Controversial new alcohol guidelines follow recommendation that infants also receive foods containing peanuts to avoid nut allergies
The National Institute of Health (NIH) announced on Friday that parents should give babies a shot of alcohol regularly, starting at 6 months or even earlier, as a way to help prevent later alcoholism.
The recommendation comes on the heels of new guidance announced this week by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases that children be fed foods containing peanuts to help avoid nut allergies as they grow older.
“We realize our new alcohol guidelines fly in the face of conventional wisdom,” said Dr. Mortimer P. Banzer, Director of the NIH, “but the research is clear — a shot of tequila, vodka, whiskey, even a pint of beer every other day, can help fortify a toddler’s body against the affects of alcohol addiction in adulthood.”
The new national health guidelines calling for parents to give their infants a shot of booze early and often has parents concerned, but Dr. Banzer was adamant. “Overloading the body with the offending addictive agent or allergen at a young age is precisely what works. There’s a window of time when the body is more likely to tolerate a shot of hooch than react to it, and if you can educate the body during that window, alcohol addiction is much less likely to occur. It’s counter-intuitive but parents needn’t worry. This is well-researched — it’s completely safe to do so.”
Dr. Banzer said that a bigger threat may be parents joining their babies in doing a shot, “which could lead to irresponsible parenting.” But he added that a little impulse control should do the trick.
The NIH is also experimenting with giving newborns one cigarette a week as a way to prevent nicotine addiction, but results from that study, while promising, are not yet conclusive.

There are so many common sense thoughts returning to the fore and so much garbage political correctness BS going where it belongs. I have not been this HAPPY since…………..wait for it………….Bush. Egads!
In less than 24 hours since Donald Trump has been named the President-elect of the greatest nation on this earth, it’s become apparent he’s being given far more credit than he’s due. There’s anguished cries of, ‘How will my children grow up knowing not to discriminate?’ or, ‘How can I look my daughter in the eye and tell her she has purpose?’ Really? Really, America? You have given Donald Trump, a mere mortal man, far more credit than he deserves, especially considering the man hasn’t even taken office yet. Trump does not have the power to mold our families, that is our flat-out our responsibility.
Your children will learn to love or hate, be respectful or disrespectful, wise or foolish, not by the character of the family in the White House, but by the family in their house. May I submit to you that your sons and daughters will be…

Continuing and Preserving the Obama Legacy
It makes total sense. When Barack Obama won the Peace Prize in 2009 it subsequently tipped the balance in his favor during the 2012 election.
This year they have not yet announced the award date for the Nobel Prize in Literature.
That is probably because it is a new category: Outrageous Fictional Literature
I could be wrong, though. It might just be total BS. Not unlike 90% of the mainstream media reporting on Donald Trump.
It is Obvious that the Experts and their push for “Gun Free Zones” are not forming the right answer.
Example: Are there too many guns in the U.S.A.? This graphic would stroke your fear but it does not tell you the whole story.
Again, be mindful that this data does not tell the whole story. Per Capita would be meaningful if the gun demand was equal on all segments of society – sex, age, location and type. Most people do not live alone and that reduces the number of guns per household by 50% right off-the-bat. Cyprus has a population of less than 1.2 million and a very turbulent history – How can that be compared in a simple per capita analysis with the U.S.??
Be educated about ALL of the facts before you form your own opinion.
The Sky Is Not Falling
As a result of considerable research performed by Jacob Bronowski (and translated by Pierre Gosselin) using data compiled in a report by The International Federation of the Red Cross in Geneva, Switzerland, the Author concludes that the harbinger of death by climate is not forthcoming.
According to the Red Cross data, many of the deaths were due to cold, with 505 alone occurring in one country – Peru! Among the top disasters were brutal winters in the USA and japan – hardly what one would expect from “global warming.
Probably the only ones who will continue to scream despite raw factual data to the contrary are the ones who depend upon grants and foundation monies. ~ TU
