Conflicts of Interest in Cancer Treatment, Part 1
July 14, 2020
Ralph Moss, Ph.D. writes the Moss Reports, custom guides for cancer patients to help them navigate alternatives. His new book, "Cancer Incorporated," is a critique of the excesses of the cancer research and treatment industry. Moss decries the conflicts of interest in cancer treatment, often amounting to outright kickbacks. He claims the criteria for approval of new and expensive drugs, touted as “game-changers”, are vague and misleading; their benefits are often exaggerated and their downsides minimized. All this is fueled by rampant profiteering, at the cost of patients’ well-being. Natural solutions are sidelined because of being unprofitable. Patients strive to get into clinical trials of promising drugs, but sometimes at their peril. Moss hails advances in precision immunotherapy, but believes their promise is over-hyped. He shares his own experience in dealing with cancer, which ultimately led him to embrace a conventional, but little-used, approach to minimize side effects. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Patient Empowerment, Part 1
July 9, 2020
Dr. William Davis, author of the best-seller “Wheat Belly,” argues for patient empowerment in a new book, “Undoctored: Why Healthcare Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor." Dr. Davis tells the story of his transformation from a successful interventional cardiologist to an outspoken critic of medical orthodoxy; Why does he urge people to eschew not only wheat, but all grain products? What’s wrong with gluten-free baked goods? Why take issue with mainstream nutritionists who urge “moderation”? What’s meant by “undoctoring”? Why has the term “healthcare” become an oxymoron? Why is cholesterol oversold as a predictor of heart risk? Can heart disease be managed without statins? Are coronary stents overdone? Dr. Davis highlights the benefits of a unique probiotic—lactobacillus reuteri—and offers a recipe for a gut-repleting yogurt that restores youthful appearance, strengthens bones, and combats muscle wasting. What role for dietary supplements? For exercise? Why follow Dr. Davis’ call to become an “unpatient”? Click HERE for part 2.
