  • The Chapter about Pharma Wars

    "Those who bought drugs other than male enhancement pills almost universally said they responded to prescription drug spam either because they had no health insurance, or because the same drugs available under their health plans cost two to five times as much as the drugs offered via these legitimate-looking Canadian pharmacy sites."

    "The researchers discovered that U.S. customers selected non-lifestyle items 33 percent of the time. In contrast, Canadian and Western European customers almost always bought drugs in the lifestyle category—only 8 percent of the items placed in their shopping carts were non-lifestyle items. In other words, many more Americans were turning to these spam pharmacies for prescription drugs to treat critical medical conditions, not to increase their comfort or enjoyment of life."

    etc.

    • Scientists Have Confirmed a New DNA Structure Inside Human Cells

      Earlier this year, scientists identified the existence of a brand new DNA structure never before seen in living cells. That's right, it's not just the double helix.
      The discovery of what's described as a 'twisted knot' of DNA in living cells confirms our complex genetic code is crafted with more intricate symmetry than just the double helix structure everybody associates with DNA. Importantly, the forms these molecular variants take affect how our biology functions.

      • Down syndrome sufferers could join black rhino on endangered species list, advocates launch campaign



        With genetic screening lowering the prevalence of Down syndrome around the world, one Canadian advocacy group wants to add sufferers to the endangered species list - alongside the black rhino and the Asian elephant.
        Humanity is on the verge of eradicating Down syndrome, should we decide to. Fewer people are born with the syndrome in the United States than researchers previously estimated, and prenatal screening coupled with easy access to abortion has led Iceland to all but eliminate the condition. In France, 77 percent of fetuses with Down syndrome are aborted, while in Denmark that figure is at 98 percent.
        Iceland’s success has attracted controversy, as advocates compare the country’s near-blanket termination rate to genocide. Now, a group of Canadian activists want to place people with Down syndrome on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) threatened species list.
