Medical Experiments That Crossed A Line by Natural News

Medical experimentation is the foundation of many of the critical discoveries that have saved lives and changed the way we live, but not all of those experiments have been innocuous. In fact, over the last century horrible harms have been done to individuals in the name of science, says Natural News and Health Ranger Mike Adams. Some of these experiments are well known, but many are buried in the annals of history.

The Tuskegee Syphillis Study

The Tuskegee syphilis study is one of the most well known cases of human medical experimentation that crossed an ethical line. In 1932, a group of sharecroppers were injected with syphilis and were then subsequently followed by a team of doctors who trace the progression of the untreated disease, explains Natural News. All of the men eventually die from the disease, though none know it is the cause.

Testing Chemical Warfare

Sharecroppers were an easy target, but the United States has not been above testing members of its own military. In 1942, for instance, a group of 4,000 military members find themselves volunteered for chemical exposure. The chemicals to be tested, according to Health Ranger Mike Adams, were mustard gas and lewisite. Many of the volunteers have no notion of what they have been volunteered to do.

Easy Targets: The Insane

Patients at mental institutions were perennial favorites when it came to medical experimentation. During WWII, a University of Chicago Medical School professor infected a group of psychotic patients with malaria in an attempt to develop a cure to help the war effort. The infected group was then exposed to a variety of attempted cures, explains Natural News.

An Assault On Prisoners

Similarly, prisoners were another easy group to experiment on and have found themselves on the receiving end of a variety of experiments, including a 1967 experiment in which a skin-blistering chemical was applied to their faces and backs. Scientists justified this by saying they were examining how skin works to protect itself against constant assault. Unfortunately, notes Health Ranger Mike Adams, the prisoners had no means of protecting themselves from such an assault.

Searching For The Crime Gene

As we get closer to today, those viewed as pre-criminals were subjects of medical experiments as well, says the Natural News. A group of 7,000 young African American men are told they are being tested for anemia but instead are tested for the presence of an additional Y chromosome, which was believed to predispose the men to criminal activity.                                                                   

The history of medical experimentation does not end there, but continues today, often unrealized. It is left to investigative journalists and curious citizens to unmask the unethical acts of the medical establishment.

Dr. Michael Har-Noy Says Weakened Immunity is NOT the Reason Cancer Occurs

Dr. Michael Har-Noy of Immunovative Therapies, an Israeli biotech company founded in 2004, says that the idea that cancer occurs because of weakened immunity is erroneous and misguided. 

Dr. Michael Har-Noy explains that when a normal cell grows into a cancer cell, changes in the display of surface antigens give rise to tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) that could be detected by one’s immune system.  In 1909,Ehrlich first theorized  that a person’s own immunity protected them from cancer, an idea that was promoted in the 1950s by Lewis Thomas and later by Sir Macfarlane Burnet, who theorized that a patient’s immune cells had a “surveillance” system that identified and killed precancerous and cancerous cells.  Dr. Michael Har-Noy indicates that this hypothesis was based on the idea that cancer cells continually form in a person’s body and that their immune system must identify and kill cells that express surface TAAs

This hypothesis goes on to state that in instances where the patient’s immunity is compromised, the surveillance system is then disabled, and the cancer cells grow unchecked and clinical disease occurs. Dr. Michael Har-Noy says that this is the idea behind the notion that in cancer, the patient’s immune system is weakened, and that it must be reinforced to effectively attack the cancer cells.

Dr. Michael Har-Noy goes on to indicate that there is much evidence contradicting this theory. While a minority of the more unusual cancers develop in immune compromised patients, most malignant tumors arise in individuals with intact immunity.  Also, many tumors, especially epithelial cell cancers, have a significant number of inflammatory cells. This includes an array of leukocyte infiltrates consisting of neutrophils, macrophages, mast cells, eosinophils, often in the presence of lymphocytes. Dr. Michael Har-Noy points out that malignant tumors are usually profusely infiltrated with immune cells, which contradicts the hypothesis of deficient immune recognition of TAAs.

Additionally, many previous efforts to augment the immune response resulted in faster growth rather than slower growth of the cancer. For example, in mice, a newly formed cancer of combined mesenchymal and epithelial origin grows more quickly of it stimulates a response from the patient’s immune cells.  Dr. Michael Har-Noy indicates that cancers that stimulate a significant immune response will often, if left undisturbed, grow more quickly than those that do not trigger the patient’s immunity.  So, the notion that cancers are “invisible” to the patient’s immune cells and that the patient’s immune response needs to be enhanced appears to be wrong.

Dr. Michael Har-Noy concludes that the issue may be that the patient’s immune reaction to the cancer is the incorrect type of response.  Therefore, by attempting to augment an immune response that has already failed to protect the patient against malignancies, tumor propagation may be sped up rather than slowed.  This is likely the reason that most immune cancer therapies to date have been ineffective.

How to Achieve Good Health with Dr. Dov Rand MD

Everybody’s definition of good health may be different. In a broad sense, good health means the optimal functioning of mind and body. Dr. Dov Rand MD, an authority on anti-aging medicine, encourages his clients (and everyone) to work towards achieving good health. In Dr. Dov Rand MD’s experience, many individuals who use his professional services faced numerous health issues that were often chronic in nature. In an attempt to prevent chronic and debilitating illness, Dr. Dov Rand MD is offering his top three steps to start up on your journey of achieving good health. Three easy ways to achieve good health include: staying active, getting proper nutrition, and refraining from unhealthy habits.

Dr. Dov Rand MD’s first recommendation is to stay active. Living a sedentary lifestyle can lead to increased weight gain, muscle atrophy, and decreased motivation. Dr. Dov Rand MD recommends a consistent habit of staying active as one of the most important steps in achieving good health. Dr. Dov Rand MD points out that regular exercise can help prevent obesity, increase muscle mass, and improve concentration and energy.

Next, Dr. Dov Rand MD recommends maintaining good nutritional habits. In his medical practice, Dr. Dov Rand MD has encountered many individuals that have previously neglected to maintain good nutrition. Establishing and maintaining good nutritional habits are key to making sure your body has what it needs to function properly. In order to avoid experiencing the negative effects associated with poor diet, Dr. Dov Rand MD recommends eating a balanced diet and drinking plenty of water.

Finally, Dr. Dov Rand MD emphasizes the importance of limiting unhealthy behaviors. Unhealthy behaviors, such as drinking excessive amounts of alcohol or smoking cigarettes, introduce toxins and chemicals into the body which can cause long-term illness. The introduction of toxins to the body can affect the operation of normal body functions and damage internal organs. While it is important to enjoy life, engaging in unhealthy behaviors can have long-lasting negative effects on the body.

Dr. Dov Rand MD is an advocate of disease prevention and enjoys providing education to his patients and the public on healthy living. Dr. Dov Rand MD is an active member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the Age Management Group. Dr. Dov Rand MD has provided top-notch medical care to hundreds of patients for the past seven years. Dr. Dov Rand MD believes that abiding by these three simple steps can help guarantee a long and healthy life.

The Importance of Hormones with Dov Rand

Dov Rand knows better than anyone that hormones are exceedingly important for the body’s function. After all, as a board certified medical doctor who owns and operates a private medical practice group in West Orange, New Jersey, Dov Rand is more than familiar with the effects that hormones have on the body. This is one of the many reasons why Dov Rand believes that everyone should learn more about hormones and their effects on the body.
Hormones: More Than You Think They Are
Hormones, explains Dov Rand, are among the most important things in the human body. Dov Rand explains that hormones have a myriad of functions in the body, including regulating such functions as growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, mood and aging processes.
Essentially, Dov Rand explains, hormones are the body’s chemical messengers. This means that the body uses hormones to let other parts of the body know what to do and how to respond to certain stimuli.
Hormones are managed by a number of very important organs, Dov Rand furthers, most notably the endocrine glands. Despite the fact that hormones play such a large role in how the body functions, the chemicals themselves are actually very small and a very tiny amount of a given hormone goes a long way towards enacting a certain biological function.
Hormones and Aging
Dov Rand is quick to point out that hormones play a huge role in the aging process. In fact, most of the discomfort associated with aging can be traced back to the decrease of naturally occurring and vital hormones in the body. For example, Dov Rand explains, most men begin to complain about signs of aging after they experience a dip in testosterone. Likewise, women begin to feel more sluggish and – for lack of a better term, older – when their estrogen levels begin to deplete after menopause.
All in all, as Dov Rand knows, hormones are incredibly important for the function of the body and even more so when it comes to age management and the aging process. Dov Rand has dedicated his life and career to helping people manage the aging process and has developed a number of technologies that can help his patients deal with the issues associated with the decrease in hormone levels that occurs as the body ages. Dov Rand believes that all of his patients have the right to look and feel as young as they so desire.

The 16 Personality Types Explained by Ricardo Warfield

Every person is an individual but there seem to be personality traits that are similar in nature. These traits can be used to identify different psychological types of human consciousness and the attitudes and preferences those personality types share. Ricardo Warfield is a business professional but also a Certified Myers Briggs Personality Type practitioner. As such, he understands the variances of personality types by their four letter combinations.

Personality Types are first broken down into general attitude. The two types are:

·       (E) Extroverts
·       (I) Introverts

According to Ricardo Warfield, "Many introverts are stereotyped as being shy but this is not necessarily true. Introverts are people who put a lot of focus in thought and ideas. They may also enjoy a lot of time at home or alone." By extension, an extrovert is someone who is concerned with external matters and, "They are typically viewed as outgoing while enjoying a highly social environment," explains Ricardo Warfield.

There are then four breakdowns of a person's mental functions. These are how a person interprets information. As taught by the Myers Briggs theory, that Ricardo Warfield is certified in, these are:

·         (S) Sensing
·         (N) Intuition

After the way a person interprets information is the process by which people make decision. "Some people may take time to think their choices through using logic or base their decision on a person or situation," he further explains. For determining personality types, this breaks decision making into:

·         (T) Thinking
·         (F) Feeling

Finally, personality types finish with what the Myers Briggs personality type calls "structure." According to Ricardo, this means if people make a firm decision or stay open to new information. The final breakdown in personality is defined as either:

·         (P) Perceiving
·         (J) Judging

Important to Ricardo Warfield and others that look at the different personality types is understanding that each personality type has value. Some people may prefer personality types over others but each have value. According to Ricardo Warfield, the different categories are combined to make the 16 different recognizable personality types.

According to Ricardo Warfield, there are plenty of benefits to understanding your personality type. For some people, finding out your personality can help determine which fields or industries would be best to pursue as a career. According to him, once a person recognizes the strengths of their personality they can use it as a tool to determine a career path and point to strengths in the hiring process.
