Stalin's Mysteriious DeathStalin's Mysterious Death

In a historic medical article published in Surgical Neurology International, Dr. Faria cites compelling evidence that the Soviet dictator was likely poisoned under the direction of his right hand henchman, Lavrenti Beria, with the very probable connivance of Nikita Khrushchev, who eventually succeeded Stalin and went on to dismantle Stalin's Cult of Personality and expose the "errors" of the former regime.

Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery but taking the painkiller.
– President Barack Obama

Director of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urges regulations to limit physician’s prescription of opiate pain medication.

States enact laws limiting opiate pain relievers in both dosage and length of use.
– News report

In discussing his health-care plan, President Obama declared that chronic pain medication is an alternative to surgery in elderly or infirm patients — or perhaps all patients. More recently, the director of the CDC declared that chronic opiate medication is addictive and will be severely curtailed.
