Guess who escapes murdering people?


There is an important question that begs an answer: is modern medicine the best approach to wellness?
Unfortunately, the unexamined assumption has been yes, but the truth is “not really”.
In some instances of emergency and specific conditions like trauma, fast-growing tumors, and acute heart attacks and strokes, medicine is able to intervene in the disease process, mend broken bones, and stabilize people with heart attacks, etc.
However, 20 or so years ago the government Office of Technology Assessment clearly stated that only 10 – 20 % of medical and surgical procedures have been scientifically proven. That leaves a whopping 80 – 90% that equates to a guessing game. 
In our conscious or unconscious need as human beings to be “taken care of”, we have submitted ourselves to modern medicine. In doing so we must also accept the dark side of medicine.
This trade-off may explain why we seem to be so quick to ignore the mounting evidence that medicine is the number one killer in America.
An aging population wants nothing more than to know how to create a longer and healthier life span and turns to medicine for the answers. However, medicine, purported to base itself on science, has not entered the field of anti-aging or wellness, and is completely ill equipped to even give an opinion. 
At this point, it might be a good time to quote Voltaire, who lived from 1694-1778. He said: “Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less, in human beings of whom they know nothing”. 
Medicine is becoming quite adept at causing iatrogenic (caused by medical intervention) injury.
Every year, over the past 20 years, two or three studies have surfaced showing a growing number of people injured by Rx drugs, including treatment with toxic drugs used for non-life threatening conditions such as birth control.
As these studies slowly came before us, as a society we still held on to the notion that medicine was working in our best interest. No one took the time or trouble to compile all the statistics. No one identified the various areas of medicine, each of which causes iatrogenesis or imagined symptoms, ailments or disorders induced by a physician’s words or action. That was a nice way of saying ‘their speculative bullshit’. And when the different injuries and deaths were added up, the final number was incredible. 
In a recent compilation of deaths due to properly prescribed drugs, drug errors, surgical mistakes, medical procedure mistakes, bedsores, malnutrition in nursing homes, and hospital based infections, it was found that iatrogenic medicine is the leading cause of death in America.
According to research done by the Nutrition Institute of America under the auspices of Dr. Carolyn Dean and Gary Null, it was found that the 2001 heart disease rate was 699,697; the annual cancer death rate was 553,251. But the annual iatrogenic rate was 783,936. 
That’s just the deaths. The number of people injured annually by Rx drugs is 2.2 million; the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections is 20 million; the number of unnecessary hospitalizations annually is 8.9 million; and we really have no way of knowing how many premature deaths can be attributed to overuse of X rays. 
Be prepared for another shock. Most studies that care to delve into the topic of what mistakes actually get reported are pretty clear that only 5%, or 1 in 20 errors, are recorded in black and white. We also know that about 20% of mistakes can end up in death, so the undisclosed 3/4 million deaths may be just the tip of the iceberg.  
To add insult to injury, drugs are synonymous with modern medicine. “Drugs” and “medicine” are interchangeable words in the dictionary and in most people’s minds, and it’s hard to believe that drug-based medicine is only about 100 years old because of its pervasive hold on our society.
With the discovery of the “Germ Theory”, medical scientists convinced the public that infectious organisms were the cause of illness, not their lifestyle and dietary choices.
Finding the “cure” for these infections proved much harder than anyone imagined. Right from the beginning, chemical drugs promised much more than they delivered. But far beyond not working, the drugs also caused incalculable side effects.
The drugs themselves, even when properly prescribed, have side effects that can be fatal. Fully half the drugs prescribed are eventually pulled from the marketplace due to undeniable side effects. By then, the drug companies have laughed all the way to the bank pocketing billions of dollars in profits from an unsuspecting society and are busily marketing the next catastrophe. 
The leading causes of adverse drug reactions are antibiotics (17%), cardiovascular drugs (17%), chemotherapy drugs (15%), and analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents (15%). It is, however, probably impossible to estimate the morbidity and mortality due to drugs such as synthetic hormone replacement therapy and birth control pills taken by millions of Americans. 
And we haven’t even scratched the surface by not addressing the horrors of Ritalin and Prozac and the mass destruction of shootings and killings at public places by people subjected to these drugs by a psychiatric agenda that never does any tests or blood work and yet throws out the ADHD and Autism labels at will just to push drugs and control people that possibly think out of the box.
NBC’s “Dateline” wondered if your doctor is moonlighting as a drug rep. After a year-long investigation, they reported that because doctors can legally prescribe any drug to any patient at any time for any condition, drug companies heavily promote “off-label”, and frequently inappropriate and non-tested uses of these medications in spite of the fact that these drugs are only approved for specific indications for which they have been tested.  
How modern medicine has come to be the number one killer in America is as incredible as it is horrifying. Doctors don’t think of themselves as killers, but as long as they promote toxic drugs and don’t learn non-toxic options, they are virtually pulling the trigger on helpless patients and transforming the Hippocratic Oath into the Hypocritic Oath. 
So, what can you do to escape this dependence on modern medicine? Well, maybe there really is no escape but there sure can be a decrease in the dependence by putting your health back in your hands.
If you are eating the flesh of rotting cow bodies, or rotting pig bodies, or rotting fowl bodies, or rotting fish bodies, or dairy products, you need to stop. That includes “range fed” as well. Come on, do you really think that some animal not in a CAFO is running up to someone with a gun or a knife and begging, “Kill me, kill me, please, kill me”.
In reality, when any creature is faced with harm or death, anxiety sets in. Adrenalin pervades the body as do fear hormones. And even though this is what people are eating we are confused as to why there is so much hostility, fear and anxiety in the world. There is so much truth in that old saying, “You are what you eat”.
If you are eating refined grains like white flour products and white rice, you need to switch to whole grains like brown rice, red rice, wild rice, millet, Quinoa, buckwheat, etc. And if our “daily bread” was so great, why is there so much gluten intolerance? Gee, do you think the additives and synthetic chemicals could have anything to do with that?
If you are eating the menstrual cycle of chickens (eggs), you need to stop.
If you are eating malasadas, which are popular in Hawaii and donuts, which the police love, which are nothing more that balls of white flour covered in sugar and cooked in grease, you need to stop.
If you are shopping in supermarkets and not reading labels, you need to start.
The rule is two-fold: if you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it; and, if man made it, don’t eat it.
If you are still ingesting embalming fluid through diet drinks containing Aspartame, you need to stop.
If you are using “Splenda” (sucralose), which is produced from chlorine, or neurologically damaging Aspartame, which was thrust upon us by Donald Rumsfeld just so he could become rich, as sweeteners, you need to stop.  
Everything you are preparing to eat can be transformed into nutritious fare by switching the ingredients.
Whole for refined; tofu and analogs for flesh; organic for pesticide and insecticide laden soy, rice, cotton, sugar, and corn; almond, rice or hemp for dairy milk; and egg-less for egg mayonnaise.
If you don’t have a clue, get some vegetarian cookbooks and shop in natural food stores. Be careful though as most of their products contain MSG euphemisms.
Listen to “Health Talk”. It’s a call-in show and I will gladly answer your questions. Feel free to contact me at any time. If you can’t tune in, go to and listen to uploaded shows, or on Saturday morning at 8AM Hawaii time log in on your computer to, and listen to my show as it is being streamed. 
You are and should be responsible for your health. Not your doctor, not your health care provider, not your neighbor, you!
Besides, don’t you think that all that money you spend on prescription drugs could be put to a more enjoyable use if it were at your disposal?
Remember, the marathon of life starts with the first step. Don’t be afraid to take that step.

When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.

Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".

Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.

I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.

But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.

So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.

Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.

In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.

My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.

The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.

Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
