“Why Arnold Schwarzenegger Should Terminate Penn & Teller In A Celebrity Death Match…And What It Has To Do With YOU Living A Pain-Free Life!!!”
It never surprises me the lengths some people will go to for a few extra bucks. The worst thing is when someone is actually willing to manipulate the facts and jeopardize the health and well being of the general public simply for the almighty buck.
It’s A Disgrace
Take self-proclaimed professional “scam artists” Penn & Teller. On Jan. 31, 2003, the Showtime cable network aired the second episode of "Penn and Teller: "Bulls#%t!" The series, created by the comedy/magic team, is supposed to "expose the truth to an otherwise desperate and gullible public."
The purpose of the January 31st show was to save the “desperate and gullible” from the quackery of alternative medicine, and included a segment that took a direct shot at the Chiropractic profession.
According to Penn Jillette, the goal of the program is "to hunt down as many purveyors of B.S. as possible."
He started the Jan. 31st show by stating, "We're looking for B.S., and in alternative medicine, it's just a question of, 'Where do we start?'" then proceeded to ridicule three facets of alternative medicine: reflexology, magnet therapy and "Chiropractic medicine."
I’m not going to get into their discussion of reflexology and magnet therapy because it goes beyond the scope of this newsletter. But here’s what they had to say about Chiropractic:
They said Chiropractic theory "hasn't changed since one guy just started it, with no proof, in 1895." They continued their unsubstantiated bashing of Chiropractic saying, "It's just reflexology, but you substitute 'spine' for 'foot.' It's all the same kind of thinking - treating the human body like a voodoo doll."
As the show comes to a close, the Hollywood tricksters stood up with a bunch of ducks behind them and offered a warning to alternative healthcare providers: "As science moves ahead, most of these 'doctors' will have to get real jobs."
Then they walk around the table quacking like a duck. I’m surprised they actually think the “desperate and gullible” public…that needs their “expert” opinion on alternative healthcare…can figure out they are calling Chiropractors quacks by walking around and quacking like that.
I actually laughed at this “National Enquirer” quality program until a practice member recently told me a co-worker gave him a tape of the show after he told him he was coming to me and said he was crazy for going to one of those quacks.
I guess my mistake was thinking people get their healthcare advice from healthcare experts, not…

I could go on forever about the scientific evidence that substantiates Chiropractic. Plenty of it shows Chiropractic is more effective, costs less and is MUCH safer than the comparative medical treatments. I have already done that in several newsletters… and frankly…I don’t want to bore you by…
Beating A Dead Horse!
So instead of embarrassing those two clowns with boring facts and research I’m sure they already know, I’ve decided to prove my point in a much more interesting way. By having a…Celebrity Death Match!
Now just stay with me for a minute. This isn’t as crazy as it seems. And, it will be a lot of fun.
My first choice for an opponent was newly elected California Governor…the Terminator himself…Arnold Schwarzenegger!
Why Arnold? Well, I’m sure Arnold would be proud to jump in the ring and put a beating on these two fountains of misinformation. Just listen to what he has said about Chiropractic:
“It is truly one of the few professions that really helps people in a straightforward way with no monkey business, like some of the other professions promise to help, but this Chiropractic is the real thing. . ..Chiropractic is about natural, preventive healthcare. . . Whenever I have a problem -- or even if I don't have a problem -- and I go to a Chiropractor, my problems are gone for a long time.”
And Arnold also has said this:
"Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using Chiropractic very extensively in order to stay healthy and fit. I found it was better to go to a Chiropractor before you get injured. We are a perfect team- the world of fitness and the world of Chiropractors."
But, then I got to thinking. It really isn’t fair for me to choose who Penn and Teller should face in the death match. After all, I’ve got a list in front of me right now with…
Over 200 Celebrities, Professional Athletes And Musicians
Who’ve Chosen Chiropractic Care!!!
Maybe there’s someone you’d like to see kick their butts. I can’t possibly list them all here and give you all the quotes…so…I’m gonna narrow it down a little. Here are a few to choose from:
Lance Armstrong 7 Time Winner of the Tour de France
“I couldn’t have won without my chiropractor. He is possibly the most important man on the team.”
Evander Holyfield Heavyweight Boxing Champ
"I have to have an adjustment before I go into the ring. I do believe In Chiropractic. I found that going to a Chiropractor three times a week helps my performance. The majority of boxers go to get that edge."
Joe Montana Professional Football All-Star
"I've been seeing a Chiropractor and he's really been helping me out a lot. Chiropractic's been a big part of my game."
Emmitt Smith Professional Football All-Star
"I go see Dr. Bill (Chiropractor) when I get bent out of shape on Sundays. Playing in a football game is like being in 30-40 car accidents."
Dan O'Brien 1996 Olympic Decathlon Gold Medallist
"You obviously can't compete at your fullest if you're not in alignment. And your body can't heal if your back is not in alignment. It was the holistic idea that I liked about Chiropractic and that is what track and field is about. Every track and field athlete that I have ever met has seen a Chiropractor at one time or another. In track and field, it is absolutely essential. Chiropractic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted."
Jose Canseco Professional Baseball All-Star
"I've found that it's a great stress reliever to get adjusted. It takes away a lot of the tightness in the muscles"
Wade Boggs Professional Baseball All-Star
"Last year I found Dr. Newman (Chiropractor), and I have been seeing him ever since. I have been pain-free and feeling terrific. I swear by it. Now, it is just maintenance and keeping in line so the nerves don't touch."
And, Let’s Not Forget Other Chiropractic Practice Members Such As:
Michael Jordan, Muhammed Ali, Mel Gibson, Sylvester Stallone, Denzel Washington, Richard Gere, Demi Moore, Cher, Jerry Seinfeld, Clint Eastwood, Madonna, Tiger Woods, and the list goes on and on and on!!!
I think you get the point. I’m not really looking for a death match. Just setting the record straight. All these celebrities and athletes have the ability to choose the best healthcare money can buy…and they choose Chiropractic. So, who’s lead are you gonna follow: The People on this list… or…a couple of self-proclaimed “scam artists?”
