Let’s Set The Record Straight
Who Are The Real “Quacks” And “Snake Oil” Salesmen? Increasingly popular derogatory invectives like “quack” and “snake oil” actually have deeper historical roots than those who use them are aware of, and which indict the very conventional medical system they have uncritically adopted as the only one worth practicing. For many centuries, the Chinese used snake oil as a treatment for joint pain, arthritis, and bursitis. They brought this folk remedy with them when they arrived in the US in the mid-1800’s to build the Transcontinental Railroad. That was backbreaking work. Synthetic pain-killers such as aspirin were not yet freely available. When the Chinese workers offered their remedy to Westerners as a palliative it was likely perceived to be a “primitive” form of “quackery” by the medical experts of that time. This is one probable origin of the derogatory meaning of the word “snake oil.” On the other hand, the word “quack” as used today came from the German word for “quicksilver,” namely: “quecksilber” It is believed that American dentists shortened it to “quack” to describe the amalgam-hucksters. Quick-silver Associates write “It is sobering to realize that the original “quacks” were dentists who advocated the use of mercury amalgam.” Perhaps the most ironic thing about modern pharmaceutical “snake oil,” i.e. petrochemical-derived and patented synthetic chemicals, is that they often have considerably less value than a placebo, and in certain cases may not even compare in therapeutic value to actual snake oil. And that is over and above the fact that their safety is many orders of magnitude lower, with pharmaceuticals known to kill well over 100,000 patients each year in the U.S. even when correctly prescribed.
One in every 5 deaths in young adults is opioid-related in the United States: Study One out of every five deaths among young adults in the United States is related to opioids, suggests a study led by researchers in Canada. The study, published today in JAMA Network Open and led by St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, ON, found that the percentage of deaths attributable to opioids in the U.S. increased by 292 per cent from 2001 to 2016, with one in every 65 deaths related to opioid use by 2016. This number varied by age group and sex. Men represented nearly 70 per cent of all opioid deaths by 2016, and the highest burden was among young adults aged 24 to 35 years. This study expands on research in Canadian populations. “Despite the amount of attention that has been placed on this public health issue, we are increasingly seeing the devastating impact that early loss of life from opioids is having across the United States,” said Dr. Tara Gomes, a scientist in the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michael’s. “In the absence of a multidisciplinary approach to this issue that combines access to treatment, harm reduction and education, this crisis will impact the U.S. for generations.”

What’s In A Name? EVERYTHING
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:
Many breast cancer patients can skip chemo, big study finds Most women with the most common form of early-stage breast cancer can safely skip chemotherapy without hurting their chances of beating the disease, doctors are reporting from a landmark study that used genetic testing to gauge each patient’s risk. The study is the largest ever done of breast cancer treatment, and the results are expected to spare up to 70,000 patients a year in the United States and many more elsewhere the ordeal and expense of these drugs. “The impact is tremendous,” said the study leader, Dr. Joseph Sparano of Montefiore Medical Center in New York. Most women in this situation don’t need treatment beyond surgery and hormone therapy, he said.
New Immunotherapy Treatment Removes All Tumors In Woman With Advanced Metastatic BreastCancer Research published today in Nature Medicine by scientists at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has described a new immunotherapy approach, which led to a complete disappearance of tumors in a woman with advanced metastatic breast cancer who only had months to live. The findings show how naturally-occurring tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) were extracted from the patient’s tumor, grown outside of her body to boost their numbers and injected back into the patient to tackle the cancer. The patient had previously received several treatments including hormone therapies and chemotherapy, but nothing had stopped the cancer progressing. After the treatment, all of the patient’s tumors disappeared and 22 months later, she is still in remission.
Increase in lifestyle-related cancers over past decade spotlights need for prevention Lifestyle-related cancers, such as lung, colorectal, and skin cancers, have increased globally over the past decade, according to the most comprehensive analysis of cancer-related health outcomes and patterns ever conducted. “While the increase in lung, colorectal, and skin cancers over the past decade is concerning, the prevention potential is substantial,” said Dr. Christina Fitzmaurice, Assistant Professor of Global Health at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, whose organization coordinated the study. “Vital prevention efforts such as tobacco control, dietary interventions, and broader health promotion campaigns need to be scaled up in response to this rise in lifestyle-related cancers.” The study, published today in JAMA Oncology, covers 1990 to 2016; it is part of the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study, a comprehensive effort to quantify health internationally. Researchers reviewed 29 cancer groups, including lung, breast, prostate, skin, colorectal, pancreatic, stomach, and liver cancers, as well as leukemia and other cancer groups (full list below). The study provides findings by age and sex for 195 countries and territories.
Mask-wearing should be the focus of flu prevention campaigns A PUSH to protect people against the flu with a “weak” vaccine is overshadowing effective prevention methods such as handwashing and mask-wearing, warns a public health expert. Dr Chris Del Mar, Professor of Public Health at Bond University has challenged the value of influenza vaccinations while speaking at the GPs Down Under Conference on the Gold Coast. He claims the influenza vaccine has been “oversold” in Australia and said handwashing and mask-wearing should be the focus of flu prevention campaigns. Prof Del Mar pointed to a review that found seasonal flu vaccines only reduced the rate of laboratory confirmed influenza cases by between 1 to 2 per cent. “Influenza is indeed a true threat to public health and I am not a vaccine sceptic in general, but annual influenza vaccinations do little to protect against serious illness,” Prof Del Mar told AAP.
New findings demonstrate how the food we eat affects biochemical signals in the gut For years, researchers have studied how the body’s microbiome impacts virtually every aspect of human health ranging from the immune system to mental wellness. But, a recent study led by a multi-institutional research team, including the University of Maryland, several institutions in South Korea, and Purdue University, sheds new light on how the food we eat can affect the biochemical signaling processes in the gut microbiome. The study, published today in Science Advances, is one of the first to link what we eat – and the generation of glucose – to a bacterial signaling process known as “quorum sensing.” This process involves the synthesis of small signaling molecules, called autoinducers (AI), which are secreted by individual bacteria but serve to coordinate their responses. Once the AI level reaches a threshold – signaling a “quorum” of cells – the AI signals are transported intracellularly, where they activate gene expression and enable coordinated phenotypic responses.
Should I Sign The AAP Doctor’s Form to Refuse Vaccines for My Child? With the United States having descended into an authoritarian society, the ability to make even the most personal and important choices is disappearing every day. First, public schools began strictly enforcing vaccine policies, forcing parents to acquire exemption forms if they did not want to jab their children with toxic chemicals before sending them into one of the most remedial educational systems in the world. Then, states began passing laws eliminating those exemptions. Soon after that, insurance companies and fanatical authoritarian doctors began acting as “enforcement” arms and bullies to force parents into vaccinating their children. Many of these doctors have betrayed their Hippocratic oath by refusing to see unvaccinated children as patients. Others have even gone so far as to contact DSS/CPS and report parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. While some of these doctors will see unvaccinated children as patients, before they will do so they are attempting to force parents into signing a form designed by the American Academy of Pediatrics that states that the parent is aware that vaccines work and that they are endangering their child by not having their child vaccinated.
