HEPARIN HAS KILLED MANY PATIENTS …

The FDA reports additional patient deaths are possibly linked to the blood thinner heparin so the company is mounting a recall of all of the drug.

Baxter International Inc. will recall the remaining lots of single and multi-dose injection and it will recall HEP-LOCK products.

Last month, Baxter recalled nine lots of heparin multi-dose after the drug’s use was linked to four deaths and hundreds of mysterious allergic reactions.

Now 17 other deaths are being investigated because of a link to heparin, although the FDA reminds reporters that those patients were already very sick so a definitive cause-effect at this time has not been established.

Well a cause has now been found, the heparin was contaminated….. and maybe this didn’t happen accidentally…………

New Low In Treatment of Iraq Vets

1-injured-soldier.jpg

When the war broke out, we were told to just go shopping, and leave the mess to the professionals.

Increasingly, in order to recruit those professionals, the government has had to be inventive. One of the incentives has been a sign up bonus of up to $30,000.

But the U.S. Military is now demanding that thousands of wounded service personnel give back the signing bonuses because they are unable to serve out their commitments. This is because they have been injured in battle, and are unable to complete their commitment.

Read the rest of how SHAMEFUL WE TREAT THESE WAR VETERANS HERE…….

90 suicides a day in Japan

suicide_rates_map1.jpg

Japan is approaching its tenth successive year in which more than 30,000 people have taken their own lives.

The statistic gives Japan a higher per-capita rate than nations blighted by civil war, desperate poverty or long periods of the year without sunlight.

More than 30.000 suicides a year. Blimey.

NEW DELHI, Nov. 7: US President George W Bush today came under severe attack from the CPI-M, which described him as a “fool” for comparing Russian leader Lenin with the likes of Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler.

“He (George Bush) is a fool. I have heard that a few days ago he said Lenin, Hitler and Osama Bin Laden were alike,” CPI-M general secretary Mr Prakash Karat said addressing a function here to commemorate the 90th anniversary of Russia’s 1917 October Revolution.
