Your Feet Are Killing You

In his 1953 book Your Feet Are Killing You, Dr. Simon J. Wikler expounded his theory that just about every medical problem one could imagine (cancer, allergies, tooth decay, etc.) was caused by shoes. His solution was to go barefoot. Ideally all the time. His theory was summarized in The Quarterly Review of Biology (Dec 1954): The title of this book is not used as an eye-catching facetious comment about a foot-sore individual. The author, described as a “Doctor of Surgical Chiropody,” uses the words in their literal sense. He believes that foot imbalance is responsible for such “degenerative diseases” as cancer, rheumatic fever, chronic fatigue, diseases of the uterus, sexual disturbances, neuroses, essential hypertension, chronic alcoholism, narcotic addiction, allergies, eyestrain, and dental caries. He postulates that proper foot care will do… Read More

Study confirms that fluoride causes weight gain and depression

(NaturalNews) The debate over water fluoridation goes back to the 1940s when communities began fluoridating water to prevent tooth decay. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the fluoridation of water was one of the greatest public health achievements of the 20th century. Fluoride is a natural mineral found in soil and water in varying amounts. It is believed to combat tooth decay and cavities by making enamel more resistant to bacteria.

For decades, fluoride has been forced upon us… Read More

1995: A Brief Account of the Fluoridation And Hip Fracture Problem

by John R. Lee, M.D.* June 30, 1995 The costs and health effects of osteoporotic fractures in the US are enormous. A study by the Department of Preventive Medicine and Environmental Health, U. of Iowa, recently calculated that the life time risk of any fracture of the hip, spine or distal forearm is almost 40% in white women and 13% of men from age 50 years onward. Hip fractures account for 67-79% of fracture-related dependent functioning, 87-100% of fracture-related nursing home placements, and 87-96% of short-term fracture costs. 1 The total cost of fracture care is now about $9 billion/year. It is estimated that about 350,000 hip fractures occur per year and the incidence is rising.   In an effort to treat osteoporosis and prevent hip fracture, four US studies have examined… Read More
