Cheney Too Old For Transplant? Bioethicist Weighs In
Post Date: 2012-03-25 15:55:26 by Brian S
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. ...

CBO Analysis: 2014 is When the Real Obamacare Excrement Will Hit the Fan March 14, 2012 The Congressional Budget Office says that Obamacare is gonna cost twice what he told us. The magic number for Obamacare was a trillion dollars. They had to keep that number under a trillion dollars in order to get it passed. I'm not gonna revisit why and I'm not gonna go back through all the details and the minutia and the arm twisting and the games they were playing to get Obamacare passed because they eventually got it passed. They tried toying around with the idea "deeming" it to have been passed, not even voting on it, a number of things. But it eventually got passed. One of the ...

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 ...

What You Lose When You Sign That Donor Card Giving away your organs sounds noble, but have doctors blurred the line between life and death?. By DICK TERESI Doctors don't have to tell you or your relatives what they will do to your body during an organ harvest operation because you'll be dead, with no legal rights. . The last time I renewed my driver's license, the clerk at the DMV asked if she should check me off as an organ donor. I said no. She looked at me and asked again. I said, "No. Just check the box that says, 'I am a heartless, selfish bastard.'" Becoming an organ donor seems like a win-win situation. Some 3.3 people on the transplant waiting ...

That would make the total cost for birth control pills for a student who decided to use them for all ...

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 ...

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.

In their research, scientists examined the relationship between fluoride intake and the hardening (calcification) of the ...

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 ...
