Dr. Joel Wallach begins the show discussing "failed medical theories". Doc states that early man believed that illness was caused by evil spirits. Then it was good and bad "humours", after that an imbalance of "biles". After the discovery of bacteria it was thought all disease was caused by bacteria. Once viruses were discovered that of course they were the cause of disease. Later the human genome was mapped out and genetics are now the cause.Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article about contaminated scopes in Seattle. These endoscopes infected 32 people with drug resistant bacteria. Eleven of those infected ultimately died. However the authors were quick to point out that these people were already crtically ill. The same scenario played out in Pittsburgh in 2012 and Chicago in 2014. Although the hospitals were following the manufacturors guidelines for sanitizing between patients. These same guidelines were approved by the FDA.Callers
