Please help cut MD-obstetrician malpractice liability insurance premiums - I'm assuming this is "general" insurance. See the quotes from the IBC document below. Marcy Ascencio/Cleveland Chiro College recruiter, my last email to you too... MDs are harming babies en masse and one Cleveland recruit - Bob Dubin, DC - is actively censoring. See below... CCAIF Secretariat CAROL GRAVELLE [email protected]: Some babies are DYING (an estimated six per DAY) as MDs commit insurance fraud - senselessly closing birth canals - then GRUESOMELY manipulating most babies' spines at birth.. Carol, PLEASE help get this anti-fraud message ou via your CHALLENGES AND CHAMPIONS newsletter, as in, "CHALLENGES AND CHAMPIONS, the CCAIF joint newsletter with Insurance Bureau of Canada's Investigative Services Division, is considered one of the most effective tools for getting the anti- fraud messages out." http://www.ibc.ca/ccaif_about.asp PREGNANT WOMEN: Please join me in asking Frontline/WGBH to help stop MDs from closing birth canals. LADIES: Again, it's easy to allow your birth canal to OPEN an "extra" up to 30%. See below. VAGINAS: Allowing your birth canal to open maximally helps protect your vagina AND your baby's brain - details below. CCAIF has a CHIRO advisor - the Canadian Chiropractic Association/CCA http://www.ibc.ca/ccaif_about.asp (NOTE: Foot-dragging CCA Governor PAUL CAREY, DC is also president of the World Federation of Chiropractic. Copied to Paul via [email protected]) IMAGINE THAT!! CANADA'S CHIROPRACTORS are CCAIF advisors (!) and CCA (chiro!) leaders are ignoring the massive (sometimes fatal) MD spinal manipulation insurance fraud! Did I say this insurance fraud is SOMETIMES FATAL?! ALERT! /////OFFBEAT ODDBALL INSURANCE FRAUD///// ALERT (!) "The CCAIF['s CAROL GRAVELLE] collects the most offbeat and oddball insurance frauds on an annual basis. If you would like to submit one, please contact Carol Gravelle at [email protected]" http://www.ibc.ca/ccaif_top10.asp Carol - I'm submitting a doozy: MDs and DCs are committing "offbeat and oddball insurance fraud" - via silence - mothers and babies be damned... OPEN LETTER (to be instantly archived for global access at: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2244) Raney Aronson Producer, Writer and Director ALTERNATIVE FIX (Frontline/WGBH, PBS, Thursday, November 6, at 9pm)... [email protected] Also via [email protected] and [email protected] Raney, I'm looking forward to your ALTERNATIVE FIX Frontline special tonite. I suspect your Frontline special neglected to mention the most prolific "alternative" providers of spinal manipulation - MD-obstetricians. A huge CRIME is being committed: MD-obstetricians are *knowingly* closing birth canals - up to 30% See below my two simple PROOFS that MD-obstetricians are knowingly closing birth canals up to 30%. As noted below, I am in favor of pardons in advance for MDs... CHIROPRACTIC BIRTH EMERGENCY... In addition to senselessly closing birth canals, MDs are gruesomely manipulating spines - pushing and pulling on the *tiniest* spines - with birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%. Some babies are dying... OBs are killing an estimated six babies per DAY with vacuum-assisted spinal manipulation alone - with birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%... See USUAL MECHANISM (PS5) in my article, "Pregnant chiro patients: BIZARRE chiro legislation - babies be damned..." http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2135 MD-obstetricians CAUSE cephalopelvic disproportion (and failure to progress) - then perform c- sections BEcause of cephalopelvic disproportion (and failure to progress)! Epidural pain relief is a godsend for some women - but why close birth canals and make women beg for it? MORE MD crime against mothers... MDs are performing "generous" episiotomies when they use their vacuum extractors and forceps... MDs are performinig episiotomies - "generous" or otherwise - in MOST births! Stated more usefully, in most births MDs are routinely SLASHING VAGINAS - surgically/FRAUDULENTLY inferring they are doing everything possible to OPEN birth canals - even as they CLOSE birth canals - up to 30%! Why close birth canals and chemically whip the uterus to contract VIOLENTLY? See OXYTOCIN SCREAMING... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2242 "Off label" CYTOTEC SCREAMING... Cytotec also makes the uterus contract violently... Cytotec is being used "off label" - never having been tested for use during labor... Not long ago, Cytotec manufacturer Searle wrote a letter to OBs "repudiating" the use of Cytotec. FDA *banned* Cytotec use in birth... OBs complained and "pressured" FDA to rescind the ban because Cytotec (Misoprostol) "was in such common use." The words in quotes are from Henci Goer's EXCELLENT article, "'Spin Doctoring' the Research." [Birth. (Jun)2003;30(2):124-29] See OBs causing 'short violent labors'/Semisitting birth is NOT physiological! (Attn: ICEA/Nurse Coleman) http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2008 MEDICAL BIRTH BAD FOR VAGINAS... MD-obstetricians are SLASHING VAGINAS en masse ("routine episiotomy") - surgically/FRAUDULENTLY inferring they are doing everything possible to OPEN the birth canal - even as they CLOSE the birth canal! Michael C. Klein, MD writes: "[E]pisiotomy is a deliberate second degree tear." [Birth. Letter. 2002;29(1):74] MDs still claim (fraudulently) that their episiotomies are *preventing* severe tears clear to the anus when in fact MDs are CAUSING severe tears clear to the anus! In 1990 the National Institutes of Health researched the issue and found that deliberate tears by MDs (episiotomies) cause fifty times MORE severe tears (tears clear to the anus) relative to leaving the vagina alone.[Shiono et al. Obstet Gynecol 1990;75(5):765-70. In Klein et al. Online J Curr Clin Trials (Jul1)1992, Doc. No. 10] "The most common diagnosis for hospitalization among all women is trauma to perineum due to childbirth." http://www.ahcpr.gov/data/hcup/factbk3/factbk3.htm MDs are deliberately/senselessly traumatizing perinea - and calling it "childbirth." (!) I say again: MD-obstetricians are SLASHING VAGINAS en masse ("routine episiotomy") - surgically/FRAUDULENTLY inferring they are doing everything possible to OPEN the birth canal - even as they CLOSE the birth canal! This is not childbirth! This is MEDICAL birth - it's the largest insurance fraud! Why are INSURANCE companies letting MDs close birth canals?! I've asked insurance fraud professionals about this... The director of fraud ops at The Hartford "responded"...in effect telling me not to tell him about such things... See Vagina-related insurance fraud (Dan Fitz. at The Hartford, you're removed) http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2228 CANADA'S John Zubkowski wrote: "TODD GASTALDO: I DO NOT WISH TO RECEIVE ANY FURTHER MESSAGES FROM YOU. THANK YOU." John ostensibly works for Canada's Insurance Crime Prevention Bureau. (see http://www.iasiu.com/chapter/index.cfm) Why is HE (an insurance crime prevention guy!) ignoring MDs senselessly closing birth canals? Should general insurance folks (property and casualty, or "P&C" insurers) be interested? YES! The general insurance industry is a HUGE employer - a "major funder of healthcare" (see IBC quote below). MANY general insurance employees are having their birth canals senselessly closed by MDs. THINK ABOUT IT The grisly spectacle of MDs closing birth canals not only hurts general insurance employees and their babies - it drives up the cost of HEALTH insurance for general insurance companies and their employees! ALSO... Since general insurance (property and casualty, or "P&C" insurance)...covers our possessions and our liability (responsibility) to others for our mistakes (general insurance includes the people and resources involved in providing all types of insurance OTHER than life and health insurance)... http://www.fraudcoalition.org/gii.asp General insurance MAY include malpractice liability insurance for MD-obstetricians... MD-obstetricians are getting sued right and left for their mistakes! MD-obstetricians themselves are moaning loudly about the rising cost of LIABILITY insurance for MD-obstetricians! FORTUNATELY, 220 general/property and casualty insurers in Canada (IBC members) say something should be done - esp. in regard to PREVENTION - and (get this) "REGARDLESS OF WHO IS PROVIDING PAYMENT," as in, "Launch a permanent national effort on injury prevention (p. 3)...[KEY STRATEGY:] Improving the flow of information to the public about health system performance and costs...There is...sound evidence of the need for the major funders of health care to work together to develop specific mechanisms to strengthen individual accountability for the proper use of health system resources, regardless of who is providing payment. (p. 9)" --RESTORING CONFIDENCE (The Insurance Bureau of Canada/IBC)^^^ IBC is a "major funder of healthcare." (!) ^^^RESTORING CONFIDENCE is IBC's - the Insurance Bureau of Canada's - Sept. 2001 submission to the The Commission on the Future of Health Care in Canada and The Standing Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology http://www.ibc.ca/pdffiles/publications/submissions/restoring_confidence- sept2001.pdf IBC should at least TALK to OTHER "major funders of health care" - the ones who pay MDs - and demand that they stop paying MDs who close birth canals! IBC says: "Thirty million Canadians are the true owners of our health care system. As individual users, they need to have the information and the knowledge to make informed choices about their health care." (p. 22) My sentiments EXACTLY! I'll cc IBC's Robert Cooke, Chairman and Stan Griffin President and C.E.O., via [email protected] ("IBC represents more than 220 member insurance companies. We work to improve the environment in which our members operate to the ultimate benefit of insurance consumers." http://www.fraudcoalition.org/newsmedia_president.asp IBC and CCAIF (the Canadian Coalition Against Insurance Fraud)... NOTE: According to one IBC web page, "There are many Regional Chapters of the Canadian Coalition Against Insurance Fraud [CCAIF]...Each Chapter is run by committed volunteers from the insurance industry (such as brokers, claims handlers, investigators) and from the fire, law enforcement, HEALTH CARE consumer-related sectors...CCAIF Regional Chapters exist in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia... Accordingly, I'm copying CCAIF Quebec: Robert Tremblay, [email protected]; CCAIF Saskatchewan: Rod Wotherspoon [email protected]; CCAIF British Columbia: Steve Reihl [email protected]; CCAIF Alberta: Louise Bremness [email protected] http://www.ibc.ca/ccaif_about_regional.asp WHY are insurance folks and DCs and MDs remaining silent about the fraud??? PREGNANT WOMEN: You can allow your birth canal to OPEN the "extra" up to 30% - just roll onto your side - or use kneeling or hands-and-knees or stand or squat - ANYTHING but semisitting or dorsal. WARNINGS: 1. Most MD-obstetricians close the birth canal up to 30%^^^ even as they acknowledge that closing the birth canal FAR LESS can kill. 2. Some MD-obstetricians will let you "try" "alternative" delivery positions BUT they will move you back to dorsal or semisitting (close your birth canal up to 30%!) for the actual delivery! ^^^NOTE: If the pubic arch is narrow, semisitting and dorsal likely close the birth canal MORE than 30% in some women. According to Williams Obstetrics : "...With increasing narrowing of the pubic arch, the occiput cannot emerge directly beneath the symphysis pubis but is forced increasingly farther down...the ischiopubic rami. In extreme cases, the head must rotate around a line joining the ischial tuberosities [!] (p. 438)..." PROOF that MDs know they are closing birth canals: At my request, the authors of Williams Obstetrics *published* "my" biomechanics - but they left in their text the "dorsal widens" bald lie that first called my attention to their text. Here are the biomechanics that were added at my request to Williams Obstetrics: "It should be noted...that the increase in the diameter of the pelvic outlet occurs *only* if the sacrum is allowed to rotate posteriorly..." [3:285, *italics* in original] OBVIOUS NEGLIGENCE: The authors of Williams Obstetrics left in their text (in the same paragraph!) the "dorsal widens" bald lie that first called my attention to their text. For a discussion of other obvious obstetric negligence - and how the 30% figure was radiographically derived - see http://home1.gte.net/gastaldo/part2ftc.html. My thanks to Prof. Dr. Moyses Paciornik, MD, Curitiba, Brazil, for calling my attention to this chiropractic emergency. See the Paciornik and Gastaldo letters in Birth [1992;19:230] FURTHER proof that MDs know they are closing birth canals: ACOG's shoulder dystocia video purports to show MDs how to OPEN the birth canal maximally when the shoulders get stuck - which of course is an indirect admission that MDs are indeed routinely CLOSING birth canals... Unfortunately, the ACOG method for opening the birth canal (PROPER McRoberts) actually keeps it closed... See IMPROPER McRoberts can save tiny lives and tiny limbs... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/1308 (ACOG = Amercian College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists - the obstetric trade union to which most MD-obstetricians belong.) The massive MD crime is obvious. PARDONS FOR MDs... As always, I am in favor of pardons in advance for MDs. MDs are just academic prime cuts forced through this culture's most powerful mental meatgrinder - medical school. ONE LAST NOTE... MDs have blamed The Great Squat Robbery for their Great BIRTH Robbery, discussed above. See Gardosi et al.'s 1989 Lancet "randomised controlled trial of squatting" - where nobody squatted... Stopping MDs from closing birth canals up to 30% could help stop Western culture from robbing children of a fundamental human rest posture that just happens to double - if it isn't robbed - as a fundamental human DELIVERY posture - one that happens to OPEN the birth canal up to 30%... Obstetric ramifications aside, Western culture is robbing children of a way to take a rest on their feet! See Sarah Key's huge balls (also: Kids can SQUAT motionless for hours)... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2084 See also: Is squatting causing a global epidemic of knee problems? http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2241 (In regard to this latter post - no word back yet from WHO or Cyrus Cooper, MA, DM, FRCP, FMedSci, Co-ordinator, WHO/Bone and Joint Decade Scientific Group, 2000-current.) Raney, please help stop MDs from closing birth canals. Please use your media skills to stop both The Great Squat Robbery and The Great Birth Robbery... Thanks, Sincerely, Todd Dr. Gastaldo [email protected] PS Marcy Ascencio, Recruiter for Cleveland Chiro College, you are removed from my list. I must say I *like* that "Adjust your thinking" quote in your sig file! (Dr. DD Palmer, Founder of chiropractic, wrote a whole book on the subject, "Adjust your thinking," appropriately subtitled "The Chiropractor's Adjuster.") You wrote, "I do not think this type of info is directed to me." Au contraire! I directed "this type of info" to you and others at CCC because yours were the only email addresses listed at the CCC website (so far as I could tell). I directed "this type of info" to you in hopes that you would FORWARD it to Cleveland Chiro College Pres. Carl Cleveland III, DC I directed "this type of info" to you in hopes that Carl would (in effect) say to MDs (at the hospital with Cleveland chiros): "Adjust your thinking" - STOP closing birth canals - STOP gruesomely manipulating tiny spines. See again Birth position at hospital with chiropractors (Carl Cleveland III, DC)http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2214 Marcy, DID you forward "Birth position" to Carl? Did anyone? If someone *did* forward - and Carl is taking no action - then Carl is ignoring a *golden* opportunity to help save tiny lives and tiny limbs and PREVENT more vertebral subluxations than DCs will ever be able to adjust by hand. Marcy, I also directed "this type of info" to you because you or someone in your circle of family and friends could be having a baby. If *any women you know* gets pregnant - PLEASE tell them how easy it is for them to allow their birth canals to OPEN the "extra" up to 30%! But make sure they read the WARNINGS above. This type of info *is* (quite legitimately) directed to you - FOR you - for every woman - for the tiniest chiropractic patients. One Cleveland recruit - now a DC - Bob Dubin, DC - is ACTIVELY CENSORING me - to keep me from persistently reminding DCs that they have an obvious obligation... See Dubin, Zaleski, please don't censor... http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2233 I personally think Bob is hobnobbing - babies be damned - with "chiropractic" Attorney Mike Schroeder, the former Chairman of the Calif. Republican Party mentioned in the just cited post. I personally think past leaders of the Calif. Chiropractic Association made DEALS with political medicine - via Schroeder - and they CAN'T do anything - their hands were tied long ago... I have no proof - just the "chiropractic" silence of DCs who should know better. Marcy, a MASSIVE MD spinal manipulation crime is occurring... It is unethical for chiropractic physicians to fail take simple action to PREVENT that which they charge to treat (the two largest chiro trade unions indicate that birth trauma causes vertebral subluxation). I urge you to speak to Carl personally about this. Finally Marcy... Your request to be removed from my list was so nice - so courteous - but your thinking is simply wrong - "this type of info" is directed to you - for legitimate reasons. Again, you are off my list. Good luck in your recruiting efforts. CHIROPRACTORS: Please help stop MDs from closing birth canals: Help save tiny lives and tiny limbs and PREVENT more vertebral subluxations than DCs will ever be able to adjust by hand.
