Consumer Health Digest #14-25
July 13, 2014

Consumer Health Digest is a free weekly e-mail newsletter edited by Stephen Barrett, M.D., with help from William M. London, Ed.D. It summarizes scientific reports; legislative developments; enforcement actions; news reports; Web site evaluations; recommended and nonrecommended books; and other information relevant to consumer protection and consumer decision-making.

Burzynski hit with massive amended complaint

The Texas Medical Board has filed a 202-page amended complaint against Stanislaw Burzynski, M.D. that adds to charges filed earlier this year. In January, the board charged that Burzynski's advertising was false, misleading, and violated federal law. The FDA permitted Burzynski to conduct clinical trials of substances he calls antineoplastons, which he claims are effective against certain cancers. But this did not give him the right to promote them through the Internet as safe and effective drugs. The amended complaint, which reviews Burzynski's management of seven patients, describes an alleged pattern of substandard care that included
(a) improperly accepting retainers prior to providing services,
(b) failing to adequately evaluate tumor status,
(c) lacking a plausible rationale for his drug regimens,
(d) failing to provide adequate informed consent,
(e) permitting unlicensed, unqualified individuals whom he misrepresented as doctors to treat patients,
(f) doing unnecessary tests,
(g) failing to keep adequate medical records,
(h) charging exorbitant prices for drugs and services, and
(i) billing insurance companies improperly.

Perforated colon suit settled

In 2013, Michael K. Imani, co-owner and clinical director of the Niles Wellness Center in Atlanta, Georgia, was sued by Jeff Kohn, whose large intestine (colon) was perforated during administration of colonic irrigation with a Colenz device at Imani's clinic. Kohn, who has Parkinson's disease, consulted Imani for help with constipation and underwent two colonic irrigation treatments at Imani's office. The amended complaint charged that:

During the second procedure, Kohn felt bloated and became increasingly uncomfortable. After he arrived home, the pain became unbearable and he called 911 and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital, where he was diagnosed with perforated colon and underwent emergency surgery that left him with a colostomy and required a lengthly period of rehabilitation.
Imani violated Georgia's Fair Business Practices Act by (a) advertising deceptively; (b) falsely representing that the clinic's equipment was FDA-approved, certified and/or registered; (c) making false representations about the benefits and safety of colon hydrotherapy.
Imani improperly referred to himself as "Dr. Imani" based on a "Ph.D. in clinical hypnosis" from a nonaccredited correspondence school.
Imani improperly referred to himself as "board certified" based on certification procedures that "were not awarded as a result of any expertise or his clinical excellence" and "were simply for sale to anyone."
Imani had been grossly negligent by failing to adequately respond when Kohn's life was in danger.
During his deposition, Imani testified that 20,000 irrigations had been done at his clinic and that he had undergone the procedure about 150 times. The suit was settled in 2014 with payment of an undisclosed sum.

Court upholds medical expert review of chiropractic records

The Kentucky Court of Appeals has upheld the ability of physicians to provide expert review and testimony in keeping with their full scope of practice and training. Two orthopedic surgeons were evaluating medical records for an auto insurance company (GEICO) to determine whether health care services provided to claimants were likely caused by injuries sustained in automobile accidents. In the underlying lawsuit, the Kentucky Board of Chiropractic Examiners had asserted that Kentucky's laws permit only chiropractors to perform expert review of records involving chiropractic services. A circuit court dismissed the suit on grounds that expert review and peer review have different purposes and that expert review is well within the scope of medical practice. Both courts concluded that the orthopedists were not evaluating the quality of the chiropractic care but were examining what had caused the claimed injuries. The Appeals Court's opinion and an AMA amicus brief have been posted to Casewatch.

Continuing request for help from Dr. Barrett

In June 2010, Doctor's Data, Inc. sued Dr. Barrett because it didn't like what he wrote about them on Quackwatch and in this newsletter. The events leading up to the suit are described at http://www.quackwatch.org/14Legal/dd_suit.html  In November, 2011, about half of the allegations were dismissed, but discovery was permitted for more than a year. The rest of the suit will be ripe for dismissal soon, but the proceedings have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even small donations, if sent by enough subscribers to this newsletter, will be very helpful. Contributions to the defense fund can be made by mail or through http://www.quackwatch.org/00AboutQuackwatch/donations.html

The German Football Team Uses Homeopathic Remedies

A study shows that, not only do most doctors who work for football teams in the top two German football leagues (Bundesliga 1 and 2) use homeopathic remedies to keep their players healthy and fit – so does the German national football team.

Part of winning any championship is dealing with injuries - or avoiding them in the first place.

A study shows that the German national team places unusual trust in natural healing over traditional medicine.

The study published on how German soccer docs treat aches and pains has revealed that Germany's faith is in homeopathy.

The study, carried out by researchers from Koblenz, found that almost all (92%) all of the doctors at German football league teams prescribe homeopathic cures.

The lead researcher, Peter Billigmann, when interviewed by Der Spiegel, said,

"The success stories are impressive .....homeopathic substances don't have any side effects, and we're on the safe side where doping is concerned."

The study also found that 60% of the team doctors also prescribed acupuncture.

"A study shows that the German national team places unusual trust in natural healing over traditional medicine." A study of why the soccer players believe that rubbish would reveal

a) the not very high intellectual capacity of soccer players (permanent impacts on the head damage the brain)

b) the soccer players use a lot of other mumbo-jumbo, lots of news articles dealt with that in the past decades


This claim "homeopathic substances don't have any side effects" is a known lie. In

Poll: Should pharmaceutical drug treatments be publicly funded by the NHS UK?
June 5, 2012 · homeopathy   

Authors
 Dr. Nancy Malik BHMS

Billions of pounds pumped in every year but the state and level of health of a UK citizen is not improving. Instead 10,000 people in Britain die each year due to adverse drug reaction and drug intoxication [1]. More and more people are queuing up for National Health Services (NHS). NHS is in need of reforms.

What’s wrong? Think about it!

UK can save lives & billions of £ if Conventional Allopathic Medicine (CAM) is removed from NHS.

Save Tax payers money. Don’t let it go down the drain.

    Which is more scientific: Allopathy or Homeopathy? - Page 61 - otherhealth.com linked to this post.

    You say “the state and level of health of a UK citizen is not improving”, but on what basis? Life expectancy has risen dramatically in recent decades, increasing by about 3 months per year last time I checked. Childhood diseases that were widespread when my parents were growing up are things of the past. Genuine question – what makes you say that health isn’t increasing? Where’s the evidence?

    The NHS should fund and supply whatever relevant treatments that are actually proven to work consistently above the level of a placebo, ie. those medications that have undergone and passed the extensive 3 phase clinical trial process, not most of the ‘alternative’ treatments.

    I was sent a link to this poll by Dr Malik, in what I can only assume was an attempt to sway my opinions about Homeopathy. I was prepared to come face-to-face with compelling arguments and plenty of information as to why pharmaceutical medication shouldn’t be funded on public money. I’m actually rather disappointed to find that this is nothing but empty statistics with NOTHING to back them up. I couldn’t possibly vote against public funding for pharmaceuticals when there are actual facts to prove that more people live longer and healthier lives because of it. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/mar/11/public-health-saving-lives-spending-less Publicly funded pharmaceutical treatments save lives. If that funding were cut, if the research could no longer be done to create new treatments, we would basically hurtle backwards. We have the ability to create amazing new ways of saving lives, of treating illnesses which ten years ago would have been fatal or unbearable. Pharmaceutical treatments have their problems, just the same as everything else, but the bigger picture must be observed and, contrary to this poll, the information MUST be presented correctly.

    Not from the NHS, but public funding of research would be a good idea as there wouldn’t be the shareholder pressure to get the ‘right’ result. Biotech companies could then bid to produce the end product under licence.

    The way the UK NHS is going, it will soon be bankrupt, and then they will not be able to afford expensive drugs anyway…..in comes homeopathy!! It’s only a matter of time, be patient.
    Most drugs don’t work in curing the problem – this is done so that the NHS keeps funding the prescriptions of expensive drugs untill the patient dies. There is a book written by Phillip Day – Health Wars. In this book he argues how the multinationals have a vested interest in keeping us ill because this is the only way that they will continue making mega-millions.

    NHS should leave on public descretion , to whom they want their treatment to be done, it may be Homoepathic , natural , alopathic or any other certified treatment , by doing this way the expenses of NHS would drastically reduce because other treatments including homeopathy is a lot cheaper than the (conventional ) alopathic treatments.

    I would have preferred the question – should studies of the safety and efficacy of pharmaceutical drugs be publicly funded and at arm’s length to the drug companies marketing the treatments. But surely, if public monies are being used to pay for treatments, they should be evidence based and most pharmaceutical products are not backed by independent evidence.

        I think the time has to come critically examine which of the conventional treatments are evidence-based and which are not.

    Hi Asim

    You think people should get the treatment they want?

    Great, I have a system of medicine that requires regular intake of Real Ale. Should I be able to have Real Ale funded by the NHS (complementary therapies include crisps and peanuts)?

    Hi Tony….

    I think you did not read the complete comment, it has mentioned “Certified Treatment” not the treatment you are doing sitting in your home…… Thanks

    Nancy, please be clear for everyone, the “Dr” is not an actual accredited medical doctor’s degree is it?

        The legal status of homeopathy medicine in India is on an equal footing with conventional [Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)], Ayurveda (recognised since 1969), Unani, and Siddha medicine since 1973. More details at http://drnancymalik.wordpress.com/about/

            So what you’re saying, Nancy, is that in the UK (the country at which this farce is aimed), no it is not a recognised accredited medical doctor’s degree.

    Poll: Which form of medicine would you prefer to use? – Science-based Homeopathy linked to this post.
    Manon Larose
    July 3, 2014

    We are not very scientific with our response to medicine and that is because we are not in a very scientific frame of mind when faced with pain or the prospect of dying. This is the reason why responses to questions on medication and vaccination solicit such violent vitriolic reactions (when is fact they should solicit thoughtful dialogue…).

    I don’t think there is any difference in the professional development of MDs or Homeopaths (or any other therapist for that matter). It goes a bit like “My medicine is the best, the only good medicine” followed by “Wow, I can’t cure everyone” and hopefully followed by “These are the conditions I can cure, these are the conditions I can relieve or palliate and these are the conditions that are beyond my scope of practice”.

    220 years of facts support evidence that Homeopathy is a safe, effective and inexpensive medicine. 100 years (give or take) support the fact that drugs and allopathic treatments deliver exactly what they promise: fast relief from unpleasant symptoms, and only symptoms. Sometimes this is enough but, particularly in chronic illness, it is seldom enough. The proof of that is that even though people are living longer (and this is certainly no ONLY due to the fact that we have more effective drugs), the third cause of death in the US is iatrogenic (due directly to the use of proper medication or therapeutic intervention) in one of the countries that has the most advanced allopathic medical system in the world. Also, far too many chronic illness sufferers end up on antidepressants or sleeping pills. This is not health. Being turned into an automaton on a had full of pills is not LIVING, it is existing.

    I am not even adverse in extremis to rendering a human being into an automaton temporarily if the goal is to save the life to then have time to return to health. But with the battle of the pharmaceutical industry to make increasing profits and the desperations of MDs to remain the only respectable medical practitioners, all this at the detriment of the patient’s wellbeing I draw the line.

    In medicine the only consideration is the patient’s wellbeing. Not our personal prejudice, not our cultural prejudice and certainly not ego or money. That is science, the rest… well, is not-science.

Parents warned against 'chickenpox parties'
Home » News » National
Sat, 12 Jul 2014

[...]
Michelle Bibby grimaces every time she hears about a chickenpox party after her daughter Isla ended up critically ill in Starship hospital in January 2010 with pneumonia and an enlarged heart and liver from chickenpox complications.

The virus lowered her immunity so drastically the 2-year-old developed a severe Staphylococcus aureus infection, causing the pneumonia and resulting in risky heart surgery.

"I would wake up every morning and think 'Is she dead?'," recalls Mrs Bibby, who wants varicella vaccine on the schedule.

The little girl was almost in heart failure with 250ml of fluid compressing her enlarged heart, and a liver five times larger than it should have been.

Surgeons found blisters filled with pus fused to her heart and had to scrape away the pericardium sac and douse the heart in antibiotics.

Isla's case was so extreme it was documented in the New Zealand Medical Journal where specialists questioned whether it was time for a universal chickenpox vaccine.

Her severe complications could have been avoided or vastly reduced if she had been vaccinated, even after initial exposure.

But the family were not advised to have the vaccine which has been a scheduled immunisation in the United States since 1995 and in Australia since 2005, where it has steadily reduced cases of the illness and hospital admissions.

Mit dem Lichtecho wird Unsichtbares sichtbar Forscher der Universität Bonn und aus Vancouver haben eine Kamera entwickelt, die um die Ecke sehen kann

Wissenschaftler der Universität Bonn und der University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Kanada) haben ein neuartiges Kamerasystem entwickelt, das ohne Spiegel um die Ecke sehen kann. Aus diffus reflektiertem Licht rekonstruiert es die Form von Objekten, die sich außerhalb des Blickfelds befinden. Die Forscher berichten bei der internationalen Konferenz für maschinelles Sehen und Mustererkennung (CVPR) vom 24. bis 27. Juni in Columbus (Ohio/USA) über ihre Ergebnisse.

Ein Laser leuchtet an die Wand; eine Kamera schaut dabei zu. Durch das Kameraobjektiv ist nichts weiter zu sehen als weiße Raufasertapete mit einem hellen Lichtfleck darauf. Ein Rechner nimmt diese zunächst unspektakulären Bilder auf und verarbeitet sie weiter, und allmählich zeichnen sich auf dem Bildschirm die Umrisse eines Gegenstands ab. Doch dieser Gegenstand befindet sich hinter einer Trennwand, und die Kamera kann ihn unmöglich so gesehen haben – offenbar haben wir also gerade um die Ecke geschaut. Ein Zaubertrick? „Nein“, sagt Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias B. Hullin vom Institut für Informatik II der Universität Bonn. „Es handelt sich um eine echte Rekonstruktion aus diffus gestreutem Licht. Unsere Kamera kombiniert mit einem mathematischen Verfahren versetzt uns gewissermaßen in die Lage, diese Wand in einen Spiegel zu verwandeln.“

Das Streulicht dient als Informationsquelle

Als die entscheidende Informationsquelle dient das Streulicht, das der Laserpunkt von der Wand aussendet. Auf Umwegen fällt dieses Licht wieder auf die Wand und schließlich in die Kamera. „Wir nehmen eine Art Lichtecho auf, also zeitaufgelöste Daten, aus denen wir das Objekt rekonstruieren können“, führt der Bonner Informatiker aus. „Ein Teil des Lichts ist auch mit dem unbekannten Gegenstand in Berührung gekommen und bringt so wertvolle Information über dessen Form und Aussehen mit.“ Um solche Echos messen zu können, bedarf es eines speziellen Kamerasystems, das Prof. Hullin zusammen mit seinen Kollegen an der University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Kanada) entwickelt und nach seinem Wechsel nach Bonn weiter verfeinert hat. Es zeichnet, anders als gewöhnliche Kameras, nicht nur die Richtung auf, aus der das Licht kommt, sondern auch, wie lange es von der Lichtquelle bis zur Kamera gebraucht hat.

Der technische Aufwand hierfür ist vergleichsweise gering – entsprechende Bildsensoren sind längst auf dem Massenmarkt angekommen. Man findet sie vor allem in Tiefenbildkameras, wie sie etwa zur Steuerung von Videospielen oder für Abstandsmessungen im Automobilbereich verwendet werden. Die eigentliche Herausforderung ist, solchen Laufzeitmessungen die gewünschte Information zu entlocken. Hullin vergleicht die Situation mit einem Raum, der so stark nachhallt, dass man sich nicht mehr mit seinem Gegenüber unterhalten kann: „Im Grunde messen wir nichts anderes als die Summe zahlreicher Lichtreflexionen, die auf verschiedensten Wegen in die Kamera gelangt sind und sich dort überlagern.“

Dieses Problem ist als Multipfad-Interferenz bekannt und bereitet Ingenieuren seit Langem Kopfzerbrechen. In der Regel wird versucht, die unerwünschte Multipfad-Streuung zu entfernen und lediglich den direkten Anteil des Signals zu verwenden. Basierend auf einem ausgeklügelten mathematischen Modell entwickelten Hullin und seine Kollegen hingegen ein Verfahren, das die gewünschten Informationen ausschließlich aus dem Störanteil des Signals gewinnen kann. Da dieser auch von Gegenständen herrührt, die sich überhaupt nicht im Blickfeld befinden, können die Forscher so quasi Unsichtbares sichtbar machen.

Minimaler technischer Aufwand und intelligente Programmierung

„Die Genauigkeit unseres Verfahrens hat natürlich ihre Grenzen“, sagt Prof. Hullin – noch beschränken sich die Ergebnisse auf grobe Umrisse. Der Forscher geht allerdings davon aus, dass aufgrund der rasanten Entwicklung technischer Bauteile und mathematischer Methoden bald eine noch höhere Auflösung erreicht werden kann. Zusammen mit seinen Kollegen wird er das Verfahren bei der internationalen Konferenz für maschinelles Sehen und Mustererkennung (CVPR) vom 24. bis 27. Juni in Columbus (Ohio/USA) vorstellen. Das Interesse an der neuen Technologie ist groß – Hullin hofft, dass sich ähnliche Ansätze auch etwa in der Telekommunikation, der Fernerkundung und der medizinischen Bildgebung verwenden lassen.

Dieser 8 1/2 Jahre alte Thread hat mit großem Abstand die meisten Leser gehabt.

Aber innerhalb der letzten Monate erwies sich aus völlig unbekannten Gründen ein nur 3 Jahre alter Thread plötzlich zu einem Durchstarter und ist seit heute mittag die neue Nummer 1.

Woher die vielen Surfer kommen,  ist nicht zu sehen. Wir können nur noch staunen.

Have you ever seen a grown elephant cry? This photo is a reminder to all that elephants have strong emotional lives and they have the ability to suffer deeply. This photo was taken of Raju when the rescue mission first began. He had a flood of tears from his eyes when our team first moved in to secure his freedom Some would question that Raju was truly weeping. However, our team that witnessed this moment know differently. This photo is shared at this moment not with the intention of depressing everybody, but with the hope that we can use it as an educational tool to enlighten others that elephants around the world need our help.
