The MD Emperor Has No Clothes by Peter GliddenThis would best be described as a polemic against the medical establishment. I actually agree with some of Gliddens arguments - the conventional medical obsession with tests and diagnostics (and the attitude that if it cant be tested, it doesnt exist - I liken this to my husbands attitude of well, I didnt hear a clanging in the hot water heater, so it doesnt exist), the reliance on drugs which are often worse than the diseases they are supposed to treat, the insistence on focusing on parts instead of the whole person, not to mention the lack of nutrition knowledge. I have a whole raft of issues with conventional medicine just from my own experience and the experiences of family and friends. I generally think that doctors are good body mechanics - theyll fix you when you have a broken bone or a blood clot, but arent much good at any other time unless you are prepared to do your own exhaustive research and stand your ground with them til they do what you want.
But Glidden is just as bad - he spends basically 75% of this book demonizing the medical establishment, and his arguments are not well supported. And then to make matters worse, he shills for his friend Joel Wallachs supplement company, which kind of annoys me since he spends so much time indicting doctors for being in the pockets of drug companies. Plus, I basically think that a lot of the treatments he supports, such as traditional Chinese medicine, are just as bad as conventional medicine or worse (not to mention the fact that some Chinese medicine has endangered animal parts in it). I do agree that alternative medicines such as acupuncture and chiropractic should be covered by insurance, but then I come from a country where they are part of mainstream medicine.

Chemotherapy Doesn’t Work, Doctor Blows the Whistle
Party threatens court action if the committee, whose role is to conduct oversight of the intelligence services, is not constituted by Friday. Party has been unable to curb voter exodus since the general elections in May when it failed to grow its support nationally for the first time since its formation. Wine at gallery openings is a given. Richard Holmes did just that. Epigenetics has been gaining momentum in the field of biology as a groundbreaking study of alterations in gene expression, which plays a crucial role in understanding cancer and developing medications to treat it. The genes of organisms are their fundamental landscapes — sequences of DNA coding make up all living organisms.

You'll Never Guess The Biggest Cause of Inflammation Causing Free Radicals
Thank you for opening my eyes to these questions.. I am going through breast cancer and am being "pushed" to accept chemo even though I have made it clear that the answer is No. My dad had a rare cancer that they recommended radiation for. His body responded to the treatment and the tumor dissipated. By that time, we didn't know it spread to the lungs so a month later, his lungs collapsed and he was re admitted to the hospital. They then said they need to do chemo.
