Coleman's Laws
« on: 31 August 2012, 02:14:35 PM »
Hi All

I have started reading a book that was recommended to me by a friend.

It is by Vernon Coleman and is called Coleman's Laws. It is interesting but I haven't got far because reading it is winding me up. Has anyone on here read it? It supposedly has a chapter devoted to Diabetes.

I will keep reading it but I get the feeling it won't help my growing skepticism of HCP's.

I have also ordered one of his books called Bodypower - I've heard good things about that too.

It makes a change from my usual Tom Clancy/Chris Ryan books  :)

Cheers

Si

Hi

I can't find any information on it.  What is his point that he's trying to get across?

I could recommend some blogs written by Doctors who endorse low carb if you want to see another POV.

This is his website... http://www.vernoncoleman.com/

I've read a couple of chapters so far and to be honest it seems a bit sensationalist to me but my friend (Has an aversion to medications), he would see me taking my 7 different types of medications and shake his head. He suggested I read it and see if it would change my view on the medical system.  To be honest that has already started happening thanks to this forum.

Here are some quotes from his book on his website  http://www.vernoncoleman.com/quotesfrom.htm

I was just wondering if anyone else had read anything by him.

Hmmmm... whilst I like a number of his comments (some made me smile), I disagree quite strongly with others and some are purely sensationalism e.g.
Quote
The food in hospitals is diabolical and contributes enormously to the death rate among patients. It is, for example, quite absurd that hospitals should continue to serve meat dishes to patients. Since the evidence linking meat to cancer is just as convincing as that linking tobacco to cancer it would make as much sense for nurses to walk around the wards handing out cigarettes.' (page 98)

I think a woman desperate for a child would most certainly disagree that infertility treatment ranks alongside cosmetic surgery as a luxury.
Quote
While people with suspected cancer have to wait months for essential investigations our politically correct system means that money and resources are spent on providing such non-essential luxuries as cosmetic surgery and infertility treatment. (page 137)

I do fear the book is full of silliness like that but I will continue with it.

Hmmm perhaps I won't bother finishing it.

I don't think there is anything to be gained

If you want to read something I recommend following these blogs:
http://www.wheatbellyblog.com/2011/07/who-is-dr-william-davis/  written by Cardiologist William Davis.
http://drjamescarlson.blogspot.co.uk/search?updated-min=2012-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&updated-max=2013-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&max-results=11  written by Dr James Carlson (who has made some videos worth watching too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4hwr_it7kk 7 or 8 parts, try to view them in order).
Michael Eades is worth following.  That's 3 doctors who talk sense.
I think you've read Alan's blog too? Not a Dr but worth listening to  ;)
