"They need this extra care because they do not take proper care of their personal health. You can personally do more than the entire government toward solving the health crisis and the cost of medical care—simply by taking care of yourself and decreasing your own costs of health care. While the government can do little to solve the larger health crisis, there is much that you can do for yourself that will have a far greater impact on your own health than any government program."

"Manufacturers are not required to provide proof of the safety of any personal care or cosmetic ingredient, let alone its effectiveness, to the government or anyone else. Safety is the responsibility of manufacturers; the FDA allows them to use their own judgment about whether a product is safe or not, in effect putting them on the "honor system." As should be clear from the evidence presented in this book, the FDA's presumption that industry will exercise responsibility is naive at best and negligent at worst."

"And nothing much has changed over the three decades since, except that the health threats have multiplied and the cosmetics and personal care industry has grown much wealthier and considerably more powerful and skillful at sabotaging attempts to educate consumers about the safety of what they put on their bodies. The FDA's regulatory failure is further detailed in several of my books, including the The Safe Shopper's Bible."

"In spite of possible hazards, the personal care industry still makes extensive use of penetration enhancers, as we've discussed in chapters 8 and 9. Penetration enhancers fall into four major categories: Gentle Detergents; Harsh Detergents; Hydroxy Acids; and the unrelated but much more hazardous Nanoparticle Ingredients. 1. Gentle Detergents. The most common penetration enhancers in use are the gentle detergents monoethanolamine, diethanolamine, and triethanolamine, which are also used as emulsifiers and thickeners. They facilitate the absorption of other ingredients through the skin."

"Rosen, there are also concerns about what's known as "standard of care." If a pediatrician actively advises a family to vaccinate on a schedule that differs from the AAP/CDC recommendations and the child contracts an infectious disease like meningitis, then the parents could sue the pediatrician, and they'd probably win. That's why parents who prefer this slower vaccine schedule might first have to sign a waiver. But even if these precautions require a little more legwork (and doctor's visits) on your part, they are absolutely worth the extra time and effort."

"Susan Sencer, who directs the integrative cancer care program at Children's Hospitals and Clinics, Minneapolis-St. Paul, mentioned the "Knudson theory" of cancer causation. She explained: "This theory states that many cancers, and especially childhood cancers, take at least two hits—meaning you could be genetically predisposed but you must also have at least one other exposure to develop cancer. It's not enough to be born with the genes—you must also take at least one other hit. Of course, we don't know what the nature of the 'hit' is."

"Because kids with arthritis can't always express their pain, they may not get diagnosed properly or receive the right care and treatment for it. And, Dr. Kimura said, the "earlier you treat arthritis, the better your outcome—the more likely you'll have a healthy joint for the rest of your life, as opposed to a destroyed joint." When I asked Dr. Kimura what's behind these increases, she told me that doctors don't yet know exactly. "It's an autoimmune disease, and no one knows what causes it," she said."

"In our search for healthier, more holistic ways to take care of our children, we're placing a greater emphasis on diet and nutrition as well. In this particular respect, we have a long way to go. Just look at the food served in typical hospitals: artificially processed, high in additives, salt, sugar and artificial sweeteners, and trans fatty acids. We already know how important a healthy whole-foods diet is in maintaining our kids' health. So why are we feeding kids who are already sick food that does nothing to heal their ailing bodies? If anything, this food only creates more problems. Dr."

"In my view you have put together an excellent team of people for endocrine care. I don't think it would be good for the business if this team is broken up. I am very pleased with the way Peter Rost is handling the business. He has a very good reputation among the endocrine community. The recent affair with Wyeth has not weakened his position in Europe. On the contrary. He is perceived as a very honest business man. We need, in my opinion, this kind of leadership in business."7 Pfizer and Pharmacia Respond None of that kind of support would help when it came to my future with Pfizer."

"Templeman is a primary care physician with 20 years experience. He is board certified in both the United States and Canada. "I have been using a Mangosteen functional beverage with my patients long enough to draw valid clinical conclusions about its effectiveness in many medical conditions. Initially, I used it as a fallback product only when the regular medicines I prescribed proved ineffectual."

"As a well person over the age of fifty, how will you contend with your friend's sense of triumph at undergoing a screening colonoscopy, the common wisdom that it makes sense, the likely recommendation of your primary care physician, and the complicity of the gastroenterology community with this sophistry? As for me, I'll pass on an fobt and forgo screening colonoscopy. I did submit in my mid-fifties to a flexible sigmoidoscopy, performed because of complications from a ruptured appendix. There were no abnormalities, so I know I am very unlikely to die before my time from colorectal cancer."

"The topic roils with gender issues, even though it is now widely recognized that no one should be deprived of high-quality care for any reason, including gender and ethnic origins. However, the outcry to redress the gender issues by providing empathic and effective remedies carries an inherent hazard. We need to address past wrongs, but ill-thought-out attempts to do so may not benefit those who justly feel poorly served."

"It all sounded fantastic but, of course, couldn't get round the fact that most people appreciate a doctor and a bit of care and attention, especially when ill. As author Madeline Bunting observed, 'The central tenet of consumerism is choice; when you're ill, you don't have the strength to make complicated choices. You want a relationship of trust and mutual respect in which someone very experienced and knowledgeable helps to make you better.'15 Nevertheless, the idea of having a greater say in health decisions is compelling. The Internet has made this possible."

"When Olivieri found the drug wasn't as good as she first thought, she wanted to publish her findings and inform the patients in her care of its apparent dangers. But a clause in her contract gave Apotex sole right to communicate the data for a year after the trial had ended. The hospital began an inquiry ... astonishingly, she was fired. All this went on while the university was itself engaged in discussions with Apotex about a $12.7 million donation by the company to the University of Toronto. The president of the university was lobbying the Canadian government on behalf of Apotex."

"In exchange for their efforts, these people were well taken care of. The company had a small store with dry cleaning pick-up, postal services, and a spacious cafeteria serving everything from gourmet sandwiches to a fresh salad bar, ice cream, pizzas, and high-quality Mexican, Italian, and American cuisine. They even had a fashionable gym on the premises, where employees enervated by long meetings could work out and refresh. In December, employees could choose from a range of corporate gifts, from DVD players to small television sets."

"The Stockholm and Malmo trials added screening mammography to usual care. There are at least four other scientific studies testing the same hypothesis, but they are less compelling because of less-powerful designs. These trials are of interest, but the randomized controlled trials supersede them. The Canadian trial enrolled some 50,000 women aged forty to forty-nine and 39,000 women aged fifty to fifty-nine. The enrolment occurred between 1980 and 1985. All these women were examined at the inception of the cohort and received instruction on breast self-examination."

"The Endocrine care franchise has a legal exposure to the following: a. Distribution of a misbranded drug into interstate commerce (21 U.S.C., Sec 331, 333, 352). b. Violation of FDCA to distribute human growth hormone for off-label use. c. Fraud and Abuse issues including Anti-kickback statute and False Claims. Pharmacia has for more than five years been actively promoting Genotropin for off-label usage, mainly for anti-aging purposes. For growth hormone this is a felony. Genentech settled a similar case for their human growth hormone related to same issues during 1985-1994 for $50 million."

"In the very near future, glucose monitoring will likely be done through a device connected directly to the insulin pump and the whole process will likely be almost completely taken care of by computerized electronics. Although serious hypoglycemia is less likely to occur with the new immediate- and very-long-acting insulins, one of the goals of this therapy is, of course, to keep blood sugars under tight control. Because of this, serious hypoglycemia is still a risk and diabetics must become very adept at recognizing hypoglycemia and acting to correct it as soon as possible."

"From Our Patient Files Susan was 24 when I began to see her for regular diabetic care. Already a type 1 diabetic for 10 years, Susan was frustrated with her "brittle" diabetes. Although she wanted to achieve better blood sugar control—her hemoglobin A,C was usually over 9.5 percent and her daily blood sugars were often over 250 mg/dL (14 mmol/L)—if she tried to keep her blood sugars lower with increased insulin dosages, she would often become hypoglycemic."

"For example, if a child was found to have a high genetic risk for type 2 diabetes, special care could be taken to help that child become and remain athletic, to eat an optimal diet, and to maintain normal body composition. Already certain labs are offering genetic risk profiling for some conditions through the measurement of simple risk factor genes known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, pronounced "snips"). Labs such as Genovations (www.genovations."

"If, for example, in the physician's best medical judgment a patient has a disease of a certain complexity that would benefit from an extraordinary amount of care, the physician has to weigh whether provision of and billing for that extraordinary amount of care will increase his risk of being audited by Medicare."

"Officially, I was still the vice president for the endocrine care franchise; Pfizer hadn't changed my title. And while Pfizer had written that, "After the close, your job responsibilities will be the same as they are now until we notify you of a change,"31 most definitely had nothing to do anymore. I was like the leader of a deserted island. Some of my cohabitants had perished; others had left in lifeboats. Now I and my trusted lieutenant remained, in permanent exile. No one called us, no one contacted us. It just remained eerily quiet."

"Then he read a report which said that in the US, the extra hospital costs to monitor the patient in an intensive care unit, and supply fluids, pressors and drugs to counteract the toxic side effects -sickness, capillary leak syndrome, heart attacks, cardiac arrhythmia and infection - bring the final bill to more than $50,000.27 Although he was not being asked to contribute to the hospital costs, he chose to die a few months earlier but at home surrounded by all the many comforts a loving family can afford."

"Neel stresses that: "If I can get the drug therapy management correct, there are fewer hospital stays, fewer hospital admissions, lower labor costs involved in care and a better quality of life for residents." Certainly a tremendous benefit, if he could just get the doctors' cooperation, which according to Neel seldom happens. For each patient that Neel evaluates, he types up his recommendations for what he considers are properly prescribed medications, according to Neel, the medical director rejects his recommendations almost without exception."

"In one trial, the care trial, breast cancer rates of those taking a statin went up 1500 percent. The medical literature contains several reports of pancreatitis in patients taking statins.

"As I often state, just provide an adequate supply of nutrients, and your body can very efficiently take care of the details. Unfortunately, medications not only deplete the necessary nutrients, but also intervene, and thus disrupt many normal processes (with their inhibiting actions), basically fighting our body's efforts every step of the way. The reason I placed mangosteen at the top of my list is: • It doesn't interact with medications. • As you can see, it appears to be very effective at stabilizing blood sugar."
