Dr. Tran on Ageism in Western Medicine
We are very fortunate to have Dr. Vu Kiet Tran back this month to talk about Ageism.
Ageism is discriminating or stereotyping someone based on their age. It is very much prevalent in Western medical culture. It presents in insidious ways, such as the observed tendency for doctors to dismiss patients and pathologies in seniors due to old age; the severe lack of geriatric specialists in many provinces; and the fact that seniors spend less time talking to their physicians than any other age group.
Dr. Tran and Dr. Dimitre conclude that being aware of our inherent ageism is the first step in combating it.

Podcast 73: Colchicine in Cardiovascular Disease Prevention
The bulb-like corms of C. autumnale contain colchicine, a useful drug for inflammatory conditions.
Colchicine has been used as an anti-inflammatory medication for centuries. The plant source of colchicine, the autumn crocus, was indeed used in Ancient Egypt as a treatment for rheumatism and swelling.
Currently, colchicine is indicated for treatment of inflammatory conditions such as gout, pericarditis, and Mediteranian fever. Based on a few recent studies, its use will likely be expanded to treat an even more common and serious inflammatory condition; cardiovascular disease.
During this podcast, we will go over the evidence supporting the use of low dose, daily colchicine in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
