Americans Are Dying Younger, Saving Corporations Billions
by John Tozzi
August 8, 2017
Steady improvements in American life expectancy have stalled, and more Americans are dying at younger ages. But for companies straining under the burden of their pension obligations, the distressing trend could have a grim upside.
If people don't end up living as long as they were projected to just a few years ago, their employers ultimately won't have to pay them as much in pension and other lifelong retirement benefits. In 2015, the American death rate-the age-adjusted share of Americans dying-rose slightly for the first time since 1999. And over the last two years, at least 12 large companies, from Verizon to General Motors, have said recent slips in mortality improvement have led them to reduce their estimates for how much they could owe retirees by upward of a combined $9.7 billion, according to a Bloomberg analysis of company filings.
What science tells us about the safety of genetically modified foods
by John Timmer
October 4, 2013
Many aspects of modern technology make people a bit uneasy, but genetically modified foods may be in a class by themselves. Labs all around the world make genetic modifications of organisms-bacteria, plants, and animals-365 days a year.
And some of the results of that work have been ingested by humans for years, often in the form of life-saving drugs. But genetically modified crops remain controversial around the globe, and while they're commonly used in the US, they have almost no presence in the European market. The worries about GMO foods largely focus on their safety, but much of the debate ignores the extensive studies that have been done to understand both the potential risks and what we've learned about them. In response to this perceived gap in understanding, a group of Italian scientists have now performed a comprehensive review of the scientific literature on GMO crops (we were made aware of the review by Real Clear Science). The results suggest that GMO crops are safe for us, but there are some remaining concerns about their environmental impact that need to be nailed down. In the meantime, the authors suggest that GMOs represent a serious challenge for science communication with the public.
Unapproved but Effective Cancer Cures
by John P. Thomas
September 2, 2016
Conventional physicians want us to believe that there are only three treatments for cancer - surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. In fact, allopathic physicians have exclusively use these three approaches for the past 100 years.
Even though it is clear that even the US government admits that radiation and chemo both cause cancer, these therapies continue to be used with little concern about the new cancers that they cause. The conventional cancer treatment system and the pharmaceutical companies that control it are dedicated to limiting the development of all other forms of cancer treatment. They have a chokehold on the development of alternative treatments, and they ruthlessly work together with the US FDA and various US government cancer research funding agencies to prevent new treatments from being approved for use by physicians. The reason is that most alternative cancer treatments are much less expensive than surgery, radiation, and chemo. They are also more effective and have many fewer (if any) unwanted side effects.

Physicists in Arizona State University have designed a revolutionary laser technique which can destroy viruses and bacteria such as AIDS.
The research, published on Thursday November 1 in the Institute of Physics' Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, discusses how pulses from an infrared laser can be fine-tuned to discriminate between problem microorganisms and human cells.
Why American Apples Just Got Banned In Europe
by Joe Martino
April 29, 2014
Have you ever heard of DPA, also called diphenylamine? This is a chemical used widely on apples after they have been harvested. DPA is used to prevent what the industry calls storage scald -brown spots that appear on the fruit.
As a result of tests done in 2010 by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) which found 80% of apples on US produce shelves contain on average 0.42 ppm of DPA, Europe will be cutting its imports unless DPA numbers can drastically reduce. How will North Americans respond though? With there being 4 times more DPA than what's allowable in Europe, American standards seem much more lenient and the care taken to protect citizens from hazardous chemicals is not as strict a priority.
Brandon chiropractor reveals dark secret in book
by Jill Meier
December 30, 2011
The words were the actual thoughts of a young boy, David Ward, contemplating suicide in the mid-1970s. A variety of emotional incidents â€“ his fatherâ€™s unexpected death and ongoing bullying - led him to those life-ending actions.
Later in the book, Ward tells how God's intervention stopped him from climbing the tower that day to end his life. Now, nearly four decades later, Ward shares his emotional story and powerful message in a 79-page book, “A Life Almost Wasted." Dr. Ward said he initially felt God's calling to share his story about six years ago.
Infantile colic could be the cause of a baby's crying
by Jessie Moniz
April 12, 2011
There are some babies who are as good as gold and spend all day cooing and smiling at people, and then there are those others the ones that cry from day one, for months on end.
Infantile colic is defined as babies under three months old crying for more than three hours a day. Doctors are still out on the cause of colic. Some people attribute it to gas, undeveloped intestines, a food allergy or just general disposition. Some researchers are now looking at the possibility that the baby's back and spine may be part of the problem.
Chiropractor refutes approaches to ADHD
by Jessica Cohen
June 17, 2011
Doctors nowadays would likely diagnose Einstein with attention deficit disorder, chiropractor Dr. Susan Cunico told a small group of parents, mostly mothers, assembled at Belle Reve senior facility in Milford.
The symptoms include "constant talking, inattention, fidgeting, and blurting out," said Cunico, who practices in Sandyston, N.J. But many children who have those symptoms are quite bright and symptoms can have varied causes, she said. In fact, they may fall within the spectrum of normal childhood behavior.
8 Health WARNINGS Your Fingernails May Be Sending
by Jesse Cannone
May 29, 2014
Fingernails and disease don't go together in most minds... but they should. Your fingernails can give you valuable health warnings and signal the presence of serious disease.
Take a good long look at your nails. Hold a hand level with your nose about a foot out from your face and scrutinize each one. Look at the curves, dips, ridges, and grooves. Check out how thick or thin they are and if your nails are chipped or broken. Make a note of the color of the nail itself, the skin under it, and the skin around the nail.
