Some of the most widely used prescription drugs, including those to treat cholesterol and high blood pressure, could be available over the counter under a new proposal being weighed by government regulators.

Food and Drug Administration officials said Wednesday they are considering waiving prescription requirements for certain drugs used to treat ailments like diabetes, asthma and migraine. Driving the move is a wave of computer technology, including touch-screen kiosks found in pharmacies, designed to help patients self-diagnose common diseases. FDA regulators told reporters that easing access to obtain certain medications could help address undertreated epidemics like diabetes. Of the more than 25 million Americans with diabetes, an estimated 7 million are not diagnosed and therefore do not receive treatment.

In a frightening example of how the state is tightening its grip around the free Internet, it has emerged that You Tube is complying with thousands of requests from governments to censor and remove videos that show protests and other examples of citizens simply asserting their rights, while also deleting search terms by government mandate. The latest example is You Tube's compliance with a request from the British government to censor footage of the British Constitution Group Lawful Rebellion protest, during which they attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court.

Many people buy organic foods from the grocery thinking that it's the healthy thing to do. Other people don't buy organic foods at all, thinking they're too expensive and just a scam by the food industry.

Demand has mushroomed, as it were, over the past couple of decades. The Soil Association reckons that since 1993, the UK market for organic food has grown.

Supermarkets' organic produce is invariably more expensive than the conventionally-grown equivalent. And as you'd expect, when times are tough, people cut back. No surprise that the market has dipped since 2008.

Once upon a time, anyone could declare their food product as organic. Some products were very organic and some weren't. As organic food became more popular, consumers wanted to be sure the food products they purchased were really, truly organic.

In response, state and federal agencies, in combination with private organizations, started to police which products were actually organic. For example, products produced at the School of Agriculture's Allison Organic Research Farm, north of Macomb, are certified organic by the Midwest Organic Services Association, an organization approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to monitor and certify organic food.

Hungary has taken a bold stand against biotech giant Monsanto and genetic modification by destroying 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds.

This according to Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar. Unlike many European Union countries, Hungary is a nation where genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned. In a similar stance against GM ingredients, Peru has also passed a 10 year ban on GM foods.

It's official. Monsanto Corporation is out to own the world's food supply, the dangers of genetic engineering and reduced biodiversity notwithstanding, as they pig-headedly set about hog-tying farmers with their monopoly plans.

We've discovered chilling new evidence of this in recent patents that seek to establish ownership rights over pigs and their offspring. One way or another, Monsanto wants to make sure no food is grown that they don't own -- and the record shows they don't care if it's safe for the environment or not. Monsanto has aggressively set out to bulldoze environmental concerns about its genetically engineered (GE) seeds at every regulatory level.

Thailand's revered national symbol, the elephant, may face a new threat of extinction: being poached not just for their tusks, but for their meat.

Two wild elephants were found slaughtered last month in a national park in western Thailand, alerting authorities to the new practice of consuming elephant meat "The poachers took away the elephants' sex organs and trunks ... for human consumption," Damrong Phidet, director-general of Thailand's wildlife agency, told The Associated Press. Some meat was to be consumed without cooking, like "elephant sashimi," he said.

Expect to see fewer "newsy" online advertisements hawking acai berry diet pills.

Federal regulators announced settlements Wednesday with six online marketers who were accused of using fake news sites on the Internet to entice customers to buy acai berry weight-loss products. They promised rapid and substantial weight loss, sometimes claiming people could lose 25 pounds in four weeks without changing their diets or exercising. The Federal Trade Commission says it was all a scam.
