NHS cuts 'planned across England'

By the way it's a good idea to wash vegitables and fruit in a mild (10%) bleach solution to kill bacteria.

The U.S.'s priortiies are out of whack.

Billions of dallars are spent on 'Terrorism,' while more people die from cantalope.

Cantaloupe vs. al-Qaeda: What’s More Dangerous?

Michael Meurer Op-ed

One of the most important revelations from the international drama over Edward Snowden’s NSA leaks in May is the exposure of a nearly lunatic disproportion in threat assessment and spending by the US government. This disproportion has been spawned by a fear-based politics of terror that mandates unlimited money and media attention for even the most tendentious terrorism threats, while lethal domestic risks such as contaminated food from our industrialized agribusiness system are all but ignored. A comparison of federal spending on food safety intelligence versus antiterrorism intelligence brings the irrationality of the threat assessment process into stark relief.

In 2011, the year of Osama bin Laden’s death, the State Department reported that 17 Americans were killed in all terrorist incidents worldwide. The same year, a single outbreak of listeriosis from tainted cantaloupe killed 33 people in the United States. Foodborne pathogens also sickened 48.7 million, hospitalized 127,839 and caused a total of 3,037 deaths. This is a typical year, not an aberration.

We have more to fear from contaminated cantaloupe than from al-Qaeda, yet the United States spends $75 billion per year spread across 15 intelligence agencies in a scattershot attempt to prevent terrorism, illegally spying on its own citizens in the process. By comparison, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is struggling to secure $1.1 billion in the 2014 federal budget for its food inspection program, while tougher food processing and inspection regulations passed in 2011 are held up by agribusiness lobbying in Congress. The situation is so dire that Jensen Farms, the company that produced the toxic cantaloupe that killed 33 people in 2011, had never been inspected by the FDA.

Clinton and Obama did what they could to enact a medical plan for U.S. citizens. The R's in congress prevented a single care "Medicaid" health insurance for all of us.

As bad as you may think the V.A. is, or as bad as Medicade is the current system is way worse.

Mike Papantino says you shouldn't take a pharmacutical that hasn't been on the market for less than ten years.

People are bleeding to death from a stubbed toe due to the blood thinners they take.

Spoke about the danger of generic medicine.

Congress is broken.

If someone is injured from a generic they can't sue for damages.

The U.S. medical and pharmacutical system is broken.

JAISAL NOOR, TRNN: Congress is calling for an investigation into dramatic price increases for EpiPens: drug-filled injectable devices used by people to counter potentially deadly allergic reactions. The price of a pack of two EpiPens has gone from $100 in 2008 to over $500 this year. Mylan acquired the product in 2007. An EpiPen injects a pre-measured dose of epinephrine. Lawmakers have urged the Federal Trade Commission on Monday to investigate the price increases.

Now joining us to discuss this is Jean Ross. She's a registered nurse for over 40 years in Minnesota, and also co-president of National Nurses
