Profits of Big Pharma relative to the Fortune 500

I recently misquoted a statistic that stuck in my head a little differently than how I originally read it. Here’s the truth: In 2002, the combined profits of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies were more than the combined profits than the other 490 companies in the Fortune 500! (This analysis compliments of journalist Randall F. […]

Californians—and everyone who cares about medical freedom, please help

If your child got cancer, you would not be able to opt out of chemotherapy and radiation on her behalf, to seek alternatives. (And there ARE alternatives–impressive, non-toxic ones, with better success rates than the toxic ones in many, if not most, cases. Alternatives that don’t rob your child of his future ability to father […]

All I think about is CANCER…am I a “conspiracy theorist?”…part 7 of 7

The ridiculous diatribe I read by an M.D., against all things non-medical, acts as if those who don’t subscribe to “modern medicine” are all quacks because they are conspiracy theorists. (Caught in his net include those utilizing means other than chemo to treat cancer, those wanting to avoid amalgam fillings, those wanting to avoid mercury […]

All I think about is CANCER…part 1 of 7

This past week I’ve been so busy, I barely had time to blog…I mean, breathe! My friend Jennie and I won a tennis doubles tournament. With friends, I camped in Big Cottonwood Canyon one night, hiked to Stewart Falls another night. Then my team went to Districts and we had matches three days in a […]

Huntsman Cancer Institute: surely you can do better than that!

Front page of the Sunday paper, a story about Le Tour De Donut. It’s a local bike race. The article’s subtitle: “It’s a food eating contest with some biking in between.” And the food was white sugar and white flour (and a bit of refined salt) fried in toxic hydrogenated grease. You were rewarded with […]

The rest of the story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 1 of 2.

So here’s the rest of the story with Rich, my first high-school boyfriend. I told you how I ran into him on the plane on his way to pharmacists’ immunization training, and he helped us out in Seattle. I told him, as we reminisced, that before I straightened out my lifestyle, I was 26 and […]

flu vaccine danger

My (ridiculously gorgeous) boyfriend Craig got the H1N1 vaccine on Weds. He took his kids to a free clinic–he said it was pandemonium, with people wearing masks and all kinds of crazy stuff. I could send you to Mike Adams’ (Health Ranger) or Joe Mercola’s sites to read a lot of fear mongering (or good […]

AstraZeneca . . . or a plant-based diet?

If you read this blog regularly, you’ve heard my opinion that the drug companies have to be watched closely because their motive is in direct conflict with public health interests.   Don’t give your money to most “breast cancer research” campaigns, for instance, because it’s usually just the drug companies double dipping.   That is, […]

“The plural of anecdote is not data” . . . part 1 of 4

I’m still laughing since I read that most excellent quote–thanks, Katie!   When I’m teaching my college students elemental data analysis and research, I tell them my two pet peeves about research in general, but particularly in the field of health and nutrition.   I say that I am completely frustrated with medicine.   The […]

$ billions spent on useless cholesterol drugs

Millions of Americans are taking Vytorin or Zetia for heart disease.   And yet, full results were finally released last week of a failed trial showing absolutely NO benefit from these drugs.   Two Congressional panels have launched probes into why it took drug makers almost two years to release results!   I could save […]
