Does your insurance insure nothing?

What is the good of having 'insurance' that you cannot afford to use? I personally would say that it is basically just good for nothing except ripping you off, and so think others, as well as I do. Insurance where one cannot afford to pay the deductible is 'insurance' that does not actually insure. See Americans have insurance but canít afford to use it.

Ebola kills 4,000 in Africa but US has temerity to call its first “Patient Zero”

RIP Thomas Eric Duncan. Thankfully there is now some sympathetic coverage of the Ebola victim who traveled to the US from Liberia. It turns out Duncan wasn't by definition a selfish refugee who lied to immigration officers. He can hardly be tagged "patient zero" unless an outbreak can be traced to him. We have no idea whether Duncan is the only infected traveler to exit West Africa undetected.

Insurance companies in the US treat conditions that don’t need treatment while giving others no care at all

The essential absurdity of Big Business run medical care in the US can be seen in the following Reuters report... Unnecessary cancer treatment in men on the rise. Meanwhile, many people needing screening for cancer and even essential treatments for cancer will be turned away by the Big Business docs. We're living SICKO all the time in the US of A.

How European imperialism spread AIDS to the world

About 7 years ago, scientists discovered that the origins of the AIDS epidemic began in Cameroon, Africa. That info can be found here... Hunt for origin of HIV pandemic ends at chimpanzee colony in Cameroon ...This week an article in the Washington Post by Daniel Halperin, who was a senior HIV prevention adviser in the U.S. governmentís global AIDS program, posits that European imperialism spread AIDS out of Africa and eventually throughout the rest of the world. See Co≠lo≠ni≠al≠ism in Africa helped launch the HIV epidemic a century ago. Question now is, will current US imperialism done in the name of 'National Security' similarly launch new disease into the US population and into world wide populations as well? Time only will tell.

The US FDA has helped create a new Tuberculosis plague that threatens us all

In 1972, that (FDA) task force published a report acknowledging that the use of antimicrobials in food-producing animals was associated with the development of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria. Over the past several weeks, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been in the news for its stance on antibiotic use in farm animals. Yet instead of making good on its 1977 promise to limit these drugs in livestock, the agency continues to move in the opposite direction. 29954

GI quadruple amputee’s hobby: guns. Army needs a prosthetic for PTSD.

Wounded Army Specialist Brendan Marrocco was this weekend's NYT front page testimonial to the resilience of US soldiers. The VA is finally acknowledging amputee-counts apparently, so we now learn that 988 veterans have lost limbs in Iraq and Afghanistan. Specialist Marrocco lost all four, but is learning to get around. He can walk for stints of up to 15-minutes, and his favorite pastime? Shooting guns.

Dr Sanjay Gupta the US Quack General?

CNN is leaking inside information that its own TV health care pundit Sanjay Gupta is being tapped for US Surgeon General. What do you suppose Barack Obama would have in mind, to chose a Big Pharma / medical industry / insurance interest / media shill to be the American people's health care ombudsman?   Were you among those hoping that Candidate Obama was going to bring health care reform, instead of seeking out a second opinion to say we're all doing just fine? 5935

HIv horsecrap is deep

Found this recently: Genetically-Engineered Babies With HIV-Resistant Genes This kind of information is so completely vapid and devoid of information (or purposeful dis-information) it's mind numbing. As long as WE, John and Jane Q. Public, don't have a clue of what HIv really is, we'll believe anything. 2945

AIDS research has failed to find cause

"AIDS research has not failed because it never found a cure ... AIDS research has failed because it never found a cause"   Twenty four years and no cure, no cause, no answers. But billions of tax dollars to an established AID$ industry who refuse to look at the facts. More money has been spent on AIDS research than any other disease in the history of medicine, all with no results! Giving a weakened or compromised immune system a name, "AIDS", is trickery. Telling us it is caused by an old and harmless retrovirus is dishonest. But treating immunodeficiency, whatever is causing it, with toxic chemo ARV drugs, that destroy DNA and bone marrow, is criminal! It's time to get mad and get the word out and demand a reappraisal. Or accountability for the terror, stress, damage and destruction to many lives. 2735

St Baldrick patron saint of subservience

There’s a solitary reason people’s heads are shaved who have no say in the matter. Control. They are easily identified en masse, and their individuality is not only demeaned but effaced.

Oaksterdam University

California is one of 12 states wherein the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes is legal. But what happens when a cannabis patient applies for a job that requires a drug test? Surely an employer must overlook the level of THC in the blood of a legal pot user? Not so. California courts have ruled that employers are allowed to discriminate against legal stoners -- something about federal law trumping state law. Jefferson must be turning over in his grave. 2753

The Cancer Cartel at work again

I don't know how many of you are women's basketball fans, but just in case you missed last weekend's action, most of the top-ranked college teams played their games bedecked from head to toe in pink uniforms, compliments of Nike. The Think Pink initiative is a global, unified effort of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) to raise breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. More than 800 universities participated in some capacity in the event which happened to coincide with ESPN's 'February Frenzy' of games. Fans of the game were encouraged to don pink in support of the cause. 2710

I’ve cured AIDS !!!

The Cure for AIDS 1. If you are gay/str8/lesbian/trans/bi and have tested for HIv and been told you are positive for the antibodies to HIv, (using Western Blot type test which register as much as 70% false positives) or been told due to a low T-cell count or high viral load count with PCR test, you are at risk for AIDS, and that HIv is the cause ... you need to first thing, look your doctor or AIDS org. counselor in the eye and say: I'm not taking the AZT, HAART, Protease Inhibitors, chemo poison drugs that are the main regimen for treatment and that will destroy my immune system and internal organs (depending on dosage and length of time on the meds). Nor will I be a guinea pig for any new untested drugs or vaccines. Nor will I take any drugs for HIv because HIv is not cytotoxic nor can it destroy my T-cells. Over 60 known diseases cross react with the unreliable Elisa or Western Blot type HIv tests giving false positives. Don't believe the HIv=AIDS "death sentence".
