• Do We Have A Cure For Alzheimer’s Disease?

    Posted September 22, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    No, the substance of this report doesn’t emanate from Harvard Medical School and is being ignored and will predictably be dismissed by uninformed physicians whose livelihood is threatened by such a discovery.

    Denial and ridicule is the first phase of any scientific discovery, followed strong opposition and finally self-evident acceptance.  This discovery hasn’t even reached the first stage as it goes ignored.

    The acronym for the National Institutes of Health — NIH – more accurately means: “not invented here.”  The covert mission of the NIH is to block any remedy outside of synthetic molecules from gaining FDA approval.

  • WHAT’S A CANCER PATIENT TO DO AFTER SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT?

    Posted September 15, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    I can hear the jabber in the doctors’ lounge at the hospital where a 67-year old cancer patient in remission from prostate cancer underwent an explorative procedure to check for recurrence.

    “What was the man thinking?  How could he mindlessly subject himself to these ridiculous alternative therapies,” the doctors must have been asking themselves.

    The patient, 67 years of age had been cutting up 70 apricot kernels for 5 years the news report says, and also consumed commercially made herbal fruit kernel tablets, in an attempt to keep his prostate cancer at bay.

  • Mind Bending Drugs For Psycho Diets

    Posted September 10, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    There is such a thing as a mental depression diet.  It’s called the American diet.  In response, physicians hand out anti-depressant pills making patients dependent on these pills for the remainder of their lives when their calorie-rich/nutrient poor diet is causing their problems.  Where does depression/anxiety emanate from? Not the brain but the intestines, what is now called the gut-brain axis.  In a misdirection, mood-altering drugs directly target neurotransmitters in the brain.

    Altered gut bacteria early in life, particularly from over-use of antibiotics that literally sterilize the gut, and modern sugar-laden carbohydrate-rich diets by virtue of their generation of low-grade chronic inflammation, increase the risk for a depressed mood and eventually losing one’s mind later in life.

  • AUTHORS OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENT SURVEY FAIL TO NOTE MASSIVE OVERSIGHTS IN THEIR ANALYSIS

    Posted September 1, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    The most recent survey of dietary supplement use in the U.S. has just been published and it’s a shocker.

    Almost a third (29%) of surveyed individuals that take dietary supplements use 4 or more of them on a regular basis.

    While a considerable portion of postmenopausal women take calcium supplements about half as many take a mineral balancing magnesium supplement while a far greater number take vitamin D pills that help prevent calcifications that can possibly be induced by supplemental calcium.

    Enslaved By Vocation Or Addicted By Choice To Hours In Front Of A Computer Monitor? You Had Better Down A Lutein Pill Every Day

    A recently published report cites the fact that ~35% of people born 1965-1996 and now living in developed countries spend at least 9 hours a day in front of digital devices. Such intense use of digital devices has been found to have undesirable effects on sleep quality, alertness during waking hours and also fatigue, headaches, muscular, skeletal and visual strain.

  • Garlic abolishes risk for intravenous catheter infections in the intensive care unit

    Posted August 17, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Hospital acquired (nosocomial) infections are common, particularly in the intensive care unit. Researchers gave a 400-milligram garlic pill to 47 patients and a placebo pill to 47 patients admitted to the ICU. Venous catheters were cultured to determine infection at the venous entry site and urine samples were taken. Here are the results of that study.

    Garlic Placebo
    Number of subjects 47 47
    Infected venous catheter tip culture result 0 5
    Infected urine culture 2 (5.7%) 6 ((12.3%)

  • Every Individual With Macular Degeneration Should Supplement Their Diet With Omega-3 Fish Oil To Avoid The Advanced Stage Of The Disease

    Posted August 6, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Researchers are making a link between advanced stage macular degeneration and a hormone secreted from central body fat.  The ramifications of this discovery are profound and are likely to save the sight of millions of senior adults.

    First some background information.  When light receptor (photoreceptor) cells at the back of the eyes are deprived of oxygen, new blood vessels outcrop to counter this problem but invade the bloodless visual center of the eye (the macula).  The outcropping of these new blood vessels is called neovascularization or angiogenesis.

    Eye doctors call this wet macular degeneration, which is the fast progressing neovascular form of the disease that can permanently destroy vision, leaving a subject legally blind.

  • PERFECT VISUAL ACUITY AND GOING BLIND

    Catastrophic Level Of Visual Decline Looms As Commonly Used Vision Test Chart Fails To Detect Progressive Visual Deterioration

    Eye researchers have just now discovered that the commonly used vision testing chart does not adequately detect deterioration of the visual system in the early stages of eye disease while a more sensitive test that measures the ability of the eyes to adapt to the dark now points to a looming epidemic of preventable legal blindness.

    An age-related eye disorder called macular degeneration is responsible for a majority of the cases of legal blindness in the American population. About 30% of senior Americans show early signs of the disease (cholesterol-like deposits at the back of the eyes called drusen).  But a far smaller number, ~9%, have actually lost visual acuity to this eye malady.  These figures are anticipated to rise dramatically as more and more Americans are living into their tenth decade of life.

  • Researchers Starve Cancer Stem Cells Out Of Existence Using A Simple One-Two Punch; Could Be Up To 100 Times Better Than Drugs At Killing Cancer Stem Cells

    Posted June 11, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Doctors Knock Out Cancer Stem Cells With A Common Antibiotic and Finish Off Treatment-Resistant Stem Cells With Vitamin C

    A common problem with modern cancer treatment is that even if 100% of cancer cells are eradicated at tumor sites and in the blood circulation, a small cadre of cancer stem cells may give rise to recurrence months to years later.  Oncologists are never quite sure they have cured this dreaded disease.  Failure to kill cancer stem cells is likened to killing all the weeds in a garden but never pulling out their roots.  [Ludwig Center, Stanford Medicine]

  • NEGATIVE NEWS REPORTS ABOUT DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS ARE “FAKE NEWS”

    Posted April 22, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Despite the fact 71% of Americans take dietary supplements and 85% express overall confidence in their safety [Council for Responsible Nutrition at CRN.org], one would get the mistaken impression from news reports that the public is mindless and gullible to every sales pitch made by supplement makers.

    There is no question major news sources create news to fit political, environmental, cultural or religious agendas.  Americans’ trust and confidence in mass media “to report the news fully, accurately and fairly” has dropped to an all-time low says The Gallup Poll.  Only 32% of Americans polled say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the news media.  [Gallup.com]
