Prominent Doctor, Professor of Medicine on Hillary's Health

Prominent Doctor, Professor of Medicine on Hillary’s Health

by Stephen Lendman

Dr. Robert Lahita is Professor of Medicine at Rutgers University, chairman Newark Beth Israel Medical Center department of medicine, as well as author of 16 books and numerous publications relating to autoimmunity. He’s a reviewer for 15 medical journals, a board member on three of them.

He believes concerns about Hillary’s health aren’t conspiratorial, questioning her physical fitness to lead.

“This is a very unusual story with Hillary,” he said, noting two blood clots she was diagnosed with earlier, explaining:

“The fact that she’s having these clots and she’s had two bouts of thrombosis (clots obstructing blood flow) is disconcerting to say the least.”

Numerous past presidents had health issues, at times serious, concealed while campaigning and in office, said Lahita. In mid-August, I wrote about presidential illnesses, including Washington, Jefferson, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, JFK, Reagan and others.

They’re not rare, affecting the ability to govern. Lahita believes Clinton and Trump “should be very forthcoming and perhaps have an impartial panel of physicians review the data and make (a decision on their health condition) before” November’s elections.

Hillary was diagnosed with subcortical vascular dementia, resulting in occasional blackouts, seizures, twitching, confusion and memory loss, worsening over time - resulting from a December 2012 concussion.

Her condition impedes normal functioning. It’s potentially life-threatening. Media scoundrels ignore it.

Her deplorable history of wrongdoing should automatically disqualify her from seeking any public office. 

Poor health causing memory loss and a revealed State Department email from her close aide Huma Abedin, saying she’s “often confused” makes it more urgent.
