WTH?????? Please read this!!!!

Hello to my fellow blog readers,

Over the past couple of weeks i have been tuned into some news reports that are being retelevised about how the

US may ban the sale of alcoholic drinks with caffeine kick.

Ok so I find something so totally wrong with this picture..How is it that we as a country will attempt to ban an alcoholic energy drink but we wont even take the time out to do the same with Prescription drugs. (that are doing just as much harm if not more)You know something somewhere is really warped.. Oh wait a minute I am sure the revenue generated by the perscription drug feild is greater than that of the so called Alcoholic drinks with caffeine. I am not against this ban but it does begs one to wonder why they (FDA) don't care about everything/everyone equally..
( Probably  because we as a people are just a number and when it comes to taking money out of someones pocket no one wants to listen)

So for your reading pleasure about this ban I will include the link below.

    Alittle more about Norplant

    As I was researching side effects of Norplant I ran across some interesting information on a website. The websites name is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norplant#Side_effects.
    The information shows the side effects of this particular drug and also gives info about lawsuits assoicated with this drug. If you scroll down you will read how this drug was discontinued in the United States.  However there are other area's of the world such as in Bangladesh who still use this particular method of birth control. According to one study 6.2 out of 100 rural women interviewed in one region in Bangladesh use the device. Yet there was an overwhelming number of lawsuits against this drug here in the US. I understand that we no longer are able to get this particular form of birth control but what about all those out there who arent here in the US and are dying or suffering so very badly. What about them?? See this information that is in the above website is exactly what I am talking about. When I say we as women need to educate ourselves before we become one of those statistics in some lawsuit.

    As Always Love You All
    God Bless You!!!

    Blog update as of 6/5/2011

    Hello All,
    After a month of the blog being availble to the public we have reached over 600 people and are in 9 countries or so. I am currently working on some ways to get program out into the hospital system to have classes offered.

    Today after service at church I went up to ask for some prayer for my project and give a praise report. This is being done today not by me but by God. I take no credit for what is currently being accomplished nor he outcome that will be. I am just priviledged to go along for the ride.. I have currently started to get requests for drugs that are not birth control related. So over the next couple of weeks you will be seeing other drugs that you or someone you know maybe taking... As more developes with my project and the cause I will give updates along the way.

    Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
     Heb 11:1

    Love you all and God bless you!!!
