Many cancer deaths traced to alcohol
Fox News, by Carl Nierenberg

Original Article

Posted By:ruready?, 2/24/2013 8:14:59 AM

Alcohol use accounted for roughly 3.5 percent of all cancer deaths in the United States in 2009, a new study finds. This amounts to nearly 20,000 Americans who lost their lives to cancer that year as a result of drinking.[snip]"Alcohol is a known cancer-causing agent in humans, but it has been severely overlooked as a preventable cause of cancer deaths," said study co-author Timothy Naimi, a physician and alcohol researcher at Boston University Medical Center. "People need to know the impact of alcohol on cancer deaths because it´s another reason why they should not drink excessively."

I´m with #1. It´s always "It´s for your own good, you´re just too stupid to know it"

BTW, anybody ever get annoyed at the stupid seat belt buzzer in your car. Can´t get in the car without the thing banging. I use my late model Honda SUV to drive around my private property, neighbors´ property, dirt roads, 3 MPH, and the seat belt alarm is banging. "It´s for your own good. Buckle up ..."

Liberals are everywhere. Wish they would move to another planet.

What were the controls on this study? Did these people ONLY drink alcohol and come in contact with nothing else? Maybe it was cocktail peanuts or the olives or the coke in the Cuba Libre or the hot sauce in the Bloody Mary that did it. I know: it was tiny umbrella poisoning!

Wonder if they will ever delve into marijuana and a link to breast cancer? Naw, too popular.

I think this study is amusing because the first public miracle recorded was Jesus turning water into some really fine wine at a wedding. There was also another passage mentioning a glass of wine helping digestion with a meal. So I take a study like this with the teensiest grain of salt.

Research could show 3.5% for any food or beverage. In fact, granola or tofu may be worse.

How would you describe 3.5% of something? If four out of five dentists recommend Trident gum, that´s "most" dentists. Three out of five would be "a majority" of dentists, and two out of five might be "many" dentists. But 3.5%? That´s less than four out of a hundred. I would describe that as "very few" or "almost no" cancer deaths linked to alcohol.

Bottoms up, my friends.

I like to know what I´m putting in my body and its effect. The problem frequently is that we are not given enough information about how the study was conducted to determine if it is relative to our personal life. For months, local and national news have been pushing flu vaccines especially for the "elderly". But now we are told these same vaccines are only 9% effective for the "elderly". The second I read or hear the word "study" I begin to doubt what comes next.

This study is a disgrace to the scientific community. There are also many anger-related deaths in people who do not consume alcohol. If so, can one claim that not drinking alcohol causes cancer?

If stopping the use of high potency chemical drug therapy were replaced with so many different natural methods available of getting the body in a PH alkaline balance, I bet the cancer death rate would go down tremendously. But, then also would the profits of the big Pharmas.

Let´s see, alcohol is good for your heart but causes cancer.

Why is it that all of these studies can tell you what causes cancer, but we are light years from a cure ?

House Republicans Are Quietly
Giving in to Obamacare
New Republic, by BRIAN BEUTLER    Original Article

A week and a half ago, when House Republican leaders realized that their own conservative members might align to defeat legislation protecting Medicare physicians from a big automatic pay cut, they took the unusual step of cutting them out of the tangle altogether. While negotiations were ongoing, the Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, darted on to the House floor and, after brief consultation with Democratic leaders, cleared the Medicare "doc fix" by voice vote—a procedure that´s typically reserved for fast tracking uncontroversial legislation. The yeahs and nays were not recorded. A bill that divided the GOP conference, and might very well

With swimsuit season right around the corner, a new science-based, anti-diet book offers the most enabling advice we’ve heard this year: Those thunder thighs you hate so much might be key to long life. “The Obesity Paradox” presents compelling evidence that those with excess baggage might be healthier and better able to fight off diseases than normal-weight counterparts. Conversely, the “thin and unfit” waifs have the worst body types for long-term health. Though obesity remains a risk factor of “epidemic portions” — more, some researchers say, than smoking or alcoholism— associated with heart disease, stroke, Type-2 diabetes,

Wenzhou - Thousands of Chinese Christians have mounted an extraordinary, round-the-clock defence of a church in a city known as the ´Jerusalem of the East´ after Communist Party officials threatened to bulldoze their place of worship. In an episode that underlines the fierce and long-standing friction between China´s officially atheist Communist Party and its rapidly growing Christian congregation, Bible-carrying believers this week flocked to the Sanjiang church in Wenzhou hoping to protect it from the bulldozers. Their 24-hour guard began earlier this week when a demolworshippers say cost around 30 million yuan (£2.91

Louisiana state senator worries
strengthened cockfighting law
would outlaw ´chicken boxing´
Times-Picayune [New Orleans, LA], by Emily Lane    Original Article
Posted By: ruready?- 4/1/2014 5:20:10 PM     Post Reply
At a Glance: The current cockfighting law contains language that makes it difficult to enforce because it specifies a certain species of chicken. Proposed legislation would fix the loophole by expanding it to include any kind of foul forced into fighting for sport. It also increases penalties by putting them on par with dog fighting. The Louisiana Senate Judiciary C Committee advanced the bill Tuesday (April 1), but not without some debate from a St. Landry Parish lawmaker about ramifications of the proposed law revisions on a sport he called "chicken boxing." The bill: Senate Bill 523, sponsored by Sen.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal confirmed he is considering running for president in 2016, during an interview with the Heritage Foundation during its annual Resource Bank meeting in New Orleans. "It´s something we´re thinking about. It´s something we´ll pray about.

"We´ve got to win the elections in 2014. And after we do that, we´re certainly giving it some thought.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday blasted the Obama administration’s decision to extend enrollment in the healthcare law’s insurance exchange for some people. “What the hell is this, a joke?” Boehner said at his weekly press conference. He was responding to the administration’s announcement on Tuesday evening that people who had begun the process of signing up for insurance through the federal exchanges would have until mid-April to do so, instead of March 31. The Speaker called the move “another deadline made meaningless,” adding it to a litany of unilateral changes to the law that the administration has made.

If the conservative insurgency has been crushed, why was Mitch McConnell walking around onstage at CPAC with a musket? He couldn’t have sucked up to the right any harder if he wore a tri-corner hat and had the Gadsden flag tattooed on his rear. The death of the conservative revolution, the Tea Party, or whatever you call it, has not merely been greatly exaggerated. It’s been flat-out lied about. It isn’t dead. It just changed, from a shoestring operation to one with real clout. And it’s well on its way to doing what it set out to do – arm-twist

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
