Popular and Scientific Media Like the AMA Journal Share the Blame!

Innumerable advertisements and articles for decades advocated tragically inaccurate medical advice such as: Cigarettes for your health (actually cause cancer and emphysema), baby formula to replace breast-feeding for optimal nutrition (actually result in obesity and decreased immunity), statin drugs for primary prevention of heart disease (instead cause muscle diseases, neuropathy, and fatigue), NSAID drugs for osteoarthritis (increase the incidence of kidney disease, gastric ulcers and heart attacks), and constant sunblock to prevent skin cancers (vitamin D deficiency increases solid cancers, heart attacks, strokes, autoimmune disease, and osteoporosis). So-called medical experts can be wrong, dead wrong.
