Dr. William Campbell Douglas has been one of my personal favorites for a number of years. He tells it like he sees it, and always has interesting things to say. The article below is reprint of one of Dr. Douglas’ newsletters, with it’s advertising left in. Our website has no affiliation with any of the ads or products promoted, but I wanted to pass on the info from Dr. Douglas. It’s worth taking the time to read – Dennis.
‘I HAVEN’T HAD A GLASS OF WATER IN 20 YEARS…’
Drinking tons of water is great…if you want to raise your stroke risk, bring on kidney failure, and encourage early Alzheimer’s.
SURPRISED? But this is just one example of how MASS MEDIA MEDICINE is ruining our health. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, YOU CAN LIVE LONG and LOVE every minute of IT!
The National Research Council panel of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that more work needs to be done to ensure that genetically engineered salmon, corn and other organisms do not taint the food supply or wipe out other species.
Scientists have been trying to find newer technologies that could slow down or completely stop the movement of genetically engineered species, or the spread of their genes. According to the panel, these methods of ‘bioconfinement’ are still in the early research stages, especially the new roducts deemed hazardous, and show no complete guarantee that they can be kept under control.
The Bush administration has been putting the interests of businesses, particularly the sugar industry, ahead of the global fight against obesity.
Since 1990, successive U.S. governments have blocked the World Health Organization’s (WHO) call for action to reduce the national recommendation of sugar consumption from 25 percent to 10 percent. The Bush administration, which receives millions of dollars in funding from the sugar industry, argues that there is little evidence to prove that consuming too much sugar is a direct cause of obesity. The president believes fighting fat is a matter of the individual, not the state, and opposes WHO’s recommendation to reduce sugar consumption to 10 percent.

The myth that the doctor’s medicine is best
Let’s say you’ve decided you’re willing to take responsibility for your health. Now it’s time to take action, right? Well, not quite. First, there’s an illusion that you must thoroughly dismantle if you want to eliminate the biggest roadblock on the path back to health. This illusion is deeply ingrained. It’s so deeply ingrained in the American psyche, that it sounds crazy to argue that it’s a lie, a myth.

HARLINGEN, Texas – In a small adobe complex of apartments and offices minutes north of the Mexican border, Fergus Kear, an Indiana attorney, sits in a vinyl chair in a clean, quiet room as an IV drips an unregulated, untested formula of herbal compounds into his veins.
