  1. Diabetes drug for weight loss is a ride on the Vomit Comet

    Big Pharma weight-loss plan will make you puke

    You're pedaling away on that exercise bike like a 12-year-old with the world's longest paper route. You've logged so many hours on the rowing machine that you ought to be a Navy captain by now.

    Remember the good ol' days when all you'd find at the health club was a set of barbells and a couple of medicine balls? Today's gyms look like a tacky amusement park with just about every mechanical contraption you could imagine -- and folks like you are shelling out hundreds a month in admission, just so you can fit into your old blue jeans again.

    Now it looks like Big Pharma wants in on the fad. They're adding a hot new ride to the weight loss theme park, and it's coming soon to a doctor's office near you.

    It's called the Vomit Comet -- and the price of admission is just one tiny injection (and a couple of harrowing potential side effects).

    A new British study is recommending the nauseating diabetes drug liraglutide (you probably know it as Victoza) for folks like you who are looking to win the war on flab. They've even got a hot new study claiming that if you take TWICE as much Victoza as we hand out to diabetics, you could be emptying those annoying saddle bags in no time.

    Well, these mainstream monkeys would probably come out in favor of bulimia, too, if they could figure out a way to charge you for it. Because some people starting on Victoza injections quickly find out that they might as well just stick their fingers down their throats.

    Trust me, there are plenty of diabetes patients out there who'd love to tell you about the wonders of Victoza -- if they could ever get out of the bathroom. The drug has been linked to nausea, vomiting and diarrhea – not to mention headaches and agonizing sore throats.

    How's that for a sales pitch, my friend? You could be pooping and puking your way to a hot new beach body. And even if you develop an interest in food, good luck swallowing it.

    And for all the misery Victoza is unleashing around the world, guess how much weight you're going to lose? Fifty pounds? A hundred?

    Try a couple pounds a month. It's not exactly giving Jane Fonda or Richard Simmons a run for their money, is it?

    For all the talk about complicated science and clinical trials that go into drug development, there are only two questions any Big Pharma research-and-development team ever REALLY asks.

    1. How do we sell this drug to people who need it?
    2. How do we sell this drug to people who don't?

    And it looks like the folks marketing Victoza have moved on to Phase 2. So if you're relying on this vomit in a vial to shrink that spare tire, let me give you some unvarnished truth you'll never hear the mainstream admit.

    Fat chance.

  2. FDA pushes Tamiflu on babies

    Dangerous drug approved for infants

    Tamiflu is a phony-baloney flu drug that barely works -- if at all -- and even the mainstream is starting to acknowledge that it could be a big, fat fraud.

    But not the FDA!

    Nope, the agency that's supposed to protect consumers from shady meds like Tamiflu is actually expanding it to the very patients who could be hurt the most by its potentially horrific side effects.

    Babies -- specifically infants, as the FDA has now approved Tamiflu for use in kids under the age of one despite the fact that it's already been associated with bizarre psychological side effects in kids and teens, including hallucinations, delirium, and wacked-out behavior.

    The feds say not to worry -- those side effects didn't turn up in studies on babies.

    First, what sicko is running Tamiflu experiments on babies anyway??? And second, those studies prove nothing. How can you tell if a baby is hallucinating? You can't ask the kid.

    Well, you can. Just don't expect a well-articulated answer.

    All they can do is cry -- and since babies with flu are probably crying most of the time already, it's not going to draw much notice.

    Beyond the potential for psychological damage, there's also the risk of serious physical problems. In the studies, for example, the most common side effects included vomiting and diarrhea -- conditions that can lead to dehydration and even death in babies.

    Listen, there are few things more serious than a baby sick with the flu. It can be an extreme medical emergency, and one you need to get help with fast.

    Just make sure that help doesn't include Tamiflu.

  3. A shot in the dark

    No matter what you've heard, the correct number of HPV vaccinations needed by any girl -- or boy, for that matter -- is ZERO.
  4. Mommy issues

    But in a twisted experiment that never should have made it past an ethics committee, researchers pumped 8-year-old girls full of the diabetes drug metformin for four years to see how it would affect their fertility later on.
