    I understand why u get upset, but lifes too short to let things like that bother you ya know. Everyone has an opinion and they re entitled to that whether you agree or disagree. No point in letting things get to you. I respect your opinion and I respect force of greens, both of you are very intelligent individuals who have different views on one subject, when in the grand scheme of things im sure you two probably have alot more in common than differences

    Mr. Cooper, I have no interest in arguing with you nor debating with you on this. My demeanor is calm, my attitude and thoughts are progressive and I have an open mind. You stated that you will not change your way of thinking, therefore the inability or the lack of will/desire to be open to change suggests a narrow-minded thought process. Congratulations to your friends who dedicate themselves to solving the issues Mr. Cooper. My statement was not an attack on you, the good doctors out there who respect the medicine they prescribe and don't abuse the patients, or your friends. My statements do not reflect those of Andro Factory or it's affiliates. Please drop the subject and move on.

    That antidepressants don't always work is a testament to the plasticity of the brain, not the inability (or lack of desire) of pharmaceutical companies to make an effective drug. You can also thank Western medicine for the fact that you're still alive. But hey, vaccines prevent diseases, so that's probably a hoax too
    If PES discovered a pill to cure cancer what do you think would happen to the economy world wide? PES might be rich but the economy would be in a huge mess. Controlling any disease is where the big money is at. You're on medication the rest of your life.

    Exactly. Why give someone a 'magic cancer cure', when you can lock them into chemotherapy for several increments of 4 years at a pop. I'd rather die healthy at 60 than to live to 75+, spending time debilitated in a hospital getting chemotherapy as the cost exceeds what my insurance will pay (if I have it) while all my assets go into collections to make up for the bill.

    Unfortunately cancer treatment is a huge industry. I read an article by a doctor several years ago stating that we have to quickly find a cure for AIDS before it's treatment became an industry of it's own.

    Good point, BBB. More disease = more untapped markets.

    Man I hope it's not really like this.

  9. I think of it as the exact opposite. You have millions of people with all these comorbidities such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, parkinsons. These diseases limit work capabilities, spending, productivity and our taxes pay for their bills which hinders economic growth. Not to mention the vast differences between CA types, its highly doubtful one drug etc will cure all types or even multiple types. Medical patents last I think 5 years, drug companies only really make big money in those years then generics come out and profits are so so. There is plenty of so called fish in the sea as far as chronic illnesses, simply curing one isn't going to threaten insurance companies. Pharm companies are the ones making the bank anyways,not most insurance companies ( pending your plan profit v non profit).

    braskibra, I'm with you in it that I see more logic in your way. Patents can be extended by simply marketing something for a different purpose, such in the case of buproprion. People who smoked cigarettes and took the atypical antidepressant 'Wellbutrin' were likely to at least cut down on cigarettes, if not quit entirely. They'd be dependant on the med, but oh well. Revive buproprion as a treatment for smokers and call it Zyban, extend the patent. Slightly modifying the molecule and marketing the drug for the same purpose is another way, as with the old drug 'Provigil' and the new drug 'Nuvigil'.

  12. Yeah man its always good to have discussion even if opinions shud differ, it stimulates food for thought

    I guess the way I see it:
    Insurance companies: want people healthy, more people healthy means they make more simple as that. They don't want chronic diseases around as they are the ones flipping the bill for it. They make their money on people like us, healthy and don't use our insurance for much.

    Pharm companies: Want whatever product their vested in to be used. I think this is where your point earlier stated applies, I believe in a free market where competition creates the drives for cures. If one pharm comp can produce say a cure for breast ca, while simultaneously decreasing a ***** comapinies profits then there's no doubt in my mind the product would be brought to light.

  13. Did you know that breast cancer rates can be cut by as much as 77% by supplemental vitamin D3 (Dr. Mercola <[email protected]>)? I3C can help even further by controlling E2. And then there is supplemental iodine. People who have large amouts of iodine in their diets don't get breast cancer. Is anyone other than the supplement industry extoling the virtues of vitaman supplementation? We need to keep this industry free of government regulations as much as possible. Unfortunately unscrupulous suppliers are going to ruin it for all of us.

  14. Yes vitamin D is an interesting topic in prevention of ca, new evidence is promising and hopefully clinical trials will be initiated soon. Many types of ca rates can be reduced by simply exercising. I agree the FDA bans so many items that are just unnecessary, 6 oxo and atd come to mind. Unfortunately I think the oversight of our industry is only going to get worse.

  15. Enough of the quackery.

    This started out as a really good thread but has now turned into something entirely different.

  17. Interesting article from a medical news site on DHEA and vitamin D:
    Taking a DHEA supplement combined with vitamin D and calcium can significantly improve spinal bone density in older women, according to a new study from a Saint Louis University scientist and his colleagues at Washington University.

    "The results of our study are very promising. Similar studies have demonstrated much smaller benefits for bone than we found. However, and vitamin D[/URL] deficiencies, which are present in half of older adults, may have prevented DHEA from improving bone density in the earlier studies," said Edward Weiss, Ph.D., associate professor of nutrition and dietetics at Saint Louis University's Doisy College of Health Sciences and lead author of the study.
    "In our study, we supplemented all participants with calcium and vitamin D to ensure that deficiencies were not present. This may explain why our study showed more favorable effects on bone density."
    DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), a naturally occurring steroid hormone[/URL] produced in the[URL="http://www.news-medical.net/health/What-Does-the-Adrenal-Gland-Do.aspx"]adrenal gland, gonads and brain, decreases with age. According to Weiss, low DHEA concentration has been associated with low bone density, which lead researchers to question whether restoring DHEA levels could improve or preserve bone health.
    The two-year study divided men and women, ages 65 to 75 years old, into two groups. The first group received the DHEA supplement, vitamin D and calcium for two years. The control group received a placebo, vitamin D and calcium for the first year and then received the DHEA supplement the second year in place of the placebo.
    The effects of the treatment differed for men and women. After the first year, women in the test group experienced an approximate 2 percent increase in bone density, while women in the control group did not see an increase. After the second year when both groups took the DHEA supplement, women in the test group experienced an additional 2 percent increase for a total of approximately 4 percent, while women who switched from placebo to DHEA also experienced an approximate 2 percent increase.
    The same treatment, however, did not offer similar benefits for older men. Instead, men in both the test and control groups experienced a 1 to 2 percent increase in spinal bone density. According to researchers, the results suggest that vitamin D and calcium supplements, which were give to both groups, could be responsible for the increase in bone density.
    The results of the study are promising for older women. According to Weiss, patients who achieve similar increases of 2 to 4 percent in spinal bone density with the help of medication experience a 30 to 50 percent reduction in risk of spine fractures.
    Further, researchers say that the increase in spinal bone density experienced by women in the test group who took DHEA for two years, is at least as effective as other current therapies including estrogen and bisphosphonates, a class of prescription drugs that increases bone density.
    Freedom means nothing here.

  18. Continued...
    However, like other therapies, the benefits of DHEA supplements were limited to spinal bone density. Neither men nor women experienced an improvement in hip bone density. Weiss says the hip may respond more slowly to bone-enhancing therapies than the spine, thus requiring more time to see a beneficial effect. More research is needed though."In addition to its beneficial effects on bone, DHEA replacement may have other benefits including improvements in risk factors for diabetes and heart disease, improvements in immune function, and improvements in psychological health," Weiss said.
    While the research findings are promising, Weiss says that people should consult with their doctor before taking DHEA, which is an over-the-counter dietary supplement.
    "Although DHEA is generally considered safe for consumption at 50 mg per day, it increases estrogen and testosterone levels which in turn could increase cancer risk," Weiss explained. "Therefore, DHEA supplementation should be avoided in men and women who have had cancer or who have a strong family history of cancer until further research can establish whether or not it is safe for these individuals."
    The study was funded with grants from the NIH, NIH General Clinical Research Center and NIH Clinical Nutrition Research Unit. Findings were published in the May 2009 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
    Study coauthors include Krupa Shah, Luigi Fontana, Charles P. Lambert, John O. Holloszy and Dennis Villareal.

    Reminds me of a old movie scene from an 80s flick, I think it was James Earl Jones in the movie Coming to America. He was a rich African businessman at a party talking with some other rich US businessmen. One of these men had done some business with his enterprise, and didn't realize until they'd started talking. Anyway, James said something to the effect that 'My company discovered a cure for the common cold, and your company paid me for it.' Then the other guy says 'Ohh, we paid you for the cure?' And James says 'No. You paid me to keep my mouth shut!' It was just a stupid movie, but I never forgot that scene or the look on the other guy's face, lol.

    Of course there is big money in cures, Cooper, and many pharma companies are crazy rich. Did they make all their money pushing pills? I don't know, I don't sit on their board, but perhaps there is more money to be had sitting on that cure rather than marketing it? I have a passion for medicinal chemistry and pharmacology just like you, but perhaps we should be defending that, and not be so naive or presumptuous to think we can reason like billion dollar businessmen reason. It doesn't take a mind for conspiracy to recognize that big companies have different motivations than do guys like most of us, know what I mean?

    That's a very interesting exchange from that movie, Dr. D. While I am not outright saying something totally radical to the effect that pharma is trying to poison us, but I can see the business model behind most companies and it is too disgusting for most to even taste. Create a disease/disorder (or in the American Psychiatric Association's case, just make **** up and call it the DSM), patent a 'treatment', offer incentives to salesmen (many doctors, not all), give samples to get the customer (patient) dependent or addicted, and then you are chemically, psycologically, physiologically, neurologically, etc. almost guaranteed a customer for life.

  22. That must be why there exist no cure for any disease and why we have never virtually eradicated any disease. There is just too much money to keeo peoole sick. Yup that makes perfect sense... :/

    JudoJosh, my apologies for perpetuating the topic of government & politics. Look, I empathize with your point of view and I'm not grabbing and clinging to my statements as a stronghold, per se. I respect your opinions and statements and whether or not you respect mine, that's fine. I just see a different schematic as the primary purpose for what drives pharmaceutical corporations. I see it as a business to make money and even if that means at the expense of the patient's health.

  24. The car industry keeps coming out with more and more expensive cars that contain craper and craper parts.

    The electronics industry, clothing industry, etc all have us addicted to getting the next new model/ fashion that we spend every penny we have to get it even if that means going in debt. By doing so we have enslaved millions of people in third world countries.

    Or food industry keeps producing more and more unhealthy foods that are designed to be addicting. Making us lazier, fatter, and stupider. Not to mention companies are coming out stating they don't have to put all the ingredients on there labels now.

    Do I have to mention the banking industry, or government corruption?

    But when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry I'm supposed to believe they are a bunch of saints who have our best interests out for us.

    Sorry if this sounds a little conspiracy, but hey when it comes down to it we all have an underlying agenda with everything we do.

    I wish people like cooper the best of luck, someone who actually takes the time to learn as much about there profession as possible, and has people's well being in mind at all times. Even to give out free advice on AM.

    Back to topic, I have taken dhea through out the years and loved it, to me I actually feel a little more pep with it, and have noticed the faster recover that I have read has been noticed in some studies.

  25. Back to DHEA, is it all DHEA supplements that would help with recovery or is it only "fancy" DHEA supplements from Androfactory that work?
    No disrespect to Androfactory, I use them also, just wanted to know if I can get benefits from cheap brands also?
