  • Anxiety – Are You Self-Medicating with Alcohol? - Self-medicating with alcohol is never a good idea, whether it is anxiety or any other issue you may have.

  • Many Americans May Be Addicted to Opiates - Sounds scary, doesn’t it?

In 2003, Professor John Banzhaf drew parallels between food manufacturers’ practices and techniques used by cigarette companies to deny culpability for making tobacco more addictive. Banzhaf… Continue Reading
