Dr. Phil – Kissing Issue Posted on April 11th, 2012
I am a big fan of Dr. Phil. He’s probably the most well-known mental health professional in the world, and a leader in daytime talk. He is a tell-it-like-it-is kind of guy who encourages his guests and audiences to “get real.” But I take exception to Dr. Phil kissing his grandchildren on the mouth.
Last Friday you’ll have to watch the replay of the cutest show with Dr. Phil and his adorable grandchildren. All is well until “pops” gives his two year-old granddaughter Avery, a kiss – right on the mouth. By now you’re probably calling me old-fashioned, a prude, germ-phobic, too rigid etc. But kissing little ones on the mouth is not a good idea, because it spreads germs. I was raised in a medical family. My father and grandfather were both doctors and my mom was a dietician! We were taught to be aware of the spread of germs from one person to another. It is one thing for a husband and wife to kiss each other on the mouth – and good thing too! But kissing a child on the mouth has some obvious ramifications. I am sure Dr. Phil as healthy as he is, is unlikely to be on medication. But what if he, like millions of people, was on heart medication, hormones, such as testosterone, or thyroid medication? Any of these medications could affect the child. I know of one family who discovered their child developed thyroid issues because Grandpa, who was on a high-dose thyroid medication, was kissing junior on the mouth! So Dr. Phil, please keep kissing your grandbabies – yes, but on their little rosy cheeks! Don’t miss the segment – it’s adorable!
Finally…… Sugar Feeds Cancer! Posted on April 2nd, 2012
After being a voice in the dark for several decades about cancer cells being glucose supported, we finally hear it from the big boys. CNN’s health expert, Dr. Sanjy Gupta nails it with his recent CBS 60 Minutes interview with a number of top researchers who all blame sugar for the increased incidence of Adult Onset Diabetes, heart disease and …even cancer! I have been on the forefront of the alternative health movement for almost thirty years and I have been preaching to anyone who would listen, that sugar feeds cancer cells. In fact in 2003, I did a reading for one of the top researchers from one of the nation’s biggest pharmaceutical companies that produces many of the chemotherapeutic agents in circulation today. She concurred that “Yes, cancer cells are glucose supported but this fact is not widely discussed outside of scientific circles.” Why not? This piece of information could punch a huge hole in the lucrative cancer industry. But, because a cancer cell contains 16 more insulin receptors sites, it is proof that any fast growing cell needs sugar to grow and proliferate. Wake up people, cut down on the sugar and keep yourselves out of the cancer zone! Sugar (sucrose), fructose, high fructose corn syrup, alcohol, honey, maple syrup, processed fruit juice, and even agave nectar, are all sugars and they act in exactly the same way. Good idea to keep these sugar consumption to a minimum, and now this is confirmed by newsmakers.
