Benzo Scripts On The Rise

May 20, 2018

I recently wrote a blog called “Recycling Amphetamines” about the Adderall epidemic but Benzos may present a worse problem.

The Business of Medicine 

May 16, 2018

Truthful but “all kinds of stupid” is an April 2018 Genome Report where “Goldman Sachs asks in biotech research report: ‘Is curing patients a sustainable business model?‘” Yup, we are indeed living on the planet of the dead – or soon to be dead – because it’s more economically viable than allowing humans to live […]

The Pendulum Swings on Vitamin D

May 13, 2018

Medicine has a tendency to promote something whole hog and then deny it just as vehemently The latest victim of the swinging pendulum is vitamin D.

Hart, a professor of psychiatry at Columbia University in a (badly written) online article explains that “ …the public remains almost entirely ignorant of the fact that methamphetamine produces nearly identical effects to those produced by the popular ADHD […]

Cardiologists’ Pay Increases

May 2, 2018

A recent Medscape report on physicians’ salaries found that “Cardiologists remain among the top earners in medicine, with annual pay of $423,000, up from $410,000 in 2017.”  However about one third of cardiologists feel that they should be earning more. Are these doctors truly worth half a million dollars? Don’t you think that compensation should be gauged […]

A recent study added to this list with the report from JAMA Pediatrics that “Acid Suppressors in Early Infancy Linked to Allergies Later.” A few years ago, when I first heard […]

Drugs Fund Patient Advocacy Groups

April 23, 2018

It seems that drug companies have maneuvered their way around the illegality of giving doctors gifts and trips to promote drugs by funding patient advocacy groups with a higher price tag than directly lobbying congress. Years ago, I was asked to be on the board of a newly developed patient advocacy group sponsored by a […]
