As Obama pushes new regulations, UK eyes privatizing its health care By Gene J. Koprowski Filmmaker Michael Moore glorified the United Kingdoms National Health Service in his 2007 documentary Sicko, making a cult film argument that socialized medicine works. But Prime Minister David Cameron, the Tory MP who heads a coalition government in England, is apparently not a Moore fan: He is working to partially privatize the NHS, beginning a massive outsourcing of medical services to private health care providers throughout the U.K. Britains media, in particular the Washington PostHuffington Post hybrid The Guardian, is publishing near-panic-attacks alerts daily ...

Health Premiums to Skyrocket Says Architect of Obamacare
Post Date: 2012-02-14 19:21:42 by CZ82
Health Premiums to Skyrocket Says Architect of Obamacare Jonathan Gruber is an economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He also has the distinction of being one of the principle architects of both Romneycare and Obamacare. In 2010, Gruber provided an analysis of Obamacare for the White House. In September 2010, Obama announced to the nation, As a consequence of the Affordable Care Act, premiums are going to be lower than they would be otherwise; health care costs overall are going to be lower than they would be otherwise. Now in a recent interview, Gruber said that he is backtracking on that analysis. Based upon a more recent analysis conducted in 2011, he ...

19 Facts About Abortion In America That Should Make You Very Sick
Post Date: 2012-02-11 14:44:48 by hondo68
Every single day, a silent horror kills more Americans than were killed on 9/11. Every single year, this silent horror kills about as many Americans as have been killed on all the battlefields in all of the wars in U.S. history combined. This silent horror is called abortion, and it is a national disgrace. Overall, more than 50 million babies have been slaughtered since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. We have become a nation with so little regard for human life that nobody even really talks that much about this issue anymore. But the truth is that it is at the very core of what is wrong with America. As I have written about previously, we have become a nation that is obsessed with ...
New Photos Reveal Stress Of Obama's First Term In Office Has Rapidly Aged Americans

The pressure of the Obama White House is plainly evident on the faces of citizens across the country. WASHINGTONRecent side-by-side photographic comparisons of Americans before and after he assumed the presidency have confirmed the stress of Barack Obama's time in the White House has taken a significant toll on the U.S. populace, dramatically accelerating the nation's signs of aging.

Fluoride Linked to #1 Cause of Death in New Research Anthony Gucciardi Groundbreaking new research has linked sodium fluoride to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Researchers found that fluoride consumption directly stimulates the hardening of your arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis that is highly correlated with the #1 killer. Sodium fluoride is currently added to the water supply of many cities worldwide, despite extreme opposition from health professionals and previous studies linking it to decreased IQ and infertility. In their research, scientists examined the relationship between fluoride intake and the hardening (calcification) of the ...

1 in 5 Americans Experienced a Mental Illness in Past Year By Janice Wood Reviewed by John M. Grohol, Psy.D. on January 21, 2012 A new report reveals that nearly 46 million American adults aged 18 or older experienced mental illness in the past year.

Abortion Rates Are Higher In Countries Where Procedure Is Illegal, Study Finds
Post Date: 2012-01-19 09:06:14 by lucysmom
LONDON -- Abortion rates are higher in countries where the procedure is illegal and nearly half of all abortions worldwide are unsafe, with the vast majority in developing countries, a new study concludes. Experts couldn't say whether more liberal laws led to fewer procedures, but said good access to birth control in those countries resulted in fewer unwanted pregnancies. The global abortion rate remained virtually unchanged from 2003 to 2008, at about 28 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44, a total of about 43.8 million abortions, according to the study. The rate had previously been dropping since 1995. About 47,000 women died from unsafe abortions in 2008, and another 8.5 ...

States are pushing it on Medicaid cuts
Post Date: 2012-01-12 11:37:46 by lucysmom
To get a sense for how desperate states are to cut Medicaid costs, think about this: Several of them are seeking federal permission to impose short, inflexible annual limits on hospital stays, no matter how sick or severely injured the patient is. While the states face severe budget squeezes, imposing unaffordable burdens on some of their sickest and most vulnerable residents is hardly a responsible answer, or one that will be felt by the poor alone. Hospitals will feel pressured to cut stays short, but they also say they'll continue to provide essential care, so the costs will be recovered by pushing up the price of care for bill-paying patients. snip Medicaid patients generally ...

European Health Care: Economic Malpractice [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2012-01-01 10:26:02 by CZ82
European Health Care: Economic Malpractice By Hugh de Payns Any reasonable person does not take satisfaction in the failure and destruction of another. This is especially true when the other is innocent of any wrongdoing or lack of judgment. Yet sometimes, epic failure can constructively serve as an example of what not to do. If the individual states of our nation are a laboratory of democracy, then the states of Europe are the laboratory of socialism. What we are witness to in Greece, and eventually in Spain, Italy, and possibly France, is the painful death of the welfare state. Credit markets are locking up all over the continent; meanwhile, trillions have been pumped into ...

ObamaCare Abominations By John Stossel President Obama says his health care "reform" will be good for business. Business has learned the truth. Three successful businessmen explained to me how Obamacare is a reason that unemployment stays high. Its length and complexity make businessmen wary of expanding. Mike Whalen, CEO of Heart of America Group, which runs hotels and restaurants, said that when he asked his company's health insurance experts to summarize the impact of Obamacare, "the three of them kind of looked at each other and said, 'We've gone to seminar after seminar, and, Mike, we can't tell you.'

Purging Cells in Mice Is Found to Combat Aging Ills

wo 9-month-old mice from the study. The one on the right received the drug to eliminate senescent cells. In a potentially fundamental advance, researchers have opened up a novel approach to combating the effects of aging with the discovery that a special category of cells, known as senescent cells, are bad actors that promote the aging of the tissues. Cleansing the body of the cells, they hope, could postpone many of the diseases of aging. The findings raise the prospect that any therapy that rids the body of senescent cells would protect it from the ravages of aging. But many more tests will be needed before scientists know if drugs can be developed to help people live longer. ...

Cancer Feeds on Fructose, America's Number One Source of Calories Anthony Gucciardi, Fri, 30 Sep 2011 15:51 CDT High-fructose corn syrup is the primary source of calories in the United States. In addition to containing mercury, a known carcinogen, cancer cells actually feed on high-fructose corn syrup after it is metabolized by the liver. A new study, published in the Expert Opinion on Therapeutic Targets, examined the link between refined sugar and cancer. The results add further evidence to the reports of many health experts and scientific studies that have drawn the connection between excess sugar consumption and the development of cancer. The researchers highlighted the numerous ...

Yes, if a four year old runs around too much and doesn't want to sit still and study his or her ABCs, it may well be time to drug the child into submission, according to the new guidelines.
