istock photo of calcium supplements 300x203 Death by Calcium, why Calcium Supplements Increase Heart Attacks   Ron Rosedale, M.D. interviewed by Shelley Schlender, KGNU This is an interview with Shelley Schlender, KGNU radio, Boulder, Colorado.

New research published in the British Medical Journal indicates men and women over 40 who take calcium supplements increase their risk of heart attack by 30%, compared to people who don’t take the supplements.  The study points out that often, people take calcium supplements hoping that this will reduce their risk of breaking bones,  even though in actual fact, taking more calcium only reduces bone fractures by a marginal amount.  Baron and coauthors caution that the benefit of reducing bone fracture risk by taking calcium supplements may be outweighed by the likelihood of increasing heart attacks.

nejm1 Cancer, Pain Relief & Diet: Ron Rosedale and Shelley Schlender

Dr. Ron Rosedale, interviewed by Shelley Schlender.  Wonderful article brought together by Shelley, all credits below for graphics and content.  Learn more about Shelley and her passion for exposing the truth in health, www.meandmydiabetes.com

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine made headlines this week by showing that palliative care for terminal cancer patients, meaning pain and stress reduction care, extended their lives more than conventional chemo and radiation alone, and more than aggressive cancer treatments.  The study focused on lung cancer patients whose cancer had spread.  On average, those with conventional care alone lived six to twelve months.  Those with palliative care as well lived three months longer and reported better quality of life.  This study is a strong indicator that stress and pain reduction have powerful benefits.  For an alternative perspective on why these make a difference . . . and why another alternative treatment that might make a difference as well, here’s anti-aging expert, Dr. Ron Rosedale.  We caution you that while Dr. Rosedale’s views are intriguing . . . they’re also controversial, and they are not a substitution for the advice of your medical doctor.  Here’s Ron Rosedale:

RON ROSEDALE

No, we don’t want diseases, period. Unfortunately, it is part of life. The major problem is not that we’re getting the diseases, but that we’re getting them more frequently and younger. The rise in these chronic diseases—in fact, virtually all chronic diseases—correlates with the patterns of dietary changes that we’ve been seeing, perhaps delayed by 20 or 30 years for the results of the dietary changes to actually manifest themselves. But I think there’s a strong link between diet, metabolism, and all of the chronic diseases of aging, including neurodegenerative diseases.

Not everybody agrees that diet is a major contributor to this increase in neurodegenerative disease.   A more widely held medical theory is called the hygiene hypothesis.  It says autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases are increasing because our world has gotten too clean. We don’t have enough germs and dirtiness in the world, we have more vaccines and antibiotics used.

Ron Rosedale
A long time ago, maybe 15 years ago, when I was in Asheville, North Carolina, before leptin was discovered, I was doing a lot of research on my patients about insulin, to see what lowered it, what raised it. I remember one boy who came in, brought in by really nice parents.  He was a rolly polly 11-year old.  They were both thin, and they were wondering why he was getting fat.

He was starting to get ridiculed by his classmates and it was affecting him.  His fasting insulin was quite low.  So I said, well, let’s see what happens.  Let’s feed him half a piece of toast.blood test 300x203 The Toast Test   Ron Rosedale, M.D. interviewed by Shelley Schlender, KGNU I had done this to other people, too.  I knew that most people who have toast, it’ll cause their insulin to go from maybe a baseline of 5, which is quite good, to maybe the 30s or 40s, which is somewhat high.  (Note-This rise happens during a 2-hour test)  I measured his insulin level, after he ate a piece of toast, and his insulin levels went into the hundreds.

That is like the Dogrib Indians in Canada who were tested by Emoke Szathmary in the 1980s.  During a glucose tolerance test where she measured insulin levels, she noticed an extremely high rise in insulin response among a subgroup of the Dogrib who, over time, proved to be much more prone to develop diabetes when they’re eating the American diet. (When eating their traditional diet of fish and game meat, they did not get diabetes)

avandia pills1 Avandia Under Fire – with Dr. Ron Rosedale interviewed by Shelley Schlender

INTRODUCTION: Avandia is a drug that’s been used for over a decade to lower blood sugars in people with diabetes.  The reason that made Avandia important is that, in diabetics, blood sugars levels can go dangerously high.  They can hurt your heart, your kidneys, your eyes, every part of you.  High blood sugars can kill you.  And if you think this won’t ever happen to you, are you overweight? Do you wish you had more energy?  Do you need to urinate a lot — especially after eating something sweet?  How about high blood pressure?  Those all can be symptoms of diabetes.  And if a checkup reveals that your blood sugars are high, you might need to bring them down–with daily insulin shots.  Or exercise.  You could change your diet.   Or, how about taking a little pill?  Such as Avandia?

drug money doctor 240x3005 Letting the sunshine in on doctor pharma relationships    Andrew Jack    bmj.com pharmaceuticals correspondentDrug companies are increasingly obliged to publish details of payments to doctors. The United States is leading the charge, but are we getting the full story in Europe? Andrew Jack reports..

When the drug company Cephalon took  13 British doctors to the European pain congress in Lisbon in September 2009, the expenses it provided did not stop with travel, fees, and accommodation—and its presentations were not limited to a balanced scientific explanation of its products at a day time satellite meeting. An internal feedback document circulated to the sales team at the company (now owned by Teva) described one evening’s festivities that it funded for staff and doctors: “Dinner was fantastic . . . we then went to a few bars and to a club till 3am. All the customers were really looked after and spoke positively about Effentora [fentanyl]—let’s make sure they start Rxg [prescribing] now!”
