Orthodox Jewish communities face antisemitism over measles outbreak Orthodox Jewish communities in Brooklyn grappling with a measles outbreak say they are now dealing with a second scourge: fear, profiling and antisemitism inspired by the outbreak. Incidents have piled up in recent weeks as measles cases continued to rise, community leaders say: a bus driver allegedly refused to stop for a Hassidic man, and then covered her face and shouted “measles” at him when he eventually got on. A flight crew sparked a brief quarantine when they saw an Orthodox Jewish child with mosquito bites and mistook them for measles. In other cases, advocates say, business associates have declined to meet people in person and asked to do transactions over the phone. Hassidic passengers have hailed Uber pool rides and seen their fellow passenger get out when they enter the car. “There have been many incidents where there have been these antisemitic, biased slurs against members of the community,” said Rabbi David Niederman, president of the United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg. “It’s like a license to be antisemitic and say what’s on your mind, and you don’t have to hide it.”
Questions of The Day!
Hello RSB, can you tell me if there is anything that can be done once diagnosed with a hernia? Can anything help it other than surgery? The mesh they use causes problems. Thank you as always. Lori
So, tell me oh learned ones. Where can procurement of these magical homeopathic remedies be made? A little coaching to go with them would be nice.

Hi Dr. Robert and Super Don,
I purchased some colloidal trace minerals from a company called Source Naturals-I hope I purchased the right “stuff” the ingredients read as followed
Trace minerals and electrolyte complex from a combination of colloidally suspended minerals and desalinated seawater and methylparaben-what do you think of this product?
Xenobiotics In Vaccines: The Place To Start REAL Scientific Investigations Since vaccine issues are ramping up on both sides of that unique ‘political spectrum’, i.e., legislation introduced almost daily at both state and federal levels, which specifically mandate vaccines while adding penalties for not submitting oneself or one’s children to “poison darts” called vaccinations, AND consumer push-back more evident now than ever, I thought it might be helpful to understanding and to discussing intelligently the topic of toxic vaccines and their ingredients [Xenobiotics] IF there were broader or more comprehensible information, including definitions of just what is in most, if not all, vaccines. Thanks, and a big hat tip to Eileen Dannemann for sharing recent information wherein I found a most significant file titled “Vaccine Ingredients” published online by WAVE (Worldwide Association For Vaccine Education) embedded wherein vaccine ingredients are listed alphabetically along with their chemical signatures; possible/probable adverse health effects and/or reactions; and even their common industrial uses.
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:
Monsanto Has Been Ordered To Pay More Than $2 Billion To A Couple With Cancer A California jury awarded $2 billion on Monday to an elderly couple that developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after years of using Monsanto’s popular weed killer Roundup, delivering a major blow to the agrochemical giant. The jury found the company failed to warn consumers that Roundup could cause cancer, attorneys said, dealing the company its third major loss in court in a series of lawsuits claiming the herbicide was behind the development of cancer. “Two billion dollars in punitive damages is as clear a statement as you can get that they [Monsanto] have to change what they’re doing,” Brent Wisner, who represented Alva and Alberta Pilliod, said in at a press conference. “Monsanto needs to change its conduct.” A spokesperson for Bayer, the parent company for Monsanto, told BuzzFeed News the company believed the $2 billion punitive judgment was “excessive and unjustifiable” and it planned to appeal the decision. “Bayer is disappointed with the jury’s decision and will appeal the verdict in this case,” the company said.
For people with strong life purpose, making healthier choices may be less effortful, new study shows Ever wonder how some people seem to meet their fitness goals with ease and love eating healthy foods while others constantly struggle to do either? According to a new study from the Communication Neuroscience Lab at the Annenberg School, people with stronger life purpose are more likely to accept messages promoting health behavior change than those with a weaker sense of purpose. And this might be because they experience less decisional conflict while considering health advice. “Purpose in life has been robustly associated with health in previous studies,” says postdoctoral fellow Yoona Kang, lead author of the study, “but the mechanism through which life purpose may promote healthy living has been unclear.” For this study, published in Health Psychology, Kang and her co-authors chose to test out a theory: that making health decisions might take less effort for those with higher sense of purpose in life. According to Kang, health decisions, even those as simple and mundane as choosing between the elevator and the stairs, involve some amount of decisional conflict. But what if some people experience less conflict than others when considering these options, perhaps because they have a stronger guiding purpose that helps resolve the conflicts?
Being wise is good for your health—review looks at emerging science of wisdom Can science measure what it means to be wise? A growing body of evidence suggests that wisdom is a complex concept that contributes to mental health and happiness, according to a review in the May/June issue of Harvard Review of Psychiatry. Different aspects of wisdom may be traced to specific areas of the brain, and might possibly be enhanced by behavioral interventions, suggests the article by Dilip V. Jeste, MD, and Ellen E. Lee, MD, of the Sam and Rose Stein Institute for Research on Aging, University of California San Diego. They write, “Wisdom has important implications at both individual and societal levels, and warrants further research as a major contributor to human thriving.” What is wisdom? While it has been discussed in religion and philosophy for centuries, scientific research on wisdom has accelerated in the past few decades. While it may seem impossible to define and measure wisdom, Drs. Jeste and Lee note that research has demonstrated the validity of other psychological constructs such as consciousness, stress, and resilience. Based on an in-depth review from ancient writings to modern times, Drs. Jeste and Lee propose that wisdom can be defined as “a complex human trait with several specific components: social decision making, emotion regulation, prosocial behaviors, self-reflection, acceptance of uncertainty, decisiveness, and spirituality.” Over the years, several approaches to measuring wisdom have been proposed, although each has its limitations.
Questions of The Day!
RSB and Dr. B,
My fiance and I are on a diet. We are actually fasting similar to what Dr. Buttar is doing. But, we are also trying to drink the appropriate amount of water our body needs. I am a 180lb guy (I’m short) and have been trying to drink approximately 100 ounces of filtered water/day from my Berkey. Now to the issue, my mom hears all the stories that to much water is bad for you. And on top of that, I only have one kidney. Is there such a thing as too much water if I only have one kidney?
Thanks, as always, for all you both do for everyone!!!

Hi Robert – I am hoping you will have Dr. Buttar on your program today. I have a friend who is facing breast cancer. Her question is: what kinds of tests does Dr. Buttar perform during his prescribed treatments that show that the treatments are actually effective? My friend has done natural medicine and diet for many years. She is very informed and is considering contacting Dr. Buttar to receive his help with her cancer. She lives in Florida. Thanks.
