  1. Doctors need reminders of who they really work for

    Hey, doc, don't forget the patient!

    You'd think having a doctor earning a straight salary would be better for patients since there's no financial incentive to dish out unnecessary treatments.

    But it just doesn't work that way.

    Docs on salary usually work for big hospital corporations and medical conglomerates -- and while they may not have a financial incentive to over-treat patients, they often have an even bigger incentive to undertreat them.

    It's so bad now that the American Medical Association has just issued a warning to doctors... actually REMINDING them that their first responsibility is to the patient, not their penny-pinching corporate overlords.

    But c'mon, is that really going to make a difference?

    These doctors are almost always under strict orders to save as much money as they possibly can -- and that often means finding ways to make sure patients don't get everything they really need.

    And while their salaries may not change based on how many treatments they provide, some of them could get a bonus based on how much money they save by DENYING treatments -- including treatments the patient might actually NEED.

    It's sickening.

    So on the one hand you've got docs who perform needless life-ruining treatments to make an extra buck. On the other, you've got docs withholding important and necessary treatments to save a buck.

    It's the worst of both worlds -- and as usual, you're caught in the middle. That's why it's essential that you take charge of your own treatments, especially when it comes to cancer.

    If you've been diagnosed with this disease, don't panic. Inform yourself instead -- learn about your disease and ALL of your treatment options, including no treatment at all. One way to do that is with my subscription newsletter, The Douglass Report.

    My online archives alone are like a private cancer library that's open 24/7 -- and it's available to every single subscriber.

    But of course, you still need a doctor -- especially if you have cancer -- so I recommend an enlightened member of the (ACAM).

  2. Coffee can fight cancer

    A cuppa joe can slash your risk of oral cancers

    My mug's already overflowing with studies that show coffee fights cancer -- and today, I've got one more: Coffee can cut your risk of death by oral cancer in half.

    Looks like I'm going to need a bigger mug -- and you will, too, because the study of nearly 1 million men and women finds you won't beat this cancer with an occasional sip.

    You need to drink plenty of it -- four cups a day or more -- and it has to be fully loaded, too, since the study didn't find any cancer-fighting benefits at all for decaf.

    The study only looked at deaths, not diagnoses, so it's hard to say whether the coffee is actually preventing the disease, or just protecting you from death if you do get it.

    Either way, drink up -- because with 8,000 deaths a year in the United States alone, this is one cancer you don't want to mess around with. And besides, coffee can do a whole lot more than just beat oral cancers.

    Other studies have shown that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of cancers of the bowels, prostate, skin, esophagus, and more. And if that's not enough, coffee may also protect the brain and prevent Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's.

    Clearly, anyone who tells you coffee is a "bad" habit doesn't know what he's talking about -- unless he's talking about the way most people drink their java these days.

    You know the drinks -- the ones given fancy foreign names to justify the high prices, loaded with sugary syrups and lightened with disgusting things like soy "milk."

    At that point, it's not even coffee anymore. And besides, sugar and soy will INCREASE your cancer risk, not decrease it -- so save time and money and brew your own at home.

    Drink it black as night if you can -- and if you can't, the best way to mellow your coffee is with some farm-fresh heavy cream. Just make sure it's the real raw version and not that over-processed supermarket swill they call cream. (To learn more, and find out why you should make the switch to raw, click here.)

  3. Chelation proven to boost heart health

    A major new study proves chelation can improve the heart and save lives -- but the mainstream is trying to keep this life-saving therapy away from you.
  4. Europe pulls the plug on airport scanners

    The notoriously dangerous and invasive full-body scanners are being removed from airports in Europe -- is the US next?
  5. BPA in new heart risk

    BPA, the chemical used in plastic packages and can linings, can up your odds of coronary artery disease.
  6. The heart test you DON'T need

    Patients with heart attack symptoms are often blasted with radiation via a CT scan, but a new study finds these dangerous tests are completely unnecessary.
  7. Low levels of vitamin D can be deadly

    Low levels of vitamin D can boost the risk of death in seniors by nearly a third -- and triple the risk of death when it's accompanied by frailty.
  8. Nanoparticles can cause autoimmune disease

    The nanoparticles turning up in everything can cause autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
  9. Iron supplements can come with dangerous side effects

    Researchers advice that tired women pop iron supplements is ill advised and can lead to some serious side effects like cancer, heart disease, dementia, arthritis, and osteoporosis.
  10. Snoring linked to cancer death

    People who suffer from sleep apnea have up to five times the risk of death by cancer than people without the nighttime breath-robbing condition.
