Kidney Cancer Often Goes Unnoticed. Kidney cancer is one of the most common forms of…
Well, now we’ve found out that Tamiflu was more or less useless, does it cross anyone’s mind to wonder if all those expensive much-hyped ‘antidepressants’ do what it says on the box?
Given the drug companies’ efforts to hide their own research, it might be wise to be suspicious.

It’s a boring drug to make boring people less bothered about being boring.

Drugs are a waste of time.
They destroy your memory and your self-respect and everything that goes along with your self esteem.
( Kurt Cobain )
Whether you sniff it, smoke it, eat it, or shove it up your ass, the result is the same.
( William S. Burroughs )
Imagine a society that subjects people to conditions that make them terribly unhappy, then gives them the drugs to take away their unhappiness.
It is already happening to some extent in our own society.
Instead of removing the conditions that make people depressed, modern society gives them antidepressant drugs.
In effect antidepressants are a means of modifying an individual’s internal state in such a way as to enable him to tolerate social conditions that he would otherwise find intolerable.
( Theodore Kaczynski )
A drug is not bad.
A drug is a chemical compound.
The problem comes in when people who take drugs treat them like a license to behave like an asshole.
( Frank Zappa )
People use drugs, legal and illegal, because their lives are intolerably painful or dull.
They hate their work and find no rest in their leisure.
They are estranged from their families and their neighbours.
It should tell us something that in healthy societies drug use is celebrative, convivial, and occasional, whereas among us it is lonely, shameful, and addictive.
We need drugs, apparently, because we have lost each other.
( Wendell Berry )
I loved when Bush came out and said, ‘We are losing the war against drugs.’
You know what that implies?
There’s a war being fought, and the people on drugs are winning it.
( Bill Hicks )
Drug misuse is not a disease, it is a decision, like the decision to step out in front of a moving car.
You would call that not a disease but an error of judgment.
( Philip K. Dick )
It is impossible to understand addiction without asking what relief the addict finds, or hopes to find, in the drug or the addictive behaviour.
( Gabor Maté )
Disease is the biggest money maker in our economy.
( John H. Tobe )
I don’t do drugs.
If I want a rush I just stand up when I’m not expecting it.
( Dylan Moran )
I think that everything should be made available to everybody, and I mean LSD, cocaine, codeine, grass, opium, the works.
Nothing on earth available to any man should be confiscated and made unlawful by other men in more seemingly powerful and advantageous positions.
( Charles Bukowski )
Let us declare Nature to be legitimate.
The notion of illegal plants is obnoxious and ridiculous in the first place.
( Terence McKenna )
To demand that a person pee in a cup whenever you wish him to, without a documented reason to suspect that he has been using an illegal drug, is intolerable in our republic.
You are saying to him, ‘I wonder if you are not behaving in a way that I approve of. Convince me that you indeed are’.

Self-pity is the most destructive of all narcotics.

Imagine trying to live without air.
Now imagine something worse.

Cocaine is God’s way of telling you you are making too much money.

Vaccines are the backbone of the entire pharmaceutical industry.
The vaccinated children become customers for life.

In her glamorous quest for the darkest light and the lowest high, she now found herself wallowing on the bottom of a filthy garbage bin.

Health Warning .. Too much fruit causes good health.
Is Dyslexia An Excuse?
I doubt there has ever been a society so easily fooled by pseudo-science and quackery as ours is.
Millions of healthy people take happy pills that do them obvious harm, and are increasingly correlated with inexplicable suicide and worse.
Legions of healthy children are drugged into numbness because they fidget during boring lessons, and countless people are persuaded that they or their children suffer from a supposed disease called ‘dyslexia’, even though there is no evidence at all that it exists.
A few weeks ago I rejoiced at the first major cracks in this great towering dam of lies.
Dr Richard Saul brought out his courageous and overdue book, ADHD Does Not Exist.
I also urge everyone to read James Davie’s book Cracked, on the inflated claims of psychiatry since it sold its soul to the pill-makers.
Now comes The Dyslexia Debate, published yesterday, a rigorous study of this alleged ailment by two distinguished academics – Professor Julian Elliott of Durham University, and Professor Elena Grigorenko of Yale University.
Their book makes several points.
There is no clear definition of what ‘dyslexia’ is.
There is no objective diagnosis of it.
Nobody can agree on how many people suffer from it.
The wide-spread belief that it is linked with high intelligence does not stand up to analysis.
And, as Parliament’s Select Committee on Science and Technology said in 2009, ‘There is no convincing evidence that if a child with dyslexia is not labelled as dyslexic, but receives full support for his or her reading difficulty, that the child will do any worse than a child who is labelled dyslexic and then receives special help.’

The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.

Eating More Protein Cuts The Risk Of Having A Stroke.
In a study, those eating most protein were 20% less likely to have a stroke than those on the lowest levels.
Dr Xinfeng Liu, of Nanjing University in China, said, “The evidence is compelling.”

Red Wine Really Does Stop Heart Attacks.
A leading doctor says red wine really does stop heart attacks after prescribing two glasses a day to 10,000 patients.
Dr William McCrea has been advising coronary heart disease patients to drink a 125ml glass of red wine each morning and another at night for 10 years.
The cardiologist claims the antioxidants in the drink have slashed the risk of a second heart attack in his patients by half and cut the risk of a stroke by 20%.
He recommends Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile and Pinot Noir from South Africa.
Younger wines with screw tops are better because older vintages lose antioxidants in the barrel and cork tops absorb them.
