Human Medical Experimentation In The US
Of course not all doctors, etc., are bad, but reading this article will hopefully make people realize that it is very foolish to blindly trust anyone with your own health.
Heart Disease Is Big Business!
Cardiologist William Davis states in an interview: "Performing heart procedures pays big money. Prevention of heart disease does not. That simple perversion of the healthcare equation explains a lot. Physicians and hospitals are not in business to provide health. They operate businesses that are meant to profit from treatment of disease. Wiping out a disease is not part of the picture."
Read about how some patients are put on drugs needlessly, and how a low-carb diet can reduce the
plaque in your arteries.
It may come as a surprise to some people that drugs actually can cause disease. According to Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, in an
article called Why Drugs Get Pulled Off the Market,
"Safe does not mean harmless. Every drug comes with risks, and our tolerance for risk is higher for drugs that treat serious and life-threatening illnesses." So, if you would
rather not be a human guinea pig, you might want to get multiple opinions before taking
any drugs, research possible drug-free solutions, and try to avoid drugs that have not been on the market very long, if possible.

Studies show that drinking chlorinated water is the main cause of arterial plaques which causes heart disease, but there are still people drinking unfiltered tap water. There is also an increased

The American Journal Of Public Health, "Up to 2/3 of the harmful effects of chlorine are due to inhalation and skin absorption while showering." There are shower filters that may be used, but most people don't have them.
This also might be a good reason to avoid swimming in pools filled with chlorinated water.

The Free-Radical Theory of Aging

this article about supplements that may
be used to combat the concerns associated with this theory of aging.
The Glycation Theory of Aging
Glucose inside our cells is used as the fuel for energy. However, this theory of aging suggests that
suggests that when glycation happens, the glucose attaches itself to proteins or DNA and permenantly damages the function of the
protein and DNA. According to this theory, keeping blood glucose levels low is of vital importance because glycation happens
when there are higher levels of glucose circulating in the blood.
The Telemeres Theory of Aging
Telemeres are the sequences of nucleic acids extending from chromosomes. This theory suggests that
every time a cell divides, the telemeres duplicate themselves less perfectly than the time before which leads to aging.
