    The attention grabber is a “scientific” study that shows people with a diagnosis of cancer have a statistically slower rate of memory loss than individuals not diagnosed with cancer.  The difference is not meaningful clinically, meaning you couldn’t tell the difference in mental performance between one patient and another, but maybe over time the trajectory of mental decline is curbed in some meaningful way. Well maybe not. Examine the chart below. The observation period was 10 years.

    IDIOPATHIC DISEASE: When The Doctor Says The Cause Of The Symptoms You Experience Is Unknown
    (or maybe it’s just all in your head)

    Idiopathic: any disease or condition which arises spontaneously or for which the cause is unknown.

    Derrick Lonsdale MD ought to know something about patients for whom other doctors could not find a cause or reason for their chronic symptoms other than psychosomatic phenomena.  He has been helping patients resolve what are called idiopathic (unexplained) disorders for decades now.  His standby remedy, vitamin B1 (thiamine).

  • The Perils Of Modern Medicine

    Posted May 26, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    Cured yesterday of my disease, I died last nite of my physician.
    –Matthew Prior, 1664-1721 AD Columbia Book of Quotations 1996

    A terrorist could not kill more people than American medicine has.  We think of a fanatic pouring some deadly toxin in our water supply or wiping out millions of lives with some superbug.  But these assassins come in white coats and are paid by insurance companies.  Needless care is one thing, but death by doctoring is another.  Once prescription medicine becomes an income stream its purveyors will overlook death to sustain their income stream.  In the U.S., even if there is no effective treatment, doctors will find some way to bill insurance.

  • In A Free Market Economy, The Best Remedy For What Ails Modern Medicine Is Competition, If It Would Ever Be Allowed

    Posted March 26, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    In a free market economy, is there freedom for alternative practitioners to recommend vitamins for young autistic children?

    In the United Kingdom it is apparent alternative practitioners such as homeopathic physicians don’t compete on equal ground with allopathic doctors.  Entrenched allopathic (conventional) medicine has the advantage in that it claims to have the high scientific ground, controls payment systems and is singularly favored by the news media.  In fact, homeopaths are characterized as an example of health quackery in the UK.

    I too have questioned the validity of homeopathic medicines which are implausible dilutions of therapeutic molecules, sometimes toxic metals, that only provide femtograms per milliliter (femtogram = 0.000,000,000,000,001 grams) of their principal active ingredient.  However, in an earlier published report I noted that surprisingly these diluted homeopathic remedies were actually shown to evoke a biological response (alter genes).

    Make Sure Your Kids Get Measles!

    Fascism: Authoritarian rule characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society; when industry controls government to do their bidding.

    Yes, you read that sub-title correctly — make sure your children get measles says Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, a vaccine expert.  What?  You must be thinking those who lead the anti-vaccine movement are really out of their minds now.  But wackos they aren’t.

  • The Biggest Healthcare Mistakes & Misdirections

    Posted January 22, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    What is the biggest healthcare mistake?    Taking calcium pills to ward off bone loss (osteoporosis) among females.

    A shortage of estrogen induces loss of bone, not a shortage of calcium; estrogen replacement or molecules that mimic estrogen (resveratrol) are appropriate.

    What is the biggest health misdirection?  Phobia over fat and cholesterol

  • The Delayed Disease Bomb

    Posted November 7, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    A biological reality is that many Americans may have been genetically pre-programmed to develop diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, become obese, even suffer with mental depression and other mental problems, based upon circumstances in their mother’s womb and very early childhood.  That is when the human library of ~25,000 genes that resides in the nucleus of every living cell in the body develops what are called epigenetic tags or marks.

    Genetics is the arrangement of steps (nucleotides) on the DNA ladder that is fixed whereas epigenetics involves the dynamic protein-making aspect of genes (called gene expression or gene silencing) that helps humans adapt to their immediate environment.

    In the archives of medicine is found record of the first sign of scurvy – a severe form of vitamin C deficiency. In an era between 1500-1800 AD sailors on board long sailing ships came down with purple blotches underneath their skin, what was called “purpura nautica” at the time.

  • How The Scientific Establishment Takes On Criticism

    Posted August 16, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    On April 22, 2017 I posted a pointed article at Knowledgeofhealth.com that branded negative news reports about dietary supplements as “fake news.”  Among other targets of my criticism was the American Council on Science & Health (ACSH).  A spokesperson for ACSH said the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act of 1994 swept away “all regulations that vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements prove they are safe and effective prior to marketing.”  It took the ACSH 16 months to catch up to my rebuttal to news reports that were in circulation last year unfairly damning vitamin pills.

    On August 14, 2018 a spokesperson for the ACSH belatedly fired back, ridiculing this health journalist and resorting to ad hominem attacks, calling me a “conspiracy-loving screwball.”  He also published a photo that might confuse readers it is a personal photo of Bill Sardi that was originally posted at the website of a recording engineer who said the photo characterized an impersonator on Twitter (not Bill Sardi).  This is bizarre.

  • Is There An Alternative To The Over-Drugging Of American School Children?

    Posted August 9, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    The symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are well known.

    Symptoms of ADHD

    Behavioral: aggression, excitability, fidgeting, hyperactivity, impulsivity, irritability, lack of restraint, or persistent repetition of words or actions

    Cognitive: absent-mindedness, difficulty focusing, forgetfulness, problem paying attention, or short attention span

    Mood: anger, anxiety, boredom, excitement, or mood swings

    The fidgeting, forgetfulness and lack of attention have certainly been evident in my own son along with symptoms of dyslexia.
