006 Ask Dr. Wise: The Child of Carcinogenesis

Ask Dr. Wise: The Child of Carcinogenesis

Now playing at a theater near you....just in time for Halloween, The Child of Carcinogenesis!

No, sorry to say, this segment of the Ask Dr. Wise Radio Show is not the stuff of fiction.  It's an in depth examination of one of the most widely used and controversial over the counter pharmaceutical products marketed in the United States and around the globe; acetaminophen.

Before you visit that corner drug store to pick up that well known over the counter cold remedy, cough suppressant or something to knock down that pesky fever, you owe it to yourself to listen in as Dr. Wise challenges us all to understand how products advertised to help us, hold the potential for doing us harm, serious harm, perhaps even death.

Some products mix it with alcohol and histamines....a witches brew.

Listen in.

005 Ask Dr. Wise: Blue Jeans, Arsenic and Corn Flakes

Ask Dr. Wise: Blue Jeans, Arsenic and Corn Flakes

Walk down the isle of any major drug store and just take a look at the volume of 'over-the-counter' medications.

What's in these products? Do they work? Are they safe to use, or could they potentially cause serious and irreversible harm? But there's no way they could cause cancer....could they?

During this segment of the Ask Dr. Wise show, Dr. Samuel Wise M.D., extemporaneously takes us on a fascinating journey that begins in India with the ancient process that created the highly prized blue indigo dye, to the dawn of the chemical industry in the mid 1800's, to the formation of the Pure Food and Drug Act.

At the turn of the 20th century, a common accepted treatment for tuberculosis was to collapse one lung and then send the patient to a spa to breathe fresh country air and eat 'healthy' foods. So what were these foods that were considered healthy and fed to these patients? Dr. Wise provides a history lesson of the first 'fast food' inventors whose products were consumed by these patients. A hundred years later these early inventor's products are still with us today. Names we all know, names like Kellogg, Post and Graham.

And if you think that we're narcissistic today, and will try almost anything to make us more attractive, wait to you hear the story of the face cream women used to give them a nice milky complexion in the early 1900's.

Most importantly you'll learn the names of ingredients and compounds currently actively marketed to the public today, names like acetaminophen, understand what they are, how they work, and gain and acquire information that might just save your life.

Or perhaps don't listen in and just go ahead and take that pill. What could go wrong?

We hope you'll listen in, we know you'll be glad you did, and then visit the Ask Dr. Wise website, www.askdrwise.com, to listen to all of the doctor's educational and entertaining shows.

004 Ask Doctor Wise: Health Care System in America, Part Four of a Four Part Radio Interview with Dr. Samuel Wise, M.D.

Ask Doctor Wise: The Current State of the Health Care System in America, Part Four of a Four Part Radio Interview with Samuel Wise, M.D.

Ask Dr. Wise

Are you ready for another dose of  "Catalytic Conversation'?

This is the final segment of a special four part interview with Samuel Wise, M.D., from his Las Vegas office.

In this segment Dr. Wise again challenges us to open our minds and let a new thought drift in.

Toasters are a hot topic in this segment, no pun intended, as the doctor suggests we should choose a physician with at least as much care and research as we pick out a new toaster. But no worries, to find a new physician simply look in your health insurance manual. There they are, 'approved providers', and all you have to do is pick one. Is that really how we should pick a doctor….from a list of names?

If that subject doesn't get your attention, how about the good doctor's thoughts that perhaps going to visit our physician should be more like going to our veterinarian.

Intrigued, interested, then listen in. You’ll be glad you did.

003 Ask Doctor Wise: The Current State of the Health Care System in America, Part Three of a Four Part Radio Interview with Dr. Samuel Wise, M.D.

Ask Doctor Wise: The Current State of the Health Care System in America, Part Three of a Four Part Radio Interview with  Samuel Wise, M.D.

Did the doctor just say what I thought he said...?  Can he really say that...?

The answer is yes, and yes.

If this episode about the current state of our health care system with Dr. Samuel Wise doesn't get your attention, nothing will.  The good doctor starts off discussing, as he puts it, "the united mission of greed" as he explores the world of health insurance, or perhaps more appropriately, sickness insurance.

If hearing terms like, 'monkeys flying out of your butt insurance', are too rich for you, then you may not wish to listen to this hard hitting and educational segment of the Ask Doctor Wise show.  But that would be a real shame as you would also miss the doctors thoughts about creating a new virus.....the 'Honesty Virus.'

This is a knowledge-rich 25 minutes that all of us should have an opportunity to experience.

Watch out for those monkeys...!!!!!!
