A lot of people seem to be concerned lately about whether it is safe to go to a chiropractor. Maybe it has something to do with the usual misunderstanding of anatomy and medicine by the media and in the latest case, the coroner who is a trained medical expert. In case you haven’t heard and if you haven’t I really don’t know where you’ve been, but the Playboy model that was considered killed by her chiropractor was going to die if she had decided to have her hair washed that day instead of going to the chiropractor. That is not my opinion because how could I know such a thing, that is based on statistics. She damaged her vertebral artery when she fell on her neck. It seems the E.R. did not do Ultrasound Dopler testing of her arteries. Days later she went to the chiropractor. The arteries were already damaged and while a chiropractor does not generate enough force to tear the artery linings, well unless he is as strong as a camel, he turned out to be that camel that broke a back instead of breaking his own. I don’t mean to make light of the situation, but so much misinformation leads to so much needless suffering. Here is just one reason why I just said needless suffering.
Below are the side effects from the newest drug being advertised on T.V. by Bristol-Myers Squibb, called Opdivo, which is intended to fight cancer. You are nothing more than a medical experiment to these corporations. In fact, they thanked all the victims for participating in the study. If you want to cut to the chase and just take my word that this drug is extremely dangerous then skip the laughs below and read the last two lines.
Can cause your immune system to attack normal organs and tissues. These problems are sometimes serious and life threatening and can lead to death.
Opdivo used in combination with Yervoy can lead to a quicker death. These problems can occur after you stop using the drugs.

If stem cells are being used, Opdivo can cause severe death.
Misc: It can kill your baby. The list is getting rather long so it does basically say to tell your health care provider if you have any of over a few dozen diseases because their product doesn’t work well in those circumstances.
Do I have a point?
Some people are serious when they say that they are afraid to go to the Chiropractor. Give me a break. If you do, I got your back.
