ASA rules fake autism ‘cure’ ads must stop

But there is no scientific evidence for any link between vaccines and autism, and experts say Cease therapy is potentially harmful. ‘Really harmful’ Prof Nicola Martin, from London South Bank University, advised the Westminster Commission on autism and said Cease therapy was “based on no scientific foundation whatsoever”. “It talks about curing autism; autism is not a disease and not something which needs to be cured. “Psychologically it’s really harmful to give parents the idea that the way to love and nurture their autistic child is to try and cure their autism.” Cease therapists recommend giving autistic children four to five times more …

Women raise concerns about breast implant safety

(CNN)Panel members in a two-day public hearing held by the US Food and Drug Administration this week agreed that efforts should be made to better inform patients about the risks and benefits of breast implants.

This billboard for a sex toy is actually a brilliant message about women’s empowerment.

People tend to think of Canada as a progressive oasis and for good reason: quality health care, beautiful environmental landscapes and a general attitude of inclusion and tolerance are all very Canadian things. Of course, nobody is perfect and it turns out that Canada has some fairly regressive attitudes when it comes to women talking about sex in public. But one company has countered that narrative and is making a huge splash with their new billboard that contains an unmistakable message of female empowerment.

‘Before you know it, it’s not a big deal to kill a man’: Norwegian black metal’s murderous past

Arkansas bill pushes to ban abortion in Down syndrome cases

(CNN) A bill that would prohibit abortions after tests indicate that a fetus may have Down syndrome overwhelmingly cleared the Arkansas state Senate and is now under consideration in the state House. Under the proposed law, a physician would have to inform patients of the law, ask a pregnant woman if she is aware of test results, and request medical records.
