Gov. Brown signs controversial assisted-suicide bill
by Los Angeles Times
October 5, 2015
Caught between conflicting moral arguments, Gov. Jerry Brown, a former Jesuit seminary student, signed a measure Monday allowing physicians to prescribe lethal doses of drugs to terminally ill patients who want to hasten their deaths.
"In the end, I was left to reflect on what I would want in the face of my own death," Brown wrote in a signing message. "I do not know what I would do if I were dying in prolonged and excruciating pain. I am certain, however, that it would be a comfort to be able to consider the options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn't deny that right to others."
GMO's Do you know what you're eating? Flounder in Tomatoes? Should food have to be labelled?
April 9, 2013
In the US and many countries there's a refusal to force manufacturers to clearly label products that use GMO's. Wheat, Corn, almost all food stocks are now GMO's and many are used as feed to animals.
Look at low chicken and pork prices in the US and what are those animals fed mostly? GMO's. When I was a kid in the 70's the news talked about vaccines being implanted into crops in Africa to help fight disease. A noble goal indeed. Instead this has turned into a vicious money game with big players like Monsanto controlling whole markets with government support. The big questions other than following the money is simply why not label foods GMO and give the public the choice? Why suppress information? Why suppress studies? Even foods labelled as Organic or with organic practices may be grown from GMO seeds.
Gluten Intolerance and the Herbicide Glyphosate: A National Epidemic
by Martin michener
August 21, 2014
Everyone has noticed the recent rise of gluten intolerance. Grocery store shelves are now lined with products which avoid using gluten in any form.
But we still have little idea why this food allergy has swept through our population to produce such widespread problems. Articles associate it with celiac disease (sprue) and leaky gut, in which undigested food proteins are allowed to enter the blood stream, causing numerous inflammatory problems. Gluten sensitive friends and family of mine have tried eating USDA organic wheat products. Some have had positive results, others still cannot tolerate gluten from any source.

Arthritis is one of the most common chronic health conditions and is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. for individuals over the age of 15.

GAO: Feds lose $80M looking for Medicaid fraud
by Kelli Kennedy
June 14, 2012
Private contractors received $102 million to review Medicaid fraud data, yet had only found about $20 million in overpayments since 2008, according to a new report by the federal government.
"Significant federal and state resources are being poured in but only limited results are coming out," said Ann Maxwell, a regional inspector general for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The audits were found to be so ineffective they were stopped or put on hold, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office. The agency studied Medicaid audits performed by 10 companies.
Free the Children
by Charles Eisenstein
October 20, 2015
I've been seeing a lot of news articles recently about parents being arrested and their children removed from their custody because they let them play unsupervised outdoors. The first thing I felt upon reading these stories was intense indignation.
Why is this happening? Why has there been this tremendous change from my own childhood, in which it was normal for us to wander far and wide, unsupervised, as young as 6 or 7? There are a few reasons. First, the decline of community. During my childhood, all the neighbors knew each other and would keep an eye on each other's kids. The boundary between home and not-home was more fluid, more gradual. The neighbor's yard or the cornfield at the end of the street was still home territory.

The oil of frankincense has been used for thousands of years to quell disease-causing inflammation, support heightened immunity, and prevent dangerous infections. But many people remain unaware of the added cancer-fighting potential of this precious serum, which researchers from the University of Leicester in the UK (among others), have confirmed through rigorous scientific testing.
