• Study Reveals The Plight Of Modern Civilizations Plagued By Vitamin C Deficiency

    Posted August 16, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Due to a long-ignored gene mutation, public health authorities worldwide continue to game modern society, leaving 7+ billion humans in a chronic state of vitamin C deficiency that produces mentally dull, lethargic, overweight populations that are chronically ill with a false reliance upon doctoring and drugs to remedy the problem.

    A recently published study reveals the consequences experience by human societies that solely rely on their diet to make up for a gene mutation that affected humanity generations ago.

    Human populations can consume all the fruits and vegetables they can get their hands on.  They will still fall short of obtaining adequate amounts of vitamin C, as a recent study reveals. [Nutrients Aug 3, 2017]

  • 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.

  • Making Up For A Genetic Flaw In Humans With Vitamin C

    Posted July 25, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Over a decade ago I wrote an article at LewRockwell.com entitled .

    I explained the biological predicament of humans, that a gene mutation occurring long ago in human history shortened the human lifespan.  Gulonolactone oxidase is among four liver enzymes most animals utilize to internally convert sugar to ascorbate (vitamin C).  A mutation in the GULO gene for this enzyme also occurs in fruit bats, guinea pigs and primate monkeys and has forced these species along with humans to totally rely upon dietary sources of vitamin C to maintain health.

  • Statin Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs A Giant Hoax; Add Just Four Days To Your Life

    Posted July 17, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    What we now observe is a blistering condemnation of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs coming out of news sources in Great Britain with absolute silence on the subject from US-based news agencies.

    The scathing denunciation of statin drugs emanates from The Pharmaceutical Journal in the UK that declares the cholesterol hypothesis of cardiovascular disease is “dead.”

    The prevalent mantra that statins are “life-savers” and that “people will die” if they discontinue statins, as well as advice “everyone over 50 should be on a statin drug,” is based upon “cherry-picking” of the data say investigators.  A review of 44 published trials of statin drugs finds among subjects taking statins to prevent a heart attacks, these pills only add 4 days to one’s life!

  • PERFECT VISUAL ACUITY AND GOING BLIND

    Posted June 19, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    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.

  • Fixing One Problematic Drug With Another: Aspirin Kills And Disables Seniors And Modern Medicine Proposes Another Deadly Drug To Prevent Its Fatal Side Effects

    Posted June 17, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Aspirin kills.  That is the news headline blasted around the world this week.  [Daily Mail June 14, 2017]  This fact was already known but it appears disease classification errors were hiding 38% of the aspirin-induced brain hemorrhages and gastric bleeding episodes from reviewers (were they intentionally covering this up?).  For senior adults over age 75 the risk of an aspirin-related death or disabling bleeding event is as likely as the stroke prevention it promises!

    Super-seniors are at the greatest risk.  The risk for major bleeding or fatal events associated with aspirin use was 0.5 percent in under-65s, rising to 1.5 percent for those aged 75-84 and nearly 4.1 percent for over-85s. [The Lancet June 13, 2017]

  • 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]

  • Despite Positive Antibody Response, Vaccination Fails To Prevent The Flu

    Posted June 8, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Immunologists and public health authorities are going to have to re-think the idea of mass flu vaccination in a growing population of obese Americans.  A striking study shows flu vaccination did increase antibody titers (concentration) among healthy and obese individuals, but that failed to protect obese individuals from the flu.  In fact, obese vaccinated individuals were twice as likely to get the flu compared to healthy vaccinated individuals.  Given over 100 million Americans elect to get a flu shot annually and a third of the adult population is obese, vaccination programs appear to be counterproductive. [Daily Mail June 7, 2017]

    Immunologists identified an impaired T-cell response as the cause of the problem.  The study was published in the International Journal of Obesity.

  • Modern Medicine Has Done It Again

    Posted May 31, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Modern medicine has done it again.  Long-term use of drugs called bisphosphanates designed to prevent bone loss with advancing age have now been associated with higher risk of any clinical fracture. Researchers say: “These results add to concerns about the benefit of very long-term bisphosphonate use.”  [Journal American Geriatrics Society May 29, 2017]

    Historically a bisphosphonate (Fosamax) caused its manufacturer to pay $27.7 million in a settlement over bone deterioration in the jaw among 1200 people in 2013. [Reuters Dec 9, 2013]

  • Fiber Hailed As Remedy For Wear-And-Tear Arthritis (But Is All As It Seems?)

    Posted May 27, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    A recently published study hails high fiber diets as a preventive for wear-and-tear arthritis (osteoarthritis) of the knee.  [New York Times, May 24, 2017; Annals Rheumatic Diseases May 23, 2017] Another recently published study corroborates the association between high fiber diets and reduction in knee pain. [Arthritis Care Research Nov 2016] But is all as it seems?

    Not all sources of fiber are the same.  Within whole grains (rice, wheat, oats) is bran that contains an iron-binding molecule called phytate or IP6 (inositol hexaphosphate).  It is this molecule that controls the iron-induced inflammation in joints.  Patients with arthritis of the knee are more likely to have high iron storage levels (as measured by ferritin; 20-70 is normal range).  In one study patients with arthritis knees had a mean ferritin level of 273-655.
