Do you believe that there is no mortality benefit for screening mammography and the adverse effects may overwhelm the benefit.(11)  Yes or No ?

The answer is, Yes, as discussed in my previous article on screening mammography, national data on mortality from breast cancer shows no significant reduction in mortality after the introduction of screening mammography.  This was discussed in JAMA by Dr Laura Esserman.(12)

5)  Medical Conspiracy Theory: Do you believe that PPI proton pump inhibitor antacid drugs are overused and misused ?  Yes or No ?

The answer is yes. Antacid Drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPI's) have serious adverse effects of increased rates of fractures, Clostridium difficile infection, and increased risk of pneumonia. (13-18) I discussed the harms and benefits of acid blocker drugs in a previous article . (19)

These first five examples can be found in an editorial in the May 10 Archives of Internal Medicine by Deborah Grady MD.

6) Bone Marrow Transplantation for Breast Cancer

Medical Conspiracy Theory:

Do you believe that bone marrow transplant for breast cancer is a fraud and a scam ? Yes or No ?

The answer is Yes. Starting in the 1980"s, thousands of these procedures were done costing up to 400,000 dollars each.   After a couple of decades of harming thousands of severely ill women, medical studies were done showing the procedure had no merit and it was abandoned.  This incredible story can be found in an  article by Nicholas Gonzalez MD, and also in a book which documents the story called False Hope. (20-22)

More Medical Conspiracy Theories:

Could an FDA approved pain pill called Vioxx cause heart attacks ? Yes or No ?

Yes. Vioxx, a new type of painkiller launched in 1999, was one of the most heavily promoted drugs in history, with sales in 80 countries and a global market of 80 million patients.  The drug Vioxx was withdrawn after it was found to cause 140,000 heart attacks and over 50,000 deaths.(34)

Medical Conspiracy Theory: Does Premarin, a commonly used Estrogen Pill Cause Endometrial Cancer ?  Yes or No ?

Yes, Premarin is a horse estrogen isolated from the urine of pregnant horses.   Available since FDA approval in 1942, Premarin has caused an estimated 15,000 cases of endometrial cancer, representing the largest epidemic of serious iatrogenic disease ever reported.

Medical Conspiracy Theory: Does the Hormone Pill DES (Di-ethyl Stilbestrol) cause cervical cancer in the daughters of women taking this pill ?  Yes or No?

Yes. Many people have forgotten about the disaster of DES, Diethylstilbestrol, the first synthetic hormone invented in 1938.  This carcinogenic, monster hormone was approved by the FDA and given to millions of women from 1940 until it was banned in 1975 when it was shown carcinogenic.  The first report of cervical cancer in the daughters of DES treated women was published in April 1971 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
