“Pharmaceutical Kratom” Real Reason For Kratom Ban? New Opioid “MGM-15” Derived From Mitragynine

What is the true motivation behind the DEA’s decision to ban kratom? Could it be the fact that enormous swathes of researchers are trying to develop synthetic opioids, patentable, profitable drugs to replace such things as kratom or pharmaceutical painkillers? Three synthetic opioids in particular were synthesized from the alkaloids in kratom from 2008- 2016: MGM-9, MGM-15, and MGM-16. They were synthesized …

Martha Rosenberg – What Big Pharma Does Not Want You to Know About the Opioid Epidemic

The prescription opioid epidemic is not new. It began when Pharma rolled out and aggressively marketed time-released opioids like Oxycontin, driving “pill mills” that distributed as many as 9 million [3] Oxys in a six-month span.

What Women Must Know – The Healing Power of Curcumin with Dr. Ajay Goel, PhD – 02.18.16

Ajay Goel PhD is the Director of Epigenetics, Cancer Prevention, and Cancer Genomics at Baylor University Medical Center in Texas.

Dr. Goel has spent 20 years researching cancer and has been the lead author or contributor to over 100 scientific articles published in peer reviewed international journals and several book chapters. He is currently researching the prevention of gastrointestinal cancers using integrative and alternative approaches, including botanical products. Two of the primary botanicals he is investigating are curcumin (from turmeric) and boswellia.

His published clinical trial on major depressive disorder (MDD) showed that a highly potent curcumin extract equaled the effects of the prescription drug fluoxetine (Prozac) without the adverse effects. And his studies on rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis showed potent botanicals to be better for relieving pain and lowering joint line tenderness than the commonly prescribed prescription medications.

Another recent cancer study by Dr. Goel shows the benefits of combining chemotherapy with a special form of highly-absorbable curcumin to improve treatment. The curcumin not only sensitized the cancer cells to the effects of but also protected healthy cells. “Our research found that curcumin was able to ignite the body’s own tumor suppression activity to keep a cancerous tumor from growing and spreading,” said Dr. Goel. On a cellular level, the curcumin kills DNA MMR defective cells that promote cancer growth.

Goel’s research has applications for other diseases. At the cellular level, inflammation is the cause of virtually every disease state in the body. His research with depression and arthritis shows that targeting inflammation has huge benefits for people with these conditions.

Dr. Goel is a member of the American Association for Cancer Research and the American Gastroenterology Association and is on the international editorial boards of World Journal of Gastroenterology and World Journal of Gastrointestinal Oncology. He also performs peer-reviewing activities for almost 50 scientific journals, as well serves on various grant funding committees of the National Institutes of Health.

Report: Number of US heroin users rose 300,000 over a decade By Mike Stobbe

It’s based on annual face-to-face surveys of about 67,000 Americans—the government’s main source of data on use of illegal drugs. In recent surveys, nearly 3 in every 1,000 Americans said they used heroin in …
