FDA Under Question

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

Pharmaceutical lobbyists have put the U.S. citizen at risk.

One example is that the lobbyists have mandated that taxpayers pay full retail prices for drugs that may not be all that beneficial. And some drugs are increasing in price at astronomical rates. The cost of the antidepressant WellbutrinXL went up 44.5% from 2005 to 2007. The price of Ambien shot up 70.1% during that time. A drug that is used to treat heart problems in premature babies went from $136.10 to $1,877 in one year.

Acting like our protection agent the FDA, manipulated by pharmaceutical interests, keeps the free market off the playing field. In fact, the FDA is helping the drug companies to financially rape the American consumer by keeping competition down.

More scientific innovation is occurring in the medical field than at any time in history. But this progress is being being denied the public because of FDA mandated rules supported and guided by the pharmaceutical companies.

Become an informed citizen and demand that your government act in your behalf and not that of the pharmaceutical companies.

Optimizing Bone Strength

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Mainstream medicine focuses almost exclusively on prescription drugs to reduce the risk of osteoporosis in aging men and women. What people don’t know is that the popular class of drugs used to treat osteoporosis focuses on limiting additional bone loss rather than actually building more bone. This class of drugs is also associated with potentially serious side effects, including heart arrhythmia.

Scientific research has discovered the power of collagen for supporting optimal bone tensile strength.

The Wrong Diet

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

The expression “cutting your own throat” is used when a

person does something that either causes harm to themselves

or negates something good or beneficial to themselves.

With the way that 95% of people eat, they are completely

cutting their own throats in terms of their digestive

system and their overall health. For you non-math majors,

95% means 19 out of every 20 people, children and adults

alike.

So in 19 out of 20 people, the harmful bacteria caused by

current dietary practices end up well-nourished and

multiply like rabbits, then they crowd out and overcome the

beneficial bacteria.

Then you can have major problems.  All of these can be

caused or worsened by bad bacteria overgrowth in your gut:

– Diverticulosis/diverticulitis

– Crohn’s disease

– Colitis

– Leaky gut syndrome

– Constipation

– Diarrhea

– IBS

– Weak immune system

– Bloating, gas

– Allergies, asthma

– Eczema, dermatitis

– High cholesterol

– Chronic infections (sinus, vaginal, skin, respiratory)

…and more.

Choices?

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Dr. Stanley Burzynski on pancreatic cancer: “We in the medical world know without a doubt, that chemotherapy absolutely, positively, does nothing, nothing whatsoever and is completely ineffective for pancreatic cancer.”

Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez states: “There are only three kinds of cancer that respond to chemotherapy, if they do, in fact, respond: testicular cancer, some lymphomas, and childhood leukemias.”

Dr. Ralph Moss was fired from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center because he wouldn’t disseminate the research on  laetrile, a natural drug that showed much progress.

Pioneer Doctors

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

With an epidemic at hand and the poor results from “standard of care” chemotherapy medicine, it’s exciting to find doctors who will risk attack, lawsuits, ridicule and ostracization to think outside the box and CURE people with stage IV cancer. Non of these doctors have 100 percent cure rate but their rates are much, much higher than “standard of care” medicine.

Dr. Albert Braverman, M.D. states: “Many oncologists recommend chemotherapy for almost any type of cancer, with a faith that is unshaken by the almost constant failure.”

For years the Texas Medical Board tried to take away Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski’s medical license.  The FDA tried to put him in jail. His patients were passionate about defending him because they had been cancer free for years. Now if you still can’t use the word “Cured” that’s your problem. But 15, 20 years is a long time to be without cancer showing up in any xrays or scans. It was finally congress which stepped in and forced the FDA to allow him to continue.

Another champion is Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, from Manhattan, who treats all kinds of cancer patients. Dr. Gonzalez’s protocol is individualized diet, individualized supplementation, and intensive detoxification. The diets he prescribes range from a raw vegetarian diet to a red-meat one. Each is individualized.

Suzanne Somers KNOCKOUT

Suzanne Somers Story

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Conventional medicine’s approach to cancer prevention and treatment is a debilitating and often deadly fraud. The problem runs deeper than just the doctors who are following protocol. The underlying issue is that the entire cancer treatment “industry” has been following a faulty paradigm for close to 100 years.

Paradigms, a belief system, can be harmful. For centuries it was a religious doctrine that the sun revolved around the earth. Galileo proved 400 years ago that it just wasn’t so. So he was threatened with torture until he recanted of what he knew to be true and was placed under house arrest for the rest of his life.

It’s just as bad today for doctors who will tell you that chemotherapy doesn’t work 97 percent of the time. There are CURES for cancer through nutrition and and alternative means.

Suzanne Somers tells her story of how she was “diagnosed” with full body cancer by four doctors plus the emergency room doctor and the radiologist, only to resist and find out she did not have cancer. They were willing to kill her with drugs to get at an enemy that was not there. When the doctors find she doesn’t have cancer, Dr. “Oncologist” comes into her hospital room and angrily tells Suzanne she should have told them she was on steroids. Another mistake. Suzanne wasn’t on steroids.

Totally misdiagnosed Suzanne finally struggles home only to be given more medicine that will kill her.

Suzanne Somers tells her story because she, a well-known health advocate, a bestselling author of health books, and a famous person, was almost poisoned to death by the “health industry”. What happens to the average person that just goes along with any doctor’s diagnosis?

A Cure for Cancer

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

You won’t find a cure for cancer in the traditional way of chemo and radiation. They only prolong life, sometimes by a month or two. And most people are miserably sick during these times just waiting to die. And there are only about three types of cancer that respond to chemo.

But there is a better way. The alternative doctors have found ways to  C U R E  cancer but the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies don’t want to recognize this.

Just two years ago the New York Times reported that cancer death rates have dropped only 5 percent from 1950 to 2005. Next to this miserable showing, the death rates from heart disease dropped 64 percent during that time, and for flu and pneumonia it fell 58 percent. Yet look at all the money that’s thrown at “cancer cures”.

Suzanne Somers in her book Knockout tells stories of many cancer cures without or in spite of chemotherapy and radiation. She tells the stories of a number of doctors who have been ridiculed, sued, brought before the U.S. government, and still C U R E  people of cancer.

In following articles I will tell you about some of them.

Learning about Cholophyllin

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

Chlorophyllin is a semi-synthetic mixture of sodium copper salts derived from chlorophyll and is water-soluble.

Carcinogens in our food (like well-done meat) and environment can cause DNA mutations that lead to cancer and other diseases.

Protecting against DNA mutations is crucial to preventing disease and prolonging life.

Chlorophyllin demonstrates protection against numerous carcinogens.

Experimental evidence suggests that chlorophyllin may help prevent liver, breast, colon and pancreatic cancers.

Should Food Be Regulated Like Drugs?

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

The U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM) represents the heart of the medical establishment. Congress listens to it. The President listens to it. The FDA listens to it.

In this case, the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition posed some technical questions to the Institute of Medicine. Please note that this FDA center is in charge of regulating dietary supplements. Unfortunately the Institute of Medicine decided to go beyond the technical questions posed and instead chose to recommend a new approach to regulating supplements. A lot of what the IOM said was wrong, but let’s take it from the top.

1) The IOM seems to think that healthy foods and supplements should be regulated like drugs. “There is no scientific rationale for having different levels of rigor applied to these different categories,” said Dr. John Ball, chair of the committee that produced the report.

Really? The distinguished scientists on the IOM panel should be able to understand that natural products cannot be patented and therefore cannot be brought through the obscenely expensive FDA approval process required for drugs. Who does the IOM or FDA expect to pay a billion dollar cost of approval for cherries or walnuts? Individual cherry or walnut growers? Will consumers buy cherries if they cost as much as drugs?

This is what we have called the Catch 22 of contemporary American medicine.

Because only non-natural and patentable substances can be brought through the FDA approval process, the FDA in effect enforces a medical monopoly for drug companies. As a direct consequence, natural and often much safer and cheaper natural remedies are ignored. Natural medicine based on diet, dietary supplements, and lifestyle, which ought to be at the center of medicine, are shunted off to the sidelines and subjected to legal threats by hostile regulatory agencies.

By the way, how safe are all those drugs that go through the FDA approval process? In 2008, the FDA received more than 530,000 reports of suspected adverse drug effect, there were 320,000 serious adverse events and nearly 50,000 deaths reported. A report in 2007 by the FDA, CDC and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found that common drug dangers are so bad that “Harmful reactions to some of the most widely used medicines – from insulin to a common antibiotic – send more than 700,000 Americans to emergency rooms each year.”

“Nuts to You”

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

A new review from Linda Loma University in California has more evidence suggesting that eating nuts may help lower cholesterol and contribute to heart health.

The research  which was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine examined 25 different studies that looked at nut consumption of 583 people. It found that eating an average of 67 grams of nuts a day reduced total cholesterol by an average of 5%, LDL by 7% and improved the ratio of LDL and HDL cholesterol.

Since nuts are high in calories the authors recommended only 3 ounces of nuts a day.
