Trust the science - Not!

From Marilyn Monroe to Angelina Jolie. What a difference a generation makes. After a tenuous two years of trusting Anthony Fauci we now look forward to the greatest pandemic since Covid - WokeHollywood-itis

So, deny medical care to Whites. What a Nazi this woman is.

This is a big nothing.

First, it’s Angelina Jolie. Who cares?

Second, yes, there is a ‘bias’ in medicine. I’m not sure bias is the right word. But yes, medicine uses a lot of statistical analyses which favor majorities over minorities. This doesn’t necessarily mean “white,” but in decades past that was a common outcome. It’s the same reason why people with extremely rare diseases won’t get a cure, because the money and the research is being directed towards more common diseases. Similarly, if a disease is more prone in a relatively small minority of people (blue eyed pygmies, for example), then it might not get the prioritized over another disease that’s a big deal for Asians.

Last year I was prescribed a medication by my doctor which caused hours of intense pain each time I took it. When I told him about it, he sheepishly said that was a rare side effect, which for some reason only affects black men. It’s not his fault. It’s not the fault of the pharmaceutical company. It’s just a rare side effect for a group of humans. I now have a different medication.

Perhaps you are correct, and we should not pay much attention to what Ms.Jolie spewed out of her mouth. Which is racial hate to be specific. Her talent has become irrelevant, and she struggles to attract attention, so she resorts to this.

She is not alone though. I recall how access to antibody covid treatments, a lifesaving medicine, was proposed to be prioritized on skin color basis. This is Nazi medicine. Nuremberg trial made a verdict on practitioners of Nazi medicine. The Left needs to be educated on the consequences of what they propose.

I’ve come to understand that the practice of medicine is, indeed, practice. More than once, I’ve felt like the subject of a human chemistry experiment. “Take this and let’s see whether you feel better.”

Lots of drugs are also prescribed “off label” which means they were developed for some purpose, but then used for treating a different ailment. For example, to treat my rheumatoid arthritis, doctors first prescribed hydroxychloroquine and then methotrexate, the former initially developed to treat malaria, the latter developed as an anti-cancer drug, but both used “off label” to treat inflammatory conditions.

Yeah, I used to call that “diagnosis through prescription.” If the drug for XXX makes you feel better, then you must have XXX. If not, we’ll try a drug for YYY to see if you have YYY. It’s kind of amazing that for all our medical advancements, we still can’t identify the cause before we prescribe the cure.

I feel that one of the biggest issues with Western medicine is the focus on alleviating symptoms over actually curing, or better yet preventing, the underlying problem.

Absolutely agree! It’s just so difficult to find a doctor with the time and willingness to get to the root cause of a problem.

If you found a holistic or functional Dr… know that he or she deprogrammed self from medical education. Not many are able to.

I’ve luckily found one. Unfortunately she has a 5 month wait for appointments and I have more issues than she can fix in 1 hour every 5 months. A lot of her patients are mainstream doctors and nurses.

Even a good holistic doctor won’t always get things right if you’re even just a little outside their norm. I went for years with a whole host of medical issues. Dozens of tests by different specialists resulted in a lot of “maybes” but nothing definitive. Finally my wife had the idea of food allergies, and I went on the most basic whole food diet. In the end, she figured it out. I have certain autoimmune issues exacerbated by severe food allergies.

You and the people who know you best may turn out to be your most effective doctors when all is said and done. Trust yourself. My mother has lived a decade or more longer than expected trusting her own instinct about her own health.

Of course the skin care industry would target whites with their products, whites are by far the most prevalent of the races. So if you want the most sales are you going to target a minority or the majority? Racism is always the garbage claim of libs, instead of just using what little brain mass they have to just think about the reality of the situation.

Although I have not had a bad experience with medication I have had bad experiences with Physicians. A “family” Physician diagnosed my heal pain as a chronic blister before an Orthopedist correctly determined it was tendinitis.

I had the same experience. I have a good holistic doctor, but it takes time to properly diagnose complicated issues. When we’re working on a problem, he wants me to come in every month or three, but his scheduler can’t get me in any sooner than 6 months. That’s the problem with having a good doctor, I guess; everyone wants to go there.

First of all, I appreciate everyone’s opinion! I’m going to step back just a little and recall the me too movement and black lives matter rage. Through all of that and then covid, there were hospitals and nurses/doctors who refused to treat whites! This was in the Sol Cal greater area.

First responder, boots on the front line. I witnessed it! The WOKE, The ME TOO, BLM, the RICH and FAMOUS, POLITICIANS and the GOVERNMENT all played a big role in hindering what we were called and asked to do!

Hollywood elites chosen profession is to entertain the masses of hard-working AMERICAN’S who GET IT DONE! I don’t care what they think or what they say!

If they can’t be useful, why don’t they just think up some other award to honor themselves! (I won’t watch it, but if it shuts the hole under their noses, more power to them!)

Keep on living. I’m on neurologist #4 and rheumatologist #3. It’s OK to fire your doc.

It is important to realize that doctors are providing you with advice and an opinion based on their understanding of the symptoms you present and the tests that they run. You, the patient, are ultimately responsible for your treatment and whether you accept the diagnosis and opinion presented to you.

Let me know if you find a good neurologist. I’ve just decided that neurology is quackery. I know I’m wrong, but my experience was a total waste of time and money.
