Dr Mercola posted a health tip

"Before taking any medication, ask yourself this fundamental question: do the benefits outweigh the risks?" I thought of another you could ask, "Is there a food or herb that has the same or a similar action WITHOUT the down sides?" Or yet another, even better one, "What lifestyle change would I have to effect to not have the problem?" OR you could even go the whole... hog and ask, "Am I willing to sacrifice my money and potentially my life to drug side effects by giving drug companies control over my health, or lack of it, or am I prepared to take responsibility for my own health and educate myself and alter my lifestyle to attain optimal health?"

I know, pretty heavy for pre 7:00am on a Saturday morning.

But you know what?

The people you leave behind think that your premature death is pretty heavy too.

Your call.


Here's another reason to fully inform yourself of the dangers of vaccination that your doctor may fail to tell you http://iansvoice.org/default.aspx

50 bucks is 50 bucks!

Buddy and his wife Edna went to the state fair every year and every year Buddy would say, "Edna, I'd like to ride in that helicopter."

Edna always replied, "I know Buddy, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"

One year Buddy and Edna went to the fair, and Buddy said, "Edna, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance!"

To this, Edna replied, "Buddy that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"

The pilot overheard the couple and said, "Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don't say a word I won't charge you a penny! But if you say one word it's fifty dollars."

Buddy and Edna agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word...

When they landed, the pilot turned to Buddy and said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!"

Buddy replied, "Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Edna fell out, but you know, fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"

During the early hours of August 1st, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a complex global disturbance on the Earth-facing side of the sun. Most of the sun's northern hemisphere was involved in the event, which included a long-duration C3-class solar flare, a "solar tsunami," and a massive filament eruption. As a result of these blasts, a coronal mass ejection (CME) is heading toward Earth. High-latitude geomagnetic storms and auroras are possible when the cloud arrives a few days hence.

Astounding and tragic how psychologists continue to confess their crimes in public yet still maintain their funding!

"At this time we do not have a diagnostic test for ADHD. Therefore the validity of the disorder continues to be a problem." I'll say it's a problem. It's a complete and utter fraud! That's how much of a problem it is.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDWP37mysBc&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDWP37mysBc&feature=player_embedded
