Wondrous Roots Radio Notes January 6, 2018 - Buyer Beware!


‚ÄčSATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 2018 – Prescription dangers – BUYER BEWARE!  Bone-density promoting drugs such as Boniva and Fosamax, not only bad for your bones but bad for your overall health.  Commonly used antibiotics such as CIPRO – the FDA itself has issued a stern warning about these drugs. 


Study reveals how standard drug treatment for preventing bone fractures in people with osteoporosis actually INCREASES risk of fracture, prolongs recovery


And the dangers of drugs such as Fosamax, Boniva, and Actonel don't stop there - a remarkably higher risk of throat cancer in those who filled 10 or more prescriptions!


"It took the FDA decades to recognize the serious and potentially irreversible side effects of Cipro and Levaquin antibiotics. We hope the new warning works."

The pot-puffing residents of California only had a few days to enjoy a new legal regime for recreational cannabis in their state before the Trump administration pulled the rug out.
The Associated Press reports that US attorney general Jeff Sessions will close off the legal gray area that has allowed legal marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes to flourish in more than half of US states. Tomorrow (Jan. 5), he plans to rescind a directive to federal prosecutors, called the Cole Memo, that urged them not to prosecute state-sanctioned cannabis production and distribution.

 "Natural medicine doesn't just involve "nutraceuticals," but extends to modalities like yoga and acupuncturethat an increasing body of peer-reviewed research shows can be superior to drugs."
