New legislation would prevent the FDA from denying appropriate experimental drugs from dying patients. Action Alert!
For patients whose doctors have exhausted current medical options and the patient has been told that the end of life is nearing, why should the government in Washington care what treatment the patient may choose? If I’m dying anyway, shouldn’t I have the freedom to decide if the risk is worth it?”

The use of psychiatry to diagnose people with mental illnesses and restrain them against their will in psychiatric wards is not new. Unfortunately, such stories are becoming much more common in the present-day USA. Justina Pelletier's story, for example, is gaining national attention even in the mainstream media right now. This 15-year-old girl has been confined to psychiatric care against her desire and the desires of her parents for over a year now. Psychiatry is not a medical science based on biology. There are no laboratory tests that can detect mental disease. All mental illnesses are defined by psychiatrists according to behaviors and then voted on to be included in their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The latest version, version 5 (DSM5) was published last year and is very controversial. New disorders are added with each revision, making it legal to prescribe dangerous and addictive drugs for these published mental diseases. This week the Courthouse News Service has published a news release regarding a case filed in court where a 56-year-old woman was forcibly confined to a psychiatric ward against her will for praying and fasting. Medical tyranny is alive and widely practiced in the U.S. today. And there are signs that the role of psychiatrists will increase under Obamacare.

Cytokines are immune-regulating substances that can have inflammatory effects on the body, and are therefore linked to pain. In this study, both betamethasone and ginger extract reduced cytokines in comparable amounts. The authors […]
Another of the study’s authors, Professor David Hafler, from Yale University, said that nature had clearly not intended for the immune system to attack its host body, so he expected that an external factor was playing a part.
He said: ‘These are not diseases of bad genes alone or diseases caused by the environment, but diseases of a bad interaction between genes and the environment.
