The Great Flu Vaccine Hoax: New Evidence
Post Date: 2017-11-09 08:18:33 by Deckard
Apparently, the powers-that-be want everyone to take the seasonal flu vaccine out of loyalty and blind faith. Because actual science reveals the hoax. A new study, published in the PLOS Journal on 10/23, by contributing authors from the Scripps Institute and the University of Pennsylvania, is titled: A structural explanation for the low effectiveness of the seasonal influenza H3N2 vaccine. Oops. Low effectiveness? The public has been taught to believe the vaccine is quite effective. Here is a key quote from the study: It is common to use chicken eggs for culturing clinical isolates and for large-scale production of vaccines. However, influenza virus often mutates to ...

Legalizing marijuana sends a dangerous message to kids
Post Date: 2017-11-08 13:58:32 by Gatlin
One day during my youthfulness, I was engaging in a joint that I had bought, and suddenly I experienced side effects that werent normal. It was obviously laced with something that sent me on a trip that scared me to death. During this event, I asked Jesus to help me and promised to never smoke weed again. He did help me and I never smoked weed again. Now, Ive had my trials and joys in my life just like everyone else and times where Ive soared and others that were devastating, but throughout these experiences, I did not turn to marijuana to help or comfort me; I turned to Christ, the One who rescued me. A few weeks back, there was the election where several pot ...
Study: Nearly 70% of online CBD marijuana extracts are mislabeled
Post Date: 2017-11-08 05:49:56 by Gatlin
With 29 states and the District of Columbia having now legalized medical marijuana, many consumers are trying out various types of extracts containing cannabidiol (CBD)a relatively safe, non-addictive component of marijuana that does not generate a high and has shown potential for treating a variety of conditions, including pain, anxiety, and epilepsy. But those buying CBD extracts online may not be getting what they signed up for, according to new research. In a study of 84 CBD products sold by 31 companies online, blind testing found that only about 31 percent of them contained the amount of CBD listed on the label (within +/- 10 percent). And some of the products ...
With online medical marijuana, it’s buyer beware
Post Date: 2017-11-08 05:41:19 by Gatlin
(Reuters Health) - People who buy medical marijuana online may not necessarily get exactly what they expect when their package arrives in the mail, new research suggests. Online, almost 70 percent of products made from cannabidiol a marijuana plant extract also called CBD had higher or lower concentrations of this drug than the label described, researchers report in JAMA. Too little or too much CBD can be unsafe or ineffective. For the study, researchers searched online for medical marijuana products and bought 84 products marketed as containing CBD from 31 different companies. Roughly one in five of the products also contained THC, the chemical in cannabis that makes gives ...

Marijuana 'may be worse than cigarettes for cardiovascular health'
Post Date: 2017-11-07 07:10:09 by Gatlin
Research suggests that marijuana use may raise the risk of death from hypertension by more than threefold. People who use marijuana may be three times more likely to die from high blood pressure than non-users of the drug, a new study finds. The researchers say that their findings indicate that marijuana use is a greater risk factor for poor cardiovascular health than cigarette smoking. Lead study author Barbara A. Yankey, of the School of Public Health at Georgia State University in Atlanta, and her team recently reported their results in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology. High blood pressure, or hypertension, arises when the force of blood pushing against the blood vessel ...
Smoking marijuana is dangerous. It can dull the brain of HIV patients
Post Date: 2017-11-07 06:46:40 by Gatlin
A new study has showed that more frequent current marijuana use is associated with a measure of cognitive dysfunction. Weed smokers, beware. Previous studies have already linked smoking up to psychological problems and increased risk of stroke and heart failure. Now, a new study has linked marijuana use with cognitive dysfunction in people with HIV infection who have an alcohol or other drug use disorder. While researchers at Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH), Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), and Boston Medical Center (BMC) did not detect effects of lifetime cumulative exposure, the study showed that more frequent current marijuana use was associated with a ...

Marijuana use may lead to 26% increase in the risk of stroke and a 10% increase in the risk of developing heart failure, an Indian-origin researcher has found. Like all other drugs, whether theyre prescribed or not prescribed, we want to know the effects and side effects of this drug, said the studys lead author Aditi Kalla from Einstein Medical Centre in Philadelphia, US. Its important for physicians to know these effects so we can better educate patients, such as those who are inquiring about the safety of cannabis or even asking for a prescription for cannabis, Kalla said. The study drew data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, which ...
MARIJUANA: WHY DANGEROUSLY POTENT POT IS MAKING PEOPLE LOSE THEIR MINDS AND MEMORIES
Post Date: 2017-11-06 15:05:30 by Gatlin
High-potency pot is causing psychiatric issues, including addiction and memory problems. New strains of the recreational drug have higher levels of the active chemical and not enough of another compound that keeps the drug safe. And as a new study this week documents, the riskiest pot is coming from the black market which could be an argument for expanding legalization. The new report, published this week by Manchester Metropolitan University in the U.K., tested 50 samples of cannabis in the city of Manchester. The study was conducted by Volteface, a London-based policy think tank seeking reform for marijuana laws to improve safety of the drug by making it legal, and thus limiting ...

Post Date: 2017-11-06 14:27:24 by Gatlin
New research presented today at APHA's 2017 Annual Meeting and Expo examined the effect of marijuana use and dependence on life achievement in young adults. The study found that young adults dependent on marijuana and alcohol were less likely to achieve adult life goals, defined by the study as educational achievement, full-time employment, marriage and social economic potential.

Study subjects included 1,165 young adults, whose habits were first assessed at age 12 and then at two-year intervals until they were ...
Smoking marijuana and driving: 33% of teens think it's legal. Some think it isn't dangerous
Post Date: 2017-11-06 01:45:48 by Gatlin
A third of teens think smoking marijuana and driving is legal, according to a new study. Out of 2,800 teens surveyed, 33% said driving under the influence of marijuana is legal in states where it's recreational. More than 20% of teens reported it's common among their friends. Parent perceptions (1,000 were surveyed) were similar: 27% said it's legal and 14% said it's common among friends.

Heating Up Marijuana Could Increase Cancer Risk
Post Date: 2017-11-05 14:17:14 by Gatlin
Researchers say the practice of "dabbing" marijuana may produce cancer-causing chemicals. How much do you know about dabbing? The latest trend in marijuana consumption, researchers now say, produces carcinogenic substances. Dabbing uses highly potent marijuana concentrates that are vaporized on a special dabbing rig, similar to a glass water pipe. However, unlike a traditional pipe, dabbing rigs use a small heated surface, called a nail, typically made of glass, metal, or ceramic. The user applies the marijuana concentrate, or dab, to the nail, releasing vapors that they inhale. Marijuana concentrates are often extracted using butane, resulting in a final product ...

Marijuana use holds three-fold blood pressure death risk: study
Post Date: 2017-11-04 08:03:28 by Gatlin
LONDON (Reuters) - People who smoke marijuana have a three times greater risk of dying from hypertension, or high blood pressure, than those who have never used the drug, scientists said on Wednesday. The risk grows with every year of use, they said. The findings, from a study of some 1,200 people, could have implications in the United States among other countries. Several states have legalized marijuana and others are moving toward it. It is decriminalized in a number of other countries. Support for liberal marijuana use is partly due to claims that it is beneficial and possibly not harmful to health, said Barbara Yankey, who co-led the research at the school of public ...
Maine's governor vetoes marijuana bill
Post Date: 2017-11-03 20:44:23 by Gatlin
Residents of Maine voted to legalize marijuana in 2016. But their governor on Friday vetoed a bill that would regulate and tax the sale of recreational marijuana, dealing a set back to the state's effort to implement retail markets. Paul LePage said one reason he vetoed the bill is because the federal government prohibits cannabis. "Until I clearly understand how the federal government intends to treat states that seek to legalize marijuana, I cannot in good conscience support any scheme in state law to implement expansion of legal marijuana in Maine," he said, in a letter to state lawmakers. "We need assurances that a change in policy or administration at the federal ...
Marijuana use is associated with worse outcomes in symptom severity and violent behavior in patients with posttraumatic stress disorder.
Post Date: 2017-10-30 15:49:14 by Gatlin
OBJECTIVE; An increasing number of states have approved posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a qualifying condition for medical marijuana, although little evidence exists evaluating the effect of marijuana use in PTSD.

Little evidence that marijuana helps chronic pain, PTSD, studies find
Post Date: 2017-10-30 15:08:31 by Gatlin
(CNN)Medical marijuana is now legal in 28 states and the District of Columbia. Increasingly, people are turning to cannabis to treat a range of symptoms and conditions, including nausea, bipolar disorder and seizures. But when it comes to using marijuana to treat chronic pain or post-traumatic stress disorder, two related reviews published Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine find little scientific evidence to support either its effectiveness or its safety. Up to 80% of people who request medical marijuana want to ease pain, while more than a third cite PTSD as their primary reason, the US Department of Veterans Affairs researchers wrote, citing a separate recent small study. ...
Marijuana Use and PTSD among Veterans
Post Date: 2017-10-30 08:11:42 by Gatlin
Marijuana Use and PTSD among Veterans Marijuana use for medical conditions is an issue of growing concern. Some Veterans use marijuana to relieve symptoms of PTSD and several states specifically approve the use of medical marijuana for PTSD. However, controlled studies have not been conducted to evaluate the safety or effectiveness of medical marijuana for PTSD. Thus, there is no evidence at this time that marijuana is an effective treatment for PTSD. In fact, research suggests that marijuana can be harmful to individuals with PTSD. [Boldness Added] Epidemiology Marijuana use has increased over the past decade. In 2013, a study found that 19.8 million people reported using marijuana in the ...

After deploying to Iraq for a seven-month tour of duty in 2004, Nigel McCourry recalls, "I was engaged in a fight every day, whether it was gunshots or bombs blowing up next to me or land mines. It was the most intense experience of my life." That experience did not end when McCourry, a U.S. Marine, returned to the United States. "It didn't matter if it was a year or four years or six years after coming back from Iraq," he says. "There was no sense of separation of time. The experience was so fresh that I was constantly reliving it. I was alive in it." Separation was also elusive for Roberto Pickering, another Marine, who arrived in Iraq a year before ...

Deryn Blackwell, from Norfolk, was sent to a hospice shortly after his 14th birthday to live out his final few days. He was frail and in extraordinary pain after a relentless battle with a one in a billion form of cancer, Langerhans cell sarcoma.
