Health care should be a good thing. It should be caring about people and their health. It should including both preventions of health issues and treatment. Doctors should have the best interest of their patients in their mind. Should…
Unfortunately, often this is not the reality in today’s world. Health care is a disease-oriented profession that looks at treating symptoms with medication rather than looking at the person as a whole and using both prevention and treatment. Continue reading
Judge Reduces Jury Award against Bayer’s Roundup to $78.5 Million
A California judge reduced by more than $200 million a jury verdict linking Bayer’s Roundup weed killer to cancer but upheld the jury’s findings that the company acted with malice.
San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos said the $250 million in punitive damages awarded by the jury must be slimmed down to match the $39.25 million in compensatory damages that the jury found appropriate. If the plaintiff agrees to the reduction by Dec. 7, no new trial is needed.
Bayer-Monsanto Corruption in Action: Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos is considering doing Bayer-Monsanto’s bidding and overturning the jury’s verdict in the Roundup-cancer trial awarding $289 million to DeWayne Lee Johnson. Some jurors are coming forward urging the judge to let their verdict and award to Johnson stand. The judge’s decision could come sometime today. And we hope that Judge Bolanos makes the right decision. Stay tuned…

Dean Brooks grasped on to the shopping cart, suddenly unable to stand or breathe. Later, at a California emergency room, a nurse with teary eyes delivered the news, telling his wife, Deborah, to hold out hope for a miracle. It was December 2015 when they learned that a blood cancer called non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) was rapidly attacking the man’s body and immune system. Continue reading
GREED seems to be the only ‘Cure‘…
~ Foreword ~
What you are about to preview is an introduction ONLY to an intense study recently conducted and published by The American Journal of Medicine. Although we are no fans of much coming from the mainstream medical community, I have found this study to be immensely well researched and is worth your time and attention. What I find most interesting, is their addressing of the financial costs of – in effect – killing oneself – both in life and financial bankruptcy. ~ Ed.
On October 1, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released the final results of a “special assignment” that tested for levels of glyphosate, the weed-killing chemical found in the blockbuster herbicide Roundup. They also posted results for a competing herbicide, called glufosinate, in corn, soy, eggs, and milk during the fiscal year 2016.  Continue reading
I recently got into an argument, again, about cancer. The occasion was a talk by one of my colleagues at Stevens Institute, philosopher Gregory Morgan, on the fascinating history of research into cancer-causing viruses.
The occasion was a talk by one of my colleagues at Stevens Institute, philosopher Gregory Morgan, on the fascinating history of research into cancer-causing viruses. In the Q&A, someone commented on how far science has come in understanding cancer’s causes.
With my usual kneejerk negativity, I lamented that all our knowledge about oncogenes, oncoviruses and other cancer catalysts has not translated into significant reductions in mortality. Continue reading
Diabetic ketoacidosis is a terrible way to die. It’s what happens when you don’t have enough insulin. Your blood sugar gets so high that your blood becomes highly acidic, your cells dehydrate, and your body stops functioning.
The price of insulin in the U.S. from leading manufacturers has more than doubled since 2012. That’s put the life-saving hormone out of reach for some people like Smith-Holt’s son Alec. ~ Bram Sable-Smith for NPR
Diabetic ketoacidosis is how Nicole Smith-Holt lost her son. Three days before his payday. Because he couldn’t afford his insulin.
“It shouldn’t have happened,” Smith-Holt says looking at her son’s death certificate on her dining room table in Richfield, Minn. “That cause of death of diabetic ketoacidosis should have never happened.” Continue reading
Studies suggesting that screening tests like mammograms should be used less do not always find receptive audiences. ~ Ed.
Every year, millions of women flock to their doctors to get their annual mammograms, a breast cancer screening procedure that involves pressing a woman’s breasts between two metal platforms to scope out tumors. But surgeons everywhere are starting to question the controversial practice, which studies show isn’t even an effective screening tool, and is actually harmful to the bodies of women who receive it.

In the age of ‘Truth and Fairness‘ we are quickly finding that neither exists – unless it lines the pockets of BIG Pharma and the AMA. Everywhere we look we are being blocked from truth – albeit – the alternative to what the controllers want us to see and have access to through search engines such as Google, or so-called “social” networks like FaceBook. It matters not whether the subject is news, history or health. They are out to control it all.
Over the past six months, we have seen a marked decline in our readership. Is it censorship? We believe so, and what follows is a clear indicator of same. Continue reading
A San Francisco jury found Monsanto (now owned by Bayer) liable for the glyphosate-induced cancer of Dewayne Johnson, who is dying from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Johnson sprayed glyphosate 20-30 times per year on public school grounds (near children, no less), and he was twice “doused” with glyphosate due to malfunctioning equipment. Continue reading
Americans are breathing enough of a common household chemical to CAUSE Cancer
Interfering with the formaldehyde study is one of several steps Trump’s EPA has taken to side with the businesses the agency is supposed to regulate and undermine the agency’s approach to science, critics say. | Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP Photo
Burying the formaldehyde study is part of an effort by Pruitt and aides to undermine EPA’s research program, current and former officials tell POLITICO.
The Trump administration is suppressing an Environmental Protection Agency report that warns that most Americans inhale enough formaldehyde vapor in the course of daily life to put them at risk of developing leukemia and other ailments, a current and a former agency official told POLITICO.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced a voluntary recall of drugs used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure.
The FDA joins 22 other countries in recalling several drugs, reported Fox News. All of the drugs include the active ingredient valsartan.
Tests showed that there was N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in the recalled products. The FDA reported that NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen (a substance that could cause cancer) based on results from laboratory tests. Continue reading
It happened subtly, over the course of a decade or two. Household cleaners went from being largely soap-based to primarily chemical-based. Cosmetics such as lipstick and blush went from being made from bees wax, plant-based extracts, and strawberries to being pumped full of lead, parabens, and synthetic dyes. A loaf of bread went from being nothing more than flour, yeast, sugar, and salt to a confusing concoction of additives and artificial flavorings. Continue reading
Top psychiatrist warns addictive anti-anxiety meds are being dished out like opioids were in the 90s – and patients are struggling to quit
Opioid prescriptions peaked in 2012. But the rate of benzodiazepine prescriptions climbed 67 percent between 1996 and 2013, and more patients are struggling to quit, Dr Anna Lembke of Stanford warns
America is on track for an epidemic of addiction and overdoses from anti-anxiety medication, a top clinician warns.
With the nation’s attention on prescription painkillers, there has been scant conversation about the climbing rate of people being prescribed benzodiazepines, potent drugs like Xanax and Valium designed to alleviate anxiety and panic attacks on a short term basis. Continue reading
A lawyer on Monday (July 9, 2018) argued that Roundup creator Monsanto hid the cancer-causing effects of their weedkiller and bullied scientists into making claims it was safe. In a landmark lawsuit against the global chemical corporation, the lawyer didn’t hold back in his accusations against Monsanto. Continue reading
