Bad Medicine

Author and political appointee Lance Simmens has published about 180 articles in the Huffington Post, but his most recent article, "Why our Children Should Hate Us," applauding the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover up to Catastrophe was pulled from HuffPo. In the first half, he joined Richard Syrett to discuss his contention that there is corruption in agencies like the EPA and FDA and other government entities tasked with the protection of the public.

Dr. Elena Gabor was the guest in part two. Gabor is a specialist in subconscious science and a researcher into non-ordinary states of consciousness including past-lives. She uses past life regressions to help clients resolve psychological problems. Her patient Gina Rodriguez joined the program to share her experiences and participated a live regression on the air.

Bad Medicine

Show Archive
Date: Friday - September 17, 2004
Host: George Noory
Guests: Open Lines, Robert Trombley

During Friday night's Open Lines, George prescribed a "Medical Misfits" hotline for people with stories about healthcare gone bad. One caller recounted his painful experience during a root canal procedure. According to him, an inexperienced dentist accidentally got a drill stuck in his tooth and was unable to remove it -- the drill still resides in his mouth to this day.

Another caller said his father was hospitalized for a routine hernia surgery, and ended up being poisoned when talcum powder from the surgeon's gloves was left inside his body. The infection caused a gaping hole in the shape of a football to open up in his father's torso, requiring three months to heal.

Dave from Lincoln, Nebraska described the time his wife was giving birth. He said the doctors preformed a C-section and left gauze behind his wife's uterus, causing her to swell. Thankfully, the doctors recognized their mistake and were able to remove the gauze before it caused a serious infection.

Forecasting Volcanoes

During the first two hours of Friday's show, volcanologist Robert "R.B." Trombley, Ph.D., discussed volcanic activity around the world and his ERUPTION Pro 10.5 forecasting software. Trombley currently monitors 494 active volcanoes, which have erupted at least once in the last 10,000 years. Using complex math and historical data, Trombley's forecasting software has accurately predicted 89.36% of the volcanic eruptions for 2004.

One potentially devastating volcano that Trombley cannot forecast, however, is Yellowstone. According to Trombley, Yellowstone has erupted a total of three times, the last time was 640,000 years ago. He said the problem with forecasting Yellowstone is the lack of historical data to plug into his software. Despite the insufficient data, Trombley believes Yellowstone will erupt again. Trombley is most concerned with Mount Rainier, which he calls "the single most dangerous volcano in United States." He said Rainier has erupted 19 times and is overdue for a massive eruption on the scale of Mount St. Helens. Fortunately, there is almost no chance of Rainier erupting in 2004, Trombley concluded.
