5 Secrets Doctors Will Never Tell You, Beware Of The 5th One

In this contemporary world, people simetimes tend to put their faith wholeheartedly in doctors.

People do that because of the fact that they are the health experts.

Premised on that, we often take their advice without question.

Interestingly, what we do not take into account is that some of these doctors either do not have a clue or actively withhold information that could be putting your life in jeopardy.

If you think that the above sounds sensationalist, then take a look at these facts; facts that doctors know but won’t tell you.

A. Cancer Is Not Always Cancer

The worst possible outcome of a trip to the doctor is a diagnosis of the Big C. We are soo much afraid of it that even the word is taboo in some places, and the medical community lives by one maxim: early diagnosis.

The earlier you discover that you have cancer, the more easily you can treat it.

But such enthusiasm can easily lead to false positives, and treating something that is not there can be highly dangerous.

We are not just making that up. Mammograms are famous for misdiagnosing breast cancer, since every little anomaly in the breast can look like a tumor. The most common misdiagnosis is with DCIS, or Ductal Carcinoma In Situ. Despite the “carcinoma” in there, DCIS isn’t really cancerous ; only rarely does it turn into cancer, and practically everyone with DCIS survives, no matter what kind of treatment they get.

But when doctors quote cancer statistics, they usually lump in DCIS, which now accounts for about 30 percent of breast cancer “cases” in the US. And when faced with that option, most people choose to undergo “needless and sometimes disfiguring and harmful treatments” to get rid of something that, statistically, will do less harm than the treatments themselves.

B. High Blood Pressure Drugs Destroy Your Sexual Health

Your doctor will never get you informed on this.

Majority of the persons suffering from high blood pressure and uses the drugs prescribed by the doctor are killing their sexual health.

This secret is what doctors will never tell you.

A certain man shared a story with us on how he drastically declined in his sexual performance badly. When he told us the story, we asked if he uses drugs for HBP and he replied, yes, ok we gave an advice to stop using the drugs and immediately he saw changed.

He went away to sue the doctor for not telling him thay the drugs could cause this to him and how it has affected his marriage.

C. Prescription Drugs Can Cause Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is triggered when your body either does not make enough insulin or cannot effectively utilise all the insulin it makes.

The end result is a buildup of glucose, or sugar, in the bloodstream, which begins damaging nerves and blood vessels over time.

Close to about 2.3 million Americans have type 2 diabetes, and the numbers keep rising every year.

It turns out that some of the most commonly prescribed drugs, like antidepressants, might be causing it.

In the year 2011, there were 46.7 million prescriptions given out to treat depression in the United Kingdom alone.

When researchers at the University of Southampton looked at the numbers, they discovered that people who took two of the most common types of antidepressants, SSRIs and tricyclic antidepressants, were twice as likely to catch diabetes.

And sure, those findings were issuee in the year 2013, but we have known about the link since 2008 and yet millions more are prescribed on a monthly basis.

And it keeps geting worse.

Some of the most common drugs used to treat ADHD in children can even triple the risk of type 2 diabetes.

More often than not, that is a lifelong condition, and kids do not even get the choice to refuse.

D. Some Medications Increase Cancer Risk

Now that we have assuaged some of your worries about cancer, let us move ahead and kick everything back up again.

Blood pressure medications can almost triple your risk of aggressive breast cancer.

In the United States alone, about 58.6 million people take medication for high blood pressure, so you would think the cancer link would be more well-known.

The study that discovered this relationship looked at 1,763 women with breast cancer. Those who used a particular type of blood pressure medicine—calcium channel blockers—were 2.5 times more likely to develop cancer.

The risk is very great among elderly women over the age of 55, and it likely happens because calcium channel blockers prevent cells from dying.

If cells cannot complete their normal life cycle, they go rogue and become highly cancerous.

E. Asprin Can Cause Internal Bleeding

One of the most popular pieces of advice from doctors is that you should take a low dose of aspirin on daily basis.

The idea behind the foregoing is that it serves as a maintenance treatment to prevent blood clots, which can cause heart attacks and strokes.

But what they will not tell you is the small fact that doing so can trigger massive internal bleeding.

Researchers discovered that, out of 10,000 people, a daily dose of aspirin prevented 46 people from dying over the course of 10 years.

But they also discovered in the research that 49 people out of the same 10,000 experienced major internal bleeding, and another 117 started bleeding in their gastrointestinal tract.

A prison inmate whose life was saved with my inhaler now in Germany – Tsatsu Tsikata

Legal practitioner Tsatsu Tsikata has in giving an account of the severe asthmatic attack he suffered in jail at the Nsawam Prison, revealed how an act of kindness nearly cost him his life.

Tsatsu was an inmate of the Nsawam Prison after being found guilty of causing financial loss to the state by an Accra High Court presided over by Justice Henrietta Abban.

The former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Commission was jailed on June 18, 2008, for his role in a loan facility the GNPC guaranteed for Valley Farms, a private cocoa-growing company.

Tsatsu said on Pan African TV that a day before he experienced his attack, a prisoner came to him to plead for help for another inmate who was under attack.

Tsatsu says he gave the inmate his inhaler despite being aware of the dangers.

“The day that I ended up being taken out of prison with [an] asthmatic attack. The day before that, one of the prisoners came to me and said that a prisoner has a bad asthma attack and if there was something I could do to help with medication.

“By then, my wife had brought me a new inhaler. A much stronger one than my inhaler. As soon as he said, I gave it to him and by evening I had my own attack which was beyond the Ventolin inhaler.

“By morning, the situation clearly was dangerous. I could have died, it was that dangerous. The director then was feeling so helpless because they took me to Nsawam Hospital, they couldn’t manage the situation. There [was] to be an evacuation to Korle Bu or 37 or wherever.

“It was my wife who had to organize [an] ambulance from Koforidua to come to Nsawam because there was no ambulance anywhere. And first to 37 and they realized that the ICU could probably not handle the situation so they took me to Korle Bu,” he narrated.

Tsatsu Tsikata, however, felt some sense of fulfilment after he learnt of the impact of his act of kindness ten years on.

“The good news is that I was able to have medical attention and thank God I’m still alive. That also meant, the prisoner was also saved and can you believe that ten years from the day that I went to prison, we went with Pastor Jones and a medical team to do a medical outreach?

“A prisoner walks to me and ask do you remember me? I’m the one who came for that inhaler to give to the person who had [an] asthmatic attack. That person is always grateful to you because his life was saved, he came out of prison and now he is in Germany. And he can’t stop recalling that inhaler moment. That is why I say that they might mean it for evil but God meant it for good,” he said.

Notorious armed robber’s jail term increases to 90 years

Prince Adu, also known as Dracula, a notorious armed robber, who was handed a cumulative 63 years jail sentence by a Ho Circuit Court for three robbery offences, had his jail term increased to 90 years when the court sentenced him to an additional 27 years in hard labour for a similar offence.

The robber, who pleaded guilty to the charge, would have his new sentence run concurrently with the earlier convictions.

Narrating the fact to the court, presided over by Felix Datsomor, Chief Inspector Stephen Atidzon said the complainant (name withheld) is a trader and resident of New Housing, a suburb of Ho.

He said the complainant, who was returning to her house from Ho Barracks New Town, stopped a motorcycle, which had the convict and his accomplice, a juvenile, now committed in a borstal home on board on May 29, last year, at about 2200 hours.

The prosecution said the convict after hearing where the destination of the victim was, asked her to get on board and told her that he and his accomplice would be alighting soon.

Chief Inspector Atidzon said on reaching Donorkordzi cemetery, the complainant opted to alight, seeing that the vehicle was heading into the bush.

Prosecution said the convict also alighted immediately with the complainant and snatched her purse containing an amount of Gh¢100.00 and her itel mobile phone valued at Gh¢500.00.

He said the juvenile then removed a two-edged sharp machete from his bag and gave it to the convict and they started assaulting the complainant.

Prosecution said the rider tried to intervene and pleaded on behalf of the victim but the convict ordered him to move away from the scene immediately, which he did, leaving the victim behind.

Chief Inspector Atidzon said the victim, in an attempt to protect herself against the assault, held the edge of the machete, and the convict pulled it, resulting in a deep cut in her palm.

Prosecution said the convict then ordered the victim to remove her dress and he forcibly had sex with her after which he asked the victim to give him an additional money.

He said the convict, after having sexual intercourse with the complainant, ordered her to sit on one of the tombs whilst they leave, threatening to kill her if she disobeyed the order.

Prosecution said after the convict and his accomplice left, the victim quickly ran to Godokpui Police checkpoint and reported the incident to the Police on duty and they also informed the patrol team.

The juvenile was arrested on a motorcycle but the convict managed to escape, the Prosecution said.

Prosecution said on February 18, this year, the convict was arrested in a different case and was re-arrested on February 27, and pleaded guilty to the offence in his investigation statement, hence the stiffer punishment.
