Giuliani’s mind could be affected by the multiple Lupron shots he got for prostate cancer in 2000

CLEVELAND, OH – During his time as New York’s mayor in 2000, attorney Rudy Giuliani was diagnosed with prostate cancer.  In an interview about the disease the public figure shared that part of his Androgen Deprivation Treatment included shots of Lupron to take his body’s production of cancer-fueling testosterone to zero.  

The testosterone-blocking drug was patented in 1973 and approved for use in the U.S. in 1985.  It’s a synthetic hormone that comes with side effects that add to a cancer patient’s co-morbidities.   Among them in men are effects that effeminize the body with extra fat in the stomach, around the hips and breast growth.   

Lupron, Eladil and the other testosterone-blocking drugs induces menopause in men; as well as creating high blood sugar and the potential for stroke.  The term “memory loss” is associated with it; but the use of those two words to describe the side effect do no justice to how much the drug affects a man’s mind. 

In the July 3, 2019 Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA),  University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine Research Associate Professor Ravishankar Jayadevappa concluded that deprivation therapy exposure was associated with subsequent diagnosis of Alzheimer disease or dementia over a follow-up period of at least 10 years.  The team’s research examined 154,089 men and is the largest study of its type to specifically study the correlation between ADT and its effect on a man’s mind.

Dr. Ravishankar Jayadevappa’s conclusive discovery that Lupron and other testosterone-blocking drugs cause dementia and Alzheimer’s provides men with the most important information they need in their treatment decisions and strategies.

Professor Jayadevappa’s team warned doctors injecting this shit in men to “carefully weigh the long-term risks and benefits of exposure to androgen deprivation therapy in patients with a prolonged life-expectancies.” 

Dr. Stan Winokur interviewed Giuliani in 2006 to discuss life after his cancer was treated.  In the interview Giuliani shared that he’d been treated with Lupron to shrink his prostate before his urologist, Dr. Alex Kirshenbaum, scheduled him for radiation seeds and external radiation.   Giuliani told Winokur he’d made a mistake and should have scaled back on his treatment options. 

What the former New York mayor didn’t know at the time was that prostate cancer, no matter how high the PSA or Prostate Specific Antigen goes, does not spread outside the prostate in 90 percent of men; or that zinc deficiency is connected to 173 cancers.  Giuiliani, who acknowledged he was in better health before the treatment, told Winokur he would not recommend his treatment strategy to other men. 

Non-New Yorkers who don’t follow the city’s media may be unaware that issues about Giuliani’s mental capacity have been publicly-raised since his prostate cancer diagnosis.  Some appear to imply he’s been diminished as they’ve observed characteristics that were not initially associated with his treatment’s side effects. 

Giuilani’s registered nurse-trained ex-wife raised the thought that her former husband wasn’t the same man during an interview with Tish Durkin of New York magazine last August 2018.  Durkin’s headline set sad tone for her “something’s different about Rudy” story.

Millions of men have been administered mind-robbing Lupron and other testosterone-blocking drugs, unnecessarily, to treatment prostate cancer that does not spread outside the prostate in 90 percent of men.

“The Giuliani’s Break Up and Rudy breaks down?  How Judi diagnoses her ex’s new “dissembling condition.”  Durkin’s lead sentence completes the thought that Rudy’s different.

“The man that he is now is absolutely not the man he was when I married him,” Durkin quotes Judith Giuliani as sharing with her.  But Durkin doesn’t finish.  Later in her story Durkin continues to gnaw around the edges that Giuliani’s really not mentally right as she asked if his screwing around with another woman led Judith to file for divorce.

Rudy Giuliani’s father died from prostate cancer and watching how he died created fear that resulted in his decision to be treated with Lupron, external radiation and radiation seeds he now regrets. The Lupron shots he was administered to shrink his prostate are now confirmed as causing dementia or Alzheimer’s in men as they grow older; and within 3 to 7 years if they are over 66.

If it wasn’t the cheating, Durkin wanted to know if it was aging, dementia, galloping halitosis; loss of faith, relevance, marbles … what?  According to Durkin, Judith’s answer was curt.

“For a variety of reasons that I know as a spouse and a nurse, he has become a different man.”

There is no doubt affirmation that Trump hired a long-time friend he trusted as a personal attorney who may be suffering the side effects of his prostate cancer treatment helps his defenders back him as he battles U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff’s House-unauthorized impeachment inquiry.


Eric Jonathan Brewer

Cleveland's most influential journalist and East Cleveland's most successful mayor is an East Saint Louis, Illinois native whose father led the city's petition drive in 1969 to elect the first black mayor in 1971. Eric is an old-school investigative reporter whose 40-year body of editorial work has been demonstrably effective. No local journalist is feared or respected more.

Trained in newspaper publishing by the legendary Call & Post Publisher William Otis Walker in 1978 when it was the nation's 5th largest Black-owned publication, Eric has published and edited 13 local, regional and statewide publications across Ohio. Adding to his publishing and reporting resume is Eric's career in government. Eric served as the city's highest paid part-time Special Assistant to ex-Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White. He served as Chief of Staff to ex-East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Onunwor; and Chief of Communications to the late George James in his capacity as the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's first Black executive director. Eric was appointed to serve as a member of the state's Financial Planning & Supervision Commission to guide the East Cleveland school district out of fiscal emergency and $20 million deficit. Former U.S. HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson told Eric in his D.C. office he was the only mayor in the nation simultaneously-managing a municipal block grant program. Eric wrote the city's $2.2 million Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant application. A HUD Inspector General audit of his management of the block grant program resulted in "zero" audit findings.

As a newspaper publisher, Eric has used his insider's detailed knowledge of government and his publications to lead the FBI and state prosecutors to investigations that resulted in criminal prosecutions of well-known elected officials in Ohio; and have helped realign Cleveland's political landscape with the defeat of candidates and issues he's exposed. Eric's stories led to the indictments of the late Governor George Voinovich's brother, Paul Voinovich of the V Group, and four associates. He asked the FBI to investigate the mayor he'd served as chief of staff for public corruption; and testified in three federal trials for the prosecution. He forced former Cuyahoga County Coroner Dr. Elizabeth Balraj to admit her investigations of police killings were fraudulent; and to issue notices to local police that her investigators would control police killing investigations. Eric's current work has resulted in Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo accepting the criminal complaint he guided an activist to file against 24 civil rights-violating police officers in the city he once led for operating without valid peace officer credentials. USA Today reporters picked up on Eric's police credentials reporting from his social media page and made it national.

Eric is the author of of his first book, "Fight Police License Plate Spying," which examines the FBI and local police misuse of the National Crime Information Center criminal records history database. An accomplished trumpet player and singer whose friendship with Duke Fakir of the Four Tops resulted in his singing the show's closing song, "Can't Help Myself": Curtis Sliwa of New York's Guardian Angels counts Eric among his founding chapter leaders from the early 1980's role as an Ohio organizer of over 300 volunteer crime fighters in Cleveland, Columbus and Youngstown, Ohio. For his work as a young man Eric was recognized by Cleveland's Urban League as it's 1983 Young Man of the Year.

Known in Cleveland for his encyclopedic knowledge of government and history, and intimately-connected with the region's players, every local major media outlet in Cleveland has picked up on one of Eric's stories since 1979. There is no mainstream newspaper, television or radio outlet in Cleveland that does not include an interview with Eric Jonathan Brewer in its archives over the past 40 years.
