Taking Apart Bad Science
Today, an article made headlines around the world that was published by The Lancet: Public Health, a side-shoot of the top academic journal at the moment. The article is open access so you can download and read it if you are scientifically minded. I copy-pasted parts of the study to show you the many errors. I incorporate my thoughts here and there, breaking the quotes and bolded particularly important sections I need to talk about.
“Study design and participants
The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study is an ongoing, prospective observational study of cardiovascular risk factors in four US communities (Forsyth County, NC; Jackson, MS; suburbs of Minneapolis, MN; and Washington County, MD), initially consisting of participants aged 45–64 years who were recruited between 1987 and 1989 (Visit 1) Study participants were examined at follow-up visits, with the second visit occurring between 1990 and 1992, the third between 1993 and 1995, the fourth between 1996 and 1998, the fifth between 2011 and 2013, and the sixth between 2016 and 2017…”
Note that this study has six different time frames, each of which is several years apart.

I just finished watching an awesome 28-minute video from Dr. Georgia Ede about nutrition. The discussion was supposed to be on depression, but as everything that is part of the body, nutrition also drives mental health or illnesses. So before I could count till five, she was discussing nutrition.
In case you are short on time, I have screen captured five essential slides from her presentation that I will post here and explain what is what.

article was just released. I wrote this article after a long research period of this new drug that received FDA approval just recently and some migraineurs are already on it.
The research quite strongly shows that the drug doesn’t work as intended–only a couple of migraine-free days are gained per month. I have migraineurs who are on Aimovig who joined my migraine group because it doesn’t work.

The Daily Mail writes:
The article was just published in the Daily Mail newspaper by Jane Feinmann, a journalist, about the Stanton Migraine Protocol, one of my migraineurs, and me. This (rather careful) article was written as a result of a YouTube video, recorded in speech challenge class, where my migraineur decided to make her public speech challenge into a testimonial for the Stanton Migraine Protocol. You can find the video here:

Migraine is Not a Disease
The ultimate testimonial from one of my migraineurs is a speech she gave in which she refers to her migraines and how she no longer has them and why.
She mentions my name as Angela and discusses one of the most important part of my protocol. In case the embed doesn’t work, here is the link to her speech.

Oh Why Can’t We Watch This in the US?
A Facebook friend from the UK sent me this message:
“Just watched a fantastic programme on BBC1, ‘The Truth About Carbs’ featuring Dr David Unwin and his diabetes reversal programme. The low carb programme has been accepted by the Royal College of GPs and is being rolled out across the UK! At long last, wonderful news! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼😃
So excited!! Can’t believe I just watched this and the announcement at the end is fantastic! 😃😃👍🏽”
Unfortunately this is a BBC ONE program and is not available in the US as a result of some legal gibberish! If you are in the UK, watch it here.

Prolamins: Guilty as Charged
My latest blog article was just published today on whether eating gluten-free is enough for health. I give a perspective of grains you have never heard of before. Please share to all–whether they are gluten sensitive or not. If you decide to eat grain, at least understand what you are eating!
Comments are welcome as always and are moderated for appropriateness.

Aimovig™ (Erenumab) for Migraine Prevention.
Should You or Should You Not?
Below you find my description of what this new drug does and how and several comments from migraine sufferers that are worthy to read. All of this comes from my public person Facebook page, so you can find it all here. I copy-pasted the discussion as it is at this moment.
After reading this, you will see why you should tell all your friends to stop informing you of this new drug and leave you alone. This drug is not for you.

Another Doctor Came Around!
I will be posting all these unusual events that my migraineurs go through so you can see how hard it is to change one’s nutrition approach by turning against the USDA dietary guidelines and get the acceptance (let alone support and help) of your doctor.
This migraineur is in Canada, which makes it even harder, since they have a socialized medicine that I so far found–through other migraineurs in Canada–to be extremely rigid, allowing treatments only within a very narrow set of guidelines. So I was so shocked to read what happened–as was my migraineur to experience her visit to her doctor–so I decided to share with you (with her permission) what she wrote about her visit today. This is in the ketogenic group I manage that you can find here:
