Behold: the wondrous “concept of compromise.” After all, ethics must be decided by majority vote since in this postmodern world we have no common and accepted objective standards such as the Ten Commandments or the Word of God. So, we open doors with words like “but only for a very good reason” and “except under exceptional circumstances.” And suggest that animal-human hybrid embryos may not be good things, but . . . Who decides the exceptions? The scientists performing them. And yes, there are always exceptions, good exceptions, depending, of course, on what you mean by ‘good’.

Another study, performed at the Pennsylvania State University, assigned groups of men to a 12-week program of diet or both diet and exercise. The men who dieted and exercised (3 times per week for 50 minutes) lost only one pound of fat more than the men who only dieted (3).

The cost of care is weakening and it’s not just the fact that this is presented in five to six digits that gives such unpleasant feeling. Knowing that the price you must pay for year’s stay in a nursing home is equivalent to your retirement pay is a bitter pill to swallow.

HIPPA doesn’t interfere in the coverage offered by individual health insurance policy. If you are not offered the pregnancy coverage, don’t look for its help.

Now this young adult can’t be blamed as long-term care is almost always associated with the old and weak instead of the general public. Practically every single long-term care (LTC) advertisement and website features elderly couples only instead of incorporating images of young successful adults in the corporate world, and busy people crossing the streets seemingly unsuspecting of the dangers that challenging speeding cars can bring.
