Lawsuit targets secret Viagra pills sold at 51 San Diego stores

These pills, falsely sold as “all natural,” do not disclose that they contain Viagra. Viagra and similar prescription drugs can cause death or serious injury if taken without a doctor’s supervision.

Drug hidden in “all natural” supplements poses serious health risks; Legal campaign takes on retailers in several states

It’s a shadow pharmacy and these retailers are profiting off of harmful products they have no legal right to be selling.”

— Attorney Robert Tauler

SAN DIEGO, CALIF., USA, July 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A lawsuit filed in San Diego today kicks off a multi-state campaign to force stores to stop selling so-called “all-natural” men’s sexual performance pills that secretly contain sildenafil — Viagra — and other pharmaceutical drugs.

Gas stations, convenience markets, liquor and discount stores, and smoke shops throughout San Diego are among 51 retailers named in the lawsuit, filed in San Diego Superior Court on Tuesday (July 24). The shops were caught selling pills falsely labeled as “safe” and “all natural” dietary supplements, but actually contain sildenafil, and refused to remove them from their shelves. The products’ ingredient labels do not list the prescription-only drug, which distributors buy in huge quantities from Chinese laboratories for pennies per pill.

Using Viagra without a doctor’s supervision can result in serious penile injuries (blood clots and amputation, for instance,) heart attacks, stroke and vision problems. Men have died after taking “all natural” erectile dysfunction pills which they were led to believe contained only ginseng, cinnamon, goji berry, daisy root and parasitic caterpillar fungus.

This campaign to protect consumers is unique in that it’s pursing offenders using civil laws, instead of through criminal laws, where enforcement isn’t very effective.

The FDA sends out multiple warnings every year about these types of products, but manufacturers slip past regulators by simply changing the product names in the false belief that doing so will avoid liability, said Los Angeles attorney Robert Tauler, an expert in false advertising and tainted dietary supplements. “Our office has identified 20,000 name variations consistent with this scheme,” he said.

Houston-based Outlaw Laboratory LP makes competing products that meet strict FDA dietary supplement regulations. Outlaw Laboratory is suing the San Diego retailers for unfair competition and false advertising. California and federal laws allow competitors and customers to sue store owners for false advertising if products contain secret ingredients.

“It’s a shadow pharmacy and these retailers are profiting off of harmful products they have no legal right to be selling,” Tauler said. Retailers pay $1 per pill and sell them for about $10 each. “They’re putting people in danger and they are going to be held responsible. Our goal is to eliminate these products from the marketplace.”

Tauler, a principal at Tauler Smith LLP, is a nationally-recognized expert in adulterated health supplements and false advertising law.

She thanked Dr. Weinstein for 20 years of unwavering dedication and for spearheading a diverse and inclusive artistic education program.

Queens Boro President Melinda Katz proclaimed that "We need organizations like Shema Kolainu who say to the community, these are our kids, these are kids that will make a difference one day."

Former NYS Governor David Paterson commended "All of you who have cleaved together over this period of time, help young people and to get people to understand the difference between autism as is perceived and as it really is."

NYS Senator Michael Gianaris was presented with the Appreciation Award; a picture painted by the students of Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices. He urged to create job training and services for adults who are on the spectrum to help them become productive members of society.

Vice President of Shema Kolainu, Peter Rebenwurzel, presented Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams with the Appreciation Award and expressed Shema Kolainu's gratefulness for his support to the school and center. The Borough President also emphasized "overseeing the well-being of the children” and underlined the importance of caring for individuals with autism as they age.

NYS Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul was presented the State Leadership Award " a gift that I treasure for the rest of my life because it represents the manifestation of love from our G-D through the actions of the people at Shema Kolainu."

Co-emcee Councilmember Kalman Yeger recognized participating elected officials including NYS Senator Simcha Felder, NYS Senator Marisol Alcantara, NYS Assemblymember David Weprin, who was acknowledged along with his brother, Mark Weprin, both of whom were instrumental in funding the NYC Council Autism Initiative. Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez also address the crowd. Proclamations were presented by the office Mayor de Blasio, and NYC Comptroller Stringer.

Councilman Yeger saluted Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and Shema Kolainu as an incredible organization that has no borders. “… we have 500 children in the Bronx and [Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr.] helped us create that." calling him a fierce advocate of the children of Shema Kolainu.

In his closing remarks, Dr. Weinstein thanked the staff of Shema Kolainu, as he shared “Our children continue to amaze us every day, accomplishing more and inspiring us all. These “small miracles” as we call them, are major blessings. These achievements could not be possible without the dedication and support of our outstanding teaching staff. Thank you for your continued support as we work together to stand behind our blessed children as they make new strides along their journey. We look forward to the next twenty years of making a difference in the lives of our children.”

Triage Cancer Founders Publish New Book On Cancer Rights

Triage Cancer Founders Monica Fawzy Bryant and Joanna Fawzy Morales have released their first book, published by the American Bar Association.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, July 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — News Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 6, 2018
Contact: Joanna Morales, jm@triagecancer.org, 310.489.0856

TRIAGE CANCER FOUNDERS PUBLISH NEW BOOK ON CANCER RIGHTS

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, AUGUST 6, 2018 — Triage Cancer Founders and seasoned cancer rights attorneys Monica Fawzy Bryant and Joanna Fawzy Morales have released their first book, published by the American Bar Association. Cancer Rights Law is a combination of a number of separate areas of law, including employment, insurance, government benefits, consumer rights, and estate planning.

This is the first book of its kind to address these legal topics through the lens of cancer diagnosis. Never before seen in one comprehensive book, Cancer Rights Law answers questions about working through treatment or taking time off, accessing disability benefits, identifying health insurance options, appealing health insurance denials, making estate planning and medical decisions, avoiding genetic discrimination, managing finances after a cancer diagnosis, and more.

“Our primary goals in writing this book are to generate more awareness of the cancer-related legal issues that often arise as a result of a cancer diagnosis and to cultivate more advocates to assist cancer survivors and their families, friends, and caregivers in navigating those issues,” said Morales, who serves as CEO of Triage Cancer and has taught law classes at Loyola Law School.

“Whether you teach a law school class, run a legal clinic, are interested in forming a medical-legal partnership, want to provide pro bono legal services, are responsible for navigating patients through their cancer experience, or are coping with your own cancer diagnosis, this book will provide valuable information and practical resources to effectively navigate cancer-related legal issues,” added Bryant, who serves as CFO of the organization and has served as an adjunct law professor at John Marshall Law School in Chicago.

Bryant and Morales wrote Cancer Rights Law keeping in mind that the lack of awareness of the law and failure to recognize its power to help people has been a barrier to people getting their needs met.

Offering this book is an extension of their mission to support the cancer community, which includes the founding of Triage Cancer in 2012. Triage Cancer is a national, nonprofit organization that provides free education on the practical and legal issues that may impact individuals diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers, through events, materials, and resources.

Learn more about Cancer Rights Law at http://TriageCancer.org/CancerRightsLaw and use code “TriageCancer” at checkout for a 35% discount. A percentage of the sale of each book will benefit Triage Cancer.

Triage Cancer is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the radically escalating number of individuals diagnosed with cancer, their caregivers, advocates, and health care professionals successfully navigate the legal and practical issues that arise beyond diagnosis.

AV-Comparatives publishes 2018 enterprise IT-security test under real-world conditions

AV-Comparatives released results of their Business Main-Test Series. It is the most complete Enterprise security comparative test in the IT security industry.

INNSBRUCK, TYROL, AUSTRIA, July 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Business Security Test 2018 (March – June)

AV-Comparatives publishes 2018 business IT-security test with usability reviews to assess endpoint effectiveness under real-world conditions

18 July 2018, Innsbruck, Austria – The independent security software tester AV-Comparatives released the half year results of their Business Main-Test Series. It is the most complete Enterprise IT security comparative test in the endpoint security industry.

The real-world effectiveness of an endpoint protection IT security solution is not solely based on the results of Av-Comparatives' award-winning test framework, but also includes a review on the ease of use of these market leaders brand business security solutions. This multi aspect assessment makes AV-Comparatives Business Main-Test Series the most comprehensive endpoint security report for small to large business organizations.

https://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/avc_biz_2018_07_en.pdf

________________________________________

Most comprehensive Business IT-Security Test

We are pleased to announce the publication of the half-year report of our Business Main-Test Series. This business test assesses endpoint protection on multiple aspects. AV security software is available for all sizes and types of business. Effectiveness of endpoint security should also be evaluated in the context of the organization it is applied in. What fits well at the smaller end of the SME (small to medium enterprise) market is probably not going to be quite so appropriate to larger corporations.

To provide practical and useful information to security specialists, IT-managers and business owners, AV-Comparatives assesses business security products on multiple aspects:

Real-World Protection
This test mimics the dangers an end-user encounters in every day conditions. This award winning dynamic test allows to fully test all protection mechanisms of an AV-solution during all stages of a malware intrusion scenario. This test includes a false positives test on (wrongly blocked) domains as well as (wrongly blocked) downloaded files.

Malware Protection
AV-products are assessed on their ability to protect a system against infection by malicious files before, during or after execution. This test includes a false positives test on common business software. The effectiveness of endpoint protection is critically influenced by both malware infections and false positives, because both disrupt business operations.

Performance Impact
False positives and performance impact are two important factors determining end user acceptance of security products. When users are not hindered they have no incentives to evade company security policies, making these aspects an indirect success factor.

Product Reviews
The individual reviews provide insights in the ease of use and central management. Ease of use includes installation & deployment, daily use and remediation & outbreak containment. With the increasing importance of BYO (bring your own) the ease of which various sorts of endpoint devices can be protected is an important consideration for most organizations.

AV-Comparatives Approved Business Product Award

As in previous years, we are giving our “Approved Business Product” award to qualifying products. As we are now conducting two tests of business products per year, separate awards will be given to qualifying products in July (for March-June tests), and December (for August-November tests) for July, and one for December.

We congratulate the 16 vendors who are participating in the Business Main-Test Series for having their business endpoint protection products publicly tested by an independent lab, showing their commitment to improving their products, being transparent to their customers and having confidence in their product quality. Read our report to see which products were awarded.

Hearing Loss Film “Hearing Hope” Captures Personal Strength, Scientific Vision

Emmy, 7, is grateful for the research taking place to help children and adults with hearing loss.

Video participant, Jason, sits with his family including his son, Ethan, 6, born with hearing loss and fortunate to receive early intervention.

John lives with noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus following 26 years of service in the U.S. Army and wants to be an advocate for those who also suffer.

In a moving film from Hearing Health Foundation, meet six outstanding individuals with hearing loss and learn of the scientific efforts to better their lives.

It’s one of the most common sensory deficits in humans. I think we have to go from it being hidden to being visible.”

— Dr. Anil Lalwani

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, July 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — National nonprofit organization Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) has created a new short film, “Hearing Hope,” to expand awareness of hearing health through the voices of those who benefit from and those who carry out the foundation’s life-changing work.

The third most prevalent chronic physical condition in the U.S., hearing loss can affect anyone—from first-grader Emmy to retired U.S. Army Colonel John—but its reach is often underestimated. “It’s one of the most common sensory deficits in humans,” explains cochlear implant surgeon Dr. Anil Lalwani. “I think we have to go from it being hidden to being visible.”

Both a hearing aid user and cochlear implant recipient, seventh-grader Alex is doing his part to make hearing loss less hidden. Smiling, he says he wants people to know that hearing with his devices makes him happy. John wishes to be an advocate for veterans and all who live with hearing loss and tinnitus.

The film also highlights resilience in response to the challenges associated with hearing conditions. Video participant Renee saw her dream of becoming an astronaut halted at 17 when her hearing loss was detected. Now she helps send people to space as an engineer at NASA.

Sophia describes the “low, low rock bottom” she hit when she was diagnosed with Usher Syndrome, the leading cause of deafblindness. Yet she feels special knowing her disability shapes her and sets her apart.

Jason recounts having no resources for hearing loss in children when his son, Ethan, failed his newborn hearing screening. Today he’s grateful for Ethan’s aptitude for language, made possible through his early hearing loss intervention.

With the support of HHF, more progress is made each year. “I’m glad that the doctors are trying to figure out how fish and birds can restore their hearing,” says Emmy.

For the past 60 years, HHF has funded promising hearing science and in 2011 established the Hearing Restoration Project (HRP), an international consortium dedicated to finding biological cures for hearing loss using fish, bird, and mouse models to replicate the phenomenon of hearing loss reversal in humans.

“If [the HRP] can achieve that goal of hearing restoration…that would be a marvelous thing for hearing loss,” reiterates Dr. Robert Dobie.

Through “Hearing Hope,” HHF would like to share its mission and message of hope to as many individuals as possible and reassure those with hearing loss and their loved ones they are not alone. As an organization that channels all efforts into research and education, HHF would greatly appreciate any assistance or suggestions to increase visibility of the film.

Watch the full film at www.hhf.org/video. Closed captioning is available.

Celebrating its 60th anniversary year, HHF is the nation’s largest charity funder of hearing and balance research. Learn more about HHF at www.hhf.org, via email at info@hhf.org, or by phone at 212.257.6140.

Searing Documentary Exposes Common Denominator in Suicidal Deaths of Children

Dead Wrong: How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child

Over a million children under the age of six are currently on psychiatric drugs in America

Over a million children under the age of six are currently on psychiatric drugs in America

CCHR Florida

This documentary shows how psychiatric drugs all too often result in children spiraling into uncontrollable depressions and committing suicide as a result.

We have a serious drug epidemic on our hands that extends across all age groups and not enough people are looking at these dangerous psychiatric drugs as the culprit.”

— Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) of Florida chapter recently hosted a showing of the jarring documentary entitled Dead Wrong: How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child at their informational center in downtown Clearwater to help explain an increase in the suicidal death of children.

Attendees viewed the searing documentary, which shows how psychiatric drugs all too often result in children spiraling into uncontrollable depressions, dying (including from suicide), and families falling apart. Dead Wrong interviews eight brave mothers and families, multiple health experts, drug counselors, and doctors to illustrate the connection between psychiatric abuse and death— all of which points to statistics that mirror the same conclusion reflected in the film’s title.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published statistics in August 2017 on the increasing drug overdose deaths of teens aged 15 to 19, including from ADHD drugs (psychostimulants) and anti-anxiety drugs (benzodiazepines). The CDC reported that teenager death rates involving psychostimulants with documented abuse potential quadrupled in just 6 years. Moreover, the rates of drug overdose deaths involving benzodiazepines increased by 6 times in only a 5-year timespan. [1][2]

In 2016, Florida’s medical examiners investigated 27,383 deaths, and the toxicology reports from these investigations revealed that drugs were present in 11,910 of these deaths (43%). Benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety drugs) were alone the cause of 1,421 of these deaths. Compared to 2015, 24% more people were found to have one or more prescription drugs in their systems at the time of death, and 40% more Floridians died with at least one prescription drug in their system, which was identified as the cause of death. [3]

“We have a serious drug epidemic on our hands that extends across all age groups and not enough people are looking at these dangerous psychiatric drugs as the culprit,” commented Diane Stein, President of CCHR FL. “This is one of the reasons why we are making this information widely known through showings of this documentary.”

To request a complimentary copy of the documentary Dead Wrong: How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child or to reserve seats for the next showing please call (727) 442-8820.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

Marketing New and Improved Products Will Drive The Major Orthopedic Joint Replacement Implants Market

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, July 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Business Research Company's new report, Major Orthopedic Joint Replacement Implants Global Market Strategies and Opportunities to 2022, estimates that major orthopedic joint replacement implants market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8%.

This market growth is being achieved through the implementation of marketing strategies that focus on new product development, improving existing products, and increased investments in emerging countries.

The established companies in the market are continually investing in research and development. B. Braun Melsungen, for instance, has spent €262.4 million for research and development of new products. Zimmer Biomet invested 5% of its total sales in 2017 in R&D to develop innovative products. Generic companies are increasingly gaining traction through their product development strategies, by making copies of legacy implants with proven designs and biomaterials and further offering them at lower prices compared to branded implants, thereby posing a threat for major orthopedic device manufacturers such as Stryker, Johnson & Johnson, Zimmer, Smith & Nephew and Medtronic Spine. This has led to increased interest in launching new products at competitive prices. Johnson & Johnson has adopted a similar yet different strategy of offering premium products at premium prices. On the other hand, we have Stryker and Medtronic that offer different product portfolios at different pricing.

Download a sample of the report at https://www.thebusinessresearchcompany.com/sample.aspx?id=801&type=smp.

A strategy being adopted by companies for product improvement involves the use of robotic technologies to increase efficiency and reduce the failure rate of knee surgery. Robots help in reducing the time required for surgical procedures and offer better results by eliminating the risks of complications. Companies such Stryker and Smith and Nephew believe that robots give them an edge in the major orthopedic replacement implants market. For instance, in 2017, Stryker Corporation launched the MAKO robot which is enabled to perform total knee replacement in the US. In 2016, Smith and Nephew launched its Navio surgical robot to perform knee replacement surgery in the US. The robot, which initially performed partial knee surgery, recently conducted its first full knee replacement surgery in New York and was given an approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The use of 3D printing technology in implants is another effort aimed at providing reliable and customized surgery for patients. 3D printing reduces the risk of a wrong fit by producing components used in the surgery through using the patient’s X-rays images or CT scans which.

Myra Lovvorn of SUPPOSE to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, July 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In her final broadcast, Oprah Winfrey revealed she had interviewed 30,000 people over the life of her TV show, from the poorest of the poor to the richest of the rich, and every one of them had problems with self-worth at some point in their lives. Indeed, self-esteem, a person's overall sense of self-worth or personal value, is essential for a positive attitude toward life and success.

Some people never develop self-esteem because they believe the world is happening to them; they never suspect that they might have something to do with it. As a holistic nurse practitioner specializing in hospice, Myra Lovvorn saw firsthand how low self-esteem can lead a person toward a premature end.

“Working at the bedside of people dying, listening to their stories I remember thinking they wouldn't be dying if they had only made some different choices,” says Myra. “There was just something emotional in what they were saying that led me to realize that if someone had stepped in and helped them back then, they wouldn’t be in that hospice bed.”

Today, Myra is the founder of SUPPOSE, where she offers her clients a path to change their subconscious beliefs and boost their self-esteem.

“SUPPOSE stands for the “Subconscious Understands the Powerful Perception of Self Esteem,” says Myra. “Our whole life is about figuring out who we are and what we are, and we gauge it by comparing ourselves to other people. I believe you have everything you need at your disposal, you just need to learn to access it and unlock it.”

To improve our self-esteem, we need to change our existing beliefs. In addition to her skills as a holistic nurse practitioner, Myra is an instructor and facilitator of PSYCH-K®, a unique modality that helps us change the subconscious beliefs that perpetuate our old habits of thinking and behavior. She has achieved remarkable results.

“What I love about PSYCH-K is that it asks permission of our higher self and our subconscious mind.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Myra Lovvorn in an interview with Jim Masters on July 25th at 11am EDT.
