Do you chew gum? Which kind – the pesticide corn syrup kind or the nervous-wreck, sugar-free kind? Do you like breath mints? Which kind – pesticide corn syrup or agitated, sugar-free? How do you feel about food agents that are toxins and cause nervous disorders? Do you feel that it is fair that food companies can put just about anything they want in products we consume? America is the land of the free, home of the… chronic sick care scams and shams. Every time you check out at Continue reading
Ever heard of “shift work disorder?” It’s a new disease being played up by the pharmaceutical industry to sell drugs so dangerous that even the home page of the drug website admits the drug may kill you. Continue reading
More and more, our collective activism is reshaping the world economy to punish criminal corporations and demand transparency on topics like GMOs, drug patents, animal cruelty and more. And we are winning on every front! Continue reading
Of all the great gifts our Creator has given us, there is nothing that compares to the miracle of childbirth. Watching your child open his eyes and draw his first breath in this world is a magical and life-affirming experience that will bring you to tears.
But for many families, the birth of a child can also bring with it a terrifying, lingering question that I pray never Continue reading
Twenty years ago, I’d sit down in front of the daily crossword puzzle each morning with a pen in one hand and a stopwatch in the other. Nowadays, I sometimes feel like I could time myself with a sundial.
Sometimes it feels like we spend the first half of our lives Continue reading
If you or someone you know has a child that has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), chances are the child is actually just fine. At least this is what the “father” of ADHD, Leon Eisenberg, would presumably say if he were still alive. On his death bed, this psychiatrist and autism pioneer admitted that ADHD is essentially a “fictitious disease,” which means that millions of young children today are being needlessly prescribed severe mind-altering drugs Continue reading
For years Big Pharma has been trying to convince us that they’re opening new frontiers in medical treatment — but a new study has me more convinced than ever that frontier medicine is exactly what these drug pushers have in mind.
You see, if you lived in a frontier town 150 years ago, a couple times a year you’d be treated to the sound of a colorfully decorated wagon rolling into town. At the reins would be a carnival barker with cases of a miracle potion that could cure everything that ails you — Continue reading
A federal appeals court recently upheld a staggering $142 million judgment against the drug giant Continue reading
A new report from the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service (OMNS), a top research group, claims that niacin — and not dangerous statins — is by far the most effective and affordable cure for keeping your nagging high cholesterol in check.
Niacin — a form of vitamin B3 — has been studied in more than 42,000 scientific papers, Continue reading
When it comes to buying airtime, billion-dollar drugs like Crestor, Lipitor and Zocor are giving a certain green gecko a run for his money. In fact, these days the only way to avoid the constant onslaught of commercials for cholesterol-lowering statins is to turn off your television.
But I’m hoping a new study takes some of the Madison Avenue shine off of these potentially unsafe, and possibly even deadly, Continue reading
In 1965, after learning how car manufacturers were stubbornly refusing to make their products safer, consumer advocate Ralph Nader labeled the American automobile “unsafe at any speed.”
Well, after a new report Continue reading
Sweating is just a nasty annoyance to many modern-day people. Sure, it keeps you from overheating during exercise or if you are exposed to extremely hot weather. But most often, perspiration is seen as a negative body secretion to be stopped whenever possible with chemical-laden antiperspirants. On the positive side, many traditional cultures have used induced sweating – such as sitting in sweat lodges – Continue reading
Conventional breast cancer treatment is energy-sapping. It’s mood-altering. It’s permanently disfiguring. Continue reading
Ah, there’s nothing like a heavy dose of caffeine, corn syrup and highly acidic phosphoric acid in the morning. And bringing it to you is none other than PepsiCo, the company that habitually uses aspartame, MSG and GMOs across its product line. Apparently drinking an aspartame-laced, caffeine-spiked soda for lunch and dinner isn’t enough: PepsiCo wants to own Continue reading
Let’s face it — we couldn’t possibly have a discussion on overprescribed medications without mentioning Big Pharma’s billion-dollar cash cow, antibiotics. Continue reading
