Dr. Bruce West-Another Wannabe -Roger Mason
Many of you may have gotten some junk mail for the “Health Alert” newsletter by Dr. Bruce West, who claims he has “Hollywood stars” as his clients. Treating dysfunctional, terminally neurotic, narcissistic, shallow, vain, drug addicted, druken Hollywood stars must be very rewarding. The ad claims “Dr. West is the originator of the holistic newsletter industry back in 1984, with more than 50 others now trying to copy his success with healing.” That one is too funny for words! Another wannabe who wants to be a natural health advocate. He just doesn’t know anything about natural health. Here is someone who has an endless list of Magic Supplements so you don’t have to change your diet or lifestyle. Just take your Magic Supplements to cure your heart disease, high blood pressure, and other problems.
He tells you not to lower your cholesterol because it just doesn’t matter. Cholesterol doesn’t matter? According to Bruce, high cholesterol doesn’t have any predictive value for heart attacks! He’s so stupid he tells you low cholesterol levels are dangerous! What a moron! “He claims there is a, "link between low cholesterol and increased death.” The fact that the largest and longest human studies on heart and artery disease factors have repeatedly shown total cholesterol and triglycerides to be the best predictor of CHD doesn’t seem to faze him. In fact, he’s so stupid he says (these are quotes folks), “Warning: Lowered Cholesterol Increases Risk of Death!”. He goes on to say, “For Americans over age 71, the lower your cholesterol levels, the greater your risk of death.” He actually said that….”the lower your cholesterol”! He also claimed, “Cholesterol has nothing to do with heart disease.” You just can’t make these things up folks.
He also hates low fat diets. “Dr. West is the first to prove that a low-fat diet can make heart pat-ients more sick.” He loves to eat meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy foods. Somehow he equates low fat diets with chemicalized, highly refined, sugar filled junk foods. What does sugared junk food have to do with low fat diets? Bruce goes on, “The ‘experts’ say that a low-fat diet is a healthy diet. Unfortunately, research says that’s just not true.” Folks, the international, published, epidemiological studies for decades consistently show that the more fat you eat- especially saturated animal fasts- the more coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancers of various kinds, obesity, and every other disease you’ll suffer from. Americans eat more fat (42% fat calories and nearly all animal fats) than anyone else, and suffer from more health problems than any other country. The English, Germans, French, Australians, New Zealanders, Austrians, Swiss, Canadians, and other affluent industrialized countries, all eat more fat than anyone else (due to prosperity ironically), and suffer from more diseases of all kinds than anyone else.
He recommends a product called “Vasculin” as another Magic Supplement. What is Vasculin? Pricey cow heart extract from those nitwits at Standard Process. If you need a good laugh go look up their website www.standardprocess.com. Seriously, he’s selling expensive, useless cow heart extract. You think your poor old author makes this stuff up late at night don’t you? Truth is al-ways stranger than fiction as we all know. He recommends overdosing on huge, toxic amounts of iodine among other idiotic ideas.
Flax oil is one of the most important supplements you can take regardless of your age. Flax is the best source of omega-3 fatty acids in the world. My books constantly recommend it. Flax is great stuff, but Bruce says you can cure schizophrenia in 90 days by giving them flax oil and B-vitamins. Gosh, that sure is a heavy claim. Where are the clinicals on that one? Why not shut down all the mental hospitals? This guy defines the term “moron”.
He believes in curing cancer naturally with “protomorphogens” (PMGs). That sounds pretty convenient. Why change your diet, take all those supplements, balance your basic hormones, exercise, fast, and drop your bad habits, when you can just gulp down some PMGs? Your author goes over 100,000 abstract entries every year and never once came across the term “protomorphogens” in the last 40 years of research. A MEDLINE search proved this is just a made-up promotional term without scientific basis. What are they? More useless, pricey cow organ extracts from Standard Process. He goes on to say, “In fact, the fastest way to get cancer is to stop eating fat! If you have cancer, the fastest way to lose the battle is to go on a low-fat diet.” This man has brain damage obviously. .High fat diets are one of the basic causes of all cancers and most diseases.
Please look at the cholesterol chart on page 10 of my book Lower Cholesterol Without Drugs. The MRFIT Study shows that the higher your cholesterol levels the more deaths from CHD. These facts simply cannot be argued with and are just a tiny fraction of the many studies available on cholesterol and high fat diets in the published literature. He actually charges money for this stupidity- and there are people who actually pay for this insanity.
