Monday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
How the media convinces us we’re all outraged — even when no one cares I’m outraged. You’re outraged. They’re all outraged. We’re all outraged!!! Except, what if we’re not? The Associated Press reported that Gillette’s new toxic-masculinity ad caused an “online uproar.” “Gillette Ad With a #MeToo Edge Attracts Support and Outrage,” claimed The New York Times. “Gillette faces backlash and boycott over ‘#MeToo advert,” ran a typical headline in the BBC this week. Outrage? Uproar? Backlash? I’d say it’s more like a hacklash. It’s journalists dealing out pretend outrage. Lazy media reporters who are too lazy to even actually speak to people anymore are instead constructing Potemkin Villages of fake hate, fake disgust and fake outrage. They’re Contemptkin Villages. No one really lives there. The laziest hacks can build them using tweets, even tweets from anonymous Twitter accounts. Somehow these hacks are employed at places like the BBC and the Times.
Special Guest Morley Robbins
Morley M. Robbins (aka. “Magnesium Man”) has a mainstream medical industry background. That’s intriguing when you consider that he is now devoted to promoting natural and preventive health solutions. Morley had been a hospital executive and consultant for 32 years when, several years ago, he developed a condition called “frozen shoulder.” His family doctor quickly recommended surgery as the only hope for Morley if he wanted to be able to lift his right hand above his waist ever again. Friends who owned a health food store intervened and encouraged Morley to try chiropractic care. His initial response: “Thanks guys, but I don’t do witchcraft.” Several months later, the pain was wearing on him, and his friends insisted. It only took a couple weeks of “light touch chiropractic care” (Network Spinal Analysis) before his shoulder had full range of motion once again. The experience was so life-changing for Morley, he questioned everything he knew — or thought he knew — about healing. He left the world of hospital administration and became a Wellness Coach.
‘Stealth condition’ found to multiply risk of cancer and chronic conditions, study reveals A “stealth condition” which is one of the western world’s most common genetic disorders is causing far higher levels of cancer and chronic health conditions than previously thought, a UK study has revealed. Hereditary hemochromatosis — a genetic condition which leads to a toxic build-up of iron in the body — was previously thought to be a low-level health risk. However, a new study, published Wednesday in the British Medical Journal, has revealed that the condition in fact quadruples the risk of liver disease and doubles the risk of arthritis and frailty in older demographics. It also leads to a higher risk of chronic pain and diabetes. The condition, which is caused by individuals having mutations on both copies of the HFR gene, causes individuals to absorb too much iron, which subsequently accumulates around the body and can eventually lead to organ damage. The study, which is largest of its kind and analyzed data from 2,890 people carrying the mutations, revealed that in men of European ancestry in Britain, 5.8% of liver cancers and 1.6% of hip replacements were caused by the condition.
Louisiana eye doctor offers free exams for NFL refs after Saints crushing loss A Louisiana eye doctor has graciously offered free eye exams to the NFL referees who oversaw the New Orleans Saints’ crushing overtime loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. Taking to Facebook after the game, which headed into overtime shortly after a controversial no-call late in the game’s fourth quarter, Louisiana Family Eyecare said it would “hate for someone else to feel our pain.” “After having time to consider things we will GLADLY provide no-cost eye exams to all NFL officials prior to next season to prevent the atrocity that occurred tonight,” the post read. “We would hate for someone else to feel our pain.” Many heartbroken members of Who Dat Nation found humor in the gesture, offering their own “free services” of sorts, including for “free swamp tours.” A dentist in Texas said the invitation extended to any referees visiting their area as well.
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
ANTI-VAX MOVEMENT LISTED BY WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION AS ONE OF THE TOP 10 HEALTH THREATS FOR 2019 The World Health Organization (WHO) has listed vaccine hesitancy—the delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccines despite their availability—as one of its top 10 health threats facing the world in 2019. The phenomenon has taken hold in a number of countries around the world in recent times, and notably in the U.S. as well. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that while coverage of most recommended vaccines remained relatively stable and high in 2017 for American children aged 19 to 35 months, the percentage who have received no vaccinations has quadrupled since 2001. According to a recent study published in the journal PLOS ONE, increasing numbers of people in many U.S. states now hold anti-vaccination views.
Question of The Day!
My sister-in-law was diagnosed with (CLL) Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, over a year ago. Recently her results got worse and doctors seem very negative and killing any hope, telling her it’s the kind of cancer that can never be healed. I know they are full of poop and would never recommend alternative holistic options. Please advise if you had any success treating CLL. Taking Selenium, Chromium and Silica seem obvious. But I need your professional opinion, please
How to Inoculate Against Anti-Vaxxers The World Health Organization has ranked vaccine hesitancy — the growing resistance to widely available lifesaving vaccines — as one of the top 10 health threats in the world for 2019. That news will not come as a surprise in New York City, where the worst measles outbreak in decades is now underway. Nor in California or Minnesota, where similar outbreaks unfolded in 2014 and 2017, respectively. Nor in Texas, where some 60,000 children remain wholly unvaccinated thanks in part to an aggressive anti-vaccine lobby. Leading global health threats typically are caused by the plagues and perils of low-income countries — but vaccine hesitancy is as American as can be. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the percentage of children who are unvaccinated has quadrupled since 2001, even though the overall utilization of most vaccines remains high. More than 100,000 American infants and toddlers have received no vaccines whatsoever, and millions more have received only some crucial shots.
About One In 20 American Children Have Depression Or Anxiety, Study Reveals Analysis of nationwide data revealed that 2.6 million American children — more than 1 in every 20 — were diagnosed with anxiety and/or depression between 2011 and 2012. According to the report, anxiety in children and adolescents increased in the United States, while depression diagnoses have remained at the same levels as previous studies. Researchers analyzed data from the nationally representative National Survey of Children’s Health for 2003, 2007, and 2011 through 2012. In 2011 to 2012, 65,000 parents were asked about their children’s problems with anxiety and/or depression that has been diagnosed by a doctor or another healthcare professional. The children in question were aged six to 17 years. In the most recent survey, 5.3% of children and teens were diagnosed with current anxiety or depression. The percentage of children with current anxiety in 2007 was 3.5%. In 2011-12, it was 4.1%. The percentage of children with current depression rose from 2.5% in 2007 to 2.7% in 2012.
Energizing the immune system to eat cancer Immune cells called macrophages are supposed to serve and protect, but cancer has found ways to put them to sleep. Now researchers at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania say they’ve identified how to fuel macrophages with the energy needed to attack and eat cancer cells. It is well established that macrophages can either support cancer cell growth and spread or hinder it. But most tumors also express a signal called CD47, which can lull macrophages into a deep sleep and prevent them from eating. Researchers have found that rewiring macrophage metabolism can overcome this signal and act like an alarm clock to rouse and prepare macrophages to go to work. Their findings were published in Nature Immunology today. Macrophages are immune cells just like T and B cells, but differ in that they can eat cells that are not supposed to be in the body. In fact, they are the most prominent immune cell found in cancer, but unfortunately, most are often convinced to help cancer grow and spread. Cancer cells frequently stop macrophages from attacking them by expressing CD47, a “don’t eat me” signal. Researchers now say that merely blocking inhibitory signals like CD47 is not always sufficient to convince macrophages to attack cancer. Instead, two signals are required. First, they need a signal to activate them—such as a toll-like receptor agonist. After that, a second signal—such as a CD47 inhibitor—can lower the threshold needed to wage battle on the cancer.
