Jason Hartman is joined by Dr Allen Francis to discuss how important changing diagnosis methods in the US has been, and the general trend in drug usage it has produced. The number of people currently dependent on things like anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, and anti-psychotic drugs, is beyond comprehension.

Key Takeaways:

[1:50] Current usages of anti-depressants or psychological medicines in America are incredible

[3:50] Drug companies are targeting consumers, causing them to ask for (and receive) billions of dollars in unneeded prescriptions.

[7:40] Dr Frances hopes that prescription drug usage will follow the trend line smoking has been on for the last 20 years.

[9:10] Simply paying primary care doctors more would allow them to give each patient more time, and would probably transform medical standards in the US.

[13:20] Our current ‘let’s hope for the best’ mindset has only caused more problems

[15:15] After mass shootings we always talk about gun violence, but ignore the issue of what drugs the shooters had been taking

Genae Girard sued Myriad Genetics, and her victory may have changed the course of humanity. Genae was the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit against the U.S. Patent Office and Myriad Genetics. Myriad had been allowed to patent human genes connected with breast and ovarian cancer, and also allowed to monopolize the testing procedure.

When Genae was diagnosed with having a cancer causing gene in her 30s, she wanted to get a second opinion. That was when she discovered that only one company (Myriad) could do the test, and they weren't going to redo it. The US government had been allowing companies to patent genes, and Genae's victory have voided many of the patents that were pending.

The UNANIMOUS Supreme Court decision declared it unconstitutional to patent anything that exists in nature. The justices also reprimanded Myriad by creating an environment that hurt every woman with the same diagnosis, and for making decisions that hurt potential healthcare for those impacted.

Today’s approach to good health is constantly shifting with new research and awareness. The FDA makes changes to the food pyramid when new studies show many of the quantities and foods in the food groups are not as healthy as once believed. Jason Hartman interviews Matt Stone, independent author and health researcher of 180DegreeHealth.com. Matt shares how incredibly misinformed people are about many conditions and diseases, such as obesity, Type II diabetes, allergies, heart disease and cancer. Matt tells about how restrictive diets don't impact metabolism like you'd expect, Vitamin D deficiencies, and other common health mistakes. After years of research, Matt has come up with the “180 Degree of Opposites”:
– Eat more, exercise less.
– Saturated fat is the healthiest type of fat
– For treating obesity, the best diet is a high calorie diet
– Saturated fat is the best fat for reducing heart disease risk
– Carbohydrates are Good for Type 2 Diabetics
– Spend more time in the sun, without sunscreen
– Heredity has much to do with our health problems, but has absolutely nothing to do with genes
– Germs do not cause disease, poor health does

In 2005, Matt launched an independent investigation into human health through disciplines as diverse as nutrition, exercise, the culinary arts and traditional agriculture, to paleopathology and psychoneuroendocrinology. When he learned that current food beliefs are not sensible nor are they in line with history, 180DegreeHealth was born; as the name implies, Matt is trying to make society do a 180 to our standard health advice and a 180 on the alarming health trends of today, including the dramatic and exponential rise of obesity, type II diabetes, tooth decay, crooked teeth, mental disorders of all kinds, autoimmune disease, allergies and asthma, heart disease, cancer, early puberty, and even nearsightedness.

After a cancer scare, where researchers questioned him about his exposure to chemicals from common household items such as weed killers, glue, detergents, plastic meat wrap, etc, McKay Jenkins started doing his own research on the toxins that are getting into our bodies and environment. Jason Hartman and McKay Jenkins discuss what McKay found that led him to write his book, What’s Gotten into Us? Staying Healthy in a Toxic World.

Before his surgery for a benign tumor in his abdomen, McKay came across many people with various types of cancers and started wondering just how many chemicals we’re exposed to every day. The number was staggering. The toxins are all over. Leached into our environment and ingested through our air, food, water, and numerous household items and lawn care products. Even samples of our water show pharmaceuticals; mattresses contain neurotoxins that break down over time; children’s clothing contains flame retardants; many pots and pans are coated with Teflon. And that's just a start. Body burden studies that are designed to reflect the amount of toxins in a person’s body reveal high levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals in blood samples.

McKay talks about the lack of regulations written in the interest of large corporations rather than protecting consumers. Corporatocracy want consumers to shop without thinking; putting chemicals that are ILLEGAL in Europe into cosmetics here in the USA. Warning labels aren't required on cosmetics, yet the same degreaser found in the hardware store carries a warning lable.

In addition to his book, What’s Gotten into Us, McKay is the author of several other books. He is also the editor of The Peter Matthiessen Reader (Vintage, 2000), an anthology of the American nature writer’s finest and most enduring nonfiction work. McKay holds degrees from Amherst, Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, and Princeton, where he received a PhD in English. He has also written for Outside, Orion, The New Republic, and many other publications.
