  1. Knee replacement is an exercise in agony

    Knee replacements are all pain, no gain

    Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

    No, it's not Superman. It's you with your new knee -- at least if you believe all the garbage that the mainstream medicine marketing machine has been slinging.

    I tell you, every time I hear some slick-talking surgeon bragging about the benefits of knee replacement surgery and boasting about how he can wipe away YEARS of joint agony with a few swipes of his trusty scalpel, I have to ask him:

    Do you actually ever TALK to these poor saps after you replace their knees? Or do you just cash the check and move on to your next victim?

    Because I'll take my two eyes over a surgeon's word any day. And what I've seen time and again is that the folks who opt for knee replacements are the most miserable and disappointed people on earth.

    And two new studies prove that most of them had no idea what they were getting themselves into.

    If you've ever undergone a knee replacement -- or know someone who has -- you know it's some of the worst pain imaginable. It's like having your joint bashed with a lava-coated baseball bat over and over again.

    So some clever researchers set out to understand which knee replacement patients were at risk for the worst pain. And what they found has them sounding a wake-up call you'd better heed before EVER going under the knife.

    You see, researchers found that you're at an EXTREMELY HIGH risk of suffering from the worst post-surgery pain if you have arthritis... or if you're a woman between the ages of 45 and 65... or if you're overweight... or if you opted for general anesthesia... or if you spent a long time in a tourniquet... or if you lost a lot of blood during the surgery... or, get this, if you have large knee caps!

    It sounds like just about every blessed soul who opts for this butchery better expect to endure the worst pain of their life. You won't read that in your hospital's cute and colorful brochure, but that doesn't make it any less true.

    In fact, one study's author even admitted that the pain of a hip replacement isn't in the same galaxy as what you'll experience getting a new knee -- and most hospitals are terrible about helping you manage the pain.

    Friend, don't let that pain in the knee become a pain in the arse. Keep your weight down, and try cod liver oil, which can block the enzyme responsible for cartilage damage and can start delivering benefits in as little as 24 hours.

    Remember, surgery is a last resort -- not a first line of defense. Because when you fall for the mainstream's lies about joint replacement, you'll soon find yourself knee-deep in worse pain than you ever imagined.

  2. Common painkillers in new death risk

    Urgent new painkiller warning

    Millions of people gobble down NSAID painkillers like there's no tomorrow. And if you're one of them, there may not be a tomorrow for you -- because these drugs could pack some deadly risks.

    High doses of NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, diclofenac, and coxibs may double your risk of heart failure and cause your risk of all major coronary events -- including deadly ones -- to shoot up by more than a third, according to new research in Lancet.

    Now, I've seen some of Big Pharma's media buddies dismiss this as just a "small" increase in risk. But let me show you just how "small" it really is -- because the odds of a coronary or vascular event aren't 1 in a million.

    They're not even 1 in a 1,000.

    More like 1 in 125 -- because the researchers say there will be roughly eight extra coronary or vascular events... such as a heart attack or even death... for every 1,000 patients on these meds.

    That's a death risk of 1 in 500, or way too close for comfort.

    (Oh, and if you've ever suffered a heart attack you should swear off NSAIDs sooner rather than later. They could kill you...literally. Find out how here.)

    Of course, heart failure and death aren't the only dangers here. NSAIDs can also cause your risk of serious gastrointestinal problems -- including bleeding ulcers -- to skyrocket by between 200 percent and 400 percent, depending on the drug, according to the study.

    A bleeding ulcer probably won't kill you... but it might make you wish you were dead.

    But why face any of these risks when you've got other options? Your own best option will depend on what's causing your pain, but curcumin is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory that's proven to bring real relief to arthritis patients, including both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.

    For general all-around anti-inflammatory comfort, you can't do much better than what you'll find in grandma's cod liver oil -- or, at the very least, a quality omega-3 fish oil supplement.

    And for perfect portable arthritis pain relief on the go, give Arthritis Relief Cream -- from our affiliates at NorthStar Nutritionals -- a try. Just smooth it on and it gets to work right away... beginning to soothe on contact!

  3. When two-for-one is a bad deal

    Pills and more pills. First you've got the pills you're supposed to take, and then you've got the pills you've got to take to deal with the side effects from the first ones.
  4. Aspirin as dangerous as rat poison

    Here's an easy way to make stomach-wrecking aspirin look downright reasonable: Just compare it to something even worse. That's always the story behind any study that gives aspirin a thumbs-up, and this latest one is no different.
  5. Trade your stroke for a heart attack

    Looking to slash your risk of a stroke? Good news, folks -- you can... and all you need to do is give yourself a heart attack instead.
  6. Listen to the fish

    Researchers looked at data on nearly 3,000 people, and found that those who ate fish twice a week had a 42 percent lower risk of hearing loss past the age of 50.
