Why Big Pharma is Opposed to Medical Marijuana and Decriminalization of Pot

For decades pharmaceutical companies have been supporters of keeping cannabis illegal in the US, even preventing medical research with cannabis, while aggressively developing synthetic (fake) versions of compounds found and extracted naturally from cannabis. Many are known as cannabinoids, increasingly today referred to as CBDs. There is clear if not overwhelming evidence these compounds have significant benefits in treating a variety of diseases.

Scientists: Human Population Growth is a Disease and Ebola is Earth’s Immune Response

The emergence of AIDS, Ebola, and any number of other rain forest agents may be a response by the Earth to the destruction of its tropical biosphere. In a sense, the earth is mounting an immune response against the explosion in numbers of humans. If you haven't yet read The Hot Zone, a non-fiction book published in 1994 by Richard Preston, you're way behind the curve on the truth about Ebola.

Lose Your Belly Fat Now – It Literally is Killing You

Weight loss with the reduction of abdominal fat mass almost invariably reverses insulin resistance as a consequence of chronic excessive energy intake in relation to physical activity levels. Weight loss, the macronutrient composition of the respective diet, aerobic exercise, and resistance training all appear to improve insulin resistance, by distinct mechanisms.

Each Time McDonald’s Sells a Big Mac, We’re Out $7

The average retail price of a Big Mac in the United States is $4.56, but that’s just a fraction of the actual cost. When we add in all the hidden, externalized expenses of meat production, the full burden on society is a hefty $12.00 per sandwich. The extra $7.44 above the retail price is borne by American taxpayers and consumers. In other words, rich or poor, omnivore or herbivore, you incur a share of the hidden costs of each and every Big Mac sold in this country.

Class Action Lawyers Who Sued Big Tobacco are Suing Junk Food Giants

While not a fan of litigation lawyers, I believe suing junk food manufacturers holds valuable promise and is necessary. The least expensive way to materially improve healthcare is by reducing consumption of junk food (minimal nutrient value as a ratio to calories). Health warning labeling on processsed foods as emerged on cigarettes after litigation could improve public health.

Low Testosterone – Health Implications and Natural Remedies for Low T

If a man’s energy, drive and ambition have tanked along with his love life, increasing low testosterone — or what some doctors call "low T" — is only half the battle. Testosterone alone is not enough. There's another piece to the puzzle that most guys — and doctors — miss. Adding that extra piece gives a man more than just a temporary bump in energy. It gives him the kind of swagger most men can only wish for and restores vibrant life rejuvenating energy.

Shrooms With a Brew

It was Spring ’09 and we were fourth years at UC Berkeley. Both of us had offers in corporate America. Investment banking and consulting seemed to be the futures waiting for us after graduation. All that changed one day after listening to a lecture in one of our business ethics courses when we first heard about the idea that gourmet mushrooms can be grown entirely on recycled coffee grounds.

Water, Your Most Essential Nutrient

Talk about essential nutrients - there is no more an essential nutrient than water. Your body depends on clean water to perform its daily functions, such as digestion, temperature and blood regulation, respiration, and detoxification. In particular, your body’s ability to flush out toxins and properly assimilate nutrients depends heavily on an abundant intake of clean, chemical free water. The more stress, toxins, and pollutants your body battles with each day, the more water it needs.
