Happiness is!

The son of a dear friend of mine had his 15 th cancer surgery yesterday. The new tumor was discrete and had not invaded any surrounding tissue. And the doctors decided to study the tumor to try to develop a treatment for subsequent such recurrances. I felt great going home from the hospital last night. All his anxiety or that of his mother and brother can be set aside and life can go on.

Breast Cancer a cash cow,

Doctors, Big Pharma and device manufacturers are benefiting, Even Medicare. TV, radio

In the days when I was still taking mammograms I remember that after you had the radiation you could not get the results. In order to be reimbursed you had call it to comeback for another visit to get the doctor to tell you if he/she found any cancer. Sometimes they find a non cancer, Ductal carcinoma in situ http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/18/health/breast-biopsies-dcis-atypia-diagnosis-leave-room-for-doubt.html. or call it "atypical". The woman is called back for a sonogram or more intense mammogram, or biopsy. Or the woman is put on medication Tamoxifin for years. So everyone profits.

It is becoming such a big business, There is a Ken Burns special soon on the subject of Cancer. Also NPR radio is following 3 women who are sharing their experience with the disease with John Hockenbury. One has had a recurrence. And today Angelina Jolie tells her story in todays NYT’ of being about to undergo surgery very soon to avoid a recurrence of her Cancer.
There is a better solution to the diagnosis of breast cancer. Thermography which does not involve dangerous and cumulative radiation but tends to be more accurate and less invasive. And may well catch the disease earlier.

Keep it in the Ground!

Mitch McConnell was on the front age of the NYTimes today asking that the president’s dislike of coal did not please him as representing the coal state of KY. Can he not look at the broader picture. The Guardian is mounting a campaign to not use coal any more. I think we should also not use oil from the ground , or water from the aquafur in CA. We need to conserve these natural resources for future generations. From the Guardian please sign the petition. We also need to consume less, Don’t waste and throw out less. reuse, recycle and recover. Save the planet.

Banking to avoid identity theft

February 25, 2015 by

At a recent PEIR presentation we were warned not to use debit cards. They enable thief’s to empty out one’s bank account. So I disabled my debit card and was assured by the bank that I could withdraw funds with my credit card. Tried it and for which they charge. This is considered a cash advance and was unsuccessful. So how do I access my funds from my checking account? I went to Capital One to try to get access to funds I deposit there and was told that there would be fees for this. Besides Capitol 1 has no presence in CA. So banking is a scam as many other issues.

This is what I hoped to present at the meeting with NYS officials this morning. Unfortunately we were there only to listen. I was able to broach the subject and one of Cuomo’s aides said she would check on what I was concerned about and get back to me. Most of the the audience were from Nassau County and there does not seem to be fluoride┬áin the drinking water on Long ┬áIsland.
Originally Fluoride was a toxic waste product of manufacturing aluminum products and fertilizer mfg. They disposed of the toxic waste and got paid for it. At present NYS is paying $24M a year to purchase this chemical poison About 71 % of citizens of the state are subject to this and the governor is proposing to put another 10 % into the system. Fluoride is a poison and shouldn’t be in our drinking water. Where we cannot control the dose individuals take. That is medication without consent. Dosage cannot be controlled. How about babies on infant formula, Thirsty diabetics and persons with kidney disease
Fl;uoride only benefits children while teeth are forming. It benefits no-one after second teeth have been formed. Pills and drops can be prescribed for that purpose.
The ADA was sued by 40 of its members to stop endorsing the fluoridation of munici[pal water. These members said fluoride was unsafe. It causes permanent physical damage .
Research has shown that there is an increase in cancer rate in areas that fluoridate water. Doctors see premature aging of the human body in areas that fluoridate the water.
One tube of toothpaste has enough fluoride in it to kill a 25 lb. child.. Children swallow a sizable amount of toothpaste when they brush their teeth.
Instead children should be fed fewer sweets,encouraged to brush and floss frequently. Many countries have eliminated the poison including China, Germany, France in the US Albuquerque, Flagstaff and Phoenix AZ. is about to mount a campaign to eliminate the toxin.
