I’m sure there’s a probabilistic effect; maybe if you were a woman in the medieval ages regularly drinking pennyroyal tea might decrease the probability of conception enough that you would have 5 kids instead of 7 or something. If it was a specific pregnancy you were worried about, considering how dangerous… Read more
Yup. Big Pharma gets a lot of grief, but....their aim (in addition to “making a sh*t-ton of money”) is to produce and sell medications that have high purity levels and controllable dosages and reproducable effects in clinical trials. To do that, you have to make the active chemical pure, and then dilute it with… Read more
Now we deal with abortion fascists.
Thank you, I found that line a little terrifying too.
Medical science is a real science. There’s a lot that hasn’t been studied as much as it should be, particularly relating to women’s health, and the stamping out of midwifery did do a lot of damage to our knowledge. However, there is a difference between “x herb… Read more
While this is useful knowledge, it would also behoove us to VOTE FOR GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES WHO WILL PUSH BACK AGAINST ANTI-ABORTION LEGISLATION. Medical abortifacients should be cheap and readily available in every pharmacy, urgent care clinic and goddamned school nurse’s office, and surgical abortion should be… Read more
It won’t make me question it as much as I’m questioning what the hell is wrong with New Hampshire and why we let them have an outsized role in our political system. Circus Peanuts, Really? They are one of the most repulsive food items on Earth and we should all be able to come together as a nation and ruthless mock… Read more
I think you may be right about the scenario, especially given that the lowest price point is $250. Though I’m a middle class adult now, I’ve never gone over like $200 for a wedding gift. Whether it’s a complete stranger coworker of my spouse or my own brother, $100-200 is the hard-set range I’m working on for wedding… Read more
I have failed a urine test after thoughtlessly eating Everything bagels a few times. Hadn’t done any opiates in over twenty years and was very surprised until I figured it out. These were bagels from Kossars on the Lower East Side, highly recommended - COVID permitting and if you don’t have to take any pee tests.
Yes, you absolutely can. It depends on the brand of seeds and how much washing the company did of them. I hit 3 years of sobriety yesterday! I can definitely say that at times when nothing else was available I would buy large bags of poppy seeds and get super high off them by making tea. In other words you are washing… Read more
My Sister in Law failed a drug test after Easter one year. Apparently she would eat spoonfuls of Poppy Seed filling for the Easter poppy seed rolls.
Having worked for a pharmaceutical company back in the day, the test thresholds are crucial. I know from reputable sources of people who have failed drug screens due to modest amounts of poppy seeds..
