Is Sugar Really That Bad For You??

Filed under: FoodHealthScience!

sugar-sweetener-fake-good__opt.jpg

It seems that no matter what we eat, something is slowly killing us according to some new study.

Know what we've noticed recently?

Science is attacking sugar! The building blocks of basically all food!

They've gone as far as to say it's a poison that is literally killing this nation.

Dr. David Katz, director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center, said:

"We actually need sugar; it's our body's preferred fuel. But we eat too damn much of it."

So it's naturally occurring sugars (like in fruit, some veggies, milk, etc.) that is good for us.

It's all the added sugar that's bad.

But what about artificial sweeteners??

For-Profit Food Inspectors Allowing Toxic Food??

Filed under: Icky Icky PooBusiness BlitzFoodScary!

toxic-food-inspectors-profit-sickness-illness

This is SO scary, and we don't know how these privatized food inspectors can live with themselves: there is a growing number of severe failures in oversight in food inspection, causing millions of Americans to fall sick… all for money.

The problem is that the food industry has taken over much of the FDA’s role in ensuring that what Americans eat is safe — for instance, in 2011, the FDA inspected ONLY 6 percent of domestic food producers and just 0.4 percent of importers!

The food industry is hiring for-profit companies who aren’t required by law to meet any federal standards and have no government supervision.

Sports Bra Can Detect Early Breast Cancer Signs

Filed under: Fashion SmashionEtc.

THIS is what technology was made for!

First Warning Systems has developed a sports bra with sensors that can detect tumors in the breast six years before imaging, seven years before a mammogram, and eight years before a standard breast exam.

Wow. That's HUGE!

The bra has a 90% and higher success rate, meaning it’s pretty damn accurate!

It will be launched in Europe in 2013, and with FDA approval will be available in the US by 2014.

The initial investment is expected to be less than $1,000, which isn’t pocket change, but you can’t put a price on health!

Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to learn more about how this AH-Mayzing boulder holder works!

Once-A-Day HIV Treatment Pill Gets FDA Approval!

Filed under: HealthScience!

Stribild Approved FDA HIV

This is good news for those out there that have HIV but struggle with taking all the medications to keep it in check.

The FDA has just approved a new pill, taken once a day, that combines two previously approved drugs plus two new ones.

It's called Stribild, and it provides a complete treatment regimen for HIV infection. It's supposed to be available by the end of the week!

The only problem is that it costs more than the other treatments, which is kind of bullshizz. Gilead, the creator of the drug, is charging wholesalers $28,500 a year for the drug, though apparently it will provide discounts to state assistance programs and has created a patient financial-assistance program.

This is not much more effective than the multi-pill regimen, but only having to take one pill instead of many is the main draw.

It's too bad about the price, though!
