Is Bread Really Your Brain's "silent Killer?"

I find it exceedingly difficult to take Dr. Perlmutter's claims seriously. Let's look for Dr. Perlmutter's credentials. His CV may look impressive but overall it's filled with things that aren't particularly relevant to clinical knowledge/practice. What few peer-reviewed publications he has appear to be in journals that command little respect in the wider medical community. The information found in his Florida medical license is worrisome, as it appears he does not actually practice clinical medicine: For someone who has such strong opinions, it's odd that he does not appear to see and treat patients. As of this writing, his clinical status is also listed as "unknown" by his board, which is a bit concerning as well, since most people are simply listed as being "Clinically active": Dr. Perlmutter obviously has a medical degree and was board-certified at one point (in 1987, when neurology was very much still a nascent field), but he hasn't re-certified in over 20 years. That's a really long time that represents a vast body of knowledge added to the field, and Dr. Perlmutter has never proven that he has kept up with his field's advancements. The only reason he has maintained his board Continue reading >>

    Have you ever taken a drive way out in the country? Let's say you are just driving around, enjoying the beautiful countryside, when you realize it's getting late, you are low on gas, and you need to get back.
    After some time you come to a fence across the road that says road closed. Since the fence is unlocked and part way open, you push it the rest of the way, and drive on. Shortly thereafter you notice a sign that says bridge out, but it is even later now, and you are in a hurry, so you continue on.
    Soon you see another sign about last chance to turn around before the bridge, but being in hurry you continue on. Before you know it you are on the bridge, but don't notice anything, so you continue on. Just as you are attempting to tune the radio you feel the car falling out from under you. When you hit the water below you realize those signs were right, the bridge is out.
    It's just like that with heart disease. The first warning sign you are headed down the wrong path is when you become overweight, or take up smoking. The 2nd warning sign you are headed down the wrong path is when you become obese. For the smoker it might be passing age 50.
    A 3rd warning sign might be when your doctor tells you your blood sugar, blood pressure, or cholesterol levels are high. Or, warns you yet again about smoking. A 4th warning sign might be that you not only haven't exercised for years, it seems like heavy exercise to climb a flight or 2 of stairs.

    My point is that, sure, you get a ton of warning signs, and maybe one verbal from your doctor, but that's only if you ever bother to see one. Many obese, like smokers, never go to the doctor because of what they might hear. Thus, the majority of warning signs are silent, making it largely a silent killer.

    Until it progresses sure, it can be- a silent killer is any disease process that can progress to being fatal and that (at one point) lacks signs and symptoms. hypertension is a great example of a silent killer- most people with hypertension have no symptoms, and unless they get their BP checked they would never know it… until it progresses to a point where it becomes high enough to cause headaches or other symptoms, and by then there may already be irreversible damage done.

Why Is The Zodiac Killer Called That?

The Zodiac killer sent out letters to the newspapers, where he confessed the murders. He called himself "Zodiac" in those letters - actually in the first few letters he remained anonymous, and then starting with the letter sent in August 1969, he introduced himself as "Zodiac". This is the first letter where the murderer called himself Zodiac: Continue reading >>

Why Is Prostate Cancer A Silent Killer?

Hello and good question! I discuss prostate health problems in my book, “Men's Health: Natural approaches for better prostate health,” which you may find to be a good read whenever you have time. Prostate cancer is considered a silent killer because this deadly disease often shows no symptoms, silently attacking its victims with no warning signs. Although symptoms may not always appear, there may be warning signs. Some symptoms include: a frequent need to urinate, especially at night difficulty controlling urination or bowel movements painful or burning sensation during urination blood in urine or semen difficulty having an erection painful ejaculation frequent pain or stiffness in the spine, hips, ribs, and other bones weakness or numbness in the legs or feet Prevention is ideal Prevention of prostate cancer is based on a set of good lifestyle choices. Several studies have mentioned regular exercise as a key to reduce the risk of getting prostate cancer. Being overweight or obese can further complicate prostate cancer, so maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important. The sooner it is detected, the higher the survival rate When detected early, the survival rate for prostate can Continue reading >>
