Forbes Attacks Traditional Chinese Medicine
WHO Endorses TCM. Expect Deaths To Rise. A few days ago, a news story in the journal Nature reported that the World Health Organization, which is supposed to be devoted to improving the health and medical care of people around the globe, will for the first time endorse a belief system called “traditional Chinese medicine.” I’m labeling TCM a belief system because that’s what it is–but the WHO will be endorsing it as a set of medical practices. The Nature writer, David Cyranoski, presents this news in a classic two-sides-of-the-story format, describing the “endless hours” that TCM proponents spent on such important topics as the “correct location of acupuncture points and less commonly known concepts such as ‘triple energizer meridian’ syndrome.” Later in the article (but much later), he points out that scientists have argued that qi and meridians simply don’t exist. Cyranoski also falls into the trap of using the phrase “Western medicine” as if it were just an alternative point of view. An apt response is this comment from a biology Ph.D. student, who goes by @astrelaps on Twitter: “What a weak, equivocal article from the world’s preeminent scientific journal. “For those steeped in Western medicine…” is like writing “For those steeped in climate science” or “For those steeped in evolutionary biology” when reporting on climate change denial or creationism.”
Questions of The Day!
My 13 year old daughter is noticing her hair thinning. She has no medical conditions that we are aware of, and we do not have her on any medications. Are there any vitamins or minerals that you would recommend for hair growth?
I recently stumbled on your aloe silver protocol and would really love to try it. I’ve had rapidly increasing GI problems over the past 6 months that I’m trying to address as my husband and I would like to start trying to conceive next year. I eat very clean (grass fed meats, organic produce, properly prepared grains, etc) but I seem to be forming intolerances quickly. I react very poorly to probiotics currently. I’ve tried different versions, but they all cause either days of constipation or urgent diarrhea. I know the protocol recommends replacing good bacteria at night with probiotics. Should I push through the probiotic side effects or wait a week or so into the protocol before adding them? Also, how do you know when to stop the protocol?
Thank you for your time! – Katie
Hi Robert i am a big fan of yours and have been listening to some of your shows about HIV testing i have also started the Aloa and Colloidal Silver protocol and my acid reflux has decreased a lot. I am also convinced the HIV tests are a fraud however one issue still escapes me. How come a lot of gay people test positive (whatever that is) compared to none gay people. Thanks i appreciate your probably a busy guy but if you could help i would appreciate it. – Mike from Dubai
Grandfather and Grandsons Detained by Officer, Kicked Out of Park for Drinking Kombucha Tea Sid Tatem was trying to enjoy a picnic at Chesapeake’s Northwest River Park last week, but an overzealous park ranger quickly ruined the family outing. The ranger approached Tatem and sons inquiring about what they were drinking. Turns out the trio was enjoying some of grandpa’s homemade Kombucha, a fermented tea that has been around for thousands of years. Ranger Michael Peters was informed by Tatem the mixture might have residual alcohol from its fermentation but it could hardly be considered an alcoholic beverage. Kombucha is the fermented tea that is sold in nearly every store across the country and which has an alcohol content so low that children can purchase it legally. Currently quite a health food rage, it’s loaded with probiotics, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory substances. In other words, it’s really good for you and your body. However, Peters detained the family, confiscated the Kombucha, forced them to pour it out and promptly kicked the innocent grandfather and his grandchildren out of the park. The three had made a day visiting Tatem’s father’s grave and decided to stop by the park and enjoy some food and family time.
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:
Nobel Prize in Medicine awarded to two researchers who discoveredhow to make the immune system fight cancer This morning, the Nobel Prize committee awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine to two scientists who, separately, discovered proteins that “brake” the immune system — work that paved the way for what the committee calls “an entirely new principle for cancer therapy.” The winners are James P. Allison of the United States and Tasuku Honjo of Japan. Working in the 1990s, both scientists studied proteins that regulate the immune system and keep it in check. For Allison, this protein was CTLA-4 protein, while Honjo studied a protein called PD-1. Both CTLA-4 and PD-1 regulate the immune system and keep it from being too aggressive. Therefore, it’s possible to use an antibody to target these proteins and shut them down. When these proteins are shut down, and the brakes “released,” our body’s immune system can go on the attack against cancerous tumors, a form of treatment today called immunotherapy. (Both proteins brake the immune system, just in different ways.)
Health-related quality of life overlooked in cancer drug studies A McMaster University-led review and analysis of randomized clinical trials is questioning whether interventions which prolong progression-free survival in cancer patients, improve their health-related quality of life. The systematic review and quantitative analysis of 52 articles reporting on 38 randomized clinical trials involving 13,979 cancer patients across 12 cancer types revealed no significant association between survival when the disease is not getting worse, or “progression-free survival”, and health-related quality of life. The results were published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Internal Medicine. “Given the increased use of progression-free survival as the primary outcome in new oncology drug trials, and uncertainty of overall survival, it remains possible that patients are receiving toxic and/or expensive treatments without experiencing important benefit,” said Feng Xie, senior author of the study and a professor of the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact at McMaster.
Financial Incentives for Doctors to Vaccinate as Many Children as Possible – Keep Patients on Statins There are monetary awards for doctors and other mainstream medical practitioners who maintain high levels of compliance for prescription drugs (including vaccines), and doctors’ visits. These incentives to get more patients into their offices and to receive as many vaccines and prescription drugs as possible come from the insurance industry. In 2016, the evidence for these medical financial kickbacks was displayed online with a pamphlet from Blue Cross (BC), Blue Shield (BS), and Blue Cross Network (BCN). Here’s a screenshot of page 15 from their 2016 Provider Incentive Program pamphlet that offers financial awards for maintaining CDC vaccination schedules.
New Zealand Parents Say Rotavirus Vaccine Nearly Killed Their Baby The rotavirus vaccine is one of the most popular immunizations on the schedule. While it is mostly an understated part of the vaccine process, some parents in New Zealand are raising awareness for the vaccine’s potential deadly side. David and Sonya Cooper were interviewed in the New Zealand Herald following their infant’s battle with the rotavirus vaccine side effects. “Ripped to shreds with stress,” they said as their baby was wisked away by surgeons at Auckland’s Starship children’s hospital. While their baby Jude made it through surgery, he remains under close watch by hospital staff. Sonya says that following the rotavirus vaccine, Jude changed. “He started refusing feeds, his nappies dried up and he was constantly grizzly, lethargic and spent his day flopped in pain in my arms.” He was vomitting and his conditioned worsed, symptoms which were seemingly derived from the rotavirus vaccine.
The gut bacteria and genetics research trying to unlock the secrets of autism In Northland in mid-winter, 10-year-old Amy was worried the unwell and unwanted animals at the local SPCA branch must be getting cold. She drew an abstract artwork, had it photocopied and sold the copies across the neighbourhood. “We went to the SPCA and gave it the money,” says her mother, Lynne Hansen. “It was all her idea. She has an amazing little mind, and so much empathy.” Even as a preschooler, however, there were signs something “wasn’t quite right”. Amy was emotive, reactive and easily frustrated when she could not convey her feelings. “She was a very independent little girl, not very huggy, very inflexible in her thinking. You felt at a loss because you didn’t know how to help this lovely, curly-haired little girl – it was an awful time.” Amy was seven when she was diagnosed with autism but Hansen recognised the signs long before then. “She is intelligent, animated, but she struggles to manage herself. She is a perfectionist – if she hasn’t got a clear pathway from start to finish where she can succeed, she will have a meltdown. So I knew Amy was on the spectrum – I just did not have the diagnostic piece of paper.”
