What Doctors Don't Tell You

Well, we know that there are many things that doctors don't tell us, but happily you can discover many of them at the informative, UK-based, website, What Doctors Don’t Tell You (WDDTY). Since 1989, journalist Lynne McTaggart, author of numerous books including The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe, has coordinated the WDDTY website, a virtual warren of articles and data about health and alternative options. Recognized as a responsible, credible source of information and resources, WDDTY is helpful to all practitioners and laypeople interested in the real scoop behind any number of health and science issues.

Here are two examples of unrelated but interesting articles. The first demonstrates yet another reason to be cautious about purchasing items made in China, whether containing high lead, melamine, or other contaminants. In Europe, sofas made in China were found to contain sachets of dimethyl fumarate, a fungicide used to inhibit mold. Unsuspecting sofa-sitters came down with eczema-like allergic reactions and one man suffered heart failure.

The second is about how present day researchers in Europe and the United States are re-examining some of the theories of Otto Warburg, a biochemist who in 1924 (!) made interesting discoveries about the cause of cancer having to do with fermentation of sugar in cells and a lack of oxygen. Dr. Otto Warburg (1883-1970) won the 1931 Nobel Prize in Medicine. He found that cancer cells cannot survive with high levels of oxygen and that cancer occurs when there is a lack of oxygen at the cellular level.
• Oxygen inhibits the growth of cancer.
• Healing potential is increased when oxygen is available to cells & tissues
• Oxygen sensitizes the body to medications so the body needs less
• Oxygen produces energy for healthy cell activity

There is so much information on the WDDTY website, it can seem overwhelming, but there is much to learn and it is worth the effort to wade through it.
