In 1961 and 1984 Time magazine published cover stories citing that dietary saturated fat and cholesterol was the cause of heart disease:

I almost fell out of my chair upon hearing about the popular antibiotic Cipro at about 36 minutes into this podcast:

Two years ago I was prescribed Cipro on two occasions about three months apart.  I took 14-day treatments for diverticulitis.  It was shortly thereafter that I began to experience Parkinson’s symptoms on the right-side of my body.  Could Cipro have been the trigger or even the sole cause of my neurological issues?  I will never be able to prove this, but I now have reason to believe that this was a likely cause.  Check out the following links.  It is unbelievable that this poison is still available and that so many doctors prescribe it.

This serious nerve damage potentially caused by fluoroquinolones may occur soon after these drugs are taken and may be permanent.
