• Hospitals Are Making A Killing On Poorly Nourished Patients As Insolvency Of Medicare Part A Looms

    Posted July 8, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    It is intuitive that nutritional status at hospital admission predicts the outcome of treatment and length of stay.  Yet too many older patients are over-drugged and undernourished on the day of their admission to the hospital and not only experience more complications and hospital-acquired infections, but by conservative estimation spend an extra costly day or two in the hospital.

    If nutritional assessment and corrective therapy were to be instituted upon hospital admission and reduced hospital length of stay by just 1 day, it is estimated in this report that practice would save $73 billion to Medicare Part A.  That represents 24.5% of the $293 billion of Medicare funds spent on hospitalization (Part A).

  • Why Is Modern Medicine Aiming To Reduce Risk For Alzheimer’s Disease With Expensive Gene Editing Technology When Fish Oil, Antioxidants & Metal Chelation Are More Effective & Economical?

    Posted July 2, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    In 1993, in what was called “the most important finding that’s ever been made in the study of Alzheimer’s disease,” investigators reported a variation of the APOE gene, a protein that transports cholesterol throughout the human body, drastically increases risk for this memory-robbing brain disease.  The APOE gene provides instructions for making a protein called apolipoprotein E.  APOE regulates the clearance of beta amyloid brain plaque, which is a common hallmark of age-related brain disease.  Carriers of the APOE e4 gene in their brain cells are at such an increased risk for memory loss that it is called “the forgetting gene.” Carry two copies of this gene and the risk is worrisome.  Look at the risk chart below:

  • GcMAF UPDATE: With A Tried & True Cancer Cure That Activates Cancer-Killing Macrophages Having Been Removed From The Market, Are There Any Natural Alternatives?

    Posted June 4, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    We live in an era of cancer immunotherapy. Oncologists once vehemently denied cancer could ever be overcome by the human immune system. A report in the British Medical Journal dated May 24, 1969 stated: “immunotherapy in patients with advanced disease is doomed to disappointment.”i

    Over 50 years ago, even in the face of Dr. Chester Southam injecting millions of cancer cells into elderly patients (without their consent) to prove the human immune system is capable of resisting cancer when intentionally induced, Dr. Southam was unfairly demonized on ethical grounds and cancer immunotherapy was roundly denounced.ii Yet today immunotherapy is the most promising weapon in the fight against cancer.iii

  • Low-Back Pain Due To Disc Degeneration Remedied With Two-Year Glucosamine-Chondroitin Sulfate Supplementation

    Posted May 25, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    Bulging discs in the lower spine present a common form of back pain that is not easily resolved with surgery. For the first time supplementation with chondroitin and glucosamine is reported to resolve low-back pain, with relief of symptoms starting after 6 months and evidence by MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) serving as visual proof.

  • It’s Time To Substitute Methyl Folate Instead Of Folic Acid In Multivitamins.

    Posted May 20, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    Main points

    • Folic acid (vitamin B9) is now being supplied in fortified food and supplements, in sufficient doses to overwhelm the slow gut and liver metabolism of this B vitamin to produce un-metabolized folic acid.
    • Un-metabolized folic acid can also result from a gene mutation that affects 30-50% of humanity.
    • Un-metabolized folic acid has been linked with number of health problems, the most prominent being an undesirable rise in homocysteine levels. Un-metabolized folic acid is linked with mental disorders, miscarriages, strokes, migraine headaches, even a compromised immune system.
    • Folic acid food fortification to prevent birth defects among offspring of fertile women may result in disease substitution rather than disease prevention.
    • Methyl folate is the predominant form of vitamin B9 in the blood circulation and dietary supplements that provide methyl folate instead of folic acid would be less problematic and more appropriate for use by the masses.
    • The stakes are high. While researchers sort out all the data, based upon the best available science, it is best for multivitamins to substitute methyl folate in place of folic acid.

  • Just Remember Dietary Supplements Are Not Supported By Science And Are A Waste of Money

    Posted May 10, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    In the 1990s grain products were fortified with folic acid to prevent birth defects (spina bifida, anencephaly) and a decline in stroke-related mortality was reported. Researchers then subsequently reported that 31,000 stroke-associated deaths may have been prevented by folic acid food fortification. Folic acid blood levels doubled during this period (from 6.6 to 15 nanograms/milliliter per blood sample) with an accompanying 14% decline in homocysteine blood levels, which was believed to be the mechanism responsible for the decline.

  • The Body’s Crying Demand For Zinc
With Advancing Age

    & Why You Will Not Likely Ever Get Enough Zinc Out Of Your Multivitamin

    There has never been such an increased demand for a single nutrient a there is for the trace mineral zinc with advancing age.  That is because more and more Americans are living longer but also in states of chronic inflammation and disease associated with poor zinc nutriture.

  • The Baking Soda Cure For Almost Everything

    Posted April 26, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    The three trillion-dollar income stream produced by the medical industrial complex is about to come demolished by a home remedy – baking soda. Buy stock in Arm & Hammer. (Church & Dwight Co. Ltd.)

    Now for the details:

    Researchers at the Medical College of Georgia have discovered a nerve center in a cell layer in the spleen that controls the immune response and therefore inflammation throughout the body. Given that virtually all chronic age-related disease involves inflammation (called inflammaging), this discovery is of monumental significance and has widespread application for virtually every organ and tissue in the body as the spleen is not only an abdominal organ that is involved in the recycling of old blood cells but is also a key part of the human immune system.

  • CDC Kept Flu Vaccine In Play When It Knew It Contained Mutated Strain Of The Flu

    Posted April 21, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    The body of a missing Centers for Disease Control researcher has been found. Timothy Cunningham, 25, was last seen on February 12. Cunningham headed up a research team with the Center For Disease Control’s Division of Population Health. Cunningham had made claims, shortly before his disappearance, that a “catastrophic” flu shot was the cause of this year’s deadly flu epidemic that reportedly killed thousands.

    Cunningham reportedly mentioned: “if something happened to him” that he wished his name to be made public. Cunningham was a Harvard-trained epidemiologist and US Navy officer. His body was recovered in the Chattahoochee River in NW Atlanta on April 3, over fifty days since he was reported missing.

  • Moonshot Medicine: Who Can Afford It?

    Posted April 20, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    The medical research community now talks of moonshots (big leap-forward cures), regenerative medicine, precision individualized medicine, even one-time complete treatment cures.  It is all part of the 21st Century Cures Act, which spreads $4.8 billion of research funding in an attempt to accelerate the development and approval of real cures.  But will this Herculean effort bankrupt insurance pools?

    The money is being directed toward expensive pharmacological cures that will further burst the Medicare Trust fund.  Gobs of federal money are going towards innovations, like CRISPR gene therapy, that intends to completely remedy single-gene mutation diseases like cystic fibrosis, sickle cell, Huntington’s disease, and muscular dystrophy, all cured in a single treatment.  But at what cost?
