Chuck Norris is suing 11 drug companies after he claims they poisoned his wife.

Norris has filed lawsuits to no less than 11 drug companies after the treatment he says his wife received left her close to death.
His wife Gena had gone in for routine MRI scans, but the dye that was used to make her scans ‘clearer’ poisoned her with devastating results.
Norris claims that his wife has suffered years of problems stemming from the gadolinium which is in the dyes, made by several companies including GBMCA manufacturers ACIST Medical Systems inc., Bracco S.p.A., and McKesson Corporation.
The Daily Mail has reported that Gena received three MRI scans in one week ‘several’ years ago, and has since experienced permanent weakness, exhaustion, bouts of pain, cognitive issues and a burning feeling which she attributes to the chemical gadolinium which is in the dye.
Because of the damage done to Gena, she has had to undergo stem cell therapy to help her with the problems that she has with her nervous system, which has also set them back $2 million in medical fees.
Gadolinium is a heavy metal, and while the health professionals say that it is safe to be injected into the blood stream, there are fears that the metal stays in the blood for years afterwards, and this is what causes the problems.
Gena’s condition is known as Gadolinium Deposition Disease and is a rare side effect of being injected with gadolinium.
Gena said:  
“Unfortunately, litigation is the only course of action we can take to hold the drug companies accountable for threatening the lives of so many innocent people who undergo MRIs.
‘These companies continue to say that there is no link between gadolinium and adverse events, even though the evidence is overwhelming that this heavy metal stays in the body for years, rather than hours.'”

Hemp is one of the most versatile materials in the world.

Despite its ‘illegal’ status, hemp is an ever increasingly popular material and uses range from making socks to building houses.
Hemp is illegal to grow in the U.S since 1970 due to its ties with the marijuana industry, like cannabis, hemp creates a ‘high’ when smoked and so was criminalized by the Controlled Substances Act.
But hemp is now undergoing a resurgence and some states have now made it legal to crow for cultivation thanks to its amazing building and fabric qualities.
In the 1970’s when interest in hemp was at it’s highest, the decoricator was invented. This machine makes it easy to turn the fibers from hemp into textiles, clothing, paper, and plastic.
‘Popular Mechanics’ reported that during this time “10,000 acres devoted to hemp will produce as much paper as 40,000 acres of average [forest] pulp land.”
Hemp can be used as a dietary supplement to get more essential amino acids into your diet, and it has high levels of the nutrient omega-3.
Hemp is very easy to grow and on average from being planted to being harvest takes only around six months. It is said if hemp was legal, every one could grow their own in their back garden, that’s how easy it is.
They can grow successfully without any pesticides or synthetic chemicals, meaning it is better for the environment than other crops, and its thick roots improves nitrogen flow in the soil, fertilizing the land better.
Aside from producing versatile textile materials, hemp can even be used to build houses with. Its strong fibers create excellent building materials such as ‘hempcrete‘ which is stronger and tougher than concrete. These materials don’t rot, are non toxic and are kind to the environment.
George Washington himself said “Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.”

‘Dog Whisperer’ Cesar Millan reveals suicide hell.

He is one of the most recognizable TV pet personalities, but Cesar Millan has shared the struggles of when his life was at its lowest ebb.
Despite his television success, back in 2010 a number of family and work tragedies struck him to the point where he felt he could no longer go on.
His wife of 16 years filed for divorce, something which his sons blamed him for, a number of bad business deals threatened to bankrupt him and worst of all, his canine companion ‘Daddy’ lost his battle with cancer.
Everything seemed to come crashing down on him and like many others when things seem this bleak, his mind turned to suicidal thoughts.
Millan has shared the story of his darkest time with NBC news, where he talks about his struggle and attempted suicide.
He says he took a bunch of pills including Xanax, in the hope that he wouldn’t wake up. Thankfully he did, and his response on realizing his attempt had failed, changed his outlook on life.

On waking, he said to himself:
“I better get back to work!” and “I couldn’t have done what I do without Daddy,” he said, “and now I can’t do it without Junior. There’s always a pit bull there supporting me.”
He has attributed his strong work ethic to his remarkable recovery out of depression, and says he feels lucky to have been able to do so.
He said:
“Some people turn to cigarettes and alcohol when they have problems,” “I use hard work.”

He reiterates the importance of picking yourself up and carrying on after a dark time such as this, he said “You hear this sentence, ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,’” “That became real for me. It made me closer to people.”

USDA approves bizarre rule to ship un-labeled chicken to the U.S.

China is where many of our products originate, but soon our chicken will originate in the U.S, be shipped to China for processing, and then be shipped back again.
The USDA have approved U.S reared chicken to be shipped over to China, where companies will get a cheaper deal on the processing of the chicken, and then be shipped back over again, all as a cost cutting measure.
The chicken will be processed in Chinese factories without U.S officials present, and then when it is shipped back, will not require a country of origin label.
The whole process means that confusion between U.S chicken and imported foreign meat will be impossible to determine, and this has raised fears due to previous problems with Chinese meat and avian influenza and food-borne illnesses.
The very fact that it is cheaper to ship and process chicken in China than in the U.S really makes you wonder just how cheap the Chinese labor force is, and how the standards are upheld in accordance with this.
Tom Super, spokesman for the National Chicken Council said in an interview:
“Economically, it doesn’t make much sense, think about it: A Chinese company would have to purchase frozen chicken in the U.S., pay to ship it 7,000 miles, unload it, transport it to a processing plant, unpack it, cut it up, process/cook it, freeze it, repack it, transport it back to a port, then ship it another 7,000 miles. I don’t know how anyone could make a profit doing that.”
However dubious the process sounds, it does work, as the same procedure is being used for U.S seafood.
Charles Bundrant, founder of Trident, who ship much of their caught seafood to China for processing said:
“There are 36 pin bones in a salmon and the best way to remove them is by hand,”and “Something that would cost us $1 per pound labor here, they get it done for 20 cents in China.”
