Four More Health and Medical Considerations for Your Financial Future

The most important message I repeat at my 10-Day Live-In Program in Santa Rosa, California is, “Your goal is to get out of the medical businesses. And the only way to accomplish this safely is to be healthy. And the only way to be healthy is to eat properly, exercise, and practice clean habits.”  I would like to add to this, “You must be a productive member of society to survive in times of economic downturn. Your usefulness depends directly upon your health.”

Patients Commonly Receive Misinformation on Osteoporosis Treatments

The ‘By the Way Doctor’ column in the February 2008 Harvard Health Letter ran questions from readers regarding the safety of the osteoporosis bisphosphonate drugs, such as Fosamax, Actonel, and Boniva. Dr. Anthony Komaroff M.D., Editor in Chief, responded to patient concerns about long term use and the risk of the side-effect of bone necrosis or bone death – particularly in the jaw. One of the correspondents had been taking Fosamax for 11 years. Bisphosphonates are now the first choice for treating and preventing osteoporosis and are widely prescribed worldwide to women and men who have low bone density and fear fragility fracture later in life.

Readers’ Comments on Bill Clinton’s Madness 

The following are readers’ comments on my article sent April 12, 2008—Breaking News: Bill Clinton’s Madness: A Consequence of Heart-bypass Surgery Brain Damage.  This article has received worldwide attention through the powers of the Internet. So far I have received no serious objections to my claim that bypass surgery has caused our former president an obvious decline in his mental and emotional functions.  I wrote this article because of sincere concern for the Clintons and because brain damage from bypass surgery needs to be brought to the public’s attention.  My intentions were not politically motivated. As a result of this article there has been talk of enacting informed consent laws forcing physicians to disclose this expected effect.
