Why are Doctors killing us?

 

I had a pharmacist in the office yesterday and we discussed what is wrong with health care and what is wrong with the Obama “Sick Care” plan. Some will agree with these ideas and some will not care, but most will agree that the whole system is sick and most likely will not be improved until the whole system breaks the government economically. After the collapse, and possibly violence, we may get a new system that will actually help the people.

We are a country of extremes. When something gets bad, the people get up in arms and the powers-that-be make adjustments. The public does not think the government would allow any corporation to harm them, so if something unhealthy happens, the public expects the government to solve the problem.

I hope I am getting your attention because there is something wrong – your health – and at this time your government doesn’t care and your doctors don’t have time to care.

The single biggest cause of poor health and disease today is sugar and high fructose corn syrup. They are causing heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, cancer, cholesterol, triglycerides and degenerative diseases.

When a patient goes into his or her doctor and the doctor says you are pre-diabetic or diabetic and if you follow the instructions that he or she or a dietician give you, you can lead a normal life (they do not say at this time that sugar, HFCS and diabetes alone will shorten your life by 9 to 20 years). You must come back regularly and follow a diabetic diet and take these medications. They don’t mention that, after years of the pills and continued eating of sugars and HFCS, the diabetes will probably get worse and you will need to give yourself a shot of insulin one to two times per day for the rest of your life. They also do not mention that if heart disease is not present at this time it will be shortly after the diabetes starts.

Your doctor will not be callous at this time and thank you for the money you are going to put into his or her pocket, but he or she knows that you are going to be responsible for paying over $300,000 before you die. This money will pay for office expenses, but a lot of this will go to the new BMW’s every couple of years, the doctor’s kids’ new cars and, of course, the doctor’s $750,000.00 house will be in the best of neighborhoods.

 Doctors are not stupid or they would never have made it through medical school, internship or residency. I also venture to say that most doctors really do care, but the problem is time and money.

When you show up with pre-diabetes, doctors know that, at this juncture, it is possible to change your life and prevent becoming a diabetic.  Unfortunately, they also know most people don’t give a hoot and will not change their life style. With this in mind, the doctors are not going to waste their time telling you to stop eating sugar and HFCS (I know this is over simplified but it is still true).

The most important issue is that even if the doctor cares and tries to advise the patient to do the right thing, the doctor is not getting paid to give you good advice. They can’t pay the bills advising people to do the right thing (this applies to heart disease, cancer and every other disease) and so the easy way out is to give you the diet, the prescription and tell you to return in a few weeks to check your blood sugar level and adjust your medications. In the case of heart disease and cancer, they get you into surgery and post-op treatment.

Hopefully, you are asking how we can fix this problem, but the problem is that no one wants to fix it because everyone is making massive amounts of money and as long as the cash cow – our government – is willing to pay, the system will never change.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the day of reckoning is coming soon.

The amount of people with diabetes, the new diabetics from the baby boomers and now the children with diabetes is going to break the government “bank”. There is no way the government can continue to tax the people for diseases that are preventable, empire building in other nations with our military and giving foreign aid to countries that is spent on the lavish lifestyles of their leaders. There is a point coming soon that the people will rebel and refuse to pay more taxes.

Health care has got to change to real prevention and not lip service to prevention. Medicine/drug corporations try to make the public believe that keeping you from dying quickly while prescribing massive amounts of expensive drugs is prevention. Unfortunately, the government (politicians who are bought off by Big Pharma) has bought this misguided health care system hook, line and sinker. (I just could not stop myself from using the fishing term.)

What can we do to change the coming disaster? Make no mistake – the system will fall apart before it gets better.

You have to decide if you want to help yourself before the collapse or wait for the government to try and fix the problem; however, you may be dead before there is substantial change.

  • Demand that agriculture change from chemicals to sustaining practices. We know that there is too much money being made by corporations to change, so you have to take responsibility for yourself and your family.
  • Doctors must be paid for preventing disease and penalized monetarily for “sick-care medicine”.
  • We have to stop “food” manufacturers from deceiving the people with toxic ingredients like HFCS, sugar, MSG, Equal and hydrolyzed vegetable proteins. If you want to avoid early death, you will have to take care of yourself and your family as food changes will not happen until after the collapse of “sick care.”

Your future and longevity at this time depends on you and how willing you are to help yourself and your family. I would like to think that there will be no disaster or collapse, but we are on a collision course and I don’t believe anything will stop it. Diabetes will trigger the change.

I don’t believe doctors are killing us on purpose or that they are altogether uncaring, but the system is rigged against them and us, the people. Ralph Nader and Sydney Wolfe, MD group estimate that doctors, nurses, hospitals and drug corporations kill 400,000 people a year and disable another 400,000 people each year.

Should we tolerate this or just write off the fact that millions of people are dying before their time. Are you going to be one of these early deaths that also run out of money before the end and have to live in poverty?

Can McDonalds (and other processed foods) Really Kill You?

YES, processed food can and will kill you and your family if you eat enough on a regular basis.

The classic Morgan Spurlock’s documentary “Superseize Me” explained how one man ate McDonalds “food” for one month and his health began to fail quickly. In just four weeks he was on his way to obesity and diabetes. We all know that fast foods are not healthy but processed foods can be purchased from grocery stores, so fast foods are not the only way to hurt our health. Actually, any restaurant food is unhealthy.

The following info is depressing in its truth but everyone needs to know what is wrong with food and how to do better for themselves and their families. I got the info from Mike Adams article “Surprise Ingredients in Fast Food” and from a site explaining how to read between the lines to find the massive amounts of MSG in store-bought foods and restaurants.

Below is a partial list of the most common names for disguised MSG.  Remember also that the powerful excitotoxins aspartate and L-cysteine are frequently added to foods and, according to FDA rules, require no labeling at all.

Additives that always contain MSG

  • Monosodium Glutamate
  • Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
  • Hydrolyzed Protein
  • Hydrolyzed Plant Protein
  • Plant Protein Extract
  • Sodium Caseinate
  • Calcium Caseinate
  • Yeast Extract
  • Textured Protein
  • Autolyzed Yeast
  • Hydrolyzed Oat Flour

Terms that frequently indicate hidden MSG additives

  • Malt extract
  • Bouillon
  • Broth
  • Stock
  • Flavoring
  • Natural Flavoring
  • Natural Beef or Chicken Flavoring
  • Seasoning
  • Spices

Additives that may contain MSG or excitotoxins

  • Carrageenan
  • Enzymes
  • Soy Protein Concentrate
  • Soy Protein Isolate
  • Whey Protein Concentrate
  • Protease enzymes of various sources can release excitotoxin amino acids from food proteins.

The above are to be avoided at all costs. Avoiding will curtail eating out at any restaurant.

The following are the chemicals that are in restaurants. I am not picking on McDonalds. All restaurants are unhealthy.

A lot of the following chemicals are GRAS – Generally Recognized As Safe, but the truth is that most have not been tested for people consumption.

McDonald’s

The egg’s reputation is recovering, but scrambled eggs as a part of McDonald’s breakfast include much more than egg. Their pasteurized whole eggs have sodium acid pyrophosphate, citric acid, and monosodium phosphate (all added to preserve color), and nisin, a preservative. To top it off, the eggs are prepared with liquid margarine: liquid soybean oil, water, partially hydrogenated cottonseed and soybean oils (trans fats), salt, hydrogenated cottonseed oil (trans fat), soy lecithin, mono- and diglycerides, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate (preservatives), artificial flavor, citric acid, vitamin A palmitate and beta carotene (color). 

McDonald’s coffee drinkers get the following chemical list of ingredients: sodium phosphate, sodium polyphosphate, Di-Acetyl Tartrate Ester of Monoglyceride, sodium stearoyl lactylate, tetra sodium pyrophosphate, sodium hexametaphosphate, sodium citrate and carrageenan. 

McDonald’s salads have some interesting ingredients. The salads with grilled chicken also have liquid margarine.

Several salads have either cilantro lime glaze or orange glaze added. Along with many of McDonald’s sauces, both the cilantro lime glaze and the orange glaze contain propylene glycol alginate. While propylene glycol is considered “GRAS” for human consumption, it is not legal for use in cat food because the safety hasn’t been proven yet [10]. Propylene glycol is also used “As the killing and preserving agent in pitfall traps, usually used to capture ground beetles” [10]. 

The chili lime tortilla strips that are included in the southwest salads have several ingredients used to hide MSG. They also contain two ingredients that advertise the presence of MSG: disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate. 
 
The chicken has sodium phosphates (of an unspecified variety). It could be trisodium phosphate (a cleanser), monosodium phosphate (a laxative) or disodium hydrogen phosphate [11]. Why would McDonald’s add sodium phosphates (a foaming agent), and dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent in their crispy chicken breast fillets? It isn’t dishwasher detergent.

The other point to remember is that all chicken is raised with genetically modified grains, hormones, steroids, antibiotics, arsenic, herbicides and pesticides. After slaughtering, they pump the chicken up with a solution of High fructose Corn Syrup, MSG, salt and water.

Burger King
 
It’s interesting to note that the BK Veggie Burger has six ingredients commonly used to hide free glutamate (MSG): calcium caseinate, hydrolyzed corn, yeast extract, soy protein isolate, spices and natural flavors. At the end of the ingredients list, it states This is NOT a vegan product. The patty is cooked in the microwave.  

Burger King has three salads to choose from – the TENDERCRISP Garden Salad, the TENDERGRILL Garden Salad and the Side Garden Salad.
 
A salad may be a little boring without a dressing like Ken’s Fat Free Ranch Dressing which includes titanium dioxide (an artificial color, or sunscreen, depending on use), preservatives and the ingredient seemingly mandatory in all ranch dressings: monosodium glutamate. 
  
TENDERGRILL® CHICKEN BREAST FILET
Chicken Breast with Rib Meat, Water, Seasoning (Maltodextrin, Salt, Sugar, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Spices, Natural Flavors, Onion Powder, Modified Corn Starch, Chicken Fat, Chicken Powder, Chicken Broth, Disodium Guanylate and Disodium Inosinate, Citric Acid, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Dehydrated Garlic, and Artificial Flavors, Modified Corn Starch, Soybean Oil, Salt, Sodium Phosphates. Glazed with: Water, Seasoning [Maltodextrin, Salt, Sugar, Methylcellulose, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Partially Hydrogenated Sunflower Oil, Modified Potato Starch, Fructose, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Dehydrated Garlic, Spices, Modified Corn Starch, Xanthan Gum, Natural Flavors, Disodium Guanylate and Disodium Inosinate, Chicken Fat, Carmel Color, Grill Flavor (from Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and Cottonseed Oil), Chicken Powder, Chicken Broth, Turmeric, Smoke Flavor, Annatto Extract and Artificial Flavors, Soybean Oil.

Taco Bell

Taco Bell’s website didn’t have much emphasis on health. Under the nutrition guide, at the bottom, was a link to Keep it Balanced, a token nod to health. It had no serious information on how to really eat healthy. They recommend foods like pizza and tacos (no surprise) because they may include ingredients from several food groups at once. Including several food groups does not necessarily mean it’s a healthy food.
 
The seasoned beef, carne asada steak, spicy shredded chicken and even the rice all include autolyzed yeast extract (hidden MSG). Disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate are flavor enhancers used in synergy with MSG. Therefore, menu items with disodium inosinate and/or disodium guanylate also contain MSG. This includes the avocado ranch dressing, southwest chicken, citrus salsa, creamy jalapeno sauce, creamy lime sauce, lime seasoned red strips, pepper jack sauce and seasoned rice. 
 
According to Wikipedia, dimethylpolysiloxane is optically clear, and is generally considered to be inert, non-toxic, and non-flammable. It is used in silicone caulk, adhesives and as an anti-foaming agent. Appetizingly enough, it’s also included in Taco Bell’s rice. 

Wendy’s

At Wendy’s, there are several tempting salads. The mandarin chicken salad seems healthy at first glance. It has diced chicken, mandarin oranges, almonds, crispy noodles, your choice of dressings and five different varieties of lettuce. Then reality takes a bite when you check the ingredients list. The almonds are roasted and salted. The crispy noodles are not whole grain. The mandarin orange segments are not freshly peeled oranges; most likely canned. The diced chicken has added autolyzed yeast extract (MSG), disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, sodium phosphates (soap?), salt, more salt, sugar, modified cornstarch and the universal umbrella ingredient list: spices, natural flavors and artificial flavors.

In the ingredients lists for the salad dressings, one surprise was titanium dioxide in the Low Fat Honey Mustard Dressing and the Reduced Fat Creamy Ranch Dressing. It’s a very versatile chemical. It can be used to manufacture paint, sunscreen, semiconductors and food coloring.

Wendy’s Southwest Taco Salad is a salad with Wendy’s chili. Once again, the chili has hidden MSG: autolyzed yeast extracts, spices, artificial flavors, natural flavorings, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate (MSG give-aways). It’s puzzling to try to understand why their chili would need to include an anti-caking agent such as silicon dioxide, also known as sand or glass powder.

See if you can spot the sunscreen, MSG and soap in this Wendy’s ingredient:

Seasoned Tortilla Strips
Whole Corn, Vegetable Oil (contains one or more of the following: corn, soybean or sunflower oil), Salt, Buttermilk Solids, Spices, Tomato, Sweet Cream, Dextrose, Onion, Sugar, Cheddar Cheese (cultured milk, salt, enzymes), Corn Starch, Modified Corn Starch, Maltodextrin, Nonfat Dry Milk, Garlic, Torula Yeast, Citric Acid, Autolyzed Yeast, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Artificial Colors (including extractives of paprika, turmeric and annatto, titanium dioxide, red 40, yellow 5, blue 1), Disodium Phosphate, Lactic Acid, Soy Lecithin. CONTAINS: MILK.
 
Subway

If a sandwich is advertised as healthy, one would expect that the bread would be whole grain. Not so with Subway’s wheat bread. While it does have some whole wheat flour, it’s the third ingredient, listed just before high fructose corn syrup. None of Subway’s breads are whole grain. Ammonium sulfate (a fertilizer) is also added. The bread also contains azodicarbonamide. From Wikipedia, 

Use of azodicarbonamide as a food additive is banned in Australia. In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive has identified azodicarbonamide as a respiratory sensitizer (a possible cause of asthma) and determined that products should be labeled with May cause sensitization by inhalation.

Most of the meats at Subway contain MSG and/or sodium nitrite. 

You have to wonder how Jarred lost weight eating Subway.

KFC

The chicken, the gravy and even the rice all have monosodium glutamate added. Not surprisingly, the chicken in the salads also has MSG. For a healthy menu item, the House Side Salad without dressing has nothing more than iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce and tomatoes. 
 
KFC claims 0g trans-fat per serving for all their fried chicken, but the Extra Crispy Chicken, Colonel’s Crispy Strips, HBBQ Wings, Boneless HBBQ Wings, Fiery Buffalo Wings and more have partially hydrogenated soybean oil listed in the ingredients. So, if the trans-fat content is below 0.5g per serving, they can round down to zero and claim zero grams per serving. 

It is clear that if you want to be healthy, you can’t eat restaurant food or grocery store food.

No one can change overnight to break the bad food eating habits, but if you just change one thing at a time, you can have less disease and spend a lot less money on doctors, drug bills and insurance.
