Post Date: 2019-11-30 03:30:02 by Deckard
For years, those who have been following and even participating in the benefits of psilocybin have understood and read about the ability of magic mushrooms to combat a number of ailments.

AmericaÂ’s Largest Health Insurer Is Giving Apartments to Homeless People
Post Date: 2019-11-07 11:31:38 by Anthem
In 1986, Congress enacted a law to bar hospitals from turning away patients who are unable to pay. Any hospital with an emergency room that participates in federal health programs must evaluate and stabilize every patient who comes through the door, including those who are uninsured, indigent, addicted to drugs, or mentally ill. No institution has a similar obligation to ensure that those people have a safe place to sleep. As a society, weve effectively decided that people shouldnt die on the street, but its acceptable for them to live there. There are more than half a million homeless in the U.S., about a third of them unshelteredthat is, living on streets, under ...

Ive been on some form of low-carb diet since the 1990s. If not for a few years of intense martial arts training and that dietary switch, I would have likely ended up with type-II diabetes. And well on my way to the grave. I know, some of you are thinking, Mores the pity. Fair enough. But, the truth is that once my wife and I started down that path and our health rapidly improved there was no going back. I clearly remember an early article in, of all places, the Gainesville Sun talking about how butter may not be bad for you. That planted a seed and things went from there. We started with Dr. Atkins.

Post Date: 2019-10-01 07:50:31 by Gatlin

Over more than 20 years of monitoring, participants were asked every four years about their weight and, among other things, how often, ...

Post Date: 2019-07-29 06:20:19 by Deckard
For years, weve warned that Big Pharmas business model is a repeat business racket that profits from sickness and disease.

Study: FDA is responsible for up to 73 million deaths since 2005
Post Date: 2019-05-22 07:29:21 by Deckard
In the field of medicine, the Food and Drug Administration is the most influential organization in the world. Many nations look to the FDA for leadership and advice.

Many leading experts in the food and healthcare industry agree: the FDA is responsible for an immeasurable amount of pain and suffering world-wide. According to the FDA, around 862,000 people have died because of FDA-approved drugs, vaccines, and devices since 2005. However, also according to the FDA, their statistics are definitely far from accurate. A former FDA Commissioner even admitted to underreporting numbers by ...

That's truebut that's largely because the type of people who skip breakfast are also the ...
