UNICEF Vaccinates African Refugee Children with Combination OPV/IPV Vaccines as Part of Vaccination Experiment

By Christina England, BA Hons

In 2014, a report published by UNICEF revealed that, due to an outbreak of polio in Kenya, the charity had decided it was time to step up their efforts to contain the disease. According to their reports, the most effective way to increase the children’s immunity was to vaccinate them with a combination of both the oral (OPV) and the injectable polio vaccine (IPV) simultaneously...

Solar Filter Safety

A total eclipse of the Sun is probably the most spectacular astronomical event that people can experience. Every year there are at least two solar eclipses of one kind or another (and sometimes as many as five) visible from different parts of the world.

In the days and weeks before an eclipse occurs, news stories in the media provide information on what will happen and how to watch the event safely. Unfortunately, despite the best intentions, inaccurate or confusing information on safe observing techniques is often provided. This is especially true when the recommendations concern protective filters for directly observing the Sun. (Here is a list of solar filter suppliers.)

Iceland Could Be About To Experience A Major Volcanic Eruption

Iceland’s largest volcano, Katla, was just moved to yellow status. But that isn’t all that’s concerning. There have also been over 500 earthquakes in Iceland in the last four days.

Experts now believe that a volcanic eruption that could be quite large, may soon occur in Iceland. A series of 40 small earthquakes occurred just North East of Mount Fagradalsfjall two days ago, with the final one felt in Reykjavik, measuring at almost 4 on the Richter scale. Following tremors at Katla in South Iceland and a glacial river flood in Múlakvísl, the Icelandic Met Office has raised the status of the famous volcano on its “Aviation Colour Code Map for Icelandic Volcanic Systems” from green to yellow. People have even been warned to stay away from the Múlakvísl River because of the odor of sulfur.

Minnesota Residents to Get First Glimpse at Insurance Rates Monday

Minnesota residents who buy health insurance on their own will soon get their first glimpse at rates for next year.

The rates set to be released Monday are still preliminary as insurers and state regulators work to finalize premiums for 2018. Monday's release will also answer whether any companies plan to drop out of the individual marketplace as Blue Cross Blue Shield did last year.

REVEALED: Flint's deadly water crisis which claimed 10 lives was caused by lead pipes with holes like SWISS CHEESE

Researchers have discovered how lead from water pipe lines in Flint, Michigan leached into water supply, contaminating the city's water supply with lead.

A study of the pipe lines revealed a Swiss cheese pattern in the pipes' interior crust, with holes where the lead used to be.

The findings support the accepted understanding that lead leached into the water system because the water wasn't treated to prevent corrosion.

The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan, is the first to prevent direct evidence of this leaching mechanism, the researchers claim.

‘Let’s CUT THEM OFF From SPACE': HOW Russia Could Strike Back at US Sanctions

There are several scenarios of how Russia could deliver a more substantial response if the new sanctions bill is adopted in the US, according to Nikolai Platoshkin, head of the International Relations Department at the Moscow University for the Humanities.

“The text of the bill itself contains a tip. It’s in section 237 which reads that the measures included in this act should not impede the activities of NASA [National Aeronautics and Space Administration]. So, let’s cut them off from space. Russia may stop transporting American astronauts to the ISS [International Space Station]. May they take a horse,” Platoshkin said at a roundtable in Moscow.

How Do US Vaccine Rates, Policies And Children’s Health Compare To Other Countries?

The United States has higher vaccination rates than any other country. The US also has very high infant mortality rates. American children experience epidemic levels of chronic diseases including autism, attention deficit disorder, learning disabilities, autoimmune disorders, asthma, epilepsy and allergies. [1, 2]

If vaccinations were so effective in improving the health of children, why do the statistics not bear this out? In fact, the opposite has been shown to be true. Increasing vaccination rates are correlated with growth in diseases for our children.

Low energy LED lightbulbs could be giving us all HEADACHES because they flicker too much, expert warns

Professor Arnold Wilkins, professor of psychology at the University of Essex, said the flickering of the unpopular lights is stronger than for traditional lightbulbs.

While fluorescent lights, such as those in offices, dim by around 35 per cent with every flicker, LED lights dim by 100 per cent. It means they effectively turn off and on again hundreds of times every second.

This can cause headaches by disrupting movement control of the eyes, forcing the brain to work harder. Flickering LED bulbs could double the chances of suffering a headache, based on previous research.

WATCH: Congressman Asks a Question About Weed and Accidentally Exposes Tyrannical Drug War

I like this guy. No accident about it!

Harold Watson “Trey” Gowdy III is a member of the Tea Party movement and the Republican Party and serves as a congressman from South Carolina. He is also the chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. During the meeting with the ONDCP this week, Gowdy asked why marijuana was a schedule I drug.

While Gowdy didn’t go so far as to call for the legalization of cannabis — because it would likely mean political suicide among his staunchly conservative base — his line of questioning set off a conversation that would eventually expose the war on drugs.

Tramadol: Fears over painkiller ‘as addictive as heroin’

A LEADING pathologist has called for prescription painkiller Tramadol to be made a class A drug after an inquest last week found a mother-of-six had died from an overdose.

Emma May, 34, battled with addiction to the pills before her death in June last year.

Professor Jack Crane, the Northern Ireland former state pathologist and a leading expert in forensic medicine, said the case served as “yet another reminder” of the dangers of Tramadol.

“People seem to assume that Tramadol is safe because it is prescribed by doctors but in my mind it is just as dangerous as heroin and should be reclassified as a class A drug,” he said.

Solar battery packs may have to be stored outside under proposed new rules

A new proposed battery safety standard would stop the installation of solar power systems' battery packs, which have been described as the "future of energy".

Consultation is open on the standard, which would ban lithium ion batteries inside a dwelling, under the eaves of a house or within a metre of it. Installed beyond that distance, the batteries would have to be in a fireproof enclosure.

Companies such as Vector are promoting battery packs, such as Tesla's Powerwall, as part of solar energy systems.

Far-Left militia group claiming 30-plus branches nationwide training for CIVIL WAR with conservatives, Trump supporters

It’s beginning to look a lot like the 1990s again when Bill Clinton’s famous liberalism and fears of government take-overs followed by gun bans inspired the creation of right-leaning militia organizations willing to stand and fight against imagined tyranny.

Only, this time around it’s the far Left that is doing the preparing.

A web-based group that keeps an eye on Left-wing militancy is reporting that one movement claiming at least 30 branches nationwide are preparing members to wage civil war against conservatives and Trump supporters.They promote several PDFs that endorse “armed struggle” and even offer a 36 page “Mini-Manual Of The Urban Guerrilla” which pictures left-wing militants using RPGs and outlines tactics for guerrilla warfare including sections on “sabotage,” “kidnapping,” “executions,” “armed propaganda,” and “terrorism.”

This all sounds like typical Leninist/Marxist ‘revolutionary’ claptrap. But these fools believe it.

Top 5 associations and organizations that invest in the destruction of the health of Americans

There is much more money to be made by making people sick and treating that sickness with useless chemical medicines than there is to be made by healing people, and that is definitely unfortunate. Since before World War II, many associations, administrations, agencies and corporations have plotted and planned the total debasement of American food and medicine as an insidious means of getting rich and staying rich, and it worked. Still, most Americans believe these agencies and “non-profit” organizations would never be so evil and insidious. These folks are often called “sheeple” because they follow the herd of blind “animals” over the health cliff by taking “directions” from all the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Britain’s Socialized Healthcare Now Recommends Against Herbal Treatments

Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) is a shining example of everything socialized medicine has to offer.

The NHS prevents parents from seeking experimental treatments for terminally ill children.

The government can deem patients close to death, and remove feeding tubes to starve them to death. This was once called the Liverpool Care Pathway, which has since been renamed, but not changed.

The NHS will even cut patients off from all government care if they catch them paying for their own care elsewhere, or using natural healing methods.

Recently the NHS decided obese patients and smokers are not eligible for hip and knee replacements.

And now, the NHS is recommending doctors no longer prescribe herbal and homeopathic treatments to patients.

“I felt really upset about selling the marital home,” said Katinka. “I felt very guilty. It was then that I had sleepless nights.

“I went to a private psychiatrist who gave me an antidepressant.”

“I was looking for a sleeping tablet. I was already in a bit of a state by the time I went to see her. It happened very quickly. I am one of those people who have a severe reaction to the pills.”

Katinka said the pills gave her an ‘inner anguish’ and put her in a trance like state.

“I lost the powers of speech,” she said. “I was in a real state, almost in a trance. Two days later I was acutely psychotic.

“Suddenly I thought nothing mattered.”

Katinka told Ruth and Eamonn that her state got so bad she thought she had killed her children and even attacked herself with a knife.

CANCER-CAUSING POLLUTANTS DETECTED IN MOST TAP WATER ACROSS US - STUDY

Tap water from 48,000 public water utilities was found to contain multiple cancer-causing agents from arsenic, dioxane, chromium 6 to nitrates, according to researcher with the Environmental Working Group.

Researchers published the findings of their five year study in an online database, searchable by zip code or a local utility’s name, with findings on tap water in public water systems in all 50 states.

A search under the New York City zip code 10017 and found tap water contaminated with over 10 cancer causing chemical including Bromodichloromethane, chloroform, chromium, dichloroacetic acid, dioxane and strontium, among others.

The chemicals can come from agricultural runoff, industry, treatment byproducts, or be naturally occurring.

Canaanites Live: DNA Reveals Fate of Biblical People

The people of modern-day Lebanon can trace their genetic ancestry back to the Canaanites, new research finds.

The Canaanites were residents of the Levant (modern-day Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel and Palestine) during the Bronze Age, starting about 4,000 years ago. They're best known from the Old Testament of the Bible, in which they're described as the cursed descendants of Canaan, blighted by God because Canaan's father dishonored his own father, the patriarch Noah. The Canaanites were often in conflict with the Israelite tribes that wrote the Hebrew Bible. In fact, the Book of Deuteronomy features Yahweh (God) ordering the Canaanites to be exterminated.

Top 6 BOGUS “science-based-medicine” claims founded on faulty research

(Natural News) Science! Scientists, geologists, agriculturalists, climatologists, astronomers, historians, archeologists, biologists, oncologists and geoscientists are so proud to exclaim that their field of study has research and facts to back up their favorite conversations about climate change, GMOs, vaccines, chemotherapy and infectious disease, but what if they all found out today that the majority of their favorite “evidence-based” data was crafted, scripted, manipulated, twisted and distorted to fit an insidious narrative?

Secretive Saturn: New Cassini Data Upends Existing Theories About Planet

Planets also have a rotational axis — an invisible line on which the planet's orbit hinges. For Earth, that axis runs from the North Pole to the South Pole, but since the poles move around some, Earth's axis has a slight "tilt" to it, a wobbling which helps move things throughout the planet's interior. This is a good thing, as it prevents the molten iron from settling within Earth, which would eventually strip us of our homeworld's magnetic field and atmosphere.

But Saturn's tilt and its rotational axis are almost identical, according to Cassini's new data. Scientists had previously estimated that Saturn's tilt was no less than 0.06 degrees, but they found the tilt level to be much lower than that. Which then raises a major question: why does Saturn still have an atmosphere and a magnetic field?

And this is by no means an isolated incident. The website PharmaDeathClock.com, which keeps track of the number of victims killed by “Big Pharma’s chemical warfare on humanity” since the year 2000, shows that over 703,000 people have been killed by SSRIs during that time period.

Now Mitalipov is believed to have broken new ground both in the number of embryos experimented upon and by demonstrating that it is possible to safely and efficiently correct defective genes that cause inherited diseases.

Although none of the embryos were allowed to develop for more than a few days—and there was never any intention of implanting them into a womb—the experiments are a milestone on what may prove to be an inevitable journey toward the birth of the first genetically modified humans.

Antidepressants linked to murders and murderous thoughts

Antidepressants have been linked to 28 reports of murder and 32 cases of murderous thoughts, in cases referred to the UK medicines regulator over the past 30 years, a BBC investigation has discovered.

The pills, known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) which includes common drugs like Prozac and Seroxat, are prescribed 40 million times each year in Britain.

But an Freedom of Information request for BBC Panorama discovered that the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency had received 60 reports of murders or murderous thoughts linked to the drugs in the past three decades.

Professor Peter Tyrer, a psychiatrist at Imperial College London, has been assessing the performance of SSRIs since they were first introduced in the 1980s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How in the name of heaven can the statement be made:

"Although the link between murders and antidepressants in cases referred to the MHRA do not mean the drugs caused the events..."?!?

There is obviously a causal relationship between these drugs and what happened to the people who exhibited this behaviour, period, end of discussion.

Of course, the pharmaceutical houses growing fat off the prescriptions of these drugs (and many times, doctors who write these prescriptions get compensated by the drug manufacturers as well) don't want the general public knowing about these horrific side effects; but they need to.

And if you want a resource for a dossier on the negative effects which happened to people on SSRIS, you need go no further than that following website:

How herbs helped a man combat cancer

Joseph Shiroky, 80, from Russia’s city of Kotlas in the Arkhangelsk Region was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 1992. After refusing to go through medical treatment Shiroky secretly ordered a tombstone and a fence for his future grave. After that he started to seriously study the power of herbs and made several potions using recipes that he learned from the elders in his region. Even though there are no confirmed cases of phytotherapy curing oncological diseases, Shiroky still decided to give it a try. A year later, the cancer retreated. “I did not become an absolutely healthy person, but the illness is not controlling me and does not impede my ability to live life to the fullest,” he says. Shiroky takes care of his household, writes books, goes on long hikes in search of herbs, gives free consultations to the public, and helps everyone who seeks his advice. “A potion can combat any sickness. It only needs to be properly collected, prepared and used,” an old Russian saying goes.

Thousands of acres of Crown forest lands are sprayed every year with herbicides to kill hardwoods and plants that compete with softwood plantation seedlings.

Rosemary Protects Against Radiation!

By Neenah Payne

We are being exposed to ever higher levels of radiation from technology. Dr. Axe points out in Electromagnetic Radiation: Are EMFs Really a Risk?: “A basic point to remember is that EMFs come from all sorts of things, including your microwave, cell phone, cordless telephones, smart meters, TV and radio broadcasts, computers, power lines, fitness tracking devices, routers, and, of course, ultraviolet waves, x-rays, and gamma rays. We are practically bathed in EMFs at all times.” ...

Ketamine has 'remarkable' effect on depression, leading researchers claim

Leading researchers have claimed that Ketamine can have a ‘truly remarkable’ effect on people with depression, after a new extensive study showed positive results among elderly patients.

Colleen Loo, a professor at the University of New South Wales in Australia, led the world’s first ever randomised control trial into the effect of the drug on people over 60 living with treatment-resistant depression.

Of the 16 people participating in the study, 11 reported a marked improvement in their condition while they were treated with the drug – while 43 percent of the subjects said they had no significant symptoms of depression after being treated with ketamine for six months.

Humanity at risk as sperm levels among Western men plummet to record low

Chemicals, diet, stress, and lifestyle choices have caused the sperm levels of Western men to plummet to less than 50 percent of what they were four decades ago, a new study has found.

The research found that sperm in the ejaculate of men from Europe, North America, Australia, and New Zealand fell by 1.4 percent every year between 1973 2011, leading to an overall drop of just over 52 percent.

“The results are quite shocking,” said study co-author Hagai Levine, an epidemiologist from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, according to Reuters. He called the results an "urgent wake-up call."

Doctors are prescribing DEADLY fentanyl for cash and lavish dinners, reveals report

An opioid that is 50 times stronger than pure heroin (and 100 times more potent than morphine) is being over-prescribed by physicians nationwide as the delineation between medical ethics and personal gain fades even further. Fentanyl, a powerful prescription pain medication, is an entirely synthetic opioid initially meant to ease cancer patients to death. Even with its intended purpose, health regulation groups repeatedly warn of the drug’s deadly side effects and caution doctors to only prescribe it as a last resort. That being said, recent data reveals that more doctors are prescribing fentanyl to their patients, even for cases such as tonsillitis.

An explosive report on NJ.com showed that the number of fentanyl dispensed in the state since late 2011 is enough to allow every person who has died of cancer in New Jersey to fill a prescription for the drug eight times.

Since the 2012 launch of the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing tool, the possibility of altering the genetic makeup of living organisms has become far more accessible.

The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) created the Safe Genes program in order to understand how these gene editing technologies work, and address potential health and security concerns related to their accidental or international misuse.

DARPA recently announced awards for seven teams that will pursue this mission, which could have applications as far ranging as the protection of troops against infectious disease, defending native wildlife against invasive species, and controlling populations of disease-spreading mosquitoes.

70 TOP-PAID US HEALTH INDUSTRY CEOS RAKED IN $9.8B SINCE OBAMACARE PASSED

You know all those health industry lobbyists who say that the American healthcare industry will go broke if it has to take care of the health of Americans?

Every year since 2011 -- when ACA became law -- the CEOs of US health companies have averaged an 11% raise. Remember, that's 11 percent, every year.

Topping the list is John Martin who helmed Gilead Sciences to the tune of $863M since Obamacare's passage.

American health care is indeed dangerous and unstably expensive, and to fix that, America's health CEOs should be focusing on lower prices, eliminating unnecessary expenses, and coordinating care. Instead, America's health care industry is booming at the expense of American health, thanks to a focus on selling more drugs, performing more procedures and tests, raising prices and engaging in gimmicky stock-inflating tactics.

* Pharmaceutical and drug-related company CEOs made up 11 of the top 20 highest earners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, now you know: ACA was NEVER about the true health of Americans; it was all about Big Pharma and Big Healthcare raking in billions for their CEOS!!

Cassini 'sniffs' the atmosphere of Saturn's atmosphere and rings for the first time as it prepares to crash into the planet's surface

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft is now 15 weeks into its ‘grand finale’ dives, dipping in and out of the narrow gap between Saturn and its rings – but, as it comes closer to the planet than ever before, Cassini is making ‘surprising’ observations that could incite more questions than answers.

According to NASA, the new observations have revealed that Saturn’s magnetic field has no detectable tilt, meaning the true length of a Saturn day remains a mystery.

Cassini has also been at work ‘sniffing out’ Saturn’s exosphere – or, the outermost atmosphere.

Taking antidepressants during pregnancy almost DOUBLES the risk of mental retardation in children

The makers of antidepressants could be trying to rein in any suggestions that the drugs cause harm during pregnancy because they also have a very useful side effect as far as they’re concerned: they’re creating the next generation of customers in the womb. A Finnish study found that the offspring of mothers who took antidepressants during pregnancy had a threefold rise in the incidence of depression when compared to those offspring whose mothers stopped using antidepressants before pregnancy and a fourfold increase compared to those with mothers who had a psychiatric diagnosis but never took antidepressants. This particular effect is awfully convenient for pharmaceutical companies, to say the least.

Statin drugs exposed as a MEDICAL SHAM as new research finds “no evidence” of improved survival

Dr. Esther van Zuuren, a senior researcher from Leiden University, said: “It’s time we look at the evidence and stop letting the pharmaceutical companies and food industry pull the wool over our eyes.”

The paper even went so far as to say that quitting statins could actually save more lives and improve the quality of life for people who take them, pointing out that statins cause side effects in 29 percent of users and only offer “the illusion of cardiovascular protection” in those who are obese.

Not only do these drugs not help those who have had a heart attack, but they also fail to provide benefits when used as a preventive measure.

VATICAN IN AWE: 1500 YEAR OLD BIBLE CONFIRMS THAT JESUS CHRIST WAS NOT CRUCIFIED

Much to the dismay of the Vatican, an approx. 1500-2000 year old bible was found in Turkey, in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara. Discovered and kept secret in the year 2000, the book contains the Gospel of Barnabas – a disciple of Christ – which shows that Jesus was not crucified, nor was he the son of God, but a Prophet. The book also calls Apostle Paul “The Impostor”. The book also claims that Jesus ascended to heaven alive, and that Judas Iscariot was crucified in his place.

A report by The National Turk says that the Bible was seized from a gang of smugglers in a Mediterranean-area operation. The report states the gang was charged with smuggling antiquities, illegal excavations, and the possession of explosives. The books itself is valued as high as 40 Million Turkish Liras (approx. 28 mil. Dollars).

Don't believe the American Heart Assn. — butter, steak and coconut oil aren't likely to kill you

Last month, the American Heart Association once again went after butter, steak and especially coconut oil with this familiar warning: The saturated fats in these foods cause heart disease. The organization’s “presidential advisory” was a fresh look at the science and came in response to a growing number of researchers, including myself, who have poured over this same data in recent years and beg to differ. A rigorous review of the evidence shows that when it comes to heart attacks or mortality, saturated fats are not guilty.

To me, the AHA advisory released in June was mystifying. How could its scientists examine the same studies as I had, yet double down on an anti-saturated fat position? With a cardiologist, I went through the nuts and bolts of the AHA paper, and came to this conclusion: It was likely driven less by sound science than by longstanding bias, commercial interests and the AHA’s need to reaffirm nearly 70 years of its “heart healthy” advice.

Trump's DOJ gears up for crackdown on marijuana

The Trump administration is readying for a crackdown on marijuana users under Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

President Trump’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety, led by Sessions, is expected to release a report next week that criminal justice reform advocates fear will link marijuana to violent crime and recommend tougher sentences for those caught growing, selling and smoking the plant.

Sessions sent a memo in April updating the U.S. Attorney’s Offices and Department of Justice Department (DOJ) component heads on the work of the task force, which he said would be accomplished through various subcommittees. In the memo, Sessions said he has asked for initial recommendations no later than July 27.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has Jeff Sessions absolutely gone foaming at the mouth, barking-dog mad, to attempt to link marijuana with violent crime?!?

This is both insanity and absurdity, all wrapped up with absolute, complete stupidity, and pig-ignorance of the science surrounding the use marijuana.

Any scientific study of the use of marijuana as a tranquilizer, and to ease pain, will show the polar opposite to this attempted link to violent crime.

One has to wonder what a forensic accounting review of Mr. Session's stock portfolio would reveal about his holdings in alcohol companies, pharmaceutical companies, and private prison corporations.

Ramses II was King Solomon

Very few equivalences in ancient times are so certain as the equivalence of Ramses II with King Solomon. Indeed, no mainstream scholar has been able to present even the most minimal requisite evidence necessary to rebut my challenge to current chronology as posted at https://listhost.uchicago.edu/pipermail/ane/2003-July/009941.html

Egyptologists, Oriental and Biblical scholars do not like to be confronted with facts - rather, they continue to build their nice little houses of cards as if facts contrary to their ill-conceived theories and chronologies simply did not exist. The closed-minded majority of Egyptologists seem to have a limited capacity for critical thinking.

Just how long did Ramses reign? They assume it is 67 years of sole regency, but the evidence is against them.

It is quite clear that Ramses did not rule alone for 67 years but like Solomon only ruled 40 years as a sole regent.

Yellowstone supervolcano ready to blow? Rational analysis says it’s unlikely in your lifetime

There has been a lot of concern about the Yellowstone supervolcano over the past few weeks due to the nearly 1,000 small earthquakes recently detected in the region.

It is true that if the Yellowstone caldera blows, it would blanket much of North America with up to three feet of ash, devastating the ecosystem, collapsing the food supply and leading to mass famine. However, with Yellowstone erupting only once every 600,000 years or so, is it really rational to focus preparedness efforts on something that’s highly unlikely to happen in your lifetime?

Acute antipsychotic-induced akathisia revisited

Akathisia was initially observed in patients with basal ganglia disorders, primarily Parkinson’s disease. Introduction of first-generation antipsychotic (FGA) agents drew attention to anti-psychotic-induced akathisia as it appeared to be one of the most frequent and distressing drug-induced movement disorders, occurring in around one in four FGA-treated patients. It is characterised by restless movements and a subjective sense of inner restlessness coupled with distress, and develops predominantly in patients treated with high-potency FGAs, at high doses and during rapid dose escalation. The identification of akathisia in a meaningful proportion of patients treated with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and its association with suicidal behaviour highlights its clinical significance.

Jul 21 15:25

What Is Akathisia?

Between 20 and 45% of people who take antipsychotic medications experience akathisia. The Barnes Akathisia-Rating Scale is used to diagnose the condition. If you suffer from akathisia, you may have restless movements of the arms and legs such as tapping, marching in place, rocking, crossing and uncrossing the legs. This is sometimes referred to as psychomotor agitation.

Your body may feel anxious at the thought of sitting down. Your body will always want to be on the move, almost to the point of fidgeting whenever stillness sets in.

There are four types of movement disorders associated with antipsychotic drugs. Sometimes akathisia can be grouped with these other movement disorders, or it may be isolated to only one:

  • Tardive dyskinesia (TD)
  • Parkinsonism
  • Akathisia, which we cover here
  • Tardive dystonia

    Akathisia is generally underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

    Landmark Study Shows Legal Marijuana Sales Reduce Crime

    “I reject the idea that America will be a better place if marijuana is sold in every corner store. And I am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana—so people can trade one life-wrecking dependency for another that’s only slightly less awful,” President Donald Trump’s darling Attorney General, Jeff Sessions said earlier this year. “Our nation needs to say clearly once again that using drugs will destroy your life.”

    While any sane person with half a brain can easily see how ignorant and outright irresponsible Sessions’ comments are, a new study on marijuana shops shows just how asinine this man’s policy actually is.

    Chemotherapy obsolete? “Ceramide nanoliposome” uses liposomal delivery to target and kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells

    Ceramide has previously been shown to possess strong anti-cancer properties. Its delicate structure, however, has stopped other researchers from using it in clinical tests to treat cancer. The Penn researchers used nanotechnology to coat ceramide in a fatty lipid layer to improve its stability in the body. This new and improved compound targets tumor cells, penetrates the cellular lining, and deposes its chemotherapeutic cargo in the cancer cell.

    “Ceramide is a bioactive lipid that selectively kills cancer cells. At equal dosing, normal cells go to sleep, cancer cells die,” explained Kester. “The problem is it precipitates. It falls out of solution. The only way to deliver it is to turn it into a nanoformulation, which is our intellectual property. Think of it as a very small FedEx truck that delivers on time, all the time but only to the cancer cells.”

    Doctor Busted Running A Drug Ring That Would Make Walter White Jealous

    Authorities arrested a doctor who allegedly flooded the streets of New Jersey with high dosage painkillers in a scheme potentially worth up to $7 million.

    State Attorney General Christopher Porrino announced the bust at a press conference Wednesday in Newark, which included the arrest of 16 alleged leaders of the illicit operation. Dr. Craig Gialanella, a 53-year old internist with a practice in Belleville, N.J., is charged with running the drug ring, which distributed roughly 50,000 oxycodone 30-milligram pills between Jan. 1 and Dec. 7, 2017, reports Fox News.

    Gialanella wrote prescriptions in the names of roughly 30 people living in Atlantic County, including the 16 members charged in connection to the scheme, which they would pay for with cash. The members than sold the pills on the streets, feeding opioid addiction in the state. Gialanella is believed to have written scripts for more than 350,000 oxycodone pills in total worth up to $7 million if sold on the street.

    On Aug. 21, 2017, people across the United States will see the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight, causing the temperature drop rapidly and revealing massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon. On that day, America will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse .

    The so-called Great American Total Solar Eclipse will darken skies all the way from Oregon to South Carolina, along a stretch of land about 70 miles (113 kilometers) wide. People who descend upon this "path of totality" for the big event are in for an unforgettable experience.

    Here is Space.com's complete guide to the 2017 total solar eclipse. It includes information about where and when to see it, how long it lasts, what you can expect to see, and how to plan ahead to ensure you get the most out of this incredible experience.

    VIKING, LIFE ON MARS, AND DR. GILBERT LEVIN

    I wrote this article in response to a news report that appeared the other day in the UK Independent. There just might be life on Mars....Nasa Curiosity rover picks up mysterious methane 'burps' that could possibly be coming from alien organisms

    The gist of the story is that Curiosity has been detecting sudden bursts of methane erupting from small areas on the surface of Mars. These methane bursts are not explainable by geological processes, which tend to result in methane flowing steadily from large areas. But colonies of bacteria just under the surface would generate methane, which would accumulate until there was enough pressure for a "burp" to pop up through the overhead dust. Curiosity is going to perform more tests to try to confirm biological activity, and when they do, we can count on the present day NASA management to claim credit for what will truly be an Earth-shaking discovery.

    Eclipse to cause 'biggest traffic event in Oregon history'

    ODOT is staffing up and warning drivers to be prepared to be stuck in their cars for hours during the solar eclipse.

    Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman Don Hamilton says the eclipse will cause "the biggest traffic event in Oregon history" on August 21.

    State emergency management officials are estimating one million people from out of state are coming to Oregon to watch the eclipse. More rental cars and RVs will be added to our highways, not to mention rural single-lane roads to and from campsites.

    ODOT is particularly worried about the highways to the Oregon Coast. The agency is halting any maintenance and construction in the days leading up to the eclipse just to keep roads clear. They will be closing truck weigh stations so ambulances, police or fire trucks can have room to park there in case of emergency. ODOT is even warning trucking companies of delayed deliveries until things calm down.

    High-dose vitamin D found to HEAL sunburns by activating skin repair genes… so why won’t dermatologists recommend vitamin D?

    In a new trial out of Case Western Reserve University that is the first of its kind, 20 participants were given a sunburn on their inner arm using a UV lamp and were then administered either a placebo pill or one containing vitamin D in dosages that ranged from 50,000 to 200,000 international units (IU).

    The researchers then followed up with the participants 24, 48, and 72 hours after the experiment, as well as one week later, to collect skin biopsies and conduct further testing. The researchers found that Vitamin D was able to significantly reduce the skin redness and swelling that are hallmarks of sunburn, and even more surprisingly, it also activated skin repair genes that promote healing. Among those participants in the study who took a Vitamin D supplement an hour after getting burned, their level of healing was correlated to their dosage of Vitamin D.
