‘Home of Taylor Guitars’ LAKESIDE — The El Cajon City Council honored it’s own successful hometown and worldwide enterprise, Taylor Guitars, in a lifetime achievement recognition proclaiming Oct 28th, 2016 ‘Taylor Guitars Day.’ In an intimate celebration filled with stories of humble beginnings, selfless service to others, and the many contributions to schools and charities, those in attendance got to experience a backdrop of the critically acclaimed and historical craftsmanship that is exclusively the Taylor Guitars phenomenon. On behalf of the City, the Council gifted a stone monument inscribed with the words, ‘Home of Taylor Guitars’ which was unveiled in a rendering as the grand finale. I was honored to be invited and would not have missed out on the opportunity to, personally, thank them on behalf of our high schools. Kudos to the Mayor, Bill Wells and the City Council for the well-deserved tribute.

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Lies, Half-Truths Abound in Proposition Campaigns


t’s no secret that lies and half-truths are a central part of the ongoing presidential campaign. Entire websites are now devoted to the pursuit of fact-checking Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, with one saying well over half the statements of both are at least half false. There probably should be similar fact-checking for the campaigns around the 17 state propositions on the state’s ballot, on subjects as diverse as pot, pornography, plastic bags and, of course, taxes. Untrue statements abound there, too, both in the official ballot guide received by millions of voters in early October and in the expensive radio and television ad campaigns for those initiatives and the ballot’s lone referendum. Some of the most egregious, obvious and oft-repeated halftruths and exaggerations come in the harsh campaign against Proposition 56, which sees tobacco companies desperately trying to stave off a $2 per pack hike in cigarette taxes, with equivalent increases on other tobacco and nicotine products, from cigars to e-cigarettes. The no-on-56 ads, funded mainly by big tobacco companies like R.J. Reynolds and Philip Morris USA, claim the measure “cheats” schools out of about $600 million per year. The claim stems from current tax formulas giving education the lion’s share of state tax money. But those rules don’t apply to special taxes; they can be designated for specific purposes. The cigarette tax increase would cheat no one out of anything because schools don’t currently get that money and will not whether Prop. 56 passes or not. Which makes this claim a halftruth at best. The anti-56 ads also say most of its money would go to “special interests.” In fact, the vast majority would help Medi-Cal fund health care for the poor, in some ways a logical use of the money because studies show poor people smoke more per capita than the wealthy, and so are afflicted with more tobacco-related health problems. Then there are Props. 65 and 67, about plastic bags. Ballot arguments for 65 and against 67, which seeks to uphold the Legislature’s ban on thin plastic grocery bags, first claim the ban will produce “up to $300 million” in paper bag fees for grocery stores selling them at 10 cents each. But “up to $300 million” is a loose approximation. The actual amount may be five bucks or $290 million, or it may be nothing. The number isn’t exactly a lie, but it’s also not true, say the grocers, who claim they lose money on paper bags, which they say cost them 14 or 15 cents apiece. Again, beware unspecific numbers purveyed in ballot measure advertising. The half-truths around Prop. 58 are different, not involving money. Here, backers of bilingual education seek to overturn the partial ban on this education method, implying in their ballot arguments that bilingualism will teach English to immigrant pupils better than current English immersion classes. But before the 1996 Prop. 227 imposed today’s partial ban on bilingual classes – where students are taught primarily in their native language while also learning English – pupils gained English proficiency more slowly than they have since immersion became prevalent. Even the title of this proposition, placed on the ballot by state legislators, is misleading: “English proficiency” are the title’s first two words, masking the fact that it repeals the requirement that children be taught in English unless their parents sign a form requesting otherwise. Which means the whole campaign for Prop. 58 is based on verbal sleight of hand. The pharmaceutical industry will pour almost as much money into the campaign against Prop. 61 as Big Tobacco has in battling 56. Companies like Pfizer, Bristol Myers Squibb, Bayer, Amgen and more are behind ads that claim 61 will actually raise prescription prices. In fact, it would limit state programs like Medi-Cal to paying the same for drugs as the Veterans Administration pays. The presumption behind the ads is that if 61 passes, Big Pharma will raise prices to everyone, including the VA. That’s an untested presumption, with absolutely no evidence to back it up. Put this all together with other ads on still more propositions and Californians are seeing more lies and half-truths this fall than in any election season in memory. “Caveat emptor (let the buyer beware)” is an understatement this year.

Getting ‘Cooler’ as We Age

QA .

Is it my imagination, but am I getting fewer fevers than I did when I was younger?


The immune system doesn’t function as efficiently in older adults as it does in younger people. The body’s fever response to infection is not always automatic in elderly people. More than 20 percent of adults over age 65 who have serious bacterial infections do not have fevers. This brings us to germs, which are defined as microbes that cause disease. Infectious diseases caused by microbes are the leading cause of death. Microbes are microscopic organisms that are everywhere. Some microbes cause disease. Others are essential for health. Most microbes belong to one of four major groups: bacteria, viruses, fungi, or protozoa. Bacteria are made up of only one cell. Less than 1 percent of them cause diseases in humans. Harmless bacteria live in human intestines, where they help to digest food. Foods such as yogurt and cheese, are made using bacteria. Some bacteria produce dangerous poisons. Botulism, a severe form of food poisoning, is caused by toxins from bacteria. However, several vaccines are made from bacterial toxins. Viruses are among the smallest microbes.They consist of one or more molecules that contain the virus’s genes surrounded by a protein coat. Most viruses cause disease. They invade normal cells then multiply. There are millions of types of fungi. The most familiar ones are mushrooms, yeast, mold, and mildew. Some live in the human body, usually without causing illness. In fact, only about half of all types of fungi cause disease in humans. Penicillin and other antibiotics, which kill harmful bacteria in our bodies, are made from fungi. Protozoa are a group of microscopic one-celled animals. In humans, protozoa usually cause disease. Some protozoa, like plankton, are food for marine animals. Malaria is caused by a protozoan parasite. You can get infected by germs from other people in many different ways, including transmission through the air from coughing or sneezing, direct contact such as kissing or sexual intercourse, and touching infectious material on a doorknob, telephone, automated teller machine or a diaper. A variety of germs come from household pets. Dog and cat saliva can contain any of more than 100 different germs that can make you sick. Mosquitoes may be the most common insect carriers of disease. Mosquitoes can transmit malaria. Fleas that pick up bacteria from rodents can then transmit plague to humans. The tiny deer tick can infect humans with Lyme disease. We become immune to germs naturally and artificially. Before birth, we received natural immunity from our mothers. Once we are exposed to a germ, we develop natural immunity to it from special cells in our immune systems. Artificial immunity can come from vaccines. Most infections caused by microbes fall into three major groups: acute infections, chronic infections and latent infections. The common cold is an acute infection. Hepatitis C, which affects the liver, is a chronic viral infection. Chickenpox is an example of a latent infection that can emerge many years later and causes a disease called “shingles.” Handwashing is a simple and effective way to stop the transmission of germs. Health care experts recommend scrubbing your hands vigorously for at least 15 seconds with soap and water. It is especially important to wash your hands before touching food, after coughing or sneezing, after changing a diaper, and after using the toilet.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Study Concludes, MS Does Not Raise a Woman’s Risk of Breast Cancer


ultiple Sclerosis (MS), especially in premenopausal women, does not seem to be associated with breast cancer, as suggested in previous studies, researchers reported. And, they argue, the higher incidences of this cancer in postmenopausal women with MS may be due more to surveillance bias than true risk. The overall risk for cancer in MS patients is generally thought to be lower than in people without this disease, but the risk for certain cancers — like bladder cancer — is known to be higher. But research into a possible link between MS and breast cancer has yielded inconsistent results, and such an association is simply not considered as established or clear. To investigate this risk in premenopausal and postmenopausal women, researchers evaluated data from 19,330 MS patients, included in the Swedish Patient Register between 1968 and 2012, and individually matched with 10 non-MS con-

trols by age, gender, region of residence, and overall health at diagnosis (a total 193,458 controls). Among the MS patients, 87 premenopausal and 384 postmenopausal women subsequently developed breast cancer, while 942 premenopausal and 4,811 postmenopausal women without MS also developed breast cancer. Analyzing these results, researchers found no significant relationship between premenopausal breast cancer and MS, and a “moderately” higher risk (13 percent) among postmenopausal MS patients compared to women serving as postmenopausal controls. The postmenopausal risk of breast cancer also increased (21 percent) in women diagnosed with MS between 1968 and 1980, and in those diagnosed at age 65 or older. But those diagnosed with this cancer at more advanced ages had low tumor stages, implying a surveillance bias, as “MS patients are followed and monitored by medical clinics more frequent and tumors may be detected at an earlier stage,” the researchers wrote. As for those whose MS was diagnosed in the years prior to 1980, the researchers attributed the increased risk — not seen in other patient groups — to “prevalence cases,” and found the risk “statistically insignificant.” Based on these these findings and arguments, they also concluded: “Some previous studies have reported that the risk of cancer is increased among MS patients who have been treated for their disease. Our results argue against a major influence of MS therapies on risk of breast cancer.”

BREAKING NEWS Doctor Makes Hearing Aids Affordable for Everyone

Digital Hearing Aid Costs 90%

Sreekant Cherukuri Board Certified Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor, and MDHearingAid Founder


Board-certified Ear, Nose, and Throat physician Dr. S. Cherukuri, a graduate of the prestigious University of Michigan School of Medicine, built a very successful practice helping patients with hearing problems. “I was often frustrated by the fact that many of my patients could benefit from the use of a hearing aid, but unfortunately couldn’t afford one. I then made it my mission to change this, making quality digital hearing aids affordable for anyone who needs one.”

It’s Nearly Invisible “I knew when I developed a new line of hearing aids that one of the most important requirements would be for the device to be hard for others to see,” said Dr. Cherukuri. “One of the biggest objections people have to wearing a hearing aid is that they are embarrassed. Our design helps people get past this concern.” Digital Hearing Aid Outperforms Competitors The new medical grade hearing aid is called MDHearingAid® AIR. It is sleek, lightweight, and full of the same advanced digital technology found in higher-priced devices, but at a small fraction of the price. “I couldn’t understand why everything in the digital world kept coming down in price, like computers, TVs, and DVD players, but not digital hearing aids,” Cherukuri said. Once the doctor started to realize his dream and was able to produce a device that costs 90% less, the industry was turned upside down.


90% LESS

Nearly Invisible!

Mini behind-the-ear hearing aid with thin tubing for a nearly invisible profile Advanced Noise Reduction to make speech clearer Feedback Cancellation eliminates whistling Wide Dynamic Range Compression makes soft sounds audible and loud sounds comfortable

Telecoil setting for usewith compatible phones, and looped environments like churches 3 Programs and Volume Dial accommodate most common types of hearing loss even in challenging listening environments

So How Does He Do It? Since 90% of people with hearing loss have similar needs, MDHearingAids were designed to meet those needs with user-adjustable features, avoiding the need for expensive customized hearing aids. This also makes it so easy for people to try the product, because no prescription is needed, even though it’s an FDA-Registered Medical-Grade digital hearing aid. With their 45 Risk-Free Trial, you can try it at home and if you’re not completely satisfied, just return it. It’s that simple. They even provide Free Shipping and Free Batteries.

Doctors & Buyers Agree, “AIR is the Best Digital Value!” “...This product is just as effective (if not more) than traditional overly-priced hearing aids.” – Dr. Chang “I have been wearing hearing aids for over 25 years and these are the best behind-the-ear aids I have tried.” – Gerald L. “ excellent quality-to-price ratio.” – J. May, MD “This is truly a miracle... I don’t even know how to begin thanking you for giving me my life back!” – Sherri H.

Southern California Challenge Walk MS is this weekend The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Pacific South Coast Chapter in San Diego will host its 15th annual Southern California Challenge Walk MS, a three-day, 50-mile walk, Nov. 4-6. About 250 people are expected to walk the route along San Diego’s coastline, from Carlsbad to Downtown San Diego. National MS Society officials said the walkers are expected to raise about $700,000 in donations for MS research and programs and services for people affected by MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. Walkers will include people living with MS, as well as friends and family members of people who have MS. The fundraiser will begin at the Flower Fields at 8 a.m. on Friday morning, Nov. 4, and will end around noontime on Sunday, Nov. 6 in Downtown San Diego.
