In response to my thesis on cardiology and hematology the FDA responded, "the drug manufacturer/sponsor would need to make the business decision to conduct clinical trials to study the efficacy of Hawthorne in the treatment of heart disease, high blood pressure, arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, and other cardiovascular medical conditions".  But Hawthorne is not even in bloom and the berry and leaf harvest is not over until first frost.  I am still in training to run an age adjusted Boston Marathon qualifying time of around 3:30.  Boston Marathon qualifying times are between 3:05 for males age 17-24 and 3:15 for females of the same age, going up five minutes every four years to 5:20 for 80+.  There is no denying I am getting mold, more of a fungi than a jogger, thank god for the clean socks I must learn to purchase for myself.  Like my infectious mycotic walking friend who got drunk and fell off a bridge fracturing his foot and twisting his knee the day he refused to put on the $1 athlete's foot crème (clotrimazole) I had bought for him.  But it will take a long while for the 1 ½ ft in diameter patch of green mold, that grew on my leather jacket in a month or two of spring weather, to eat through the cow skin, at the dump.  Aspergillus spp. (A. niger is sold to academic laboratories but is not in the literature), candida and other pathogenic fungi are not only living cultures that cause localized and systemic infections, but are also very carcinogenic, and immunosuppressed antibiotic consumers, lung disease and cancer patients, everyone, needs equal access to the A. niger grade antifungal drug - itraconazole.  Antineoplastic drugs are not effective at treating infections and they don't sell Sporanox (itraconazole) without prescription for less than $7 a pill and a word of mouth prescription price monopolization crisis, at least in the Histoplasmosis culture of the Ohio River region, of around $2.50 a pill.  Medicaid seems to subsidize cheaper, less effective antifungals at the cost of diagnostic testing, probably because itraconazole has so many adverse drug reactions.  But the problem is that if you don't take itraconazole you will probably need to take several antifungals, I am taking two.  At least I got a free bus pass at the finish line of the half marathon in 2:20 this time.  A qualifying time for my age bracket requires a speed of around 8 mph and I only run around 6 mph when pausing to prescribe a second happy family this month with Rauwolfia serpentine the Ayurvedic treatment for schizophrenia (belligerence) in Americans with high blood pressure, who no longer die of malignant hypertension in three months as the result of this essential medicine and the second rate competition that monopolized the academic literature but might not treat the schizophrenia part of the hypothetical schizophrenia/hypertension syndrome, very well.  I must confess to having developed a small squamous cell carcinoma (95% of oral cancer for which there is little fear of death with treatment) of the uvula, since being forced to switch to pipe tobacco, dismissed by my sister, a nurse, and the Internet, as a uvula stone, amongst the white strepto-candidal immune-blobs on my palate, that cleared up with one good gargle of OTC candida remedy and some penicillin, to order methotrexate for around $1 a pill online without prescription. I guess the campfire host who returned from the dead to kill pedophiles didn't get enough antifungals for the antibiotic treatment of his occluding bacterial throat infection after the tracheotomy and a month of IV antibiotics, but at least he cleared out the outlaws squatting the community spring who evicted him, and no one got their camp slashed with a sword this time, he claims to be perfectly healthy and consume no drugs, the lump is my throat.  Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide and smoking is known to be a major risk factor in the accumulation of around 8 mutations needed to cause uncontrolled cellular growth of cancerous human cells.  The five year survival rate for lung cancer is among the worst of all cancers and averages only about 15%.  Smokers, everyone, need to be informed methotrexate, taken one pill once a week, is the first line oral chemotherapy for lung cancer, cancer of the head and neck, and rheumatism, and is available online without prescription for less than $1 a pill.  Likewise, after the flu vaccine was reported to have been only 8% effectiveness the people need to know they can buy the oral flu medicines Amantadine (Symmetrel) without prescription online and Tamiflu by prescription.     


Cardiology HA-20-4-13                                                                                                                                                  


The heart is a four-chambered muscular structure.  It is about the size of a fist but can get much larger with disease.  An adult weighing 160 pounds has about 5 quarts (4.7 liters) of blood in their circulatory system.  The heart beats at a rate of 60 to 100 times per minute.  Of the estimated 50 million, 166 out of 1,000, with unhealthy levels of lipoprotein in their blood, 7 million Americans feel angina (23 in 1,000), 1.5 million will suffer an acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) for which 550,000 will be hospitalized (1.8 out of 1,000) and of the 2.4 million people who died in 2004, 666,000 died from heart disease (2.2 out of 1,000) and 150,000 from stroke (0.5 out of 1,000).  In 1998 these death rates per 100,000 people from heart disease in the United States were 211.8 for black non-Hispanics, compared to 145.3 for white non-Hispanics, 101.5 for Hispanics, 106 for American Indians and 78 for Asians.  Coronary atherosclerosis with greater than 75% stenosis, involving more than one of the three major vessels is present in 80 to 90% of victims; only 10 to 20% of cases are of nonatherosclerotic origin.  Atherosclerosis occurs because a roughening of the endothelium of the arteries by toxins known as cardiac glycosides causes hyperlipidemia when fats (lipids) stick to the wall forming a plaque which can block (occlude) an artery causing ischemia of the cardiac muscle that dies as a result of lack of oxygen in a heart attack.  Angina pectoris, chest pain, can be passing or heart attack damage can take five days to seven weeks to heal barring infection, toxic exposure or animal products. Aspirin, (acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) is known by hospitals to reduce ischemic stroke risk by about 25-30 percent in three to four years but anticoagulants are highly associated with certain heart surgeries.  Statin blood cholesterol lowering drugs, reduce heart attacks by 40 percent and strokes by 30 percent, in six years, or better, and should be prescribed to heart attack patients on discharge, with a vegan diet and exercise program, but cost $2 a pill.  The FDA required warning for Digitalis and related cardiotonic drugs for human use in oral dosage forms, states "Digitalis alone or with other drugs has been used in the treatment of obesity. This use of digoxin or other digitalis glycosides is unwarranted. Moreover, since they may cause potentially fatal arrhythmias or other adverse effects, the use of these drugs in the treatment of obesity is dangerous" 21CFR§201.317 to which could be appended, "Hawthorne is the supreme herb for the heart". With Digitalis as the competition, the ABC of adrenergenic blockers developed since the 1970s have been abused in the treatment of arrhythmias and congestive heart failure and are the second leading cause of fatal drug overdose.  Rauvolfia serpentine alkaloids or hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) that cured malignant hypertension in the 1950s or felodipine may be preferred for hypertension for which medicine is essential.  Hawthorne (Crataegus laevigata) is the only medicine that accurately treats the entire constellation of congestive heart failure symptoms including high or low blood pressure and arrhythmias without any known side-effects and clinical trials are needed to make it law or prescribe it at the hospital.  Group A Streptococcus pyogenes that causes sore throat and fever in children causes 50% of rheumatic heart disease and is best treated with penicillin but most antibiotics work. Doxycycline, not for use in children under 9, is the only antibiotic that treats Staphylococcus aureus.  Kidney neglect, malabsorption, resistant streptococci and adverse reactions caused by Bactrim, the only drug indicated for the treatment of E. coli, the most frequent cause of kidney infection, could be avoided if the metronidazole (Flagyl ER) monograph for GI, bone and joint infections of bacterial or protozoal origin contained an indication for Escherichia coli and probiotics were used as an adjunct and for two weeks after antibiotic use. Cocksaxie B and Echo virus can cause a serious myocarditis that is best treated with Human Immune Globulin IV and patients who may be discriminated against because corticosteroids are the best home remedy, are forbidden from participating in organized athletics. Candida albicans often infects the GI and kidneys of immunocompromised patients and is best treated with the broad spectrum antifungal Sporanox (itraconazole) that is strongly contraindicated in congestive heart failure due to adverse reactions with Digitalis and antihypertensive medicines. Cancer is an idiopathic disorder now that the antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal properties of antineoplastic drugs were removed from the drug monographs as was the prescription of Sporanox (itraconazole) as the primary prophylaxis for myeloma, leukemia, bone disease and graft versus host disease (or other neoplasm) caused by fungal aspergillosis, candidiasis, histoplasmosis or mucormycosis, that are hypothesized to cause most cancers and intoxicate the human to kill human cells.  Rational use of $1 athlete's foot crème (clotrimazole) and not the antifungal foot powder spray (toftate) that causes diffuse pain and angina, is often effective.  A vegan diet and daily minimum of 50-100 push-ups, 50-100 crunches, 3 mile run and stretches are prescribed by the military for sedentary officers to be free of angina and old age.


Book 9 Public Health Department (PHD)


To amend Chapter 9 Hospitalization of Mentally Ill Nationals Returned from Foreign Countries §321-329 that was transferred to Chapter 4.  Common infectious diseases accounted for 40% of all deaths in 1900 but they accounted for only 4% of all deaths in 2000. Cardiovascular disease (CVD; heart disease and stroke) accounted for 14% of all deaths in 1900 and for 37% in 2000. Cancer accounted for only 4% of all deaths in 1900 but for 23% in 2000.  In 1900, infant mortality was 162 per 1,000 live births and life expectancy at birth was only 47 years. In 1940, infant mortality was 63 per 1,000 live births and life expectancy was 55 years. In 2000, infant mortality was 7 per 1,000 and life expectancy was 77 years.  People suffering from chronic illnesses must throw away their war-robes and death beds, eat a vegan diet of fruits, vegetables and whole grains and exercise regularly.  Medical residency rotations must be limited to less than 60 hours per week.  Payments to highly paid specialists and surgeons must be reduced and primary care and essential medicines promoted.  To secure people against the dangers of the Public Health Service (PHS) and at long last, graduate from the Department of Health Education and Welfare (HEW), with a Public Health Department (PHD), the Centers for Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP (CMS) shall change their name to Medicare and be transferred with all other Mandatory Benefit programs to the supervision of the Social Security Administration (SSA). Children’s Health insurance shall be financed with 100% of the proceeds of the Attorney General’s Master Tobacco Settlement.  The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) shall change its name to Social Work Administration (SWA) and in time become an independent social work agency also responsible for the Agency on Aging and Children and Family Services.  The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) shall change its name to the Drug Evaluation Agency (DEA) and be transferred to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Whereupon the DHHS may adopt the name Public Health Department (PHD) on the condition that an Education Division (ED) to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) be created to secure toxic laboratory supplies.  Epidemiologic statistics shall be improved.  The abuse of bio-medical laboratory supplies is prohibited, infectious disease quarantined and trans-fats banned, to improve public health and hygiene; Quiz…1283
