Driving a major highway in California, one can’t miss the giant billboards announcing the coming of Cannafest, a “cannabis festival and trade gathering” featuring vendors “selling wares,” music, games, and a “family interactive zone” for “whole family fun.”1 Such billboards have become commonplace in states with legalized marijuana, but for anyone who grew up experiencing criminal penalties and mandatory viewings of Reefer Madness in high school—a film that shows marijuana driving young people to insanity and criminal acts—this public celebration of pot for the whole family is still a bit m

It’s been wisely said that our bodies are defended from sudden death every single day. As with all living creatures we too are endowed with a number of key regulatory mechanisms. One can only be amazed that they rarely seem to break down, rather than being surprised and disconcerted when they do.
Vibrant, athletic young people who are now bedridden and housebound, formerly high-functioning professionals who have trouble remembering simple words – these individuals all have something in common. A common type of medication called fluoroquinolone antibiotics – often prescribed for such routine ailments as urinary tract infections and prostatitis – have caused devastating health conditions.
The pomegranate has been consumed and used for thousands of years. It is even believed by some that the pomegranate is the fruit that grew in the Garden of Eden, and not actually the apple. Literally meaning seeded apple, the pomegranate is one of the world’s most popular fruits. When you look a little closer, it's easy to see why.
You may have heard about all the wonderful health claims of the infrared sauna: anti-aging abilities, detoxification, weight loss and even more. But are these infrared sauna claims actually backed up and proven by science, and are there any infrared sauna dangers?
Like most heat treatments, there’s a lot of hot air out there … but that doesn’t mean an infrared sauna is bad for you. Quite the contrary, in fact, as research shows heart-healthy, pain-reducing, life-extending benefits of infrared saunas.
Older women with periodontal disease (gum disease) may be at a higher risk for cancer, say researchers. A collaborative study by State University of New York at Buffalo, University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston, TX, and other U.S. institutions has found links between periodontal disease and breast cancer, esophageal cancer and cancer of the gallbladder. Post-menopausal women were found to be at a higher risk for these cancer types if they had gum disease, but periodontal disease can increase your risk for cancer and other health problems at any age.
A consortium of archeologists and researchers from Tel Aviv University have discovered the 3,200-year-old remains of a pregnant Egyptian woman in Southern Israel’s Timna Valley, adjacent to an ancient Egyptian temple in an area once known as “King Solomon’s Mines", according to a report in Haaretz.
Situated in an arid climate with scarce natural resources to sustain life, few human corpses – and no previous female remains – have been unearthed near the copper mines, which were believed to have been exploited for 500 years between the 9th and 14th centuries BCE.
Back in the 1970’s, lead poisoning was a leading topic of conversation, along with the war in Viet Nam and post-mortem Elvis sightings. Back then, researchers discovered that an astonishing 77 percent of children in the US had high levels of lead in their bloodstream. Since lead can have a profound and harmful effect on children’s developing brains, an alarm was sounded. The primary source at that time was household paint. Lead was a common ingredient back then, because it helps paint adhere to walls, last longer, dry faster, and resist water better.

Big Pharma is the ENEMY of America…
To me the average Big Pharma CEO should die in a prison in a cell deep down underground beneath a leaking sewer line coming from the leprosy ward.
From what I am seeing lately, Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions, and about 48 of the 50 individual State’s Attorney Generals agree with me….
Big Pharma has earned this…
Let’s get to it.
