BMI (Body Mass Indicator) is a Tool of the Medical Corporatocracy

Thursday, January 4, 2018 17:29 No Comments

I’m surprised when I see libertarian-ish types uphold the Body Mass Index (BMI), a very controversial health indicator, as an “accurate estimator of health status and disease risk” (said one blogger). BMI was a simplistic tool that evolved as insurance actuaries tried to understand the relationship between increasing weight/obesity of policyholders and mortality. It was [...]

Disassembling a Vaccination Spin From the MSM

Sunday, February 5, 2017 12:31 No Comments

From Jeremy R. Hammond, a journalist who picks apart propaganda about as good as anyone out there. He completely takes apart an awful spin piece from The Atlantic propagandizing for the US government, the CDC, and Vaccination Nation. To quote: As former CDC Director Julie Gerberding was consequently forced to acknowledge, “Now, we all know that vaccines [...]

She Worked Herself Out of a Job

Saturday, April 9, 2016 6:03 No Comments

A socialist policy wonk dies by the blade of her own sword. It’s not surprising given the obvious horridness of socialized medicine. What I find striking is what you see a lot of in socialist European countries: the absolute decrepit and disgusting condition of her teeth in spite of living in a wealthy, 1st-world, western [...]

The “Real” Nutrition Pros

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 21:32 1 Comment

This yahoo (no pun intended) claims to be a “real nutrition pro,” meaning that in order to be “real” you had to have followed the tediously conventional path as determined by the government and assorted special interests that profit handsomely from (1) their monopoly on information and certification (2) interminable sickness/disease, and (2) medical-pharmaceutical dependency [...]

I’ve often linked Chris Masterjohn on this website over the years. Chris runs The Daily Lipid and Cholesterol and Health. This snippet is from the Cholesterol and Health website: According to Michael Brown and Joseph Goldstein, winners of the Nobel Prize in 1985 for their discovery of the receptor that brings cholesterol into cells, the [...]

The Government Wants to Know Your Bad Habits

Friday, November 23, 2012 19:06 1 Comment

They want to know about your alcohol, drug, and “other illicit substance” habits. And they’ll bribe you with a whopping $30 to get the information under the pretense of a “national study on health-related issues.” Thanks to Travis Holte for the link.

A Caveman Still Taking on the Dinosaurs

Thursday, October 11, 2012 20:16 No Comments

I’ve blogged before about the Diabetes Warrior, Steve Cooksey, a paleo blogger who has been under attack from the Nutrition Nazis in North Carolina for daring to write about food choices and health matters on his own blog without the appropriate government “license.” Journalist Sara Burrows reports: A federal judge has thrown out Paleo-diet blogger [...]

CDC on Hepatitis C Hysteria

Sunday, August 19, 2012 19:31 No Comments

Another CDC hysteria alert. So, the CDC is now recommending one-time testing for hepatitis C for everyone in the country born between 1945 and 1965, he said. All those who test positive for the virus should receive a brief alcohol screening and intervention and be referred to appropriate care and treatment services. Alcohol use has [...]

The CDC and the Swine Flu Pandemic, Part 285

Monday, August 6, 2012 21:29 2 Comments

It’s that time, again, to start putting the flu season on everyone’s radar map. The CDC has announced a new vaccine for a new swine flu. “This virus is still principally a swine virus, but it doesn’t seem to have onward spread. It’s still not a human virus,” Dr. Joseph Bresee, from the CDC’s influenza [...]

Rejecting the Government’s Poison is Bad For Your Health

Sunday, August 5, 2012 7:24 1 Comment

It is said that parents are putting their children in danger by giving them bottled water that doesn’t contain the government’s fluoride. This article from Tuscon News Now (via Health Day News) is a product of the anti-bottled water brigade – that is, those who are unable to bear the notion that people may have other [...]
