Most people don't realize that we are using a particular sort of money at the moment. We are using a debt-based money. That is, virtually all free money that is used in industrialized countries at the moment only exists because somebody has borrowed it. So, for example, if you have paid off all your debts, you don't owe anything on your house or your car, you don't owe anything to the bank and you've got a positive bank balance, then you have money because someone somewhere has borrowed that money and he's paying interest on it.

Killer Coke

In the summer of 2003 Coca-Cola hit the Indian headlines after it was revealed that traces of fertilizer far in excess of acceptable limits had been found by the Centre for Science and Environment in Coke's products. Sales of its soft drinks declined across India as accusations of consumer poisoning and counter accusations of sloppy science were traded in the pages of the major Indian newspapers. That was when Indian journalists began to take an interest in Plachimada. Although the locals had been complaining for two years that the bottling plant adjacent to their village was destroying their livelihoods, their complaints had, until the national 'fertilizer in soft drinks' scare broke, largely fallen on deaf ears.

We live in a world awash with legally available substances that maim, kill and cause havoc, cigarettes and alcohol being only the two most obvious examples.

Fast-food outlets make billions of pounds selling products saturated in fat, salt and empty calories that contribute to the epidemic of obesity and diabetes now threatening to overwhelm our health service.

Writing in the British Medical Journal, researchers from Birmingham University said the mistake could mean patients were put on lifelong medication.

Posted on Sat, Apr. 10, 2004

For years, chemotherapy patients who complained of memory problems -- or so-called "chemo brain" -- were told it was all in their head. But new research shows that chemo brain is real.

Although cognitive complaints following chemotherapy have often been written off to depression, anxiety and even menopause, doctors now know that chemotherapy can trigger real, and sometimes lasting, changes in a patient's brain.
