A Silent Epidemic?
Social Media is the New Tobacco Remember all the scientific studies that started coming out showing nicotine was more addictive than heroin? There are now multiple studies discussing how addictive Facebook is. In one study, it discusses how Facebook triggers the same regions of your brain as cocaine and gambling. A more recent study showed that Facebook is actually more addictive than nicotine, even finding that merely seeing the Facebook logo can trigger ‘spontaneous pleasure cravings’.
Science Fiction Becoming Reality?
Rats with HUMAN brains ethical nightmare of lab-built rodent hybrids which EXIST MUTANT RATS with human brains have been developed in US laboratories investigating an Alzheimers cure – posing serious ethical questions over when a rat stops being a rat and starts being a human. In a scenario straight out of a horror movie some of these organoids have then grown physical connections with the host rat brain – creating a human-rat mutant.
FDA Is Open To Medical Marijuana For Vets, But Other Agencies Stand In The Way When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned cannabidiol producers against making medical claims about cannabis products, it seemed par for the course for any federal agency. Cannabis is simply not considered medicine in the eyes of the government. But the FDA actually appears pretty open to considering the potential of marijuana as medicine. “We’ve had good experiences working with the FDA,” said Brad Burge, communications director at the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). The non-profit is currently conducting the first FDA- and DEA-approved clinical trial on whole-plant marijuana and enrolled its 30th participant on October 26. “We have a long relationship with the FDA — a lot through our MDMA research. They’ve been open to approving research protocols into Schedule I drugs,” said Burge. “It’s other regulatory agencies that have been standing in the way.”
Colorado ranked last on ‘fattest states in America’ list After recent data released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Colorado has made dead last on the list of the ‘fattest states in America.’ The recent data showed that seven in 10 US adults ages 20 and older are either overweight or obese, but not in Colorado.

At Least Wait Till After Thanksgiving!
Christmas music is bad for your mental health, British psychologist says Stressing before Christmas? Listening to the cheerful, jolly music will not help you relax, a British psychologist said. In fact, listening to Christmas music could harm a person’s mental health, clinical psychologist Linda Blair told Sky News. Blair said the continuous playing of Christmas music in the car or at stores reminds people of all the things they need to do before the holiday arrives. “You’re simply spending all of your energy trying not to hear what you’re hearing,” Blair told Sky News. Blair said store workers were “more at risk” of being mentally drained by the array of cheerful music. The same songs being played constantly makes it hard for employees to “tune it out” and “unable to focus on anything else.”

Cholesterol Lowering Drug Scandal: CoQ10 Essential to Senior Health but Depleted by Statins What would motivate a retired married couple to attempt a petition demanding a policy of advising CoQ10 when doctors prescribe cholesterol-lowering statin drugs?

DR. BOB SEARS MEDICAL BOARD CASE UPDATE: LA TIMES TRIES TO SQUEEZE, SHAME AND GOAD THE CALIFORNIA MEDICAL BOARD TO GO AFTER BOB SEARS AND OTHER VACCINE EXEMPTION WRITING DOCS HARDER AND FASTER We recently received hearing dates in late May, 2018 for Dr. Bob’s hearing before an administrative law judge. The case is primarily about his writing a note excusing the child from vaccination due to two prior severe vaccine reactions. But May, 2018 apparently is not soon or severe enough for the LA Times which today published a story complaining that Dr. Bob and many other doctors are still writing medical exemptions that don’t meet the standards of medical exemptions by conventional pediatrics and the CDC (under which standards there are no medical conditions which justify a blanket exemption from all vaccines throughout childhood). The Times seems to want all these docs rounded out or put out of business today. The title of the article says it all: “Why hasn’t California cracked down on anti-vaccination doctors? A loophole in state law”
HELP US SAVE HOMEOPATHY! A predatory law firm (that is currently being sued for racketeering
by others), sued us in 2011 for false advertising, stating that homeopathy cannot work. In the last 15 years, 75+ frivolous lawsuits have been targeting homeopathic companies.
In 2014, we won the trial against the firm. An appeal was sent to The San Diego Court of Appeal, and this court is known to be against any alternative medicine. Last week, we received the opinion of the Court of Appeal of San Diego. The decision was filled with errors, sided against us unfairly, dismissed all arguments that were the basis of our win in 2014, and strong case law backing homeopathy from 2003.
If this decision stays, it could wipe out the entire industry and start an avalanche of new class-action lawsuits that will then shut down a lot of companies and practices.
