Chauncey Crandall is medicine doctor who advertised free consultation but when I was going to apply for that consultation I was asked to pay... What a nonsense, why a hell did he advertise free service??? If he is such a bad person I doubt he will be good doctor.

there is no link to the offer, making it impossible to understand the full context. without being able to understand the context, this is a useless bit of grousing.

then there's the problem of labeling the physician as a "bad person" when there is no way to know what the real issue was. in many cases, a credit card is requested even for freebies because the freebie is a sample that automatically converts into a paid subscription (or something like that). since there are usually opt-outs prior to having to actually start the paid portion, the free sample is, in fact, free. doing what the rest of the commercial world does fails to make someone a "bad person."

I have nothing to do with Crandall in any way - so my question is not tainted. If what he is providing has at least a modicum of credibility, wouldn't it be worth some amount to buy and read? So the newsletter may not be worth the annual subscription. How much is it worth? Fundamentally his sales pitch makes sense. I knew going into the pitch that it was not free (blessed with common sense, I guess!). Don't think of everybody as a crook. Getting all worked up over a few minutes or dollars (both of which are in your control) is not good for the heart.

First, I have to be skeptical of Crandall because his "advice" is simply a sales pitch. Is his priority disseminating health information to the public, or is it scoring another sale? The whole thing came off much more like the latter. Second, he openly associates himself with an outfit called "Newsmax" which specializes in highly partisan and easily disproved misinformation and disinformation. Probably best to steer clear of Crandall.

If Chandall had a honest passion to fight against heart disease, he would share his information freely, openly, concisely. Instead he packages a few sensible statements in an incredibly piece of sales crap, robbing his message from every trace of authenticity.

You're taking a chance with Chauncey. There is no way to totally prevent heart disease. An ongoing newsletter isn't necessary to explain it if there is. A few simple changes in lifestyle and diet could be explained in his "free book". Nothing more is needed. What is the purpose of an ongoing newsletter that costs $45 a year - forever? If he has a cure for heart disease he should make this available to peer review and have it dispersed around the world as a primary treatment for everyone thus eliminating the scourge of heart disease from the earth. This is a money making con similar to diet fads only more sinister as it involves your life.

Oh come on 'DirkR ! So you are saying that he shouldn't charge 45 bucks /yr? I tell you what, I own my own company. People hire me for my knowledge. Knowledge that they don't have. My customers don't hire me for my looks. They hire me for my knowledge. It's not about who I am but rather the fact that I know something that they don't but. I went to school for several years pursuing my degrees. And it wasn't free. It also cost money to own a business. Just like it cost's Dr.Chandall to be a doctor/surgeon. You're complaining because he doesn't make his subscription free? You must be one of those 'Occupiers' or at the least a very liberal person. You think that every thing should be free. What is the most important thing to everyone of us? It's our life! You can order a subscription of Sport's Illustrated for around $25.00. But you complain about $45 dollars for information that can save your life. I will never understand people like you. Get away from the computer and go get a Job!

He is already a well-known and respectable doctor, so why is he charging so much? $55 and $88 is a lot of money for a newsletter subscription. His "Free gift" is worth $15 at most. And a digital subscription should be even less expensive but he charges the same amount. This is very upsetting for many people who cannot afford this.

another doctor that doesnt know what hes talking about. exercise does not prevent heart attacks just look at all the distance runners with heart disease. saturated fats prevent heart attacks just look at people over 100 years ago that ate diets heavy in saturated f ats and never exercised a day in their life and never even heard of someone having a heart attack back then. statins do nothing but lower lab numbers and not plaque that causes heart disease. stents are a quick fix for the doc and not as messy or long as bypass that pays the doc the same money. stents attract plaque and create a smaller area for blood to flow. saturated fats raise hdl not exercise so forget the exercise that will only increase lung capacity not to mention you get all the calories back you just burned at the gym with the snack you make when you get home

@pumpup This is startling information - "saturated fats raise HDL". Is this your opinion or scientifically ascertained fact ? If it is your opinion, how did you arrive at this conclusion ? (deborahebrasher@yahoo.com)

Hey Pumpup, you have no back for the bull ### you just wrote. Cradall makes so much sense. Check out the book The China Study, the largest study on heart disease ever done. Wake up buddy!

this looks good, and I would do it, if it's 45$ for the year. It's not clear if it's for a year or per month.
