Hospitals & Asylums 








April 2012


By Anthony J. Sanders


The study of medicine, because I am not fit to run a marathon although I jog four miles a day slowly, continues from before World Health Day, April 4, though Armed Forces Month, May.  I hope the pain from todays tooth extraction and endodontic therapy will not deter me from writing three articles treating on the GI, heart and lungs this month.  Reviewing the antifungal prescription of the podiatrist I discovered that the primary prophylaxis for acute myelogenous leukemia [AML] and myelodysplastic syndrome [MDS] caused by invasive pulmonary Aspergillus spp. are the antifungals Sporanox (itraconazole) and Noxafil (posaconazole oral suspension).  Because penicillin is a mold that is particularly effective against meningitis and otitis media, high in the cranium, I was given to theorize that cancers of the brain and breast tissues may be caused by a mold, possibly an Aspergillis species.  Mold is generally treated as a fungus with antifungal medicine, hypothetically fluconazole for the brain, and usually intravenously in intensive care.  More cancer research is needed but the best approach to auto-immune cancers that cannot be cured by diet and exercise alone, seems to be to discover the appropriate primary prophylaxis from amongst the antibiotics, antifungals and antivirals on the market before exterminating the human “retard” cells with intravenous anti-neoplastics and radiation treatment.  Antifungals are extremely expensive and require lengthy courses for severely immune-compromised patients who should be subsidized. 


Tutorial on Psychiatric Drug Abuse HA-18-4-12


Psychiatric drug abuse has become rife since the closure of many psychiatric hospitals in the latter half of the 20th century without completing discrediting the slave trade and shifting Medicare and Medicaid payments from psychiatry and mental health to social workers with access to HUD Section 8 and SSI.  Hypnotic, sedative and antipsychotic drugs are the leading cause of fatal drug overdose, 15% of fatalities reported to the Poison Control Center. Dementia may be caused by statin drugs. The pharmaculture in foster care is known for being particularly excessive.  The 20% rise in the autism diagnostic tic this decade is quite likely to be caused by one time exposure to atypical antipsychotics or Ritalin that can be treated with one dose of antiparkinsonian drugs, ie. benztropine (Cogentin) or Amantadine (Symmetrel).  This is not the first time that psychiatric drug side-effects have had dramatic epidemiologic consequences.  Thalidomide was recalled when it was found to cause birth defects.  The doubling in the rate of diabetes in the United States can be traced to the marketing of Olanzapine (Zyprexa) by the Indiana Corporation Eli Lilly.  Atypical antipsychotics seem to have been designed to cause tics with one regular dose, a symptom that took a year to develop a permanent untreatable condition of tardive dyskinesia with standard antipsychotics.  Risperidone (Risperdal) seems to be the only atypical antipsychotic that doesn’t cause sedation or muscular side-effects.  Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) have replaced Tricyclic Antidepressants (TCAs) and Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs) for the treatment of chronic anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression.  Although its manufacturer, Eli Lilly, claims is causes no side-effects Fluoxetine (Prozac) is known by the FDA to cause over 200 side-effects.  Paroxetine (Paxil), Fluvoxamine (Luvox) and Citalopram (Celexa) can be purchased online. The antidepressant Bupropion (Wellbutrin, Zyban) has been found to improve the outcome of smoke cessation by 50%.  For stress management there is no substitute for independent athletic scholarship.  For optimal performance a vegan diet, daily exercise, newspaper and magazine reading are needed.  To solve mental problems check out the relevant books from the library, do push-ups and sit-ups between chapters, jog daily, apply notes to your citation of statute and turn in your homework.    


Defective Columbia ™ and Nike Lunarlon™  Running Shoe Reflex HA-10-4-12


Approximately 80 percent of all foot problems can be attributed to ill-fitting footwear.  After my Nike and Brooks collaborative running shoes wore out I bought Nike Lunalon™ running shoes whose plastic heel brace broke in less than a week and pierced the cloth to press against the Achilles tendon of my right foot, I went through five pairs of running shoes in the gouty month of March.  This is the first time the Nike™ has failed me.  I unfortunately returned the Goodwill cross-trainers that might have made me strong to the free box and became crippled with sesamoiditis of the left big toe targeted by two of the running shoes.  This crippling injury was caused by a dimple in the cheapest new running shoe in the store that developed in the rain after running two marathons in a week.  The Columbia™ display with the same big toe joint dimple strongly implies a manufacturer’s defect.  Both Columbia™ and Nike™ clearly need industrial communication and collaboration to procure gout free running shoe textile fabric under the Federal Trade Commission Act to help justify the voluntary recall of these defective products.  The best approach to recovery from foot injuries are periods of two week increments.  Painful activity must be stopped completely for five days to two weeks.  Treat with ice and crutches.  In 1994 there were about 140,000 job-related foot injuries, 40,000 of them toe injuries, causing an estimated $3.5 billion in economic damages. Studies show that 75 percent of Americans experience foot problems of a greater or lesser degree of seriousness at some time in their lives. Tinea pedis fungus is implicated in 99% of athlete’s foot and nail infections.  Foot bacteria also flourishes in moisture.  Elder care prescribes antifungal foot powder.  The effectiveness of oral antifungals is 60-80%.  The re-infection rate is 15% but can be as high as 25% in diabetics.  Serious adverse reactions are less than 0.5% and this class of pharmaceutical antifungals leads to NOXAFIL (posaconazole oral suspension) the primary prophylaxis of aspergillosis in immunocompromised individuals at high risk of invasive disease (i.e., neutropenic patients with acute myelogenous leukemia [AML] or myelodysplastic syndrome [MDS], hematopoietic stem cell transplant [HSCT] recipients with graft-versus-host disease [GVHD]).  Reflexologists are recommended to prescribe antibiotics for heart disease, metronidazole (Flagyl ER) for non-cancerous liver disease, treated with Human Immune Globulin IV in cases of cancer, so often denied, as well as the broad spectrum antifungal Sporonox (itraconazole) and Lamisil (terbinifine hydrochloride) for Tinea pedis.          


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.  In the 20th century considerable progress was made eradicating communicable diseases, in the 21st century medical science must begin to communicate about the laboratory pathogens that are theoretically causing the vast majority of non-communicable diseases for which institutional Ethics Committees are a more promising cure than science.  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 must be reduced and primary care 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) the Centers for Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP (CMS) shall change their name to National Health Insurance (NHI) and be transferred with all other Mandatory Benefit programs to the management 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 and trans-fats banned…1288
