The Biggest Healthcare Mistakes & Misdirections By Bill Sardi
What is the biggest healthcare mistake? Taking calcium pills to ward off bone loss (osteoporosis) among females.
A shortage of estrogen induces loss of bone, not a shortage of calcium; estrogen replacement or molecules that mimic estrogen (resveratrol) are appropriate.
What is the biggest health misdirection? Phobia over fat and cholesterol

Vitamin C and later accompanying apple pectin were described by Slovakian researcher Emil Ginter in 1971 as cholesterol lowering agents that work by inducing cholesterol disposal via bile flow (bile is composed of cholesterol) years before the marketing of the first statin cholesterol lowering drug (Mevacor) that was ineffective at reducing coronary artery disease mortality rates but was allowed by the FDA to continue sale by prescription as more powerful statin drugs were later introduced. Even though statin drugs only prevent non-mortal heart attacks in 3 in 100 statin users over a period of 5 years, doctors told patients they would die of a sudden heart attack if they didn’t take their statin drug. Fear reigned and dietary fats that are needed to make cholesterol in the liver were avoided resulting in an explosion in the incidence of infertility, mental depression, memory loss, hormonal collapse (thyroid, adrenal) and muscle aches. Statin drugs are liver toxins that require monitoring by a physician.
What is best to take after a heart attack? Aged red wine or red wine pill
What are the five greatest nutritional deficiencies not correctable by the best diet?
Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Zinc, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D
What is the worst health insurance plan one can buy? ObamacareThe Science Of Intermi...Connor ThompsonBest Price: $12.02Buy New $16.02(as of 12:05 EST - Details)
Obamacare only pays the bills, no one is any healthier; it forces the young to pay for insurance when they are healthy, thus producing pure profit for the insurance companies and robs the young of purchasing a car or a home
What are the most feared words in healthcare? Cancer, blindness, Alzheimer’s
Three maladies modern medicine has no cures for; but since there is treatment, this fact does not dawn upon patients as they pray they will be the exception and be cured. In the minds of patients, even if treatment is ineffective, it is better than doing nothing. On the day cancer is diagnosed, 50% of cases have already spread beyond the site of origin (metastasis, the mortal form of the disease) for which there is no effective treatment.
Chemotherapy does not penetrate solid tumors which comprise ~70% of detected cancers. Chemotherapy shrinks tumors by 50% and then invariably induces tumor resistance. Chemotherapy impairs the immune system and the cancer patient is then “sh_t out of luck.”
It is said there are only three therapies that are scientifically validated. What are they?
The treatment and repair of broken bones
The replacement of a cloudy crystalline lens (cataract) with a clear lens implant
The filling of dental cavities (aside from fluoridation to marginally harden tooth enamel, there is no real prevention of dental decay which emanates from a bacterial infection; acid-forming Streptococcus mutans infection induces cavities; refined sugar feeds the growth of the bacteria in the oral cavity). Vitamin D hardens dental enamel but goes ignored by modern dentistry; cavities occur in winter when vitamin D levels are low.
The use of a teaspoon to tablespoon of elderberry syrup 4-5 times a day helps to soothe a sore throat and shortens a bout with a head cold by about 4 days. [Journal International Medical Research 2004]
Anecdotal: 50,000 IU of vitamin D3 often stops a runny nose almost immediately
What is missing in the discussion about health promotion? Prevention
What is the most overlooked cure? Myricetin for alcoholism
This polyphenol derived and extracted from the raisin tree blocks the GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) receptor on the surface of brain cells, interfering with the somnolent effects of alcohol and retraining brain cells via epigenetic imprinting to break the addictive craving for alcohol.
What foods would do the most to produce healthy gut bacteria? Fermented foods
What would be the best way to lower healthcare costs in America?
Allow dietary supplements to claim they remedy diseases, at least dietary deficiency diseases such as scurvy (vitamin C); rickets/winter depression (vitamin D); beriberi / heart failure/ irregular heart rhythm (thiamin vitamin B1); pellagra (niacin); pernicious anemia/ fatigue, short-term memory loss (vitamin B12); weak immunity (zinc for T cells); hypothyroidism-conversion of T4 to T3 (selenium); anti-clotting properties of garlic, fish oil, resveratrol.
What is the best health insurance one can buy? A multivitamin
Carl F. Rehnborg developed the first multivitamin in the 1930s and began selling MVs as the California Vitamin Co. that was later renamed Nutrilite. His experiences in China where he observed massive nutrient deficiencies led him to develop a vitamin business.
What is the most costly mistake health-minded Americans make? Buying multivitamins that don’t work
Pharmaceutical companies own the two best-selling economical multivitamins that ensure the public never gets the nutrients they need to maintain health. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), Reference Daily Intake (RDI) and Daily Value were established for healthy individuals, not people experience physical or emotional stress, drug depletion of vitamins, diminished secretion of stomach acid with advancing age (poor absorption), diabetes, tobacco smoking, alcohol consumption; 100% of the Daily Value gives a false sense of security that consumers are getting all the nutrients they need to maintain health. Most multivitamins on store shelves have not been scientifically updated in years.
Looking toward the future, what would be the single most important advancement in the expansion of human healthspan and lifespan? Restoration of the human body’s ability to internally synthesize vitamin C. This idea is now being commercialized.
