I like to sometimes listen to the nuts on the radio just to see what the other side is saying. I have found that an iPhone/iPod and the Stiticher app make a great way to check out things you may not other wise hear on the local stations. Anyway this week I came across a total nutcase of a physician whom i had never heard of before. Its Doctor Meyer Eisenstein. He and his wife have a show on something called The Progressive Radio Network. He is one of these Antivaccine people who unfortunately uses his MD for evil. His show is so full of pseudoscience and non-science comments that its boggles the mind how he ever got into medical school much less through it. In addition to his antic vaccine rant his latest show in the name of Breast Cancer Awarness went on the record to say that birth control pills cause breast cancer.. not true. Theres never been a link. Shortly after denouncing the use of hormones like Birth Control Pills which have been studied extensively over the years, he then goes on to promote the use of HCG for weight loss. HCG is a hormone which has no good scientific evidence to support its safety or efficacy but somehow thats fine with him. If anyone has swallowed something poisonous and needs a little help vomiting to get it up just take a listen to his show.
Its amazing that physicians get sued daily for things they have no control over and yet someone like this who is committing a blatant violation of the hippocratic can continue to do this with no repercussions
