Social services are running out of money, cutting benefits by 35 percent

"Lawmakers have many policy options that would reduce or eliminate the long-term financing shortfalls in Social Security and Medicare," according to an administration statement. "Lawmakers should address these financial challenges as soon as possible."
Does this also apply for the Senate? I would really love to see how they fell into a mental dilemma between serving the people and decreasing the state.
"Americans pay into these essential programs throughout their working lives, and they expect to receive the benefits they’ve earned," said Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts, the Democratic chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

"Social Security’s total cost is projected to exceed its total income (including interest) in 2020 for the first time since 1982, and to remain higher throughout the remainder of the projection period," the report found.

Y quienes consumían (en el estudio) edulcorantes artificiales también tenían más probabilidades de sufrir hipertensión, enfermedades cardiovasculares y accidentes cerebrovasculares.

Hay que evitar que esas organizaciones tipo FDA, etc. no les permitan a sus empresas vender porquerías.

Simple cooking methods flush arsenic out of rice : Nature News & Comment https://www.nature.com/news/simple-cooking-methods-flush-arsenic-out-of-rice-1.18034
cooked rice in an apparatus that continually condenses steam to produce a fresh supply of distilled hot water, and in an ordinary coffee percolator with a filter, which allows cooking water to drip out of the rice. Testing the rice before and after cooking showed that coffee-pot percolation removed about half the arsenic, and that the lab apparatus removed around 60–70%.

Why do governments trust Big Pharma more than their citizens? Should they not insist drug companies reveal the costs of research especially if grants are given?


Italy has come up with a plan to slash the cost of medicines by May. But for the strategy to work, they need everyone to get on board.

Drug companies have also used the cost of researching and developing new medicines to justify their high prices. However, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association this year found few links between the two.

The research included 99 cancer drugs approved by the United States medicines regulator, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), over about 30 years. It revealed that companies coined about R200 for every rand spent on research and development – a ratio the authors say is unfair, even after they considered a reward for innovation.

Besides, companies aren’t always upfront about what costs really go into their products, says James Love, director of the public health law organisation Knowledge Ecology International.

Israeli scientists manage to print artificial heart with patient's cells for the first time ever

The process of creating the heart started with a biopsy of fatty tissue taken from patients. The cellular material from the tissues was used as the "ink" for the print job. That allowed researchers to create complex tissue models including cardiac patches and eventually an entire heart. It should be noted that the heart isn't very big -- it's only about the size of a rabbit's heart. But the technology that made it possible could eventually lead to the production of a human-sized organ. Currently, the hearts can only contract but researchers plan on culturing the 3D printed hearts and teaching them how to operate like the real deal. Once that process is complete, they will attempt to transplant them into animal models.

Sleep myths 'damaging your health' | BBC News

Widely held myths about sleep are damaging our health and our mood, as well as shortening our lives, say researchers.
A team at New York University trawled the internet to find the most common claims about a good night's kip.
Then, in a study published in the journal Sleep Health, they matched the claims to the best scientific evidence.
They hope that dispelling sleep myths will improve people's physical and mental health and well-being.

On Bernie Sanders' (I - Vt) town hall appearance on Fox News


(I preferred the Vox article over the Fox News article because the Fox one wrote that Bernie didn't apologise for being a millionaire thanks to his book royalties. It hit the stance of saying that Democrats spat upon millionaires for being millionaires, which is wrong. It regards those millionaires a failure which lead companies but don't pay their employees fair salaries and evade taxes. I don't agree with AOC's employee who claims every billionaire a failure generally, I only call those a failure who happen to dump their employees and avoid to pay their fair share to our society. There's a difference, please mind that)
When speaking directly to audience members or to the TV audience watching at home, Sanders was sincere and open. When asked about President Donald Drumpf, he spoke with emotion about how he hoped everyone could agree a “pathological liar” should not be president; in his closing statement, he practically begged for more comity in the country, without backing off his

Real-life quidditch is like American football: Bad for your health

According to NPR, a recent study out of the University of Edinburgh found that though injury rates reported by quidditch players were no higher than other sports, concussions accounted for 20 percent of those injuries. For reference, concussions account for somewhere between three and ten percent of all professional rugby injuries, so 20 percent is kind of a lot.
As I said: It's like football, even when it comes to one of the most life-threatening injuries you can get from practicing it.
Quidditch teams are also made up of all genders, which offers an inclusivity that draws many to the sport but comes with additional problems for its women players, who experience concussions at twice the rate of male players. Vanessa Barker, who plays at the University of Maryland, has suffered multiple concussions while playing:
That's why we separate the sexes in sports: Because males are different from females in biological terms.

FDA Fluoride Proposal Raises Neurotoxicity Concerns in Media....On Tuesday, the S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release announcing a new proposal to lower the maximum level of fluoride that can be added to bottled water, from 0.8 ppm down to 0.7 ppm. The reduction of 0.1 ppm is FDA’s effort to help reduce rampant dental fluorosis. This change does not lower the allowable level of naturally occurring fluoride in bottled water.

DOJ to overturn work requirement for Medicaid in KY and AR

At issue are rules the Drumpf administration approved in the states obligating some people to work, volunteer, or take classes for 80 hours a month to be allowed to remain on Medicaid.

The rules don't apply to caregivers, parents, and people undergoing treatment for serious illness, but plaintiffs say they are illegal and do not serve the purpose of Medicaid, which is jointly funded by states and the federal government.

The Drumpf administration's argument is that Medicaid could go beyond providing healthcare coverage and instead, through work requirements, help beneficiaries improve their lives by earning more money and securing private health insurance coverage. It notes that people who work are healthier and improving health is another goal of Medicaid.

Gene-silencing: 'New class' of medicine reverses disease porphyria | BBC News

Doctors have used a new type of medicine called "gene silencing" to reverse a disease that leaves people in crippling pain.
The condition, acute intermittent porphyria, also causes paralysis and is fatal in some cases.
The novel approach fine-tunes the genetic instructions locked in our DNA.
Doctors say they are "genuinely surprised" how successful it is and that the same approach could be used in previously untreatable diseases.

Molecular Hydrogen....Hydrogen is the simplest and lightest element on the periodic table, consisting of just one electron and one proton. It is the most abundant element in the universe – the stuff of stars, nebulas, and gas giant planets. Molecular Hydrogen's small size and other unique properties have inspired innovative scientists to research its potential therapeutic uses and take advantage of its anti-aging, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-allergenic effects.

California flushes Big Gulp Ban

Asm. David Chiu plans to re-activate the bill next year. It’s goal is to make it illegal for retailers from selling or giving away cups with removable lids that can hold more than 16 fluid ounces. Many times these cups are used for fountain soda or frozen sugary drinks.
For my metric fellowship: 16 fluid ounces approximately equal 473. millilitres, 0.83 British pints (yes, I will add it hereby, for the English amongst you), or two cups of coffee. I hope this helped you out and realise how much this is when you drink it in shape of a sugary drink like Coca Cola, or Fanta. Brace for diabetics when you drink from such cups.
The average American drinks nearly 50 gallons of sugar-sweetened beverages a year. Those drinks, including soda, energy drinks, sweet teas, and sports drinks have been linked with diabetes, obesity, dental disease, and heart disease. A 2013–2014 California Health Interview Survey shows that 41% of children ages 2 to 11, and 62% of teens ages 12-17, drink a soda every d

Ohio's heartbeat bill gains national momentum

The so-called "heartbeat bill," which prohibits abortions as early as six weeks into a woman's pregnancy, has been endorsed by Vice President Mike Pence and is seen as a credible threat to the landmark case Roe v. Wade.

Porter, a former legislative director with Ohio Right to Life and current leader of Faith2Action, was frustrated with the slow, incremental approach that other conservatives were taking toward banning abortion. She clashed with her former organization, dividing Republicans into conservatives and arch-conservatives.

The legislation has not taken effect anywhere yet, blocked by court decisions or pending legal actions. The Eighth District Court of Appeals has struck down two state's laws as unconstitutional, and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to weigh in so far.
