Drugging America’s Veterans: Why are America’s war veterans being fed so many drugs?
The US consumes 80% of the world’s painkillers and more die from them than heroin and cocaine combined. Fatal overdoses among war veterans are twice the national average: so why are they being fed so many drugs?
“I couldn’t believe the amount of medication being prescribed to him”, says Jeff Waggoner’s father sadly. After being evacuated out of Afghanistan with a serious groin injury, Jeff became addicted to painkillers in an army hospital in Oregan. The army discharged him with a massive cocktail of narcotics in his pocket. That night Jeff died in a motel corridor from an overdose of oxycodone, tranquilisers and muscle relaxants. Analysis of 12 years of prescription data from the US Veteran’s Association shows that prescriptions for 4 highly addictive painkillers have surged by 270% since the war in Afghanistan began, far outstripping the increase in patients. Retired brigadier and psychiatrist Dr Xenakis explains, “in these clinics they’re very busy, they’ve got pressures. Giving a prescription is almost default”. For him it’s clear that opiates harm rather than heal veterans. Dr Robert Petzel, the VA’s undersecretary for health, insists opiates are only a last resort and “there are very careful protocols”. But this report found veterans across the country locked in a life and death struggle with their painkiller addiction. For Fallujah veteran Tim Fazio it’s simple: “if doctor’s give it to me, I’m gonna take it”.

The FDA just approved a controversial, highly addictive painkiller known as Zohydro. It’s 5-10 times stronger than Vicodin and retains its potency even when crushed, making it an easy target for abuse. What’s worse is, the company who will manufacture it ALSO manufactures a drug for painkiller addiction. That is the Circle of Life in doped up America. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses.

There have been many discussions about the winners and losers of Obamacare. But there is one group of winners that has flown under the radar: the women who work in Nevada‘s legal brothels. Previous to the Affordable Care Act‘s health-care exchanges, legal sex workers employed by brothels were turned away from health insurance company after health insurance company due to the nature of their careers, despite the fact that they are legally employed and tested weekly for sexually transmitted diseases (unlike illegal street prostitutes). RT‘s Ameera David talks with Dennis Hof, owner of “The Bunny Ranch” brothel, and two of his employees there, Caressa Kisses and Taylor Lee, about how the new health-care law is providing insurance for this previously uncoverable group.

Insane Home Fat Loss
More “health” foods that make you FAT: http://sixpackshortcuts.com/rd5g
Hey y’all…what’s up! In this episode, Sanela and I are going to show you 5 foods which everyone THINKS are healthy…but which actually make you FAT.
These foods can REALLY sabotage you if you’re trying to lose fat. You’ll think that you’re eating healthy, but really the foods you’re eating may be worse than the junk food you normally eat! Even worse, you won’t be mentally counting these foods as “cheating”… so you’ll likely cheat with “regular” junk foods on top of eating the stuff that you think is healthy.
Sanela and I also show you the healthier (and great tasting) alternative foods that you should eat instead of these 5 foods.
Hope you enjoy the video! And if you’re really serious about losing your belly fat FAST, watch this video right now:
In this video I show you why “going on a diet” DOESN’T WORK. And I show you the much more effective “eating system” that Sanela and I use instead to stay lean and toned, without having to count calories or constantly stress about our diet.
If you’re struggling with losing your stubborn belly fat, you need to see this NOW:
