Why Surgeons Need Cockpit Training

Would you buy an airplane ticket if the pilot refused to check his instrument panel before taking off? You’d probably would run for the woods, choose another airline or decide it’s safer to go by train. But a recent study shows that some surgeons are not following proven surgical guidelines for ...

EP = a2 Has Killed More People than E=mc2

It’s been said Einstein’s E=mc2 (energy=mass x C speed of light squared) is the world’s most important scientific equation. Unfortunately it created the atomic bomb that killed thousands in World War II. But I believe my equation EP = a2 (extra pounds = atherosclerosis squared) is the world’s important medical equation. Regrettably, it’s killing more millions every year than E=mc2.Think again if you believe this is exaggerated.

Consider human obesity. Nothing, including the thousands of books on weight loss and diet, has been able to stop the epidemic of obesity which gets worse world-wide every year.

Nor does anyone have the solution to the problem of increasing numbers of people developing Type 2 diabetes. The U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that one in 13 North Americans have diabetes. And one in four over the age of 65 suffer from this disease.

Then there are an estimated 14 million people in North America who don’t even know they have diabetes!! And millions more have prediabetes, just one step away from diabetes and its complications. All these figures increase every year.

So how does this combination kill? It’s because EP (extra pounds) = a2 (atherosclerosis), causes the rust that collects in all of our arteries as we age. We have known for years that people who are obese or have diabetes or both always develop more of this deadly rust that is composed of fatty deposits and cholesterol.

The deadly trio of obesity, diabetes and heart attack will eventually bring our health care system to its knees. Years ago this scenario was rare. More people died from infection. Now, since we live longer, the Gifford-Jones law has a major effect on longevity with the development of degenerative diseases. Gifford-Jones law states that one disease often leads to another, and another. The best example is that obesity leads to Type 2 diabetes and 50 percent of diabetics die of a heart attack due to atherosclerosis.

The problem isn’t complicated. If all the toilets in the country stopped flushing due to plugged pipes, civilization as we know it would quickly end. If the organs of our body lack oxygenated blood due to plugged arteries, our own lives on this planet end.

It’s been said that you can whip a tired horse only so long before it drops. Extra pounds similarly put tremendous stress on the pancreas. It eventually collapses and stops producing insulin.

When I graduated from The Harvard Medical School 65 years ago only 5 percent of people had Type 2 diabetes and 95 percent was due to genetics. Now, 95 percent develop Type 2 diabetes (better called lifestyle diabetes) due to obesity. And obese children usually become obese adults. This means they face the increased risk of blindness, kidney failure, leg amputation and heart attack.

Atherosclerosis is therefore the ultimate destroyer, gradually decreasing the amount of oxygenated blood and other nutrients that are necessary for all organs. Just as a car cannot run without gas the pancreas and other organs falter without oxygen.

So what is going to happen in the future? The answer is that EP=a2 will continue to kill more than Einstein’s equation. The blunt truth is that only draconian measures by government and citizens will stem the epidemic of obesity and Type 2 diabetes. Hell will freeze over before that happens.

But there is a simple, natural way to put a dent in the progress of the nation’s number one killer, heart attack. Research shows that high concentrations of vitamin C and lysine, now available as Medi-C Plus in Health Food Stores, can reverse atherosclerosis. It’s a revolutionary discovery that deserves the Nobel Prize. But it’s a national tragedy that this research is collecting dust and is being ignored by the medical establishment, particularly cardiologists who should be aware of it.
