Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 21, 2009
In the May-June 2009 issue of the prestigious Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics, an international journal integrating experimental, clinical, and social studies on aging published by Elsevier, Prof. Dr. Imre Zs.-Nagy, of the University of Debrecen Medical and Health Science Center (Hungary), and founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics, "speaks the truth regarding fundamental differences of opinion among the spectrum of scientists involved in the anti-aging medical interventions." His intrepid Expose reveals a decade-long calculated campaign of deceit, fraud, and suppression by the gerontological elite, which has threatened physician licensures and liberties to treat and prescribe life-improving therapies, leading potentially to the direct compromise of patients' health and longevity.
Stating that: "In my role as a basic and clinical scientist, I have had an opportunity to witness more than four decades of advances and declines in the arena of preventive medical care," Dr. Zs.-Nagy "submit[s] that there has been little else as dramatic, important, beneficial, and significant as the anti-aging medical movement. It is shameful that skeptics have made repeated, calculated attempts to discredit the science and substance of anti-aging medicine. Despite these failed campaigns, anti-aging medicine has flourished in its sixteen-year long history, garnering the support of more than 100,000 physicians and scientists worldwide who practice or research life enhancing, life extending interventions."
Prof. Dr. Zs.-Nagy's profile of the sharp and protracted conflict of views between the gerontological establishment and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) is, in fact, a thorough and fact-filled Expose on what he refers to as "disregard by certain individuals bearing some of the most prestigious affiliations in the gerontological establishment, for truth, academic integrity, and scientific professionalism." Dr. Zs.-Nagy explains that: "[T]he gerontological elite has … sought to obfuscate the facts of the anti-aging medical movement. I submit that the reason for this is nothing less than an abject fear by the gerontological elite to avert their loss of control, power, prestige, and position in the multi-billion dollar industry of gerontological medicine. "
Dr. Zs.-Nagy expresses his opinions on the use of the hGH as an anti-aging medical intervention. The Editorial attempts to point out the main clinical results of hGH replacement therapy (hGHRT) in light of the "Membrane Hypothesis of Aging" (MHA), which Dr. Zs.-Nagy submits as offering a solid basis for the interpretation of the observed beneficial effects of hGH. Dr. Zs.-Nagy proposes an independent, open-minded approach to the fundamental differences of opinion regarding anti-aging medical interventions, and encourages readers to: "join me in condemning those who violate the principles of science and clinical responsibility, and their obligations to both peers and the public at-large. By doing so, I submit the framework is set to reconcile fundamental differences of opinion and achieve the realistic goal of a consensus in aging intervention."
Prof. Dr. Imre Zs.-Nagy was born in 1936 in Hungary, and received his MD degree from the University Medical School of Debrecen (DOTE) in Hungary in 1961, with the Award, Sub Auspiciis Rei Publicae Popularis. In 1985, he became founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics. In his career spanning four decades, Dr. Zs.-Nagy has published 278 scientific papers, several book chapters and books, and presented 355 scientific lectures.
Dr. Robert Goldman, MD, PhD, DO, FAASP, World Chairman of the International Medical Commission, which oversees sports medicine committees in over 184 nations, and Chairman of the World Anti-Aging Academy of Medicine (WAAAM: http://www.waaam.net), comments that: "This important and timely Editorial by Prof. Dr. Imre Zs.-Nagy brings to light the deliberate and false portrayal of fundamental principles of endocrinological medicine, which, to my observation, deliberately manipulated the US legal system to falsely prosecute doctors under laws and regulations that were never intended to restrict the physician's freedom of choice. The gerontological establishment has, in fact, transformed the judicious use of HGH replacement therapy (hGHRT) for appropriate patients into a political weapon."
Dr. Ronald Klatz, MD, DO, President of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M; http://www.worldhealth.net), observes that: "A decade-long campaign waged by the geontological elite has severely restricted the freedoms of physicians to administer life enhancing, and potentially life saving, therapeutics such as hGH and HRT therapies. It has taken over ten years for the truth to be told through this Expose, which catalogs an unjustified and unnecessary attack on anti-aging medicine." Dr. Klatz continues that: "The effect of this calculated campaign by the gerontological elite has held back the advancement of clinical anti-aging and HRT research since 1997, leading to unnecessary morbidity, and, likely - mortality, for millions of people worldwide. In my opinion, this is a heinous crime against humanity. The A4M remains committed to defending the independent physician and we applaud Prof. Dr. Imre Zs.-Nagy for his courage and fearless commitment to intellectual and academic honesty."
