People are replacing their pharmaceutical drugs with medical cannabis, study states People are replacing their pharmaceutical drugs with medical cannabis, according to a new study by the University of Michigan. The study said that it aimed to assess attitudes towards and the utilization of medical cannabis and the mainstream healthcare system among medical cannabis users. 450 adults attending an annual public event advocating for cannabis law reform were surveyed. The majority, 78%, of those surveyed reported using cannabis to help treat a medical or health condition, the survey stated. Medical cannabis useres reported a greater degree of use of medical cannabis and a greater degree of trust in medical cannabis compared to mainstream healthcare. In comparison to pharmaceutical drugs, the study said that medical cannabis users rated cannabis better on effectiveness, side effects, safety, addictiveness, availability, and cost. 42% of those surveyed even stopped taking a pharmaceutical drug due to the medical use of cannabis. Another 38% said that they used less of a pharmaceutical drug due to the medical use of cannabis.
Question of The Day!
Hi Dr. Bell!!!
I’ve heard you stress the importance of silica. Which form do you recommend?? Brand if possible?? I’ve been using Ojio’s Living Silica but am wondering if this is the wrong route; Is plant based better, even if not as “bio-available”? I’ve heard that these liquid, non-plant based forms can be oxidative. Sincere thanks.
Toxic substances found in diapers in France: government agency A variety of potentially toxic substances, including the widely-used weed-killer glyphosate, has been found in babies’ diapers in France, according to a study on Wednesday by the French environment agency ANSES. The study said research had found substances including butylphenyl methylpropional used in beauty products and certain aromatic hydrocarbons as well as glyphosate. All of them pose potential risks. The French government said manufacturers and retailers should ensure that the substances are removed from diapers. The agency said health risks could not be excluded, although French Health Minister Agnes Buzyn said the current situation regarding how diapers were made did not pose dangers to the health of babies.
Stop snuggling hedgehogs, CDC urges amid salmonella outbreak First, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said not to kiss or snuggle with your chickens; now, the agency is cautioning against PDA with pet hedgehogs. They may be cute — if prickly — but lab tests in an ongoing investigation show that pet hedgehogs are probably to blame for a multistate salmonella outbreak. Eleven people are infected in eight states, according to the CDC. There have been no reported deaths, but one person has been hospitalized. The illnesses started in October. Ten of the eleven infected patients said they had contact with a pet hedgehog before becoming sick. Symptoms of salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea and stomach cramps, which can last four to seven days. Most people recover without treatment. Among patients who experience severe illness, the infection can, in rare cases, cause death if not treated promptly with antibiotics.
Parents denied access to their children’s medical records by law A Coralville father recently found out he will no longer have access to his 12-year-old daughter’s medical records, so he asked KCRG’s I9 investigative team to investigate. Kevin Christians, of Coralville, said a letter triggered his concerns alerting him he was losing access to his daughter’s medical records. At the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, parents are no longer able to see test results, messages from doctors and other information once a child turns 12. The letter said the hospital wants children at that age to be more active in their own health care. Christians said he believes 12 is too young to keep parents in the dark. “If you get locked out of being able to see the health care records for your child, that makes parenting even that much more difficult, in my opinion,” said Christians.
YouTube demotes flat-earthers, conspiracy theorists YouTube said Friday it will stop recommending specious videos such as those claiming the earth is flat or promoting bogus theories about the September 11, 2001 attacks. The global video streaming service planned to modify its viewing recommendation system gradually, starting in the United States and later expanding to other countries. Google-owned YouTube, part of the Alphabet holding, said it is scrutinizing how to reduce the spread of content that comes close to but doesn’t quite cross the line of violating its community guidelines. “To that end, we’ll begin reducing recommendations of borderline content and content that could misinform users in harmful ways,” YouTube said in a blog post. “Such as videos promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, claiming the earth is flat, or making blatantly false claims about historic events like 9/11.” YouTube estimated the change would affect less than one percent of content at the service but would improve the experience for users.
Washington is under a state of emergency as measles cases rise As of Saturday, there are 32 confirmed cases of measles in Washington — an outbreak that has already prompted Gov. Jay Inslee to declare a state of emergency. “Measles is a highly contagious infectious disease that can be fatal in small children,” Inslee said in his proclamation Friday, adding that these cases create “an extreme public health risk that may quickly spread to other counties.” As of Saturday, there were 31 cases of the measles in Clark County, which sits on the state’s southern border, just across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. Of the 31 cases, 21 are children between the ages of 1 and 10 years old. There is also one case in King County, which includes Seattle. While the King County website says the man in his 50s is a “suspected case,” the governor said in a news release it is a confirmed case of measles. In a health alert from King County, it was said the man had recently traveled to Clark County.
Eating Fried Chicken Every Day Linked To Early Death A new study should serve as a warning to fans of fried chicken: the delicacy is linked to a risk of early death. A new study done on postmenopausal women in the United States found women who enjoyed fried chicken at least once a day had a 13% higher risk of death from any cause. Meanwhile, women who ate fried fish or shellfish (shrimp and oysters) each day saw a 7% greater risk of dying early. Researchers saw a correlation between fried food and death from heart disease, but didn’t find a link between fried food and cancer. Previous studies have also linked increased intake of fried food to heart disease as well as type-2 diabetes. The study notes that up to a third of Americans eat fast food every day.
Special Guest Richard Flook
Since the death of his mother from breast cancer when he was 12, and a herniated disc that rendered him unable to walk at age 37, Richard Flook has been asking the questions. ‘Why am I sick?’ and ‘How can I heal?’ His ongoing journey lead him to find there was a direct link between certain health problems and specific stressful events. He later discovered exactly how the body absorbs those traumatic situations. Curious to find out what would happen if he reversed that process, he experimented and found that the body would heal itself, completely naturally and often at lightning speed. He named the process Advanced Clearing Energetics or ACE for short, and lectures worldwide and trains ACE online to practitioners.
