    Maybe one day we’ll have a majority of the Supremes who will admit that. Meanwhile we are not helpless and do not have to wait for that. Congress can take the “legal drug” nomenclature out of the FDA’s powers and reduce it to merely “FDA approved” and “Not FDA approved and still ‘legal’”.

  • Study: Those High-Priced Antioxidants May Be Killing You

    02/20/2017 4:28:03 PM PST · 31 of 61
    Wuli to cba123

    This is not the first recent study questioning the use of anti-oxidants as supposed helpers in preventing disease.

    A recent very large study in Europe on finding no correlation between high-dosage use of anti-oxidants and improved health outcomes looked at the cellular workings of anti-oxidants, and some indicators in their study that suggested health outcomes were more negative with high anti-oxidant doses, and insignificantly different with moderate doses. They looked for why.

    They looked at what exactly “positive” antioxidants do. Primarily they help inhibit cell death. They do that without discrimination of the cells or cell type. What about “bad” cells, like cancer or pre-cancer, or even slightly “bad” cells an organ would be better off if the cell died. Those too have “normal” cell death inhibited by antioxidants. In other words, good or bad, antioxidants are an equal opportunity life saver to cells - any kind, including some you’d be better off without.

    Isn’t there already natural processes trying to extend cell life and permit proper cell death? Yes. Does it seem antioxidants improve those processes. No. Added to the bloodstream they provide signals that help decrease the bodies production of normal cell protection and normal cell death processes, as if THEY, the “antioxidants” were going to do more of that job.

    Eat a good balanced and nutritious diet, and let the supplements industry survive without you.

    In terms of law, the power of the FDA as to “accepted” and “not accepted” drugs and or their use, should make the “FDA accepted” label NOT a “legal requirement” but only one of two labeling requirements, with the other being “not FDA approved”. Then the medical community and the individual can leave it to their own due diligence to accept the “manufacturer’s advertised use”, or not.

    The FDA should be thought of how the medical community KNOWS them to be; just one of a number of “expert” opinions, not the ONLY expert opinion, and one with its own record of being wrong many times.

    The legal matter should only be one of insuring the patient is informed - a remedy is FDA approved or not - but missing the FDA approval should not cause the use of a drug to be illegal, provided those obtaining its use are informed of that. THAT only requires a “labeling” addition of “not FDA approved”. It does not require sending anyone to jail, just because their remedy neither has (maybe even never sought) that FDA approval.

  • Nestle Joins Thousands Of Companies Leaving California Over Anti-Capitalist Lawmakers and Activists

    Wuli to lowbridge

    Nestle has been taking unwarranted flak from Californians on its bottled water industry business there.

    The myth the Greenie Weenies have invented is that water that Nestle is bottling (like in the San Bernardino mountain area) is water that is “taken” from other “more important” uses it could go to in California. In reality, the local water boards have repeatedly shown that Nestle has been a good steward of the water sources it has access to for water it bottles in California.

    Another complaint is that its license for the San Bernardino mountain source has expired. That is true enough, but it is also true that it has been given the legal go-ahead to continue its operations while the license renewal review is pending - which has been years and still not completed by the state and other relevant agencies, due NOT to any “stonewalling” by Nestle.

    In reality, it is NOT the state department’s job to MAKE foreign policy, only to carry it out. The White House makes the decision. Often when the policy fails it is failure of execution on the part of the arrogant self-important flunkies at foggy bottom, and sometimes that is because they did not really get behind the policy as it came from the White House.

  • Michigan Taxpayers Don’t Need to Spend $4 Billion Annually on Infrastructure

    Wuli to MichCapCon

    Most all “infrastructure” has a base of users - vehicle owners for roads, railroad companies for rails, communications companies for communications lines, energy companies for pipelines and power lines, sewer & water users for sewer & water lines, airlines for airports, ect., ect., ect.

    The priorities have gotten out of whack as the funding, and how it is spent, has gotten away from the “beneficiary-pays principle”. If that principle was restored 100%, then (1) users would know that their “user fees” are going to the “infrastructure” for which they are collected, and (2) priorities and spending for infrastructure would be less out of whack.

    A good place to start would be to (1) NOT spend any general revenue funds on roads - fund it all with fuel taxes (** & not with registration & license fees either), with states including in their state fuel taxes the need to distribute funds back to localities on a pro-rata basis, and then (2) remove every form of spending NOT related to roads and their bridges and tunnels from getting funds from fuel taxes.

    [** Vehicle license & registration fees should be set to only recover the cost of providing them, and not to otherwise “generate revenue” for anything else. “Drivers” alone should not be imposed on to provide “general revenue” beyond the things returned to “drivers”. Taxes on the general population should pay for what goes back to the public generally. (Yes, that means I oppose “special” sales taxes of all kinds as well as “exemptions” from a general sales tax when there is one. The best “general taxes” are those applied universally without exceptions and loopholes. They make for the broadest tax base and any need to adjust them is absorbed by everyone generally, not targeted at just certain tax payers. That makes any such adjustment smaller as well, because the base is so large.]

    “Insuring” things in healthcare has not made them cheaper. In fact, it has “insured” that each step of healthcare price increases will be politically masked (protecting health care providers) in higher insurance premiums, with insurers taking the brunt of political angst about the increases; not the doctors, hospitals and others. The ONLY “health care providers” besides insurers that have been attacked for healthcare cost increases is the “long hanging fruit” of the drug companies, as the politically convenient and non-Liberal (compared to doctors and hospitals) targets. Meanwhile, in spite of anecdotal evidence in a minority of cases, drug prices, adjusted for inflation, have been going down since JUST BEFORE GWBush added the Medicare drug plan, after which they quit going down as much.

    Economics argues AGAINST “insuring” everything in health care, and definitely against most routine things. Without insurers guaranteeing everything is “insured” and without employers guaranteeing that in the health benefit programs, health care and health care product providers are left with having to market to individuals paying “out of pocket” or out of health savings accounts. They, the health care providers, also have less administrative costs and burdens on what the individual pays for them self. Competing on prices the customers can afford to pay directly WILL lower costs because it will gradually change how those things are provided as well.

    Before Murdoch acquired Dow Jones, Inc., which includes the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), the WSJ provided a reasonable alternative, politically, to the print versions of the LameStreamMedia (NYTimes, WashPost, LATimes, BostGlobe, ect) as well as a news alternative to the TV venues of the LameSTreetMedia led by ABC, CBS, CNBC, CNN, MSNBC, NBC & NPR.

    After acquisition by Murdoch and the appointment of his Liberal son over Dow Jones, the WSJ gradually became, politically, a full fledged member of the LameStreamMedia on all its primary news pages. There remained a modicum of Conservative views among the editors of the WSJ opinion page, which was not a “discrepancy”. The prior owners of Dow Jones, in their agreement to sell to Murdoch, retained control of the editorial board of the WSJ opinion page.

    The rest of the paper has been on a politically slow downhill slide into the editorial arms and control of Leftists and all their political agendas.

    1. Was there ever a “Palestinian State”? No.

    2. With the Arab war against the newly independent state of Israel, the “West Bank” and the Eastern side of Jerusalem ended up in the hands of the Arab state of the Kingdom of Jordan. Gaza remained under the administration of the Arab state of Egypt. Over time, Jordan formally annexed the West Bank. Neither Jordan nor Egypt considered establishing a “Palestinian” state. Yet, neither Jordan nor Egypt assimilated the occupants of the West Bank or Gaza as citizens.

    3. During the war with Israel the states whose armies warred against Israel, and local Arab leaders, encouraged Arabs in places they could not hold to leave their villages, promising to help them in camps they’d create for “refugees”.

    4. At the end of the first Israeli-Arab war, Arabs who remained within the national boundaries of Israel were given Israeli citizenship. Arabs who remained in the West Bank and Gaza, and those that fled to those areas were not made citizens of Jordan or Egypt. The Arabs instead left, intentionally, displaced Arabs in “refugee camps” and insisted on UN funding for them. They preferred permanent Arab hostages in refugee camps, for their political war against Israel, instead of assimilating any displaced Arabs.

    5. About 1 million Jews were settled across the Middle East (outside of the “British Mandate of Palestine”) in 1948. Between 1948 and 1972 approximately 820,000 Jews were forced to flee Arab and Muslim majority countries in the Middle East; due to official harassment, pogroms, property confiscation and being officially expelled. About 200,000 made their way to Europe & North America while the rest landed in terribly insecure and impoverished Israel - but Israel took them in.

    6. There is a two state status already - Israel and Jordan. The peace agreement over the West Bank needs to be between Israel and Jordan. They need to agree on a transition period of joint administration, where a history of peace and security can be established, after which some of the West Bank would be formerly incorporated into Jordan. A similar process between Israel and Egypt needs to happen vis-a-vis Gaza. That will provide Jordan and Egypt with much responsibility for ending “Palestinian” acts of terrorism against Israel, as well as internal security in those areas. The agreements would be predicated on Egypt & Jordan’s success at carryout all their responsibilities in the West Bank and Gaza, including gradual-to-full political rights in their countries to the residents there. Israel would be permitted, by agreement, to end that process if Jordan and Egypt fail to carryout all their responsibilities.

    7. Israel today has a population that is about 20% Arab. They are citizens with all the rights of citizens, and participate in every area of business, education and government. One is a jurist who sits on the Supreme Court of Israel. Where are the 1,000 1948 Jewish residents of the Arab and Muslim states? Are they and/or their descendants similarly assimilated into the business, education and political life of those countries? No. Most no longer have even a remnant left in their once former countries. ALL the claims about Israel being a “racist” state are 180 degrees from the reality of their Arab-Muslim majority neighbors in the region. There will not be a “right of return”. The actions of the Arab-Muslim majority states in the region and the Arabs they pushed into “refugee” status have destroyed any good-will possibility of accepting that, while Israel did the opposite - made everyone in its borders, Arab or Jew citizens. Israel did its part already. It’s time the Arabs quit making impossible demands and accepted the full responsibility for the conditions created over time by their refusal to put peace above all else as their main priority.
