Larry King Live on Prostate Cancer Screening (PSA)
Show Sets a New Standard for Disease Mongering

Friday, August 21, 2009, the CNN television show, Larry King Live, turned thousands of otherwise healthy men into patients and caused them irreparable harm when in-studio guests John McEnroe, Michael Milken, and Dr. Christopher Rose recommended that all men over the age of 40 years undergo PSA examinations in order to find prostate cancer.  (This show can also be found free on iTunes as a podcast and as a transcript.)  I know Larry King personally. I was a guest on his national radio show 3 times in the distant past. He is an honest man, but I believe he was duped into selling for the prostate cancer businesses at the expense of men’s health on this particular evening.


Report on the July 2009 Costa Rica Adventure

This was our 11th McDougall Adventure trip to the Guanacaste Area of Costa Rica—a region in the northwest of this ecologically preserved country.  The major improvement in this past trip over the previous 10 was a change in hotels.  We moved our operation to the Hilton Papagayo Hotel. This is a first class resort and made an important difference in our guests’ comfort and happiness.  There were a variety of dining rooms we were able to use. We had all of our breakfasts in the Papagayo rooms, which were enclosed and comfortable.  Most of our lunches were served buffet-style in the large La Cosecha room. Lunch was served twice buffet-style in the open-air Grill del Fuego, looking over the beach.  We had two dinners in the formal dining room called the El Dorado. Dinner was served in the amphitheater the evening the children danced for us.
