Re: The Permanent Mental Health Regime

It may be that these are "loss-leaders". Give the scan away for (basically) free, and some percentage of people scanned will need hospital services.

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Whenever there's a debate about whether or not "men" can get pregnant, it's worth asking what the definition of "man" is. One side of the debate will have a very clear definition, and the other side will be totally unable to define the word "man". Without being able to define "man", they really can'...

4. Hopefully everyone already knows that prostate cancer screening has been declared useless. I only remember Ben Stiller urging men to get tested. I just reviewed that after reading your post. Hmm. https://www.healthnewsreview.org/2016/10/ben-stiller-prostate-cancer/ All I know about prostates is ...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II
