Everyone gets over a broken heart, sooner or later, they say. Well, it’s also literally true. Heart cells, it has been discovered, can replicate themselves and re-grow. The old model of a myocardial infarction (the classic “heart attack”) is just bunk.
Like all the many scientific myths of medicine and so-called science, this old story has bitten the dust. All doctors “knew” that when the heart was damaged, that was it: caput! You’d never regrow good, vigorous heart muscle.
It’s just not true. It’s just not science!
Dr Mauro Giacca of the International Centre For Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in Trieste, Italy has led a team showing that, with the right stimulus, heart cells divide and multiply. That’s good news.
It’s also the measure of medical stupidity. As doctors and scientists base their practice on the fact that Nature is useless, she can’t fix things, when anything goes wrong, it needs clever doctors with clever drugs to patch up they patient, to keep them alive for a few years. Silly Bitch Nature didn’t know what to do; but we doctors did!
Well, those of you have been on my list for many years will know I always argue that Nature can fix anything. And she does! Mostly, I think, with modern medicine, it’s a question of doctors getting in the way and blocking natural healing, with their stupid, inept strategies, based on phoney science.
Maybe that’s why, whenever doctors go on strike, the death rate plummets! Did you know that?
In 1976 in Bogota, Columbia, there was a fifty-two-day period in which doctors disappeared altogether except for emergency care. The “National Catholic Reporter” described “a string of unusual side effects” from the strike. The death rate went down 35%.
There was an 18% drop in the death rate in 1976 when doctors went on a strike in Los Angeles County. After the strike, the death rate returned to pre-strike levels.
In 1973 it happened in Israel. The death rate dropped by 50% during the month doctors were on strike.

Maybe doctors are among the worst pathogens (well, not me, of course!)
