January 29, 2015 | Toxins | A.McCarthy
Simple, straightforward and commonsense protections have not been updated for more than 20 years to protect bees. Our imperiled pollinators are in trouble and so are we.

January 28, 2015 | GovernmentAbuse | M.Torres
Is there a difference? Perhaps one of my readers can help me differentiate between one poison and the other. Whether you inhale it, drink it or eat it, a poison is a poison. I don't defend smoking, but there is a shameful double standard that exists at the expense of smokers and they know it.

Fruit juices have come under fire in recent years for a high sugar content, but scientists say the whole picture is not so clear cut.

But that's not the whole story.

Smoking Cessation Drugs Are More Lethal Than Smoking Itself
January 25, 2015 | JunkHealthcare | A.McCarthy
Learning to stop smoking is not easy. You cough. You fidget. You crave. All you want is a cigarette. Just one. You want to go back to the day that you started this process and live that day over. But these days, your doctor can offer you a lot more help in the form of smoking cessation drugs. Yes, that's right, they can even double your chance of quitting.

But hey, at least you'll quit smoking right?

January 23, 2015 | JunkHealthcare | E.Dahl
Sickness is a great business, and the pharmaceutical industry knows this very well. They would have you to believe they are in the health business, but they are not. They are in the business of sickness. And, judging from a business perspective, it is brilliant, but at the same time, corrupt. They are not isolated in the business of sickness; many other associates are involved: the medical system, drug companies with their research departments, and government to supervise and create the sort of treadmill the populous run on: symptomatic treatment, while avoiding cures and prosecuting those who would dare try.
