Fake high blood pressure news
Mainstream doctors are quick to prescribe drugs to bring high blood pressure down.  They may put you on one, two or even three of Big Pharma’s drugs. They include diuretics, beta-blockers, and calcium channel blockers.   These drugs have serious side effects. I’m talking about things like edema, dizziness, nose bleeds, rash and hearing loss. They can lead to cardiac failure, heart attack, depression, colitis, and arthritis pain.  It’s bad enough risking those side effects if you have to. But your doctor may be giving you these pills for NO good reason. You mi...

BYU Now Sells Caffeinated Soda On Campus and People Are Freaking Out
Brigham Young University has ended a decades-long policy barring caffeinated soft drinks from its campus. To those unfamiliar with the practices of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that may not seem like a big deal. But to Mormons, students and alumni, the decision is so earth-shattering that some on social media have come to the conclusion that the end of the world must indeed be near. BYU, which is owned by the Church, will now serve sodas on its Provo, Utah, campus as a result of increased demand, perhaps due to clarifications over what drinks can be consumed by members of the Church.
