Interesting Medical “Facts”

Learn Medical Business in few steps:

Good morning friends! Today I welcome you and you are going to learn about the medicine, and we are going to start with Hypertension or high Blood Pressure. High Blood Pressure is very common these days and we are going to talk about the medicines- there are several medicines, but we are going to talk about one medicine- Diuretics- which is considered very “safe”. The discomfort is very less and as soon as this medicine is given, the Blood Pressure becomes normal at once. There are a “few” side effects of Diuretics- a patient may have erectile dysfunction, impotency, abnormal rhythms, palpitations, nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, joint pain, lethargy, tiredness, weakness but there is no need to worry. If a patient complains of impotency, Viagra can be given but even after taking Viagra there are a “few” side effects- like weakness, headache, dizziness, running nose, indigestion etc.

If a patient complains of headache after taking Viagra, he can be given Paracetamol. Even Paracetamol may lead to constipation or allergy, for which some other medicine can be provided. The doctors have a solution for every problem in the form of medicine. For instance, for indigestion, Zantac can be recommended and even after Zantac, a patient may complain of insomnia, diarrhoea, nausea, or constipation, but again some medicine can be recommended. In the same way, for a person suffering from abnormal rhythm, pronestyl can be given which may result in diarrhea or loss of appetite. If he comes with the complaint of loss of appetite, he can be given Imodium. With Imodium, along with constipation and dizziness, patient may have abdominal pain, vomiting and nausea. So, in this way, the list of medicines keeps increasing and at the end of the day, the patient himself forgets for which problem did he consult a doctor? He just remembers the medicines to be taken in the morning, afternoon, night, and mid night. He thus starts taking medicines as food- day and night and feels that he is protected because of these medicines. This is enough for you to understand that you yourself have invited the problem.

Truth of Diagnosis:

Do you feel energetic? If yes, then the reading can be anything. But if you do not feel well or energetic, it is a cause of concern.

Let us take an example. Norwegian people live for longer time. They live for 80 years and the average BP of a Norwegian is 150/90 mm Hg. If a doctor from India goes to Norway, they would say that medication should be given to all Norwegians because their Blood Pressures are high, they are going to get brain stroke soon. Their Blood Pressures should be reduced to 120/80 mm Hg.

According to the Journal of American Medical Association 2013, implementation of the present European guidelines of Blood Pressure 140/90 mm Hg would label 76% of Norwegian adults as having high Blood Pressure and suitable for drug treatment, though the fact is that Norwegians are the longest living people in the world. How does it matter, what the number is? The instrument shows 150 but you live for 100 years, it shows 120, but you fall sick at 25-30 years of age. So number is not important. If there is some problem, your body will reflect it and then to cross verify, the number becomes important. It is the same as Google map is important, but your mind is more important than that.

As far as the Blood Pressure standards are concerned, they have changed over the years. Today, 120/80 mm Hg is considered normal. Before 1997, the Blood Pressure that was considered normal was 160/100 mm Hg. 1997 onwards 140/90 mm Hg was considered normal. Within the next few months, 115/75 mm Hg would be considered normal.

The day it becomes 115/75 mm Hg, that person will be healthy who would not get his Blood Pressure checked. Whoever will get his Blood Pressure checked will come back sick and return with medicines. So, if you want to remain healthy, first mantra is do not get your Blood Pressure checked.

It is very misleading that whatever is available for free is fine. Knee replacement 1+1 free, angioplasty 1+1 free, health check up free. The word free lures everyone and we are caught in the grip of medicines. You get your Blood Pressure checked up and its 150/90 mm Hg, the doctor would say that you are very sick, I am surprised how you walked to the hospital. You may get heart attack or brain stroke any time. But you feel perfect. The doctor will try to confuse you. So, to bring in transformation, the level of awareness has to be there.

Truth of Statins(Cholesterol lowering drug):

Moving on to the drug discovery part, as to how the cholesterol lowering drug was introduced to the world! The chief cholesterol lowering drug – Statin was invented by the scientist Endo in 1976. Before 1976, the cholesterol lowering drug was available in powder form; therefore, its use was a little inconvenient. In 1977, to further develop the medicine, scientist Endo partnered with two other scientists naming Goldstein and Brown. However, the partnership was soon over and surprisingly in 1980s, the same two scientists, Goldstein and Brown reported that “Statin causes Cancer.” After the release of their research paper on “Statin causes Cancer”, the cholesterol theory faced a set-back throughout the world, Besides, we become the biggest sufferers of being dependent on these medications and drugs for several years. By this, not only our health but the nation as well suffers huge losses! Undoubtedly, these diagnostic guidelines and protocols are extremely disappointing. Alongside, the Medical Industry had their mouths shut on promotions of Statins.

Further on, in the year 1985, Goldstein and Brown were awarded with a Nobel Prize for ‘Statins, a Cholesterol Lowering Drug.’ Baffled! Let me re-phrase. The same two scientists, who reported ‘Statins to cause Cancer’, were awarded with a Nobel Prize for their efforts and achievements in the development of the cholesterol lowering drug- Statin! But, what about the research of 1980s for Statin’s to show cancer causing characteristics, for what reasons the research and evidence

were ignored and left out. Moreover, after 2 years in 1987, Merck Pharmaceuticals along with scientist Brown could get approval from FDA to manufacture Statins as cholesterol lowering drug.

Interestingly, in 2004, the first inventor of Statin, scientist Endo himself was found with a high cholesterol medical condition and surprisingly, he refused to use Statins for his own treatment, this was published in Wall Street Journal 2006. So, the biggest question of all times is that “If the inventor himself denied the use of the drug for his own treatment, then why are you taking it?”

Third leading cause of death in America:

According to Journal of American Medical Association, volume 284 July 2000’s article,’ Death from Iatrogenic causes’; The death figures in U.S Hospitals, every year, are as under:

Deaths           Causes

12,000                   Due to unwanted surgeries

7,000                     Wrong medicines

20,000                   Other discrepancies/follies in hospital

80,000                   Due to contagious diseases in the hospital

1, 06,000                Repercussions/side effects of medicines

Truth of Microwaves:

The Soviet Union introduced a ban on the use of microwave ovens in 1976, due to the risk of cancer that was discovered by Soviet scientists. According to the study published by the Atlantis Rising Educational Center in Portland, Oregon. Carcinogens (toxic radicals) were formed in virtually all foods tested.

Even though a microwave is convenient, there are some health factors that need to be considered. Even though “official” releases have stated that microwave ovens are safe to use, researchers have uncovered evidence which shows many reasons why you should be concerned about having a microwave in your home.

Why You Should Get Rid of Your Microwave:

  • Long-term consumption of food heated or cooked in a microwave can lead to brain damage because it causes electrical impulses in the brain to “short out.”
  • The microwave reduces the nutrients, such as minerals and vitamins that are in the food. So, every time you eat something that came from the microwave, you are missing out on the important nutritional benefits that were available before the food was put into the microwave.
  • When vegetables are microwaved, the minerals are changed into free radicals which can lead to cancerous activity in your body if they are consumed.
  • Eating microwaved food can impact hormone levels in both men and women. These hormonal changes can have a compounding effect over time and might impact many other aspects of health.
  • Microwaving food causes by-products to be present in the food, and the human body is unable to metabolize those by-products.
  • Some researchers have suggested that there is a link between eating microwaved food and the increase in colon cancer rates in the United States. Microwaved food might increase the risk of intestinal and stomach tumors.
  • Eating microwaved food can impact your blood serum levels and lymph glands, which affects your immune system functions. It is possible that microwaved foods can lead to immune system deficiencies.
  • Concentration, intelligence, memory, and emotional stability all might be negatively affected by microwaved food.

Truth of Diabetes Diagnosis:

Truth of Diabetes Diagnosis: Till 1997, it was believed that if your “fasting blood sugar” exceeds 140mg/dl, then you are declared a diabetic but, in 1997, W.H.O formed a committee called ‘Expert Committee on Diagnosis and Classification of Diabetes.’ The committee recommended that the level be reduced to 126mg/dl. That would mean that those who were not diabetic (a declared diabetic), after reading morning news papers, overnight, would become diabetic. In all, 14% people of the world who were not diabetic came within the range of diabetes.

The point to be noted is that W.H.O convened a committee of 17 members, out of which 16 were manufacturers of diabetes medicines. They were dealers, consultants, speakers, and scientists, who were awarded salaries by these companies. The names of the companies are as under :

Aventis Pharmaceuticals, Bristol Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Merck, and Pfizer.

That was about the diabetes. Now what about those falling in the ambit of less than 126mg/dl? Then a new term called ‘Prediabetic was launched.’ So, it is understood that those who were not at all diabetic, now would fall into the category of ‘Prediabetic.’

Still believe that WHO is working for your health or for the health of someone’s wealth?

Important Statement of a Cancer Researcher (Dr. Tim Colin Campbell)

A senior scientist adviser, of “American Institute of Cancer Research”, Dr Colin was once asked, if ever you have cancer or any of your family members become a victim of cancer, what would you do? The reply he gave is follows:

“If I or any of my family members suffer from cancer, I would not adopt any conventional cancer cure but, would use good nutritional fruits along with plants-based diet. Along side do exercise, drink plenty of water and avail of sunrays as a better means of treatment. I shall allow nature to take its course.”

Dr. Colin’s statement conveys that he already knows how chemotherapy was initiated? During Second World War, with the intention to kill more than 60 lakh people, Hitler had used mustard gas. Thereafter, pharmaceutical companies, along with Nazi scientists, American scientists and many intellectuals came to know the adverse effects of mustard gas on human body. The fact that it destroys the white blood corpuscles in our body laid the foundation of today’s chemotherapy empire.

Diagnosis is a cause of CANCER:

WHO report says that 3% of cancer occurs in the world due to diagnostic X-Ray. That goes on to say that getting an X-Ray done is dangerous for you. Possibly, the causes of cancer could be X-Ray. Similarly, mammography or breast cancer screening increases the risk of Breast cancer. According to Harvard Medical School if you get your biopsy done thrice, it increases the risk of cancer by 62%. Cancer does not occur by itself. But use of modern diagnostic machines in the hospital, availability of fast food and packed food, the chemicals inside them are to some extent responsible for cancer. A plot is hatched to let these cancer-causing chemicals enter the body of the patient visiting the hospitals, through these chemicals in packed food. Since the hospitals and doctors stand to gain through this plot and meet their vested interests. This profession has become a money minting business.

Truth of Bypass surgery and Angioplasty

During the operation, the patient’s chest is split open, blood flow is rerouted by a series of clamps, pumps and machines, and a leg vein or chest artery is cut out and sewn over a diseased part of the heart, thereby allowing blood to bypass the most clogged arteries. The costs are enormous. More than one of every fifty elective patients will die because of complications during the $46,000 procedure. Other side effects include heart attack, respiratory complications, bleeding complications, infection, high blood pressure and stroke. When the vessels around the heart are clamped shut during the operation, plaque breaks off the inner walls. Blood then carries this debris to the brain, where it causes numerous “mini” strokes. Researchers have compared the intellectual capabilities of patients before and after the operation and found that a stunning 79% of patients “showed impairment in some aspect of cognitive function” seven days after the operation.

Why do we put ourselves through this? The most pronounced benefit of this procedure is relief of angina, or chest pain. About 70-80% of patients who undergo bypass surgery remain free of this crippling chest pain for one year. But this benefit does not last. Within three years of the operation, up to one-third of patients will suffer from chest pain again. Within ten years half of the bypass patients will have died, had a heart attack, or had their chest pain return. Long-term studies indicate that only certain subsets of heart disease patients live longer because of their bypass operation. Furthermore, these studies demonstrate that those patients who undergo bypass operation do not have fewer heart attacks than those who do not have surgery.

Angioplasty is a similar story. The procedure is expensive and carries significant risks. After identifying blockages in a coronary artery, a balloon is inserted into the artery and inflated. It pushes the plaque back against the vessel, thereby allowing more blood to flow. Roughly one out of sixteen patients will experience an “abrupt vessel closure” during the procedure, which can lead to death, heart attack or an emergency bypass operation. Assuming that does not happen, there is still a good chance that the procedure will fail. Within four months after the procedure,4 0% of the arteries that were “squished” open will close again, effectively nullifying the procedure. Nonetheless, barring these unfavorable outcomes, angioplasty does a good job of providing temporary relief of chest pain. Of course, angioplasty does little to treat the small blockages that are most likely to lead to heart attacks.

Bypass surgery and angioplasty do not address the cause of heart disease, prevent heart attacks or extend the lives of any but the sickest heart disease patients.

Words of Dr. Esselstyn, M.D (Cardiologist):

Cardiologists are “supposed” to be expert in diseases of the heart and yet they have no expertise in treating heart disease, and when that awareness strikes them, they get very defensive. They can treat the symptoms, they can take care of Arrhythmias, they can get you interventions, but they do not know how to treat the disease, which is a nutritional treatment …. Imagine a dietitian training a heart surgeon!

Caldwell Esselstyn is the author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease (2007), in which he argued for a low-fat, whole foods, plant-based diet that avoids all animal products and oils, as well as reducing or avoiding soybeans, nuts and avocados. The diet has been advocated by former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

Words of Dr. John McDougall, M.D :

You should not assume that your doctor has any more knowledge about food and its relation to health than your neighbors and coworkers. It’s a situation in which nutritionally untrained doctors prescribe milk and sugar-based meal-replacement shakes for overweight diabetics, high-meat, high-fat diets for patients who ask how to lose weight and extra milk for patients who have osteoporosis. The health damage that results from doctors’ ignorance of nutrition is astounding.

The problem with doctors starts with our education(medical). The whole system(medical) is paid by the drug industry, from education to research. The drug industry has purchased the minds of the medical profession. It starts the day you enter medical school. All the way through medical school everything is supported by the drug industry.

Truth of Fever:

When the temperature of the body increases, it causes discomfort especially in small children, so straightaway you take him to the doctor. What happens in fever increased temperature viruses cannot multiply; they can multiply at normal temperature; so, the body to protect you, increases the temperature as a result virus gets limited there itself. At such a time body produces such hormones that prevent you from spending your energy because energy is being used by the body in keeping the temperature increased. So, this is discomfort; dis—– ease. But you consider it as an illness and go to the doctor. Doctor gives medicine that bypasses the brain and brings the temperature to normal as a result the virus again becomes active. So, is the doctor your friend or the friend of the virus? Virus knows that the body has a tool high temperature- so virus adapts itself to high temperature and start duplicating even at high temperature. So, body will either increase the temperature or adopt some other mechanism.

It is very dangerous that since you have fever, you are taking the medicine to bring it down. Fever is, in fact, a tool to support the body. It is possible that if the fever increases too much, the cells may start dying which is again dangerous; it is damaging. So, temperature should not go that high (it should be controlled through wet packs and herbal formulas). So, fever, common cold, vomiting- these are all tools of the body to take care of you, though they may cause a little discomfort. It is the mechanism of the body to get rid of impurities. Medicine tries to hide them. Do not fear fever. You are your own doctor. Whatever has to happen will happen. Your life is in the hands of God. If you read medical literature, you will get to know that these medicines for fever have been banned several times; you can very well understand how dangerous those medicines may be. So, avoid taking medicines.
