Why you don’t have to fear West Nile and Hanta viruses by Robert Rowen MD

We’re beginning to hear about a lot more deaths from the West Nile virus. Health officials are convinced that this will be the worst year for West Nile virus deaths and severe illnesses since 1999 (the year it first appeared in the U.S.).

Despite the press, your risk of a catastrophe is very small. Only about 1-in-5 infected people gets sick. Some recover quickly. But you have a 1 in 150 risk of developing severe symptoms. These include neck stiffness, disorientation, coma, and paralysis, even death. There will be many more infections, as this disease makes its rounds. But still, your risk will remain small.

West Nile isn’t the only disease making the news. The media now tells us that the Hanta virus is in Yosemite. Thankfully, my trek in Yosemite was last year before the current outbreak. The Hanta virus is far more deadly.

There is good news though. The government (correctly this time) tells us that you can kill the Hanta virus with ultraviolet light. That means that any virus particles exposed to our sun are destroyed, so casual exposure outdoors is unlikely. The more likely means of transmission is exposure to rodent droppings inside a tent, like what happened in Yosemite.

But again, I’m not at all concerned about Hanta either. With government knowledge of UV destroying Hanta, it is deplorable that our corrupt health system (including the Pharma controlled government) doesn’t turn to a therapy tried and true decades ago – namely ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy. This technique cured vicious viruses like polio and viral pneumonia in hours to days in the 1940s. I suspect the same would happen with West Nile. I’m working a new article for my newsletter. It will appear this Spring. But know this, UBI can cure West Nile and Hanta, along with most other viral and bacterial infections.

So make sure you find the closest oxidation physician to where you live. You can find a list at www.oxygenhealingtherapies.com.

Is a high-fat diet the best way to achieve great health? by Robert Rowen MD

There are still people who believe a high-fat diet is the model for great health. And I still disagree. Now, science is catching up. A new study found how a high-fat diet negatively affects your health.

The researchers conducted this study on macaque monkeys. They split the animals into 32 pregnant females fed a 32% high-fat diet and 26 pregnant females fed a “balanced” 14% diet. Of the first group, eight resulted in stillbirths. Of the 26 fed the lower fat diet, only one stillbirth occurred.

Here’s what the researchers found. The high-fat diet monkeys had highly decreased blood flow through the uterus. The amount ranged from 38% to 56%. They also had greater placental inflammation, which also can cause birth problems. The effect held true both for obese maternal monkeys and slender monkeys fed the high-fat diet. So it didn’t matter whether the monkeys were fat at the outset or not. Simply eating the higher fat diet caused the changes.

The lead researcher warns that we are now seeing fatty livers in children. This is a condition previously seen only in alcoholics. This should serve as a huge warning to everyone. I assure you that monkeys don’t change diets when they’re pregnant. They’ll just eat more.

So, a high-fat diet is simply unhealthy. It doesn’t matter if you’re having babies or just wanting to live a long, healthful life. Excess fat is not good for you. There are good reasons for this. Fat is devoid of nutrients except perhaps some fat-soluble vitamins, which you’ll get plenty of in a low-fat diet, and essential fatty acids, which are also abundant in a high quality low-fat diet.

I continue to urge my patients and readers to move toward the lower-fat diet espoused by Doug Graham in his book The 80-10-10 Diet. The Living Foods Diet I teach arises from Dr. Graham’s philosophy. You’ll be hard pressed to exceed 10-15% fat calories if 75-80% of what you eat is fresh living veggies and fruit. This is the cheapest and simplest way to accomplish all the goals every cardiologist, pushing every petrochemical drug, could ever dream to achieve.
