The Worlds Rich needs Money the rest of us get the Swine Flu

Swine Flu?… what happened to SARS and the Bird Flu? I’ve started to notice a pattern that the worlds rich follows as they move in and out of money. Donald Rumsfeld the one time Secretary of Defense owns Tamiflu stock. They need the stock market to make money.

We, the rest of us get to suffer so they can make money. Cause a disease that helps to control the population. AIDS, Bird Flu, SARS, Swine Flu, Cancer, Obesity, Drug addiction, all provided (Shoved down our collective throats) by the drug, medical and foods professions.

I really think that by the time I die the planet will be completely paved and every drop of rain the earth will receive will be laced with Prozac and Hillybilly heroin and the ocean will have waves of plastics lapping up on cement covered beaches.

Acupuncture Eases Radiation-induced Dry Mouth In Cancer Patients

Twice weekly acupuncture treatments relieve debilitating symptoms of xerostomia – severe dry mouth – among patients treated with radiation for head and neck cancer, researchers from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center report in the current online issue of Head & Neck.

Xerostomia develops after the salivary glands have been exposed to repeated doses of therapeutic radiation. People who have cancers of the head and neck typically receive large cumulative doses, rendering the salivary glands incapable of producing adequate saliva, said Mark S. Chambers, M.S., D.M.D., a professor in the Department of Dental Oncology. Saliva substitutes, lozenges and chewing gum bring only temporary relief, and the commonly prescribed medication, pilocarpine, has short-lived benefits and bothersome side effects of its own.

“The quality of life in patients with radiation-induced xerostomia is profoundly impaired,” said Chambers, the study’s senior author. “Symptoms can include altered taste acuity, dental decay, infections of the tissues of the mouth, and difficulty with speaking, eating and swallowing. Conventional treatments have been less than optimal, providing short-term response at best.”

M. Kay Garcia, LAc, Dr.P.H., a clinical nurse specialist and acupuncturist in M. D. Anderson’s Integrative Medicine Program and the study’s first author, noted that patients with xerostomia may also develop nutritional deficits that can become irreversible.
