Hour 1 – Olivia Newton John Cancer Update
Olivia Newton-John is battling cancer for the third time Australian superstar Olivia Newton-John has revealed she is again battling cancer, her third diagnosis in three decades, during an interview broadcast on Sunday night. Speaking to CNN-affiliate Seven’s “Sunday Night,” the singer-songwriter said was treating the cancer with “modern” medicines and natural remedies after being told in 2017 she had cancer at the base of her spine. “My husband’s always there, and he’s always there to support me, and I believe I will win over it and that’s my goal,” she told Seven. Newton-John, who will turn 70 in a few weeks, was catapulted to fame when she starred opposite actor John Travolta in the high school musical “Grease.” Since then she has released multiple number one hit singles as well as touring internationally. In 2017 she was touring the United States with her new album “Live On.” She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 which she overcame, in the process becoming a fierce advocate for breast cancer screening. The singer has a cancer center named after her in Melbourne, Australia, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness Research Center.
For new cancer treatments, less is more Tom Maguire always figured that, if he ever developed cancer, he would pursue the toughest treatment available. “You destroy yourself, and then you can come back,” he said. His view was tested earlier this year when he was diagnosed with bladder cancer that had invaded the muscle wall of the organ. The standard of care, he learned, usually involves removing the bladder. He would have the choice of permanently wearing a bag to collect his urine or having a difficult surgery to fashion a new bladder from his intestines. Both prospects filled the 63-year-old avid hiker and scuba diver with dread. Then doctors at Philadelphia’s Fox Chase Cancer Center told him about a new clinical trialdesigned to allow people with certain types of tumors to keep their bladders while being closely monitored. Since getting into the trial a few months ago, “I have been walking on air,” he said. “I guess you don’t always have to take an all-in, nuclear approach.”
Questions of The Day!
I am wondering if you can provide a link for how you recommend eating? My health journey has been a very long one and I’m feel discouraged. I met you years ago in Atlanta at WAPF conference. I have come to gallbladder problems recently and my husband’s health isn’t great either now. Following paleo/ high fat diet I feel has been a bad move for us after all. What to do, what to do? We are too young, mid 30s with little children! Thank you! – Rachel
Watched your video “Question of The Day – Nebulizing silver hydrosol for lung health recovery” and have one more question … how many times a day should you nebulize?
Loved the video btw.
Cannabis PhD takes higher education to a new level Deron Caplan’s brain has been hooked on pot for years. And for the casual, infrequent marijuana user, it’s paid off in Canada’s first PhD in cannabis production. “It (cannabis) is not really a big part of my life outside of the science,” says Caplan, who earned his doctoral degree from the University of Guelph in late August. “There is a need for the science and there is a market and there are people that are growing it and they are going to have to grow it safely and make money … and they can’t just make it all up themselves.” As the country prepares to open up a multibillion dollar cannabis market Oct. 17, the newly minted pot doctor knows he’s taking his degree into the business at the perfect time.
Marijuana Bill Scheduled For Congressional Vote This Week The U.S. House panel that oversees federal drug enforcement is scheduled to vote this week on a bill to dramatically expand opportunities for research on the medical benefits of marijuana. Sponsored by Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and 40 bipartisan cosponsors, the Medical Cannabis Research Act would require that the federal government issue more licenses to grow marijuana to be used in scientific studies, among other changes. For the past half century, a farm at the University of Mississippi has been the sole legal source of cannabis for research. But scientists have often complained that it is difficult to obtain product from the facility and that it is often of low quality. “The federal government should not stand in the way of collaboration that can help people live better lives,” Gaetz said in a phone interview about the proposed expansion, which will go before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
Glyphosate Case Highlights Pesticide Dilemma in Cannabis Industry A ground-breaking legal case on a popular herbicide producer’s responsibility for cancers ended on Aug. 10 when a San Francisco jury awarded $289 million in damages to a school grounds-keeper suffering from lymphoma. As SFGate reported, the jury unanimously found that Monsanto was responsible for Dewayne “Lee” Johnson’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and should have known of the threat posed by his on-the-job exposure to glyphosate, an herbicide marketed by the company under the brand names Roundup and Ranger Pro. Jurors found that Monsanto had “acted with malice or oppression” when it sold glyphosate to Johnson’s employer, the Benicia Unified School District, without informing of its potential health risks. To what extent is chemical exposure to pesticides and herbicides a concern for the cannabis industry — either for workers or consumers?
Kudos To The State of Maine!
Food Freedom Flourishes in Maine: Model for Other States? Food freedom is flourishing in the State of Maine. A year after the governor of Maine signed “the Maine Food Sovereignty Act,” many Maine towns have responded to the new law by adopting ordinances that give their residents the legal right to sell food to one another without burdensome regulations. There are good reasons to permit farmers and home-based food processors such as bakers to sell food to their neighbors without oversight, but in most every state this is not permitted. It’s not about food safety, but about corporate control of the food system. In communities that have adopted local food sovereignty ordinances: A cheesemaker can sell cheese directly from his home refrigerator. A baker can sell a pie directly from her kitchen. A family can sell excess raw milk from the family cow to neighbors. In short, the new Maine law permits towns to choose the level of freedom that residents have for face-to-face sales of food products that are sold from the farm or home where they are produced.
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:
It’s Hard for Doctors to Unlearn Things. That’s Costly for All of Us. We know it can be hard to persuade physicians to do some things that have proven benefits, such as monitor blood pressure or keep patients on anticoagulants. But it might be even harder to get them to stop doing things. In May, a systematic review in JAMA Pediatrics looked at the medical literature related to overuse in pediatric care published in 2016. The articles were ranked by the quality of methods; the magnitude of potential harm to patients from overuse; and the potential number of children that might be harmed. In 2016 alone, studies were published that showed that we still recommend that children consume commercial rehydration drinks (like Pedialyte), which cost more, when their drink of choice would do. We give antidepressants to children too often. We induce deliveries too early, instead of waiting for labor to kick in naturally, which is associated with developmental issues in children born that way. We get X-rays of ankles looking for injuries we almost never find. And although there’s almost no evidence that hydrolyzed formulas do anything to prevent allergic or autoimmune disease, they’re still recommended in many guidelines.
Why so many people with autism never make it to their 40th birthday. Elizabeth* has a six-year-old daughter with autism, who she describes as “extraordinary, bright, inquisitive, sensitive, kind, fiery and impulsive”. Sarah* was diagnosed when she was five, but even before that, her mum started noticing a common theme in her emotional responses: distress. “My daughter was three years old when I began to see that she was suffering from anxiety,” Elizabeth tells Mamamia. “Her responses were often extreme to certain situations.” Now, as a primary school student, “She is, more often than not, quite stressed and extremely heightened.” Early intervention, however, including “a combination of medication and professional treatment,” has vastly improved Sarah’s quality of life. She hasn’t been bullied at school, she’s able to make and retain friendships, and she’s been taught how to remove herself from a situation when she starts to feel overwhelmed.
MORE studies confirm the link between childhood vaccines and autism While the pharmaceutical industry, and their puppets in mainstream medicine and media, continue to claim that there is no link between vaccines and autism, multiple scientific reviews have confirmed what we’ve long suspected: A common vaccine ingredient is indeed connected to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). As World Mercury Project reports, two recent studies have highlighted the potential role mercury exposure plays in the onset of ASD. Ethylmercury is used to make thimerosal, a popular vaccine preservative that’s 50-percent mercury by weight. Ethylmercury is one of the two most common forms of mercury that people are exposed to. Ethylmercury is a type of inorganic mercury, which makes it different from the organic methylmercury found in fish. Vaccine propagandists say that this means thimerosal is safe — but a substantial (and growing) body of research has shown this assertion to be false.
The suppressed truth about Tylenol: It’s toxic to children If you were to ask your average mainstream doctor, or investigate the issue in official scientific journals, chances are you’d discover that acetaminophen (Tylenol) is generally classified as being safe for pregnant women and developing children. But a closer look at actual science tells a much different story. While the internet is saturated with seemingly scientific information about the alleged safety and effectiveness of Tylenol, there also exists copious evidence to the contrary, suggesting that this popular pain drug is particularly harmful for children. These damaging effects can also be passed down from mother to child during pregnancy. Dr. William Parker, Ph.D., an associated professor at Duke University, in an analysis compiled for GreenMedInfo.com, unpacks many of the known dangers associated with Tylenol, including the drug’s neurotoxic properties that are especially problematic in young people whose brains are still in the developmental phase.
Study: Painkillers linked to increased risk of heart attack, stroke Many people reach for painkillers to get rid of headaches or reduce fever, but some of those common medicines could raise your risk of heart disease or stroke, according to a new report. Researcher from Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark recently conducted a study, published in the British Medical Journal, to explore the cardiovascular risks associated with diclofenac, a traditional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). To do so, they used national registry data that included information on 6.3 million adults in Denmark. The participants, aged 46 to 56, were split into groups with either low, moderate or high baseline cardiovascular risk and were followed for 20 years from 1996 until 2016. They found that, within 30 days of starting diclofenac, there was an increased rate of major adverse cardiovascular events, such as irregular heart beat or flutter, ischemic stroke, heart failure and heart attack, compared to those starting other traditional NSAIDs.
