Health Tip Of The Week...

Quote of the Year!
 
Dr. Anthony Morris, distinguished virologist and former Chief Vaccine Office at the FDA said this, "there is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza" and goes on to say, "The producers of these vaccines know they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway."

Top Ten Health Care Myths - Part 2 of 5

Last week, we started a new series of articles about health care myths.  We started with the myths that MD's are health experts (not so) and that you have no influence over your health (also, not true).  The series continues:
Myth #3 - Drugs prevent disease
Drugs do not prevent disease and drugs are not vitamins.  Drugs, at best, help make people comfortable and manage symptoms but do not prevent disease…never have.  Today, the drug makers are recommending drugs for healthy people to try and prevent health problems.
And, add to this the major Ad campaigns run by the drug makers to try and influence you that you SHOULD be taking something. 
Myth #4 - Hospitals are the place to go for health and healing
Emergency rooms and emergency room MD's do a great job saving lives BUT… To promote health and healing, hospitals are the very last place you want to find yourself.  Hospitals are generally unhealthy places infested with antibiotic-resistant superbugs.  Many hospitals serve both un-apetizing and unhealthy foods and lack proper sunlight.  No one has ever had a good night's sleep in a hospital.  Add to this the potentially deadly mistakes with drugs and surgical procedures that now appear to be frighteningly common in U.S. hospitals.
Myth #5 - People lose their health because of bad luck or bad genetics
This medical myth will have you believe that disease strikes without cause and therefore the patient cannot do anything to prevent disease...

The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…

Seems the flu shot is another medical myth worth noting.  According to Dr. Gary Null of the Progressive Radio Network, if the government insists on submitting the American population to a vaccine with a higher risk of adverse effects than its demonstrated effectiveness in preventing the flu, "We will have entered a new medical twilight zone, where true science, responsible medical practice, and reliable public health become virtually nonexistent."  Wow!

  • "I had become very frustrated with the way I was feeling. My headaches made me very tired and I would frequently have to nap after work or school instead of doing things I enjoyed. Occasionally, I would miss work because the pain was so severe."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
