Doctors Get Paid to Prescribe More Opioids

Mercola Opioid addiction is at an all-time high in the U.S. — so much so, it's been identified as a significant factor in unemployment among men,1 and opioid overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under the age of 50.2 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the more than 63,600 Americans who died from drug overdoses in 2016,3,4 more than 42,000 were related specifically to opioids5 — a 28 percent jump in opioid deaths from the year before. As if that's not disturbing enough, recent research6 suggests opioid overdose deaths are being undercounted by 20 to 35 percent, due to drug omissions on death certificates.7 In many cases, the specific drug that contributed to the death isn't listed on the death certificate, and it's quite likely that many of the general "drug deaths" are actually due to opioids specifically. Paying Doctors Who Prescribe Opioids May Be a Significant Part of the Problem Dr.

Coca-Cola Caught Undermining Public Health Initiatives

Mercola Soda and other sweetened beverages have been identified as a major contributor to the obesity1,2 and diabetes epidemics around the world,3,4 and in light of the scientific evidence, many public health organizations have started recommending daily sugar limits. At least 10 countries have implemented or are working toward implementing taxes on soda in an effort to reduce consumption and improve public health. One 12-ounce can of regular soda contains on average between 8 and 10 teaspoons of sugar, far exceeding 100 percent of your recommended daily sugar allotment of 6 teaspoons (25 grams). Considering sugar is as addictive as cocaine5 and has downright toxic effects on your body when consumed in excess,6 it's no wonder obesity has become such a health crisis. Reducing the number of sugary drinks you consume each day can go a long way toward reducing your risk for metabolic dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and obesity.

Monsanto's Mind-Meld; Spin Machine in High Gear

Less than two weeks into the presidency of Donald Trump it appears we are seeing the ushering in of a new era of twisted truths, fake news, and selective science.

Is CDC Working With Coca-Cola? - 17 Highlights with LINER. By Dr. Mercola I've often written about the collusion between industry and our regulatory agencies, and how industry-funded research tends to simply support and promote the industry agenda rather than shed truthful light on the benefits or risks of any given product.

Recent media reports have now revealed devastating evidence showing a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) executive aided a Coca-Cola representative in efforts to influence World Health Organization (WHO) officials to relax recommendations on sugar limits.1 In March 2015, WHO published a new sugar guideline that specifically targeted sugary beverages, calling them out as a primary cause for childhood obesity around the world, especially in developing nations, where the soda industry is now aggressively expanding its reach.

Chemical Defense Attorney Exposes PFOA and Teflon Dangers. By Dr. Mercola. Federal study: Monsanto chemicals poisoned southern town, caused many cases of liver disease. (NaturalNews) Monsanto has a bad reputation for a wide variety of reasons, but a new federal study of their worst crime scene has provided substantial evidence of the harm this corporation is capable of producing.

Anniston, Alabama, is small town with a population of just under 23,000 people. It is also home to one of the worst examples of PCB contamination that the world has ever seen, thanks to Monsanto. The pollution from the infamous corporation's plant was so bad that it produced the largest effect on a population via a single contaminant, and Monsanto ended up having to purchase and demolish 100 PCB-contaminated homes within the area.

When science sells out. The rise in the dominance of financial and commercial interests sponsoring science on one hand, and an increasingly ideological agenda of government-funded research on the other hand, are thwarting and clouding science’s role to promote insight, innovation and progress. Decline and loss of credibility is the natural consequence when science is used as a means to advance corporate interests or to push ideological agendas. Without a change in course, this decline will endanger American scientific leadership. A recent study by the Pew Research Center in Washington showed that scientists view many important issues differently than the rest of the population. For example, 88 percent of scientists view genetically modified food as safe versus only 37 percent of the general population — a gap of 51 percent.
