    “I’m paid to dispense a little poison every day to people,” said a well-trained pharmacist recently. We began our conversation at a Treasure Coast GOP forum for candidates running for office. There was nothing new being said so I welcomed this conversation with a real American who was unafraid to tell the truth about a tragedy he sees every day. “Forty four out of every 100 middle aged white Americans are taking anti-depressants, more than 1 in 3,” he went on. When you multiply out his figure of 495 prescriptions for pills he fills every day at one corner, corporate...

    Charlie Sheen’s announcement that he is HIV positive has created a huge uproar as critics attack him from every direction, but the truth is that Charlie Sheen is simply a reflection of our society as a whole. You see, the truth is that it isn’t just big Hollywood stars that are engaged in insanely risky sexual behavior. According to the CDC, there are 110 million cases of sexually-transmitted disease in America today, and another 20 million STD cases are added to that total every year. The United States has the highest STD infection rate in the entire industrialized world, and...

    Many articles have appeared in this column questioning the conventional wisdom on matters ranging from infection control practices; to the validity of established (yet oft-changing) guidelines on diet, and “healthy” blood titers for a host of substances; to suitable blood pressure numbers. The implication is that such wisdom is subject to influence by sundry commercial and political forces. While most people are familiar with the CDC, FDA, and NIH, in many cases, so-called non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are involved. These can be trade associations such as the American Heart Association and American Medical Association, as well as consensus standard groups such...

    Veterinary Practice News ^ | 2/8/2012 | Nicholas Dodman, BVMS, Dipl. ACVB
    Owner-directed aggression in dogs has been written and talked about at length, but feline owner-directed aggression has received less attention. In dogs, “conflict aggression” has replaced “dominance aggression” as a more accurate description of the behavior’s motivation. The change occurred because pundits no longer accept the premise that the relationship between dogs and their owners is governed by pack mentality, as neither dogs in the wild nor, as it turns out, wolves seem to organize themselves along these lines. With this in mind, it seems ludicrous to discuss dominance or status-related aggression in cats, as they do not organize themselves...

    Hillary Clinton recently drew scrutiny for a claim that resurfaced in a New Hampshire breakfast on Tuesday that she once tried to join the Marines. The dubious claim, which even implicitly accused the Marines of sexism, brings to mind another case of military optics that might not have worked out the way Mrs. Clinton wanted it: A photo of her taken while shaking the hand of a soldier. The photo inevitably made the rounds in chain emails and on websites for years. But unlike some stories that seem too good to be true, and frequently turn out to be false,...

    And Republicans across the country should take note. According to all the polls leading up to last Tuesday’s gubernatorial election in Kentucky, Republican businessman Matt Bevin wasn’t supposed to have a chance. This was the same Matt Bevin who had launched a lamentably unsuccessful primary campaign last year against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and was treated by much of the press in the state (OK, technically the commonwealth) as a loose cannon who couldn’t be taken seriously. But Mr. Bevin pounded away at ObamaCare. And if you’re wondering why, since that’s ostensibly a national issue, you might recall that...

    Many concerned Americans are following the battle in Congress to defund Planned Parenthood, spurred by videos released over the summer by the Center for Medical Progress allegedly showing the organization selling the pieces of aborted babies. However, even if the abortion organization loses its funding from the federal budget, many tax payers will still be supporting it with their hard-earned dollars. Because along with the money they get from the from the federal budget, Planned Parenthood receives money from Obamacare and from state coffers.

    Because all progressives are fascist statists at heart. Back when Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, she realized that only the elimination of what she called “the mongrel peoples” would allow her to achieve her statist goals. Her organization was designed with population control in mind and those who didn’t measure up were to be ‘bred out’ of the population. Since then, progressives have done everything they can to pretend she’s a saint who wanted nothing more than to further women’s reproductive rights but, deep down, their totalitarian instincts still trend toward population control. These days, of course, it’s in the...

    It’s strange that liberal apologists for murder and their cohorts, the nation’s media freaks, never mention that two lives are affected by abortion, not just one. The first of these lives is snuffed out by the cold, mean hands of abortionists as they burn a baby’s brain with a saline bath. Another young life ends when her skull is crushed with forceps, yet another when a needle is rammed through his tiny brain. These little human beings did nothing to cause this horror. “He’s still alive,” one abortionist’s assistant said when she noticed a little baby boy had survived the...

But now, a possible novel answer to organ shortage has arrived: 3D printing of substitute organs. Numerous measures have been implemented to widen the pool of organ donors all across the U.S. Interventions to address the problem of organ shortage include national programs to heighten deceased donor donation, paired donor exchanges and split organ donation, among many others. Actions to hasten public awareness, enhance efficiency of donation mechanism and standardize donation policies have resulted in remarkable rates of...

    Super. Thanks, Mitt. From the very beginning, Mitt Romneys campaign was hit with two main lines of attack. The first was that he was a flip-flopper whod tried to have it both ways on virtually every issue. The second was that he created RomneyCare - the blueprint for ObamaCare - and seemed pretty pleased with himself for doing so. Sane people everywhere asked Why would you run a candidate like Romney, who cant mount a successful attack against ObamaCare, when its your number one campaign issue. Of course, we all know how things turned out. Romney continued to call for...

    A brief video suggests there may be something to the theory that Hillary Clinton is dealing with the early stages of Multiple Sclerosis. In a late summer article, the National Enquirer theorized that Clinton might have suffered at least two strokes and be afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) which is a disease that inflicts serious damage to the nervous system. MS scrambles messages sent from one part of the brain to another. Normal functioning can at times become uncontrolled and responses to various day to day situations can become highly emotional, inappropriate and manifest without regard for actual circumstances.

And, this is followed-up the very next day with Congress questions the science behind dietary guidelines. It seems to me that the government is finally beginning to walk back the disastrous low-fat dietary recommendations, that originated officially with the McGovern Committee (1977), but also bear the handiwork of physiologist/nutritionist Ancel Keys and rabid anti-fat nutritionist D.

One group in particular that could benefit is the medical community, thanks to a recent development by scientists that could make it easier to print organs from living tissue. How? By printing structures inside of special gel that provides support during the build process. New Scientist reports that researchers from the University of Florida in Gainesville came to the breakthrough method while searching for a way to enable the printing of items that cannot support their own weight. The technique prints objects inside a...

    Researchers have successfully created a new test that could eliminate the need for needles in testing for viruses and dramatically increase the success rate of doctors trying to diagnose an illness. Its called ViroCap, and while the test is not ready for use in patients just yet, it has passed a big clinical trial that is paving the way for its eventual entry into the market, according to a UPI report. ViroCap supposedly can detect any virus known to man and animals and it could help doctors who dont know what theyre looking for spot a virus...

    Where did this headline come from, you may ask. All in good time, my little pretty. All in good time. We must start with the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, coming out of the United Nations. A few months ago, this column examined the dubious and somewhat contradictory notion of sustainability, shortened from the original 1987 version sustainable development. The best working definition of this term, which is then invoked countless times in hundreds of documents, is Sustainability calls for a decent standard of living for everyone today without compromising the needs of future generations. Good luck finding any further clarification...

    There is no such thing as free care. Someone else must pay for it either through higher taxes, non-use of services, confiscatory premiums, writing-off costs, government subsidies, or denial of needed services, rationing When the government promises too much free medical care to too many people without making a significant investment in the medical infrastructure, its staff, and its professional delivery, innocent victims of a shortchanged, diluted, and inefficient service are likely to emerge. And the victims will suffer in silence physically or financially, paying for much reduced or unaffordable healthcare. Add to the poorly planned mix an enormously expensive...

    A BRITISH pensioner has become the first person to undergo revolutionary eye surgery aimed at curing blindness in millions of people. The 60-year-old woman, who had severely impaired sight and was in danger of going blind, is said to have had no complications so far following the three-hour operation last month. The surgical team hopes to determine how successful the treatment was by early December. The woman has asked to remain anonymous. The scientists behind the pioneering procedure hope it will dramatically transform lives, allowing the blind to recognise faces of loved ones again and regain the ability to carry...

    "Islamophobia" is a mental disorder evidenced by an insufficient understanding of Islam as the religion of peace. In the Age of Obama, Congress decreed that Islamophobia is a federal crime.A few Republican extremists fought against the decree, but bipartisan majorities of both houses passed the bill. Obama signed it into law. The courts have thus far been lenient, merely sending offenders for psychiatric treatment. When certified as cured, they can be freed. Those who decline treatment are to be jailed indefinitely, as are those who can't be cured.Sally Snookums, a cute teenage girl, went for a stroll down Mainstreet. She...

    In Brief Japanese researchers have successfully grown kidneys from stem cells that worked as they were supposed to after being transplanted into rats and pigs. The Breakthrough With all the parts, grown, the kidney was placed inside a rat, then the pathway was added, followed by the bladder theyd grownthe new bladder was then connected to the rats native bladder. After sewing up the rat, they found the whole system worked. The team then repeated what they had done with a much larger animal, one much closer in size to humansa pigand found the same results. The paper was published...

    C'mon folks, this isn't complicated. Hill used Indian government data on the cost of pharmaceutical ingredients and allowed for a 50-percent profit margin - but no money for investment in research - to work out the costs of producing certain drugs. On this basis, he found that Novartis' leukaemia drug Glivec actually cost $159 for a year's treatment, against the $106,000 charged in the United States. Roche's Tarceva for lung cancer cost $236, against a U.S. price of $79,000, and Novartis' Tykerb cost $4,000 against a price of $74,000. In all these cases the U.S. cost was far above that...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) maintains that she abhors abortion and defended federal funding for Planned Parenthood as "the surest path toward reducing its frequency in the future." "Each birth raises the population total," Pelosi said. "The more babies that are aborted today, the fewer we will have to abort in the future. By holding down the population now, we avert the burden of having to fund even more abortions in the next generation." The Congresswoman contrasted "my long view with the short-sightedness of today's knee-jerk opponents of sensible population control. I mean, isn't it obvious that a future...

    As the vital relationship between 3D printing and medical science continues to flourish, potentially life-altering developments continue to be made. A national team of researchers has developed a first-of-its-kind, 3D-printed guide that helps regrow both the sensory and motor functions of complex nerves after injury. The groundbreaking research, undertaken in Minnesota, has the potential to help more than 200,000 people annually who experience nerve injuries or disease. Nerve regeneration is a complex process. Because of this complexity, regrowth of nerves after injury or disease is very rare, according to the Mayo Clinic. Nerve damage is often permanent. While the peripheral...

    Color me stunned, but I do believe Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) just admitted to hating abortion. Not that it will have any impact on the way she votes on the matter, but the Democratic House minority leader admitted that we all hate abortion during her weekly press briefing on Thursday. After accusing Republicans of a lack of respect for women because they dont believe in family planning, Pelosi employed the Royal We:Ive neveryou know, as a mom and a grandmother and all the rest, I respect peoples view on subjectsbut I cannot understand why, if you abhor and you view...
