Major opioid maker to pay for overdose-antidote development

A company whose prescription opioid marketing practices are being blamed for sparking the addiction and overdose crisis says it's helping to fund an effort to make a lower-cost overdose antidote.

OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma announced Wednesday that it's making a $3.4 million grant to Harm Reduction Therapeutics, a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit, to help develop a low-cost naloxone nasal spray.

The announcement comes as lawsuits from local governments blaming Purdue, based in Stamford, Connecticut, and other companies in the drug industry for using deceptive marketing practices to encourage heavy prescribing of the powerful and addictive painkillers. Last week, the number of lawsuits against the industry being overseen by a federal judge topped 1,000.

'Do not eat or sell any Honey Smacks': CDC issues nationwide warning after 30 more contract Salmonella from the Kellogg's cereal

Thirty more people have contracted Salmonella from eating Kellogg Co's Honey Smacks cereal, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has revealed.

That brings the total number to 130 cases in 36 states - 34 of whom have been hospitalized.

Health officials had thought the outbreak, which started in March, was brought under control in June when they recalled 1.3 million cases of the cereal in affected states.

But now they are warning Americans, again, to avoid the product nationwide.

How Many People are on Psychiatric Drugs?

“Antidepressants are neurotoxic, that is, they harm the brain and disrupt its functions. As a result, they cause innumerable kinds of abnormal thinking and behaviors, including mania, suicide and violence. In the process, they cause detectable damage to the brain of the child or adult, and also to the fetus of pregnant mothers who take the drug.” (Peter Breggin, MD and psychiatrist, author of Toxic Psychiatry, St. Martin’s Press)

FLASHBACK - The third-leading cause of death in US most doctors don't want you to know about

On the morning of her final day of treatment, a pharmacy technician prepared the intravenous bag, filling it with more than 20 times the recommended dose of sodium chloride. Within hours Emily was on life support and declared brain dead.

Three days later she was gone.

Sadly, Emily's case is not unique. According to a recent study by Johns Hopkins, more than 250,000 people in the United States die every year because of medical mistakes, making it the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.

Other studies report much higher figures, claiming the number of deaths from medical error to be as high as 440,000. The reason for the discrepancy is that physicians, funeral directors, coroners and medical examiners rarely note on death certificates the human errors and system failures involved. Yet death certificates are what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rely on to post statistics for deaths nationwide.

Canola oil is the margarine of yesteryear for uneducated health enthusiasts who have no idea it clogs blood and promotes dementia

What kind of food never spoils? You get one guess. That’s right – the kind you should never eat. So then why do you think most health food stores use canola oil mixed into nearly every packaged and jarred food on their shelves? The honest answer is they’re trying to make more money. Insects won’t go near canola oil – there’s a sign not to eat it right there. Its shelf life runs close to forever. Mix canola oil into salad dressings, mayonnaise, potato salad, macaroni salad, hummus, cereal, or corn chips and their shelf life extends almost indefinitely.

Plus canola oil is the cheapest “food” oil on the planet. Canola oil gets fancy, appealing labels too, like “expeller pressed” or even “certified organic,” but it wouldn’t really matter if you painted rapeseed hot pink and stamped it “grade A,” because it is what it is. Now let’s talk about what it does to the health of human beings who eat it regularly.

An Arizona developer who owes Iowa millions turned nursing homes and apartments into his cash cows, court filings allege

Alan Israel owes the people of Iowa $2 million but lives in a $1.3 million home in Paradise Valley, Arizona, the wealthiest suburb of Phoenix.

He has lived in Arizona for at least 30 years, though many of his business dealings — encompassing nursing homes, apartments and housing development — have been in Iowa.

His story, based on hundreds of filings in state and federal court, is about the intersection of commerce and health care in Iowa, and the profits that nursing homes can generate for owners whose primary business is real estate, not health care.

There are the two Keokuk nursing homes he allegedly used as a money-laundering operation, collecting $3 million in Medicaid overpayments while elderly residents complained they had been left to lay in their own urine.

Waymo's self driving minivans 'don't understand basic road features' and struggle to turn left

Waymo is still struggling to teach its self driving cars basic driving manoeuvres as it prepares to launch its self driving taxi service.

'The Waymo vans have trouble with many unprotected left turns and with merging into heavy traffic in the Phoenix area, especially on highways,' according to The Information, which says the cars have a 'Zoolander' problem similar to the Ben Stiller character in the hit film, who struggled to turn left on a catwalk.

It also says the vans 'don't understand basic road features, such as metered red and green lights that regulate the pace of cars merging onto freeways.'

Missouri becomes first state in U.S. to regulate use of the word 'meat'

On Tuesday, Missouri becomes the first state in the country to have a law on the books that prohibits food makers to use the word “meat” to refer to anything other than animal flesh.

This takes aim at manufacturers of what has been dubbed fake or non-traditional meat.

Clean meat -- also known as lab-grown meat -- is made of cultured animal tissue cells, while plant-based meat is generally from ingredients such as soy, tempeh and seitan.

The state law forbids "misrepresenting a product as meat that is not derived from harvested production livestock or poultry." Violators may be fined $1,000 and imprisoned for a year.

Vietnam Wants Monsanto to Pay for Chemical Warfare Waged by US Troops - Reports

A landmark court ruling in the United States prompted the Vietnamese government to demand compensations from Monsanto for the suffering caused by one of the company’s most notorious products.

Vietnamese authorities demand that agrochemical giant Monsanto provide compensation to the victims of Agent Orange, a harmful toxic defoliant employed by the US military during Vietnam War.

According to Vietnam News, Hanoi made its move after a jury in the US ordered Monsanto, which was purchased by Bayer earlier this year, to pay $289 million in compensation to a school groundskeeper named Dewayne Johnson, who claimed that the company’s Roundup weed-killer caused his terminal cancer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Agent Orange is most definitely NOT harmless. It is based on Dioxyn; one of the most toxic and long-lasting chemicals known. Testing of Agent Orange was done here in Hawaii and a couple students died in a lab accident at UH Manoa. There are still parts of the Big Island where testing was done that are fenced off because of the lingering toxicity.

Bayer’s Monsanto faces thousands of glyphosate cancer-risk lawsuits

The number of lawsuits against Monsanto has surged from 5,200 to 8,000 and may cost its new owner Bayer billions of dollars in damages in the coming years.

The surge in lawsuits followed the $289-million California court verdict when Monsanto was ordered to pay damages to a man who alleged the company’s glyphosate-based weed-killers, including Roundup, caused his cancer. Bayer’s shares lost more than 10 percent since then.

When asked whether Bayer would consider settling cases out of court, the company’s Chief Executive Werner Baumann said: “We will vigorously defend this case and all upcoming cases.”

Welcome To The Minority Report: Thousands Of Stores Plan Facial Recognition Use For Anti-Theft

By Aaron Kesel

Hundreds of retail stores and soon thousands are investigating using biometric facial recognition software FaceFirst to build a database of shoplifters to aid in the fight against theft, Peter Trepp CEO of FaceFirst told BuzzFeed News.

The software is called FaceFirst and is designed to scan faces as far as 50 to 100 feet away. As customers walk through a store entrance, the video camera captures repetitious images of each shopper and chooses the clearest one to store. The software then analyzes that image and compares it to a database of “bad customers” that the retailer has compiled; if there is a match, the software sends an alert to store employees that a “high risk” customer has entered the door...

THE LIST OF PRODUCTS AND FOODS THAT HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR MONSANTO’S CARCINOGENIC GLYPHOSATE

Glyphosate is so prevalent in our environment that trace amounts of it is now found in a wide variety of consumer products, including foods and personal hygiene products, in the human body, and in water supplies.

To some scientists and related officials, none of these products individually contain high enough levels of glyphosate to pose a health risk, however, others argue that consuming trace amounts leads to dangerous accumulations within the body, as it is known to bio-accumulate in major organs and bones.

10 MAJOR CONFLICTS OF INTEREST BETWEEN BIG PHARMA AND CONSUMER GOODS CORPORATIONS

One of the most popular ways of achieving a passive income is by creating and selling high-quality inexpensive products with the hope of eventually hooking consumers to expensive long-term subscriptions and services. For example, cell phone and cable companies promote unbeatable front-end deals but ultimately leave the consumer feeling frustrated with contracts they didn’t even realize they were getting themselves into. Big Pharma and other large consumer goods corporations use a similar strategy. Unassuming consumer products serve as cheap front-end items, eventually leading to chronic diseases which require future prescriptions as their expensive long-term passive income streams. Documented below are 10 harmful conflicts of interest between Big Pharma and a few of our most popular consumer goods corporations, all of which should be made illegal immediately.

Memo reveals Soros-funded social-media censorship plan Plotted with Google, Facebook to eliminate 'right wing propaganda'

On Monday, the Gateway Pundit blog noted the memo’s relationship with recent moves by Silicon Valley tech giants to “shadow ban” conservative political candidates and pundits and remove content.

The Free Beacon obtained a copy of the memo, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” by attending the retreat.

My Daughter Molested by TSA; Me Nearly Arrested for Objecting

By Daniel McAdams, executive director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.

His face darkened: “I wouldn’t like it; I don’t like it at all.”

“It’s sick what our country has become,” I added.

“It sure is,” he agreed. “But there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s policy.”

I know some who will read this will smugly scoff that I should not fly at all. But is that a solution? We go around the world bombing for “peace and democracy,” while at home middle aged women sexually assault little girls in plain sight “for our own good.” To “keep us safe.” But hey, it’s “just policy.”

THE LIST OF PRODUCTS AND FOODS THAT HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR MONSANTO’S CARCINOGENIC GLYPHOSATE

Monsanto is receiving considerable global backlash after the agrochemical and seed giant was found guilty of malice and of covering the fact that their flagship product can cause cancer.

At issue is glyphosate, the active chemical ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup and Ranger herbicides. For years, evidence has been mounting that glyphosate is carcinogenic, which is quite alarming considering that it is the most widely used (and overused) agricultural chemical ever.

“Americans have applied 1.8 million tons of glyphosate since its introduction in 1974. Worldwide, 9.4 million tons of the chemical have been sprayed onto fields. For comparison, that’s equivalent to the weight of water in more than 2,300 Olympic-size swimming pools. It’s also enough to spray nearly half a pound of Roundup on every cultivated acre of land in the world.” ~Newsweek

The jury ruled that the plaintiff, Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, developed cancer from repeated exposure to Roundup, Monsanto‘s widely used glyphosate-based weedkiller, and ordered the company to pay $289 million in damages.

The landmark jury ruling, which could open the door for roughly 4,000 similar U.S. lawsuits against Monsanto, sparked outcry around the world.

APPLE REMOVES THOUSANDS OF APPS IN COMPLIANCE WITH CHINESE GOVERNMENT

Apple has removed around 25,000 apps from its service after the Chinese government criticized the company for not doing enough to monitor content.

As the company makes further commitments to China amidst the ongoing trade war, the stakes are getting higher.

As reported by the Wall Street Journal:

U.S. companies are paying close attention to the messages they get from the Chinese government and the state media in this sensitive trade environment, said Ben Cavender, a director at China Market Research Group who focuses on consumer technology and retail.

“They are going to move very quickly to try to rectify that problem, because this is a situation where there could be a lot more backlash in the government in terms of regulations,” Mr. Cavender said.

As big tech companies move across the globe, internet regulations in the EU and China are impacting users in the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apple's deplatforming of individuals who may be opposed to certain actions of China's government, and the evaporation of views not specifically held by the Chinese government, will be quick and brutal, in Apple's desire to corner the Chinese market; even far worse than what is going on here in the US at this point in time.

This Texas Doctor Raped A Patient Who Was Heavily Sedated & Won't Go To Jail For It

Although he lost his medical license and his job, a Texas doctor who raped a patient won't face jail time. A jury sentenced Dr. Shafeeq Sheikh to 10 years of probation and a $10,000 fine Friday after convicting him of raping an incapacitated patient at Ben Taub Hospital in Houston in 2013. As a result of his conviction 46-year-old Sheikh will also have to register as a sex offender.

A female patient being treated for an acute asthma attack at Ben Taub Hospital in November 2013 reported being raped in her hospital room while under heavy sedation and tethered to machines, according to a local ABC News affiliate. The then-27-year-old woman told hospital staff and police that an unknown physician had entered her room and touched her breasts inappropriately during a chest exam. That same physician later returned to her bedside and sexually assaulted her on two other occasions during the night.

Monsanto caught colluding with EPA in Roundup cancer cover-up

Is the day we’ve all been waiting for finally on the horizon? Monsanto and the EPA have been caught red-handed in the midst of a legal controversy. Unsealed court documents have shown that not only is the EPA severely lacking in the standards department, but that the federal agency colluded with one of the nation’s most menacing companies, Monsanto. And in doing so, the EPA helped to keep Monsanto’s star product, Roundup, on store shelves and safe from being reviewed for its cancer-causing effects.

Court documents show that the EPA declared that Roundup was safe for use without ever testing the entire formulation’s effects, and instead relied on the industry testing done on just the key active ingredient, glyphosate.

Media Misses Key Detail On Recent Trump GMO/Pesticide Ban ‘Lifting’, Here’s Why

In early August, Trump’s administration released a new memo from the Fish and Wildlife Service stating that the 2014 version of the memo, out of Obama’s administration would be cancelled and the terms of the new memo would now be in place.

The memo was in reference to a GMO and neonicotinoid bans that put in place to help protect the bee population and wildlife refuges. The 2014 memo was a positive step forward as it was publicly stating, even at higher governmental levels, that GMOs were harmful to agriculture and wildlife, as were neonics. This initial memo was coined a GMO and neonics ban, even though the language in the memo doesn’t actually say that.

Before we continue, we recognize and have painstakingly covered, the dangers of neonicotinoid pesticides and GMOs on our environment and wildlife. We have called for an all-out ban, based on our research, numerous times over the last 6 years and still hold completely strong to that truth.

Dangerous 'forever chemicals' have been found in US drinking water at alarmingly high rates — here's what to know about PFAS

In the US, consumers usually assume that the water coming out of our taps has been thoroughly tested and is safe to drink.

But residents in more than 30 communities around the country have found out that's not the case.

In states including Colorado, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, and North Carolina, local water systems have been contaminated with toxic chemicals called PFAS, which stands for perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances.

This class of artificial lab-grown chemicals doesn't break down in the environment, and instead remains intact in water, air, and bodies for thousands of years, according to the Associated Press. For that reason, they've become known as "forever chemicals."

Citizen contacts Maryland Department of Health to find out why they are so keen to push the HPV jab on 11yo children, so he files a freedom of information request and discovers they've been bribed/lobbied

The nurse showed him letters from Maryland Department of Health outlining the new policy. He first contacted Dr. Jinlene Chan, who had signed the letters, she could not provide evidence to back up the need for the vaccine. He then contacted Dr. Ken Lin Tai, director of the Cancer Control and Prevention unit at the Department of Health, but she couldn't provide any evidence either. Finally he met with Dr. Howard Haft, deputy director of the Maryland Department of Health who said it was CDC, yet CDC’s policy is to not take positions on state-specific legislation.

Suspecting that there was something else going on behind the scenes, in April 2018 he filed a Public Information Act request with the Prevention and Health Promotion Administration only to discover that the Maryland health department had received $91.6 million pharma funded non-profits to promote the HPV vaccine in Maryland.
