Biohackers Figure Out How To Make Insulin 98% Cheaper | Freethink by carn0ld03 in Medicine

[–]AmericanMuskrat 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It's estimated that a vial of insulin costs pharmaceutical companies five to six dollars to manufacture, but because of a complicated web of regulations those companies are able to sell vials for $180-400.

The pricing structure for medications people need to live is what they will pay to live. It isn't regulation, it's blatant avarice.

Biogen’s Alzheimer’s drug approved by FDA, first new therapy in nearly two decades by Drewski in Medicine

[–]Alan_Crowe 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The controversy here is that it might not be a therapy. After two decades of drugs failing in trials, the FDA has watered down the criteria for approval. The drug is supposed to treat Alzheimer's Disease by clearing away the amyloid protein. The traditional end point for a trial is whether it treats Alzheimer's Disease; that is: does it have an effect on the disease. Drug industry jargon calls having an effect on the disease efficacy.

Derek Lowe, a drug industry insider, explains here

The agency seems to have approved it based on its demonstrated ability to clear beta-amyloid, and is asking Biogen to run a confirmatory trial to show efficacy.

It seems that the big story here is the stock price, not the millions of people who might be helped by this medicine. Follow the money. Thanks.

LMAO, I heard this on the news this morning and was just talking to my coworker about this.

She's been saying for ages that the vaccine is gonna end up just like a flu shot, and we're going to hear every year now "don't forget to get your flu shot and COVID shot!"

I can locate it easier by giving you a fight or flight reaction.

The amygdala is some old evolutional heritage one could suppose we should've been able to get rid off in 200000 years of history of the homo sapiens.

Sadly we ain't. So it stays the easiest way to trick people.

Amygdala by ElifromtheBook in Medicine

[–]jet199 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

To locate your amygdalae (that’s the plural – there are two of them, one in each hemisphere), place your thumbs against your ears and middle fingers on the outside corners of your eyes. About 25mm inside your head from where your forefingers naturally come to rest on your temples is where your amygdalae reside. Visualize a feather softly tickling the anterior (forward) part of the amygdala, first on one side, then the other. If you prefer, use a pair of feathers and do both sides at the same time. That’s all there is to it. Just remember, gentleness (you’re using a feather, not a cattle prod!) and directing energy forward, into the frontal lobes, are the keys to success.

It also doesn't mention the 1-molecule cure-all for cancer that I am aware of.

An Examination of the Association of Selected Toxic Metals with Total and Central Obesity Indices: NHANES 99-02 by Horrux in Medicine

[–]Horrux[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I would like to bring special attention to the conclusion, and even moreso the 3rd paragraph of it:

One possible explanation for why some toxic metals (barium and thallium) positively associate with obesity is that they induce oxidative stress, which increases lipogenesis at the expense of energy production [32]. Oxidative stress can be either by directly generating free radicals, in the case of redox-cycling metals such as barium or thallium, or indirectly by non-redox cycling metals such as lead and mercury [18]. Indirect induction of oxidative stress can be mediated by reducing glutathione levels or by interfering with iron metabolism. Reactive oxygen species directly or indirectly generated by metals can inhibit the normal mitochondrial metabolic function, and prevent the mitochondria from producing energy, in the form of ATP, by oxidative phosphorylation. The lower levels of ATP, coupled by the diminished efficacy of the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle due to inhibition of enzymes such as aconitase, which are sensitve to oxidative stress, would cause the liver to divert metabolites to lipogenesis [32]. However, if metal-induced oxidative stress is a major cause of obesity, it is not clear why some metals, such as barium and thallium, positively associate with obesity, whereas other metals, such as lead, cadmium, and cesium negatively associate with obesity.

Toxic metals are DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY responsible for obesity. So take that, all of you "thermodynamics" drones.

Thank you.

He was referring to the fact that gay men have vastly higher rates of anal and colon cancer. This study may explain the "why" mechanism. They are literally screwing up the bacteria in their ass through sex/shoving stuff that doesn't belong in there.

The rate of anal cancer among MSM is seventeen times higher than among heterosexuals. src

These facts are hidden in CDC data and other places but cannot be discussed because nothing that shows any behavior or group as perceivably "inferior" can be talked about. You get wonderful pieces of idiocy like this instead.

Weird how it encourages the women to decide for home abortion to avoid being judged by anyone for the murder. Even though it mentions that only a surgical abortion at the clinic can guarantee that all the unwanted baby stuff inside the womb gets out of there.

In August 2014, CDC whistleblower Dr. Thompson stated that a MMR vaccine safety study conducted by the CDC “demonstrated a causal link between vaccines and autism symptoms.”

The CDC denies this finding.

Does anyone else think the MMR vaccine could be a candidate?

It may be over diagnosed. It is certainly overused by people who know nothing. If you met a genuinely autistic person, you'd probably assume they were mentally retarded due to how strongly the symptoms inhibit natural social interaction.

"Autism symptoms", I realized I'm not even sure what those are, so I looked them up, and it appears that anyone who is not a generic perfect person (someone who is socially outgoing, well spoken, wholly considerate of others, and does not say or do unusual things) is autistic, to some extent. I think in the city I live in well over half of the population is moderately to very autistic. Who knew that all we had to was put other people's shit inside of us and all of the sudden we'd become normal, well balanced people with great vocabularies and people skills?
