Man Boobs, Muffin Tops and Bagel Bumps
Muffin tops, man boobs, and bagel bumps: These are among the varied and perverse ways that the hormonal distortions inflicted on unwitting humans who consume the seeds of grasses, i.e., grains, show themselves. In our modern world filled with thousands of processed foods, there are plenty of landmines for health. Gummy bears and gumdrops will rot teeth, for instance. Indulge in a handful of dried prunes and you’ll have to schedule a substantial portion of your day on the toilet due to bowel irritants. But only wheat and grains are associated with a wide swath of health problems that range from autoimmune disease to m...

Is wheat really THAT bad?
Because it has become such a frequent item in everyday meals, suggesting that something so commonplace must be fine, people often ask: Is wheat really that bad? Let’s therefore catalog the health conditions that are associated with wheat consumption. Health conditions we know with 100% certainty are caused by consumption of wheat and related grains: Celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, cerebellar ataxia, “idiopathic” peripheral neuropathy, temporal lobe seizures, gluten encephalopathy, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune hepatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis, tooth decay Health conditions ...

The REAL Story Behind Man Breasts (And How to Get Rid of Them)
Abnormal breast enlargement in a male, gynecomastia, is a common sign of distorted hormonal status triggered by visceral fat, i.e., inflammatory fat housed in the abdomen that converts a male’s testosterone to estrogen. “Love handles” therefore nearly always accompany man breasts. In addition, consumption of wheat and related grains yields something called the A5 pentapeptide that provokes hypothalamic release of prolactin: pro-lactation, i.e., it prepares the breast for breast feeding. These are vivid illustrations of just how far wrong the American diet has gone. It is caused by diet, it can be revers...

The OTHER 99%: It’s not just about celiac disease
I want to take this issue head on, since popular “wisdom” is that problems with consumption of wheat and related grains begin and end with celiac disease. The Wheat Lobby, for instance, frequently argues that, if you do not have celiac disease, you have no business avoiding wheat and related grains. Defenders of wheat, such as those cited in this New York Times article, argue that celiac disease affects 1% of the human population, but that the other 99% of people not only can consume wheat with impunity, but can actually do so and obtain health benefits due to fiber and B vitamin content. They say that eliminat...

Shop Amazon with our link Herbal Essences has a new owner I have Herbal Essences on my mind because I just saw the news that Proctor and Gamble are selling the brand to Coty.

Advantages of eplerenone compared to spironolactone include all of the following except: a) Lower progestational effect b) Lower anti androgenic effect c) Lower chance of gynecomastia d) Lower chance of hyperkalemia Correct answer: d) Lower chance of hyperkalemia Eplerenone has more specific effect on aldosterone receptors rather than other steroid hormone receptors.

Johnson and Johnson Continues to Pay For Risperdal
In August of 2012, Johnson & Johnson paid a $181 million multi-state consumer protection settlement to resolve charges that the company marketed its antipsychotic drug Risperdal for off-label uses. In November of 2013, J&J paid $2.2 billion to resolve False Claims Act allegations related to misbranding of a number of drugs, including Risperdal. In the past month, the company faced two further blows related to Risperdal. A Philadelphia jury awarded $2.5 million to the plaintiff over J&J’s “failure to warn” about Risperdal side effects. This was the first such case to be heard by a jury, though ...

The problem with the way occupational therapists address mental health issues
This report also states that mental health expenditures may not be keeping pace with the growth of health care spending in general, and that proportionally there has been a shift over time where more money is being spent on pharmaceuticals and less is being spent on inpatient care.  As a final point,"Three out of every ten dollars spent on MH treatment are expected to go for retail purchases of prescription drugs in 2014, up from 23 percent in 2003. Specialty and general hospitals are forecasted to account for 22 percent of total MH expenditures (down from 28 percent in 2003), physicians and other professionals f...

Anabolic Steroids like Trenbolone
In the last few decades, the focus of a big majority of athletes has shifted towards performance enhancing drugs such as anabolic steroids. The fact that these bodybuilding steroids or anabolic androgenic steroids can dramatically improve the level of on-field performance, strength, muscle mass, and endurance means that there is every reason that athletes admire these drugs. Different athletes make use of different anabolic steroids for a wide range of purposes. While some use steroids to run faster and become more agile than ever, some use these potent drugs to hit harder and stay ahead of the competition, while others us...

Researchers Back Pedal From Their Own Risperdal Study
In the wake of the $2.2 billion settlement by Johnson & Johnson to resolve criminal and civil charges for illegal marketing of the Risperdal antipsychotic pill (more here), two of the authors of a medical paper that was used to inappropriately market the medicine are back peddling from the publication, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. Denis Daneman, a professor and chair of pediatrics at the University of Toronto, asked The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, which published the article a decade ago, to retract the article or remove his name.

Lawyer Spars With FDA Over J&J Risperdal Court Documents
In an unusual tactic, an attorney is prodding the FDA to seek documents that purportedly detail side effects caused by the Risperdal antipsychotic, but cannot be released publicly due to a court order. The documents were sealed by a Philadelphia judge as part of ongoing litigation over claims the Johnson & Johnson drug causes gynecomastia, which is the abnormal development of breasts in males (back story). For the past year, Stephen Sheller has attempted to convince the FDA that the documents should be disclosed and, initially, filed a Citizen’s Petition, which also asks the agency to require a so-called Black Bo...
