  1. FDA withheld lifeline from dying cancer patients

    FDA inaction sentences kids to death

    It's a good thing the FDA only has three letters in its name so anyone who works there can spell it. Because I'm more convinced than ever that these bozos don't know how to read.

    They sure as heck aren't reading the thousands of complaints from folks who have been sickened by the dangerous prescription drugs they approved. And it's crystal clear that nobody in that entire sham shop has ever taken a minute to read our Constitution.

    Here in America, we have something called the separation of powers, so that no one person gets to serve as judge, jury, and executioner. But there are terminally ill kids and adults across America who will tell you the FDA has never gotten that message.

    A six-year-old boy is dying in a New York hospital right now. By the time you read this, he may already be dead. And with this child lying in a coma, breathing his last breaths, the FDA has FINALLY approved an alternative therapy that could have saved his life six months ago.

    And their toe-dragging is simply because they're out to ruin a "controversial" doctor who doesn't bother to worship at the feet of Big Pharma and Uncle Sam.

    Since 2013, the FDA has banned Texas doctor Stanislaw Burzynski from treating brain cancer patients using his antineoplaston therapy, a process designed to shrink tumors without traditional (and sickening) radiation and chemotherapy. The FDA has been harassing Dr. Burzynski for DECADES, and when they brought the hammer down on him this time, they dealt a death sentence to every single brain cancer patient he treats.

    We're talking about folks who are an awful lot like you and me... a 47-year-old mom from California... a 12-year-old kid from New Hampshire. And every single one of these patients were told by the mainstream that there were no conventional treatments available to them.

    Let me give it to you straight. I have no blessed idea whether antineoplaston works. The jury is still out. I know Dr. Burzynski and his colleagues claim some amazing successes, and I know he still goes to work every day, even though he's now in his 70s, because he believes so strongly in the therapy.

    But here's what I DO know for sure. When a person has been let down by mainstream medicine... when they've been told that there's NOTHING left to do but go home and die... they have every damn right in the world to seek whatever treatment they can find!

    And the FDA made these patients wait months for "permission" to use antineoplaston, essentially ensuring every one of them would die. Dr. Burzynski isn't the criminal here. The criminals here are the heartless baboons in the FDA offices right now who took away the last thing these cancer patients had.

    Hope.

  2. The 'routine' exam that'll up your tumor risk

    Dental X-rays linked to brain tumors

    Here's a quick and easy way to up your tumor risk: Visit the dentist!

    Dentists shoot radiation at anything that moves. They call it a "routine" X-ray despite the fact that there shouldn't be anything routine about exposure to radiation.

    Now, a new study shows why -- because people who get suckered into "routine" annual dental X-rays have a dramatically higher risk of brain tumors.

    Researchers from a who's who of top institutions -- including Yale and Harvard -- say data on nearly 2,700 people finds that yearly bitewing X-rays double the risk of meningioma, or a tumor in the lining of the brain.

    Worse still, those who got regular panorex dental exams starting from age 10 or younger had five times the tumor risk.

    But this is another one you can file under "obvious and unsurprising." In fact, you can even file it under "best-case scenario," because at least meningioma tumors are nonmalignant and often cause no problems.

    Many of the people who have them don't even know it.

    But dental X-rays can also dramatically raise the risk of all kinds of other tumors, including the cancerous tumors than can hurt or even kill you.

    One study found that 10 or more dental X-rays over the course of a lifetime boosts the risk of thyroid cancer by 5.4 times when compared to people who avoid getting zapped.

    But do we really need more research to know that radiation brings all kinds of bad news? It's RADIATION, after all -- and any exposure comes with risk. Even Homer Simpson knows that.

    If you do need a dentist -- and we all do from time to time -- find one who won't use fluoride or mercury and will limit the X-rays to only when you really need them.

    Along with a lead apron, make sure the dentist provides a thyroid collar (and if your dentist doesn't have one, find a dentist who does).

    And limit your time with the dentist by caring for your teeth the Douglass way: Skip the toothpaste and mix plain old baking soda with 3 percent hydrogen peroxide. Work it into your teeth and gums with your fingertips, and rinse with the peroxide.

    You'll have the best smile in town.

    I'm not done with teeth yet -- and if you wear dentures, I've got news for you. Keep reading!

  3. Shine a light on prostate cancer

    If you want to save your prostate and spare yourself a cancer death, forget all about PSA tests, drugs, surgeries, and everything else the mainstream has been throwing at this disease. Head to the beach instead.
  4. Screening out the PSA test

    You already know the deal: Despite all the blah-blah-blah from TV doctors, celebrity advocates, and cancer-screening ad campaigns, a PSA test won't save your life.
  5. The high-tech mammogram scam

    Let's get this out there right off the bat: Mammograms have always been about making money, not saving lives. Doubt me at your own risk on this one, ladies, but the numbers speak for themselves. And the newest numbers scream "SCAM" as loud as they can.
  6. Shocking cell phone research

    A new study makes the ridiculous claim that mobile phones are perfectly safe after all -- so keep right on yapping, and ignore that little headache that won't go away when it pops up in a few years.
  7. Ending the breast cancer panic

    Believe it or not, sometimes leaving a tumor in your body is the best thing you can do – especially when it comes to certain types of breast cancer.
  8. Why you should put off prostate treatment

    A new study has found that men with early-stage prostate cancer actually aren't at a big risk if they choose to take a wait-and-see approach to treatment rather than going immediately under the knife.
