Too pale to fly? Etihad stops redhead from boarding due to white ‘sickly’ skin

Etihad Airways almost stopped a girl from boarding due to her naturally pale complexion. (AP File Photo) Etihad Airways has apologized to a Scottish family after airline staff prevented a redheaded teen with a naturally pale complexion from boarding, saying she looked "sickly." 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. She was cuddling into her mum in the line,” father Paul Wain ...

The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-07-29 15:08:17 by Tooconservative

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 ...

Report: nearly one-third of veterans in VA backlog died before receiving VA healthcare

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 ...

Just your daily reminder that Medicaid is a ‘humanitarian catastrophe’

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. "Look I'm a burrito," Chloe shouts. Her 4-year-old sister, Jackie, swoops in for a bite — and a hard push. "Ow!" Chloe shouts. "Mom! Jackie pushed me!" Just two sisters playing, occasionally sparring, as dad, James Christian, and mom, Mary Carter, watch nearby. ...

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.

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 ...

Big Pharma will never solve the world’s health problems because it makes too much money off disease

One of the most fraudulent industries in America today, the pharmaceutical drug racket, has very little to do with actually healing people, and everything to do with generating obscene profits for corporate executives and their vast network of drug dispensers. After all, where would Big Pharma be financially if it developed real cures for sick patients who would naturally no longer need pharmaceuticals once they’re healed? It would be out of business, that’s where — hence the reason why a continuous drug “pipeline” regularly spews out new drugs to treat diseases but not actually cure any of them. It’s common sense, really, from a business perspective. But ...

In 2013, the idiots, uh, distinguished solons of the Vermont legislature passed a law requiring food companies to label their products containing ingredients derived from modern biotech crops. The "findings" used to justify the legislation is simply the litany of scientific disinformation that has been peddled by anti-biotechnology extremists for years now.

In point of fact, the anti-biotech activists are not consumer advocates at all. What they are really aiming at is to confuse consumers so that they will ...

The success of Gibson's book, The Whole Pantry, and her smartphone application, which advocates natural therapies, has been largely dependent on her high-profile as a cancer survivor. Asked if she had ever had cancer, Ms Gibson told the magazine: "No. None of it's true. "I don't want forgiveness. I just think [speaking out] was the responsible thing. ...

The US government has finally acknowledged the anticancer properties of cannabis. At this point it’s pretty difficult to ignore the evidence, including countless testimonials of people who cured their cancer with cannabis extracts. The latest example is a young man whose attempts at traditional cancer treatments of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy failed to get rid of his stage-three bowel cancer. Cannabis oil was a last ditch effort, and it worked.

'Reversible' abortions: how sound is the science?

Arizona has passed a law that requires doctors who provide drug-based abortions to tell women that the process may be reversed after taking the first dose. Some claim that the science is flawed and it's just another way of putting pressure on women to change their mind about having an abortion.How can an abortion possibly be reversed?A drug-induced abortion, as opposed to a surgical one, is an option during the first nine weeks of pregnancy and involves taking two drugs 48 hours apart. It is between 87 and 98 per cent effective, depending on the stage of pregnancy. Obviously, it cannot be reversed once the process is complete but it can be interrupted before the second dose is taken.How ...

Exploding Head Syndrome is a condition that afflicts those who suffer it with sudden starts during the night, awakenings caused by loud, exploding noises, in the head—hallucinatory, perhaps—which may also be accompanied with similar sensations of an actual explosion.

He says that this condition may occur is as many as one in five young people too. Furthermore, he also admits that there is still not much known about the condition and, more importantly, what the possible remedies might be. The ...

"Because there was so little preparation, the world lost time ... trying to answer basic questions about containing Ebola," writes Gates (whose Gates Foundation is a supporter of NPR).
