The Ethics of Decoding the Genome of the Unborn
Post Date: 2012-06-11 19:39:05 by CZ82
The Ethics of Decoding the Genome of the Unborn June 11, 2012 by Giacomo Many people are hailing the recent report from a group of scientists at the University of Washington. They discovered a way to accurately determine the genome of an unborn baby without any invasive testing. When a woman is pregnant, 10% of her blood contains the DNA of the baby. Knowing this, the scientists took blood samples from pregnant moms around eighteen weeks into the pregnancy and ran a complete genome test on it. They also took saliva samples from the father and ran a genome test on him. Combining the two tests, they mapped out the genome of the unborn baby. To test the accuracy of their results, they ...
(RobamaCare cost cutting) Remove feeding tubes from the dying elderly (and get a cash bonus!)
Post Date: 2012-06-07 10:38:04 by hondo68
TIME Magazine is peddling a death agenda propaganda piece with a new issue that features these words on the cover: HOW TO DIE. Inside, the magazine promotes a cost-saving death agenda that encourages readers to literally pull the feeding tubes from their dying elderly parents, causing them to dehydrate and die. This is explained as a new cost-saving measure that drastically reduces return hospital visits by the elderly
yeah, because dead people dont return to the hospital, of course. Watch my full commentary on this special death panel issue of TIME Magazine at:http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=53166F436FD2309EC97C414D01F7AB39 Or on YouTube ...
Salt, Bad for You? Nope, Never Was
Post Date: 2012-06-05 14:53:59 by Brian S
(Newser) Time to crack open those Sun Chips, folks: Looks like salt is not only good for you, avoiding salt may be bad for you. In a daring New York Times piece, Gary Taubes challenges the standard salt-is-deadly wisdom by rolling out a few studies and quoting a few experts. "This eat-less-salt argument has been surprisingly controversialand difficult to defend," he writes. "Not because the food industry opposes it, but because the actual evidence to support it has always been so weak." For 40 years, we've heard how salt raises our blood pressure and causes life-shortening hypertension. Turns out that's just a hypothesis, though, and studies ...
Feds Fine Utah School for Soda Machine, Declare Snickers Bars Nutritious (nanny state dumbasses)
Post Date: 2012-05-22 16:07:58 by hondo68
A school in Utah was recently fined $15,000 by the federal government for the crime of selling soda to students during lunch. The school used the money made from the sale of soda to fund school programs. According to federal rules, schools are only allowed to sell soda before and after lunch. The rule is vague and open to interpretation. For example, the way the rule reads you can buy before lunch starts a carbonated beverage, buy school lunch, sit down in the cafeteria, eat the school lunch and not be in violation, Davis High Principal Dee Burton told KUTV in Salt Lake City. It is OK to sell Gatorade and Snickers and Milkyway bars because they have nuts and ...
Amish Farm Kids Remarkably Immune To Allergies: Study
Post Date: 2012-05-05 14:35:41 by Brian S
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Amish children raised on rural farms in northern Indiana suffer from asthma and allergies less often even than Swiss farm kids, a group known to be relatively free from allergies, according to a new study. "The rates are very, very low," said Dr. Mark Holbreich, the study's lead author. "So there's something that we feel is even more protective in the Amish" than in European farming communities. What it is about growing up on farms -- and Amish farms in particular -- that seems to prevent allergies remains unclear. Researchers have long observed the so-called "farm effect" -- the low allergy and asthma rates found among ...
Number Of US Newborns With Drug Withdrawal Triples
Post Date: 2012-04-30 19:03:03 by Brian S
CHICAGO (AP) -- Less than a month old, Savannah Dannelley scrunches her tiny face into a scowl as a nurse gently squirts a dose of methadone into her mouth. The infant is going through drug withdrawal and is being treated with the same narcotic prescribed for her mother to fight addiction to powerful prescription painkillers. Disturbing new research says the number of U.S. babies born with signs of opiate drug withdrawal has tripled in a decade because of a surge in pregnant women's use of legal and illegal narcotics, including Vicodin, OxyContin and heroin, researchers say. It is the first national study of the problem. The number of newborns with withdrawal symptoms increased from ...
FDA May Let Patients Buy Drugs Without Prescriptions; Move Would Increase Patients’ Out-Of-Pocket Costs
Post Date: 2012-04-30 12:27:03 by Brian S
In a move that could help the government trim its burgeoning health care costs, the Food and Drug Administration may soon permit Americans to obtain some drugs used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes without obtaining a prescription. The FDA says over-the-counter distribution would let patients get drugs for many common conditions without the time and expense of visiting a doctor, but medical providers call the change medically unsound and note that it also may mean that insurance no longer will pay for the drugs. The problem is medicine is just not that simple, said Dr. Matthew Mintz, an internist at George Washington University Hospital. You ...
Terrifying New Trend: Grown Men Who Dig 'My Little Pony' (“bronies”)

And, more appallingly, its not done ironically they are proud of it. They call themselves bronies, a terrifying hybrid of bros and ponies. The shows producers and the network honchos are delighted by this unexpected turn of events: We heard during the first season that guys were chatting about it online, and it just snowballed so quickly, said showrunner Meghan McCarthy.

Chicago Man Sues Purina, Wal-Mart Claiming 'Tainted' Chinese Treats 'Killed' His Dog An Illinois man who claims tainted dog treats killed his Pomeranian has sued Nestle Purina and Wal-Mart for $5 million in federal court, becoming the latest dog owner to allege publicly that treats made out of chicken jerky from China have caused sickness or death. Dennis Adkins' lawsuit suit came as Sen.

During a Senate hearing Thursday, Brown urged the FDA to "be as aggressive as possible to find the ...

Will the Supreme Court Let the Death Panel Stand? By David Catron on 4.16.12 @ 6:09AM Unless Obamacare is struck down in its entirety, IPAB will remain. With the possible exception of the individual mandate, the most pernicious contrivance of Obamacare is the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), the fifteen-member committee whose purpose is to ration health care to seniors by manipulating Medicare payment rates. Before the advent of Obamacare, only Congress had the power to make changes to Medicare's reimbursement scheme. Now, unless the Supreme Court strikes down the "reform" law in its entirety, that power will be transferred to the unaccountable political ...
‘Pink Slime’ Furor Means Disaster for U.S. Meat Innovator
Post Date: 2012-04-13 11:21:05 by Brian S
Thirty-one years ago, a young man with no college degree and the restless mind of a tinkerer started an unusual meat-processing company. Eldon Roths Beef Products Inc. bought tons of fatty scraps left over after cattle were carved into steaks and roasts. Roth concocted a way to use centrifuges to spin the fat away and quick-freeze the remaining meat into a pink pulp that made ground beef leaner when it was mixed in. He called it lean finely textured beef. McDonalds Corp. (MCD), Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Burger King Worldwide Holdings Inc., Kroger Co., and Yum! Brands (YUM) Inc.s Taco Bell chain used it. Roth opened plants in Texas, Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska, ...
Shift workers 'risking' Type 2 diabetes and obesity
Post Date: 2012-04-13 09:34:35 by lucysmom
Shift workers getting too little sleep at the wrong time of day may be increasing their risk of diabetes and obesity, according to researchers. The team is calling for more measures to reduce the impact of shift working following the results of its study. Researchers controlled the lives of 21 people, including meal and bedtimes. The results, published in Science Translational Medicine, showed changes to normal sleep meant the body struggled to control sugar levels. Some participants even developed early symptoms of diabetes within weeks. Shift work has been associated with a host of health problems.

Individual Mandate: Republicans Were for It Before They Were Against It. In Fact, It Was Their Idea

Individual Mandate: Republicans Were for It Before They Were Against It. In Fact, It Was Their Idea In the Republican presidential debate Tuesday night, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich acknowledged, apparently in an unguarded moment, that a core element of "ObamaCare," the requirement that all Americans be enrolled in either a private or public health insurance plan, was a proposal originated by the Heritage Foundation, a powerful conservative think tank. Gingrich made the admission as he was denying former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney's accusation that the former Republican leader was once a supporter of the mandate. I'm sure the other presidential hopefuls ...
Cheney Too Old For Transplant? Bioethicist Weighs In

Dick Cheney has just joined a list of high-profile people, including Steve Jobs, Mickey Mantle, Evil Knievel and David Crosby who, received a transplant and thereby created a controversy. Cheney received a heart on Friday from an anonymous donor at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia after a 20-month wait. What is controversial about that? Cheney is 71 years old. He has been through numerous previous operations that indicate he has other serious medical problems. He has only been able to survive due to the implantation of a left-ventricular assist device (LVAD) a partial artificial heart -- that has kept him going long past the point where his own heart could have kept him alive. ...

House Passes Legislation To Ban Synthetic Drugs FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The House has passed legislation aimed at curbing abuse of synthetic drugs being sold over the counter and online. Democratic state Rep. John Tilley of Hopkinsville said the dangerous substances have caused hallucinations, psychosis, even death. The House voted 96-0 for the bill Tuesday after hearing Tilley, the sponsor, describe the harmful effects of synthetic drugs. In one high-profile case, Tilley said a mother who had used the substances in western Kentucky left her 2-year-old child on a highway because she thought the toddler was demon-possessed. The legislation would ban any substances intended to mimic ...
