Government-Sponsored Study Destroys DEA’s Classification of Marijuana as ‘Medically Useless’


Thursday, 05 July 2012

‘A government-sponsored study published this month in The Open Neurology Journal concludes that marijuana provides much-needed relief to some chronic pain sufferers and that more clinical trials are desperately needed, utterly destroying the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) classification of the drug as having no medical uses.

While numerous prior studies have shown marijuana’s usefulness for a host of medical conditions, none have ever gone directly at the DEA’s placement of marijuana atop the schedule of controlled substances. This study, sponsored by the State of California and conducted at the University of California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research, does precisely that, driving a stake into the heart of America’s continued war on marijuana users by calling the Schedule I placement simply “not accurate” and “not tenable.”’

‘A report released by Medco Health Solutions Inc., the biggest U.S. pharmacy-benefit manager, shows that over 25% of children and teens are involved with taking prescription medications – although that number may have risen over the past couple years.

Powdered dead baby pills used as medical cure-all in South Korea


Thursday, May 10, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

 
(NaturalNews) Customs officials in South Korea were horrified to discover recently that there is an active, underground drug trade involving powdered, dead babies. Numerous sources confirm that thousands of capsules containing dead baby remains in powdered form were confiscated in recent months in South Korea after travelers tried to smuggle these supposedly “cure-all” drugs in from China.

According to reports, corrupt medical personnel in China are selling aborted and still-born baby corpses to medical companies, which then secretly store them in people’s home refrigerators. When it comes time for processing, these companies then retrieve the bodies, dry them in microwaves, and grind them into powder, which is then injected into capsules.

It’s Trendy to Have Cancer: Barbie to Roll Out ‘Cancer Doll’ with Bald Head, Chemo Side Effects


Wednesday, 11 April 2012 06:22

 

‘A Facebook petition signed by more than 157,000 people has prompted the Mattel company to create a new Barbie doll in the likeness of a cancer victim. According to News.com.au, the bald-headed doll, which will be dubbed “a friend of Barbie,” is set to be released in 2013, and will come with an assortment of head dressings and clothing commonly worn by real-life female cancer victims.

Cancer rates are apparently skyrocketing so much in the U.S. today — even among children — that certain individuals feel Mattel should release a cancer-stricken Barbie doll for children in order to keep up with this disastrous trend. These individuals, in other words, appear to fully endorse the bizarre materialization of one of America’s most deadly conditions into a children’s toy.’

Cold showers provide a gentle form of stress that leads to thermogenesis (internal generation of body heat), turning on the body’s adaptive repair systems to strengthen immunity, enhance pain and stress tolerance, and ward off depression, overcome chronic fatigue syndrome, stop hair loss, and stimulate anti-tumor responses.

‘According to an article published by the Los Angeles Times, more than 110,000 active-duty Army troops last year were taking prescribed antidepressants, narcotics, sedatives, antipsychotics and anti-anxiety drugs.
