Certain medications to protect your heart may backfire in very hot weather, increasing the risk of heart attack, suggests a study published August 1 in Nature Cardiovascular Research.

Certain Western medications, to be precise:

Quote
They compared cases to use of medications that typically protect heart health, including anti-platelets like aspirin that reduce heart attack risk, and beta blockers that treat high blood pressure.
...
They found that people taking beta-blockers or anti-platelet medications like aspirin were 63-65% more likely to have a heart attack on hot days, compared to more moderate temperature days. People who took both had a 75% higher risk. In contrast, people who weren't taking the medications did not have a higher risk of heart attack on hot days.

While the study found a link between the medications and higher risk, it doesn't directly show that the drugs themselves are to blame. One explanation may be that people who are taking those medications are already at higher risk of heart problems, according to the researchers.

However, the researchers found that young people, who generally had better heart health, were more at risk of heat-related heart attack than people in their 60s and 70s if they took the medications.

People under 60 years old were also three times as likely to have heat-related heart attacks if they took statins, medications to lower cholesterol.

The researchers hypothesized that the specific medications may make it more difficult for people to regulate their body temperature in warm weather, according to Kai Chen, first author of the study and assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology (Environmental Health) at Yale.

People living in tropical habitats using Western medicine makes about as much sense as people living in tropical habitats wearing Western suits.

Continuing from:

next we have:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/man-told-high-dose-b-203604162.html

Quote
A man was told to take high-dose B vitamins after blood tests showed he was deficient. Then he lost his ability to walk.
...
Taylor said her father didn't have any symptoms of poor health, but his doctor prescribed a 50-milligram vitamin B6 supplement to up his levels. Vitamin B6, like other B vitamins, helps the body convert food into energy by breaking down carbs and protein. Research suggests it can help the body's immune system and certain brain functions.
...
Within months, he started losing the feeling in his legs, and eventually went to the hospital after he could no longer walk, Taylor told ABC Radio.

Also:

Quote
Preventative care experts say vitamin A supplements cause more harm than good, as taking too many can lead to bone pain and hair loss.

This is how stupid the Western model of nutrition ("vitamins" LOL) is.

While we're at it, let's look at some history:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin#History

Quote
In 1881, Russian medical doctor Nikolai I. Lunin [ru] studied the effects of scurvy at the University of Tartu. He fed mice an artificial mixture of all the separate constituents of milk known at that time, namely the proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and salts. The mice that received only the individual constituents died, while the mice fed by milk itself developed normally. He made a conclusion that "a natural food such as milk must therefore contain, besides these known principal ingredients, small quantities of unknown substances essential to life."

No, the mice died because you were experimenting on them, you Western scientist! If you had simply let the mice eat whatever they themselves wanted to eat, all of them would still be alive! And this does not require the mice themselves to have any abstract concept of "vitamins"! Therefore we do not need such a concept either! All we need are our tongues!

Our enemies' latest complaint:

https://gatesofvienna.net/2022/10/whats-a-little-pain-when-youre-saving-the-planet/

Quote
Are people supposed to now do without anesthesia during surgery in order to save the climate?
...
if the invention of anesthesia was once considered a great medical achievement, since people no longer have to endure the pain of surgery while fully conscious, the broadcaster Arte now warns that anesthetic gases may damage the climate.
...
“Did you know that hospitals are real climate killers? Many pollutants enter the environment there unfiltered… This also applies to anesthetic gases, which are used in seven million operating rooms in Germany every year. The gases are potent greenhouse gases and are often discharged directly to the outside via the hospital roof. But many hospitals are now paying more attention to sustainability.”
...
So woe to those who need surgery: they pollute the climate and make tax increases necessary! One would think that the healthcare system would already have been sufficiently rundown, without the climate sect making calculations about the emissions from medical treatments.

In short, our enemies want to keep Western medicine going irrespective of the environmental damage it is causing.

We, in contrast, advocate looking for replacements to Western medicine. In the case of pain suppression for surgery:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2396469/

Quote
Acupuncture anesthesia has some benefits: (i) it is simple and easy without complicated tools, (ii) there are no side effects, (iii) non-painful areas are induced without the involvement of innervations of the areas stimulated by acupuncture, (iv) the anesthetic effects last after acupuncture anesthesia and (v) the wound heals more quickly.

Western anaesthetic equipment:



Non-Western anaesthetic equipment:



This is how inferior Western civilization is. (No prizes for guessing which is more environmentally friendly!)

Quote
There are some drawbacks, however: (i) anesthesia produced by acupuncture has individual variations and (ii) too much time is needed to induce anesthesia.

Doctors are supposed to view patients as individuals! Yes, this requires a level of sensitivity on the part of the doctors that is probably out of reach of most Westerners.

As for time, I would like to see a recalculation that takes into account the time required to manufacture the Western vs the non-Western equipment.

The shift begins!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11311645/Minnesota-medical-students-vow-honor-Indigenous-ways-healing.html

Quote
Woke pledge replaces Hippocratic oath: Minnesota medical students vow to 'honor all Indigenous ways of healing historically marginalized by Western medicine'
...
The students also pledged to fight 'white supremacy, colonialism [and] the gender binary' at the school's white coat ceremony on August 19.
...
They then vowed to 'embody cultural humility' and affirmed 'that patients are the experts of their bodies.'

The last point is similar to what I was saying here:
