Health Insurance Getting Dropped: a Real-Life, Small Business Example

KM–a friend of mine and Cubbie’s–is a physician in Central Kentucky. Here is her response to my recent post: Here is an example for you… I am a small business owner (8 employees plus myself) who has provided group health insurance since opening my business. Six of those employees were covered by health insurance and […]

Major Stem Cell Breakthrough

ADULT stem cells, that is. In this case, using mature stem cells, scientists were able to grow a “baby” liver.

News Flash: Cheating Can Be Bad For Your Heart

Colin Campbell provides substantial insight as to the conflicts between science, government, the medical establishment, and the food industry in the fight over what constitutes proper nutrition.
