In a head-to-head debate recently published by the British Medical Journal, Laura Esserman argues against using the word “cancer” to describe low-risk malignancies. It’s no secret that there is a lot of fear-mongering in the cancer industry — nor is it a secret that cancer overdiagnosis and overtreatment are widespread issues. Esserman posits that changing the way we talk about ultra-low-risk cancers can help reduce overtreatment — and reduce fear and anxiety for patients along with it. Estimates suggest that many millions of dollars are spent on chemotherapy treatment for ultra-low-risk lesions that may never turn … [Read more...] about Will renaming low-risk cancers minimize anxiety and harm caused by unnecessary investigation and treatment?

In addition to the mainstream media’s “flupocalypse” scare tactics, there’s now a wave of “free” flu shots taking over supermarkets and pharmacies — and all it will cost you is your health. The vaccine industry is a total sham, bent on convincing humanity that we need Big Pharma to survive. But as a growing body of evidence shows, flu shots are doing more harm than good. If you were to believe the massive fear-mongering campaign being waged by pro-vaccine propagandists, the flu shot would appear to be the only thing standing between you and a life-threatening illness. But … [Read more...] about Evidence-based reality: Flu shots do more harm than good

SUBSCRIBE Nov. 1, 2018 / 5:48 PM GMT By Liz Szabo, Kaiser Health News When Kristen Kilmer was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer at age 38, her first thought was of her 8-year-old daughter. Kilmer lost her own mother as a teenager and was determined to get more time with her only child. Kilmer searched for experimental treatments, opting for an unproven approach in which researchers select drugs based on the genes in patients’ tumors. Doctors have selected her treatments for the past three years based on the unique, ever-changing DNA of her cancer cells. Now 41, Kilmer has responded better than anyone dared to hope. Her cancer has gone into hiding; her tumors are no longer visible on medical scans. Researchers call the strategy “precision medicine.” Kilmer’s insurance company calls it experimental. As a consequence, her … [Read more...] about ‘Precision medicine’ often financially toxic for cancer patients

After President Donald Trump announced last week that the federal government will begin negotiating with drug manufacturers for lower prices on medicines paid for by Medicare Part B, discussion has flared once again about how best to lower drug prices overall, particularly for seniors. What may be overlooked in all the debate is a much more immediate change that some Medicare recipients may be facing during the current 2019 open-enrollment period that ends Dec. 7. A ruling from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will allow Medicare Advantage plans to implement "step therapy" provisions starting in 2019. Medicare Advantage is a replacement for traditional Medicare. It's administered through private insurers and covers original Medicare parts A and B and often Part D prescription drug coverage and extras that traditional Medicare doesn't cover, such as dental and vision. About a third of Medicare recipients choose Medicare Advantage plans. With step therapy, … [Read more...] about This drug cost-cutting strategy may harm Medicare patients
