Health Alerts - Choose Wisely - True Facts and Fallacies

It has become necessary to add this page to Health Alerts
because of the serious nature of medications.

Medically induced conditions are escalating quite seriously.
Lawsuits are on the rise because of malpractice, defective drugs
and scandalously dishonest pharmaceutical manufacturers
who's glory is their shame. You owe it to yourself and family
to be informed about these things. Maybe for a good friend!

My advice to Readers: Don’t turn your body into a money making machine – Companies like the above have no conscience when it comes to profit. Neither do GP/MDs often because their dispensing of medications is often accompanied with careless neglect to do their homework (check things out) but concern themselves with what the drug companies tell them in blind trust while expecting you to do the same.

Did you know that Medical Practitioners are given attractive incentives for
prescribing various medications?

Sadly to say, some attract more commission than others.
Here, I would like to commend three dedicated GPs in Australia I know.

The 1st one is very sparing with Anti-Pain medications and prescribes Pain Management and reading about natural cures because he knows the negative ramifications of taking too much or too many. Also, he is not quick
to prescribe Statins and certain medications that are new on the market.
The 2nd one sent a Company Representative out on his heels (so to speak) rather than take risks with his patients. I heard the young man say “the benefits outweigh the risks” as he was chased out of there.  For those who don’t know, they are legal drug-pushers who peddle for profits. You may have seen one occasional at your local clinic – they carry briefcases in their hands with sophisticated material and free samples.
The 3rd one asked me on one occasion if I was out of any scripts and refused to dispense one when he thought it was doubling up. I said to check out the files and he would discover my words were true that I seldom often take one (because there would be only 1-2 pkts of 30 prescribed in a year) and take natural measures first. He was starting out careful. He actually said “you can’t have whatever you want” I wish more practitioners were
responsible like that!

Many practitioners are lazy with homework and observations when it comes to prescribing  medications, their knowledge consists mostly of what the manufacturers tell them. Some GP/MDs have certain ones they stay with
and others are influenced by the visiting company representatives with whatever comes out that gives them
a good impression. It is good to be thorough when dispensing scripts that could make or break
someone's health or their pocket.

These things were necessary to tell you because most of the public are unaware of them. Please do not subscribe to the theory that "they can do no wrong" because that is proven not to be true to countless patients every day.
We do not live in a perfect world. Therefore both you and your practitioner should be very careful.
That's an absolute necessity! They are not God, they are not your hero, they are fallible like you and me.
I do not mean to undermine your confidence in your practitioner but sometimes we can be too confident.


The Cholesterol Scare Campaign Goes On
Watch out For Statin Pushers!

Now in both the USA and UK, Medical Practitioners are being encouraged by Big Pharma to
prescribe EVEN MORE statins.
But thank God for Practitioners with integrity because many are now stepping forward and speaking out against what could well be the biggest Medical Fraud of all time. How much integrity does your GP/MD have?

Statin drugs Cause problems they are Marketed to Solve

In a counter attack to the claimed benefits of statin drugs, newly published research has found that statin drug use leads to accelerated coronary artery and aortic artery calcification, both of which greatly contribute to cardiovascular disease and mortality. The new study comes on top of findings that led the FDA to mandate adding “diabetes risk” to the warning label of statin drugs.
The latest discovery makes it clear that statin drugs not only carry a significant risk of developing type 2 diabetes, they also accelerate the cardiovascular complications associated with diabetes. This has to be particularly disconcerting to the pharmaceutical companies since they have been marketing statins to reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, not accelerate it.
According to Dr. Arthur Agatston, cardiologist and author of the South Beach diet books, coronary calcium is the best predictor of who will have a heart attack and who will not. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that coronary calcium was six times more accurate in predicting an impending heart attack than the risk factor of a family history of coronary heart disease.
Are statin drugs YET ANOTHER Big Pharma fraud designed to milk the consumer at the ultimate cost of his health and longevity? Is government YET AGAIN aiding and abetting its criminal pals in the pharmaceutical industry?
Here’s a summary of the Great Statins Scandal to date:

Now, a group in the U.K. reports that the Cholesterol Treatment Trialists’ (CTT) Collaboration in Oxford has an agreement to keep secret much of the information contained in its vast database concerning results from 27 trials

New Light on Cholesterol and Heart
Recently, I discovered  that Cholesterol  is not  really the  culprit  of so  many  heart attacks and disease from
a well respected pioneer in the Medical Profession that almost cost him his career when  he  first came  out with his findings_ his peers  ridiculed him  for his  work  but later (more recently) have come to respect him a great deal.

Role of Cholesterol and the Cholesterol Myth.
