You may live for the weekend but if you’re planning a surgery, whether it’s a simple tonsillectomy or a risky heart valve replacement, do yourself the favor of a lifetime:

Pick ANY other day.

A frightening new study out of England shows that the day of the weekon which you schedule your surgery could mean the difference between leaving the hospital on your own two feet or being wheeled out in a body bag.

In fact, researchers found that you may be an astounding 82% more likely to die if you schedule your surgery on a weekend, instead of waiting for a Monday. Continue reading

Statins linked to lasting kidney damage

When it comes to buying airtime, billion-dollar drugs like Crestor, Lipitor and Zocor are giving a certain green gecko a run for his money. In fact, these days the only way to avoid the constant onslaught of commercials for cholesterol-lowering statins is to turn off your television.

But I’m hoping a new study takes some of the Madison Avenue shine off of these potentially unsafe, and possibly even deadly, Continue reading

We are living in an age of upside-downs, where right is wrong, fiction is truth and war is peace. Those who fight the wars are subjected to their own house of mirrors via pharmaceutical “treatments.” Instead of providing U.S. soldiers and veterans with actual health care, the government throws pills at them and calls it “therapy.” Continue reading

The goal is to identify those who may abuse prescription drugs.

Software designed by a local physician to “score” patients’ risk for prescription drug abuse will be used in a federal pilot study looking at prescription practices.

NarxCheck, developed by Dr. Jim Huizenga, an emergency department doctor at Kettering Medical Center, and Eagle Software Corp., will be used in the study, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Continue reading

Beyond Antibiotics is the title of a book by two medical doctors, Keith Sehnert, MD and Lendon Smith, MD.  These gutsy authors challenge one of the most sacred cows of conventional medicine, the widespread use of antibiotics.  I have found antibiotics are very rarely needed, and most often they are very harmful.  I have drawn information from the book to write this article.

Doctors prescribe antibiotics at what can only be termed an incredible rate.  According to several studies done Continue reading

Every 14 minutes, a person is killed by prescription drugs — and unlike most other causes of preventable death, which have been on the decline for years, medication-induced deaths are on the upswing across the US. According to a recent analysis conducted by the Los Angeles Times (LA Times), drug-induced deaths have become so prevalent that their average yearly total now exceeds the number of deaths caused by traffic accidents.

It is truly a sad day in the world when the very medications prescribed for treating disease are one of the leading causes of death, including among young children. And based on data retrieved by the LA Times, the number of drug fatalities has doubled within the past ten years, as legal drugs Continue reading

This study paves the way for developing toxin antidotes to safeguard public health and national security.

A team of scientists from A*STAR’s Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) has discovered the secret recipe for ‘antidotes’ that could neutralize the deadly plant toxin Ricin, widely feared for its bioterrorism potential, as well as the Pseudomonas exotoxin (PE) responsible for the tens of thousands of hospital-acquired infections in immune-compromised patients all over the world. The results of this first ever genome-wide study to understand how the Ricin and PE toxins attack cells may also be useful for designing more effective antidotes against Diphtheria and Shiga-like toxins secreted by infectious strains of E. coli bacteria, such as those responsible for the recent food poisoning Continue reading
