Dr. Peter Glidden fills in for Dr. Wallach today. Dr. Glidden starts the show discussing the "war on cancer". Asserting that one trillion dollars have been spent on cancer research and nothing has changed. Contending that people are so conditioned that the MDs are the only game in town that we don't even get mad when their therapeutics fail. Citing a study that found 97% of cancer therapy on adults does not work.
Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Glidden discuss more of Doug's experiences with the medical industry. As Doug's father is currently dealing with lung cancer. This the final installment of this saga of witnessing incompetant medical staff near mistakes with medicines and tests. The final chapter deals with a "rehab" facility that his father was released to from the hospital. The entire building stank of urine to the point of burning the eyes. Patients with dementia left in hallways of wards just sitting and drooling on themselves. Other patients in electric wheel chairs left just spinning in circles staring blankly at the ceiling. The beds in the rooms so old they raised and lowered with hand cranks at the foot of the bed. Seeing all of this Doug contacted his father's oncologist and arranged for "in-home" physical therapy and took his dad home where he belonged. The moral of the story here is that people need to wake up and become advocates for their own health and that of their loved ones. Don't depend on the medical system for the care and saftey of those you love.
