How to increase your risk of dying? Take a statin drug

From Nov. 15: If you are elderly, how can you increase your risk of dying? The answer is simple: Take a statin drug. Statin drugs are the most profitable drugs for the Big Pharma Cartel. Lipitor, Baycol, Zocor and Crestor are examples of statin medications. These drugs are prescribed by doctors to lower cholesterol levels. Do statin drugs lower cholesterol levels? Yes, they are very efficient at it. They work by poisoning an enzyme — HMG-CoA reductase.

Corn syrup's mercury surprise
Citizens For Health
From July 3: If the specter of obesity and diabetes wasn't enough to turn you off high- fructose corn syrup, try this: New research suggests that the sweetener could be tainted with mercury, putting millions of children at risk for developmental problems. In 2004, Renee Dufault, an environmental health researcher at the Food and Drug Administration, stumbled upon an obscure Environmental Protection Agency report on chemical plants' mercury emissions. Some chemical companies, she learned, make lye by pumping salt through large vats of mercury.

Paleo and woo: Bad company until the day they die
ScienceBlogs
From March 29: There are many fallacies that undergird alternative medicine, which evolved into "complementary and alternative medicine," and for which the preferred term among its advocates is now "integrative medicine," meant to imply the "best of both worlds." In the minds of CAM proponents, old is more likely to have been based on nature and the naturalistic fallacy often correlates with the fallacy of antiquity.

A heretic's view of influenza's role in health and disease

From Jan. 18: We've all been taught that germs are bad, and they are lurking around every corner, waiting to invade defenseless humans. Doctors and the media talk about swine flu as though getting the flu is an inevitable catastrophe unless, of course, we are injected with the life-saving flu shot. We go to great lengths to combat these potential invaders: frequent hand-washing, learning to cough in our sleeves and grimacing at the thought of eating a morsel retrieved from the floor. Is all this necessary? Or is there a different view?

Concerns about the opt-out option of Medicare
Emord & Associates
From Feb. 8: Many physicians who choose not to participate in Medicare can opt-out of the program altogether. However, it is important that the process is done correctly. In order to opt out of Medicare, a physician must privately contract with his/her patient and submit an affidavit to his or her Medicare carrier. Failure to do this important step can cause the physician's attempt at opting out to be nullified and their private contracts with patients to become null and void. This can come at great expense to the physician.

Response to 'Paelo and woo' from ICIM member John Parks Trowbridge M.D.: Enrollment Catalyst
From March 29: As an acknowledged expert in Integrative Medicine for almost all of my almost 35 years in practice, I must offer this: All of the criticisms are well placed. I have long considered many "integrative" explanations to be WRONG, leading practitioners and devotees alike to wander down the wrong rabbit holes.

Healing with language: Goals
SCS Matters
Most of us know the value of setting goals. Some of us recognize the importance of goals being SMART: specific, measurable and meaningful, achievable, realistic and timed. Of course, well-formed goals are stated in the positive, focused on the process, stated in specific, sense-based terms, based on one's own actions and focused on present and future.
