Flu shots and aborting your baby…

The public may never know just how dangerous flu shots are nor how ineffective they proved to be. This is because large corporate interests control the mainstream media news desks. Don’t believe me? What do you think would happen if some legitimate study were published in a reputable journal that implicated vitamin C taken during pregnancy causing a 700% increase risk of miscarriage? It would be the lead story on everything from ABC news to 60 minutes.  There would be such an uproar that vitamin C would be removed from most every health-food store, pharmacy, and even grocery store until proper warnings were issued and a label approved by the FDA. But flu shots?  Nah….. »

Denying care with a touch of ignorance….

Imagine being able to take a simple oral swab and analyze a set of genes that would allow incredibly more accurate prescribing for drugs that affect paAmbienin and the brain. A number of new (for profit) companies are offering just that type of information that promises to take a lot of the guesswork out of prescribing antidepressants, pain meds, soporifics (sleep meds), and others. This type of testing is easy now with results available in 3-4 days.

In Iowa Lyme disease only lasts a few weeks…

Inquisition

…a position which is now so out of touch with reality so as to be “anti-Copernican” in its ignorance.  Recently, an 18 YO girl who had been treated by an Iowa physician for Lyme disease with antibiotics, improved, significantly with this treatment, but now can no longer treat that condition in Iowa.  You read that right… »

Smart data for whose benefit?

Illumina

 

Dave Racer

 

We are witnessing the transformation of Big Data to “Smart” Data. Will this benefit you or bind you down?  Are you comfortable with data analytics that can peruse your unique medical indicators and predict what ailments await you in the future? Would you agree to abide by medical managers prescribing – or requiring – you to live a certain way to reduce your chance of chronic illness or early death? What would you do if today’s mail included advertisements promoting a cancer treatment center near you, even though your doctor has never mentioned the “C word” to you?… »

ObamaCare…sounding the death rattle

ObamaCare signing

It goes without saying that the cataclysmic legislation that very few of our intellectually challenged Congresspeople read — I hope this reminds everyone of Al Franken and Nancy Pelosi — is very likely going to die under the weight of its ill conceived business plan. Aetna is now pulling out, and the reasons are not subtle: $300 M in losses this past year….

The great unknowns about Mary Jane….

I am330px-Cannabis_sativa_plant_(4) often asked about the true medical value in marijuana.  There are, of course, many who feel it is a curse — an entry level portal to the dark world of drug abuse.  In many cases they are correct.  There is plenty of data to suggest that cannabis provides a cheap and convenient (and enjoyable) apprenticeship to the use of heroine and many other substances that have a consistent if not guaranteed tendency to make unproductive citizens of good people.  Not to mention that the trade in this substance has been controlled by elements who tend to kill anyone who tries to take over any good sales contracts.  But the Gateway theory has some flaws, and the predictability of harder drug use by recreational marijuana users is a little more complicated.  And the actual science of cannabis is very compelling when used properly… »

Senate voted 65 to 32 against your right to know what’s in your food

Are we going to continue to allow our personal liberties to be stripped from us even as industries that are in bed with our government continue to gross huge profits at the expense of our health?  For a nation founded on liberty and considering the sacrifice made by many throughout our history to preserve these liberties, I am appalled.

In case you missed this new’s piece earlier this month, the Senate voted 65 to 32 against the right to know what is in your food. When is transparency ever a bad thing when it has to do with understanding what is in the food you eat, the water you drink, or perhaps the drugs you may take?

This particular piece of legislation is regarding GMO labeling. If GMO foods are so wonderful, why not let an educated public choose whether or not to eat these glorious Frankenstein creations? Speaking of Frankenstein, our very own Al Franken from Minnesota voted in Monsanto’s favor and against your right to understand what you are putting on your dinner table. Please let Al Franken know that you don’t want your child eating frankenfoods!

The Vaccine Tragedy…hiding in plain sight…

This will likely be a polarizing movie for those who manufacture and sell vaccines (insert numerous drug conglomerates), distribute them (pediatricians and insurers), and who argue for their efficacy (many ignorant citizens and MDs who have been drinking the Kool Aid).  But the connection between vaccines and autism continues to be debated due to the compelling nature of just too many cases where it appears obvious.  »
