How about these numbers?
In fact, the nation’s financial numbers are a fabrication.

Comment: The newly released report (click link to review), published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), concedes that statin drugs have now been relegated as secondary intervention in the prevention of heart disease. What now serves as primary prevention in its place, according to the JAMA report, are control of “lifestyle factors” such as smoking cessation, dietary measures, and limitation of alcohol intake).
This is a nice way of saying the major direction of western medicine in the last forty years has been flawed, even corrupt. Unfortunately, the only penalty for being wrong has been experienced by those who took statin drugs in good faith, paid the price with their lives, believing their well-trained physicians were guiding them in the right direction. That wasn’t true, and cardiologists knew this for a long time prior to the published report below.

In the British newspaper The Telegraph, a writer there promotes legislation that is alleged to permit innovation in the war against cancer without penalizing physicians for stepping outside established norms. Twill bet you the proposed law is simply bait for passage of a law that ensures no threat will come to the reigning cancer industry.
Yet, in the words that were penned in The Telegraph, it was also admitted that existing law “obliges the doctor to follow the status quo, even though he/she knows it leads only to poor life-quality followed by death.” The report goes on to say “the current law requires the deceased receive only the ‘standard procedure’ – the endless repetition of a failed experiment.”

Oh mama, the Affordable Care Act is unfolding in all its ugly glory.
Americans are just now learning exactly how this piece of healthcare legislation is going to play out, and the realization of what it has morphed into is quite a disgusting chapter in current American history.
Now before I proceed in telling you what Obamacare has morphed into, I want to go off on a tangent for a moment.

The revelation is large – and shocking. Senior Americans that take commonly-prescribed drugs such as sleeping pills, antihistamines, blood thinners, diuretics, and many other medications, are blocking a nervous system transmitter (acetycholine, pronounced a-seat-a-coal-een)) that causes over 2 million cases of senile dementia in the US, not Alzheimer’s disease as most people mistakenly believe. (There are an estimated 5 million Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, half that may be re-classified now as “victims of drug-induced delirium.”)
A university-based center has now been established to help physicians identify the problem and substitute other less problematic drugs.
A list of the suspect drugs that induce dementia can be found at the Aging Brain Care website.

What a day to launch a health radio show! I’m positioning the show to be skeptical (not cynical) of modern medicine’s many self-acclaimed successes and I don’t need to make up any sensationalist headlines to make my point. Lo and behold, a number of damning reports are published on the very same day the Bill Sardi Health & Wealth Show is launched on KLAV 1230 AM (Las Vegas)!

Your doctor shows he/she cares for you by conducting preventive exams. Few patients would argue with that measure of a doctor. But what if the preventive measure is needless? What if the “care” is a test that leads to treatment that harms?
The problem in today’s world where insurance pays and the patient doesn’t is that no one, doctor or patient, cares. A billing code exists for tests such as PSA for prostate cancer among males and pap smears to detect early cervical cancer in females. But various health groups now say both tests are of near-worthless value. But the billing code still persists and reimbursement submissions continue. Who will ever put a stop to this?

It is predictable that some know-it-all physician would warn the public away from my health articles, and suggest people should not take dietary supplements without a blood test-confirmed nutrient deficiency. Why must I educate physicians? Everyone knows they are dumbbells when it comes to dietary supplements.
This MD demands I provide him with references that would require hours of work. I’ll send him a copy of my book THE NEW TRUTH ABOUT VITAMINS & MINERALS.
But let’s briefly take a look at some science to answer an important question. Do we really need a blood test before we supplement our diet with vitamins and minerals?

Don’t worry about Obamacare, it is going to implode. Be concerned about the money grab it makes while pretending to expand health care to the uninsured. Even in its own plan Obamacare does not come close to saving Medicare from insolvency in its first year. There is no way it can provide health care for 50 million more Americans and put any meaningful dent in rising health insurance costs.
Obamacare is a fascist takeover of the healthcare industry, working under the guise of improved efficiency (computerized medical records), in order to snoop in medical records and find what drugs doctors are prescribing and then selling that information (aka accepting political donations) to provide that information to pharmaceutical companies.

A report published at the New York Times Online Magazine op-ed pages is startling because it says more than its words. It says American medicine hid from view the ineffectiveness of mammography and still does today, with impunity.
There is no medical board to de-license doctors who remove women’s breasts without just cause. Physicians prey upon women’s fears and disfigure them. Worse, there is only public outcry that any less mammography would represent rationing of care. So over 1 million American women undergo needless screening (mammograms) and subsequent invasive care.
When healthcare costs are a front-page issue, 1 million over-diagnosed and over-treated American women @$20,000-50,000 per head would = $20-$50 billion of needless care. Mammography costs $5 billion alone. That is no small stack of money.
