin Combination Therapies (ACTs). However, on the eve of World Malaria Day – which falls on the 25th of April each year – the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that it will be starting to test a new anti-malaria vaccine in the fields of Kenya, Ghana and Malawi, beginning in 2018. Though scientists involved with the development of the vaccine have called this “great news,” insisting it will “make a real difference,” is this vaccine really necessary, and will it live up to the hype?

Air circulating on planes can be TOXIC and cause seizures, nausea and breathing difficulties, flight attendants claim

Most of today’s planes have systems in which the cabin contains a mix of recycled air and warm compressed air drawn from their engines, a process known as 'bleed air'.

There are seals designed to keep oil and bleed air apart, but they can leak or fail and organophosphates contained in heated engine oil can contaminate the unfiltered bleed air that is pumped into the aircraft cabin.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the only aircraft where this does not occur, as it uses electric compressors that take their air from the atmosphere.

Those who are campaigning for recognition of the syndrome say airlines should install bleed air filters on existing aircraft to protect crew and passengers.

Yet the campaigners have faced an uphill battle in convincing the public thanks to aviation industry and medical professionals who have produced conflicting studies or shrugged them off as conspiracy theorists.

Records Show Girl Begged for Her Life as Officers Dehydrated Her to Death

They murder, by torture, white people too.

Days passed with Jensen not receiving any medical treatment until, finally, it happened. She was found dead in her jail cell, the result of a jail which didn't attempt to meet her physical or medical needs, according to the family.

The Salt Lake City Tribune uncovered internal documents which declare her death attributable to natural causes. A Utah medical examiners report the family classified the 21-year-old woman's death as "natural” a result of cardiac arrhythmia caused by opiate withdrawal and dehydration.

While opiate withdrawal isn't preventable in a jail were opiates aren't given to inmates, dehydration is certainly something which could have been addressed by a trained and licensed medical doctor, who would have most certainly ordered fluids be given intravenously. That basic level of care wasn't given to Jensen and she succumbed to her illness.

The Sheriff runs the jail. In the end this death is on him. He is not a hero.

A jury recommended Monday that charges be brought against seven Milwaukee County jail staffers in the dehydration death of an inmate who was allegedly denied water for seven days.

The Associated Press reported the jury heard jail staff testimony and considered evidence from county prosecutors during a six day inquest. Jury members ultimately decided there was probable cause that 38-year-old Terrill Thomas was abused before his death on April 24, 2016.

Lab-Grown Meat Coming to Supermarket Shelves Soon?

If this Silicon Valley food-tech startup has its way, its lab-grown meat—which includes chicken, duck and beef—will be on a supermarket shelf near you within the next five years.

“[We’re] trying to put products on the shelves by 2021/2022,” Uma Valeti, Memphis Meats co-founder and CEO, tells FOX Business.

In March, the company announced that it created the “world’s first chicken strip from animal cells,” following their animal-free meatball debut in 2016. Lab-grown beef was previously developed in 2012 by a group of Dutch scientists.

“Essentially, we are taking a number of animal cells, giving them clean and nutritious food and then we watch them grow into a muscle. We harvest that muscle and then cook it,” Valeti says.

The whole process from start to finish takes about four to six weeks, depending on the texture. Valeti says the company’s current main goal is to raise capital and lower their production costs, in order to quickly bring the product to market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Humankind has eaten meat for a very, very long time, but there may be a point, economically, where this will not be economically feasible for a lot of people.

Here on Oahu, even with the leanest, and cheapest cuts, the price points here are....pretty terrible, even for the cheapest ground beef available.

But before this is allowed to be put into the market place, and "blessed" by the FDA, I want to see long term health studies on the bodies of meat-eating animals, to insure that this stuff is really safe for humans.

VACCINE INDUSTRY GOES “NUCLEAR” IN PUSH FOR NEW LAW THAT WOULD DENY YOU YOUR JOB IF YOU AREN’T VACCINATED

North Carolina Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, a Republican, has introduced new legislation that, taken to its logical end, might eventually provision for employers to force their employees to be vaccinated under the guise of “wellness.”

House Resolution 1313, known as the “Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act,” contains certain provisions for “disease prevention” that, should employees refuse them, might end up costing them their jobs. That, or employees could face penalties in the form of ostracization or even higher insurance rates.

Based on the legislation’s open-ended language, employees could one day be refused the option of rejecting whatever their employers decide is appropriate for wellness and disease prevention, including government-recommended vaccines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Am I ever glad, right now, that I am an entrepreneur with very happy clients!!

I am not anti-vax, per se, but think that individuals need to know the benefits/risk ratio of what they allow to be placed in their bodies, and make the decision to vaccinate or not, on the basis of sound fact.

Getting this right taken away from employees is draconian in the extreme, and deplorable.

Tomahawk missile strike on Syria was ‘after-dinner entertainment’ – US commerce secretary

Wilbur Ross is the guy who bailed Trump out in the early 90's with Rothschild money. Sounds like a real sicko IMHO!

The 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles the US launched against Syria last month was just “after-dinner entertainment,” which “did not cost the president anything,” the US commerce secretary said, while President Trump called the attack a “tough decision.”

While the estimated cost of the strike ranged from roughly $60 million to $100 million depending on which Tomahawk missile modification was used, Ross stated that it “didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment.”

Before teens swarmed train, crime on BART was already on the rise

Crime on BART was on the rise before a swarm of 50 or so teens robbed passengers on a train last week and BART police were already on the case.

On April 22, about 50 to 60 teens rushed a BART train in Oakland and robbed seven people, drawing widespread scrutiny of the agency. But the incident was one moment in a growing trend, the chief said.

Jennings said since March 11, BART police arrested 19 people ages 12 to 21, usually working in concentrated groups,though he added this particular group apparently came from a nearby party.

It was broken up by gunfire,he said,and they converged on the BART station.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A jury on Monday recommended criminal charges against seven Milwaukee County jail staffers in the dehydration death of an inmate who went without water for seven days.

The jury's recommendation came after a six-day inquest that included testimony from jail staff and evidence from county prosecutors. The jury found probable cause for "abuse of a resident of a penal facility" in the death of 38-year-old Terrill Thomas on April 24, 2016.

"This isn't the first time this happened. This is a pattern," Assistant District Attorney Kurt Bentley said.

The jail is overseen by conservative firebrand Sheriff David Clarke, but the inquest did not target him. Clarke, who has been frequently mentioned as a possible Trump administration appointee, has declined to comment on Thomas' death but did issue a statement in March noting Thomas' criminal background.

Energy drinks found to be shockingly toxic to the human heart

The research team used an electrocardiogram (often called an ECG or EKG) to monitor the participants’ hearts’ electrical activity during the 24-hour period following the beverage consumption. As reported by NBC News, “An ECG change known as QTc prolongation and sometimes associated with life-threatening irregularities in the heartbeat was seen after drinking the energy drink, but not after drinking the caffeine beverage, the study team reports.“

The authors of the study say that several drugs have actually been pulled from the marketplace for causing similar irregularities in heart function. The team explains that the study subjects’ blood pressure increased by up to 5 points after consuming the energy drink, while consumption of the caffeine-only beverage yielded a modest blood pressure increase of just one point.

While the researchers say that these changes are not necessarily harmful for healthy individuals, they could prove hazardous for people with certain heart conditions.

Before you reach for that diet soda, read this

According to research done by the Boston University School of Medicine, there appears to be a link between diet soda and an increased chance of stroke and dementia, leaving those who drink diet soda daily almost three times as likely to fall victim to one of the two maladies.

"This included a higher risk of ischemic stroke, where blood vessels in the brain become obstructed, and Alzheimer's disease dementia, the most common form of dementia," Matthew Pase, a Boston University School of Medicine neurologist and the lead author of the study published in the journal Stroke, told The Washington Post.

SSRI Use Tied to Risk of Intracranial Hemorrhage

The investigators found that the use of all drugs that affect serotonin reuptake were associated with some increased risk of ICH compared to those using tricyclic antidepressants (relative risk (RR)= 1.17; 95% CI, 1.02-1.35), but these risks were increased by 25% among the participants taking the strongest SSRIs (RR= 1.25; 95% CI, 1.01-1.54) compared to those taking the weakest. Incremental increases between the strengths of different agents were associated with more modest increases in risk, which the authors noted accounted for the addition of relatively few new ICH events.

Concomitant use of oral anticoagulants among people taking SSRIs contributed to a significantly higher increased risk for ICH (RR=1.73; 95% CI, 0.89-3.39). The RR across all groups (high, medium, and low-strength SSRIs, with and without anticoagulants) was highest during the first 30 days of use, decreasing thereafter.

Flashback 2009: GERMAN CHANCELLOR, MINISTERS GET SPECIAL VACCINE WITHOUT SOFT KILL INGREDIENTS

Spiegel Online is reporting that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and government ministers will receive a special, additive-free H1N1 vaccine. “The Vakzin [vaccine] does not contain disputed additives — contrary to the vaccine for the remainder of the population,” reports the newspaper.

Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, is shown here hobnobbing with fellow minions of the elite, Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy.

“Critics argue that Adjuvantien [adjuvants in the vaccine] could lead to increased inoculation reactions such as headache or fever.” The German government elite and the armed forces will receive Celvapan, an adjuvant-free vaccine manufactured by Baxter. The German public will receive a vaccine produced by GlaxoSmithKline with adjuvants.

TEL AVIV – In a radio interview last night, Jackie Mason, the famous standup comic who dubs himself “The Ultimate Jew,” declared that President Donald Trump is “even more Jewish than me.”

Jackie is still funny!

Mason quipped:

He’s even more Jewish than me. I thought I was an Orthodox Jew but he is much more Orthodox than me because every time he talks it’s all about how he could help Jews and protect Jews. And every child he has is looking for someone to marry that’s a Jew.

They go to shul [synagogue] even when there’s no reason for it. He creates Jewish holidays that don’t even exist. His son-in-law is not only Jewish but he’s Orthodox. And his daughter became even more Orthodox than the husband. So, he can’t even go with them to a restaurant because as soon as they sit down they complain that it is not Kosher enough.

“I think he forgot he’s a gentile altogether,” Mason said of Trump. “Pretty soon he’ll be wearing that yalmukah (kippah) every time he goes to the White House.”

Health Warning by INH ResearchMay 1, 2017

Think you need to go to your local drugstore to get prescription medication? A new study finds that all you need to do is turn on your faucet.
Researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey and the Environmental Protection Agency tested water from 25 drinking water treatment plants across the U.S.
They found 47 different pharmaceuticals in the supposedly clean water being sent to homes. One sample alone contained an incredible 41 different drugs. They detected an average of 8 pharmaceuticals across all samples.
Not a single sample was drug-free.

Incredibly, the U.S. government does not regulate drugs in drinking water. Water utilities don’t filter them out. They don’t even test for them.

MONSANTO ACCUSED IN COURT OF CONDUCTING AN ARMY OF SHILLS TO CRACKDOWN ON NEGATIVE ONLINE COMMENTS

In a San Francisco federal court case, the plaintiff accused GMO giants Monsanto of hiring third-parties who hide their association with the company to respond to negative online comments, also known as ‘shills’.

The case challenges Monsanto’s corrupt relationship with members of the Environmental Protection Agency and their attempts to manipulate scientific publications and crack down on online dissent. Monsanto’s ‘Let Nothing Go’ campaign allegedly hired online ‘shills’ to quickly respond to social media chatter about the carcinogenic properties of their ‘RoundUp’ product.

The plaintiff claims to have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a result of exposure to glyphosate in Monsanto’s ‘Roundup’ product, and believes that Monsanto aggressively attempted to remove all warnings of the risks surrounding the pesticide.

See below the accusation recorded in a United States District Court litigation summary:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When a corporation continues to push (and be allowed to push) a product which has been proven to be carcinogenic, why am I not surprised at their behaviour here?!?

When a toxic product is allowed to be sold, it simply fattens the wallets of the medical/industrial complex in this country, and that is why medicine, as it is practiced in the United States, is never about wellness, but always about profit.

100% of honeybee colony food found to be heavily contaminated with toxic pesticides

Honeybee colonies were found to be heavily laden with toxic pesticides, according to a recent study. As part of the study, researchers at Cornell University examined 120 honeybee colonies placed near 30 apple orchards around New York state. The bees were allowed to forage for a few days during the flowering season. The research team then assessed each colony’s beebread to check for pesticide residues. Beebread refers to the honeybee food stores that were made from gathered pollen.

The research team found that the beebread in 17 percent of honeybee colonies exhibited acutely high levels of pesticide exposure. The study also found that 73 percent of colonies displayed chronic pesticide exposure. According to researchers, more than 60 percent of pesticides found were accounted to surrounding farmlands and orchards that were not sprayed during the blooming season.

America’s War against the People of Korea: The Historical Record of US War Crimes

An armistice is an agreement by the warring parties to stop fighting. It does signify the end of war.

What underlies the 1953 Armistice Agreement is that one of the warring parties, namely the US has consistently threatened to wage war on the DPRK for the last 60 years.

The US has on countless occasions violated the Armistice Agreement. It has remained on a war footing. Casually ignored by the Western media and the international community, the US has actively deployed nuclear weapons targeted at North Korea for more than half a century in violation of article 13b) of the Armistice agreement.

The armistice remains in force. The US is still at war with Korea. It is not a peace treaty, a peace agreement was never signed.

Women being CONNED into unnecessary double mastectomies by doctors who misrepresent genetic testing, warns Stanford researchers

The decision to undergo a double mastectomy is not one that is made lightly, but it is one that countless women have had to face over the years. The number of women undergoing the procedure has increased dramatically since 2013, when famed actress Angelina Jolie revealed that she’d had both of her breasts removed due to a mutated BRCA1 gene — which can purportedly increase the risk of breast cancer by 87 percent.

Millions of women have rushed to get testing of their own, and many have had their breasts removed as a result. But new research from Stanford University School of Medicine has shown that many of these women went under the knife for one simple reason — and it wasn’t cancer. In fact, it is supposedly because their doctors had “misunderstood” their genetic testing panels. Indeed, the scientists say that approximately half of all women who had their breasts removed didn’t need to have the surgery at all.

Russian Navy to Receive Biggest and Most Unique Nuclear Submarine in the World

The nuclear submarine Project 09852 (Belgorod) will become the largest submarine in the Russian Navy, Russian newspaper Izvestia reported. Its size will outperform the heavy nuclear-powered Typhoon missile cruiser Project 941, currently the largest nuclear submarine according to the Guinness World Records.

Project 09852 is designed to carry out research missions. It will carry uninhabited deep-sea vehicles and bathyscaphes, as well as special scientific equipment. It will be engaged in studying the bottom of the Russian Arctic shelf, searching for minerals at great depths, and also laying underwater communications.

The submarine is being developed based on the unfinished Antey-class strike missile carrier Project 949A. These boats were built in the USSR as a response to the deployment of US aircraft carrier compounds in the global ocean. Twenty “Granit” supersonic anti-ship cruise missile launchers were aboard.

The babies cry with hunger but are so severely malnourished that doctors treating them at a hospital in Iraq would make their condition worse if they fed them enough to stop the pangs.

Many of the starving infants are from Mosul, where war between Islamic State militants and Iraqi forces is taking a heavy toll on several hundred thousand civilians trapped inside the city.

A new, specialist ward was opened recently to deal with the growing number of children from Mosul showing signs of malnutrition as the conflict grinds on -– most of them less than six-months-old.

Can Cannabis Prevent and Treat Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, is a serious condition usually caused by an external blow to the head that can cause severe and often chronic symptoms. These symptoms can be cognitive, behavioral, movement related, speech and visual impairing, mood altering, involve painful headaches, and even cause gastrointestinal issues.

In a three-year retrospective review of 446 separate cases of similarly injured patients, researchers found traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients who had a history of cannabis consumption possessed increased survival rates compared to non-consumers (97.6 percent survived surgery, versus 88.5% of those who didn’t consume cannabis).

"Our data suggest an important link between the presence of a positive THC screen and improved survival after TBI," the researchers concluded. "With continued research, more information will be uncovered regarding the therapeutic potential of THC, and further therapeutic interventions may be established."

When 'Sunshine' Ruled on the Korean Peninsula

Before South Korea’s conservative presidents severed ties with North Korea from 2008, their liberal predecessors Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun promoted peaceful engagement and rapprochement, an approach called the “sunshine policy.”

The name stemmed from an ancient Greek fable where the wind and the sun competed to remove a man’s cloak. No matter how strongly the wind blew, the man only wrapped his cloak more tightly to keep warm. But when the sun shone, the warmth made him take his cloak off. The wind symbolized unsuccessful coercive policies toward North Korea and the sun stood for an approach able to persuade North Korea to take off its anachronistic and uncomfortable cloak, changing at last.

Alarming statistics reveal “young strokes” are surging across America

Strokes are occurring more frequently for adults between the ages of 35 and 44. The trend is shocking. Between 2003 and 2012, stroke hospitalizations rose 42 percent for men and 30 percent for women in this young age group. The study, published in JAMA Neurology, gathered hospital billing data and calculated the number of adults under age 65 who were hospitalized for an ischemic stroke from 2003 to 2012. An ischemic stroke occurs when the blood clots and cannot circulate to the brain.

In total, there were at least 30,000 more stroke hospitalizations in 2012 than there were in 2003. Every age group studied is suffering more than ever before. Adults aged 35 to 44 showed the greatest uptick in ischemic stroke and other chronic disease risk factors, including high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes.

Video has emerged of a Wisconsin man who said he was forced off a Milwaukee-bound Delta Air Lines flight after he used a bathroom while the plane was delayed on the tarmac.
Video posted to YouTube shows the man, later identified as Kima Hamilton of Milwaukee, as he argues with a Delta crew member who asked him to exit the plane on April 18.
Fellow passenger Krista Rosolino, who recorded the video, described the incident in an open letter published to a blog.

She said Hamilton got out of his seat to quickly use the bathroom as the plane sat on the runway.
She said he was told that he couldn't use the bathroom the first time he asked to go. After waiting 30 minutes, Hamilton said it was an emergency and went to the restroom, according to Rosolino.

When he returned to his seat, however, a Delta employee told him to exit the plane.

Organizers of the 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade in East Portland received an anonymous email urging them to bar the Multnomah County Republican Party, or “we will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag and push those people out.”

Oregon Man Fined for Talking About Traffic Lights Sues

PORTLAND, Ore. (CN) – An Oregon resident trained in engineering in Sweden says he’s developed a safer method for timing traffic lights, and the state engineering board fined him for talking about it.

Mats Jarlstrom says Oregon laws make it illegal for anyone who isn’t a licensed engineer to criticize the state’s methods for timing traffic lights. Jarlstrom calls that an unconstitutional prohibition on free speech.

On April 25, Jarlstrom filed a new federal lawsuit. This time, he says the board not only regulates professional engineers, it also “restricts and punishes ordinary people for their most basic acts of civic engagement and political speech.”

Curcumin Tempers Arsenic Toxicity Through DNA Repair

Curcumin, the active ingredient in the spice turmeric is effective against the harmful impact of arsenic according to a recent study reported in the Journal of Clinical Biochemistry and Nutrition. Arsenic is a poison that can be fatal to humans.

The study investigated whether curcumin could counteract the DNA damage caused by arsenic using peripheral blood lymphocytes from healthy donors. Researchers found that DNA damage could be effectively reduced by curcumin, and the effect was more pronounced when lymphocytes were preincubated with curcumin prior to the arsenic insult.

Arsenic causes DNA damage by generating reactive oxygen species and enhancement of lipid peroxidation levels. Curcumin counteracted the damage by quenching the reactive oxygen species, decreasing the level of lipid peroxidation, and increasing the levels of phase II detoxification enzymes like catalase, superoxide dismutase (SOD), and glutathione peroxidase.

Charles Richet "In 1913, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his researches on anaphylaxis. He invented this word to designate the sensitivity developed by an organism after it had been given a parenteral injection of a colloid or protein substance or a toxin (1902). Later he demonstrated the facts of passive anaphylaxis and anaphylaxis in vitro. The applications of anaphylaxis to medicine are extremely numerous. "

BLOOD-THINNING DRUG XARELTO FACES 18,000 LAWSUITS

The first court test of Bayer/J&J’s billion-dollar bonanza, blood-thinner, Xarelto, is coming up in New Orleans next week. The outcome will influence how the 18,000 lawsuits behind it will be handled.

The plaintiff in the first suit is Joseph Boudreaux. “While Xarelto was supposed to help cut his stroke risk, Boudreaux says it instead caused internal bleeding that required a week-long hospital stay in the intensive-care unit, several blood transfusions and multiple heart procedures. ‘I don’t want anybody else to suffer like I have from that drug,’ the part-time security guard says,” reports the Chicago Tribune.

Lawyers for Bayer and J&J will argue, in the main, that Xarelto was approved by the FDA as safe and effective.

This is the normal front-line strategy in cases where the drugmaker believes it can’t be accused of purposely concealing a medicine’s dangers from the FDA.
