The problem with GMO foods…

…is that so often we see the term, say it, speak it, read it, and become numb to the implications.  Genetically Modified Organisms are man’s attempt to outsmart that complex supercomputer called, Nature.  Occasionally, as they say, this does much good.  Just look at how many lives have been saved !  Here is the effect of a natural soybean plant exposed to the herbicide, Dicamba, (Monsanto), when it has not had the benefit of the genetic engineering that would otherwise protect it like it’s GMO counterpart, FrankenSoybean.

Scott Simon, a very talented and award winning journalist — whose political views can often be quite annoying and wrongheaded — nonetheless featured this story on his NPR Weekend Edition today.  Quite chilling.

The Dementia Forum…

Although it is tempting to simply make this a regular analysis of the Minneapolis Star and Tribune reporting, that would be very disrespectful to those whose families have been devastated by some form of this condition. No, the collective effect, understanding, treatment, and, yes, exploitation of this near-ubiquitous disease demands constant scrutiny and clarification. By ubiquitous, I mean that a day does not go by when we do not see some story re Alzheimer’s disease — both good and bad. I stumbled over one of the “good” stories today while listening to taxpayer supported radio that was quite heart-warming:

The fact that one must listen to a Youtube ad for 5 seconds before viewing this illustrates the “exploited” part a bit…

The mystery diagnosis…

hillary-eyes

…hiding in plain “sight”, as it were, is leaving everyone yet another clue. Hillary’s Eyes are now the topic of conversation as her obvious cranial nerve palsy is picked up by more and more people. Now Powerline has started asking the question about the crossed eyes — cranial nerve paralysis — so evident for months with our favorite female presidential candidate.   As we had previously reported, it’s Lyme disease, Watson… »

Roundup Ready® Children?

1346c8eb-5a72-434b-a845-e0f2d7eac587_1-691efd2a42503fa16622950d7b44ae53

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup weedkiller has now been found in several routine childhood vaccinations, with the highest concentration being in the MMR II by Merck. This is the same vaccine that CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, has demonstrated is linked to autism. The laboratory analysis was done at Microbe Infotech Laboratories Inc. of St. Louis, Missouri. Glyphosate is a powerful toxin to the human microbiome and is very likely a carcinogen. Interestingly, one of the most consistent medical findings in children with autism is the derangement of the health of gut, including the health of the microbiome.

And this week Arkansas has seen a large mumps outbreak in which over 90% of school-aged cases were fully vaccinated! Again, as physicians we should primarily be concerned with safety and efficacy…and it appears that the manufacturers of the MMR have much work ahead to allay the concerns of an increasingly skeptical and educated populace.

Follow the bouncing molecule…

telford-taylor-ig-farben-quoteSo, it is announced that Bayer is buying Monsanto. Combine Frankenstein with Dracula, the Hulk with Mr Hyde. Whatever. But the combination of these two giants — coupled with the enormous amount of $$$ they can bring to bear on governments and what they mandate — please once again review the definition of “fascism” — portends enormous implications for the general, and overall unsuspecting, citizenry… »

Hillary’s health might be a bigger matter than you think…

hrc-sickAfter Madame Hillary’s very untimely collapse at the 9/11 Memorial today — all of which was caught on video and is now viral — there has to be some grave concern about both perception and reality. The perception, of course, is that she might simply be tired, require some thyroid adjustment, was actually a little overheated (though it was only 84 degrees), etc, etc. But there is certainly a growing perception that she just cannot handle the pressure and the pace. But there might be a much more nefarious cause with a silver lining….

It’s not my job…

One of the troubling elements in moNot my jobdern healthcare is the degree to which over-specialization can distill common sense out of the complex equation of patient care. It is certainly not rare for a patient to go to prestigious clinics like Mayo, see an internal medicine specialist who notes a complaint of a sore shoulder, and be told that they are being referred to an orthopedist specializing in shoulder surgery.  Extra day(s), new visit schedule, additional extra tests at patient and insurer expense (“But it’s MAYO!”), and not a wit of additional investigation on the part of the original physician. Often, no real exam of the shoulder. How about a simple x ray? Did you fall on it?

The FDA once again does the bidding of the drug industry…

fda-corrupt

…by now changing the rules of the original Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994.  This was designed to allow Americans more access to health freedom and supplements in doses that previously had been very small.  Prior to that vitamin C was only available in doses of 60 mg or less, eg.  Under the guise of providing the patient public with a “greater level of safety”, the whole thing stinks of drug industry collusion with the government agency it essentially owns in order to impair competition and perhaps allow a drug company to patent a supplement.  Care to guess if this will possibly increase the price?  To wit…
