Canadian Pharmacies - Setting the Record Strait About Safety

11 Jul: Canadian Pharmacies — Setting the Record Strait About Safety

However, the federal government for the United States uses plenty of scare tactics in an attempt to make American citizens steer clear of foreign drugs, even going so far as making it illegal to buy drugs from international sources.

02 Jul: Prayer, Pain & Pills: Is Taking Medicine a Sin?

Thou Shalt Not Take Medicine: The 11th Commandment? Answering the question whether Christians should take prescription medicine doesn’t seem like it should be complicated. Yet Christians have found themselves in four separate schools of thought: Taking medicine is a sin because it shows a lack of faith in God.
