  1. Bariatric surgery cheerleaders unveil shameful sales pitch

    Weight-loss surgery claims are hard to stomach

    I'm living proof that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. When I meet a gal who can cook a perfect rib eye with all the trimmings, I fall head over heels fast.

    But I guess those masochists in the mainstream don't have a romantic side… or maybe they're just a bit too literal. Because these bozos are convinced that the path to better heart health runs straight through your belly -- and they have the PERFECT gruesome surgery to prove it.

    The mainstream monkeys at the Mayo Clinic -- the folks who perform 72,000 surgeries a year, enough to cover HALF the population of Dayton, OH -- are now claiming bariatric surgery can help you prevent a heart condition you'll probably never develop in the first place.

    In their study, just presented at the Heart Rhythm Society's annual conference, Mayo researchers tracked 438 obese patients to see whether a gastric bypass prevented them from developing atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heartbeat.

    And if you ask me, some federal prosecutor ought to take every darn word of that study and turn it into a criminal indictment.

    Where do I start? First, a full 75% of the patients studied opted for bariatric surgery, which has already killed HUNDREDS of people around the world. If you were ever looking for rock-solid proof that the mainstream is steering fat folks toward surgery, instead of counseling them on healthy weight loss, this was it.

    Even worse, when all was said and done, bariatric surgery only reduced A-Fib risk by a measly 10 percentage points. Meanwhile, as I've told you before, fish oil can slash your A-Fib risk 30%, and you don't need some surgeon to slice your belly open.

    The mainstream will stop at nothing to talk you into dangerous gastric bypass and bariatric surgeries that leave you puking your guts out after every meal and can cause potentially deadly vitamin deficiencies. They're like a slimy used car salesman trying to sell you a car with no engine by bragging about its lovely leather interior.

    But let's get real -- A-Fib is only common among senior citizens, particularly folks over 70. And these ARE NOT the same folks lining up for gastric bypass. For the rest of you, your chance of getting A-Fib is less than 1%.

    You might be a little porky, but don't get sold this pig in a poke. Because there's one thing bariatric surgery is practically guaranteed to deliver, and it's not a slim figure or a new lease on life.

    It's a lifetime of regret -- and there are corpses all over the world to prove it.

  2. Merck pushes forward with osteoporosis drug linked to strokes

    Dicey bone-building pill could be a heart-stopper

    Imagine it's the 1870s and you and the family are working the homestead in some Midwestern prairie town.

    That's when a traveling snake oil salesman set up shop in the village square and unloads the worst sales pitch you've ever heard. He tells you his miracle tonic won't regrow your hair or loosen up that balky knee -- heck, he admits it may even kill you.

    Then he tries to sell it to you for $100 a bottle.

    And if that sounds crazier than having your shoes shined in a dust storm, then you'll be sorry you missed a recent Merck shareholders meeting. Because a drug company scientist violated Big Pharma's first rule of business.

    He told the truth. He admitted Merck's new drug is a would-be killer -- and they're going to try to sell it to you anyway.

    Merck, which rakes in a cool $48 billion a year off your misery, has announced it's going to plow ahead and seek FDA approval for its potentially dangerous osteoporosis drug odanacatib. And odanacatib will strengthen your bones alright -- in fact, you may have the finest looking skeleton in the cemetery.

    That's because even Merck's top researcher is admitting that the drug has been found to cause strokes and atrial fibrillation -- a rare and possibly deadly irregular heartbeat -- among folks in clinical trials.

    But Merck has poured MILLIONS into developing drugs like odanacatib, and I imagine your life is worth a heck of a lot less to them than that.

    This isn't some outrage -- it's the new normal. Big Pharma is bringing DOZENS of potentially deadly drugs to market each year, practically daring the cowards at the FDA to reject them.

    But like an unemployed mason, Uncle Sam just doesn't have the stones. If you want to keep your bones rock solid as you age, try natural supplements like magnesium that are great for your bones AND your heart.

    But skip Merck's latest wonder cure. Because it's a potential killer... and that smiling carnival barker trying to sell you a bottle knows it.
