A Marijuana Bud A Day Keeps The Stroke Away (by NYBarracuda1)

'Former Heart Surgeon: While some people are on a daily dose of aspirin to lower the severity of problems after a heart attack or stroke, Allen said marijuana is a better alternative.

"Eat a bud a day will keep the stroke away," Allen said. "No other medicine made by man can help in this manner."’

Prescription Drugs Now Kill More People than Illegal Drugs

Pills Spilling out Prescription Drugs Now Kill More People than Illegal Drugs

Death by medicine is a 21st-century epidemic, and America’s “war on drugs” is clearly directed at the wrong enemy!

Prescription drugs are now killing far more people than illegal drugs, and while most major causes of preventable deaths are declining, those from prescription drug use are increasing, an analysis of recently released data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) by the Los Angeles Times revealed.

The Times analysis of 2009 death statistics, the most recent available, showed:

  • For the first time ever in the US, more people were killed by drugs than motor vehicle accidents
  • 37,485 people died from drugs, a rate fueled by overdoses on prescription pain and anxiety medications, versus 36,284 from traffic accidents
  • Drug fatalities more than doubled among teens and young adults between 2000 and 2008, and more than tripled among people aged 50 to 69

Again, these drug-induced fatalities are not being driven by illegal street drugs; the analysis found that the most commonly abused prescription drugs like OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax and Soma now cause more deaths than heroin and cocaine combined.

Natural medicine for cancer - Do not let the revolution be stopped

'For those who can look beyond the much hyped “war on cancer,” a very different kind of war is actually being fought behind the scenes, on a scale few people realize. Cancer drug sales are forecast to reach $80 billion during 2012. But its greatest competitor, natural medicine for cancer, has been silently progressing at a revolutionary pace. Over 250 early-stage clinical trials are now active and directly threaten one of Big Pharma's biggest cash cows. But make no mistake, this revolution is anything but safe. Because one just like it was put on ice almost exactly thirty years ago.

The First Natural Medicine Revolution

Public interest in natural medicine for cancer grew massively during the 1900s because of the poor performance of standard medicine. The first truly famous treatment was Essiac tea, which peaked in use during the 1920s and 30s. Then Harry Hoxsey’s therapy became known, and by 1950 he was running the largest private cancer clinic in the world. In 1958 Max Gerson published his revolutionary book “A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases,” which documented remarkable successes from his own practice. Laetrile use peaked in the 1970s, and in 1979 Linus Pauling produced stunning results using IV vitamin C for cancer.

Against this backdrop, the NCI (National Cancer Institute) started its famous Plant Screening Program in 1960. The idea was simple: collect and scientifically test plant extracts for activity against cancer. And test they did - over 114,000 extracts covering about 15,000 plant species. The results? Not a single effective cancer treatment was discovered. That is astounding because today we know that extracts from green tea, turmeric, broccoli, blackberries, pomegranates, many Chinese herbs and other plants do indeed kill cancer cells - and are now being tested in clinical trials. So the obvious question is: how on earth did the NCI miss these?’

Why Antidepressants Don't Work for Treating Depression

'Here's some depressing recent medical news: Antidepressants don’t work. What’s even more depressing is that the pharmaceutical industry and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have deliberately deceived us into believing that they DO work. As a physician, this is frightening to me. Depression is among the most common problems seen in primary-care medicine and soon will be the second leading cause of disability in this country.

The study I’m talking about was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. It found that drug companies selectively publish studies on antidepressants. They have published nearly all the studies that show benefit — but almost none of the studies that show these drugs are ineffective. (1)

That warps our view of antidepressants, leading us to think that they do work. And it has fueled the tremendous growth in the use of psychiatric medications, which are now the second leading class of drugs sold, after cholesterol-lowering drugs.

The problem is even worse than it sounds, because the positive studies hardly showed benefit in the first place. For example, 40 percent of people taking a placebo (sugar pill) got better, while only 60 percent taking the actual drug had improvement in their symptoms. Looking at it another way, 80 percent of people get better with just a placebo.’

Corporate elite determine the food we eat? (by RTAmerica)

'The corporate elite have been blamed for running America's economy into the ground. Many believe the corporate elite have invaded our political system and have the also infiltrated the food supply system. Do corporations really have that much power in the US? Mike Adams, the health ranger, tells us how this is affecting the American people.'

Cannabis oil is a highly efficient natural cancer cure

'Ever since the mid 70s, medical scientists have been well aware of the beneficial effects of cannabinoid compounds over cancerous cells. Thanks to modern science, over a dozen studies conducted during recent years have been able to partially reveal just how it works. Yet cannabis is still not endorsed by pharmaceutical companies as a cancer cure, and since it is not promoted through mainstream channels, very few people are aware of its benefits. Consequently, it is not sought after as an alternative to disfiguring chemotherapy and other harmful drugs.'

NaturalNews exposes secret vaccine industry ties and military involvement with Institute of Medicine, reveals fatal conflicts of interest at IoM

'The Institute of Medicine is suddenly in the news following the release of its vaccine “adverse events” research which found that MMR vaccines actually cause measles, seizures and anaphylactic shock. The old media predictably distorted the story and used it to deceptively announce that “vaccines are not linked to autism!”

In falsely reporting this study from the IoM, however, the old media reporters never bothered to even read the adverse reactions report. Nor did they ask a few simple questions such as “Who is funding the Institute of Medicine? And what is the agenda of the IoM?”

Today, NaturalNews publishes a stunning story about the IoM which reveals this government-created non-profit to be a key player in the military medical complex involving a shady network of weapons manufacturers, the Department of Homeland Security, top pharmaceutical companies and population control globalists such as Bill Gates. Here, we expose who’s giving the IoM money and why the actual sources of funding behind the IoM destroy any credibility it once claimed to have on the subject of public health.’

Up in smoke: "Will induce loss of any concept of time for approximately two hours. Full beneficial effects will continue for 24 hours."

A positive cannabis story! The mainstream needs to cover this more.
