October is Breast Cancer Propaganda Month: Pinkwashing, Breast Cancer Action and Vitamin D

10/11/2007 - You've already seen the headlines touting October as breast cancer awareness month.

Health roundup: Organ harvesting, kidney profits and Haitian headhunters (satire)

3/24/2006 - Further demonstrating that U.S. doctors are, indeed, mad, two doctors are now publicly promoting the idea that it should be legal for people to sell their own kidneys (and other organs) to patients needing transplants.

The science says ban soft drinks in schools, but the FDA support profits, not health

1/5/2004 2:25:18 PM - Kudos to doctors for pushing to ban soft drinks and fruit drinks in schools.

This is...
