In this contemporary world, people sometimes tend to put their faith wholeheartedly in doctors.
People do that because of the fact that they are 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 tumour. 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 per cent 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.
The majority of the persons suffering from high blood pressure and using 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 about 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 changes.
He went away to sue the doctor for not telling him that 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 issued 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 getting 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 a 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.
