Recent Studies Show That Psychedelic Drugs Are Not Bad For Mental Health — But Alcohol Is [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-10-10 12:16:27 by Deckard
116 Comments
It is a matter of provable fact that psychedelics are the safest compounds within the modern drug culture. The strongest hallucinogen known to man dimethyltryptamine is actually less damaging to the human body than America’s favorite fix, caffeine. Many substances that are deeply embedded in American culture such as alcohol, caffeine, nicotine or pharmaceutical narcotics are in fact toxins, while psychedelic compounds are actually physically benign and many times already occur naturally in human chemistry. What this means is that the chemicals which make psychedelics do what they do are actually naturally occurring compounds that are chemically suited for your body. Study after study ...

Since Oklahoma Legalized Cannabis Oil, These Two Children Have Been Seizure Free

< Oklahoma City, OK — Last month, Oklahoma lawmakers came to their partial senses and legalized cannabis oil as a means of medication. HB 2154 or “Katie’s Bill,” named after Katie Dodson, was ceremonially signed into to law yesterday by Governor Mary Fallin on Katie’s 11th birthday. Despite being a staunch advocate against legalizing this part of nature, Governor Fallin finally caved to the pressure and allowed for the legalization of cannabis oil only. Her daily doses of potent pharmaceuticals had put Katie in a daze. She began to regress and barely spoke, according to her family. However, all that changed in May when Katie began taking the now legal CBD oil. ...

Chris Christie Orders NJ National Guard Leader to Lose Weight or Else (Health Nazi)

Just imagine, for a moment, being told you need to lose weight by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Well, that is the situation that Air Force Brig. Gen. Michael L. Cunniff finds himself in this week after he reportedly ignored orders from the Pentagon to attend physical-fitness tests and get his weight under control. Christie has given Cunniff, who leads the New Jersey National Guard, 90 days to meet the U.S. military’s fitness requirements. “The Governor has expressed directly to the General that his failure to meet that standard or to provide notification of his formal reprimand is both unacceptable and disappointing,” Christie spokesperson Kevin Roberts said in a ...

After Decades of Denial National Cancer Institute Finally Admits that “Cannabis Kills Cancer”

After decades of claiming that cannabis has no medicinal value, the U.S. government is finally admitting that cannabis can kill cancer cells. Although still claiming, “there is not enough evidence to recommend that patients inhale or ingest cannabis as a treatment for cancer-related symptoms or side effects of cancer therapy,” the admission that “cannabis has been shown to kill cancer cells in the laboratory,” highlights a rapidly changing perspective on medicinal cannabis treatments. In the most recent update to the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) website included a listing of studies, which indicated anti-tumor effects of cannabis treatment. Preclinical studies ...

An almost complete version of a tiny human brain has been grown in a US lab in a move that could bring major strides to the treatment of neurological diseases, a scientist says. Rene Anand, a professor at Ohio State University, has grown in a dish a brain equal in maturity to that of a five-week-old fetus, his university reported. "It not only looks like the developing brain, its diverse cell types express nearly all genes like a brain," Anand said. Around the size of a pea, the brain in a lab dish includes multiple cell types, all major regions of the brain and a spinal cord, but lacks a vascular system, the university said. It was grown from human skin cells and is claimed ...

The FDA Just Approved OxyContin to Be Prescribed to Children
Post Date: 2015-08-15 21:45:08 by Deckard
3 Comments
By Josh Mur The infamously untrustworthy Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has furthered its reputation as one of America’s most beloved hypocrites with their latest motion. It was reported on Thursday that the FDA has just approved OxyContin prescriptions for children between the ages of 11 and 16 years old. For those unfamiliar, OxyContin is an opiate-based pharmaceutical painkiller used to ease severe pain. Aside from being known for its powerful effects on users, it is also notorious for its widespread abuse. Its effects on the mind and body are strikingly similar to heroin, making it dangerously addictive. It typically contains anywhere between 40-160 milligrams of OxyCodone, ...

Chronically Ill 6-Year-Old Walks for First Time After Medical Cannabis Treatment

By Josh Mur The medicinal benefits of cannabis used to inspire heated debate—used to. With ongoing discoveries and successful treatments, denying the efficacy of cannabis treatment is no longer a matter of opinion but, rather, a complete fallacy. Around 100 years of propaganda, fear-mongering, and criminalization has attempted to not only discredit the plant’s medicinal value, but to portray the virtually harmless flower as dangerous, as well. Thankfully, those days of irrational fear and denial are slowly coming to an end. In fact, the steady shift in the general public’s perspective on cannabis has been significant enough for a growing number of parents to consider cannabis ...

Medical Marijuana States See Painkiller Deaths Drop by 25%

Throughout the United States, prescription drug overdoses have been a major problem. But now, with the rise of medical marijuana in many states the number of deaths from pharmaceutical painkillers has been plummeting.In states where medical marijuana is legal, deaths have been dropping 25%.This rate is consistent with the growing rate of medical marijuana use. This seems to indicate, to most, that the reason for the decline is due to more and more people abandoning the harsher painkillers, and opting for the plant form of relief. Newsweek reports that “overdose deaths from these pharmaceutical opioids have approximately tripled since 1991, and every day 46 people die of such overdoses ...

CVS drops Viagra from insurance coverage

Those famous little blue pills will no longer be covered by CVS. Bloomberg reports CVS Health Corp. is dropping Viagra from its coverage next year. The prescription drug, which treats erectile dysfunction, will still be sold at CVS/pharmacy stores but CVS/Caremark insurance won't help with the cost starting in January 2016. Customers are instead being encouraged to get help in the bedroom from Cialis, the yellow ED drug made by Eli Lilly, instead of the Pfizer's brand. The New York Daily News reports CVS wouldn't say why it dropped Viagra, but noted that pharmacy benefit managers sometimes get discounts from drug makers by agreeing to shut out competitors.

Grace Wain, 14, was traveling with her family to the Maldives for a vacation on Monday, July 6.  After arriving at the Manchester airport to catch a connecting flight to Abu Dhabi, the tired teen, who was standing close to her mother, was called out by an agent at the check-in desk. “Grace was a bit tired and hot and bothered.

The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture [Full Thread]

Consumers of organic foods are getting both more and less than they bargained for. On both counts, it’s not good. Many people who pay the huge premium—often more than a hundred percent–for organic foods do so because they’re afraid of pesticides.  If that’s their rationale, they misunderstand the nuances of organic agriculture. Although it’s true that synthetic chemical pesticides are generally prohibited, there is a lengthy list of exceptions listed in the Organic Foods Production Act, while most “natural” ones are permitted. However, “organic” pesticides can be toxic.  As evolutionary biologist Christie ...

This is an astonishing report from the Huffington Post. According to leaked slides from a Veterans Affairs whistleblower, 238,657 of 847,822 veterans whose enrollments were pending with the VA were “likely deceased.” More than 28% of pending VA health applicants showed up in external databases (external to the VA, that is) as deceased before the VA completed their enrollments. A VA spokesman responded to the report by explaining that some of these now-deceased applicants probably obtained alternative healthcare through Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, or private insurance. That’s no excuse, the whistleblower told Huffington Post: As for some ...

I’m sure most of you already know this, but Medicaid expansion–a critical component of Obamacare–is an abject disaster. In Virginia, almost a quarter of doctors aren’t accepting new Medicaid recipients–and those already enrolled into this government-run health care program experienced no improvement in care.   So, how is this a good blueprint for the rest of the country? Well, as you know, it isn’t–and the figures get worse regarding who is actually receiving care under this government program. As the Foundation for Government Accountability reiterated during their conference in June, there are still a lot of misconceptions about Medicaid ...

What would you do if your 3-year-old son told you assuredly that he wanted to be a girl? An Oakland, Cali. couple told their child it was OK, and a sad boy become a joyful little girl. It's controlled after-school anarchy at the Christian-Carter household. Seven-year-old Chloe has rolled herself up in an exercise mat in the living room of the family's lovely Oakland, Calif., home.

A series of papers in the Journal of the American Medical Association is starting to correct the shameful legacy of drug war politics over cannabis science. But a research catch-22 persists. By David Downs East Bay Express July 1, 2015 The nation's top medical organization released a major series of papers on medical cannabis last week in the Journal of the American Medical Association, in a move that constitutes a small step for the AMA, but a giant leap in cannabis medical history. In five key papers, teams of researchers systematically reviewed dozens of clinical studies of marijuana, speaking in clear language that the "use of marijuana for chronic pain, neuropathic pain, and ...

Study: Scant evidence that medical pot helps many illnesses

CHICAGO (AP) -- Medical marijuana has not been proven to work for many illnesses that state laws have approved it for, according to the first comprehensive analysis of research on its potential benefits. The strongest evidence is for chronic pain and for muscle stiffness in multiple sclerosis, according to the review, which evaluated 79 studies involving more than 6,000 patients. Evidence was weak for many other conditions, including anxiety, sleep disorders, and Tourette's syndrome and the authors recommend more research. The analysis is among several medical marijuana articles published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. They include a small study suggesting ...

After the Democrats passed Obamacare without a single Republican vote, Republicans generally (and wisely) united around the notion that they shouldn’t pursue partial repeal or “fixes” to Obamacare.  Rather than willingly giving Obamacare a newly bipartisan sheen, they publicly committed to repealing it in full.  (The only exception to this partial-repeal moratorium was supposed to be in cases, like with Obamacare’s individual mandate or insurer bailout, where partial repeal would weaken Obamacare and thus advance the cause of repeal.)The party’s focus on repealing and replacing Obamacare has clearly served it well while reflecting public sentiment.  ...

It might seem manly to drink beer, but a chemical found in hops might be the cause of some very feminine attributes. Hops, which gives beer its flavor, are female flowers of the hop plant and contain high levels of phytoestrogen—a plant estrogen. According to research conducted by acclaimed herbalist and author Stephen Harrod Buhner, hops can also contribute to breast development in men and to a condition called “brewer’s droop”—or impotence brought on by heavy drinking. “[From] long-term exposure to the estrogenic properties of hops, [they] eventually have difficulty sustaining erection,” Buhner told Vice News. In his book, Sacred and Herbal Healing ...

On the surface, James Harrison is just an average guy. He loves his daughter and grandchildren, collects stamps, and goes for walks near his home on Australia’s central coast. But it’s what’s under the surface that makes him extraordinary — specifically, what’s flowing in his veins. Known as “The Man with the Golden Arm,” nearly every week for the past 60 years he has donated blood plasma from his right arm. The reasons can be traced back to a serious medical procedure he underwent as a child. “In 1951, I had a chest operation where they removed a lung — and I was 14,” recalls Harrison, who is now aged 78. “When I came out of the ...

Most hospitals charging highest rates are for-profits

MIAMI — Twenty of the 50 U.S. hospitals that charge the most for their services are located in Florida — and all but one of them are for-profit, according to a study released Monday. Most states, including Florida, don't limit what hospitals charge for their services, making it easier for hospitals to set billing rates several times higher than what Medicare charges. U.S. hospitals charged on average more than three times the Medicare-allowable costs, according to a study in the June issue of the journal Health Affairs. The study uses 2012 Medicare data to examine hospitals that charge on average more than 10 times their costs. The study comes amid a national push to ...

A new blood test can find just about every virus you ever caught — in a single drop of blood. It's not just an interesting historical record — doctors hope the test might be used to find out whether viruses might cause a range of chronic diseases such as diabetes or heart disease, and to see whether infections early in life can affect your immunity later. "VirScan is a little like looking back in time: using this method, we can take a tiny drop of blood and determine what viruses a person has been infected with over the course of many years," said Stephen Elledge, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute researcher at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, who led ...

Dallas's Parkland Hospital treats a lot of people without health insurance. On a November day in 1963, emergency room doctors at this county hospital frantically tried to save an American president who could not be saved. These days, emergency room doctors frantically try to treat 240,000 patients every year. "So you can see we have every treatment area filled up. Beds are in the hallways and the rooms are all full," says Dr. John Pease, chief of emergency services. In Texas, about 1 in 4 people is uninsured. By federal law, the county hospital's emergency room cannot turn sick patients away, no matter their ability to pay, so Parkland opens its arms. Last year it cost ...

Psychiatric drugs lead to the deaths of over 500,000 people aged 65 and over annually in the West, a Danish scientist says. He warns the benefits of these drugs are “minimal,” and have been vastly overstated. Research director at Denmark’s Nordic Cochrane Centre, Professor Peter Gøtzsche, says the use of most antidepressants and dementia drugs could be halted without inflicting harm on patients. The Danish scientist’s views were published in the British Medical Journal on Tuesday. His scathing analysis will likely prove controversial among traditional medics. However, concern is mounting among doctors and scientists worldwide that psychiatric medication is doing ...

The FDA serves the bottom lines of Big Food and Big Pharma. After pharmaceutical companies provide questionable testing reports, they pay the FDA licensing fees for the drugs’ approvals. And Big Food has their way with their ingredients with the FDA. This type of corruption is not new. In the early 1900s, Dr. Harvey Wiley headed the Bureau of Chemistry, the precursor to today’s FDA. He created a guideline to ban bleaching wheat chemically to produce white flour. This process destroys nutrition and leaves toxins in white flour. Wiley quit his position after he had become frustrated from the lack of enforcement for his ban. The legacy of unhealthy bleached flour white bread ...
