Ten Lies Your Doctor Taught You

Lie #1: Prescription drugs will make you healthier.

Truth #1: Prescription drugs only mask symptoms. They do nothing to
correct the underlying biochemical causes of disease. Simultaneously,
most prescription drugs cause nutritional deficiencies which lead to
further progression of chronic disease.

Lie #2: You should actively treat the swelling of sprains, strains
and other injuries.

Truth #2: Swelling is your body's natural strategy for enhancing the
flow of blood and nutrients to the injured area. If drugs or hormones
are used to prevent swelling, the injured tissues won't heal correctly,
greatly increasing the likelihood of repeat injuries to the same area.

Lie #3: Mammograms prevent cancer.

Truth #3: Mammograms actually *cause* cancer. They dose the breast
tissues with harmful radiation. Even when they spot breast cancer
tumors, they aren't "preventing" breast cancer; they're merely
*detecting* breast cancer. True prevention requires changes in food
choice and lifestyle, not the use of imaging technology.

Lie #4: Vitamins give you "expensive urine."

Truth #4: The most expensive urine in the world is created by taking
multiple overpriced prescription drugs, not vitamins. With more than
40% of the U.S. population now on prescription drugs, the drug content
in human urine is now so high that trace amounts of antidepressant
drugs can be found in public water supplies. Compared to drugs,
vitamins are cheap prevention.

Lie #5: The sun will give you cancer.

Truth #5: The sun will *prevent* cancer due to the creation of
vitamin D by the skin. Most Americans (and Canadians and Europeans,
for that matter) are deficient in vitamin D. As a result, tumor cell
growth in the breast and prostate is unregulated. Sensible exposure to
natural sunlight generates cancer-preventing vitamin D... at no charge!
Sunburns are actually caused by nutritional deficiencies (lack of
antioxidants in the skin), not by sensible exposure to sunlight.

Lie #6: CT scans (CAT scans) are perfectly safe.

Truth #6: CT scans expose patients to 1000 times the radiation of
chest X-rays. Repeated exposure to CT scans raises a patient's
cumulative radiation to levels experienced by many hydrogen bomb
victims in Hiroshima. In addition, rigorous studies have concluded
that CT scans offer no medical benefit whatsoever.

Lie #7: The U.S. health care system is the best in the world.

Truth #7: The health of U.S. citizens is actually the worst of any
industrialized nation. We pay double, triple, and even quadruple the
price for prescription drugs as any other country. We also have the
highest rates of obesity, Alzheimer's, cancer and diabetes, plus the
highest health insurance costs in the world. The U.S. health care
system ("sick care system") is so bad that people are fleeing the
country to seek medical services in Asia. It's a trend called "medical
tourism," and it's flourishing.

Lie #8: All surgical procedures have been proven safe and effective.

Truth #8: There is currently NO requirement whatsoever that surgical
procedures must be either safe or effective in order to be practiced.
Hundreds of thousands of medically unnecessary surgical procedures are
performed each year in the U.S. alone, including hysterectomies and
prostate cancer surgeries.

Lie #9: You can get all the nutrition you need from three balanced
meals a day.

Truth #9: Today's foods are nutrient depleted, and they come from
depleted soils. Processed and manufactured foods would have to be
eaten at the rate of 10,000 calories a day just to meet minimum RDA
requirements for basic nutrition. The only way to get adequate
nutrition is to supplement with superfoods or whole food concentrates
(vitamins, whole food powders, supplement capsules, etc.) along with
eating healthy meals. Organizations like the AHA, however, insist that
nutrient supplementation is actually bad for your health.

Lie #10: All these lab tests are for your own good.

Truth #10: At least half of all diagnostic tests ordered by doctors
are medically unnecessary. They're often conducted merely to generate
revenues for the hospital or medical group that owns the doctor's
clinic. Some doctors are actually required to generate a certain
dollar amount of lab test revenues in order to keep their jobs.
