1A, BAD REGULATORS, BAD PHARMAjournal articles confirmation, the overflow.  Expert advice is yet another example of promoting profits by scientists for hire, these key opinion leaders, the KOLs get it consistent wrong by promoting industry’s talking points.  You’d be surprised at how many accepted as fact beliefs about health and medications have been cooked-up to maximize profits.  There is a mountain of journal articles exposing the flaws, and below are the best of the documentaries and lectures exposing the corruption.  As Harvard Prof. Marcia Angell says, “the 800-pound gorilla can do anything it wants.”

Psychiatry Assoc. To turn doctors into willing pill pushers.  Weak on science; missed that all these drugs are tranquilizers, given other labels for sales, & they are worse long-term than nothing at all.  They pass FDA approval because they increase sleep, which is 15% of its “benefits” under Hamilton Rating Scale.  This is a blue print on how pharma markets all classes of drugs, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rk-ryvdWPgw  Excellent

*****Big Pharma:  Marketing Disease and Pushing Drugs 73 min, 100,000 about 2006, excellent on use of marketing, brief interviews and ads, but weak on quality of video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4CyAPJretY  Excellent

A phone interview, all slide, sound so-so very effective https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyzkv5uFGt8 Very Good

*****NPA Annual Conference 2011 Marcia Angell, 47 min, 335 views; lecture is of first quality; at the age of 72, she still stands above others.  She explains the existence of a fire wall wherein University professors ran trials to answer important scientific questions free of pharma controls, but in 1984 a Reagan shift began: thus major bias is the norm.  Poor audio quality, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjr4pPP-2VI excellent

Doing Good or doing Well?  Ethics in the Pharmaceutical Industry, 99 min, 4,500 views Harvard Prof. Marcia Angell, Brown U. on corruption worked by the system whose measure is the maximization of profits.  Dr. Mary Reuters, an industry advocate, gave the second talk.  She didn’t respond to Angell’s points, but used industry funded studies to “prove” their responsibility, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyHtyMkAsgs interesting    


1B  Bad Medicine, Bad Advice (more in #s 8, 9, & 10)

*****Tamiflu 20 min 1,900 views, Australian Broadcast Corporation, on the multi-billion dollar, anti-viral scam of stockpiles to fight the possible avian flu; only it is both useless and dangerous.  Tamiflu has been injected into hundreds of millions of cold sufferers on the possibility of influenza, but only about 1-in-5 has  influenza, also useless for bacteria and other viruses, and there are serious side effects.   Shows how broken the information and regulatory systems are around the world.  A window on the world of pharma, doctors, and governments in our corporatist world https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wiqb9U3hup0 excellent 


The calcium story, 51, min, 49,000 views, Dr. Jason Fung, goes over the setting up of the dietary amount recommended, its amount is 3-times that of populations for which osteoporosis is exceedingly rare.  The calcium supplements are associated with atherosclerosis through deposits in the arteries.  He lets the research do the talking, a very logical lecture.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqMSi3qQBRY Very good       

Dietary Villains – Part 2:  Salt Scare, 30 min, 40,000 view, Dr Jason Fung, goes over the evidence for the  dietary recommendation to lower salt.  Similar to the previous, a lecture in Ih the evidence does the arguing.

Salt:  Are you getting enough? 13 min, 65,000 views 9/17, 327,000 views, What I’ve Learned; the historical use was much higher because of food preservation; we urinate the excess away.  With US guidelines for salt we have a higher mortality rate than taking 6 times that amount. He misses the little effect that it has on blood pressure, see Dr. Fung directly above. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=salt+%2B+what+I%27ve+learnedvery very good  

The Silent Epidemic:  The Untold Stories of Vaccines 108 min, 518,000 views, points out how pharma promotes vaccines, many of low efficacy and all of questionable safety because we are injecting foreign substance that have not meaningfully been tested for safety or purity.  But the claims of harm done are too often based on weak science and a temporal relationship.  Good video and sound, worth watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLqSgrhQdq4  very good   

Too much Medicine 28, min, 9,900 views, ABCTV, Catalyst series, Dr. Demasi, starts with mammograms and over diagnosis, thus harm through unnecessary treatment, covers most major issues such as polypharmacy, guidelines, etc. a good start on a complex topic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdffcID_BsA very good

The doctor who gave up drugs Episode 1 l real story, 58 minutes 257,000 views, Dr. Chris Van Tulleken, BBC quality and style documentary of, getting off a drugs.  Done in a UK clinic, 14,000 patients, 15 doctor, 10 minutes per patient; they expect a prescription. Human interest lacks science, chooses 3 types of medication, pain meds, psychiatric, antibiotics, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_ggnhpGvvA Episode 2: 58 min, 132,000 views, caught in a chain of 10 minute exams and patients who expect drugs, misses how bad they are, and how broken the trials and reporting and guidelines https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wjn4f8YhhfU good [1]

Note:  The large number of professors and doctors who have come forward to criticize pharma’s tobacco ethics which generates tobacco science to market drugs most of which aren’t worth their side effect.  Many of these drugs are causal for other chronic conditions such as dementia, cardiovascular disease, colitis…  A chorus of academic critics has convincing evidence which can be found in peer review journal articles, a sample of which is at /rep and some more /rjklist of their books, and why doctors give Junk treatments.

I recommend that you cast the videos onto the television and view them with friends and family in the comfort of the living rom.  I now use a 20 foot HDMI cable, and the audio is played on a surround sound system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcMBm-UvdII&t=20s

Chromecast will no longer work with computers (thankyou Google—2017).  I wasted 2 days and several calls to Chromecast help line.  Then in March 2019 I saw a message that it doesn’t work with computers any more.  They want the owner to cast from their smart phone. 

It is easier & quicker to type on a computer on this website than to use the smart option on the television and its remote control or cast from a smart phone.

[1] I hold  based on an assortment of changes that the only way the government, the media, and the universities will confront the food manufacturers and  pharma is for the financial sector want greater profits to oppose them, and therefore to exert its influence.

2A.   DIETING, SUGAR CARBS; 2B Fasting, 2C Fats  2D ketogenic Diet (Very low carbs).

#3 fasting for curing/preventing diabetes, #4 starving cancer, fasting & autophagy  Links to articles at healthfully.org:  library of topics, diet and food journal articles, basic science, more journal science, non-technical, testimonials   Dieticians & doctors are taught by industry.  A chorus of critics is exposing the misinformation and the real problem is insulin resistance which is reversed by ketogenic diet with fasting.  Fructose in excess is a poison to the liver that causes insulin resistance and the conditions associated with the western diet.  Saturated fats are good unsaturated bad.

2C Fats, saturated. unsaturated, rancid and trans.  Again, we have industry maximizing profits, and this case almost every that is believed by physicians, dietacians, and the public is false. For example, saturated fats are the preferred best source of energy, moderately better than glucose from unrefined starches. Unsaturated fats (UFAs) become rancid on the shelf, cooking and in the body.  When rancid the damage the membranes of cells including the mitochondria, and thereby every metabolically active system in the body is operating at suboptimal levels. Omega-3 fatty acids are not good but bad, since they are UFAs.  What is good is another compound, furan fatty acids, found in fish oil; they prevent rancidification.  Omega-3 are not essential for health and they don’t reduce inflammation.  Saturated fats are heart health and preferred by the heart and brain, and UFAs aren’t because of rancidification.  And there is more the evidence against trans fats is weak.  The western ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 (1:16) isn’t bad, it is the quantify of seed oils (vegetable) UFAs that is.

****** Metformin – the case of exaggerating both benefits and harms, 29 min, 150,000 views Prof James McCormack, UBC   No quality evidence that metformin works, except weight loss through nausea—great!.  It reduces  renal performance and minimally lowering HbA1c.  Skeptical of treating glucose when problem is insulin resistance.  Plenty of journal evidence presented.    If physician told you of no benefits, nausea, lower the quality of life, would you take it?  A cheap gateway-drug that establish faith in the physician and patient asking for one with less side effects.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUOC5d0Siws   Excellent

Metformin diabetes worst enemy, 6 min, 673,000 views, Dr. Greg Castello praise metformin, a sales pitch, must take with low carbs, gradual step up to 2 grams, shuts of glucogenesis by the liver, clear organized, lowers MI risk and promotes weight loss.  The liver turns on glucogenesis to restore level of glycogen to prevent lack of blood glucose.  Diabetic shock is caused because red-blood cell depends on glucose, low glucose harms the -blood cells function supplying oxygen—thus the diabetic shock.  Second, the body stores glycogen for emergencies.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyOFbCmTzaQ&t=28s poor Skip

Are you smarter than a Doctor? What your doctor doesn't know about nutrition 71, min 222,000 view 2 months, Dr. Paul Mason, shows LCHF diet is superior to a LC diet. Restrict both seed oils and carbs, both cause insulin resistance, which harms by glucose toxicity (wrong) and hold insulin resistance is the cause of diabetes, thus treats his patients with keto diet and saturated fats; nut oils and fructose are poisons because they damage the liver through ROS.  Good points about the bad guideline and practices of medicine; exposes bad pharma bias and not sharing raw data as reasons for bad medical practices.  Well organized with journal articles as evidence many good points to which I took notes.  Freshmen level lecture, some errors of course. Polished lecture, good sound https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNz2gWqL0Ng  Very good

Catherine Croft PhD on Hyperinsulinemia and Kraft 13 min, 2,500 views, lecture on fasting glucose does not reveal insulin resistance; best method is glucose tolerance test with measure of insulin at 2 hours, if above 30 mu/mL than 90% chance of insulin resistance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCtwgAAuyBE Good 

A brief history of fat and why we hate it, 20 min, 2,100,000 views, blames obesity on sedentary life-style (wrong), the need for excess fat for survival, basically full of errors, good illustration, relies upon several professors, ectopic fat causes diabetes (correct) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vinqph-g5QI Okay

Michael Mosley 5x15- blood sugar, 17 min, 213,000 views, swallows glucose causing pathology, misses sugar as poison.  Good motivational no science, well present talk by a person who is the most effective UK writer and formerly BBC medical documentary maker on food & health.  If interested in Michael then watch, otherwise there are better choices https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1HpS04aErQ  Good

Fasting and the Fifty Percent Insulin Problem 21 min, 188,000 views Butter Bob Briggs, clear simple, direct on how fasting lower insulin, recommends intermittent fasting or alternate day fasting, a very good lecture.      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sAqy1lnWXo&t=525s   Very good     


*****Reversing the irreversible:  Type 2 diabetes and you 61 min, Newcastle University, Prof. Roy Taylor, slides, only with voice; explains why fasting works like bariatric surgery, his MRI images shows that liver and pancreas metabolize the excess fat to cure type-2 diabetes.  Misses fasting as part of diet and that LADA (Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults) of some in in his trial thus they can’t be cured by diet Important  https://campus.recap.ncl.ac.uk/Panopto/Pages/Embed.aspx?id=c3bef819-e5f4-4a55-876f-0a23436988ed  VG

*****Diabetes the Hidden plague, BBC Panorama  58 min, 22,000 views, focuses on all the major health consequences (hospital) value information, full of sad human interest, will motivate the viewer by feeling the pain,  little on the fixing the 11 billion pounds cost to the NHS, lacking in science https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGJ6cTWyMfg  Very good

Kraft, father of insulin assay, interview of Dr. Joseph Kraft, concerning his recently published book on his 17,000 patient whom he tested for insulin resistance using a method he developed.  It shows that 90% of those tested produce excessive insulin following the taking of 75 ml of pure glucose, what we call insulin resistance is diabetes.  Those with elevated insulin are at risk for the conditions associated with the western diet.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0nV-_ddXoc Very important, Very good

***** How to reverse type2 diabetes 38 min, 51,000, Dr Robert Szabo, Low Carb Downunder was diagnosed with t2d at age of 37, 6 years ago, has clinic that treats diabetes, ,As of 2018 there were published 32 trials of low carbs for t2d, of which 6 were 2 years are longer, and of them 10 had over 100 participants. The better the restriction in carbs the better the results  Goes over the exiting data for surgery, low calorie, and low carb diets, dozens of graphs, sound good.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JLwUz5bc-w  Excellent

Session 2. The Problem With The ADA Diet 11 min, 6,000 views, Dr. Richard Bernstein, informative for Type 1  & 2 diabetes, on how to go drug free.  He explains why the ADA guidelines & what doctors are taught are wrong.  At 84 with Type 1 diabetes he is proof https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCzk66CQKEg Very good

Insulin resistance and high carbohydrate diets 41 min 813 views Dr. Timothy Noakes on how insulin resistance is caused by high-carbohydrate diet, and that is driving all the conditions once NAFLD develops especially type-2 diabetes.  Well presented, but a major flaw, misses the essential role of fructose in the carbs; thus ignores the prior talks by Taubes and Malhotra, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGKX8HoNb-0 Skip

Insulin Resistance 29 min, 48,000 views, Dr. Ted Naiman, figured out the biology behind the diet disaster.  He shows that the size of fat cells (how stuffed they are) is strongly correlated with insulin resistance and the subsequent pathology.  Several very important points such as the synthesis of new fat cell is why some fatsos are healthy, most don’t make new fat cells thus their adipose cells get stuffed and become resistant; technical, relies on journal articles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd8QFD5Ht18 Very good important

What if heart disease and diabetes had the same cause? 37 min  344,000 views, Lecture by Ivor Cummins. What I’ve learned, Misses fructose and mitochondrial dysfunction--this is a very common.  Build on insulin resistance to show the high rate of mortality and diabetes, and cancer.  Highest 1/3rsd had 40x risk versus the lowest third. Very good on the functions of insulin and the markers for it affects such as atherosclerosis and diabetes. Points out that LDL is not associated with illness. The full lecture The Pathway of Insulin Resistance Exposure and Implications is a better more technical version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_Gcq8bEUq8 Very good

The Latest Scams from the diabetic Industry 68 min, 140,000 views, Dr. John McDougall, a KOL,  has a clinic in which there is a 10-day program for diabetic, which gets type-2 diabetes patients off their medication.  He then goes on his lecture to inform the audience that saturated and trans fats raise cholesterol and serum glucose.  It is a slick presentation using tobacco science.  By the end I recognized that it is a continuing medical education class (CME), an audience of physicians, and he is spoon feeding them a line that fats promote diabetes.  A rare insight into a CME class https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgE2IdL6tMw  Watch to learn about pharma educating physicians and group behavior  The McDougall diet is low in fat, high in carbs and contains no cholesterol.  “The diet is based on a variety of starches such as rice, potatoes, corn, breads, pasta and fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables .” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_A._McDougall

NOTE:  6/3/21, I searched for CME classes on YouTube, got just 2 explaining them with low number of hits, done by KOLs.

*****Sugar, metabolic syndrome, and cancer 56 min, 395,000 8 months, Prof. Robert Lustig, Low Carb Down Under, like others college level, this time upper division, on how fructose causes the 3 in title, right on but possible the Warburg effect, states that cancer needs carbon change for synthesis in PPP Pentose Phosphate Pathway, I think it is of moderate importance and the apoptosis is major cause for mitochondrial dysfunction in cancer, loots of slides, rapid fire https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpNU72dny2s&t=2196s Excellent.  

Why are diseases of affluence and age rising 18 min 1,000 views in 6 month, Kate Jeffrey, claims that the diseases of autoinflammatory diseases allergies, MS,  enteritis, and type-1 diabetes, all up over 3-fold since 1950. Blames  epigenetics, absurd because the change is too recent for the genetics to have changed over 70 years.  Claims it is environmental changes are switched, need drugs to treat  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHAeR_VeU4I  skip

Nothing else on conditions associated with western diet.  However there are talks on the western diet. Pasted conditions associated with the western diet


3C Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease NAFLD and metabolic syndrome

***** What is metabolic syndrome, and why are children get it? 72 min, 52,000 views, Prof. Robert Lustig, like Sugar, The Bitter Truth, with over 7 million hits given to students; this is technical for researchers at Tufts University and goes at a faster pace. He shows the biology driving the pathologies is insulin resistance that causes on a high-fructose diet a fatty liver that causes the age-related conditions including diabetes, weight gain, ischemic events, dementia, arthritis, etc. Fructose is a liver poison.  Important to watch, even if too technical. The fix is to metabolize liver fat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEA6ow1icDc Excellent

There are dozens of diets, each supported by clinical trials, animal studies, and theory.  However, some clear evidence has emerged as to the good and bad of the western diet.  Before going on with recommendations, the analysis of Prof. Robert Lustig (Fat Chance Hudson Street Press, 2013) on the traditional Japanese diet (187-88) strongly supports his position that carbohydrates are fine if they aren’t highly processed and as long as sugars is limited.  If the carbs are highly refined (as with white rice of the Japanese) then sugar including fruits needs to be is severely limited.  “The traditional Japanese diet is polished rice (lots of carbohydrates), a little fish, some fermented soybeans [high salt], and lots of vegetables…. Even though it is high in carbs, the traditional Japanese diet works for four reasons:  First, there is virtually no sugar (15 grams per day) to promote insulin resistance, or fructose for glycation.  Second, the insulin rise caused by the glucose in the rice is gradual because of the slowed absorption from the fiber in their vegetables.  Third, the fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.  Four, their diet is high in micronutrients and antioxidants.  With their traditional diet, they have among the industrial nations the lowest rate of cardiovascular disease and obesity.  “Using fiber, as the antidote to carbohydrates, is the salvation of many a successful diet” (see chapter 12).  I would add that seasonal variation in fruits, permits the body to repair the damage fructose does to the liver and other organs, fasting during famines, periods of low carbs all contribute to those on a native diet having a low incidence of cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. 


[1] Colitis, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease should be treated the same.  Doctors are trained to make subtle distinctions, and to sculpture a treatment to their classification.  This in most cases is merely market ploy creating an aura of expertise and personal care.  Most of this is pure marketing dressed up as science.   

I switched to a 20 foot HDMI cable plugged into my laptop. I wasn't able to get sound with the HDMI cable, so I use a sound out jack on the laptop with a 20 foot cable which is plugged into the CD input on my stereo.  I now have sound on YouTube.  Two years ago Google made their Chromecast stop working with computers.  I waisted 2 days trying to fix the problem and call repeatedly Google's help line.  They didn't know of the change in service.    I have a saying for this "Fucking capitalist system". 

Google wants us to buy their products, the new Chromecast.  So I tried the Firestick by Amazon.   It sucks in that it wants you to subscribed to programs, so I re

I bought a Google Chromecast for $35. in 2015.  It allowed me to stream from my laptop to the television.  I have the laptop by the couch, and I have a stereo hooked up to the television.  I plugged the Chromecast into the HDMI outlet on the Sony Stereo.  The Sony is hooked up to my Vizio TV.   A much better experience than a computer monitor and small speakers or the TV’s tinny speakers.    Also allows me to show my family and friends documentaries on YouTube in the comfort of our living room.
