Sale of controversial 'miracle' tonic results in dozens of charges

A B.C. man and an Alberta woman face dozens of Food and Drug Act charges related to the promotion of a so-called miracle tonic touted as capable of curing everything from AIDS to autism. The charges come after Health Canada spent years trying to crack down on the sale of sodium chlorite.

Up until the first half of the twentieth century, large-scale health disasters were mostly due to natural causes (earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, etc.) or infections (e.g., smallpox, influenza epidemics, cholera). But something peculiar happened as we entered the second half of the century: Health disasters due to natural causes became dwarfed by large-scale health disasters that are man-made. Here’s a list of the Six Worst U.S. Health Disasters of the Last 50 Years, mostly man-made phenomena that have exacted huge tolls: widespread disease, premature death, poorly managed (though nonetheless highly profitable fo...

"Nobel disease" is a term designed to describe whatever it is that drives some Nobel laureates to embrace pseudoscience or quackery later in their careers. One of its most prominent victims, Luc Montagnier, co-discoverer of the AIDS virus, recently demonstrated that he's still suffering from Nobel disease when he laid down a barrage of antivaccine pseudoscience in Paris earlier this month. The post The Nobel Disease strikes again: Luc Montagnier goes full antivax, with a little help from Henri Joyeux appeared first on RESPECTFUL INSOLENCE.

BY UWE REINHARDT In tribute to Uwe we are re-running this instant classic from THCB’s archives. Originally published on Jan 31, 2017. Everyone knows (or should know) that forcing a commercial health insurer to write for an individual a health insurance policy at a premium that falls short of the insurer’s best ex ante estimate of the cost of health care that individual will require is to force that insurer into what economists might call an unnatural act. Remarkably, countries that rely on competing private health insurers to operate their universal, national health insurance systems all do just that. They a...

In 2016 I found myself waiting at a Colorado doctor’s office with my 12-year-old son, hoping to qualify for a cannabis prescription for him. I had traveled a long way from mainstream medicine in ten years. As a West Point graduate, Army Medical Service Corps Junior Officer of the Year and Medical Intelligence Officer for NATO Peacekeeping Forces, none of those experiences adequately prepared me for the greatest medical challenge and controversy of our time. My toddler son had suffered a vaccine induced brain injury from the MMR vaccine in 2005. The Harvard trained physician I was meeting with had been practicing medi...

Anxiety is nothing to be afraid of because it can be mastered with the right tools. The following is a list of tricks on how to use your five senses to calm and overcome your anxiety. Pe...

  A major charge of ASHA Special Interest Group 9, Hearing and Hearing Disorders in Childhood, is providing its affiliates (both audiologists and speech-language pathologists) with up-to-date information and resources to help serve this population. The SIG 9 Coordinating Committee (on which I serve) wanted to find out what we need to share and how we can best share this information, so we recently surveyed ASHA members. This survey compared confidence levels, educational experiences and resources requested by SIG 9 affiliates with providers who aren’t part of our SIG. Working with the ASHA Research and Surveys t...
