Doctors Reverse Themselves on Fatty Foods and Cancer

RUSH: In other health-related news, you remember all those times you heard "if you just eat your fruits and vegetables," that you'll ward off cancer, and you'll ward off diabetes. You eat your fruits and vegetables, you go out there and walk through the woods and pick up some berries and eat 'em, that's healthy.  Eat carrots, eat cauliflower, eat broccoli and eat all of that stuff, and you'll be healthy and you'll be wealthy and you'll be wise and you won't get cancer. And of course people ate it up. They started doing that, and mothers started advocating it and so forth. 

It turns out they just had a giant cancer convention.  The American Association for Cancer Research, 18,500 researchers and other professionals gathered, and they were depressed because when it comes to cancer they all had to admit that there is little, if any, evidence that fruits and vegetables are protective or that fatty foods are bad. 

"This month at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, a mammoth event that drew more than 18,500 researchers and other professionals here, the latest results about diet and cancer were relegated to a single poster session and a few scattered presentations. There were new hints that coffee may lower the risk of some cancers and more about the possible benefits of vitamin D. Beyond that there wasn’t much to say. ... The situation seemed very different in 1997, when the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research published a report, thick as a phone book, concluding that diets loaded with fruits and vegetables might reduce the overall incidence of cancer by more than 20 percent."

It was bogus!  It was dead wrong.  It was a wild guess.  They didn't know. 

"After reviewing more than 4,000 studies, the authors were persuaded that green vegetables helped ward off lung and stomach cancer. Colon and thyroid cancer might be avoided with broccoli, cabbage and brussels sprouts. Onions, tomatoes, garlic, carrots and citrus fruits all seemed to play important roles. In 2007, a major follow-up all but reversed the findings."

Remember all the news about how grilled beef, grilled hamburger, was filled with carcinogens?  BS.  Totally bogus.  The research isn't there.  It was just as big a hoax as all this climatology business is.  It was more monkeying by the left. It was more massaging, the attempt to control everybody, and there's even a pull quote from this story, one doctor  is described as ruefully having to -- here it is.  "In the opening plenary session, Dr. Walter C. Willett, a Harvard epidemiologist who has spent many years studying cancer and nutrition, sounded almost rueful as he gave a status report. Whatever is true for other diseases, when it comes to cancer there was little evidence that fruits and vegetables are protective or that fatty foods are bad."

In other words, little evidence that what we told you in 1997 was in any way related to the truth.  There's little evidence that what we've told you all of these years was true.  In fact, the evidence is that what we told you all these years was lies, bogus, wrong.  And so now they're admitting that the whole equation of what people eat and how it relates to the uncontrolled creation of cells called cancer is still largely unknown.  No kidding.  Once again, how many billions of people are there?  To say that all six billion people can do X and avoid getting Y or Z?  This never ending effort to deny individuality and differences is just massive.  It is just massive.  The ongoing effort to make everybody the same, to have everybody conform to the same way of living, thinking, breathing, sleeping, eating, is just relentless.  It doesn't stop.  


2.7 Million Obamacare Enrollees Still Unaccounted For

RUSH: Investors.com: "2.7 Million Obamacare Enrollees Still Unaccounted For." How can this be?  I thought they told us they reached their seven million figure. "Affordable Care Act: President Obama has for a while been bragging that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare. But the administration still hasn't released the state-by-state numbers to back up that number. You'd think that with such good news, the administration would want to put out as many details as possible, as soon as possible. But judging by previous months, the latest Health and Human Services enrollment report is now nearly two weeks behind schedule. As a result, we still don't know where 2.7 million Obamacare enrollees came from."


Hawaii Obamacare Exchange Has Signed up Just 8K

RUSH:  "Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are 'frustrated and embarrassed' by Hawaii's failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii's busted Obamacare program."

Hey, this is all Democrats.  These are not just Democrats, these are socialists.  This is the place, the city council of Honolulu voted to reprimand me for some reason.  I mean, that's how leftist these people are.  I forget what it was for.  I think there was even an arrest warrant if I was spotted in town for something, for something I said on the radio.  It might have been -- I know what it was!  It was Democrat Senator Leland Yee, when I was doing my impersonation of the ChiCom premier, the Honolulu city council, town council, whatever, had an open condemnation, resolution condemning me and open arrest warrant and so forth. And I'm a regular tourist visitor to Honolulu.  I bring a lot of tourist dollars there.  They're never gonna arrest me.  Don't worry about that.  But this is all Democrats. 

There's another story from a Democrat that voted against Obamacare in Massachusetts and echoing what a lot of other people who have the temerity to be honest are saying.  However bad it is now, you don't have the slightest idea how bad it's gonna be when it really gets fully implemented.  The Democrats are trying to change the definition of terms and change the discussion for upcoming elections because they're trying to convince Republicans that Obamacare is not a winning issue for 'em.  And some Republicans are stupidly going along with it.  So we gotta deal with that, too.  


RUSH:  That's right.  Just wait 'til people who signed up for Obamacare try to find a doctor on their network.  There are a thousand doctors listed on the California Obamacare website that don't accept plans.  A thousand doctors, Covered California, who will not accept Obamacare insurance plans.  And yet they're listed.  Wait 'til people find that out.  It was the Hawaii city council that passed a resolution demanding that I apologize to Hu Jintao for making fun of the way he speaks, which I wasn't doing.  I was doing a Chinese impersonation of translation during a press conference and it was Leland Yee, Democrat senator San Francisco, the gunrunning guy now, who got it all started by demanding that I apologize.  That's when the Hawaii city council picked up on it, and that's what that was.
