Autism Controversy

This is your opportunity to understand the controversy about vaccines.  And if you are a parent or a grandparent, surely you will take a few minutes to understand the controversy and how it developed about vaccines causing autism. This video is only FREE for a week, so please, do it NOW!

The issue may seem far from you, but every 7 minutes in the US a child is diagnosed with autism.  By 2032, if it continues, 80% of boys will become autistic and one in two children will be autistic.  What does that say about our future?   I am a senior, but there are young people I love who will still be here, God willing, and I want them to have a good life.  How will our society care for these adults who used to be children?  

This video makes the controversy understandable.  Our civilization depends on us understanding this and doing something about it.

People are confused about prostate issues.  I remember when I was in my first office, a man came to me wanting me to “do something” about his prostate cancer.  The doctor had told him no treatment was necessary because he would die from something else before his prostate cancer was a problem because he had the kind of cancer that grows so slowly.

It might have grown slowly but he couldn’t think of anything else because he wanted someone to “do something!”

If you don’t understand the issue, listen to this man.  He is not a doctor but understands the issue and how complicated making a decision about this is for the person.  It isn’t easy for the doctor either.  Understanding it completely will keep a person from “wanting something to be done—right now!”  So take a few moments and listen to the first half of this presentation by Malcolm Gladwell.

Processed Food Disease

What causes diabetes?  Heart disease?  Fatty liver disease?  

Medicine is based on giving drugs for these diseases to “manage them,” not cure them.

But what if there were a cure? If you need to be convinced that these diseases are caused by eating processed foods, then listen to this video. He is a remarkable medical doctor.  You will enjoy his lecture using graphs and statistics. This is not simply his opinion, but based on research! ENJOY!

State of Medical Care

I hope you will listen to this video. Dr. Mercola interviews Dr. Marty Makary’s about his book, “The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care–and How to Fix It.” He is a surgeon at John Hopkins and speaks to why the health care system is broken. He says doctors know the nudges to get patients to do what they want them to do. However, he also talks about how patients should take responsibility for not accepting an antibiotic when the doctor says it is a virus. It works both ways: doctors should not do things to patients that are unnecessary AND patients should not demand treatment that is not necessary.

He polled medical doctors and they said 1/5 of the treatments done on patients are unnecessary. He also said that hospitals are really wanting to build spinal surgery centers because they are so lucrative, not because they care about people in pain. He asked spinal doctors how many spinal surgeries are done that are not necessary. You will be surprised at the answer.

He says primary care is completely broken! As he says, we have a health care CRISIS!
