    12/16/2018 8:28:27 AM PST · by rktman · 61 replies ^ | 12/15/2018 | Brad Wilmouth
    Saturday's Today show on NBC spent almost two minutes highlighting an obituary for a suicide victim in Vermont that is part of an effort to encourage new laws that would require a 24-hour waiting period before purchasing a gun ..... Co-host Sheinelle Jones set up the segment by recalling that the CDC recently reported that the number of gun-related deaths per year is at the highest level in about 40 years. Co-host Peter Alexander then added: "This morning, an obituary for a young man who took his own life is going viral, his parents now calling for stricter gun control...
  • FDA issues worldwide recall of common blood pressure medication

    A large medication recall has expanded again - now to a global scale. Valsartan, a prescription medication commonly used to treat blood pressure issues and heart failure, is now under a worldwide recall. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the drug contains a cancer causing chemical called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). This chemical is toxic to the liver and other organs. "The presence of NDMA was unexpected and is thought to be related to changes in the way the active substance was manufactured," the FDA said. snip...
  • Mother’s Little Helper Has Become America’s Big Problem

    Is tonight’s dinner giving you heartburn? You’re in luck; there is a pill for that. Do you have high blood pressure? There’s a pill for that, too. How about going bald? Restless legs? Help in bed? Thinning eye lashes? Yes, yes, yes, and…yes – all maladies solved with the help of prescription drugs. In modern medicine today, there seems to be nothing that cannot be cured with prescription or over-the-counter remedies. Simply turn on television during a big game or an evening news program, and you’ll catch the latest drug ad from Astrazeneca, Merck, or Pfizer, hawking a treatment for...

    Why is this common thread being hidden by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media? As I contemplate the horror in Las Vegas I wonder; is it only tragedy that unites us. Or is it a tragedy that we are divided? I also wonder why an important common thread always seems to be missing from every story examining the reasons for these evil acts? What is that common thread? Is it a political affiliation? Is it a nationality? Is it a certain type of weapon? No. None of these is the common thread.
  • Are fruit and veggie pills really as effective for your health as they claim?

    It’s been a bad season for veracity (witness our recent political campaigns!): Unfounded claims abound. Product pitches assault us with no tether to reality. Science is misappropriated for commercial gain.One example of such things: fruit and veggie pills that claim they can take the place of the whole foods you’re not including enough of in your diet.Don’t get me wrong: I think there’s value in certain plant-derived nutrient supplements. Before it sounds like I’m dismissing an entire group of products, you should know that there are a few categories where these substitutes for fresh produce can have benefits.For instance, there...

    he only hope is to arm our children with backbone and teach them about self-discipline, responsibility and holistic medicine I recently wrote that our ancestors endured great hardship when they landed in America. They hacked down forests and tried to survive in the new land. Now, they would roll over in their graves if they knew North Americans had become a nation of wimps. Readers of my column confirmed my damning verdict. J.W. from B.C responded, “Thanks for your refreshing honesty, calling a spade a spade. We do take a pill for every damn ache and pain.

    Just what was that mysterious substance Marco Rubio popped into his mouth during the latest Republican debate on CNN? While attention was focused on another debater, a video shows Rubio subtly slipping something out of his right pocket and popping it in his mouth. Pundits have made all sorts of suggestions: "It was a Hillary Clinton anti-choking throat lozenge." "The pills keep his body from rejecting the control chip in his brain." "Don't be ridiculous guys, robots can't take pills." "Who would want a president that needs pills to keep him in control of his own head?" Armchair analysts have...

    Millions of fake pills from China, some with no active ingredients and others with the wrong contents, have been uncovered and confiscated by customs officers in France. ... “Drug research in China has fallen under a cloud since 2006 because 13 of the top 20 global drug makers have set up research and development centers in China. Yes, it’s cheaper to do research there, but, as one auditor said, ‘with cheaper research comes greater risk,’” she wrote. ... There also are whole factories in China with up to 15,000 people employed for the purpose of counterfeiting products.

    I recently marked a particular anniversary of my birth.  I won’t say my age but it’s a prime number multiplied by ten, older than 30 and not yet 70.  I didn’t mark the day in any particular way.  Yeah there was a “happy birthday” from my wife and kids, but no huge celebration.   I didn’t want one. Passing that milestone makes one somewhat introspective and brooding about the arc of one’s life.  I was just twenty, for God’s sake!  What happened to all those years?  I still feel like a big kid.  I still watch Looney Tunes (love Road...

    GOT DRUGS? The D.E.A. is calling on Americans to empty their medicine chests and turn in their private stash of potentially dangerous pharmaceuticals. But what's more American than self-medication? And how else to make it through election season? Republicans oppose such sweeping confiscations and the "Pledge to America," taking a limited-government approach, promises to seize only any "unspent stimulus." Nancy Pelosi explains in song why Congress is not covered by ObamaCare. They have their own plan that gives them special benefits and heavy drug use may be the reason that Congress is so ineffective.

    The Alamo flea market sits right off South Texas’s lengthy Highway 83; a sprawling, dusty, labyrinth of a place. Under canopies in the converted parking lot, vendors in dark sunglasses stand behind tables heaped with piles of clothing, barking in Spanish and hawking their wares. The air is hot and muggy, thick with the scent of grilled corn and chili. Customers browse simple items—miracle-diet teas, Barbie dolls or turquoise jeans stretched over curvy mannequins—but there are also shoppers scanning the market for goods that aren't displayed in the stalls. Tables lined with bottles of medicine like Tylenol and NyQuil have...

Those same sources say part of the allegations that lead to the investigation include the exchange of pills and firearms for coveted overtime shifts at the maintenance facility.

    New York City schools are offering young girls a full menu of birth control options, free of parental counsel, thanks to an unpublicized project by Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration. School nurses handed out 12,721 doses of the Plan B One-Step “morning-after” pill in 2011-12, up from 10,720 in 2010-11 and 5,039 in 2009-10, the New York Post reports. Mona Davids, president of the NYC Parents Union, was stunned by the report. “I’m in shock,” she said. “What gives the mayor the right to decide, without adequate notice, to give our children drugs that will impact their bodies and their psyches?...

School nurses supplied with the drugs, which can cause a very early abortion, are dispensing “Plan B” and other oral or injectable birth control to girls as young as 14 without telling their parents — unless the parents...

    The world will recognize the Depression we have tried to cover up. This is not a US-centric story. The Eurozone will get the unemployment and tax consequences too. Germany will be forced to choose between propping up the entire rest of the Euro (which it can't) and detonating it and going back to the Deutsche Mark (which it will be forced to.) There is a very high probability of war that comes out of this, although the exact trigger is not something I can forecast. War is the classical solution to these problems, and it is unlikely to be different...

    So you state that President Obama is depressed?  How did you come by this information?  From a direct source still working within the White House on a daily basis.  As I had stated previously, tensions at the White House have reached a critical stage.  The infighting among staff is off the charts.  More recently, the president has increasingly withdrawn emotionally from the day to day demands of his job – he has become what was described to me as “empty”.  Empty?  That is correct – empty.  ....   But still…(interrupting) I would also add what you well know.  I have...
  • Ritalin boosts learning by increasing brain plasticity

    03/07/2010 12:05:10 PM PST · by decimon · 58 replies · 388+ views
    Doctors treat millions of children with Ritalin every year to improve their ability to focus on tasks, but scientists now report that Ritalin also directly enhances the speed of learning. In animal research, the scientists showed for the first time that Ritalin boosts both of these cognitive abilities by increasing the activity of the neurotransmitter dopamine deep inside the brain. Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers neurons use to communicate with each other. They release the molecule, which then docks onto receptors of other neurons. The research demonstrated that one type of dopamine receptor aids the ability to focus, and another...

    On June 24, 2009, President Obama made the following statement on an ABC Obama Infomercial, “Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but just taking the pain killer.” This is the wise counsel of a man who has never known life and death on an intimate level. This comes from a man who has led a sheltered existence and never considered serving his country other than a partial term in the senate and a few months in the White House. Are you prepared to have this spoiled untested man make life and death considerations for your loved ones. Life...
