Purging Cells in Mice Is Found to Combat Aging Ills
Post Date: 2011-11-03 00:08:02 by Ferret Mike
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
Post Date: 2011-10-25 18:26:53 by CZ82
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 ...
Healthy babies being given dangerous, unneeded prescription drugs
Post Date: 2011-10-20 18:46:01 by Capitalist Eric
(NaturalNews) The American Academy of Pediatrics is now encouraging the diagnosis of so-called Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in preschool age kids and calling for the drugging of those little ones with drugs like Ritalin if they don't respond to "behavior management techniques." 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. But that's not the only disturbing news about Big Pharma and mainstream medicine's push to put younger Americans on potentially dangerous drugs. Now comes a warning from Dr. Eric ...
CDC: Antidepressant Use Skyrockets 400% In Past 20 Years
Post Date: 2011-10-20 12:44:06 by Brian S
Use of antidepressant drugs has soared nearly 400% since 1988, making the medication the most frequently used by people ages 18-44, a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows. Eleven percent of Americans ages 12 years and older took antidepressants during the 2005-08 study period, the authors write. They add that though the majority of antidepressants were taken to treat depression, the drugs also can be used for anxiety disorders and other conditions. The data are from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys, which included information from 12,637 participants about prescription-drug use, antidepressant use, length of use, severity of depressive ...
Massachusetts Tries to Rein In Its Health Costs

Massachusetts Tries to Rein In Its Health Costs By ABBY GOODNOUGH and KEVIN SACK Published: October 17, 2011 BOSTON On the Republican campaign trail, the health care debate has focused on the mandatory coverage that Mitt Romney signed into law as governor in 2006. But back in Massachusetts the conversation has moved on, and lawmakers are now confronting the problem that Mr. Romney left unaddressed: the states spiraling health care costs. Gov. Deval Patrick vowed to crack the code on costs and lower the states health care spending. After three years of study, the states legislative leaders appear close to producing bills that would make Massachusetts ...
Experts Issue New Warnings In Listeria Outbreak (dispose of any cantaloupe if you don't know where it's from)
Post Date: 2011-09-29 11:47:58 by Brian S
As the death toll from the listeria outbreak climbed, federal health officials issued new warnings Wednesday to consumers to dispose of any cantaloupe they have if they don't know where it's from. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed 72 illnesses, including 13 deaths, from listeriosis linked to whole melons grown by Jensen Farms in Holly, Colo. Three other deaths are currently under investigation. Cantaloupes usually don't last for more than two weeks in the refrigerator and the melons were recalled on Sept. 14, yet health officials still are urging consumers to check to see where any whole cantaloupes are from. "If it's not Jensen ...
GM Feed Toxic, New Meta-Analysis Confirms
Post Date: 2011-09-06 12:15:19 by lucysmom
EXTRACTS: A meta-analysis on 19 studies confirms kidney and liver toxicity in rats and mice fed on GM soybean and maize, representing more than 80 percent of all commercially available GM food; it also exposes gross inadequacies of current risk assessment. A team of independent scientists led by Gilles-Eric Séralini at Caen University in France carried out a meta-analysis combining the results of 19 previous studies , and their report concluded: From the regulatory tests performed today, it is unacceptable to submit 500 million Europeans and several billions of consumers worldwide to the new pesticide GM-derived foods or feed, this being done without more controls (if any) ...

Shortage of Vital Drugs Shows Another Free Market Failure in Health Care

Shortage of Vital Drugs Shows Another Free Market Failure in Health Care By: Patrick Malone & Associates P.C. | DC Injury Lawyers The U.S. faces a growing shortage of the low-profit but vital generic drugs that cancer patients and other desperate folks rely on. These drugs are made in places like India and China in plants that the Food and Drug Administration lacks power to inspect. Meantime, Big Pharma focuses on new high-profit but low-benefit drugs. The latest examples of new FDA approvals: Provenge, a drug for prostate cancer which on average extends life by four months at a cost of $93,000, and Yervoy, a melanoma drug with a price tag of $120,000 for a similar average benefit of ...
Preventive Care, Obamacare Style
Post Date: 2011-08-24 09:35:27 by Happy Quanzaa
While President Obama rests up at Martha's Vineyard, people whose lives should be saved by new and existing cancer drugs are driving from hospital to hospital in search of medicines in short supply thanks in part to Obamacare's implementation. Over the past two years shortages have developed for over 180 drugs, including cancer treatments. The shortfall is the result of stricter FDA regulation, government price controls on already discounted but complex drugs, and policies that discourage the use of new medications. Companies, facing lower prices, tighter regulation and increasing government control over what drugs will be used and when, are exiting the U.S. market and investing in ...

(See Why Does Tampa Student Bomb Plot Surprise Anyone) I also stated if anyone didnt believe the argument I used, then they needed to do some research over the past 10 years and they would find a number of articles where professional psychiatrists have even defended pedophilia. As if it were meant to be or just perfect coincidental timing, I found a newly posted article claiming that some members of the American Psychiatric ...
When Two (or More) Become One: Selective Reduction for Multiple Births
Post Date: 2011-08-16 19:39:12 by Sebastian
After years of trying to conceive, Dr. Kelly Ross was stunned to discover that she was pregnant with not just one, but three babies. The long-awaited news "I'm pregnant" now came with a mixed bag of emotions and concerns. "I never thought I'd be in that position. All of a sudden I found myself with three babies," says Ross, who is the director of pediatric hospitalist medicine at Missouri Baptist Medical Center. Though she had knowingly transferred three embryos during her in vitro fertilization, the chances of all of the embryos taking was only about 3 percent, so Ross never even considered the possibility that she would have to deal with triplets. "It ...
Illinois Shutting Down Artisan Ice Cream Makers for Crime of Using Fresh Fruit
Post Date: 2011-08-11 17:41:11 by hondo68
If You Love Food, This Should Make You Angry Photo from Busy Beaver Buttons. The State of Illinois is shutting down local, artisan ice cream makers for such terrible offenses as using fresh fruit instead of fruit syrup and fresh cream instead of pre-packaged soft serve mix. What, you say? How can this be? Health officials in this state are known for being overzealous when it comes to making sure that small, independent businesses follow obscure rules - and when I say small and independent, I'm talking about businesses that are often owned and run by 1-2 people renting space in a shared, licensed commercial kitchen. These are not corporations with large amounts of money who have the ...
AIDS rates rising in young black faggots

HIV infections in U.S. stable but disparities exist (Reuters) - The number of Americans newly infected with HIV remained stable between 2006 and 2009, but infections rose nearly 50 percent among young black gay and bisexual men, U.S. experts said on Wednesday. New data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal progress since the peak of the HIV epidemic in the 1980s. But the sharp increases in infection rates among young black men who have sex with men show there is much more work to do, they said. "We're very concerned about these increases among young gay men," Dr. Kevin Fenton, director of the CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, said in a ...

Birth control defined as 'preventive medicine' M Catharine Evans The Institute of Medicine (IOM), funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, convened a "panel of experts" last November to discuss whether birth control constitutes preventive medicine under ObamaCare. The women's health amendment included in the Affordable Care Act requested screenings for mammography, osteoporosis and "a definite focus on family planning." Based upon the IOM's report released last month HHS just yesterday approved the non-profit organization's recommended guidelines mandating insurance companies cover 100% of a wide range of contraception options ...
Health care spending to explode as Obamacare implemented

Health care spending to explode as Obamacare implemented By:Conn Carroll | Senior Editorial Writer Follow Him @conncarroll | 07/28/11 2:57 PM. National health spending is expected to grow by at least 8.3 percent in 2014 when much of President Obamas health care law is implemented according to a new report by government analysts published in Health Affairs. After growing only 4.9 percent between 2011 and 2013, health spending will soar as millions Americans are either added onto Medicaid or start receiving subsidized insurance through the health exchanges. Virtually every type of health care spending will grow faster under Obamacare than it would have otherwise without the new ...
Obama Eyes Medicare Part D

Obama Eyes Medicare Part D Posted by Tait Trussell, Jul 18th, 2011 President Obama wants to severely wound the most successful government entitlement program and thereby undermine freedom of choice while putting at risk new biopharmaceutical research. Even though he and many Democrats wont face the reality of the foreboding bankruptcy of Medicare and Social Security entitlement behemoths, Obama wants to make mincemeat of the prescription drug plan for seniors. That plan is known as Medicare Part D. What makes it so noxious to ultra-liberals is that it employs the power of the marketplace, not top-down central planning, as Grace-Maria Turner, president of the Galen ...

Agency warns giant plant that causes blindness, blisters spreading across NY
Post Date: 2011-07-05 17:42:19 by Happy Quanzaa
ALBANY, N.Y. A monster plant with flowers the size of umbrellas and sap that causes blisters and blindness is spreading across New York. It's the giant hogweed, an invasive species, and the Department of Environmental Conservation is asking for help locating outbreaks so they can send crews to nip it in the bud. The agency has a Giant Hogweed Hotline at 845-256-3111 for people to call and report sightings. Callers are asked to provide photos and site information, but avoid touching the plant. This is DEC's fourth year of controlling giant hogweed. Six crews totaling 14 people will visit most of the 944 known giant hogweed sites. Sites with less than 400 plants will be ...

Planned Parenthood of Indiana Admits to Undercover Callers That Women Dont Need Them by John Hayward, 06/29/2011 Back in April, the Indiana state legislature voted to deny federal funding, including Medicaid, to Planned Parenthood, which has 28 clinics in the state. Governor Mitch Daniels signed the bill in May. Wisconsin and Texas have been considering similar measures, while Kansas and North Carolina have already passed legislation to defund Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the state, performing more than half of Indianas abortions, according to their own statistics. Long-standing laws prohibit the use of federal funding for ...
RomneyCare Brings High Healthcare Costs, Calls for Price Controls

RomneyCare Brings High Healthcare Costs, Calls for Price Controls Written by Michael Tennant Wednesday, 29 June 2011 00:00 Anyone who believes ObamaCare will mean lower healthcare costs and higher-quality healthcare has only to look to the state that has been suffering under the prototype for ObamaCare for the past five years to be disabused of such notions. Massachusetts healthcare costs far exceed those of other states; and now Bay State legislators and Gov. Deval Patrick (D) are resorting to the age-old, destined-to-fail approach to high costs: price controls. The result, of course, will be a shortage of quality healthcare. Since 2006, when then-Gov. Mitt Romney (R) signed ...
Medical secret police calling doctors

Medical secret police calling doctors Thomas Lifson The federal government is conducting a stealth survey, calling up doctors and lying to them, seeking a way to catch doctors turning down Medicare and Medicaid patients, now that ObamaCare will be vastly expanding the number of people seeking treatment but paying with government programs that pay substantially less than private insurance. But don't worry, the new secret police promise that they will keep the data produced by their deceptive tactics confidential. The details are found in a New York Times story by Robert Pear: Alarmed by a shortage of primary care doctors, Obama administration officials are recruiting a team of ...

Chicago Trib Investigation Exposes Abortion Records Corruption Monday, 20 June 2011 01:52 PM EDT Tom Ciesielka News - Joe Scheidler, national director of the Pro-Life Action League, is responding to the Chicago Tribune's article, "State abortion records full of reporting gaps," which reveals that thousands of abortion complications have gone unreported. The front-page article shows that not reporting abortions is not only illegal but unethical, because it's the only way that the state can know what types of complications have occurred, and how many women actually got abortions. Also, by not reporting abortions, the state may have allowed abortion providers to operate ...
Pfizer puts into place ban on arsenic-based chicken food

Targeted Drugs: The Future Of Cancer Treatment?
Post Date: 2011-06-10 08:22:20 by sneakypete
In the future fight against cancer, doctors are looking beyond afflicted organs -- whether lung, brain or stomach -- and finding new answers by disrupting the genetic mechanisms of specific tumor cells. Novel cancer drugs at the center of a major medical meeting this week point to a future in which patients are more routinely tested for gene mutations underlying their cancer to match them with a targeted treatment. That would represent a major shift from the current medical paradigm, in which a patient's disease is more closely identified with an area of the body to determine what battery of chemotherapy or other one-size-fits-all regimen is needed. "We are not waging a single ...
