Choline and TMAO: Eggs Still Don’t Cause Heart Disease

See on Scoop.it21st Century Integrative Medicine

Let’s take a closer look at the studies on TMAO to see if it’s really time to swap your morning eggs for a tofu scramble.

Asher Laub‘s insight:

A New England Journal of Medicine publication, shockingly misleads readers about the damuage eggs cause, ignoring the TMAO byproduct of fish which is significantly higher, and recommending, based on invalid conclusions, a high fiber, vegetarian diet. The high fiber diet is also based on faulty research conclusions. Moderate fiber diets are what should be consumed. Kudos to such a reputable journal! Sort of hints @ chronism.

FDA Does It Again 

by David Brownstein MD

Blog

May 12, 2013
http://blog.drbrownstein.com/fda-does-it-again/

On May 3, 2013, the FDA approved a Big Pharma Cartel founding member Merck drug Liptruzet. Liptruzet is a combination drug of Zetia and Lipitor. I wrote to you about the failure of Zetia in three separate blog posts. They can all be found by clicking here:http://blog.drbrownstein.com/?s=zetia. 

Zetia is a failed drug. It should never be prescribed and should have been pulled from the market years ago. There is no excuse for any doctor prescribing Zetia for any condition. Zetia works by blocking cholesterol absorption in the gut. Conventional doctors believe that drug therapies that lower cholesterol levels reduce the risk of heart disease. However, Zetia, which has been around for over 10 years, has never been shown to lower the risk of developing a heart attack or stroke. Furthermore, Zetia has never been shown to prolong life. 

Why the FDA would approve this combination of Zetia and Lipitor is beyond belief. The previous combination of Zetia and Zocor, known as Vytorin, was proven to be a colossal failure in multiple studies—see my previous blog posts. FDA’s action is a perfect example of why we spend more money on health care than any other people on the planet. Liptruzet will cost $5.50 per pill. This means a patient prescribed Liptruzet will spend over $2,000.00 per year on a worthless drug that will be associated with side effects such as muscle aches and pains, memory loss, and neurological disorders. 

We take too many ineffective drugs that are too expensive. Do all of these drugs translate into better healthcare outcomes? Heck no. As compared to every other wealthy Western country, we finish last or near the bottom on every single health indicator. In Liptruzet’s case, there is no justifiable reason for the FDA to approve it. This is another example, amongst many, of why the FDA should be disbanded. The FDA gives false credibility to Big Pharma. 

If you are on Zetia, I suggest talking to your doctor about stopping it. Ask him/her for any studies showing a clinical benefit such as a significantly lowered risk for heart disease, heart attack, stroke, or increased longevity. I can assure you that you won’t be getting any articles from your doctor since they don’t exist. 

More information about cholesterol-lowering medications can be found in my book, "Drugs That Don’t Work and Natural Therapies That Do".

See on Scoop.it21st Century Integrative Medicine

Asher Laub‘s insight:

For immediate relief, topical applications of mineral oils (extralight mineral oil, available at most health food stores) or a 10 percent salve of MaxEPA in mineral oll ran be helpful.Over-the-counter cortisone creams can be helpful, but their regular use can cause a rebound effect, so try to use them sparingly.Investigate the possibility of food allergies.Suspect candidiasis as a cause. If elimination of yeast is not helpful, try fumaric acid treatments as follows.Try fumaric acid. Because of possible side effects, I recommend that patients have the treatment under supervision.First two weeks: one 500-mg. capsule dally.Next two weeks’ two 500-rog, capsules daily; one morning, one evening.Next two weeks: three 500-mg. capsules dally; one with each meal.After the first six weeks you can increase the capsules by one a day for a two-week period until you reach a maximum dose of seven capsules daily.After lesions have substantially cleared, a maintenance dose of one or two capsules should be taken daily. NOTE: Patients on this treatment should avoid taking penicillin and pregnant women should not use this treatment, and all people with psoriasis should avoid tetracycline.Relaxation exercises and regular exercise are important to control stress.

 IN ADDITION TO YOUR DAILY SUPPLEMENTS, TAKE:

– Evening primrose oil: 500 mg. three times daily

– Fish oils in the form of MaxEPA: 1,000 to 2,000 mg. three times daily.
