A modern day Noah in the form of a family physician…

Some people might remember Vladimir Zelenko MD as the otherwise obscure family physician who is a bit of an icon in his New York community and who was called upon to treat President Trump when he was infected with SARS-CoV-2. Many, of course, wished him ill and derided Dr Zelenko both for his “unproven” methods and because he was helping this particular president. However, all of his skills and treatments have  turned out to be incredibly prescient. A couple of weeks ago he held an unbelievable discussion with the rabbinical leaders in his Jewish community. This is required viewing to help those who are skeptical, fearful, and confused about what is going on right now in the world.  I will let him speak for himself.  If this plays poorly or keeps interrupting, go directly to the site here.

Free medical education for illegals
Free medical education for illegals

As astonishing as that sounds, it is true based on a recent news story that has popped up as a result of several states challenging President Obama’s “DACA” executive order.  The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or “DACA” is one of our creative president’s executive orders that protects the children of illegals who came here “through no fault of their own”.  Now the legal focus is on the use of taxpayer dollars to fund the medical education of these grown children:

The next time you consider a colonoscopy, remember that you have a 30% chance of incompetence

So-tell-me-everything-you-told-the-nurse-5-minutes-ago-Funny-medical-picturesShoving a large fiberoptic device where the sun don’t shine has become one of those hated rituals that we are all told to do in the interest of “prevention”. Well, first it is most definitely NOT prevention but rather earlier “detection” of cancers that have likely been brewing for years based on our understanding of the nature of colorectal cancer growth.

A major rearrangement of power in the health care system

… is underway and is being accomplished completely under the nose of the patient public, physicians, and even the legal profession.  Over the past year, there has been an effort to create a national consortium or commission that would effectively centralize the credentialing of medical licenses among the states.  »

The great cholesterol myth dies a slow death

gty_lipitor_tk_111129_mnOne would think that the $Bs spent on “getting my cholesterol checked” would have purchased an ounce of truth or benefit.
