1) SERM deficiency
2) Statin Deficiency

5) Asthma That Requires "Two Drugs"

Hey stretch, how does it feel to know you're part of a movement endangering the well being of others?

See the thread here:
http://forums.canadiancontent.net/ho...gers-west.html

As to the bunk you're peddling:
1) Osteoporosis, not invented. Very real. At least 30 known genes associated with the disease. The correlation with age has causative factors, as hormonal effectiveness/production decrease with age, and are involved directly in the pathways of bone resorption and formation.

2) Statin deficiency, not invented. It's an enzyme co-factor, which means when your bodies 2 grams of total statins are not being replenished (again, with age the replenishment goes down, didn't you ever wonder why we die, our bodies don't work efficiently forever...) that it's systems which maintain bodily function are becoming stressed.

Think of cholesterol problems which progress with age, that's statin deficiency for you...that's not to say that there aren't side effects. That's why patients need good health care, doctors, pharmacists, etc. to discuss these things with them.

3) Circadian dysrhythmia...this is actually ironic. Surely you've felt jet lag? Imagine those who fly all over the world for business, like many in the Pharmaceutical industry do. There's nothing invented about this, except to say that it wouldn't happen if we still lived, ate, hunted, slept, in the same place all day, for your whole life. We used to do that, when we chased down our food, and lived to be about 30 years old. Probably not going to win many folks with that one Stretch...

4) Adult autism...seriously? What's the issue? I know the anti-vax folk like to forget about better recognition of illness as a factor in the rise of autism, but this is getting ridiculous.

The rest is more of the same. It's retarding the progress we've made. Maybe you don't know anyone who dies of mumps, or measles, but it's folks like you Stretch that are helping to make that a reality once more in the wealthy West.

For shame.

geesh... my hubby struggled all day, every day, to breathe right, until Symbicort came along. So nice to know it's a 'fraud', and just an 'invented' disease.

With about 47,000 diseases (and more showing up every day) why would Pharmacare invent more. I guess about half of what keeps the news business lucrative is there are lots of people who will believe any bullsh*t

Stretch, you come up with the funniest nonsense sometimes. Thanks for the giggles.

AlterNet. Great. We have mainstream newsmedia editorialising stories as "news" and crackpot media editorialising stories as "news", too.
*Hums the tune to Monty Python's "Spin"..... er "Spam"* I mean. lmao

DEFINITION OF AD/HD:
AD/HD is a diagnosis applied to children and adults who consistently display certain characteristic behaviors over a period of time. The most common core features include:
  • distractibility (poor sustained attention to tasks)
  • impulsivity (impaired impulse control and delay of gratification)
  • hyperactivity (excessive activity and physical restlessness)
nothing a good smack would've fixed....be honest.

think back to when you were in school...I'm 55, I remember talking in class, getting a whack with a steel rule up against the leg from a teacher coming up from behind......definite end to attention deficit disorder syndrome, not today tho'....I cant kick ya up the arse like ya deserve....but I can give mind altering substances as prescribed/required, by government..........go figer..........oh, and you'll need them for life

Purely BS you mean.

Amish do indeed get autism. These groups also tend to visit doctors less, so the lower rates associated are more likely to be due to the infrequent medical attention.

Modern medicine will be phased out, in favour of Wack Doctors.

"Doc it hurts when I do this."
"Well don't do that you idiot!" - WACK!!

"Doc, my son can't concentrate in school. Can you.."
WACK!! "You little bastard, get your act together!"

A few facts would be nice. By all means, if you are an adult (questionable) feel free not to be vaccinated.
That way we can watch with glee as you are more likely to be removed from the gene pool; you are obviously already at the shallow end.
Big Pharma which of course exists only in the minds of paranoid Middle School dropouts is very far from perfect. That said they are indispensable.
I have to assume you don't believe in vaccines for such things as diphtheria, scarlett fever, meningitis, measles, pneumonia, rubella, polyeomyelitis, HPV,etc.,etc.?

You should join our fruitcake religious anti-semitic twit. A rubber room is a'waiting.

You two seem like a match made in heaven.
