Monologue

Nurse Joanne Conaway fills in for Dr. Wallach.  Joanne starts the show discussing a recent study that found vitamins C and E were good for heart function for some people.  But all of the mainstream media outlets looked at the study and lumped all of the numbers together and stated that these vitamins did nothing.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Joanne Conaway discuss two recent news articles.  The first concerns the new "black box" warning on the diabetes drugs Avandia and Actos.  Although an FDA advisor recommended removing the drugs from the market the FDA elected to just add the warning about increased risk of heart failure.  Second they discuss a German study that found eating fast food "healthy alternatives" had the same damaging effects on the cardiovascular system as did the regular fast food items.
