OPINION
Ebola outbreak: Why Obama is allowing Ebolaphobia to spread

Adults admit to anxiety about whether the illness could strike many more people here, and children have confided to me that they are terrified of Ebola. And what is being said is only the obvious part of the psychological virus (call it “Ebolophobia”) that is spreading; I would venture that millions of people are already unconsciously spending mental energy to suppress their worries that the disease could infect them or those they love.

Part of the preventive health strategy to help contain this psychological virus should be a reliable flow of information and bold policy from the Obama administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But, already, their response lacks the necessary element of steady stewardship. And that’s because of President Obama’s continuing reticence to put America first.

Rahm’s rule: “Never let a good crisis go to waste!”

It distracts the Sheeple and makes them think they need the Gooferment to “protect” them.

Argh!

If I was “King” like BHO44, then:

* Travel ban;

* Fire up the CDC for a daily national announcement;

* Fire up the FDA for an fast track plan for drugs;

* Put DoD on the Southern Border problem;

* Nuke the whole Homeland Security organization; and

* Put Biden in charge of the “Ebola” effort.

Transcript: Treating Alzheimer’s with Turmeric

To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring, watch the above video. This is just an approximation of the audio contributed by Katie Schloer.

There is a long list of compounds that of been isolated from turmeric, and it’s possible that each component in the mixture of curcumin-like compounds plays a distinct role in making it useful against Alzheimer’s disease, and hence a mixture of compounds might better represent turmeric in its medicinal value better than curcumin alone. But why concoct some artificial mixture when Mother Nature already did it for us with turmeric? Because you can’t patent the spice. And if you can’t patent it, how are you going to charge more than 15 cents?

When we think of the devestation that Alzheimer’s causes, it would seem that “we” would have a “national experiment”?

Financially the Gooferment picks up the tab for custodial nursing home care when the victims go broke. Seems like a cheap and easy thing to try.

Even if it doesn’t work, the cost is trivial. $100 per year versus $100,000 per year.

Bottom line: if you can’t patent it, how are you going to charge more than 15 cents?

Argh!

Will there be better living through chemistry? Count on it.

Will there be long waits in local doctors’ offices – doctors who still serve Medicare patients? Yes.

Will thousands of physicians cease to take new patients because too many new patients will be on Medicare? Yes.

Start making plans to shift to the medicine of the future. It will be cross-border medicine. That is where the savings will be. That is where the innovation will be. That is where the FDA won’t be.

*** end quote ***

One can only hope.

Having “lost” Frau Reinke to an know blood disorder, during which some very smart and dedicated people gave her their best effort, “medicine” is still at best and art. At worst, it’s a corrupt system where no one cares.

I attribute that to the lack of “greed”. Remember “Greed is good” as a meme because it get that species, which is characterized by its usual uncooperativeness and irritability, to work together to satisfy as many needs and wants has possible. 

Perfect?

Not by any means. But the minute “we” stray away from that essential motivation, “we” get sub-par results. You can count on it!

Argh!

Is This More-Dangerous-Than-Aspartame Sweetener Hiding in Your Food?
by Joseph Mercola

*** begin quote ***

On August 16, 2000, the law firm of Hartman & Craven filed comments on the neotame docket pertaining to the lack of safety data submitted in support of neotameiv, stating in part:

“A food additive petition has been submitted to the FDA for the artificial sweetener neotame. In that petition, the sponsor claims the data presented demonstrate that the compound produces no adverse effects at a dose of 1000 mg/kg/day in the rat. The sponsor also claims that the product should be safe for patients with diabetes. A review of the data submitted to the FDA does not support these conclusions.

In fact, no safe human usage level can be determined based on the submitted data. The animal experimental evidence indicates a toxic effect on growth. The clinical evidence raises concerns about glucose control in patients with diabetes.

Searches for an explanation resolving the adverse findings leave no clear acceptable answers that would insure the safety of the public but does stimulate speculation on questions relating to possible liver effects.”

 

*** end quote ***

Now I am NO fan of the FDA. If you had to advance an example of “regulatory capture” (i.e., those being regulated run the regulatory body), then probably #2 on the list of examples is the FDA.

(#1 is the UN Human Rights Council where horrible dictatorships are a majority on that Council. Talk about the fox “guarding” the hen house! Why “we, the USA, is paying for that whole UN charade is beyond me. Thank Prez Wilson and FDR, what a mess.)

I found most interesting the assertion that using artificial sweeteners fatten you up. Like the cattle cited to bring the up to market weight.

Maybe we’re being dumb about this.

What did “Grok” (i.e., the mythical caveman in the Primal Diet series) do?

Drank only water! Ate only stuff he hunted or gathered.

Maybe we should do the same?
