• The Renaissance Of Vitamin K

    Posted July 20, 2012: by Bill Sardi

    Vitamin K, that essential but often avoided “blood clotting” vitamin that we consume in green leafy vegetables is generally not included in multivitamins and avoided by the many thousands of patients taking blood thinners.  The “often-avoided” category speaks for the ongoing insanity within modern medicine.

    About 1% of the adult population is affected by atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rhythm (rapid disorganized heartbeats) that affects the top chambers of the heart.  Atrial fibrillation increases the risk for a stroke by five-fold and accounts for about 15% of 700,000 strokes in the U.S. annually.

  • Test May Predict Heart Attack, But What To Do Next? Red Wine Molecules To The Rescue

    Posted March 23, 2012: by Bill Sardi

    Worldwide headlines herald a test that may make it possible for cardiologists to predict an impending heart attack.  The test may be particularly beneficial for people who have silent (non-painful) heart attacks or heart attacks that cannot be detected by conventional methods.

    Compared to healthy adults, four times as many loose cells that slough off the inner lining of arteries, called endothelial cells, were found among heart attack patients who arrived at a hospital emergency room complaining of chest pain.  A quicker and more efficient test is now being developed to count circulating endothelial cells in a blood sample.

  • FDA’s Caveat For Dietary Supplements, “This Product Is Not Intended To Treat, Cure Or Prevent Any Disease,” Is Costing Americans Their Lives And Their Eyesight

    Posted March 8, 2012: by Bill Sardi

    (March 8, 2012)- Millions of Americans are paying with their lives and their eyesight for the US Food & Drug Administration’s denial that nutriceuticals prevent, treat or cure disease says Bill Sardi, dietary supplement industry executive and health writer, speaking at the annual Nutracon meeting in Anaheim, CA this week.

    “Nutriceuticals, a more sophisticated name for dietary supplements, do in fact prevent, treat and cure essential nutrient deficiency diseases such as vitamin D for rickets, vitamin C for scurvy, vitamin B1 for beri beri, as well as many chronic diseases, yet the FDA bans (censors) statements of fact, keeping the public in the dark over the obvious health benefits and cost effectiveness of nutriceuticals,” says Sardi.

    “The US FDA maintains a narrow pharmaceutical model for chronic diseases, which are basically treated as drug deficiencies. The FDA maintains dietary supplements must become expensive drugs before statements can be made they cure or treat disease, which is absurd,” says Sardi.

  • The Man Who Shouldn’t Be Alive

    Posted February 6, 2010: by Bill Sardi

    Louis Campos of Ventura, California, approaching his 64th birthday this month, is a man who frankly should not be alive.

    For a man who has experienced four separate heart attacks over a period of 7 years, and came within minutes of dying due to severe dehydration from acute diabetes, which required emergent infusion of 13 liters of intravenous fluid, and had a pancreas that ceased to function resulting in his total dependence upon insulin, as well as the development of small hemorrhages in the back of his eyes, Lou is a walking miracle.

    Today Louis takes no medications — no insulin or blood pressure pills, not even a baby aspirin. His most recent electrocardiogram shows no evidence of prior heart attacks, and even two recommended knee operations were cancelled.  There has been low loss of vision.

  • The Man Who Cured Heart Disease With a Natural Molecule, 20 Years Before Cholesterol Drugs!

    Posted January 28, 2010: by Bill Sardi

    His name: Dr. Lester Morrison.

    His qualifications: Director and Research Professor, Institute for Arteriosclerosis Research, Loma Linda University, School of Medicine

    Author: Coronary Heart Disease and the Mucopolysaccharides (1974, Charles C. Thomas)

    In 1982 Dr. Morrison wrote: “I am Lester Morrison MD, and I have been a doctor for over 50 years. Much of that time has been devoted to finding a way to stop heart disease, which killed my mother, my father and several other members of my family and remains the number one killer in the U.S. and other developed countries.”

    Dr. Morrison provided compelling evidence in the 1960s that heart and blood vessel disease could be reversed and prevented with natural molecules, particularly chondroitin sulfate. This was over 20 years prior to the advent of the first cholesterol-reducing statin drug, Mevacor (1987).

  • How to Know You Won’t Have a Sudden-Death Heart Attack Over the Next Ten Years

    Posted October 17, 2009: by Bill Sardi

    If you want assurance that you aren’t going to experience a sudden-death heart attack over the next few years, look not to your cholesterol numbers, but rather your calcium arterial score.

    According to the latest study (see chart below), the chances of experiencinga mortal heart attack or stroke over the next 4 years is nearzero if the measure of calcium deposits in your coronary arteriesis zero. On the other hand, if your calcium coronary artery scoreis 1000 or more, you only have ~15% chance of surviving over thenext 4 years. If your calcium artery score is greater than 1000,your risk of dying from a sudden-death heart attack or mortalstroke is ~28 times higher than a people with no calcificationsin their coronary arteries.
