How to Stop Your Doctor Killing You
Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA qualified as a doctor and is still a registered GP though he has not practiced for many years. He resigned as a GP after refusing to put diagnoses on sick notes. He resigned as columnist on The Sunday People after the editor refused to print a column criticizing the Iraq war.He is the author of over 100 books – including fiction and non fiction.
Novels include Mrs Caldicot’s Cabbage War (which has been filmed).
Non fiction best sellers include Bodypower and How to Stop Your Doctor Killing You.
In 1983 he launched the world’s first medical software for home computers. He has written columns for many major newspapers (including The Sun and The People) and written articles for many more. He has made many TV and radio series (often based on his books.)
Over nearly 50 years he has campaigned on many issues involving both people and animals and has as a result made many enemies among powerful pressure groups defending the interests of drug, food and oil companies. But his books remain popular with readers and independent critics.
-Many examples to show doctors are failing patients.
-10% of dementia diagnoses are something other than Alzheimer’s but are incorrectly diagnosed as the incurable and specific disease of Alzheimer’s. Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, a type of dementia, can be cured with surgery to place a shunt.
-1 in 6 people in hospital are there because they’ve been made sick by a doctor.
-No evidence to prove vaccines are safe and effective. Dr. Coleman offers a million dollar challenge to anyone that can prove they are 100% safe and effective.
-Overuse of antibiotics is creating resistance. Farmers routinely giving them to their livestock and poultry.
-Water from tap is from recycled sewage water. Drugs (benzodiazepines, contraceptives) are soluble in human excretions and can’t be filtered out. Men are getting feminized by female hormones in tap water.
-Benzodiazepines (e.g. Valium, Ativan) are more addictive than heroin. Shouldn’t be prescribed more than 2 weeks. Benzos dampens down all those emotions, and when stopped, the emotions rebound.
-Doctors get paid every time their practice gives a vaccine or gives chemotherapy.
-Vaccines cause a lot of brain problems. Incidence of target diseases were dramatically reduced before the vaccine was introduced. Incidence of polio increased after the polio vaccines were introduced. It doesn’t matter if the vaccine would be “clean”, their essence introduces problems.
-It’s prohibited to have mercury in a themometer, but they put mercury in vaccinations.
-Vaccines are promoted because they are thought to provide cohort (herd) immunity, which reduces absenteeism in work force and schools.
-Screening industry is very profitable. People having annual checkups were no healthier than people who didn’t. Better to let patients know what to look for.
-Tamoxifen promoted as a breast cancer preventive to healthy women, but it causes cancer of the uterus.
-If you’re getting a treatment and you get new symptoms, assume the new symptoms are caused by the treatment you’re getting.
-Ask the doctor, if you had my problems, would you use this treatment for yourself or your family?
-No point in having tests done unless the results will affect your treatment.
-Digitalis (foxglove) and aspirin – 2 powerful medicines found centuries ago. Take soluble aspirin that you drink, not tablet aspirin, to prevent holes in the stomach. If having a heart attack, aspirin can prevent damage. Recommends against daily preventive aspirin.
-Bronchitis – avoid smoking. Treatable if quickly treated with an antibiotic.
-Eating meat linked to cancer. Grocery store meat is high in carcinogenics.
-Predicts another “Irish Potato Famine” multiplied a thousandful when the GMO-seed crops fail.
