The “Profitable Consumer”: Understanding their role in the Health Care, Agricultural, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industry?
If you owned a business that exponentially grew in value in relation to the increasing rates of illnesses and diseases, would you alter your business model to help society or continue to generate increasing revenue at society’s expense? We have a difficult time balancing our needs and wants for financial wealth with moral and ethical […]
Can We Rely On ANY Health Care System To Create Healthy Living?
The United States offers many opportunities in life that many other nations can’t match. Unfortunately, remaining HEALTHY as one ages is not one of these benefits. (REFERENCE: How the Performance of the U.S. Health Care System Compares Internationally) When comparing our Health Care System internationally, the U.S. ranked 11th out of 11 nations. We ranked […]
I’ll bet you never heard of House Resolution 327?
Whether you support or oppose a vaccination program, would you agree a congressional resolution (without any media exposure to provide public awareness) creates reason for possible skepticism. Rather than bore you with the entire document, (which you can read at this link: HOUSE RESOLUTION 327) the following excerpts (highlighted in red) will focus on points that […]
CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc… WHY WON’T YOU SHARE THESE HEALTH FINDINGS?
As the battlegrounds are drawn in the sand with an ongoing tug of war over the vaccine efficacy/safety issue, I stand on the sidelines marveling at the lack of concern by those most affected by its outcome. The TRUTH doesn’t seem to matter because the population at large doesn’t seem to care. As long as […]
ARE VACCINES A DISTRACTION?
Even if we credit vaccines with the prevention of diseases, have we missed the bigger picture regarding the OVERALL health and well being of our children? Have parents gradually shifted their role as “guardian” of their children’s health to the pediatrician/family physician? It might be worse than this. Many parents may have gone so far […]
THE OVER REACTION RESPONSE
THIS POST IS 1100 WORDS. IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH AND YOUR FAMILY’S HEALTH, I PROMISE YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED. Would you agree with me that selling a home and moving as a result of a backed up toilet would be an OVER REACTION RESPONSE? Sure, the annoyance/problem would no longer exist, but at […]
DAY ONE OF LIFE
This has to be one of the most exciting moments in a parent’s life. The birth of a child produces a love; a bond often exceeding human comprehension. A natural desire to protect this new beautiful life from any harm innately consumes the parents. Who better to team up with than the pediatrician who has […]
I THOUGHT MEDICAL DOCTOR’S KNEW?
What is a medical doctor’s education? It is an education based on a detailed curriculum that teaches the student the PATHWAY to evaluate disease and dysfunction and offer (in general) pharmaceutical means to deal with these conditions. An important component left out of this medical education is the LACK OF DETAILS to the pharmaceutical treatments […]
CHILDHOOD DISEASES: WORDS WITHOUT ACTIONS
How often do we hear statements like: . “I want my child to have a better life than I had growing up.” . OR “Our children are our future.” . We’d like to believe our heartfelt sentiments are more than just words, but do our ACTIONS reflect these emotions? . TYPE 1 AND TYPE 2 […]
“DON’T WORRY, IT’S SAFE”
What causes the disconnect between our eyes and our brains? How can we view this picture and not question the POSSIBILITY that pesticide spraying of our crops is detrimental to our HEALTH? How can we stare directly at the PROTECTIVE SUITS needed to apply these dangerous products and believe these poisons do not affect the […]
USING HOSTILITY POSITIVELY AND PRO-ACTIVELY
We can all agree releasing negative emotions in a positive manner is likely to create a better outcome then burying these emotions deep within ourselves. First, however, we must identify these negative emotions. I would like to create ONE for you whether or not you feel you have enough of your own. I’ll call it: […]
DECEPTION WITHOUT REMORSE
This post is 1075 words. If you care about your health, I would encourage you to take the time to read it. The average consumer bases their health treatments ENTIRELY on their family physician’s recommendations. Whether these doctors are medical physicians, chiropractic physicians, naturopathic physicians or osteopathic physicians their is GOOD REASON to question the […]
DO FEDERAL REGULATIONS PROTECT THE CONSUMER OR THE DRUG MANUFACTURERS?
On Dec. 14, 2016 the Federal Register contained an item (21 CFR Part 1308) that establishes a new drug code for “marihuana extract.” This new code (RECEIVING ZERO MEDIA ATTENTION) attempts to make CBD oil (an extract from BOTH HEMP AND MARIJUANA PLANTS) illegal. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? There is much controversy over the legalization […]
WHOSE JOB IS IT TO FIND CURES FOR CHRONIC DISEASES?
If someone asked you, “whose job is it to find cures for chronic diseases,” what would your answer be? Doctors? Pharmaceutical Companies? Researchers, Developers and Scientists? Most people probably believe at least one of these choices answers the question (if not a combination of these choices.) In this post, I’m going to try to convince […]
Filling A Prescription
Doctors will prescribe (according to the 2012 CDC statistics) 2.3 billion DRUGS to their patients over one year. Over 67% of routine office visits will conclude with a prescription. The top three prescriptions are: Analgesics (pain medication) Antihyperlipidemic agents (cholesterol medications) Antidepressants There are plenty of cases where prescriptions are indicated and necessary, but are […]
A DRUG FOR EVERY SYMPTOM
Even though I do not watch much television, I have recently noticed that advertisements for pharmaceutical drugs seem to be getting more air time than any other category of commercial (including beer and pizza!) Obviously the cost of airing these commercials are clearly offset by the profits generated as the consumer gains greater awareness of […]
How Does The Pharmaceutical Industry Determine Their Next Drug?
Cholesterol lowering medications were first introduced to the market in 1987 by Merck. In July of 2015 a new cholesterol lowering medication called Praluent was introduced to the market. On August 27, 2015 another new cholesterol lowering medication called Rapatha was approved by the FDA and became available for use. Web-MD lists over 50 drugs that […]
DO THE EXPERTS KNOW BEST?
Where do experts come from? They come from the general population and are differentiated only by their education and certifications. The title Expert can not be substituted with the title omnipotent. Experts make errors, falsify data, and lie just like members in the general population. Their titles add credibility to their work which sometimes receives favorable […]
