And the government let us down.

In 1982 the Prince of Wales was elected president of the BMA, and promptly used this platform to lecture doctors on the attractions of healing. Naturally, he anticipated some resistance.

"Perhaps," he told the doctors, "we just have to accept it is God's will that the unorthodox individual is doomed to years of frustration, ridicule and failure in order to act out his role in the scheme of things, until his day arrives and mankind is ready to receive his message."

GlaxoSmithKline Plc's Paxil antidepressant is linked to a higher risk of suicide attempts in adults, according to a review of 16 studies by researchers in Norway and published in BMC Medicine journal.

The review looked at adult patients in studies comparing the Glaxo medicine against a placebo. In April, European health regulators warned that Paxil, Eli Lilly & Co.'s Prozac and other antidepressants shouldn't be used to treat children due to a risk of suicide. Aursnes said his study may convince doctors and regulators to more closely monitor all use of the drug. Glaxo got 1.06 billion pounds ($1.9 billion) in sales from Paxil last year.

JACKSONVILLE -- A verdict from a Texas jury is giving hope to dozens of Jacksonville famlies suing drug maker Merck over its arthritis medication, Vioxx.

Last week, that jury awarded more than $250 million to a Texas familiy, ruling that the maker of Vioxx was liable for the death of their loved one. Jacksonville widow Toni Raices says Vioxx killed her husband, too.

The costly Vioxx verdict makes its plan to take on each claim individually more difficult. But a big settlement is no easy cure, either

Unfortunately for Merck, the Aug. 19 decision by a Texas jury raises big questions about how the company can fend off the mountain of Vioxx suits it faces. It has two possible routes: Strike a big settlement to resolve most of these cases, or take on each case individually. But both approaches are fraught with risk for the drugmaker.

Pesticides pose a much greater health hazard than the West Nile virus.

I'm reminded of the 1950's...TV newscasts showing clouds of DDT sprayed on a clueless public, compromising their health and contaminating the environment for decades to come, as Rachel Carson writes "Silent Spring." Pesticides pose a much greater health hazard than the West Nile virus.

Officials within the FDA and CDC, are always claiming that researchers and scientists who conduct studies, not funded by drug companies or the government, are making unfounded claims about a link between thimerosal-laced vaccines and autism.

I say cut the crap.

Think about it. Why would so many highly respected scientists, researchers and physicians go to such great lengths to concoct bogus studies and issue false reports, in essence putting their professional reputations on the line, if their was no connection'

I want these officials to do two things. First I want them to give me one good reason why these professionals would make this up, and two, I want them to give me one logical alternative theory for the current epidemic of disorders.

Like most of us, Christy Diemond didn’t announce, "I want to be a consumer advocate" when she was six years old. It started like it usually does, personally.

This mainstream mortgage broker and mother of two began feeling sick. She'd read a book about mercury poisoning, which stuck with her. Diemond decided to try having her (silver/mercury) amalgam fillings removed from her teeth and replaced with composites. The first time she went to a dentist, she didn't really feel any better afterward - but thought all the mercury was taken out. It actually took three more dentists and seven more years before she was able to verify that all the amalgam was really gone. Then she actually started feeling better. Diemond now has no more chronic fatigue, arthritis or cloudy thinking. It all stemmed from mercury poisoning.
