Things to Avoid

Health Supreme

The Fumes from non-stick frying pans lined with fluorine compounds such as Teflon, can be deadly to birds. We don't seem to understand that warning sign very well, although Canaries have for a long time been used to warn miners of deadly gases in the 'underworld'. Fluoride in frying pans, fluoride in the drinking water, fluoride in toothpase, fluoride in a large selection of pharmaceutical drugs. Would anyone care to explain to me why we are putting ourselves at high risk of poisoning by fluoride? Here is a recent BBC News article on frying pans and canaries. (1/31/2004 4:19:55 PM)

Aspartame is a highly toxic sweetener which unfortunately, through political pressures overriding the warnings of the FDA's own scientists, has obtained approval from the FDA and consequently from health authorities world wide. It is being sold as a low calorie way to get that sweet taste, and is being recommended for diabetics and anyone who would like to avoid sugar. Thousands of products, including sports drinks and the ubiquitous "light" soft drinks as well as all kinds of bakery goods for those who want to avoid sugar, contain the poison. Consequently, we are seeing an epidemic of ill health of truly monstrous proportions.

You think SARS is bad? AIDS? Look at the side effects caused by Aspartame! Ask around your friends and neighburs, if they have any of the symptoms. Chances are they are on Aspartame. Janet Starr Hull, Ph.D. describes the common symptoms and recommends a ten-step Aspartame Detoxification Program: (1/31/2004 3:11:14 PM)

Lipitor, a cholesterol lowering drug made by Pfizer and sold to millions of health conscious but ill informed patients, is one of the most profitable drugs the pharmaceutical industry has ever come up with. Sales account for a quarter of Pfizer's $ 32 billion annual sales. Expected to gross more than $ 10 billion this year, Lipitor is poised to become the largest-selling pharmaceutical in history, surpassing Pfizer's other wonder drug, Viagra.

But the price to society is much higher than a mere 8 to 10 billion dollars. Lipitor and other drugs in the statin class, such as Bayer's version Baycol - removed from the market by its maker - are not only lowering cholesterol. These drugs apparently ruin perfectly good lives with "side effects" that lead to slow degradation into physical disability.

The story of Doug Peterson and other residents of Tahoe City may be coldly dismissed as "anecdotal evidence", but there is no excuse for scientific statistical sofistry. Every tragedy is real - when it happens to you, the risk is 100%.

Let's look at the pharmaceutical profit model for a moment. Drugs are developed and they have to be sold, otherwise - no profit. In the case of Lipitor and its similars, that means a market has to be created.

Cholesterol, a beneficial substance in the human body, is targetted as a bad sign of impending heart disease. Drugs are promoted to "lower cholesterol". Mind you, not to prevent heart disease but to turn off the blinking warning lights. Billions are made, a huge empire of multinational corporations is built to "take care of our health" - by selling us drugs.

National economies are all but bankrupted by the costs of health care, most of it to pay for drugs. What's more, national and personal economies are also bearing the cost - sometimes vastly greater than the mere cost of a prescription - of these drugs' side effects, the cost of drug induced illness and disability.

Who is responsible? The drug barons? The medical researchers? The media which never told us?Or none of them? I like what Karla, Doug's wife, has to say: "We are hoping he is going to get better. That's our number one goal. Anger is a waste of energy at this point. We are trying to recover and get the word out." Also Doug is taking the matter with a good deal of philosophy: "At this point, I consider myself lucky I'm not in a wheelchair," says Doug, who is currently in phsyical therapy. "There are no guarantees in life. Your birth certificate doesn't come with a warranty." In other words: Do it yourself. The responsibility is ours. You can contact Doug by e-mail, if you think you can help get the word out about what is really happening. (1/31/2004 3:08:53 PM)
