[2010 Aug] Modern medicine's biggest lie claims lives by JULIAN WHITAKER, MD  Angioplasty, bypass and other invasive heart procedures do not and cannot prevent heart attacks or prolong lives in the vast majority of patients who have them.

Medical radiation, received even at very low and moderate doses, is an important cause of death from Ischemic Heart Disease; the probable mechanism is radiation-induction of mutations in the coronary arteries, resulting in dysfunctional clones (mini-tumors) of smooth muscle cells. http://www.ratical.org/radiation/CNR/RMP/

 In patients taking erythromycin along with other drugs that increase its concentration in the blood, the risk of cardiac death was more than five times greater, Ray and his colleagues found. That translates to six deaths for every 10,000 people taking erythromycin for the typical two weeks while on the other drugs. [Media September 9, 2004] Study links antibiotic use, heart attack

The heart muscle is very sensitive to alcohol poisonings. Such alcoholic cardiomyopathies frequently terminate in sudden death. The Aspartame molecule is an alcohol poison about 20,000 times as toxic a poison as ethanol, (regular old sipping or beverage alcohol) on a per weight basis. Moreover, the myocardium (heart muscle) never gets to rest except between heart beats, so the methanol from Aspartame that becomes more or progressively toxic upon metabolism is especially  damaging to muscles…….The heart's extreme mitochondrial concentration, and its dependence upon mitochondrial metabolism for its unresting labors make it a site intensely generative of Aspartame's poisonous byproducts and extremely subject to their resultant chemical, immune, mitochondrial and CHz damages. EPIDEMIC of SUDDEN DEATHS in those EXPOSED TO ASPARTAME By James Bowen, M.D.

SAP entering through the right, passing through the heart to the left back is the executive stress position and is extremely uncomfortable. The heart has a peculiar heartbeat associated with that position and I suspect that many pacemakers and things are fitted as a result of an incorrect position of the SAP. Jon Whale interview on Stationary Assemblage Point (SAP)

By feeding experiments with animals and human beings consuming nearly a quarter million dollars in labor and materials over a period of seven years I finally determined that the true cause of arteriosclerosis is simple: STALE FOOD. ROBERT S. FORD

Dehydration and high blood pressure (see: Water cure)
A little over a year ago, we found my husband had high blood pressure. The initial response was for him to take Hyzaar. Mike, after finding information you had on your web site about water and hypertension being a result of constantly being dehydrated the house lights went on for me as my Mike, just does not drink water, or very many fluids at all. After much nagging and finally resorting to bribery (he’s allowed to spend the money we used to spend on Hyzaar for further restoration of his 1958 Chevy Apache) I did get him to finally start drinking water – lots of it! I am happy to report that he no longer takes medication and his blood pressure is NORMAL! Very Happy He would regularly be over 140/90 and now stays in the 120/80 range. We still find that if he has a day that he just doesn't drink enough water; the blood pressure will want to creap up over the 120/80 – like 135/87 – drink water – down it comes again.

Heart Bypass (conventional medicine)

The three-year survival rate for bypass surgery is almost exactly the same as if no surgery was undertaken The Veterans Administration Coronary Artery Bypass Co-operative Study Group, "Eleven-year survival in the Veterans Administration randomized trial of coronary bypass surgery for stable angina", New Eng. J. Med. 311:1333-1339 (1984); Coronary Artery Surgery Study (CASS), "A randomized trial of coronary artery bypass surgery: quality of life in patients randomly assigned to treatment groups", Circulation 68(5):951-960 (1983) Our Deadly Diabetes Deception by Thomas Smith

A lot of my writings have been about misinformation in terms of bypass surgery and other types of operations. I went into medicine with the idea that I was going to save all these lives with all the tricks and tools that medical doctors learn. And what I found was that very few of my patients got well. That I often did harm to them. This was quite disturbing to me as a young doctor. But what was even more disturbing to me was to find out that this failure had been fairly well documented in the scientific literature. Now that literature sits on the library shelf, because it doesn't fit into anybody's advertising campaign. Interview with John McDougall, M.D.

In the 1970s and 1980s, three major studies were published on the effects of coronary bypass surgery, and they are the only studies published to date.  None of them demonstrated a significantly higher survival rate for the group that had bypass surgery versus those who did not. Even the angiogram that supposedly diagnoses people who “need” bypass surgery is virtually worthless, as attested to by all the studies published to date. Even though the diagnosis and treatment are worthless, the coronary bypass business is among earth’s most lucrative, raking in more than $50 billion per year in America.  When Dr. Henry McIntosh at the Baylor College of Medicine, where the first bypass surgery was performed, published an assessment of the first ten years of bypass surgery results, he stated that there were virtually no measurable benefits from bypass surgery.  Soon after publishing his paper, he was forced to leave Baylor. His is not an unusual fate.  People with private insurance are 80% more likely to have an angiogram than a Medicaid (welfare) patient, and are 40% more likely to have bypass surgery.  In his book, Heart Frauds, after Charles T. McGee, M.D. exposes the scam that American medicine is regarding artery and heart disease, he then recommends what people should do to prevent those diseases.  His advice is almost all about eating live food, just as in Stale Food vs. Fresh Food.  Fortunately, his book has not yet been banned.  —Wade Frazier

A large part of this medical disaster that the United States currently experiences is due to the way our medical community is organized. Basically it is not organized to heal and to cure disease; the medical community, particularly at its upper levels, is a commercial venture organized to make money for its practitioners.   The Cardiac surgeon, for example, does nothing whatsoever to cure cardiac disease. Three to five percent of the heart surgery patients die on the operating table. Cardiac surgery provides no better three year survival rate than no treatment at all. A Harvard survival study of 200,000 patients revealed that the long term survival rate of patients subjected to surgery was no better than the survival rate of those that had no surgery. GANGSTERS IN MEDICINE By Thomas Smith

"Looking back I was like a log being tossed into the flume and headed for the sawmill. Once you are in the chute, there are people all along the way to keep you in the flume until the saw slices you open and shoots you out the other side. The sawmill is called bypass surgery."—Don Williams

The first complete study of bypass effectiveness was the Veterans Administration Cooperative Study [15]. Between 286 patients who received bypass surgery and 310 who did not, the survival rate at the end of 3 years was 88% for the bypass group and 87% for the control group. In an 8-year follow-up to a second VACS study [16] among 181 low-risk patients, the bypass group had a much higher cumulative mortality rate (31.2%) compared to the non-surgery group (16.8%). This was among a group of low-risk patients to begin with.
    A Rand study [17] revealed that nearly 50% of bypass operations are unnecessary. Whitaker [18] notes that the number of bypass surgeries since this Rand study, which should have plummeted, has increased by more than 50%. While the death rate from heart disease declined from 355 per 100,000 in 1950 to 289 per 100,000 in 1990, the amount of bypass operations jumped from 21,000 in 1971 to 407,000 in 1991, a increase of more than 1,838%. [19] Whitaker states that laypersons are quick to attribute increases in life expectancy to surgery, but the credit clearly belongs to greater exercise and healthier diets.100 Years of Medical Robbery by Dale Steinreich

"In America, each year, 61 in every 100,000 people have a coronary bypass operation. In Britain only 6 in every 100,000 have the same operation. In Japan 1 in 100,000 patients will have a coronary bypass operation. In America and Denmark 7 out of 10 women will have a hysterectomy at some stage in their lives, but in Britain only 2 women in 10 will have the same operation. Why? Are women in America having too many hysterectomies or are women in Britain having too few? In America one in five babies are born by Caesarean delivery. In England and Wales the figure is 9%. In Japan it is 8%."—-Dr Vernon Coleman

"Each year nearly 300,000 bypass surgeries and 250,000 angioplasties are performed in the United States. Furthermore, nearly twenty thousand deaths occur each year as a result of these procedures. In 1992, Nortin Hadler, MD, professor of Medicine at North Carolina School of Medicine, wrote that none of the 250,000 angioplasties performed the previous year could be justified and that only 3-5% of the 300,000 coronary artery bypass surgeries done the same year were actually indicated. Yet a cost comparison study prepared for the Great Lakes Association of Clinical Medicine in 1993 estimated that $10 billion was spent in 1991 on bypass surgery alone. We also know that there is as much as a 15% mortality rate for people over the age of 65 within the first year of the coronary surgery and an 85% reocclusion rate within the first sixteen months after the operation. This is a highly deadly operation that ultimately doesn't work that is very costly. Yet is it the most common surgery in America. This is more than a double standard; it is a completely separate medical ideology supported by the monies for those who practice it. It's time to consider that neither of these procedures do nothing to change the biochemistry behind the arterial degeneration nor do they even consider changes in lifestyle and nutrition to prevent further insult to the vessels. EDTA chelation therapy has brought relief to more than 93% of patients suffering from ischemic heart disease and it can help avoid bypass surgery in 85% of cases.30 When it is given according to established protocols not one serious side effect has been reported. In fact, thousands of anecdotal stories from patients and physicians support the effectiveness and safety of this relatively inexpensive treatment."—Gary Null http://www.garynull.com

"Bypass surgery, angioplasty, and even diagnostic angiograms are so over used that, in my opinion, it constitutes criminal behaviour by the cardiologists and surgeons involved. Well controlled scientific studies have shown bypass surgery simply doesn't work, except to relieve severe chest pain. Those who have the surgery didn't even have a trend of longevity benefit compared to those treated without it. Yet, each year hundreds of thousands cave into the obvious fear tactics used by agressive heart doctors and submit to the bypass operation"—Julian Whitaker, M.D.

"Even JAMA has said that 44% of bypass surgeries are of questionable necessity. In reality the number of unnecessary heart surgeries is far higher….The scientific evidence damning most (though not all) heart surgery is overwhelming……Up to 4% die (from the operation)…up to 5% may sustain long-lasting or permanent cerebral damage."—Julian Whitaker, M.D.

Nortin Hadler says he would sue any doctor who tried to test his cholesterol. Likewise, his bone density, prostate levels, colon cells, etc. The Harvard-trained doc, now in his sixties and a rheumatologist and professor of medicine and microbiology/immunology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, says you, too, should avoid these routine tests, as well as most angioplasties, bypass surgeries and routine mammograms. That's because — contrary to what the medical establishment tells you — the tests and procedures don't extend most lives, he says; they just convince healthy people they're sick. Skip These Tests?

"The heart surgery industry is booming. According to American Heart Association statistics, in 1995 1,460,000 angiograms (the diagnostic procedure that starts the ball rolling) were performed at an average cost of $10,880 per procedure. This resulted in 573,000 bypass surgeries at $44,820 a shot, and 419,000 angioplasties (the balloon procedure for opening up arteries) at $20,370 each. The total bill for these procedures is over $50 billion a year.
        There is no scientific justification for the use of angiography, balloon angioplasty and bypass surgery to treat most cardiovascular disease. Several studies over the past two decades, involving over 6,000 patients with heart disease, have shown that patients funneled into surgical procedures do significantly worse than those treated with noninvasive techniques. “Noninvasive” refers to the use of medication, but not diet, exercise and multiple vitamin supplements, which can be quite beneficial.”
        "Other than their cost, the only thing definitely known about these procedures is that they do kill people. Roughly one in 25 patients having a bypass and about one in 65 undergoing angioplasty die from the procedure. Frankly, if we took all of the bypass surgeons and catheter-pushing cardiologists, tied their thumbs together and locked them in a closet, we would save close to 30,000 lives and over $50 billion ever year."   [Julian Whitaker, M.D., Health & Healing, Sep 98, Vol 8, No. 9]

Heart Frauds: Uncovering the Biggest Health Scam in History
(Paperback) by Charles T., M.D. McGee

Book Description
Did you know that…

*The angiogram used for recommending procedures on the heart is highly inaccurate and that most angiograms are not necessary.
*There is no evidence that coronary bypass surgery or balloon angioplasties extend life, yet over 600,000 of these procedures are being done each year.
*Blood cholesterol levels are ineffective in determining heart attack risk and much more accurate measurements exist but are seldom used.
*Cholesterol-lowering drugs do not extend life, but may actually increase the overall death rate.
*The primary focus in the medical industry is to make a profit and, therefore, much of the advice and treatment we receive is not in our best interest.
*We pay an estimated $45 billion per year on preventive and treatment measures for heart disease that don't work.
*Obstructions in coronary arteries can open up with diet and lifestyle changes alone, but because of financial incentives doctors prefer sending patients into surgery.
*Conventional treatment for heart disease often does not work but safe, inexpensive methods are available that do work.

If your doctor recommends getting an angiogram, coronary bypass surgery, balloon angioplasty, or taking cholesterol-lowering drugs your best course of action may be to run out the door. For most people these procedures/treatments are not effective and are completely unnecessary. The most popular medical procedures are the most profitable for the health care industry but are often the least effective. Hundreds of thousands of people each year are deceived in undergoing expensive medical treatments that do no good and may even do a great deal of harm. Highly effective procedures that are low-risk and inexpensive are ignored or even ridiculed. Recommending expensive, high-risk procedures over the cheaper, more effective ones amounts to nothing more than fraud. If you had the choice of going through a risky $20,000 surgical procedure or simply taking a daily vitamin supplement which one would you choose? Most patients aren't given the choice.

These facts, and more, led Charles T. McGee, M.D. to write this hard hitting, expose of the health care system. In it you will learn which procedures and treatments to avoid and which ones offer the most hope. If you are concerned about heart disease, and everyone should be, you need to read this book!

Chelation therapy

"We can't put these chelation doctors out of business without your help."—FDA administrator Dr Stuart Nightingale in a speech to the AMA House of Delagates, Honolulu, 1984.

"Chelation has been used safely over 6 million times in over 400,000 patients in the US alone. Its success rate in improving blood flow in patients with clogged arteries is close to 82%."—Elmer Cranton, author of Bypassing Bypass.

Nutritional medicine

"Now I've got to the point where I think we can get almost complete control of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes. [The proper therapy] can prevent cardiovascular disease and even cure it." –Linus Pauling. 

One day I was consulted by a young man who had cardiomyopathy – a degenerative disease of the heart muscle which, when severe, usually means that a heart transplant is the only hope for survival. He had been through the usual procedures, was obviously extremely ill and was on the waiting list for a suitable donor heart.
   I had read somewhere about an 'epidemic' of a particular form of cardiomyopathy in China where it was found that selenium supplements resulted in cures. I had also read about another form of this disease in New Zealand, occurring in sheep that were deficient in various trace elements. Therefore, I decided to try a broad mixture of various vitamins and minerals – Vitamin C, Vitamin E, B-Group Vitamins, Zinc, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium and cod-liver oil. The patient stopped smoking, began to eat 'good' food and with the cooperation of his wife lead a good life-style. Slowly, at first, he began to improve, then this became obvious to an extent where the heart was functioning at 80% of normal. Eventually he was able to lead a normal life – working and without any apparent heart problems.
          Naturally, I was curious and pleased. So when I was confronted by an elderly gentleman with severe cardiomyopathy of rapid onset I decided to 'give him the works'. His heart, on the X-Ray was enormous and there was an extreme degree of cardiac failure. Response was dramatic. By the time he saw a specialist in Sydney a few weeks later his heart was of normal size and all was well.
         Now two cases do not represent much of a statistical study and there are many forms, therefore causes, of cardiomyopathy but it was obvious to me that I had come across something of enormous importance. Naturally, I tried to interest the cardiologists but this was a total waste of time. They had seen my patients, they could not offer an explanation for the 'cures' but their attitude remained hostile.
     During the next few years I treated several more patients with similar dramatic responses. No doubt, if I saw more patients I would eventually come across some where causes were different and results would, therefore, not be good but it so happened that I never had a failure. To this day, unfortunately, my colleagues remain entrenched in scepticism."—Medical Pioneer of the 20th century p393

As you know, even though we have the First Amendment in the Constitution, the FDA has negated the First Amendment when it comes to free speech in health care ever since about the ‘40s and ‘50s. That’s why if you pick up your bottle of vitamins in your local natural food store, let’s say you pick up a bottle of Vitamin E or something, all it says is “supports cardiovascular health.” Because if they were to put on there that Vitamin E has been found in this scientific study over here to cut the rate of heart attacks by this percent, even though the research is true, they could be hauled up by the FDA on the grounds of making an unapproved claim. The FDA doesn’t care whether it’s true or not, they just care whether they’ve approved it.

And so, fish oil, for example. Everybody knows, and all the major medical journals have published it in the last two years, that taking enough fish oil every day cuts your risk of sudden cardiac death by 50 percent or more, and yet if anybody put that on a label of a fish oil bottle, they would be out of business tomorrow, I guarantee it.

……….here’s another little inside truth, not secret, but truth. It gets printed every once in a while and I’ve seen it online. In the mid 1990s, at someone’s cardiology convention, the Annual Convention of the American College of Cardiologists or something, one of the speakers asked that particular audience, “How many of you recommend Vitamin E to your patients?” And approximately 25 to 30 percent of the doctors there raised their hands—remember this is conventional, that’s pretty good. And, “How many of you take Vitamin E yourself?” Better than half of the room raised their hands!

…………Here’s a research article from Finland, or from Scandinavia anyway, it might have been Finland. A whole bunch of kids, starting at age one, were started on 2000 units (and we’re told by the FDA that’s going to kill them if they’re one year old) of Vitamin D, and that was maintained for a few years, and there’s a control group that didn’t get any Vitamin D. And when they finally looked at all the statistics, the number of new cases of type-1 diabetes—juvenile diabetes—had been reduced by 80 percent! An exclusive interview with pioneering physician Dr. Jonathan Wright

"In the 1950s the Schute brothers in Ontario did some amazing work with vitamin E. Their claims were simple. They said vitamin E worked against heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. They were greeted with laughter. A couple of years ago, the Harvard School of Public Health published a huge study on vitamin E and showed that just 100 units of vitamin E per day decreased the death rate by 40 percent. Suppose they had done that in 1960? How many Americans would have been saved in the intervening 35 years had Harvard taken a responsible position and said, "We are skeptical of these claims but let's look at them"? But they wouldn't do that–it didn't fit their paradigm. So vitamin E was totally destroyed by the establishment. Think of the cost of those decisions."–Linus Pauling Interview by Peter Chowka

"Pharmaceutical companies are very annoyed with niacin because their products have to compete with it. Some of their cholesterol-lowering drugs cost up to $150 a month while niacin costs about $10." —–Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD  1997 Interview by Peter Barry Chowka.

Selenium has been shown to be protective against heart disease by animal studies, epidemiological studies, lab animal studies, and human clinical studies. Selenium helps in maintaining the integrity of heart and artery tissue, regulation of blood pressure, regulation of blood clotting, and the reduction of plaque or cholestrol deposits in arteries. 

"According to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (1977) there have been more than 50 studies, in nine countries, that have indicated an inverse relationship between water hardness and mortality from cardiovascular disease. That is, people who drink water that is deficient in magnesium and calcium generally appear more susceptible to this disease. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences has estimated that a nation-wide initiative to add calcium and magnesium to soft water might reduce the annual cardiovascular death rate by 150,000 in the United States."— Groundwater and Human Health, Groundwater Resources of British Columbia, British Columbia Ministry of the Environment.

Dr. Brian Leibovitz, Ph.D., editorialized in a recent issue of the Journal of Optimum Nutrition that magnesium: "is now recognized as a first-line medicine for the treatment of heart attacks. A study published in The Lancet, for example, reported the effects of a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study in 2,316 patients with suspected myocardial infarction. The dose of magnesium was high (about 8.7 grams given intravenously over a 24 hour period), but the results were remarkable: magnesium reduced cardiovascular mortality by 25 percent. The author's conclusion: "

Furthermore, according to Dr. Rath, significant documentation attests that:

"Vitamins belong to the most powerful agents in the fight against heart disease. This fact has been established by studies of thousands of people over many years. Here are some important results of recent clinical studies:

Vitamin C cuts heart disease rate almost in half (documented in 11,000 Americans over ten years) Vitamin E cuts heart disease rate by more than one third (documented in 36,000 Americans over six years.) Beta Carotene (provitamin A) cuts heart disease rate almost in half (documented in 36,000 Americans).

No prescription drug has ever been shown to help prevent heart disease similar [vitaminsA, C and E]. These results and those of countless other studies are so clear that anybody questioning the value of vitamins in the prevention of heart disease may safely be considered as uninformed."  Dr Rath http://www.drrath.com/  http://www.dr-rath-research.org/home/index.php

Herbal medicine

"Cayenne is most effective for heart and blood circulation problems, and for angina pectoris, palpitations, and cardiac arrhythmias. It's a miracle for congestive heart failure. It is a specific for anyone who has any type of circulatory problems, such as high or low blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, triglycerides and fats, even varicose veins."—–Dick Shulze.

"One of my readers was scheduled for surgery to have his veins scraped out. Within days, cayenne pepper saved him and the operation wasn’t needed!"—Sam Biser.

"I discovered the study in 1988 showing that if people who were really sick, for instance in the coronary care unit, were prayed for unknown to them, they got better — according to a randomized, controlled, prospective, matched double blind study. I went to the [scientific] literature. If you do this, you may be shocked at what you can find. There are as many as 150 studies showing, statistically speaking, that there is an effect of distant intercessory prayer. Peter Barry Chowka's Interview with Larry Dossey, M.D.

High blood pressure or hypertension has been found to be largely a function of the mind. However, conventional medicine has ignored this for years, and has a large volume of confusing and misleading research to the opposite. Rather, than admit the cause, the medical establishment has labelled the largest percentage of hypertension cases as "essential" or "idiopathic" which are labels to cover up that they don’t know (or refuse to recognize) the cause of the high blood pressure.

"I routinely see reversal of underlying cardiovascular disease without the risk of expensive surgery."—J Frackelton, M.D.

"The last case but two I should like to discuss in greater detail: a dentist had been suffering from a very bad heart condition for as long as 17 years. A doctor advised him to undergo an expensive heart operation that would cost over £16,000, and without any guarantee of success. It was a good thing that the dentist had been unable to make up his mind whether to go in for this operation or not. Three weeks after moving his bed away from the crossing of interference zones he was already 50% better, so I learnt from a letter he sent me."–Kathe Bachler

"There is no doubt in my mind that the widespread use of the new insecticides is implicated in the alarming rise in the incidence of deaths from heart attacks and other forms of vascular disease, especially in relatively young persons.   That exposure to the newer insecticides actually causes a rise in blood  cholesteral in human beings, both Dr. F. M. Pottenger, Jr. in California and I have repeatedly observed. Dr. Pottenger informs me that the general level of blood cholesterol in his patients in 1950 is much higher than in 1945. He has seen variants of the syndrome I have described in about one third of his patients.   In addition to this effect DDT is known to increase the excitability of the heart muscle in animals, and it causes disturbances in heart rate and blood  pressure in man, effects we have repeatedly observed. The combination of a  narrowed coronary artery and the latter effects make DDT even more potentially disastrous."   Morton S. Biskind, M.D.—Presented before the Select Committee to Investiate the Use of Chemicals in Food Products, United States House of Representatives, U.S.  December 12, 1950
