At age 16 I was a volunteer at a hospital bacteriology lab. I became a chemist for U.S. government. Then I studied health & related fields.

Here are Recent Health Breakthroughs or Discoveries

First we will go over some not so recent discoveries in health so you can know the significance of recent health breakthroughs. Modern medicine has nothing to do with health or disease. Then what does it have to do with? It has to do with the same thing that any business has to do with-- making money.

It is just like amazon,com is not a company that sells books. It used to be. Now it is selling anything that they can make a profit with. Forbes says that 7% of their sales are books. The rest are not books (93%). Another interesting thing from is that Laverne & Shirley star, Penny Marshall was paid $47 for every print copy of her book that was sold. She got an $800,000 advance and the book only sold 17,000 copies.

Did you know that scurvy killed millions of people? What is this terrible disease? It is a vitamin C deficiency. Have you heard of beriberi? It comes from eating too many berries. Just kidding. It is a vitamin B1 deficiency that harms the nervous system and can include emotional disturbances, heart failure, and death. The Asians and now Americans like to polish or refine rice. They then throw away the rice germ & bran and this has thiamine (vitamin B1) in it and a lot of other nutrients.

Flu is short for influenza. That is because they used to think that it was caused by influence of the stars. Now they know that it is a matter of coming in contact with a germ and a weak immune system. I have not had a cold, flu or headache for 15 years and it is not because I do not have a lot of contact with people. To see how it has to do with immune system see How to Avoid the Flu or Colds. The human immune system, if not compromised, can fight off any disease.

Now why do you say 'God bless you' when people sneeze? It is because you were taught to. You were taught that because people used to think that it meant an evil spirit was going to possess you. It is just the nose ejecting debris like dust. So you do not need to be afraid that evil spirits are going to possess you. Doctors have not taken a vow of poverty, chastity and obedience. So they only do something when it makes them money.

The above changes did not happen instantly. They took time and some people knew before others. I did a search for recent health breakthroughs. One is that exercise helps your brain. That is because exercise helps your circulation so more blood can get to your brain. Another is watching TV dulls your brain. That is because it stops you from exercising. But there are ways to exercise while watching TV. Heart failure is caused from not getting enough blood. People might want to know where I learned about medicine. The same place that Elon Musk learned about rocket science-- reading books.

They also learned that blood-letting or bleeding does not help cure health problems after using it on millions of people. After George Washington had been President he had a very sore throat so he was attended by the top doctors in the country. They bled 3 pints of blood (almost half of all his blood) from him and he died! The greatest invention for hospitals is soap. Before that they would not wash hands between patients or operations. It was a waste of time and doctor's do important things with their time.

People love reading articles that support unhealthy habits they have. So you can find plenty of them. Now a vegan diet can be gummy bears and Skittles. That is not a healthy diet. So you have to make sure to get certain key nutrients on a vegan diet or you can die of get sick and die. See The Essential Supplements. The biggest cause of death of in Americans is clogged arteries that cause heart attacks and strokes.

So should you eat animal products? I am not going to tell you. I do not like shoulding on other people. That is a pun in case English is not your first language. Meat-eating animals do not get clogged arteries. Maybe someday they will discover a Kryptonite from planet Krypton that will do that. With plant-eating animals you can give them animal-foods to eat and they will get clogged arteries. So that is how it works. Someone can write a thousand page article explaining why and it may be all wrong. So now you know how to clog arteries.

The number one cause of death in the United States is heart attacks or to sound fancy-- myocardial infarctions. The number one cause of death in Canada is malignant neoplasm. Don't you dislike malignant neoplasm? If you do not know what it means, are you going to look it up? According to one theory, not to look it up can cause you to get confused, leave a subject or commit crimes. It means cancer.

So why this difference in the number one cause of death in Canada being cancer? Is it something that only God knows? Moores Cancer Center says that cancer is a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D prevents cancer and many things. In fact it comes from the sun of God or God's sun. The day to celebrate the sun is Sunday. Saturday is the last day of the week when God rested. They have no idea when Jesus was born but on December 25 they notice the days get longer so that is the birthday of the sun god.

So Canada is further from the equator than the U.S. so it gets weaker sunlight and creates less vitamin D. Vitamin D does many things including strengthening the immune system and helping the body get rid of toxins. Note that it is created by UV-B light. This is stronger around noon and drops off quickly when you get further from noon. Nitric oxide helps the arteries and it is created in the body by UV-A light. This light is mostly constant through out the day unlike UV-B light. UV stands ultra violet light. Vitamin D is actually a neurosteroid hormone according to PubMed.

3 guys won Nobel prizes for researching how vital nitric oxide is for cardiovascular health. See Improve Circulation with Nitric Oxide. Also JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) says that 77% of Americans do not get enough vitamin D. Now you know why there is so much cancer. Read what PubMed calls the Vitamin D Deficiency Pandemic. A pandemic is a widespread epidemic.

Type 1 diabetes is caused by pregnant mother and baby not getting enough vitamin D. I am not making this stuff up. The articles have lots of authoritative and definitive sources in it. A study in The Lancet showed that over 10,000 babies were given 2,000 IU of vitamin D daily and it reduced the type 1 diabetes by 85%. Why only 85%. The mothers that were pregnant with the fetuses for 9 months did not get any vitamin in the study. So you can see how the flu can be seen as caused by the influence of the stars.

Now the Finnish doctors have lowered the amount of vitamin D and lots of babies get type 1 diabetes. That means a lot more money for doctors. Why do doctors tell people that sunlight is bad for heath in humans but good for all other animals. Sunscreen is a multi-billion dollar business and other animals do not have money. I told you that the only goal of the medical industry is to make money. Read Why Highest Paid Model Does Not Wear Sunscreen.

Here is more history so you can see how it repeats itself in different ways. There is a terrible bone disease known as rickets. Eighty percent of the children in North America and Europe had it. The children in Africa and South America had no problem with it. Then they discovered vitamin D in 1922 and that was the cure for rickets. In other words lack of vitamin D was the cause of rickets.

They think that the increase in autism rates may be due to toxins in the vaccines like aluminum, formaldehyde or phenoxyethanol or other toxins. They stopped using thimerosal with mercury in all vaccines except the flu vaccines. Now I said that one of the many things that vitamin D does, is help the body get rid of toxins. So to see what they found, read Type 1 Diabetes, Like Autism, is Preventable.

For people that have plaque or blockages in their arteries, they have found that drinking pomegranate juice daily can reduce these blockages. Also fruit juices do not have many bad side effects. In fact anyone can get benefits from drinking pomegranate juice daily. See Outstanding Health Benefits of Pomegranates.

Now maybe the best is last. Everyone gets high blood pressure if they live long enough. The CDC says that is is due to arteries getting harder. What do you expect when you eat rocks. I am a strange fellow. I suggest that people only eat food. There is conclusive proof, without any doubt, that all high blood pressure comes from eating salt, that is not a food. It is biblical. They rubbed into the wounds of Jesus to make it hurt more.

Let me straighten out some things that doctors and scientists get wrong all the time. Salt is not sodium. Sodium is not salt. Salt is sodium chloride that is a combination of sodium that catches on fire when put into water and chlorine which is a poisonous gas. I used to be a chemist for the U.S. government. Of course Americans thought that white people were people and black people were property to be owned, like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned black slaves.

So almost all people use salt and wild animals do not. People that do not eat salt never get high blood pressure. Wild animals do not get high blood pressure. But they took some wild animals and fed them salt. Not only did they get high blood pressure, but the more salt that they gave them, the higher their blood pressure. It does not get any more conclusive than that. For the actual studies, most from Michael Greger M.D., see How to Live 30 Years Longer. Dr. Greger says that salt causes over 1,000 Americans to die per day (400,000 per year). See his 5 minute video below.↓

High Blood Pressure May Be a Choice by Dr. Greger (only 5 minutes).

The Single Cause of All High Blood Pressure or Hypertension

Some scientists and doctors say that you need sodium so you need to eat salt. That is like saying that you need iron so you need to eat iron nails. Now don't get me wrong. Salt can be used for good things like salting the roads to prevent icy roads but should not be eaten. Iron nails can do a lot of good things but should not be eaten. They are not a food. So eat foods and avoid eating non-foods. Micheal Jackson, Elvis Presley, Heath Ledger, Whitney Houston and Brittany Murphy ate non-foods and died.

Note that gets a million visitors a day. On above article there is a link to a webMD article that says that if you start smoking cigarettes and stop consuming salt, you will get healthier and live longer. This is not a misprint. The point is not that you should start smoking cigarettes but that consuming salt is worse for you than smoking!

How does salt cause people to be overweight when it has no calories. Well it causes you to eat more food because it is addictive. There is a link to an article on the above all about that. Also it causes you to retain water. Some use the term bloated. Beyoncé lost 20 pounds in 10 days on the lemonade diet. Is the diet low in calories? No, you get plenty from the maple syrup. But the diet has no salt so you can lose a lot of water weight and water weight is uglier than fat. See A Healthy Alternative to Salt.

Below is a link to my article about the healthiest diet that there is. This article tells about a trick that all wild animals use so they never overeat and never get overweight. You can use that trick also to be healthier and not be overweight. Also no one tells you what foods are the healthiest in this article. You know, not believe, what foods are the healthiest by using something that God or mother nature has given you and the wild animals.

Albert Einstein said "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe." For example American Christians thought it was okay to have black slaves. It took a war to convince them that it was wrong. Also it was legal to have sex with an 8 year black girl if you owned her or were given permission to by the owner!
