Recent research has identified daily use of aspirin or other NSAID’s with a significant increased risk of erectile dysfunction. The association of aspirin and other NSAID’s with erectile dysfunction began with a small study in Finland. The results seen in the Finland study were affirmed in a larger study conducted by Kaiser Permenente Los Angeles Medical Center. The results of these two studies contradicted commonly held beliefs about the cause of erectile dysfunction. (more…)
Over the past few years, soy has been hailed as a miracle health food. Unfortunately, the complete opposite is true. Soy has been linked to a myriad of health conditions such as infantile leukaemia, various forms of cancer, type-1 diabetes, malnutrition, thyroid dysfunction and even erectile dysfunction.
Research has shown that babies who have been fed soy-based formulas were at higher risk for developing type-1 diabetes and thyroid disease later in life. Soy-based formulas also contain up to 1000 times more aluminium than non soy-based formulas.
Environmental Medicine Doctor Chastised
Longtime environmental medicine expert Dr. William James Rea of Dallas, Texas, was disciplined by the Texas Medical Board at the end of August 2010.1 Rea has been a pioneer in developing techniques to diagnose and treat chemically and biologically sensitive patients. His clinic has focused on patients who are extremely sensitive to allergens, but not the allergens generally scrutinized by allergy specialists. Instead, Rea diagnoses sensitivity to petroleum and industrial chemicals, pesticides, and plasticizers, addressing the problem with strict protocols for avoidance of chemical exposure. Treatments do not rely on pharmaceuticals; instead, Rea administers desensitization therapies, usually in homeopathic dosing for the offending chemicals. In rare cases, patients are so sensitive that they need to be entirely removed from exposure to any chemicals. Rea, like other environmental medicine physicians, has advised some patients to confine themselves to special living units designed of plain metal and porcelain with fully filtered air and water.
