Drugs for Your Genes

August 26, 2018

As far as I’m concerned, the final nail in the genetic-testing coffin was struck when GSK (GlaxcoSmithKline) announced “GSK Buys $300 Million Stake in 23andMe for Drug Research Data.” Yes, that’s right, GSK is buying into 23andMe so it can collect your data to develop new drugs and identify if you should be entered into a particular […]

Thinking of a Fluoroquinolone? Think Again

August 24, 2018

I love this title “Thinking of a Fluoroquinolone? Think Again”. It’s a Medscape Commentary that warns people about taking this very dangerous drug. It’s written by a medical officer with the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion at the CDC. Look at the statistics: “Fluoroquinolones are the third most commonly prescribed outpatient antibiotic class in the […]

3 Nails in the Magnesium Deficiency Coffin

August 21, 2018

Three Medscape articles in a row caught my eye. I could write a blog on each one but collectively they emphasize the continued failure of modern medicine to recognize the horrendous epidemic of magnesium deficiency. All three articles put the final nail in the coffin for me that modern medicine is never going to recognize […]

Your Doctor’s Attention Span: 11 Seconds

August 15, 2018

Wow, if you had your doubts about modern medicine before, just try to grasp what this report means for your health. A recent study finds that “Doctors Give Patients 11 Seconds To Explain Reason For Visit Before Interrupting.” Only about one third of primary care doctors and 20% of specialists will actually listen to their […]

Bad Guidelines for T2 Diabetes

August 12, 2018

The guidelines for T2 Diabetes will continue to be bad, in my opinion, until modern medicine adopts the Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting. I’m reading Dr. Jason Fung’s Diabetes Code right now and along comes a Medscape Commentary called “’Really Good’ New Guidelines for T2 Diabetes”? But there is nothing new, they are still all about drugs. […]

Alzheimer’s Disease: Pineal Calcification 

August 8, 2018

Sayer Ji on his website GreenMedInfo writes a thorough report on pineal calcification as a cause of Alzheimer’s disease. Of course, in my magnesium world any sort of calcification means magnesium deficiency and the treatment is saturation levels of magnesium to overcome the deficiency. He mentions magnesium in the article but unfortunately most health experts suffer under […]

Another Anti-Vitamin Study

August 5, 2018

Grrrrrr. Medscape happily published the following article “No Scientific Proof That Multivitamins Promote Heart Health.”  And I said a little prayer for all the people who will read this nonsense and stop taking their multivitamins and forfeit another piece of their health. You may know that I’m not that keen on most multivitamins because they are […]

Pulling the Plug on Protandim

August 1, 2018

I’m happy that more and more people are using natural supplements but sometimes the hype goes too far. The hype is especially true for MLM companies where proselytizing members help ratchet up the placebo effect to incredible heights. One MLM product, Protandim has crossed my path many times – the most recent, a fanatic member […]

Polypharmacy in the Elderly

July 30, 2018

There is nothing new in this headline except the number of prescriptions to seniors has increased. “People in their silver years are golden geese to Big Pharma: More than half are on at least 5 prescriptions, some more than 20.” Thirty years ago I used a cartoon called Drug Free America in my public lectures. […]

NSAIDs + Anticoagulants a Dangerous Combination

July 25, 2018

Medscape announced their conclusion from a recent clinical investigation finding that “NSAIDs Plus Anticoagulants a Dangerous Combination” leading to major bleeding and stroke. Unfortunately, it’s common practice to put drugs on the market without identifying their interactions with other common drugs. And it’s only years afterward in what’s called “post marketing surveillance” that problems are […]
