The scourge of political correctness spreads across the pond

Dear Friend,

If anything has been made dreadfully obvious in this election year, it's that political correctness is rampant throughout our country. But this PC BS is not a uniquely American ailment. And I have a glaring example to show you that as the PC culture helps America swirl down the drain, we'll at least have some company on the ride.

The madness of PC nonsense has spread overseas and is infecting other cultures, notably Great Britain (I think they should call it "Once Great Britain"). Recently, a school in the English village of Clacton in Essex, just east of London, posted a school newsletter on the Internet. It was a nice little presentation, complete with photos of the children doing school activities in the classroom, and on the playground playing sports. But, in an effort to "protect the identity of the children," their faces were obscured in the pictures by little cartoon smiley faces.

If you ask me, this type of thing is a little nutty and even more paranoid than I thought people could get. And that's not just my opinion. Even the British National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) weighed in on the issue, saying that the school was off the mark with this action.

An official from the British Campaign for Real Education put it succinctly: "It seems like another example where political correctness is overcoming good sense."

Well, using logic like that doesn't work with the paranoid PC crowd. According to the head teacher at the school: "We have no problem with pictures going out in the newsletter or in the local paper as long as parents have given permission but the internet is wider... you can't say what is going to happen with any of those pictures."

Huh? So … the fact that more people had access to pictures of the kids' photos makes them more dangerous? More suggestive? More salacious? It seems pretty silly to me. I don't mind a little healthy paranoia – especially when it's in the name of protecting children. But it's the illogic of the PC-addled mind that drives me nuts. The obvious solution to this issue of protecting the children's identities was to have a newsletter WITH NO PHOTOGRAPHS. But to put in "photos" of students without faces is completely absurd. But that's political correctness at work.

When PC thought takes over, logic goes out the window. And that's true whatever country you're in.

The hidden cause of chronic pain...

Sure, painkillers like aspirin, ibuprofen...and other traditional
remedies can bring welcome relief. But prolonged use of drugs can
cause bleeding ulcers, liver damage...and other dangerous side
effects. And just like drugs, chiropractic and similar treatments
merely relieve the symptoms of chronic pain...but do nothing to
address its root cause.

And that's what makes Dr. Weisberg's program so different.
Because there are no drugs. No supplements. No special diets.
Just a simple, safe, and sure-fire three-minute program.

High cholesterol may extend lives for ALS patients

According to new research in France, elevated lipid levels can actually extend the lives of patients who with ALS, more popularly known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease."

The researchers discovered that ALS patients may live longer when they have a higher ratio of "bad" LDL cholesterol to the so-called "good" HDL cholesterol.

This is consistent with a previous study that showed that when mice with the disease were fed a high-fat diet, they survived longer. This should come as no shock since humans actually NEED cholesterol (even the so-called "bad" form of LDL) to survive.

"These results raise the question of using a fat diet for ALS patients," Meininger said, also questioning if use of cholesterol-lowering drugs such as statins should be discontinued for patients being treated for ALS.

To me, this sounds like a recipe for better health for everyone, whether you're suffering from ALS or not.
