As you may recall, a few weeks ago, the University of Maryland reached the identical conclusion when they studied Alzheimer’s disease.
|Some Cardiologists think prescribing has gotten out of hand.
The criticism was voiced by a number of leading heart doctors who attended the annual scientific sessions of the American College of Cardiology, held on March 9-11 in San Francisco. They said eliminating certain drugs could potentially improve care without compromising treatment. Evidence is growing that some medications are not effective.
MY TAKE-What are the chances of such a study ever being published? In 2000, Harvard doctor, Barbara Starfield published that physicians had become the 3rd leading cause of death in America, right behind heart disease and Cancer. This study takes a blow at the pharmaceutical industry, because from it we learn that regular old exercise is a safe and viable alternative to toxic, expensive, deadly and quite possibly useless drugs.
I believe this all boils down to the fact that we haven’t been hearing the truth from our healers. In fact, we have always had two choices; living a bit inconveniently by exercising regularly vs. the comfort of swallowing medications daily combined with knowing with certainty of their inherent dangers. Mine is not to judge, but I do love the honesty that young physicians are bringing back to medicine.
