People who get more of their protein from plant sources have an overall lower mortality risk than those who consume more animal protein, according to research published online August 1, 2016, in JAMA.

Mingyang Song, MD, ScD, a nutrition research fellow with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, and colleagues analyzed data from two large US studies that regularly tracked participants’ diets during as much as 3 decades of follow-up. The studies involved 131 342 individuals whose daily calorie intake averaged 14% animal protein and 4% plant protein.

Rio Olympics Fail on Sustainability

Filed under: Health News — Tags: , , — admin @ 4:25 PM

Rio Olympics Fail on Sustainability

Rio

http://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/38452-6-ways-the-rio-olympics-are-failing-on-sustainability

Brazil wooed the International Olympic Committee with promises of sustainability when it made its bid in 2009 for Rio to host the games, but it hasn’t followed through on those pledges. From waters teeming with pathogens to transportation troubles, the Rio Olympics are looking like a hot mess. Of course, lots of past Olympics looked disastrous just before they kicked off too.

There’s something in the water

Athletes have been advised to keep their mouths closed when swimming or sailing, as Olympic waters have been found to have virus levels 1.7 million times higher that what would be considered worrisome in the U.S.

Rio constructed barriers to keep trash out of the main areas where events are being held, but that won’t stop the sewage and pathogens from floating in (though they might stop body parts from washing ashore).

A transportation nightmare

Rio’s traffic is so bad (it’s the fourth most congested city in the world) that members of the International Olympic Committee are already regretting the decision to hold the games there. A $3 billion subway extension was massively delayed and has just barely opened. Earlier this year, a new bike path constructed for the games collapsed, raising safety concerns.

Scary diseases

Even though Zika infection rates are slowing down because it’s winter in Brazil, there are plenty of diseases and illnesses to worry about, including dengue fever, rotavirus, norovirus, and hepatitis A. Oh, and as if that’s not already enough, drug-resistant super bacteria.

Injustice to residents

An estimated 77,000 people have been evicted from their homes to make way for infrastructure for the games, and entire neighborhoods have been bulldozed.

Clashes with critters

The controversial Olympics golf course was built in a sensitive coastal area, and environmentalists say it destroyed habitat and harmed native plants and animals, including endangered species. But it didn’t drive all the animals away: The golf course is still teeming with wildlife like capybaras, sloths, boa constrictors, and miniature crocodiles, so organizers have hired five handlers to keep potentially dangerous critters away from players during game time.

Shoddy construction

The Olympics require a vast amount of construction in a short amount of time, and that’s led to buildings that aren’t up to code. Haphazard construction has already caused gas leaks, a small fire, and plumbing mishaps in the Olympic Village. Conditions have prompted some athletes to stay in hotels or luxury cruise ships instead.

Most Brazilians think the 2016 Olympics will do more harm than good. Judging by what we’ve seen so far, the average Brazilian citizen just might be smarter than the Olympic organizers.

How Big Pharma Bribes Doctors to Sell Drugs

Filed under: Health News — Tags: , , — admin @ 2:58 PM

How Big Pharma Bribes Doctors to Sell Drugs

At the 2010 meeting of the American Psychiatric Association, a psychiatrist shared her anger about the recent clamp down on Pharma financial perks to doctors, stating: “They used to wine us and dine us. An SSRI maker flew my entire office to a Caribbean island…but now nothing”.

She was right. Before news organizations and the 2010 Physician Financial Transparency Reports (The Sunshine Act of the Affordable Care Act) reported the outrageous amount of money Pharma was giving doctors.

Drugs

http://theinfluence.org/you-wont-believe-the-outrageous-ways-big-pharma-has-bribed-doctors-to-shill-drugs/

By 2010, much of the over-the-top Pharma largesse had ended, because practically every major drug company from GlaxoSmithKline Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cephalon, & Purdue had settled a wrongdoing suit.

Ways Pharma get drugs into your medicine cabinet:

  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield said that Pfizer jetted 5,000 doctors to resorts where they enjoyed massages, golf and more to increase prescriptions for its painkiller Bextra—a drug that proved so unsafe it was withdrawn from the market in 2005 for heart risks.
  • The Justice Department charged that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) “paid millions to doctors to promote Wellbutrin, approved at the time for depression, for off-label uses by funding meetings”.  According to CBS Off-labels ignore FDA approved indications.
  • In China, GSK employed a network of 700 middlemen, travel agencies and sex workers to convince doctors to prescribe its drugs.
  • Johnson & Johnson wined and dined Texas Medicaid officials; treating them to trips & perks to get its antipsychotic drug Risperdal to be paid by taxpayers. Taxpayers were bilked by the Department of Veterans Affairs expenditure of $717 million only to discover the drug worked no better than a placebo.
  • Bristol-Myers Squibb enticed doctors to prescribe its drugs with access  and luxury box suites for games at the LA Lakers
  • Victory Pharma was charged with treating doctors to mortgage assistance and lap dances.
  • Pharma paid for Continuing Medical Education courses (CME) that are required for doctors to keep their state licenses and insurance. Until transparency laws, CME course materials did not even hide Pharma funding. Pharma then used CMEs for damage control when dentists, oral surgeons and patients began seeing “jawbone death” from the popular bone drugs called bisphosphonates. Pharma told doctors it was not the drugs but patients’ poor “hygiene” that was causing the serious side effects.

Doctors may not get to go to the Caribbean as they once did, but they still make a huge amount of money from Pharma by giving speeches promoting its drugs. The speech-givers, who sit on Pharma’s speakers’ bureaus, are considered “key opinion leaders,” capable of convincing other doctors to prescribe the drug.

According to ProPublica, Sujata Narayan, a family medicine doctor practicing in Stanford, CA earned an astounding $43.9 million promoting drugs for Pharma. Karen Underwood, a pediatric critical care doctor in Scottsdale, AZ received a walloping $28 million. Moreover, hospitals are also awash in Pharma money with the City Of Hope National Medical Center receiving $361 million and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation $22 million.

An editorial accompanying the JAMA Internal Medicine study said, “There are inherent tensions between the profits of health care companies, the independence of physicians and the integrity of our work, and the affordability of medical care. If drug and device manufacturers were to stop sending money to physicians for promotional speaking, meals and other activities without clear medical justifications and invest more in independent bona fide research on safety, effectiveness and affordability, our patients and the health care system would be better off.”
