Pycnogenol Improves Symptoms of Menopause
Menopause is a normal change for women that typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 years. Menopause is diagnosed after the menstrual period has been absent for one year. Symptoms prior to menopause, or perimenopause, include hot flashes, night sweats, menstrual irregularities, vaginal dryness, dyspareunia, mild urinary incontinence, mood changes, cognitive changes and sleep changes. Currently, it is estimated that 37.5 million women are reaching or currently beginning menopause. Symptoms of perimenopause can have a considerable impact on the quality of life for some women, which is why many women seek alternative treatments. Recent research has shown that Pycnogenol, an extract from pine bark, is helpful in alleviating the symptoms of perimenopause.

Pharma "Business with Disease" News

May 2, 2012

Physician, heal thyself
As inflation spirals in Pakistan, the one most seriously affected is the common man. Decent healthcare is said to be beyond the reach of the overwhelming majority. But one man’s meat is another man’s poison and some are benefiting from the misery of the poor. One beneficiary of this state of affairs is the pharmaceutical sector.

Comment: With some of its physicians now hand in glove with the Pharma Cartel and exploiting the country’s poor, Pakistan is rapidly becoming subject to the same corrupting principles that the Business with Disease has already used to fuel its multi-billion dollar growth throughout much of the rest of the world.

Now, through sheer wealth-driven clout, his plan to reduce world hunger has found a rapt audience in the United Nations food agencies.

Comment: Using an approach becoming known as Philanthrocapitalism that essentially copies a model designed by John D. Rockefeller a century earlier, the Gates Foundations investments have included stockholdings in multi-billion dollar drug companies and other corporations that have been criticized for worsening poverty, heavy pollution or unethical practices.

In austere times, EU to discuss 6.8 pct budget rise
European Commission plans risk government backlash
The European Commission will risk accusations of double standards on Wednesday when it proposes a 6.8 percent increase in the European Union's budget next year despite calls for fiscal discipline across the bloc. A draft EU document shows the executive will seek an increase of 138 billion euros ($181 billion). The Commission says the budget increase is needed to meet prior EU payment commitments, but such a rise is sensitive given it has led calls over the past two years for EU governments to slash public spending to bring the euro zone's debt crisis under control.
