Graveyard Shift, a probable cause of cancer

So now, finally, experts have come to the conclusion that graveyard shifts, or working at odd hours are a probable cause of cancer!

I agree that this must be disseminated to all concerned, from the employees, employers and the government institution. Aside from the usual health industry, police force, utilities, we have a sudden increase in the number of call centers here in the Philippines.

Already, I have been seeing a lot of patients from this industry. Unfortunately for them, the REAL cause of their illness is their unfanthomable, erratic schedules of work!

I already foresee a big jump in health issues in this industry, and now adding insult to injury, cancer!

I hope people will start doing things right to correct this problem or more oncologists will be needed in this country.

Erythropeitin woes

The makers of Aranesp, an erythropoeitin stimulating agent has come out with a website advising patients to fight back and get back the Medicare to cover for treatment for anemia.

I wonder what will the patients do now if their RBC comes falling down! What a mess this is

BARS access energy therapy

I recently met 2 wonderful persons who happen to practice BARS access therapy. They came and talked to me about helping one another in treating patients.

We hit off pretty well immediately. I was very impressed with both of their energy and genuine drive to help.

I instinctively gave them one of my patients who just had an anxiety attack. She is very worried bout her upcoming CT scans to check for metastasis.

I was glad that my intuition was right about them. I 'm sure I will be working with them more often

Laser Chelation

So far, my experience with laser chelation is still questionable. I have seen good and no effects on a variety of patients.

I wonder where will this business will go to... It looks, smells, feels like a business to me more than a treatment modality. I guess only time will tell.
