In part 2 of my interview with David Moore, he tells us about being a caregiver to his friend and mentor college professor Patti as her health declines and the medical intervenes. When Patti goes in for what she thinks will be a routine 45 minute operation, David waits patiently. When the surgeon comes out after 3 hours and says there were complications, David begins to worry. When Patti survives and gets to the ICU, the surgeons want to do more surgeries to fix what they broke, but David is named in Patti’s medical directive, and he follows her wishes and tries to protect her from what he calls the profiteering of Nazi-esque eugenics programs. SHOW NOTES Aortic valve stenosis for Patti 0:05:15 David's touched on 3 medical errors: his experience with the dental industry; the food we grow and eat and its impact on our microbiome; and the over-treatment of the elderly for profit - David was also taking care of an elderly friend who recently died 0:06:15 David was caretaker for the last 15 years of a friend who was his Department Chair when David was an adjunct professor at UNLV (University Nevada Las Vegas) - about 3 years ago she was diagnosed with aortic stenosis, that means there is valve in the heart that has become over-calcified and is reducing blood flow - this is no big deal unless under high exertion, then it can cause a special kind of fainting spell 0:07:15 She / Patti was 78 years old, they did an echocardiogram and they recommend a surgery called a TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) - a medical device they stick up through the groin arteries and cut out the valve and this device is a cage that is supposed to expand and seal - if it doesn't seal, it is called a leaky valve or heart failure 0:08:15 Instead, Patti went on a marijuana regime, and in 3 years cleaned out her arteries so she didn't require a stent - she did diet changes - a new study just came out saying stents are less effective then diet changes - but during these 3 years she lost 30 pounds and in the pool more often - sure, she wasn't feeling as sprightly as when she was younger, but she was aging well 0:09:15 For those 3 years doctors told her she could drop dead at any moment - she would walk up at night with panic attacks and afraid she was going to die - David explained that it was her sleep apnea, where she stops breathing, and that was causing her panic - the doctors convinced her to get an angiogram - the echocardiogram showed her aortic valve opening at .36 cm - anything below .7 or .8 is consider critical 0:10:15 She lived a sedentary lifestyle, never left the house, David did all of her shopping, she was always on the computer teaching courses online - the angiogram, 9 months after the echocardiogram, showed she a .56 cm opening - according to modern science that is impossible - David attributes this to marijuana and her diet 0:11:15 Her surgeon doesn't have Patti's case history, he wouldn't speak to David in front of a nurse - the cardiologist said they found biomarkers for heart disease, but David pointed out how she had improved 0:12:15 The statistics show there is a 6% chance she'll die during, and a 25% chance she'll die within 12 months of surgery - Patti ends up going for the surgery, she's convinced it will be a 45 minute procedure and she'll be home the next day - TAVR surgery is highly risky, no efficacy, and unproven beyond 3 years 0:13:15 The actual surgery lasted 3 hours - the surgeon came out and told David to 'go home and get some rest and come back in a few hours and Patti will be in ICU, don't worry, the 1st one we put in didn't work, so we're trying a 2nd one' - we haven't put in a pacemaker yet Surgery gone awry 0:14:15 Patti / David did not know this risk factor: that since Patti's aorta was only .36 cm, very calcified, it was obvious a stent would not seal because calcium has jagged edges - it is impossible 0:15:15 The 1st didn't seal, and they played around with it, and then it slipped down and that reduces her blood flow and blood pressure, essentially making her heart die - in that moment her heart is dead - they gave her a bunch of chemicals and put in a 2nd valve up through the 1st and get it to open and seal to the calcified walls - David thinks that once the 1st valve failed they should have gone to open heart surgery 0:16:15 So there is a gap between the valves, they are both leaking, her heart is being mechanically pumped, she's on a breathing tube and they are pumping her full of chemicals / medications - her body is moving as her heart is pounding - Patti's medical directive said she did not want heroic efforts, feeding tubes, etc 0:17:15 David was Patti's power of attorney for medical - they'd been friends for 25 years, and he was her caretaker the last 15 years - then the surgeons put her in ICU and asked for her consent to try to put in a balloon to try to seal - David says they lied to him that a valve was restricting the blood flow, but they actually know the valve implants are leaking 0:18:15 They tried the balloon in a 3 hour surgery, and that didn't work - then another 3 hour surgery to put in a pacemaker - Patti was conscious between the surgeries - after the 1st surgery, instead of following Patti's medical directive, the hospital called her next of kin and they gave permission to keep her alive 0:19:15 The surgeon said that he'd been keeping Patti alive for 5 hours because that's what her sister said - David told him he'd already given him Patti's medical directive, and the surgeon is freaking out - he's worked so hard to keep Patti alive with chemicals - David thinks they should have let Patti die, but the doctors follow the next of kin and do the other surgeries 0:20:15 Then they wanted to do another surgery called 'a cuff' that would force open the slip valve - they had told David the ballon was the last ditch effort, and now they're saying a cuff is the last ditch effort - they had said that if things went wrong in the 1st surgery they would do an open heart surgery - David later found out that there is only a 2% survival rate after failed TAVR surgery - they declined the open heart surgery - David also wanted to decline the cuff because it was torturing Patti 0:21:15 David had a meeting with all the doctors and nurses - he had to threaten to call in the administrators and lawyers - they decide to bring Patti out of sedation to ask if she wants to consent to a cuff surgery, and she does - they wanted David to sign the consent but he refused and left the hospital - David says anyone on death's door would consent to anything David refuses consent for more surgeries 0:22:15 They told David that if he wouldn't sign the consent, they would take Patti off pain medications for 4 hours to get her direct consent - David didn't want her to experience that pain so agreed to sign the consent - however, they were doing exactly what Patti didn't want and had expressed in her medical directive 0:23:15 But somehow the hospital had lost her directive - so they kept Patti in ICU for 48 hours and as they're wheeling her into the operating room for surgery, her heart gave out and she died - the surgeon told David 'her heart is dead, we're not going to do the surgery', a weird mechanical response 0:24:15 This hospital is building a new cardiac wing but they ran out of money - this surgeon sits of the board of the hospital and they sent out a donation form to hospital staff with their pay cheque, basically saying that if they wanted to keep their job, make a donation - David suspects they were trying to increase Patti's insurance pay out 0:25:15 Patti had great insurance, and David feels they were running up the bill - one angiogram cost Patti's insurance $150,000 - the more procedures, the more profit - unnecessary procedures is one of the health care system's biggest expenses 0:26:15 Turning back to the dental board - David was filing complaints and a lot of other people contacted him because he did an public statement - in Nevada the 'open meeting law' - so all licensing boards are required to have public meetings and allow public members to speak, and they can speak for 3 minutes 0:27:15 David was encouraged to make the public statement, his supporters said they would record it - as soon as David starts talking about doctors, David was cut off and not allowed to speak about the corruption - drama unfolds, police arrive, and David is kicked out of the meeting - the dental board applied for an extended restraining order against David so that he can never go back and speak - they claim David threatened their lives - but David had video evidence 0:28:15 David played the video for the judge and she reprimanded the dental board - but the judge also took the dental board's side about the restraining order - David was told by the judge that if he didn't like her decision, he could leave the state of Nevada 0:29:15 The judge was rude to David and tried to get him riled up so she could justify the restraining order - David says Clark County is a small place and all the professionals look out for each other - then Governor Sisolak, a democrat, is elected, ousting the republican - Sisolak has been on a lot of boards 0:30:15 Sisolak started going after the dental board saying 'he'd never seen a more egregious audit in my life' - David sees his chance and starts making public statements at Sisolak's Board of Examiner meetings with District Attorney, Treasurer - David made 3 public statements, and Sisolak liked them Disciplinary Hearing 0:31:15An investigative journalist for the Las Vegas Review Journal writes a multiple part expose, and exposes all the nastiness with the dental board - David submits 3 new dental board complaints against 3 other dentists, totalling 6 complaints (with his other 3) - the dental board assigns one investigator for all 3 new complaints, in violation of the Governor and audits orders 0:32:15 The Governor swoops in and cancels the dental board's meeting and says they all need to come in for a disciplinary hearing for what their doing - instead, they send a republican lobbyist that represents a certain faction of the board, to tender their resignations 0:33:15 So none of the dental board shows up, they all resign - but before they resigned they fired the executive director and the attorney for the dental board - they didn't do that because they were scared of discipline, they did that because David threatened them with a lawsuit that would make them personally liable - there was a Supreme Court decision in 2015 against the dental board in North Carolina - they were trying to block the ability of consumers to access cheaper commercial dental devices 0:34:15 The North Carolina board wanted to make money - but the Supreme Court said that if the board continued to act in an antitrust manner, they would be held personally responsible 0:36:15 Making the board personally responsible was the key into opening the door to make change - the governor passed a bill to set up a patient protection commission, appointed in 2020 0:37:15 Health and Human Services deals with public health, they are not concerned with other aspects of health - David says they need to focus on human success by creating a system that gets the holistic person gets on the health care record 0:38:15 Right now it is very siloed and that increases costs and medical errors - so the solution is to make the members of the medical boards personally responsible and ensure patients are informed about all risk factors - a health record would be a bunch of 'if...then' statements 0:39:15 That patients sign off on on these 'if...then' statements - David says it is all about personal responsibility and tracking everything Health care for profit per procedure 0:40:15 Artificial intelligence would help doctors make decisions - right now the health care system is built on a for-profit per procedure, David would make the system for-profit per success - this would force doctors to look at the whole patient 0:41:15 David hoped to be appointed as a public member on the Governor's commission - David thinks he is a bit confrontational for the doctors taste, but thinks that's what the Governor wants - conflict creates change 0:42:15 David thinks that eventually each state will have protected patient advocacy groups that are situated in every hospital and speak with every patient - there is tons of research evidence that patients should be aware 0:43:15 David says the control mechanism has to be the insurance companies, but if their colluding with the medical industry to maximize profits, we're in trouble, and that's what's happening - the number of medical devices is sky rocketing 0:44:15 David thinks the Governor needs to dictate a vision, and the Commission should fulfill that vision 0:45:15 David will speak again at the Governor's next meeting - David finds patient advocacy very rewarding - David Harold Moore on Linkedin is the best way to connect him - David's website about marijuana neutriceutal is MyLifeBak.com 0:47:15 David says that only by sharing our nightmare stories will change come - regular media is not covering our stories because the whole system has been corrupted by money - David says the solution for the dental industry is simple: minimally invasive, one tooth at a time Connect with David Moore: Website: https://www.mylifebak.com Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidharoldmoore _______________________________________________________________________________________ Be a podcast patron Support Medical Error Interviews on Patreon by becoming a Patron for $2 / month for audio versions.  Premium Patrons get access to video versions of podcasts for $5 / month.

Work hard. Train hard. Rest hard. I have been living with HIV since 1998. I was the first person living with HIV to compete at the triathlon world championships.Thanks to research and access to medications, HIV is not a problem in my life. I have been living with ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) since 2012, and thanks in part to medical error, it is a big problem in my life. Counseling / Research I first became aware of the ubiquitousness of medical error during a decade of community based research working with the HIV Prevention Lab at Ryerson University, where I co-authored two research papers on a counseling intervention for people living with HIV, here and here.  Patient participants would often report varying degrees of medical neglect, error and harms as part of their counseling sessions. Patient Advocacy I am co-founder of the ME patient advocacy non-profit Millions Missing Canada, and on the Executive Committee of the Interdisciplinary Canadian Collaborative Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Research Network. I am also a patient advisor for Health Quality Ontario’s Patient and Family Advisory Council, and member of Patients for Patient Safety Canada.

David Moore does health differently. When David was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer and given 3 months to live, he didn’t follow the usual medical path of radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. When David’s mentor named him in her medical directive, he pushed back hard against the surgeons who wanted to give her more high cost, high risk surgeries to run up their profit. When David’s dentist performed procedures without David’s consent, he went public - and to the state governor - to expose dental board corruption. In part one of this 2 part interview, David Moore shares how an undiagnosed illness lead to stomach cancer, and how he cured that cancer without toxic medications. SHOW NOTES: Childhood trauma 0:05:15 David was born in 1970 and grew up in Cocoa Beach, Florida - David thinks the 70s were a great decade - but his home life was more like bombing in Vietnam - David suffered serious child abuse, emotional trauma, emotional neglect, molested by a babysitter, and on and on 0:06:15 David has 3 older brothers, and they were all drug addicts and highly abusive - David's mother was raped by her father for 10 years - she suffered from narcissistic personality disorder and took it out on her kids - it was an emotional Vietnam - but, from the outside, no one knew what was going on and narcissists are very clever - David's father was aloof and an engineer with NASA and was never home - David loved and adored him 0:07:15 That left David struggling in adulthood - and that can be attributed to traumatic brain wiring, making people more susceptible to addiction - they never experienced unconditional love - childhood trauma is a scourge upon the world, they pass it onto their children - David thinks about 40% of Americans have childhood trauma - but David did have an idyllic childhood, he made sure he was rarely home 0:08:15 David's focus became to empathize with everyone in an effort to understand what was going on - by the time he was 15 he decided to dedicate his life to helping other - he realized all his friends parents were messed up and that messed up the kids - alcoholics, drug addicts - but they were all rich white people, nobody was poor 0:09:15 David couldn't understand until he was in his 40s and realized that his parents suffered childhood trauma too - his mother's abuse was extreme neglect, he was a 'mistake' and she didn't want to have him 0:10:15 David thinks the neural connections didn't connect because he wasn't nurtured, as a result David has a form of autism - but it enabled him to detach from his mother's abuse - and that helped him survive that - he then focused on his friends and getting them away from adults 0:11:15 David's father was David's stability - he adored David, but he didn't speak much 0:12:15 David suspects his father was on the spectrum - he was a loner, didn't socialize - David didn't know until after his father died, that he was in the Office of Strategic Services in World War II, and he was in the CIA his whole time - he was aloof, didn't share a lot - his cover was an electrical engineer working for different government contractors0:13:15The childhood neglect caused him to scream a lot - he would wake up screaming - all the screaming created a high arch narrow palate, and that created a cranio malformation - so David's bite is totally unique Stage 4 stomach cancer 0:14:15David's bite cannot be adjusted because of the malformation - the cranio malformation is called left side bending rotation made it so his left and right mandibular joints were out of place, but not causing pain, but dysfunctional in the sense they weren't normal 0:15:15 As a child David was a sugar addict, and in visiting dentists, he noticed that it was insanely painful - he had a lot of mercury fillings on his upper arch - but they would fall out, he would swallow them - Florida is a weird state 0:16:15 Dentists were drunk and haphazardly prescribing opiates like candy - at 16 he was given percocets - he developed a hatred for dentistry due to all the trauma with them as a child - when he moved to Las Vegas, the veneers on his teeth had cracked and they had to put on a crown - his 2 front veneers are from diving into a shallow pool and breaking his teeth 0:17:15 In Vegas they put on a crown, David is in immense pain, they give him more pain meds, they give him a root canal - the root is so infected and stinks so bad people in the room faint - David realizes the dentist let him suffer for months when he knew David needed a root canal - then David gets Celiac disease, an autoimmune disease and manifested as acid reflux 0:18:15 The Celiac disease caused David to vomit small amounts during the night and his stomach acid ate away his enamel - because celiac was undiagnosed for 5 years he developed stomach cancer - that's when David started to figure things out, the beginning of his journey - the cancer had covered up his stomach villi and he couldn't absorb food and started to starve - by the time he's diagnosed he's in stage 4 cancer and only given 3 months to live 0:19:15 David continues to eat and gets bigger and develops a bowel blockage - they wanted to do chemotherapy but David didn't have insurance - this was in 2014 before Obama Care - David decided to go raw vegan and ingest marijuana - he had read that it can kill cancer, especially if it is localized - it took him 5 years to get cancer-free 0:20:15T o make marijuana bioavailable from eating, it has to be de-carboxylated - breaking off a carbon atom so the cannabinoid can be utilized - so it just has to be heated up for the right amount of time, then ingest and it has huge effects 0:21:15 It is also a psychotropic, as a result neural pathways are decalcified and promotes neurogenesis - most people release their power to a doctor, and David never did that - for the last 7 years of his dental nightmare 0:22:15 Doctors are treated as gods - it is like the wild west - where is all the wisdom? - now doctors are all entrepreneurs and want to make money and pay off their student loans and feel superior to everyone else - what happened to old school dentistry? Dental PTSD 0:23:15 Re marijuana for cancer, David says all the doctors he's talked to, dismiss it with disdain - they deny and delude themselves - if they ever faced the fact that they do more harm than good, they'll have to take responsibility for their actions 0:24:15 David is dealing with the cancer and dental issues at the same time - he'd been to over 30 dentists in 5 years, 99% in the Las Vegas valley - cranio malformation creates crowding of his lower front teeth and that caused pain 0:25:15 The pressure was pushing his teeth outward - even breathing was causing extreme pain - Obama Care had started and that allowed David to access a dentist 0:26:15 David sees a dentist who says he can fix David's upper 6 teeth - David goes for the procedure and is given pain killers and novocaine and as he's upside down in the chair, the dentist starts a hard sell for a full mouth reconstruction - David is scared, dealing with PTSD but says 'no' - the dentist convinces David to do the upper 10 teeth 0:27:15 "HMO" is a type of health insurance but if forces you to go to a HMO doctor - it allows HMO dentists to 'drill for dollars' and make a lot of money - they've been doing it for decades 0:28:15 They try to do as many procedures in as little time as possible to make as much as possible - David experiences extreme pain - just before the dentist finishes, he decides to shave down David's bottom teeth without David's permission - he shaved off 3 - 4 millimetres - as a result, the dentist had changed the guidance of David's mouth, impacting all the muscles in his head 0:29:15 That caused lower back failure and a bulging disc - David had been seeing an Osteopath doctor - to David, osteopathy is the only effective medicine in the world 0:30:15 When osteopathy is combined with an ovo-vegan diet, and marijuana, 80% of disease can be reversed - doctors of osteopathy is about energy 0:31:15 Osteopathy doctors are also MDs, but do 4 more years of education - can prescribe like a regular MD, but also have comprehensive understanding of how the body systems work together - they manipulate energy so the body self heals and reaches homeostasis 0:32:15 The osteopath helped bring David back into balance and out of pain of a herniated disc within 3 weeks without pain medication or surgery - back to the dentists: 2nd dentist tries 3 temporary over 11 months, and pushes David to pay $50k for a full mouth reconstruction0:33:15David saw a number of other dentists, who did not want to treat him or be involved - he finds out that there is a continuing education dental school in Nevada and they teach full mouth reconstruction as a way to help headaches, TMJ pain, etc Filing complain with the dental board 0:34:15 TMJ = mandibular joint pain - the school tells dentists that will increase your revenues by more then 50% guaranteed 0:35:25 They call this 'occlusal science' - but there are other occlusal schools out there and they are awesome - the Dawson Academy is a good school - 'occlusion' just means 'bite' - and if your bite is off, you can get headaches and other problems - to fix that is not about full mouth reconstruction, it is about fixing the bite, and that's what prosthodontists do 0:36:15 Prosthodontists go to an extra 3 years of school - but now there is a for-profit education system that teaches regular dentists about occlusion, and the Dawson Academy is a good one - their approach is 'minimally invasive, one tooth at a time' - David says that if a dentist wants to do more then 1 tooth at a time, they may screw up your bite, and they they'll recommend a full mouth reconstruction for $50k+ 0:37:15 Industry experts say the one occlusion school in Las Vegas is the problem, they practice 'voodoo' science - so everyone knows what's going on, but no one is doing anything about it - its about the money - going from $500k a year income to $1 million, that's a huge bump 0:38:15 There is no standard of care, its crazy - so David figures all this out and speaks out, as a result they attack, avoid and not help David - so he's going to multiple dentists, some of them speak to him off the record 0:39:15 As a result, David has been working with the governor to revamp the entire board licensing system in Nevada - David files a dental board complaint - in every US state there is a dental board that is supposed to be overseeing the dentists and protecting patients, but that's not what happens 0:40:15 For the last 30 years, all the dental boards in America all have licensed practitioners on the board - so that means dentists are overseeing dentists - but they are all in on the game of 'drilling for dollars' - so standards of care can't be developed, they are convoluted - the problem is the for-profit motive, where doctors and dentists have to make money but at the same time are supposed to be helping people 0:41:15 But they cause irreversible harm, and irreversible harm allows them to make money of that patient for the rest of their life - and that's the problem with dentistry - David's dental board complaint is denied, they side with the dentists in spite of egregious conduct 0:42:15 The Nevada dental board assigns one investigator, and that person decides everything - there is no review of the decision, no oversight of the investigator - so a lot of power - that investigator is assigned by the director of the dental board, and that investigator depends on the investigate fees Exploiting elderly patients for profit 0:43:15 Now Governor Sisolak has come in and is changing the game - he's passed a bill, created a commission with check and balances - their plan is to reduce health care costs and protect patients, so they are a patient protection commission - 90% of all health care dollars are spent in the last 3 years of life 0:44:15 That means old people are being experimented on and exploited so hospitals, doctors, administrators can make money - the medical device industry, the pharmacological industry and hospitals / doctors have joined forces to bankrupt the country and profiteer off of that 0:45:15 Family members of elderly people are shamed into doing anything to keep their relative alive, not realizing the probability of getting better from next procedure is so small they are essentially torturing them with fear - and patients will consent to any thing to stay alive 0:46:15 Add that to medical error being 3rd leading cause of death - that's about 300k in the US per year, plus another couple hundred thousand that didn't get recorded - half of those errors are pharmacological - because doctors are so siloed none of them are looking at the whole patient 0:47:15 They should focus on the whole person - we're risking old people's lives so the hospital and medical industry can make money - the other half of medical error deaths are from infections 0:48:15 The animals we eat are all fed antibiotics, so we are continuously exposed to a low level of antibiotics and that empowers the bad bacteria in our microbiome - David says this causes 80% of all disease 0:49:15 David says all disease starts in the gut - David says that red and processed meat are the 2 biggest factors to diabetes 0:50:15 The microbiome is through our entire body - mouth, lungs, stomach, organs - that means all kinds of bacterial DNA in our body, in fact, there is more bacterial DNA then human DNA in our bodies - that means we have to work with the bacteria - 'bad' bacteria is only 'bad' when it dominates the microbiome - and it gets bad when its fed meat, bread, dairy and sugar 0:51:15 That diet makes the more 'bad' bacteria who feed off their own bile - they excrete a toxic chemical that causes inflammation, that triggers the genome, that triggers disposition to disease - that's basic epigenomology 0:52:15 If your grandparents are poorly, you become more susceptible to diseases - it skips a generation - poor diet leads to inflammation making a person even more susceptible 0:53:15 We are in a symbiotic relationship with bacteria, and if we do not feed the 'good' bacteria with fruits, nuts, vegetables and legumes then we will never be in balance with good and bad bacteria to reach homeostasis which promotes natural healing - when we're not in homeostasis our body in under attack - probiotics are good bacteria Cannabinoid power 0:54:15 Why don't probiotics work? Because we're not feeding them - the most effective prebiotic foods are raw garlic, cooked onions, and asparagus - these are 3 most effective foods, they contain lots of inulin - green bananas have non-soluble starch, a prebiotic - the most effective prebiotic is bioavailable marijuana 0:55:15 The cannabinoids empower the good bacteria so they produce more bacteria and bring homeostasis twice as fast as any other way - the plant material is considered a prebiotic because its hard to digest, like garlic and onions, and that's what the good bacteria like - warning: at beginning of prebiotic diet you may suffer from extreme gastritis 0:56:15 Probiotics are good bacteria, prebiotics feed good bacteria - so eating a lot of prebiotic food, may have to burp during the night, but only lasts a few months 0:57:15 David's saying that there is a medical error in that medicine is not paying enough attention to the microbiome and diet in relation to disease - surgeons, to this day, think organs in the body are sterile, but there is tons of bacteria on the organs - but in surgery, they are introducing bad bacteria and that's when everything goes to hell - we're 50 years away from this information being disseminated in the educational system, a deeply flawed system 0:58:15 A system so flawed that the FDA was founded by a bunch of petrochemical engineers - and pharmacological research being funded by for-profit companies that feed into the medical education system, and the professors are selling out for money to please the 'overlords', so the whole system is being corrupted from its foundation and it has been since its founding - they believe in ingesting petrochemicals is a medicine - we're devastating the microbiome in our guts and making us more susceptible to disease 0:59:15 Just look back in time, there had been a rise in disease - everything changed in the 90s with the introduction of GMO - and herbicides and pesticides became even more used and they've known since the 60s that they were detrimental - when they introduced GMOs, they began dousing our wheat with... 1:00:15 ...a chemical herbicide from Monsanto - GMO, genetically modified organisms, they'll splice in DNA from bacteria into a plant to make it resistant to the herbicide so they can douse a whole field with herbicide and not kill the (corn, wheat, barley) plant - as a result, all our crops are sprayed with a glyphosate 2 weeks before harvest to create a greater yield of the plant 1:01:15 Then we eat all this bread with the herbicide and it kills all the bacteria in our gut - a cascading effect - David calls this a 'Nazi-esque eugenics program' designed to kill off all the old people while profiteering off their suffering - the most prolific form of evil today is modern medicine - these young surgeons thinking they are god incarnate and when someone dies on their table, they go into total denial as to their responsibility 1:03:15 David's touched on 3 medical errors: his experience with the dental industry; the food we grow and eat and its impact on our microbiome; and the over-treatment of the elderly for profit - David was also taking care of an elderly friend who recently died. David was caretaker for the last 15 years of a friend who was his Department Chair when David was an adjunct professor at UNLV - about 3 years ago she was diagnosed with aortic stenosis...

Be my Guest I am always looking for guests to share their medical error experiences so we help bring awareness and make patients safer.If you are a survivor, a victim’s surviving family member, a health care worker, advocate, researcher or policy maker and you would like to share your experiences, please send me an email with a brief description:  RemediesPodcast@gmail.com    Need a Counsellor? Like me, many of my clients at Remedies Counseling have experienced the often devastating effects of medical error.If you need a counsellor for your experience with medical error, or living with a chronic illness(es), I offer online video counseling appointments. **For my health and life balance, I limit my number of counseling clients.**  Email me to learn more or book an appointment:  RemediesOnlineCounseling@gmail.com Scott Simpson: Counsellor + Patient Advocate + (former) Triathlete I am a counsellor, patient advocate, and - before I became sick and disabled - a passionate triathlete. Work hard. Train hard. Rest hard.I have been living with HIV since 1998. I was the first person living with HIV to compete at the triathlon world championships. Thanks to research and access to medications, HIV is not a problem in my life. I have been living with ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) since 2012, and thanks in part to medical error, it is a big problem in my life. Counseling / Research I first became aware of the ubiquitousness of medical error during a decade of community based research working with the HIV Prevention Lab at Ryerson University, where I co-authored two research papers on a counseling intervention for people living with HIV, here and here.  Patient participants would often report varying degrees of medical neglect, error and harms as part of their counseling sessions. Patient Advocacy I am co-founder of the ME patient advocacy non-profit Millions Missing Canada, and on the Executive Committee of the Interdisciplinary Canadian Collaborative Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Research Network. I am also a patient advisor for Health Quality Ontario’s Patient and Family Advisory Council, and member of Patients for Patient Safety Canada.Medical Error Interviews podcast and vidcast emerged to give voice to victims, witnesses and participants in this hidden epidemic so we can create change toward a safer health care system. My golden retriever Gladys is a constant source of love and joy. I hope to be well enough again one day to race triathlons again. Or even shovel the snow off the sidewalk.
