<P>hospital bans herbs and supplements</P>

<P>If a family at the Children Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) wants to give their child something other than doctor prescribed medication be it a vitamin, mineral, extract or herbal supplement they have to obtain and administer it themselves, after first notifying a doctor and signing a waiveracknowledging the risk they incur by doing so.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The new policy, put into effect last month, removes most dietary supplements from the hospital list of approved medicines, . Mainly, this is because they not medicines at least not in the eyes of the Food and Drug Administration, which regulates them as foods. As such, according to the hospital, they guarantee their safety and effectiveness. A recent study used DNA testing to discover that many herbal supplements are fake and some even contain toxic substances.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Commonly used supplements included in the ban include melatonin, echinacea, chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine, CoEnzyme Q10, milk thistle, and probiotics. According to a member of the hospital Therapeutic Standards Committee, these medications particularly to children with serious health complications is unethical when the risks are unknown, and when there are alternative www.bruinsofficialprostore.com/Authentic-Zdeno-Chara-Jersey treatments that have been proven in clinical trials to be safe and effective.

Pharmacopeial Convention and further confirmed by the hospital.</P>

<P>The Natural Products Association, in a letter to the hospital, called the ban and Offit crusade against the dietary supplement industry</P>

<P>Pope Francis</P>
<P></P>
<P>The new pope immediately made his mark by saying of homosexual members of the clergy, "Who am I to judge?" And the pope's recent reshuffling of the Congregation of Bishops, which included the replacement of the conservative Cardinal Raymond Burke (who once threatened to deny Communion to John Kerry), is an encouraging sign that Francis intends to lead with action and not just words. While it's more than fair for liberals to remain unhappy with the church's official position on LGBT rights and abortion (as well as letting women into the clergy) with his greater focus on an evangelizing church that focuses on issues of poverty and inequality, Francis has www.bruinsofficialprostore.com/Authentic-Jarome-Iginla-Jersey already proven to be a dramatic and welcome shift from his predecessors.</P>

<P>Bill de Blasio</P>
<P></P>
<P>New York City's incoming mayor ran the kind of populist and liberal campaign of a progressive's dreams by maintaining a laser focus on economic inequality and improving the NYPD's atrocious record on civil rights. His TV ad featuring his son, Dante, was far and away the best and most important political advertisement of the year, helping to ensure that for the first time in decades, one of America's most liberal cities will be governed by a real progressive. Senate, the liberal icon nevertheless continued to do yeoman's work, keeping the pressure on Wall Street and defending the values of economic inclusion and community in her speeches around the country and on the Senate floor. Despite working in a do nothing Congress, Warren's been pushing for progressive policy, too. Her recently introduced bill banning credit background checks of prospective employees is the kind of smart and fearless liberalism that's made her such a hero.</P>
