In commemorating the 4th anniversary of the “Let’s Move” campaign to eliminate childhood obesity, Michelle Obama has been touting a study that claims a 43 percent reduction in only four short years. But the study itself is bogus.
Promises by the regime that patients could keep their doctor once transitioned to Obamacare have proven as false as the rest of the regime’s promises.
Obamacare has nothing to do with healthcare. It’s a big government boondoggle designed to transfer wealth, further enrich the medical-pharmaceutical-health insurance complex, limit choices and steal away medical freedom.

One in seven American women is currently suffering from breast cancer. The medical establishment pushes annual mammograms as the gold standard for early detection of breast cancer, with the idea that early detection reduces mortality. But a new study published in the British Medical Journal shows that annual mammograms do nothing to reduce mortality rates beyond that of “physical examination or usual care.”
In the study performed by Canadian researchers, 89,305 Canadian women aged 40-59 were enrolled and randomly assigned to one of two groups: one that receive mammograms and one that did not. During the study period that encompassed 25 years, 3,250 women receiving mammograms and 3,133 not receiving them were diagnosed with breast cancer. Of those 3,250 receiving mammograms, 500 died from breast cancer. Of those not receiving mammograms, 505 died from breast cancer.
An antidepressant commonly prescribed for women undergoing breast cancer treatment has been shown to promote the development and growth of breast tumors in women.
Researchers at the City of Hope cancer research center screened 446 drugs in wide circulation to identify how they disrupt the balance of sex hormones in humans and influence the development and progress of diseases like breast cancer. They found that paroxetine — better known by its commercial name Paxil — has a weak estrogenic effect that could promote the development and growth of breast tumors in women.
A stroke kills an American every four minutes. But researchers in France have found that certain foods can significantly lower your risk of this dangerous killer.
Drugs like Prozac®, Celexa®, Lexapro® and Zoloft® are known as selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and have been prescribed not only for depression, but for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dementia, social anxiety, premenstrual syndrome and compulsions for gambling, shopping, overeating and sex. As of 2007, antidepressants are the most widely prescribed medications in America.
SSRIs are associated with varied side effects; and individual reactions have been reported, including mass shootings. This means one person can experience unpleasant effects, while another person may not respond in the same way. For this reason, SSRIs must be monitored closely by a physician or licensed therapist. Side effects include nausea, sexual dysfunction, migraine, diarrhea, drowsiness, insomnia, weight gain and increased agitation and restlessness.
