You Think Beauty Is Skin Deep? You're Not A Chiropractor
by Scott Hensley
August 2, 2012
For a time, posture contests were all the rage. They gave chiropractors a public relations boost when the profession was fighting for respect. The pageants helped build goodwill and support for licensure, a chiropractic historian says.
Hug says the contests date to the 1920s, but they became the rage during the '50s and '60s. Contestants were typically judged on beauty and poise, posture, and X-rays to evaluate their spinal structure. "In those days, nobody was concerned about radiation," Hug says.
Dangerously 'D-ficient': Low vitamin D raises your risk of dementia
by Tony Dearing

The "D" in vitamin D doesn't stand for dementia. Or does it? We know that many older adults don't get enough vitamin D, and that's a problem. It can leave your bones brittle and more easily broken if you slip and fall.
What we didn't know, until now, is that a lack of vitamin D may be every bit as bad for your brain as it is for your body. According to a spate of recent studies, people age 60 and older who have low levels of vitamin D are significantly more apt to suffer cognitive decline.
Cancer and Kids: Is Medical Marijuana the Answer?
by Ryan David Brown

Sierra Riddle hands a vape pen to her son, 7-year-old Landon Riddle, on July 10. Landon was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia as a toddler and became the youngest patient in the United States to receive a medical marijuana card.
When Sierra Riddle stormed into the conference room at Denver's child protective services office, the director of the agency was seated there, along with her son's team of doctors, top administrators from the Children's Hospital Colorado oncology department and lawyers. She recalls looking one of the physicians in the eye, defiant. "I'm done with this shit," she remembers saying. "I'm done with you guys bullying us."
Women in Weed: How Legal Marijuana Could Be the First Billion-Dollar Industry Not Dominated by Men
August 28, 2015
It seems fitting that a plant called Mary Jane could smash the patriarchy. After all, only female marijuana flowers produce cannabinoids like the potent THC chemical that gets users buzzed.
Pot farmers strive to keep all their crops female through flowering female clones of one plant, called the Mother. And women are moving into the pot business so quickly that they could make it the first billion-dollar industry that isn't dominated by men.

Discover the lost remedies used by our ancestors for centuries. And I'm not talking about rare and complicated insights that only a botanist knows.

Wild lettuce can be found growing freely in various regions of the world including Australia, America, Southern Europe and India. Lactuca virosa has yellow flowers and can grow to be 2 meters tall. The name of the plant stems from its "milk-juice" (lactuca) and from the word poisonous (virosa). The milky sap is bitter, and has a narcotic smell.

by Kristin Callahan
March 6, 2013
Walk into a chiropractor's office and you will see necks, backs and ankles being cracked - and, increasingly, some of them will belong to children.
With the demand for complementary and alternative treatment increasing, more people are considering the use of chiropractic care for children and newborns. In fact, it is the most common type of complementary and alternative care for children, according to a study done by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in 2010. The study showed an estimated 86 million pediatric visits were made to chiropractors throughout the United States, Canada and Europe in 2007, the most recent data available.

Man-Made Drought: A Guide To California's Water Wars
by Rep. Devin Nunes
June 12, 2015
For decades, extreme environmentalists have tried to remove 1.3 million acres of California farmland from production by depriving farmers of water.
From Merced all the way down to Bakersfield, and on the entire west side of the Valley as well as part of the east side, productive agriculture would end and the land would return to some ideal state of nature. I was stunned by the vicious audacity of their goal - and I quickly learned how dedicated they were to realizing it. Much of the media and many politicians blame the San Joaquin Valley's water shortage on drought, but that is merely an aggravating factor. From my experience representing California's agricultural heartland, I know that our water crisis is not an unfortunate natural occurrence; it is the intended result of a long-term campaign waged by radical environmentalists who resorted to political pressure as well as profuse lawsuits.
BABY GOT BACK: So, time for a spinal adjustment right after birth
by Tory Shepherd
July 20, 2012
Chiropractic care is an alternative medicine based on the belief that "subluxations" in the spine cause a range of ailments, which can be treated by manipulating the spine.
"Immediately after birth, Chirochild practitioners are qualified to assess the nerves, muscles and joints of all babies. After living in a cramped uterus, and the trauma of vaginal and caesarean deliveries, newborn checks are sought by more and more people." Sydney's Family First Chiropractic even believes babies can benefit before they are born, by ensuring mothers are free from subluxations.

News-Medical in Medical Study News
December 13, 2004
A new study of back pain treatments, co-ordinated by researchers at the University of York, has found that spinal manipulation, in the form of chiropractic, osteopathy, or manipulative physiotherapy, followed by a programme of exercise, provides significa
The study, backed by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and co-ordinated by the Trials Unit in the University's Department of Health Sciences, is the biggest of its type ever mounted in the United Kingdom. It involved more than 1,300 patients in 140 GP practices across the UK. The UK Back pain Exercise And Manipulation (UK BEAM) randomised trial assessed the effectiveness of adding different treatments to 'best care' in general practice for patients with lower back pain, one of the most common ailments general practitioners have to treat.
