Use of e-cigarettes every day can nearly double the odds of a heart attack, and increase it five-fold for those smoking and using e-cigarettes according to a new analysis of a survey of nearly 70,000 people, led by researchers at UC San Francisco.





A 2017 study reported in the media determined cancer patients that used alternative therapies were five times more likely to die, in comparison to those who received conventional therapy. How could this be true, I wondered, considering my long-term experience with cancer patients—then it occurred to me to read the study’s fine print. This is yet another apple comparison to oranges that is quite concerning and misguiding.




A Harvard University researcher while reporting the findings of a new study, said, “In these patients, alternative strategies are invaluable. In this study, we found that the relaxation response can successfully help reduce blood pressure in hypertensive patients who are not taking medication!”


A few weeks ago, I met a new patient, we’ll call Mark. He’s in his late twenties and has a history of heart disease-he’s already had multiple stents placed into his heart’s arteries to keep them open. Mark volunteered an important experience, that saved his life, when he insisted to his doctors that something was seriously wrong with him.


Today, I’m going to share with you, probably the most important information I’ve ever shared with my patients, family, friends and associates. It is crucial, even life saving information. What would you do if you knew something was very wrong with your body, but your doctor ignores or dismisses your concerns?
