The drug industry’s links to sexual medicine run deep

by MATTHEW PERRONE How do you measure sexual desire? If you’re a drugmaker trying to win approval for a medication to boost female libido, it might come down to two questions on a medical questionnaire. Those questions made the difference for Sprout Pharmaceuticals, which received federal approval Tuesday for Addyi, the first pill for women who suffer from a loss of sexual appetite. But the history and development of that questionnaire — funded by drugmakers — underscores how closely the field of sexual medicine is intertwined with the pharmaceutical industry. And lends weight to arguments that low libido is just … Continue reading The drug industry’s links to sexual medicine run deep

New Study: Depression Definitely Linked To Refined Carbohydrates

By Amanda Froelich Psychological health is deeply affected by physiological choices – one more reason to “think before you eat.” Could the bout of the blues you’re dealing with possibly be linked to the pasta you had for last night’s dinner? According to new research, absolutely. While the importance of consuming wholesome, unprocessed foods has almost become common knowledge in recent years, the average American’s diet is still predominantly (70%) made up of processed junk. A number of factors are to blame for this (finances, emotional cravings, physiological addiction, etc…), but it’s a less-than-stellar habit that needs to be curbed, … Continue reading New Study: Depression Definitely Linked To Refined Carbohydrates

How Insomnia Took Me to the Verge of Suicide—and a Popular Club Drug Pulled Me Back

Photography by Kylli Sparre. One woman’s harrowing journey through two decades of insomnia and chemical sleep. By Celia Farber / Van Winkle’s Original published by Van Winkle’s, a new website dedicated to smarter sleep & wakefulness, published by Casper. Dr. Brooks snaps the vial into the syringe and pushes it into my vein, correcting an oft-repeated myth in the seconds before I depart. “It’s not a horse tranquilizer,” he said reassuringly. “Vets don’t use ketamine.” I smiled a little. Truth be told, I wouldn’t have cared if it were used as a whale tranquilizer. I’d been struggling with depression for … Continue reading How Insomnia Took Me to the Verge of Suicide—and a Popular Club Drug Pulled Me Back

The Inner Forms the Outer

Photograph by Lee van Laer By Lee van Laer Human  beings are peculiar creatures. We can think; and it sets us apart from other creatures, who can think some (consider the honeybee) but not much. Thinking, over the last 10,000 or so years (a rough estimate,) mankind has occupied himself, in the disciplines of science and philosophy, with the question of what, exactly, we are. This is, indeed, the question at the core of all the great traditions as well, which presume a spiritual — or inner — nature that forms the outer one. Lo and behold! We are nothing … Continue reading The Inner Forms the Outer

From the Independent: Taking drugs is a human right, according to a cross-party group of MPs and peers who want to legalise the possession, purchase and growing of drugs. The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Drug Policy Reform want to use human rights legislation to decriminalise drug use, claiming the “blanket prohibition” drug policy approach has failed. In a new report it suggests that Article 8 … Continue reading Taking (Recreational) Drugs Is A Human Right

Black Magic Rules the World – Not Politicians, Bankers or the Military

by Makia Freeeman, Guest, Waking Times Black magic is the force that rules the world, so it is the Satanic black magicians which constitute the true controllers of the world – at least in the human Earthly realm. The Satanic black magicians pull the strings, not politicians, corporate bosses, military heads, intelligence chiefs or even international bankers – although they also hold many of those roles. The NWO (New World Order) elite fulfill a hidden role and an outer, more respectable public role. While many Satanic black magicians are also businessmen and bankers, their true ruling power comes from Satanism and the twisted use of humanity’s creative … Continue reading Black Magic Rules the World – Not Politicians, Bankers or the Military

Brainwashing versus education: The West spreads “intellectual idiocy”

SCHPLOOK/FLICKR BY ANDRE VITCHEK | GLOBAL RESEARCH Could any dictator desire more? Almost the entire population of the Empire is now thinking the same way! The populace is “educated” at schools and the universities staffed with submissive, and cowardly teachers and professors. The populace is “informed” by hundreds of thousands of servile journalists and “analysts”. There is almost no deviation from the official narrative. Congratulations, Western Empire! You have succeeded where others tried but failed. You have achieved almost absolute obedience and discipline, a total servility. And more than that most of the people actually think that they are free, … Continue reading Brainwashing versus education: The West spreads “intellectual idiocy”
