A recent study from Finland suggests that cholesterol-lowering drugs known as Statins may increase ones risk of developing the highly-preventable Type 2 diabetes by a startling 50% – even after adjusting for other factors.

By John VibesPoliticians in Puerto Rico have decided that although they will allow medical marijuana to become legal, they will still be imposing legal penalties on people who are caught smoking the plant, even if they have a prescription. While it is true that ingesting cannabis orally is far more healthy than smoking it, people should have the free choice to decide what they want to do with their own body, whether they have a prescription or not. “Smoking marijuana is not being contemplated [...]
Since 2014, there has been much pressure from activists in Australia to legalize cannabis, at least for medicinal use. Fortunately, all their hard work is beginning to bear fruit, with New South Wales introducing a trial last year in order to treat drug-resistant epilepsy, relieve chronic pain, and treat some of the many chemo-induced side effects suffered by thousands of cancer patients.

She calls herself the “Patriot Nurse,” and she is a “prepper.” Here is what she writes about herself on her website:

Many people, after prepping for some time, begin to realize their preps are covered in the food and weapons arenas, but the ‘band-aids’ area looks lean. Select individuals realize that medical preparedness is decidedly less glitzy, but it is integ [...]
