June 25, 2012 | GovernmentAbuse | M.Torres
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is supposed to have the authority to regulate or ban toxic substances, but they simply do not have the power. In practice, the agency faces so many hurdles that it hasn’t tried to ban any chemicals since it made an ill-fated run at asbestos in 1991. This year, the EPA has identified 83 "chemicals of concern," however any assessments will remain on a computer hard drive without ever leading to any kind of ban or enforcement to restrict those chemicals.

How Flawed And Outdated Is The Body Mass Index (BMI) Measurement?
June 18, 2012 | YourWeight | T.McKenzie
The body mass index (BMI) is a poor measurement and a controversially inaccurate indicator to assess health. Despite this reality, almost every doctor is still trained in this useless analytical tool which is meant to provide a heuristic proxy for human body fat based on an individual's weight and height. The problem is, BMI doesn't actually measure percentage body fat or lean muscle tissue and makes absolutely no distinction between either of them.

How Real Is The Science Behind Snake Oil?
June 13, 2012 | JunkScience | S.Weiss
Regardless of the merits of the scientific method in the analysis of the exterior world, it is still open to many forms of abuse. It is always important to remember the results of any particular study mean nothing unless proven through continual repetition of the study's methodology. The importance of being able to replicate results is something instilled in every elementary school science student and yet as we enter adulthood we often tend to take with a great deal of faith any professions of scientific knowledge. Have you seen the data? Science is built on skepticism.

Canada and U.S. Refuse To Ban This Food Produced By Animal Torture
June 12, 2012 | GovernmentAbuse | N.Longo
Readers who follow my work know I consistently strive to promote foods specifically to those who are eaters for health. I don't shy away from any specific foods unless they are consistently proven to either be harmful for health or abusive to life itself. Although that invariably comes down to perception, Foie Gras ("fatty liver") is one of those foods I refuse to acknowledge as consumable. The production of this "delicacy" is simply animal torture. It requires geese or ducks to be forced fed until their livers become fatty. Despite 15 countries banning its production, Canada and the United States refuse to join those nations in banning this atrocity to animals.

8 Glasses of Water Invented By Plastic Water Bottle Companies With Vested Interests
June 10, 2012 | JunkScience | A.McCarthy
There has never been any supporting evidence to back up the popular recommendation to drink 8 glasses of water per day. In an editorial for the June issue of Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health, Dr. Spero Tsindos from La Trobe University says most people get enough water from the foods and beverages -- including tea and coffee. Humans need about two litres of fluids per day -- not two litres of water specifically. He even takes his message a step further by suggesting the eight-glass-a-day rule is a myth invented by plastic water bottle companies who have made it fashionable to tote around what he says have become ubiquitous accessories.

The Chinese have successfully used acupuncture for 2500 years for many different ailments. For untold millenia African tribes have employed hallucinogens pharmacologically to stimulate the central nervous system and treat hundreds of disorders.
