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.
Alternative treatments: Medicine or not?
by Laura Newcomer
May 15, 2014
You might not think to call a balneotherapist when your face breaks out or a reflexologist when asthma flares. But alternative medical practices, no matter how weird they might seem, are gaining traction.
Technically, "alternative" treatments are used in place of conventional medicine; when used alongside standard medical practices, alternative approaches are referred to as "complementary" medicine. The benefits (or lack of benefits) of alternative therapies are far from clear, since there have been few large-scale randomized clinical trials of them. Still, in 2008, more than 38 percent of American adults said they had used some form of alternative medicine. Here is a guide to some of those treatments:

Adjusting animals - Dixon chiropractor able to heal horses
by David Henson
December 26, 2005
A couple of years ago, Antionette Staniewicz noticed her blonde-haired quarter horse didn't saunter as vivaciously as she once did, so she called Dr. Troy Stevens to see if he could help.
Stevens, though, wasn't a veterinarian - Staniewicz had already tried that route to no avail. Instead, Stevens was her chiropractor, who she said healed her after a terrible riding accident. "I had such great success with Dr. Troy myself that I wanted to see what he could do for Barbie," Staniewicz said. As it turns out, a lot.
Actor Rob Schneider has obtained copies of CDC cover-up documents, urges California to investigate scientific fraud
by Mike Adams
June 1, 2015
The CDC whistleblower story is exploding, and despite the best efforts of the mainstream media to maintain a total media blackout on the story, the truth is spreading like wildfire across the internet and social media.
The essence of the story is that CDC scientist William Thompson has admitted to committing scientific fraud over the last ten years in conjunction with other CDC scientists. They retroactively altered study data to hide the proven fact that MMR vaccines cause a huge increase in autism risk in African-American children, and the CDC's top criminal, Dr. Julie Gerberding, orchestrated the entire fraud.
Accused Utah chiropractor takes alleged diabetes cure on the road
by Kirsten Stewart
June 5, 2013
Brandon Babcock, a Utah chiropractor accused of exploiting elderly diabetes patients, is taking his show on the road. The 37-year-old has been traveling to Idaho, Florida and Arizona and holding free seminars in hotels.
The citation is a misdemeanor offense. It's unclear what bearing it will have on his criminal case in Utah, which is set for a pretrial conference next Monday. Babcock had his chiropractic license suspended and is out on $200,000 bail awaiting trial on charges he swindled thousands of dollars from elderly Utahns with a scheme to cure their diabetes.
A mother's flu shot nightmare
by Lisa Marks Smith
January 5, 2014
Lisa Marks Smith was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is married and the mother of two sons. She is self-employed, working for Icon Beauty. Following her flu shot and near death experience in 2005, she learned about alternative therapies.
Within days of getting the shot, I knew something was wrong. I called my parents and told them to skip my son's orchestra concert on Tuesday. I wasn't feeling right and didn't want to get my Dad sick before his surgery. When I set up at a craft show with my friend Jackie on Friday night, I complained of a tickle in my throat. I woke up terribly sick the next morning. The first appointment I could get with my family practitioner was Monday. By Monday, October 24th, I felt like I was going to die.
A Head Full of Pain
January 20, 2012
It pounded away at her ear - rhythmic, loud and unrelenting. The noise was always present but seemed to get worse when she lay down or turned her head a certain way. Usually it was just annoying, but sometimes it grew so loud she had trouble hearing.
A few weeks later, she suddenly felt as if she had been hit on the left side of her head with a brick. The pain was blinding. She had to leave work to lie in a darkened room. It was probably a migraine, her doctor told her, giving her a prescription for a drug called Zomig and ordering an M.R.I. of her brain. Neither the medicine nor the scans were helpful. The headache lasted two more days. After that, the occasional migraine would come and go; the whooshing noise remained constant.
A Drug Recall That Should Frighten Us All About The FDA - Forbes
by David Maris
October 10, 2012
Pay attention, as I can't say this seriously enough. Last week, the FDA took a drug off the market, and the reasons should send shivers of fear down the backs of consumers, investors, generic drug companies - and the FDA.
The FDA announced last week that the 300mg generic version of Wellbutrin XL manufactured by Impax Laboratories and marketed by Teva Pharmaceuticals was being recalled because it did not work. And this wasn't just a problem with one batch - this is a problem that has been going on with this particular drug for four or five years, and the FDA did everything it could to ignore it. The FDA apparently approved this drug - and others like it - without testing it. The FDA just assumed if one dosage strength the drug companies submitted for approval works, then the other higher dosages work fine also. With this generic, American consumers became the FDA's guinea pigs to see if the FDA's assumption was right. It wasn't.
