Iraq Dispatches: Urgent Humanitarian Crisis in Western Iraq
By : Dr. Salam Ismael - Tuesday August 23, 2005
This is an appeal written by Iraqi Doctors concerning what is happening in western Iraq. It is both extremely informative as well as an important appeal.

None of them is the same after having spent six years at the Latin American Medical School (ELAM) in Havana, where young people from low-income families in 28 (...)

Junk Food Nation: Who’s to Blame for Childhood Obesity?
By : Gary Ruskin & Juliet Schor - Wednesday August 17, 2005
5 comments
by Gary Ruskin & Juliet Schor In recent months the major food companies have been trying hard to convince Americans that they feel the pain of our expanding waistlines, especially when it comes to kids. Kraft announced it would no longer market Oreos to younger children, McDonald’s promoted itself as a salad producer and Coca-Cola said it won’t advertise to kids under 12. But behind the scenes it’s hardball as usual, with the junk food giants pushing the Bush (...)

World Without Cancer
By : Share - Wednesday August 17, 2005
2 comments
G. Edward Griffin marshals the evidence that cancer is a deficiency disease - like scurvy or pellagra - aggravated by the lack of an essential food compound in modern man’s diet. That substance is vitamin B17. In its purified form developed for cancer therapy, it is known as Laetrile. This story is not approved by orthodox medicine. The FDA, the AMA, and The American Cancer Society have labeled it fraud and quackery. Yet the evidence is clear that here, at last, is the final (...)

Health lessons for Italians: eat 18 courses but forget the beach umbrella

by Mick Hume ITALY IS another country, they do things differently there, to paraphrase L. P. Hartley. So you hope that a fortnight in the sun on the Riviera dei Fiori in Liguria will also mean a holiday from the stifling climate of “Don’t eat/drink/do that” back home. Even here, however, the dead hand of the EU-wide health and safety regime now seems to have la dolce vita within its grasp. For example, the Vietato Fumare signs are spreading everywhere, since smoking in (...)

Depleted Uranium, Anthrax Vaccine & The Gulf War Syndrome, Part 1
By : James Howenstine - Tuesday August 9, 2005
by Dr. James Howenstine More and more veterans have become chronically ill from a multitude of symptoms since the end of Gulf War I. For many years the U.S. government denied any responsibility for their mysterious symptoms. Only 7,035 men were injured in this war. A total of 580,400 soldiers served in the first Gulf War. By the end of 2000 325,000 of these troops had become disabled This means that 56 % of those who served in the first Gulf War were disabled within less than 10 years. In (...)

As a six-year-old with quadriplegic cerebral palsy, she had been accepted into mainstream classes at Kelso Public School, near Bathurst, as part of a new policy of inclusion. "She needs to be in the world, and the world needs her, too," her mother Sally said at the time. Now in year 12 at Kelso High School, Allegra is 17 and, like all "life skills" students, will finish school next (...)

Big Brother Wants To Be Diet Cop Associated Press July 25, 2005 At least half a million New Yorkers have diabetes, many of them at risk for blindness, kidney failure, amputations and heart problems because they are doing a poor job of controlling their illness. The question is, how much privacy are they willing to give up for a chance at better health? A century after New York became the first American city to track people with infectious diseases as a way to halt epidemics, officials (...)

Unborn US babies soaked in chemicals

Unborn US babies are soaking in a stew of chemicals, including mercury, petrol by-products and pesticides, according to a report released today. Although the effects on the babies are not clear, the survey prompted several members of US Congress to press for legislation that would strengthen controls on chemicals in the environment. The report by the Environmental Working Group is based on tests of 10 samples of umbilical cord blood taken by the American Red Cross. They found an average (...)

PRESIDENTIAL MANIC BEHAVIOR By Peter Fredson July 2, 2005 When President Bush pranced before a crowd of captive soldiers last Tuesday at Fort Bragg he swaggered, smirked, gesticulated, glad-handed, grinned, and in many respects acted as though he had swallowed a handful of uppers before coming on-stage. Yet, despite grandiose pronouncements about offering a new strategy, Bush gave the same basic speech he gave many times previously: staying the course, insurgents hating democracy, our (...)

Andrew Sullivan’s Reckless Rhetoric
By : Wayne Besen - Wednesday June 29, 2005
by Wayne Besen First, I want to say that in some respects I am an Andrew Sullivan fan. At his best, he is an articulate spokesperson and a brilliant writer. On more than one occasion, he has obliterated gay rights opponents on television, helping to advance our cause. As an openly gay man living with HIV, Sullivan has also accomplished the remarkable feat of starting a wildly popular Blog with a sizable conservative following. For this, he deserves nothing but respect and admiration. (...)

How America Uses Aid As A Pretext For Intervention Ali Fayyad Edited by Rob Gibran June 25, 2005 Washington’s decision to send food aid to North Korea, rather than a purely humanitarian act spurred by deep sentiments of benevolence, brotherhood and care for one’s fellow man, is a cold, calculated decision to further its political, economic and military interests. In a new development on the North Korean front, the American government has decided to send a 50,000 ton shipment (...)

Hemp for Victory

Congressman Ron Paul, a libertarian from Texas and an obstetrician who has delivered over 6000 babies, is trying to deliver our farmers from a bureaucratic medievalism in Washington that keeps saying "No" to growing industrial hemp. Many farmers want to grow this 5000 year old long fiber plant that has been turned into thousands of products since being domesticated by the ancient Chinese. That is their heresy. The enforcer is the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in Washington, DC, which has (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
