This is K, She will be 2 years old in Nov. Her eye doctor, XXXX, says he has not found anything to indicate that going to China is a good idea.
He treated us like crap when we first told him we were thinking about stem cells.
This article is not for the faint of heart. The answer to the title question may be hazardous to your health. Perhaps you remember in the film “A Few Good Men,” Jack Nicholson destroyed Tom Cruise with five words: “You can’t HANDLE the truth!”
I ask, can YOU handle the truth?
To the doctors who write that they are outraged at my statements, this time I back up every statement with a reference. If you come up with specific errors, I will listen, but if you believe your own propaganda that “America is first in medicine” when it is indeed LAST, there is no hope for you. Better you should listen to your president when he claims you and your colleagues are bankrupting the country. That is NOT political rhetoric.
This is the first in a series of articles whose purpose is to explore the REASON why Stem Cell Treatments will not come to your country in any numbers during your lifetime. To understand the REASON why doctors and scientists are regularly published in mainstream media slandering other doctors who save and improve lives with stem cells by calling them “Snake Oil Salesmen.” To show you the REASON why your know-nothing-about-stem-cells home doctor will tell a patient whom he is not improving with pills that “stem cells cannot help.”
You can start with this: They lie to you so that they will continue to earn commissions for the overpriced drugs they prescribe. (1) Others lie so that they will continue to receive kickbacks from corrupt medical device companies whose products aren’t worth much, so they have to use bribes to get crooked doctors to promote and use their devices so you or your insurance will pay.(2) (3) And in too many cases those devices do more harm than good.
Why do these hopelessly ill-informed doctors who have sworn to “First, do no harm,” treat you like crap when you suggest there is something better than calling a treatable disease “untreatable?”
The REASON is that Western Medicine has become, in the past 47 years, a No-Cures-Allowed, Patients-be Damned, Profits-above-all Medical System. (4) Repair Stem Cells threaten those profits, but you are not able to believe your doctor will lie to you, so you continue to suffer, take useless pills, (5) deadly pills (6) and die too young.
Five Things you cannot accept after a quarter century of the “Ask Your Doctor” campaign:
Two of them, when I told them what I thought about Synthroid, insisted I visit an endocrinologist so he could explain exactly why I should destroy my thyroid. Both endocrinologists, one in France, one in Thailand, after more specific tests, told me I had an “especially healthy thyroid for a patient 65+ years old!” I wouldn’t waste my time asking an American MD to tell me not to take a drug.
The NY Times Article
Many doctors have long believed that PSA testing kills more men that it saves. But it is profitable to urologists (like the one who prescribed it to me nine years ago and told me I would be in grave danger unless I got a prostectomy,) profitable to oncologists, especially profitable to surgeons and hospitals, and even more so to those who control the FDA. (13)
As of today, it has been proven scientifically that PSA=prostectomy is hoax which is killing thousands. But you can bet your last dollar (if you have one) that the thieves of the FDA will do nothing, while men are screwed out of their money, out of sexual pleasures and out of their lives….screwed, because that is what a “patients-be damned” system does. (14)
A system which has no qualms about killing well over 500 patients each and every day of the year in hospitals alone (15) not to mention hundreds of deaths from “approved” killer drugs, certainly has no qualms about having its pawns lie every time they mention stem cells.
Be assured that a future newsletter will prove the same applies to female patients---costing them lives and money too. But today we start with a NY Times article from exactly three months ago.
Notice the headline which is a “lie by omission,” something the Times does better than most. The article’s main point is not about “few lives” saved. It is about the thousands of men who are doomed every year by the PSA test = prostectomy “patient-be damned” hoax.

Prostate Test Found to Save Few Lives
By GINA KOLATA
The findings, the first based on rigorous, randomized studies, confirm some longstanding concerns about the wisdom of widespread prostate cancer screening.
(Actually, the problem is not with the screening, it is with the surgery the medical-profiteers scare the patients into—dm)
Most of the cancers tend to grow very slowly and are never a threat and, with the faster-growing ones, even early diagnosis might be too late.
The studies - one in Europe and the other in the United States - are “some of the most important studies in the history of men’s health,” said Dr. Otis Brawley, the chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society.
In the European study, 48 men were told they had prostate cancer and needlessly treated for it.
Dr. Peter B. Bach, a physician and epidemiologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, says …
… there is a 49 in 50 (98%) chance that he will have been treated unnecessarily for a cancer that was never a threat to his life.
(“Treated unnecessarily,” is THE leading skill of Western Medicine—dm)
(Notice that even in this article, the enormous amount of deaths from the
surgery are not mentioned!---dm)
As soon as the PSA test was introduced in 1987, it became a routine part of preventive health care for many men age 40 and older.
(Read this sentence again. These very profitable tests and deadly surgeries were immediately approved while stem cells (which have never killed anyone) have every corrupt medical scientist in the country making up reasons why stem cells are “unproven” after improving thousands of lives with ZERO DEATHS---dm)
Now, with the new data, cancer experts said men should carefully consider the possible risks and benefits of treatment before deciding to be screened.
(Note that these experts who are wringing their hands NEVER suggest banning that which kills, they only care about profits, so let’s ban stem cells instead!---dm)
Some may decide not to be screened at all.
(But with their trusted doctors pushing surgery instead of safety, how can they decline?—dm)
For years, the cancer society has urged men to be informed before deciding to have a PSA test. “Now we actually have something to inform them with,” Dr. Brawley said. “We’ve got numbers.”
(Inform them if and when the profit-hungry doctor decides to, but do not ban it because it creates profits across the medical business. Who cares if it kills tens of thousands---“We shall lie and you shall die, but we’ll make tons of money!”)
Every man has been followed for at least seven years, said Dr. Barnett Kramer, a study co-author at the National Institutes of Health. By seven years, the death rate was 13 percent lower for the unscreened group.
Think about this: A dozen paragraphs into the article they mention the truth, if you can understand what they are saying in a quiet, oblique way. Allow me to say it so you can understand:
13% of the screened - prostectomy group die in the next seven years so that your doctors and their bosses make even more money.
Yet not one of the many experts quoted above is suggesting an FDA ban on this outrageous, life-destroying procedure. Stem cells are banned by pretending they are unproven despite thousands of successes, but the real reason is they threaten the profits of the powers that run what passes for medicine in the west.
So it is no stretch at all to realize that deadly drugs and therapies that kill are approved only because they are very profitable---efficacy is secondary and safety comes in last.
Thirteen percent fewer deaths for those lucky enough not to take the PSA. That’s thousands of men doomed per year by your doctors and an FDA which will never destroy the profits of its corporate lords and masters.
NOW ask yourself why you should believe what they tell you about a subject they don’t know anything about - stem cells - knowing they are STILL TODAY cheerfully continuing to lead men to PSA testing and deadly surgery without even blinking!
(1) Congress pretending it cares about illegal kickbacks to doctors with one hand and taking bribes with the other to guarantee the kickbacks will NEVER be punished or stopped;
(2) Congress pretends to care about protecting you and yours against medical devices that harm and kill patients, but they are bribed just as well as the FDA whose own scientists try to do the right thing and ultimately fail – always - because money always whips ethics in American medicine.
(3)Minnesota trying to corral big Medical Device Company bribes
(4)No Cures Allowed - seconding the motion
(5) The Prescription Drug Hoax : “Senior executive Allen Roses, of GlaxoSmithKline, is quoted in a national newspaper as stating that more than 90% of drugs only work in 30-50% of people. "
(6)Prescription Deaths double in one decade in UK
(7) Congress pretending again, but they know they will do nothing because the criminals pay them more than they pay any doctor

Authors: The Commonwealth Fund Commission on a High Performance Health System
The Commonwealth Fund is a private foundation that aims to promote a high performing health care system that achieves better access, improved quality, and greater efficiency, particularly for society's most vulnerable, including low-income people, the uninsured, minority Americans, young children, and elderly adults.
Prepared for the Commonwealth Fund Commission on a High Performance Health System, the National Scorecard on U.S. Health System Performance, 2008, updates the 2006 Scorecard, the first comprehensive means of measuring and monitoring health care outcomes, quality, access, efficiency, and equity in the United States. The 2008 Scorecard, which presents trends for each dimension of health system performance and for individual indicators, confirms that the U.S. health system continues to fall far short of what is attainable, especially given the resources invested. Across 37 core indicators of performance, the U.S. achieves an overall score of 65 out of a possible 100 when comparing national averages with U.S. and international performance benchmarks. Overall, performance did not improve from 2006 to 2008. Access to health care significantly declined, while health system efficiency remained low. Quality metrics that have been the focus of national campaigns or public reporting efforts did show gains.
Every family wants the best care for an ill or injured family member. Most are grateful for the care and attention received. Yet, evidence in the National Scorecard on U.S. Health System Performance, 2008, shows that care typically falls far short of what is achievable. Quality of care is highly variable, and opportunities are routinely missed to prevent disease, disability, hospitalization, and mortality. Across 37 indicators of performance, the U.S. achieves an overall score of 65 out of a possible 100 when comparing national averages with benchmarks of best performance achieved internationally and within the United States.
Even more troubling, the U.S. health system is on the wrong track. Overall, performance has not improved since the first National Scorecard was issued in 2006. Of greatest concern, access to health care has significantly declined. As of 2007, more than 75 million adults—42 percent of all adults ages 19 to 64—were either uninsured during the year or underinsured, up from 35 percent in 2003. At the same time, the U.S. failed to keep pace with gains in health outcomes achieved by the leading countries. The U.S. now ranks last out of 19 countries on a measure of mortality amenable to medical care, falling from 15th as other countries raised the bar on performance. Up to 101,000 fewer people would die prematurely if the U.S. could achieve leading, benchmark country rates.
The exception to this overall trend occurred for quality metrics that have been the focus of national campaigns or public reporting. For example, a key patient safety measure—hospital standardized mortality ratios (HSMRs)—improved by 19 percent from 2000–2002 to 2004–2006. This sustained improvement followed widespread availability of risk-adjusted measures coupled with several high-profile local and national programs to improve hospital safety and reduce mortality. Hospitals are showing measurable improvement on basic treatment guidelines for which data are collected and reported nationally on federal Web sites. Rates of control of two common chronic conditions, diabetes and high blood pressure, have also improved significantly. These measures are publicly reported by health plans, and physician groups are increasingly rewarded for results in improving treatment of these conditions.
The U.S. spends twice per capita what other major industrialized countries spend on health care, and costs continue to rise faster than income. We are headed toward $1 of every $5 of national income going toward health care. We should expect a better return on this investment.
Performance on measures of health system efficiency remains especially low, with the U.S. scoring 53 out of 100 on measures gauging inappropriate, wasteful, or fragmented care; avoidable hospitalizations; variation in quality and costs; administrative costs; and use of information technology. Lowering insurance administrative costs alone could save up to $100 billion a year at the lowest country rates.
National leadership is urgently needed to yield greater value for the resources devoted to health care.
The National Scorecard
The National Scorecard includes 37 indicators in five dimensions of health system performance: healthy lives, quality, access, efficiency, and equity. U.S. average performance is compared with benchmarks drawn from the top 10 percent of U.S. states, regions, health plans, hospitals, or other providers or top-performing countries, with a maximum possible score of 100. If average U.S. performance came close to the top rates achieved at home or internationally, then average scores would approach 100.
In 2008, the U.S. as a whole scored only 65, compared with a score of 67 in 2006—well below the achievable benchmarks. Average scores on each of the five dimensions ranged from a low of 53 for efficiency to 72 for healthy lives.
On those indicators for which trend data exist, performance compared with benchmarks more often worsened than improved, primarily because of declines in national rates between the 2006 and 2008 Scorecards. Overall, national scores declined for 41 percent of indicators, while one-third (35%) improved, and the rest exhibited no change (or were not updated). Exhibit 2 lists indicators and summarizes scores and benchmark rates.
As observed in the first Scorecard, the bottom group of hospitals, health plans, or geographic regions is often well behind even average rates, with as much as a fivefold spread between top and bottom rates. On key indicators, a 50 percent improvement or more would be required to achieve benchmark levels.
Scorecard Highlights and Key Findings
The U.S. continues to perform far below what is achievable, with wide gaps between average and benchmark performance across dimensions. Despite some encouraging pockets of improvement, the country as a whole has failed to keep pace with levels of performance attained by leading nations, delivery systems, states, and regions. Following are major highlights from the Scorecard by performance dimension:
Healthy Lives: Average Score 72
Preventable mortality: The U.S. fell to last place among 19 industrialized nations on mortality amenable to health care—deaths that might have been prevented with timely and effective care. Although the U.S. rate improved by 4 percent between 1997–1998 and 2002–2003 (from 115 to 110 deaths per 100,000), rates improved by 16 percent on average in other nations, leaving the U.S. further behind.
Activity limitations: More than one of every six working-age adults (18%) reported being unable to work or carry out everyday activities because of health problems in 2006—up from 15 percent in 2004. This increase points to the need for better prevention and management of chronic diseases to enhance quality of life and capacity to work, especially among younger adults as they age.
Quality: Average Score 71
Effective care: Control of diabetes and high blood pressure improved markedly from 1999–2000 to 2003–2004 for adults, according to physical exams conducted on a nationally representative sample. Among adults with diabetes, rates of at least fair control of blood sugar increased from 79 percent to 88 percent from 1999–2000 to 2003–2004. Among adults with hypertension, rates of control of high blood pressure increased from 31 percent to 41 percent over the same time period. Yet, a 30 to 60 percentage point difference remains between top- and bottom performing health plans. Hospitals' adherence to treatment standards for heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia also improved from 2004 to 2006, but with a persistent gap between leading and lagging hospital groups. Delivery rates for basic preventive care failed to improve: as of 2005, only half of adults received all recommended preventive care.
Coordinated care: Heart failure patients were more likely to receive hospital discharge instructions in 2006 (68%) than in 2004 (50%), but rates varied widely between top and bottom hospital groups (from 94% to 36%). Hospitalizations increased among nursing home residents from 2000 to 2004, as did rehospitalizations for patients discharged to skilled nursing facilities—signaling a need to improve long-term care and transitions between health care providers.
Safe care: One key indicator of patient safety—hospital standardized mortality ratios—improved significantly since the first Scorecard, with a 19 percent decline. Safety risks, however, remain high as one-third of adults with health problems reported mistakes in their care in 2007. Drug safety is of particular concern. Rates of visits to physicians or emergency departments for adverse drug effects increased by one-third between 2001 and 2004.
Patient-centered, timely care: In 2007, as in 2005, less than half of U.S. adults with health problems were able to get a rapid appointment with a physician when they were sick. They also were the most likely among adults in seven countries surveyed to report difficulty obtaining health care after hours without going to the emergency department, and this rate increased from 61 percent to 73 percent since 2005. Within the U.S., there is wide variation among hospitals in terms of patient reports of how well staff responded to their needs.
While America continues to put its money into Embryonic Stem Cell research, a doctor in Iraq is actually treating patients with their own REPAIR Stem Cells. Dr. Abdul Majeed Alwan Hammadi is treating patients for free- and has so far treated 34 patients with stem cell therapy and treatment, mainly patients with Multiple Sclerosis.
Dr. Hammadi claims no side effects have been reported in his patients and this isn’t surprising because it is the patient’s own stem cells he is using.
We covered Dr. Hammadi briefly last month when he was treating Reverend Andrew White, the vicar for St. George’s church in Baghdad. Reverend Andrew was suffering from multiple sclerosis before his stem cell treatment.
Reverend Andrew had no qualms about using his own Adult Stem Cells for his treatment because they were cells from his own body, already designed to repair damage.
Dr. Hammadi started treating Reverend Andrew in January 2009. Since then (from the stem cell article):
White said his slurred speech and other MS symptoms improved since starting the three-hour therapy sessions, which involves Hammadi extracting adult stem cells from White’s blood and then injecting them into his spinal cord.
“When there’s no other treatment, you kind of just go with it,” White said. “At least there’s a chance.”
White said the therapy itself “can be a bit painful” since it involves a spinal canal puncture, but there has been a “massive difference” in his condition.
(It is possible Dr. H. does not have enough local anesthesia usually used in this procedure???—dm)
“It’s very rare for me to actually feel ill now,” he said. “My balance is still quite bad and my vision is not perfect, but I do not feel ill.”
In the middle of a warzone, a doctor is treating patients with their own Adult Stem Cells for free. While in the peaceful United States, too busy with its all-but-useless (but very profitable to the researchers) embryonic stem cell research, multiple sclerosis patients wait and suffer for the right to use their own stem cells for treatment. Is there something wrong with this picture?
Do you or someone you care about suffer from Type 2 Diabetes?
Patients can be treated with Repair Stem Cells by the top stem cell doctor in the field of diabetes for US$18,000 plus airfare.
If that’s affordable and you don’t wish to continue on your current path which may lead to the many serious complications of diabetes such as heart disease, kidney failure, blindness and amputation, click here for more information about stem cell therapy.
But if you just flat cannot afford that, we may have a USA alternative for under US$5,000 with scientific data behind it - this may be considered as an alternative to stem cells.
Not everyone can handle this. It requires self-discipline which 80%+ of diabetics cannot manage.
It requires a 4-week trip to Northern California. Not too much to pay to reduce the chances of serious complications. It requires the toughest diet you ever heard of - FOR LIFE… not bad for a chance to add 7 years to your life expectancy (the average numbers of diabetics vs. non-diabetics).
It requires moderate exercise for 20-30 minutes a day, 6 days a week FOR LIFE.
And that’s the good news. Because the rough part is the first four weeks in a modern clinic to train you.
It is NOT for those with little ability to control their appetites. Those folks will need stem cells and/or stay on medication forever. If you cannot give up all the toxic foods you have been eating for years (and most cannot) read no further and save your money for a future stem cell treatment in Latin America.
If living the life of a healthy, active person is more important to you than the foods you have been addicted to (in many cases, addicted by addictive chemicals), then click below.
If you think you qualify mentally and you want to take a look at this program - US$4900 for the one year you will need to learn this program, US$3750 each if two diabetics share a room for those first four weeks, then click below.
Diabetes not only affects you, it affects everyone who cares about you. You may find a brighter future in Northern California. Please email me today firstname.lastname@example.org, and remember you’re under no obligation.
