I’ve often linked Chris Masterjohn on this website over the years. Chris runs The Daily Lipid and Cholesterol and Health. This snippet is from the Cholesterol and Health website: According to Michael Brown and Joseph Goldstein, winners of the Nobel Prize in 1985 for their discovery of the receptor that brings cholesterol into cells, the [...]

The Government Wants to Know Your Bad Habits

Friday, November 23, 2012 19:06 1 Comment

They want to know about your alcohol, drug, and “other illicit substance” habits. And they’ll bribe you with a whopping $30 to get the information under the pretense of a “national study on health-related issues.” Thanks to Travis Holte for the link.

A Caveman Still Taking on the Dinosaurs

Thursday, October 11, 2012 20:16 No Comments

I’ve blogged before about the Diabetes Warrior, Steve Cooksey, a paleo blogger who has been under attack from the Nutrition Nazis in North Carolina for daring to write about food choices and health matters on his own blog without the appropriate government “license.” Journalist Sara Burrows reports: A federal judge has thrown out Paleo-diet blogger [...]

CDC on Hepatitis C Hysteria

Sunday, August 19, 2012 19:31 No Comments

Another CDC hysteria alert. So, the CDC is now recommending one-time testing for hepatitis C for everyone in the country born between 1945 and 1965, he said. All those who test positive for the virus should receive a brief alcohol screening and intervention and be referred to appropriate care and treatment services. Alcohol use has [...]

It’s that time, again, to start putting the flu season on everyone’s radar map. The CDC has announced a new vaccine for a new swine flu. “This virus is still principally a swine virus, but it doesn’t seem to have onward spread. It’s still not a human virus,” Dr. Joseph Bresee, from the CDC’s influenza [...]

Rejecting the Government’s Poison is Bad For Your Health

Sunday, August 5, 2012 7:24 1 Comment

It is said that parents are putting their children in danger by giving them bottled water that doesn’t contain the government’s fluoride. This article from Tuscon News Now (via Health Day News) is a product of the anti-bottled water brigade – that is, those who are unable to bear the notion that people may have other [...]

Dietary Supplement Scaremongering

Tuesday, July 3, 2012 12:00 4 Comments

An article in the Chicago Tribune, titled “Dietary supplements: Manufacturing troubles widespread, FDA inspections show” is quite a scare piece designed to plant the seed that supplements which come from outside of the medical-pharmaceutical establishment are untested, lack rigorous federal oversight, and thus are dangerous.

Friendly Fascism and the Overlords

Wednesday, May 16, 2012 3:46 4 Comments

Once again, silly little things like freedom and self-ownership get in the way of important master plans such as universal flu vaccinations. I’ve linked to these NIH publications before, but I hadn’t seen this one until reader Rob P. sent it to me.

The Vaccination Nation Aggressors Are the Neocons of the Health World

Tuesday, May 15, 2012 21:24 8 Comments

This imbecilic article, written by some unknown, crazed Vaccination Nation aggressor, was posted on my Facebook page, and it’s only worth my comment because it is … so utterly impotent. I don’t even care about the homeopathic nut who is the subject of the rant, or the unnamed author who can’t take on hard science, [...]

The American Disease Association Nutrition Prisons

Tuesday, April 24, 2012 18:40 No Comments

My new favorite reporter for the Carolina Journal, Sara Burrows, is covering the Diabetes Warrior case in North Carolina. I wrote about this story back in early March, in my blog post, “The ADA is a Totalitarian Arm of the State.” Writes Sara: But this past January the state diatetics and nutrition board decided Cooksey’s [...]
