(NaturalHealth365) by: From the common aspirin to chemotherapy, the drugs used to treat a variety of conditions can (in many cases) cause hearing loss and balance problems for the patient taking them, adding to concerns over whether certain pills do more harm than good.
Unfortunately, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), by the time hearing damage caused by these drugs is realized, it can be too late to avoid permanent damage. →
(Natural News) Almost every major class of prescription drug raises your risk of developing Type-2 diabetes. Taking statins, antihypertensives, immunosuppressants, antipsychotics, antiretrovirals, and/or corticosteroids increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus. Now researchers find that prostate drugs also play a role in the development of Type-2 diabetes. Their research was published in the British Medical Journal. →
(NaturalHealth365) A staggering 70 percent of children and 40 percent of adults take antibiotics – every year. They are also given to literally billions of animals that are used for food. But, here’s the real shocker: the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that “30 percent of all antibiotics prescribed in outpatient clinics are unnecessary.”
And, while proper use of certain antibiotics may offer benefits, over 10 percent of users report experiencing adverse antibiotic side effects. In some cases, the use of antibiotics has led to long term health issues and even fatalities.
You may have heard last year about Bayer Merging with the GMOs giant, Monsanto. But did you know that Bayer has been involved in some of the darkest cover-ups in recent history ?
Bayer’s Role in the Holocaust
To many people the Holocaust and Third Reich have become synonymous with World War II. Among the many crimes against humanity, perhaps the most renown horrors were the mass executions that took place in the extermination camps sprinkled throughout Europe. Auscwhitz is undoubtedly the most famous of them all, known for their quickness to execute prisoners and resident doctor, Josef Mengele. Wanting to better understand the human body and particularly the nuances of heredity, Mengele became infamous for his experiments that included injecting dye in to children’s eyeballs and repeated x-rays on the reproductive organs, to see if he could make prisoners infertile. By better understanding the reproductive process, Mengele wanted to propel the growth of the Aryan race while sterilizing the “undesirables”- the handicapped, gypsies and those of the Jewish race.
(Natural News) CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of many cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD is one of the most researched cannabinoid compounds, along with THC (or, tetrahydrocannabinol). While THC does have medicinal value, it is primarily known for its psychoactive effects. Conversely, CBD is not psychoactive and is famous for its myriad of health benefits and medicinal uses. Research has shown that CBD can be used to treat a variety of diseases and conditions, ranging from seizure disorders to depression.
(Natural News) Living with depression is so challenging that many people are drawn to the idea of a “quick fix” in the form of antidepressants. Although their efficacy is questionable at best, there are two other big reasons that many patients ultimately decide against taking them: they’re expensive and have a host of dangerous side effects. However, studies are increasingly pointing to a worthy natural alternative in the form of magnesium.
(NaturalHealth365) You’ve probably noticed the push from doctors – every year – for people to get the flu shot. And, to be blunt, this is a very bad idea, as you’ll soon see.
For example, there is little evidence that they actually work to any significant degree. In fact, in 2010, PLoS Medicine published an analysis of Canadian epidemiological studies suggesting that people, who had received a seasonal influenza shot the year before the 2009 H1N1 swine flu pandemic, actually had an increased risk of being infected with the pandemic swine flu.
