Google News could cause anyone to think the only science on this planet is from Mars with three of four articles featuring scientific speculation (unprovable theories) and a 4th article also about outer space. “Totally useless information is like a junk food diet with nothing the body can use,” says Richard Ruhling, MD who has two other science degrees and laments the failure of media to reflect useful news that readers can help readers.

Another example of fake news is ‘healthcare’ from drug companies offering relief of symptoms without addressing the cause which textbooks say are of ‘unknown etiology,’ says Ruhling who was board-certified in Internal Medicine  before teaching Health Science at Loma Linda University.

Ruhling says media worships science for an increase in life expectancy when compared with 100 years ago, but a man of 50 then had the same life expectancy as now--the increase in life comes from eliminating death from childhood infectious disease that are averaged in.

Dr. Breslow’s study at UCLA shows a 30-year advantage from 7 health habits compared to those who broke all 7 rules. The big three are smoking, drinking and obesity, but exercise, sleep, water intake and mental attitudes are important--news everyone can use.

With true healthcare (our choice of health habits) far outclassing medical care for longevity, rather than “Ask your doctor,” those with specific health problems might do better to visit YouTube and search Tedtalks for their condition to learn how foods may be the cause and cure of the problem. The focus on outer space is not limited to NASA, but also to drug research for cures when the cause is bad diet.

Readers should beware of fake news about education, government and religion.
