FTC Decides to Destroy Homeopathy

The FDA is no doubt pulling the strings on this.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently issued a policy statement explaining that the agency will hold efficacy and safety claims for over-the-counter (OTC) homeopathic drugs to the same standard as claims for other OTC drugs. This means homeopathic OTC products will need to back up claims with “competent and reliable scientific evidence” for health-related claims, or else use certain FDA-approved disclaimers.

Here are some examples of acceptable disclaimers, as noted in ...

Michael Winship – Trading Politics for Medical Profits

Cash and carry has become nothing more than standard operating procedure in politics and government, and it’s wrecking the republic. The whole system is rotten to the core, corrupted by big business and special interests from the seventh son to the seventh son.

Or daughter, as we learned these past few days when the news introduced us to Heather Bresch, CEO of a drug company called Mylan and daughter of Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin III, who’s also the former governor ...

ANDREW AGHAPOUR – WHAT IF ANIMALS BELIEVE IN GOD?

Chimpanzees believe in God. This news, widely reported last week, is only a slight exaggeration. Using hidden cameras, scientists have indeed captured footage of chimpanzee behavior that resembles religious ritual.  The rocks pile up to create something resembling an altar. This “ritualized behavioral display” apparently has no evolutionary function, and instead resembles religious rituals from humanity’s archaeological past.

This isn’t the first discovery of animal behavior resembling religion. Elephants and dolphins, for example, have burial rituals for their dead.

More importantly, ...

12 Toxic Compounds Hiding In This One Thing You Use Every Single Day

There is one “necessity” in every house that most people don’t give much thought to. Certainly not to the ingredients. You probably have a favorite brand or you might switch between three or four brands; perhaps you just buy whatever is on sale, many people do. But regardless of which brand you buy or how much it costs one thing remains, it is probably full of toxic chemicals.

Would you ever consider washing your hair with formaldehyde? Anti-freeze? Or engine degreaser? ...

Miles Schneiderman – Maintaining Real Relationships in the Digital World

I use Facebook every day, multiple times a day. It’s such an automatic activity at this point that I couldn’t even guess at an exact count. With the app for my phone, I can check Facebook as easily as I check the time. When I log in, my eyes dart to the small red number in the upper right-hand corner of the screen that tells me how much attention my status updates, shared links, and photos have received. Social media ...

Dr. Gary G. Kohls – Flibanserin (Addyi), the Alleged “Libido Pill For Women”

On August 18, 2015, the FDA proudly announced that they had approved (after 2 previous rejections) a new drug whose generic name is flibanserin (Addyi will be the brand name when it comes to your local drug store in mid-October). The only drug that Sprout Pharmaceuticals has ever marketed, flibanserin is purported to treat a “disease” called hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).

The drug has been approved only for premenopausal women. The company will offer the drug in a 100 mg dose, to ...

Retreat, Renewal & Rejuvenation: A Process of Spiritual Development

Why has withdrawal always been so foundational to spiritual transformation? Why do we go on retreat?

Retreat not just physical retreats but the notion of going inwards has to do with letting go of all the surface distractions in our lives. It allows the minor irritants and frustrations that create a little static in our hearts and minds to fall away. As we let go and step away from the surface, we leave behind complexity, we turn away from our projects ...
