US Drug Watchdog Demands the US Congress Fund a Robust Border Wall Between the US & Mexico to Stop Mexican Drug Cartel Heroin from Flooding into The USA
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The US Drug Watchdog is urging the US Congress to stop playing politics with an incredibly serious national security issue and fund a robust border wall between the United States and Mexicoto stop the flood of fentanyl-laced heroin pouring into the US through the porous border separating these two nations. It is estimated that in 2017, more than 70,000 US citizens died from what is called the Opioid Overdose Epidemic. The number one culprit of these needless deaths is fentanyl laced heroin that was produced by Mexican or Central American Drug Cartels. The group is also appealing to the news media to stop calling this national disaster the Opioid Epidemic —– it is a fentanyl-laced heroin epidemic caused or created by Mexican or Central American Drug Cartels.
The US Drug Watchdog says, “Did some US drug makers create a US dependency for the pain pills? The answer is -absolutely – yes. However, Mexican or Central American Drug Cartels were simultaneously flooding the USA with meth and cocaine prior to 2000. By 2010, Mexican or Central American Drug Cartels had moved onto heroin. Within the last five or six years, Mexican Drug Cartels have been adding Chinese-made fentanyl to make their low-grade heroin more powerful – and it worked. More US citizens have lost their lives to Mexican Drug Cartel heroin than were lost in the entire Vietnam War, along with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq/Syriacombined.
“Mexican Drug Cartel heroin typically is brought into the USA via smugglers called mules who carry in this lethal product for money, or by illegal immigrants who are forced to carry it in as the price of entry into the United States. The government of Mexico does not control their northern border with the United States – the Mexican Drug Cartels do. If anyone doubts this, please talk to anyone who works in federal, state or local law enforcement who works along the US-Mexican border.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog believes President Trump’s vision for a robust border wall between Mexico and the United States must happen or there will be another dead 70,000 US citizens this year, next year, and on and on and on. They also believe the Mexican Drug Cartel Heroin Epidemic should be the top national security issue for the United States and partisan politics should not be a consideration. Some of the victims of the Mexican Drug Cartel heroin epidemic are US inner city and suburban high school students. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Urges Women Who Had a Laparoscopic Power Morecellation Procedure That Caused Their Uterine Cancer to Spread to Call Immediately
Oct. 2, 2014
The US Drug Watchdog is launching an initiative focused on identifying women who had a what is called a laparoscopic power morecellation treatment done, that ending up causing their uterine cancer to actually spread. For more information, potential victims are urged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog now alerting women who have uterine cancer to avoid having a procedure called a laparoscopic power morecellation without first alerting their physician to their condition. According to the FDA having this procedure done with a woman with uterine cancer could actually cause the cancer to spread. The FDA has indicated this procedure could actually “significantly worsen the patient’s likelihood of long term survival.”
The US Drug Watchdog says, “If you are a victim of uterine cancer, and you had a procedure called a laparoscopic power morecellation, and your cancer has spread, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466. We just became aware of this situation, and we fear there could be thousands of women at risk.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
According to a US FDA statement on April 17, 2014, “Laparoscopic power morecellation is one of several available treatments for fibroids. It is a procedure that uses a medical device to divide the uterine tissue into smaller pieces or fragments so it can be removed through a small incision in the abdomen, such as during laparoscopy.
“Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that originate from the smooth muscle tissue in the wall of the uterus. According to the National Institutes of Health, most women will develop uterine fibroids at some point in their lives. While most uterine fibroids do not cause problems, they can cause symptoms, such as heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure or pain, and frequent urination, sometimes requiring medical or surgical therapy.
“Based on an analysis of currently available data, the FDA has determined that approximately 1 in 350 women who are undergoing hysterectomy or myomectomy for fibroids have an unsuspected type of uterine cancer called uterine sarcoma. If laparoscopic power morecellation is performed in these women, there is a risk that the procedure will spread the cancerous tissue within the abdomen and pelvis, significantly worsening the patient’s likelihood of long-term survival.”
The FDA Warning Included the Following:
Based on currently available information, the FDA’s recommendations for health care professionals include:
- Be aware that the FDA discourages the use of laparoscopic power morecellation during hysterectomy or myomectomy for the treatment of women with uterine fibroids.
- Do not use laparoscopic uterine power morecellation in women with suspected or known uterine cancer.
- Carefully consider all the available treatment options for women with symptomatic uterine fibroids.
- Discuss the benefits and risks of all treatments with patients.
- After carefully weighing the risks and benefits of the procedure, if a health care professional nonetheless determines that laparoscopic power morecellation is the best therapeutic option for his or her patient, the health care professional should:
- Inform patients that their fibroid(s) may contain unexpected cancerous tissue and that laparoscopic power morecellation may spread the cancer, significantly worsening their prognosis.
- Be aware that some clinicians and medical institutions now advocate using a specimen “bag” during morecellation in an attempt to contain the uterine tissue and minimize the risk of cancer spread in the abdomen and pelvis.
