Medical Laboratories Are Reporting Findings For Gene Testing They Have Not Received Consent For
May 17, 2013 | JunkHealthcare | D.Mihalovic
Genetic testing is now officially crossing into dangerous territory as patients are routinely denied informed consent for genes they have given no authorization to test for. This type of clinical testing has long required patient consent and patients have had a "right not to know" the results. However, as 21st century medicine now begins to use the tools of genome sequencing, patient have no opportunity to opt-out of specific gene testing except to decline the entire sequencing. The act is unethical and critics charge that pharmaceutical companies may be to blame in influencing testing protocols to ultimately increase the percentage of a medicated demographic.

Societal vs Individual Risk - Medical Injury Poses The Greatest Risk To Your Health
May 14, 2013 | JunkHealthcare | Editor
Education is the key to health, wellness, longevity, and freedom from societal dysfunction. The more we follow medical propaganda, the higher the risk of death. This chart has been created to show the percentage of fatalities of people that are subjected to identified ‘risk’ from an outside source, if they are exposed to this risk, such as medicine, accidents, war, poisoning, etc. Note how tiny the risk is from herbal medicine and supplements...yet codex alimentarius has identified these natural treatments as ‘high risk’ and is actively removing our access to these safe and effective treatments. Medical injury poses the greatest risk to society simply because vastly more citizens are exposed to that risk and hence die.
A Safe Way To Naturally Whiten Your Teeth
May 13, 2013 | OralHealth | E.Schumacher
Many people are obsessed with white teeth. We associate white with clean and healthy. In fact, each year, Americans spend approximately $1.4 billion on tooth-whitening products -- and that's just over-the-counter solutions. As a person ages, the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes less porous and phosphate-deficient. Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, foods and vegetables rich with carotenoids or xanthonoids. Certain antibacterial medications can also cause teeth stains or a reduction in the brilliance of the enamel. And even ingesting colored liquids like coffee, tea and red wine can also discolor teeth.
Hemp Could Free Us From Oil, Prevent Deforestation, Cure Cancer and It's Environmentally Friendly - So Why Is It Illegal?
May 13, 2013 | Sustainability | M.Torres
Hemp is a tall, beautiful and gracious looking annual plant that can reach heights over twelve feet. Although hemp (cannabis sativa) and marijuana (cannabis sativa var. indica) come from a similar species of plant, they are very different and confusion has been caused by deliberate misinformation with far reaching effects on socioeconomics as well as on environmental matters. The reason hemp is illegal is not because of any negative impact to the environment or human health, but exactly the opposite. It is so environmentally friendly, nutritionally and medicinally beneficial, that it provides too many abundant resources which would make it impossible for powerful corporations to compete.
