Case in point: The Centers for Disease Control confirmed earlier today that the average life expectancy at birth declined in 2016 for the second consecutive year - the first multiyear decline since 1963, when a flu epidemic led to a rash of deaths as hundreds of thousands of elderly Americans succumbed to the virus. The increase has been fueled by a 21% rise in...

In fact, a record-number 129 people have passed from overdoses in 2017 - and that number is expected to climb through the holiday season.

A new medical breakthrough in southern Russia could hold the key in solving America’s opioid epidemic. Scientists at Volgograd Sate Medical University are launching clinical trials into a pain-killing drug which outperforms morphine, and does not cause addiction. This would be a big step in the right direction, as the crisis in the United States spirals out-of-control.

Another Monsanto Pesticide Draws Fire As Farmers Break Out In Rashes

Poor Monsanto just can't catch a break these days.  Just yesterday we noted that Monsanto's RoundUp replacement, Dicamba, was causing outrage in the ag community as state regulators all across the country were suddenly being flooded with reports from farmers saying the product is increasingly becoming airborne and killing crops far away from the fields where they were actually applied.  Ironically, farmers don't like their livelihood being wiped out by a neighbor's spray drift...go figure....

Demographic Dysphoria Looms As Scientists Discover Sulfur Dioxide Lowers Sperm Count

Back in June, we explained how a demographic dysphoria looms for Central Bankers as doctors discovered sperm counts in western men have plummeted nearly 60% over the last four decades. In an era of depopulation, Econimica’s Chris Hamiliton noted, the next business cycle recession will be unending and is very likely to run years into decades and perhaps a century or more. We also expanded on the idea of a declining population already indebted with record debt levels and zero interest rates is...
