Angel Wing Lyme Disease Support Group
A very informative site that is still growing.

Health and Laughter
We knew it was good, but .... then also, there is Patch Adams with
Health Care at the Gesundheit Institute
Perhaps bringing back into medicine what it has lost under tryanny of insurance, HMO's, and governmental meddling, and adding what all Old Wives knew but what modern medical science couldn't prove until recently. It seems to me that there is a very general message there.

Physicians Need To Fight The Business Model Of Medicine
Bernard Lown, M.D, Hippocrates 12(5): 25-28, 1998.
Copyright 1998 Time Publishing Ventures Inc.

Physicians Who Care
A National Organization of Physicians and Patients
who've had enough of HMOs and "Mangaged Care".

Any sugesstions for additions to this page are welcome. I've tried to weed out crackpot left and right nonscience and pseudoscience while retaining alternative points of view in terra incognita. Quackery is, I hope, avoided while not throwing out possibly cutting edge advancements. This amounts to judgment call on my part; I'm not infallible.

Medical science, in spite of over 4000 years of physicians, has gotten real only within the past 150 years. Though the body of medical knowledge is now staggering, it is still only in its infancy. As in physics, the hardest of hard sciences, despite the number of answers, they are outweighed by questions and unknowns.

This page is intended for professionals and informed lay people.

It is official that Second Hand Smoke is not a Hazard [Link]. The alleged and sought for correlation (not causation) between lung cancers and exposure to second hand smoke, also called passive smoking is nonexistent.
The sought national and international controls on tobacco have nothing to do with health issues. Control is about power, its uses and abuses. As for the current move afoot for a growing numbers of international controls and unifications: one neck, one leash.
The fact that this "politically incorrect" study has been suppressed is a perfect example of what happens when science becomes politicized: it ceases to exist on its stated terms, and becomes a governmental cudgel. Resistance is futile; join the mob of sheep that you may be shorn, milked dry and slaughtered.
[Benjamin Franklin on Liberty]
