I bought a Google Chromecast for $35.  It allows me to stream from my laptop to the television.  I have the laptop by the couch, and I have a stereo hooked up to the television.  I plugged the Chromecast into the HDMI outlet on the Sony Stereo.  The Sony is hooked up to my Vizio TV.   A much better experience than a computer monitor and small speakers.

Note:  Low cholesterol is a surrogate endpoint that doesn’t save lives.  Pharma has made billions treating their cholesterol myth with statins (most of which are off patent).  Now a new patented family of drugs is on the market—the switch is on.  These drugs do not prevent or reverse atherosclerosis and thus its health consequence. Pharma has made billions more treating the resultant hypertension, and following an MI from arrhythmia and anticoagulants drugs.  The rise in this health problems started cigarettes, polyunsaturated and trans-fats, and later the high-carb diet.  The way to reduce risk for atherosclerosis is to eat a healthy diet, exercise, take the supplements I listed, and don’t smoke.  What is true about the marketing of statin is a window on how pharma works; I call it tobacco ethics”—the ethic for the maximization of profits.   

 

5.  Psychiatric Drugs and Psychiatry

***** Making a Killing, the Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugs 95 min 669,000 views; starts with senseless killings and suicides to show these drugs do more harm than good; leads into drug approval, they are very addicting; that pharma hooked up with Am. psychiatry Assoc. to turn them into willing pill pushers that invent & expand mental illness.  Missed is that these drugs are tranquilizers were approved because they increase sleep, which is 15% of its “benefits” under Hamilton Rating Scale.  What pharma does to market psychiatric drugs, the same is done with all of the most profitable classes of drugs, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsqDyEMkLpQ  excellent

***** Big pharma Big Money  176 min 2,900 views (May 2015) great organization, covers all key topics, for a general audience, no delays by human interest stories; however, it repeats through multiple testimonials each point, which accounts for its length https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSA_itmEr5s excellent also under Psychiatry:  The Marketing of Madness at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFkivsEy3CI  

Depression is NOT a Chemical Imbalance 177 min, 64,000 views; uses experts and patients to expose that psychotropic drugs are not worth their side effects.  Very on the similar but inferior to Big Pharma Big Money by same producer, well done worth seeing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OB-AzVBj3E very good

BBC Mental A History of the Madhouse 59 min, 496, 000 views, BBC documentary on older mental institutions, shock treatment, lobotomy, physical abuse, and conditions worse than prisons. It ends with Thatcher’s solution of closing them and putting their patients on the street. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oswUssXzFlY  Very good  

Medicating Kids, 8 min, 16,000 views, Frontline, in six chapters, human interest follows the experience of 4 families--not critical in 6 parts; more dumb-down public education that doesn’t educate on PBS.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcPGRMR2NAQ&list=PL430AC2819B395F61 OK

Instead of treating a people with a drug that makes them feel better, pharma uses slow acting, addicting tranquilizers.  A number of the illicit recreational drugs would perform much better than pharma’s downers in clinical trials:  Amphetamines for depression, marijuana and opiates for anxiety, and a combination of both depending on which phase for bipolar.  The issue of compliance with treatment would vanish if downers helped the sick.  For children we need to make the classes more stimulating rather than drug the kids.  Behaviorist therapy (distinguished form CBT) has been shown to work best for nearly all psychiatric problems. 

 

6.  Healthful drugs opposed by Pharma

Why You Still Need Estradiol (Estrogen) 5 min, 153 views, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAfq2v_9WG4 Very good intro

Nothing of quality on aspirin, CoQ10, testosterone and estrogen—not science but marketing.  Beware of testosterone boosters, bio-identical testosterone, and bio-identical estrogen, which aren’t bio-identical (only similar for some functions, mimics). They are untested and thus of uncertain value and risks.  Some mimics by occupying hormone receptors block the hormone action or turn it on when it should be off.  The leading progestin, MPA (a progesterone mimic) used in the leading HRT Prempro has caused millions of deaths by blocking the benefits of estradiol resulting in increased breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, thrombi, and coronary events.  Prempro was knowingly selected by the FDA in their mammoth trial to “prove” that HRT is dangerous.  There are numerous studies that expose the health hazards of both natural and man-made chemicals that are sex hormone mimics.  Dr. John R. Lee Progesterone, 56 min, 13,000 listeners, no video, only voice, is on natural progesterone http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBvH1zktooQ .  A mountain of journal articles show the benefits of both estradiol and testosterone.  Recently oral progesterone has come to market, and undoubted is better than the synthetic progestins, especially MPA.  Aspirin has hundreds of older journal articles show it many benefits, but like hormones and CoQ10, it would cut deeply into pharma’s profits.  There are many quality books on them based on the earlier research, and some recent research.

There can be no effective control of corporations while their political activity remains."
