Adapt, Adopt, and Survive

January 20, 2019

After several conversations with a keen and cool millennial, I realized I should consider my own mantra of “adapt, adopt, and survive” when I discuss millennials and their drug intake.  You can Google what I’ve previously written about ADHD and Ritalin. My blog, “Recycling Amphetamines” speaks to the generation of young people who have grown […]

Demeaning Dietary Supplements

January 13, 2019

How can nutrients that the body requires for every breath we take, every move we make, and every thought we have be so misunderstood by doctors? When I first began taking a close look at magnesium in the late 1990s I was astounded at what it can do – and I remain astounded as the […]

More Diabetes Drugs!

January 6, 2019

It’s taken decades for drug companies to publically acknowledge that insulin and sulfonylurea drugs, both used to treat type 2 diabetes, increase the risk for heart disease. They make that announcement in a recent JAMA study reported on Medscape. Why now, you ask? Because they have a new line of glucose-lowering drugs that they are unveiling. […]

Too Much Information (TMI)

January 4, 2019

Our culture is suffering from too much information and at the same time we are losing our words to resist. What an amazing schizophrenic, even quadrophrenic existence we are now living. The latest onslaught of TMI in the medical world is an Apple Watch app just released before the 2018 Holidays that reads your heart […]

Raising the Bar by Lowering the Target

December 30, 2018

My blog topic is the title of an American Journal of Cardiology paper that’s an outright educational promotion for a new line of cholesterol drugs. I guess the publicity against statin drugs has hit a high point and drug companies are scrambling to keep the cholesterol myth going with non-statin PCSK9 Inhibitors that supposedly treat LDL cholesterol. The […]

Floxing Children 

December 26, 2018

Floxing is the term used by people who suffer serious side effects from fluoroquinolone antibiotics. These drugs are widely used and include ciprofloxacin (Cipro), gemifloxacin (Factive), levofloxacin (Levaquin), moxifloxacin (Avelox), norfloxacin (Noroxin), and ofloxacin (Floxin). What do all these drugs have in common? They are all fluoridated molecules, which means they contain fluorine. This very toxic element […]

Fake Scientific Research

December 19, 2018

After my last Blog “The Three Traditions of Medicine” Some readers wanted more information about “Evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.” Here’s the standard definition: “systematically developed statements to assist practitioner decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances. Guidelines can be used to reduce inappropriate variations in practice and to promote the delivery of high quality, evidence-based health care.”  I translate […]

What’s Happening to Kids’ Brains?

December 16, 2018

Is ADHD Really Increasing? This article on Medscape came out at the same time WebMD reported the incidence of autism as 1 in 40 children. In the same news cycle there was a study by the NIH reporting the negative impact of Heavy Screen Time on Young Brains. The latest ADHD study, using 2015-2016 data, measured the prevalence […]

Botox for AFib? Seriously?

December 13, 2018

How does that make any sense? Botulinum Toxin for AF After Cardiac Surgery. Surgery puts you at risk for arrhythmia; to prevent them, doctors give beta blockers preventively. However, that ended badly for many patients. I wrote about it in a blog called “Killer Beta Blockers”.  Surgery also puts you at risk for magnesium deficiency, especially […]
