ENDNOTE: Yet physicians in the US are still busily manning the ambulances at the bottom of the cliff instead of building fences at the top

Flashback Friday: Evidence-Based Medicine or Evidence-Biased?
Michael Greger M.D. FACLM  June 7th, 2019  

*** begin quote ***

Evidence-based medicine may ironically bias medical professionals against the power of dietary intervention.

*** and ***

Dr. Esselstyn’s landmark study showing even advanced triple vessel coronary artery disease could be reversed with a plant-based diet has been criticized for being such a small study. But the reason we’re used to seeing such large studies is they typically show such small effects. Drug manufacturers may need to study 7,000 people in order to show a barely statistically significant 15% drop in ischemic events in a subsample of patients, whereas Esselstyn got a 100% drop in those who stuck to his diet—all the more compelling given that those 18 participants experienced “49 coronary events [such as heart attacks] in the 8 years before” they went on the diet. And these were the worst of the worst—most of whom having already failed surgical intervention. So, when the effects are that dramatic, how many people do you need?

Yes, switching to a whole-food plant-based dies is tough.  But the alternative is so bleak that it should be in a horror movie.  “We, The Sheeple” have been brainwashed into a meme that kills and cripples us.  

This doctor advocates going vegan, but he does urge even any change is better than no change.  

If you don’t believe it, just look at the death and disease rates in pre- and post- World War 2 Japan, Okinawa, China, and certain African countries like Uganda.  Or the examples in the US of the Seventh Day Adventists, who are vegan non-smoker non-drinkers.  So it can be done!

I’ve changed my diet.  Not nearly as much as I want to.  Having just received some “bad” medical news (i.e., some marginal chemistry numbers and a heart murmur), I have become more diligent about my diet and exercise. 

Maybe if the public was more aware, a lot of literal heart ache could be avoided.

I’ve begun asking restaurants for their “vegan menu”. Laugh!  After a strange stare and an admission they don’t have one, I pick the “least bad option”.  You can get a vegetable fajita that almost a good a steak; you just have to pretend that the carrots are steak. Laugh!  YMMV!

Alia Flanigan has always been intrigued by travel, and the different customs and flavors the world has to offer. And now that she has been awarded a prestigious Fulbright scholarship, she will get to experience even more of the world outside the cozy confines of Riverdale.

Flanigan, a former member of the women’s rowing team at Manhattan College who graduated last month, will head to the other side of the world come January to teach English to high school students as part of the Fulbright Program.

She applied to the U.S. government-funded program with a “statement of purpose” and a grant proposal. “I got awarded an English teaching assistant grant. So I’m going for 10 months to Malaysia and I’ll help the English teachers there. There is also a community engagement project I’ll be involved with on the weekends and after school, so it will be very busy.”

Baldwinite leaves for Ethiopia
Timothy Koch to serve in the Peace Corps
Posted June 14, 2019

*** begin quote ***

The skills that he develops “will give him a competitive edge when he returns home,” Fidler said. “Peace Corps volunteers return from service as global citizens well-positioned for professional opportunities in today’s global market.”

Koch earned a degree in government and politics and philosophy from Manhattan College and a master’s in international affairs from The New School. He interned with the United Nations Development Programme, as well as the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV and AIDS in Thailand.

He said it’s a common misconception that “you sign up [for the Peace Corps] and then you’re good to go.” He went through what he called a strenuous application process to be accepted into the corps, which required that he submit essays and be interviewed. He also had to be cleared — medically and legally. While he had already received most of his vaccines, he had to have the yellow fever shot to travel to Ethiopia.
