Alan Cassels Speaks at Merchants of Doubt Screening

Last year during Naturopathic Medicine Week, BCNA screened GMO OMG.  It was a documentary which considered what goes into food, what ingredients are modified, and the lack of transparency behind major corporations such as Monsanto.

Merchants of Doubt

This year, BCNA is screening Merchants of Doubt, a movie which considers the so-called experts who weigh in on studies, research and advances in science, but who are more often than not paid by corporations for their opinion.

This week, it has come to light that Monsanto has a whole department dedicated to nothing else except shooting down the scientists that discredit Monsanto product.

Merchants of Doubt exposes this trend towards news as corporate propaganda, and how it has an impact on our health and well-being.

Alan Cassels

Special screenings in Victoria and Vancouver during Naturopathic Medicine Week include special guest Alan Cassels.  Cassels is a health researcher at University of Victoria, an expert on the corporate interests which drive health headlines and, often, medical care.  He reports in his book Seeking Sickness that pharmaceutical companies sometimes put simple tests online with the goal of encouraging people to see their doctor to receive more tests. The ultimate objective is to sell more prescription drugs.

Free Arterial Stiffness Tests at Evergreen Wellness

Dr. Peter Yam invites you to set up your appointment now for a free Arterial Stiffness Test during Naturopathic Medicine Week. Call the doctor’s office at 250-881-7800 to set up your appointment (office hours are 9:00 – 5:00pm Monday to Friday).

What is an Arterial Stiffness Index (ASI) Test?

If arteries are non-flexible or hardened, the heart has to work much harder in order to push the blood through the partially occluded vessels.  These blockages and the extra strain on the heart are root causes of cardiovascular (CV) disease. The ASI is a quick way to determine whether your blood vessels have lost their elasticity and flexibility. The higher the ASI, the more likely you are to have hardening of the arteries.

Special Instructions: By appointment only. Please wear a loose-fitting t-shirt or shirt for this test.
