What if everything you've been told to give up were actually the very things keeping you alive
Agora Inc ^ | 1/25/04 | William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.

Posted on 01/26/2004 3:49:49 PM PST by Tumbleweed_Connection

My Dear Misled Friend:

Red Meat. Coffee. Fatty foods. Eggs. Butter and cream. Tobacco. Even sunshine. All the things that make life worth living are things mainstream medicine wants you to give up in the name of good health.

What do they want us to substitute for these delicious, satisfying "vices?" Bean sprouts, tofu this and soy that, gallons of water, and a bunch of joint-destroying, heart-stressing lunacy they call "exercise."

But is this really the right course? Is there really such an overwhelming body of evidence that says we need to be a society of water-intoxicated vegetarian marathoners to be healthy?

NO. There isn't. Mainstream medicine's "sky is falling" philosophy is just so much JUNK MEDICINE. Need Proof? Consider this...

That quick coffee-and-cigarette breakfast isn't the killer those doom-and-gloomers say it is. Far from it, in fact...

That cup of coffee you crave after you shut off the alarm clock is actually one of nature's healthiest miracles. In fact, that first morning mug may pack more health-boosting antioxidants than 3 fresh oranges!

And if you're like me, you enjoy a nice, hot "cuppa joe" throughout the day. So don't fret - indulge, because:

2-3 CUPS A DAY can slash your risk of gallstones by 45%! 4 CUPS can dramatically cut your risk of colon cancer - the second deadliest variety of the disease in America... And if you do smoke cigarettes (something I'd warn anyone against), keep that coffee pot plugged in - because some research shows that drinking coffee helps prevent smokers from developing bladder cancer.

Of course, as a doctor, I could never condone cigarette smoking. With all the chemicals, additives, and addictive drugs they pack into them, they're to be avoided like the plague...

But notice I didn't say that smoking tobacco is harmful. Quite the contrary, in fact. The benefits of moderate smoking of pure, unadulterated tobacco (like what's in a fine cigar) have been known for centuries. Good luck finding this out from our friends in the medical mainstream, however.

As far off as it may sound, up to four cigars a day can help anyone:

Maintain optimum weight and Body Mass Index Stay as mentally sharp and alert as possible Avoid (and combat) addictions to truly harmful substances Lessen the effects of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's - even schizophrenia The campaign against tobacco is just one more example of how the mainstream's junk medicine pervades our lives - and forces us into making "healthy" choices that may actually be killing us . Keep reading...

So who am I to be swinging this ax?

I'm William Campbell Douglass, M.D.

I've been called 'the conscience of modern medicine,' and the National Health Federation voted me 'Doctor of the Year.'

I've also been labeled a 'maverick,' and several less flattering names too, but hey, that's part of the territory. And friend, my territory is everywhere...

I've flown with US Navy crews as a Flight Surgeon...

Saved lives as a long-time emergency physician...

Battled malaria in bullet-torn regions of Central America...

Fought deadly epidemics at my own health clinic in Africa...

Worked alongside doctors at Russia's renowned Pasteur Institute...

I've even been called before Congress (they never asked me back)... And if there's one undeniable medical fact I've learned in 40 years of treating patients all over the world, it's that...

THERE IS NO SUCH THING as an undeniable medical fact!

As you'll see on the following pages, medicine just doesn't work that way. You're not a number, you're a human being. The most unpredictable thing in creation...

And your own road to real health can be easier, cheaper and far more pleasant than any health-nag would ever predict.

Just let me send you 5 FREE BONUS GIFTS and you'll soon see and feel what I mean. You'll learn how to make your body immune to CANCER, HEART ATTACKS, JOINT PAIN, FLU, COLDS and DEADLY DISEASE in ways that would make our misinformed 'health authorities' whine for a week...

By eating REAL FOOD, taking a few (cheap!) supplements that make you STRONGER, and doing some shockingly PLEASURABLE things that 'everyone knows' can't be healthy!

First we'll get the diet Nazis out of your life. I mean...

Everyone's hollering 'EAT YOUR VEGETABLES'

But please don't overdo it. Because the actual figures reveal:

VEGETARIANS DIE YOUNGER. Oh, they tell you they're healthier, but census data shows the opposite. Plus...

VEGETARIAN KIDS ARE SICKLIER. The Archives of Pediatric Adolescent Medicine reports that children reared on these diets are at higher risk for 'impaired psychomotor development.

VEGETARIAN DIETS WON'T EVEN MAKE YOU MORE REGULAR. Even teenage vegetarians are 8 times more likely to use laxatives!

AND THEY could SAP YOUR SEX LIFE AND YOUR STRENGTH. This is not a myth. In fact, researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School have linked meatless, low-protein diets to slumping sex function and muscle loss and bone damage. Then, when they pester you to 'DRINK 8 GLASSES OF WATER A DAY'...

Turn back on your tormentors with one simple question. WHY?

Know what? NOBODY KNOWS WHY. In the words of a famous nutritionist at Penn State University, 'I can't tell you...and I've written a book on water.'

Maybe your kidneys need it? No, according to a kidney expert at the National Institutes of Health, the average healthy adult gets all the water he or she needs from solid food alone.

Well then, perhaps it's to replace the water you lose from drinking coffee? Wrong again! The Journal of the American College of Nutrition confirms that caffeine doesn't dehydrate healthy people.

From now on, you have doctor's orders to drink water only when you feel like it. And if you'll take just one precaution with your water supply, you can...

SLASH YOUR RISK OF ALZHEIMER'S OVERNIGHT

It's really easy. Starting tomorrow, drink no tap water. Not because of industrial pollution, but because of chemicals that 'health authorities' are adding to your water. For example...

People who warned against FLUORIDATION used to be ridiculed, but guess what? In Scandinavia, in fact all of Europe, and nearly every other medically advanced nation, they have now banned the practice.

Know why? Because fluoride makes your body absorb extra aluminum . And where does the aluminum go? Your brain. And what metal shows up alarmingly in the brains of Alzheimer's victims? You guessed it. (Hmm... Maybe our health authorities have been drinking too much water?)

In your FREE BONUS REPORTS, I'll explain the cheapest and easiest way to filter out all this toxic JUNK MEDICINE, along with several even easier ways to cut your Alzheimer's risk. Then you'll learn how to slash your cancer risk by IGNORING some of today's most idiotic advice. Including loads of...

INCREDIBLY FRIGHTENING CANCER MYTHS that you can stop worrying about right now

If you don't want cancer, don't believe anyone who tells you:

'SUNSHINE CAUSES MELANOMA.' Just the opposite. In studies all over the world, as sun exposure increases, malignant skin cancer risk goes down. In the sunniest parts of Australia, lifeguards have lower skin cancer rates than office workers.

'ELECTRIC BLANKETS GIVE YOU CANCER.' Know how this myth got canonized? Instead of commissioning new research, a public health authority put the question to a VOTE. (NEWS FLASH: you can't change the laws of nature by voting.) Yet even these geniuses freely admit that more than 500 existing studies show ZERO compelling evidence of electric fields causing cancer. Rest easy and while you're at it, enjoy your heating pad again.

'HIGH FAT DIETS CAUSE BREAST CANCER.' Fat phobia may be the height of fashion, but it's JUNK MEDICINE. Researchers studied 88,795 women over the course of 14 years, and what did they find? Not one sign that high-fat diets promote breast cancer. Not one hint that low-fat diets protect you. And in fact... Women who consumed the least fat got breast cancer MORE OFTEN

Yet of all the cancer myths current today, none has killed more innocent people than one particular, truly murderous hoax:

'DDT CAUSES CANCER.' Says WHO? Check the record. Back in the 1970s, the Environmental Protection Agency examiner summed up 9,000 pages of research by flatly declaring, 'DDT is not a carcinogenic hazard to man.' He also emphasized that it doesn't harm fish, birds or other wildlife . Despite this open-and-shut case, his boss, EPA head William Ruckleshaus went ahead and banned DDT. Aides later said he never read even one page of the studies. He had helped to hatch the DDT scare and couldn't bring himself to admit he was wrong. The worldwide witch-hunt against DDT hasn't saved one peregrine falcon. But it has unquestionably murdered tens of millions of human children in tropical nations, who continue to die from malaria, Dengue fever, yellow fever and other mosquito-borne plagues.

I know this all too well from treating patients at my own clinic in Africa. It steams me to think that the anti-DDT activists who commit this genocide are congratulating themselves for being great humanitarians. And the crowning irony is that...

DDT may even prevent breast cancer

One of America's greatest medical researchers, Dr. William Hazeltine, has found that small amounts of DDT actually lower the risk of leukemia and breast cancer in lab animals. (The animals appeared so much healthier, lab technicians started referring to this miracle compound as 'vitamin DDT.')

Are you starting to see how many deadly health FALSEHOODS have been promoted to FACTS, just by being endlessly repeated? And there's another side to this counterfeit coin. Just as many real health breakthroughs that could save your life tomorrow are being ignored. Don't miss the details in your FREE BONUS REPORTS about...

THE REAL CANCER BREAKTHROUGHS That mass media has BLACKED OUT

For example, what if you had a truly foolproof test for detecting hidden cancers? One that finds the cancer early enough to enable a complete cure? Everyone wants there to be a test like this, but...

IT SURE ISN'T MAMMOGRAPHY. One of today's most acclaimed cancer experts, Dr. Michael Baum of University College Hospital, London, recently announced that 'I think there is a deception going on.' Very simply, the latest statistics show that mammograms don't save lives. And half of all women diagnosed with 'early breast cancer' may be having mastectomies for nothing.

IT ISN'T THE PSA TEST for prostate cancer, EITHER. Ask your doctor about the alarming study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal The Lancet. Believe it or not, it shows that men who take this test are more likely to die of prostate cancer than men who don't.

The actual rate of missed cancers hasn't changed much in 75 years...But, with the advent of the test I am going to tell you about, this will change for the better. So what on earth can you do? Just send for your FREE BONUS REPORTS and let me give you the exciting new details about:

How to detect and defeat NEARLY ANY FORM OF CANCER

It's new, it's called the AMAS test, and nothing else even comes close to it. If your doctor runs it twice, your rate of false positives and false negatives drops to under 1%.

How important is this accuracy? Life or death. For example, if you find prostate cancer early enough, you've got a 99% chance of a cure.

And the test couldn't be easier. The doctor takes a blood sample and screens it for a substance called Anti-Malignan Antibody (AMAS). No squeezing the breasts. No poking around you-know-where.

The antibody is manufactured by your own immune system, in response to any common kind of cancer cell.

Thus, if you simply test for AMAS, you can reliably surmise when cancer is lurking somewhere in your body. And get treatment before it spreads.

Breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, name it...your chances for beating any of these cancers has suddenly skyrocketed!

Exciting? You bet. If there's any cancer in your family, AMAS should absolutely be part of your own regular checkup.

And this is not pie in the sky. It's been tested in studies of more than 8,000 patients and awarded U.S. Patent Number 5866690. Your doctor could and should be using it right now...

But he probably hasn't heard of it. So tell him! Full details in your FREE BONUS GIFTS, where I'll also brief you on:

TODAY'S DEADLIEST CANCER-PREVENTION MYTH. You're probably following it at meal-time and hating every minute of it...

THE BEST CANCER PREVENTIVE YOU NEVER HEARD OF, a beverage that cuts off the blood supply to start-up cancer cells...

AND THE REAL 'MAGIC BULLET,' a laser-light therapy that can make chemotherapy obsolete, destroying cancer cells without harming healthy ones.

Then you'll learn about today's most popular form of SUICIDE...

Want to kill yourself trying to AVOID HEART DISEASE?

Then just obey the Food Police and eat a VERY LOW-FAT DIET.

I've been cautioning my readers about this for years and now I'm even hearing agreement from the Chairman of the Nutrition Committee of the American Heart Association. Even he now admits that a very low-fat diet can be harmful to many people! So unless you've actually been tested and found to have a very specific condition called 'pattern B LDL,' be careful to get enough animal fat in your diet.

At this point patients often ask me,'But how can I keep my cholesterol down?' Well, maybe you should be more concerned about getting it higher. Because...

LOW CHOLESTEROL can be much deadlier than high cholesterol

Here too, even the American Heart Association is now admitting...

LOW CHOLESTEROL CAN TRIGGER THE DEADLIEST KIND OF STROKE. It's called a 'massive stroke,' and it happens when blood vessels in your brain are so weak, they burst open.

EVEN MODERATELY LOW CHOLESTEROL LEVELS can raise your risk of these strokes. By this, I mean under 200. Yet many doctors routinely prescribe cholesterol-lowering drugs if it's over 200!

No wonder the British Medical Journal recently announced:

'CHOLESTEROL SCREENING IS NOT WORTHWHILE!'

When they actually looked at the figures, guess what? Folks with lower cholesterol were just about as likely to develop heart disease as those with higher levels. It simply doesn't matter.

So what's the real cause of heart disease? Well, for one thing:

Too little RED MEAT in your diet

See how pleasant real health can be? Your friends might say 'YOU'RE NUTS,' but the actual biochemistry behind my EAT LIKE A HUMAN diet is now endorsed by just about every serious heart researcher.

You see, of all the different substances they can measure in your blood, the deadliest risk factor for heart disease is not cholesterol, but a chemical called HOMOCYSTEINE. Because...

Cholesterol doesn't do diddly unless it 'catches' on a ridge or a pit in your artery walls. And the secret cause of these 'cholesterol traps' is homocysteine. Too much homocysteine and your arteries corrode like a rusty pipe.

But it's so easy to cut down your homocysteine levels! Three vitamins do the trick quickly, including vitamins B6 and B12. And by far the richest source of these vitamins is...

You got it. Red meat . In your FREE BONUS GIFTS, you'll receive complete details of my EAT LIKE A HUMAN program, which not only heals your arteries, but peels off excess pounds in the bargain.

Then you'll learn all about:

HOW TO EXPAND NARROW ARTERIES almost instantly, after any meal, with a nutrient pill that goes to work in seconds...

HOW TO CLEAN OUT DISEASED ARTERIES permanently and make them flow free again, without surgery, diet or any drugs at all... ...

COMMON INFECTIONS that cause many heart attacks, and the little-known treatment that kills these dangerous germs...

And the next time you hear anyone say 'HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY PREVENTS HEART DISEASE,' be a good friend and set them straight:

HRT can DOUBLE a woman's risk of heart disease

In a recent study of 2,000 women who had suffered heart attacks, taking estrogen doubled their risk of further problems.

Understand, I am not saying that Hormone Replacement Therapy is bad for your heart. It's just that most menopausal women are receiving the wrong mix of hormones. Doctors are flooding their systems with too much estrogen and progesterone, usually dangerous synthetics, when in fact...

The heart-healthy hormone women need is TESTOSTERONE

Forget what everyone told you about 'male' and 'female' hormones. As any first-year medical student should know, both women and men produce all the very same types of sex hormones.

It's just the proportion that's different . Healthy women produce more estrogen and progesterone...men make more testosterone...but all of us need some of each to stay healthy.

Testosterone, not estrogen , is the hormone that keeps your heart strong. If you're a woman over 50, there's a good chance your levels are too low (just as in men over 50).

In your FREE BONUS GIFTS I'll give you full details about the NATURAL HORMONE THERAPY that combines all the hormones a woman needs. And how to find a doctor with expertise in this neglected field.

Do look into it. Not only is it better for your heart, but it may also reverse osteoporosis.

It's even been shown in some to cut breast cancer risk by 90%.

Now what about men? Well, don't let anyone tell you that 'MEN HAVE TOO MUCH TESTOSTERONE.' Because...

What doctors don't tell you about testosterone isn't just stealing your potency. IT'S KILLING MILLIONS OF MEN EVERY YEAR.

Studies show that many American men over 40 actually suffer a dangerous testosterone deficiency. Yet doctors typically don't even test for it, because they too are victims of JUNK MEDICINE:

EVERYONE THINKS that testosterone causes heart disease. Yet the research shows it's a fabulous treatment and may even prevent strokes.

EVERYONE FEARS that testosterone promotes prostate disease. Yet studies show that both benign swelling and cancer typically strike older men, with declining testosterone levels.

EVERYONE ASSUMES that the state-of-the-science treatment for impotence is Viagra. While it can help, all-natural testosterone can make you feel and perform like a 21-year-old again. And, a combination of the two...wow! In your FREE BONUS GIFTS, I'll give you my 60-SECOND SELF TEST for checking your own testosterone levels. And I'll show you several exciting new ways to boost or DOUBLE your own natural testosterone levels quite safely, just by stimulating your body to make more.

Plus I'll provide the surprising new facts about...

THE REAL MIRACLE FOR ARTHRITIS PAIN

I am not talking about glucosamine or chondroitin. They do work, but their pain-relief power is limited.

The REAL miracle for joint pain and swelling has been sitting right under our noses for decades. I'm certain you've heard of it...

Good old reliable CORTISONE!

Stay with me here. I realize that everyone tells you 'CORTISONE CAN DESTROY YOUR HEALTH,' and so it can...

But so can any other substance, including water. And when cortisone's powers were first discovered, doctors got carried away. They gave huge doses that were bound to be destructive.

Now, one courageous doctor has proved that cortisone can be safe and a Godsend to sufferers . His name is Dr. William Jeffries. and I'll share his breakthroughs in your FREE BONUS GIFTS. You'll learn how:

YOUR BODY PRODUCES ITS OWN NATURAL FORM OF CORTISONE, to help it fight stress, injuries and fatigue...

BUT MANY JOINT PAIN SUFFERERS ARE SECRETLY DEFICIENT in this natural form, called hydrocortisone. Simply correct this with very small doses and the results can transform your life.

Better still, this same natural therapy can clear up many other anti-immune problems, like hay fever, asthma and more besides. So do let me show you how to get access to this REAL health breakthrough. (Warning: I am not talking about Prednisone, which is dangerous.)

It's all in your FREE BONUS GIFTS, where you'll also learn...

How to protect your loved ones from the world's #1 killer

Everyone thinks that today's biggest threats to your life are heart disease and cancer, but surprise...

Germs are back on top again, as a very worried AMA revealed at a conference not long ago.

People who check into hospitals for treatment of other conditions are dying of bacterial pneumonia that antibiotics can't touch. Tuber-culosis has returned to America in drug-resistant strains...

New strains of colds are lasting for months and doctors are publicly worrying that the killer flu which wiped out 20 million people back in 1919 could be reborn any autumn now...

But cheer up, because despite what everyone tells you...

Antibiotics are not our most powerful weapon against infectious disease

They're just the most profitable for drug companies. Right now, however, we already possess an alternative that can blast all the diseases mentioned above and many more to kingdom come.

It's safe, backed by decades of solid research, and boy is it ever cheap.

You can buy it at drugstores everywhere for 65¢ a bottle. So what is this amazing miracle-in-a-bottle?

HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

Go ahead and laugh if you like, but what follows is no joke:

DID YOU KNOW that your own white blood cells produce hydrogen peroxide? Yes they do. Lots of it.

KNOW WHY? Because that's how they kill invading germs. It's your body's first and best defense against any infection. Kills bacteria, viruses, yeast, parasites - all the bad guys.

DON'T BELIEVE ME? Look it up. (Try the Encyclopedia Britannica website. Check the info on 'granulocytes.' See? I told you so.)

BUT HOW? The hydrogen peroxide molecule (H202) is basically water (H20) with an extra oxygen atom attached. When that oxygen gets released against germs, it 'oxidizes' them. Poof, they're goners.

And here's some more of what you'll learn in your FREE BONUS GIFTS:

IT WAS BACK IN 1920 that two English doctors in India tried using hydrogen peroxide to stop a pneumonia epidemic. It worked . Patients on the edge of death bounced back to life.

YEARS LATER, THE THERAPY WAS PERFECTED by Charles H. Farr, M.D., P.H.D. He was recently nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

IN THE 1960s, DOCTORS AT BAYLOR UNIVERSITY proved its safety and effectiveness against many diseases, including such improbable candidates as cancer and hardening of the arteries.

I'VE USED IT IN MY OWN PRACTICE to treat patients suffering from all manner of maladies from influenza and colds to cases of emphysema. It works fast. It works safely. It works, period.

And this shockingly cheap therapy was a real health miracles for my patients in Africa, where the ungodly high cost of drugs condemns millions to death every year.

So how do drug companies get away with selling expensive antibiotics, when we've got this stuff that's nearly free? You'd call me paranoid if I told you. But I'll tell you anyway in your FREE BONUS GIFTS, plus how to find a doctor skilled in this secret miracle.

NOTE: DON'T EVEN THINK OF DRINKING IT . That's not how hydrogen peroxide therapy works and it's not safe. I'll explain how it's done in your FREE BONUS REPORTS, along with some very nifty 'minor' applications. It can be used to clear up sinus infections, erase benign moles and even clear up periodontitis without surgery. No kidding. You'll see.

Getting intrigued? I'm just warming up...

I'd love to brief you on many more JUNK MEDICINE MYTHS to avoid and real health miracles that truly deliver the goods, but I'm out of space. So why not scratch that itch in the back of your mind, order now for your FREE BONUS GIFTS and find out all about:

THE FIBER FRAUD. Doctors were getting positively hysterical about your colon. Fiber this, fiber that. Now it appears that some kinds of fiber can trigger precancerous growths...

HOW TO THROW OFF FATIGUE by throwing out your vitamin C pills and taking the world's most un-hyped vitamin instead.

VITAMIN 'O' AND OTHER JOKES that masquerade as alternative medicine. They say you eat this stuff and it floods your body with oxygen. EAT oxygen? You may as well try to breathe food...

Way to go, Dr. Bill.

I was reading real hard till I got to the point where you starting hyping your OWN cures.

Jezzum..Lord, Amighty...every time ya turn around there's some medico trashing another one and humping his own cure.

Here's mine.....We made a plan before we entered this life cycle as to how long it was going to be and what we needed to learn.

All things in moderation....and ya won't go wrong.

The great hedonists - liberals - now maintain that, in order to live the "correct" way, one must abandon specific vices that destory one's health. Other vices, such as those involving sexuality, however, are far more deadly. These are a matter of indifference to liberals.P>

It's a more degenerate and idiotic version of the Hitler Youth. Only liberals could think it makes sense.

Yes, Flyer, you did help me to understand the deep and abiding attachment which I have for my _underscores_

It's a debt I can never repay.

Ah yes. A good cigar and a shot of Jack Daniels. Just what the Doctor ordered.

Great post!
I've come to the conclusion that all of this "wellness" nonsense is nothing but a smoke screen.

We've poured money by the shipload into medical research. What have we gotten for our investment?

Can they cure cancer? No, but they tell us that they are on the "verge" of a cure. They've been feeding us that line of BS for decades. The same holds true for diabetes and the common cold.

Enjoy life and to hell with the health nuts. They're running a blame the victim con game and living high on the grant money that we give them.

They claim that the aged live longer now. Hogwash!!! They are talking about drooling zombies strapped to beds in care homes. I don't call that living!

Well, for 57 years I've been eating what my mother taught me to eat, and avoiding the things she taught me not to. With her wisdom, God's grace and my own common sense, I seem to be doing OK. Atkins and all the other fads, along with the "latest medical discoveries" don't interest me in the least.

I decided long ago that if you took the combined "wisdom" of all the books that have even been written about health and nutrition, the sum total of all the contradictions would mean that you would never be able to eat anything. At all.

So I eat what I want.

A fun read, mainly because (if you can read beyond the considerable hype) a lot of what he says is right--one year they say eggs are deadly, the next they're saying they're not; one week carbs are good, the next they're not--and so it goes.

Anyone who agonizes about these "dangers" with what they're eating should just think back to how people ate before the food police came along--as my Gramma used to say, eat a balanced meal, meaning some meat, some veggies, some starch (potatoes or bread), and some fruit for dessert.

But she thought it was perhaps most important to eat in good cheer. She always said harsh words and bad moods at dinner time created sour stomachs. I think she was right--which leads me to wonder what people do to their stomachs if they're worrying about every bite they're taking...?? Could this be why most "food police" look so dour?

IT ISN'T THE PSA TEST for prostate cancer, EITHER.
Very strange article -- beware of people who TYPE IN ALL CAPS.

However, this one did catch my eye. My father's doctor told him that he would be dead in a year from prostate cancer because his PSA was so high. This was about 12 years ago. Every time dad goes in, the doctor tells him he's going to die if he doesn't have his prostate removed. Some men just naturally have high PSA levels.

This started reading like SPAM mail I keep getting right at this point.

IT ISN'T THE PSA TEST for prostate cancer, EITHER. Ask your doctor about the alarming study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal The Lancet. Believe it or not, it shows that men who take this test are more likely to die of prostate cancer than men who don't.

Damn, I'm convinced! I mean, it couldn't be anything obvious, like, those having the PSA test have symptoms or other risk factors making them more likely to actually have cancer than those who never get the test done.

The test is a killer!
