The Tyranny of Evidence-Based Medicine, Part 1
December 21, 2021
Dr. Richard Amerling is a board-certified nephrologist and Past-President of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS). He currently serves as Associate Medical Director of America’s Frontline Doctors. What is EBM? Originally intended to bring scientific rigor to the practice of medicine, EBM has been hijacked to further the aims of BigPharma to standardize drug and vaccine protocols with sketchy evidence of safety and efficacy. EBM robs physicians of autonomy and limits their therapeutic options. The result is a kind of paint-by-numbers medicine. Dr. Amerling discusses how this has restricted plausible therapies for Covid; other examples include past campaigns to exaggerate the benefits of cholesterol drugs, installing them as “standard of care”. With their pliant enablers in the media, governments are leveraging EBM to limit what drugs and therapies are available to patients. Click HERE for part 2.

The Twists and Turns of Humans’ Evolutionary Path, Part 1
August 3, 2021
Alex Bezzerides Ph.D. is a professor of biology and author of "Evolution Gone Wrong: The Curious Reasons Why Our Bodies Work (Or Don't)." He contends our bodies are imperfect, the result of evolutionary compromises between conflicting imperatives. For example, big brains enabled humans to develop technology and language; but our big heads have doomed women to painful and perilous deliveries. Developing an upright posture enabled us to free our remarkable hands; but standing also cursed us with back, knee, and ankle problems. Bezzerides applies this paradigm to other health problems we’re prey to: crooked teeth, failing eyesight, choking deaths, and hernias. Are humans still evolving when we have medical technology to prevent nature from “culling the herd”? Are obesity and blood sugar problems holdovers of traits that once furthered our survival? Dr. Bezzerides is the biology professor I wish I’d had! Click HERE for part 2.
