GOVERNMENT AND MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT IGNORING ANCIENT HEALING METHODS FOR HIGH PROFIT HOSPITAL THIEVERY! KNIVES AND PILLS
NAKED PROFITEERING BY DOCTORS. TOP DOLLAR FOR TOP IGNORANCE!
Just how USELESS are Pharm corps, Doctors, hospitals and med laboratories? As they will dry up your bank account, they're USEFUL only to themselves. How bad is the current medical establishment? Here we present the theories we call "Fatal Flaw -- Death by Propaganda" As you read it, realize that the medical establishment is not only lopsidedly ignorant but tyrannical about keeping the system LIKE THEM. Keep in mind that Codex Alimentarious is doing its utmost to stop us looking after our own health. The headlines tell it all. One day they're announcing how great a drug is, and the next thing you know, they're saying it's not so great after all. In this world of mass media and constantly-changing health information, people are confused about the paradoxical health information they're getting, and they're fed up.
It's gotten so bad that the North Carolina Time-News says a growing number of cynical patients are refusing to take their medicine. But is that such a bad thing?
Prescribing Endless lab tests and Drugs is just what Doctors Do During your last appointment with a physician of any sort, specialist or primary care, what happened? Mine sent me out on six thousand bucks worth of combined visits to her, lab tests and and finally told me nothing was wrong. I was fine. Cut back on sugar to get Glucose down from 114 to 100. End of story. SIX GRAND billed to the government, taxpayers, the SYSTEM for NOTHING. CT SCANS FOR NO REASON!!
a.. Did you have a chat about diet, exercise, nutrition, eating plans, or stress management? b.. Were you cautioned not to consume too much refined sugar or flour? Warned about gluten in wheat being a common cause of disease? c.. Were you given advice on natural supplements or lifestyle changes that can help you achieve optimal health? Or did the entire appointment simply address the symptoms you came in with or a screening for an illness you might have? And did it end with the doctor
giving you a prescription?
Unless your physician specializes in nutrition or holistic medicine, the
prescription was probably the main focus of your appointment. That's
because treating symptoms and diseases --- and prescribing drugs for
them --- is what modern doctors do.
I know this because I was a physician who used to do just that.
Literally thousands of my patients walked out of every appointment with
me with a drug prescription in hand, before I learned how to effectively
use natural life style modifications that I review in my book, Take
Control of Your Health.
But don't just take my word for it.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) describes doctors' jobs on its
website. And what the BLS says doctors "do" is diagnosis illnesses and
prescribe treatments. It also mentions counseling patients on such
things as diet, hygiene, and preventive health care --- but when was the
last time your doctor did that?
Why Don't Doctors Spend More Time on Preventive Care? A 1984 survey of
primary care physicians in New York found that 87 percent agreed that
they should add preventive medicine in the form of health promotion and
disease prevention to their patient care.
There were three reasons they didn't:
a.. Lack of time
b.. Inadequate reimbursement by insurance
c.. An unclear idea of how to define preventive medicine, or what kinds
of preventive recommendations they should make. The study concluded that
physicians need more training and education in disease prevention and
d. Fear of being shunned, messed upon, sued, censured or deshingled by higher monkies in the tree of the Establishment (poster's addition)
Nearly 30 years later, it appears that nothing's changed. With an
average of 15 minutes (if you're lucky) scheduled per patient,
physicians still don't have time for much of anything but writing
prescriptions and ordering tests. They're still limited to insurance
incentives that pay for tests and treatments rather than disease
prevention counseling. And they still are unable to define preventive
care properly, because whether it's the Department of Health and Human
Services or health care analysts, preventive care is still considered
screening for diseases, rather than teaching patients how to prevent
Granted, med students now have an option of adding a year or two to
their 12 to 16 years of college by enrolling in a residency specializing
in preventive medicine. But unless they specialize in holistic or
alternative health care when they get through with their education, they
still have to practice within the conventional paradigm.
Where Do Doctors Get Their Information From? So in the absence of time,
money and preventive care recommendations, what doctors still do best is
prescribe drugs --- to the tune of an expected $880 billion in sales,
worldwide in 2011. And where do you suppose they get the information to
do all that prescribing?
Mostly, from the drug companies themselves.
That's right. Your doctor relies on drug company sales representatives
--- who work on commission--- for information about what a drug is used
for and what its adverse reactions might be.
The obvious problem with this is that when you're working on commission,
you don't have a lot of incentive to kill sales with information on
little things like side effects or disclosures that the only difference
between the product you're selling and an old one is that the new one's
got a higher price tag.
The fatal flaw with this system is two-fold. First, it assumes that
physicians will take the time to read all the prescribing information
about a drug before they give it to their patients. Second, it presumes
that he will also keep up with any subsequent information, good or bad,
that might come out about the drug later. Aside from wondering how many
doctors actually have time to read all the fine print accompanying a
drug, the more dangerous issue is that more and more clinical studies
validating the drugs your doctor prescribes are tainted by bias and
conflicting interests that sway product test results. For example, in
one study of 111 final applications for approval:
a.. 42 percent lacked adequately randomized trials
b.. 40 percent had flawed testing of dosages
c.. 39 percent lacked evidence of clinical efficacy
d.. 49 percent raised concerns about serious adverse events
Recent information about Avandia and Avastin highlight how biased and
poor trials like this make it to market, according to Science Daily. But
they are not isolated incidents. Many drugs that tend to offer less
benefit and more harm to patients than the old stand-bys are making
their way to your doctors' prescription pads. One of the reasons for
this is because sales reps' salaries are tied to how many high-cost, new
drugs they can sell, thus making their Big Pharma bosses happy.
The drug industry's propaganda to sell these drugs are easily recognized
a.. Giving guidelines that have no proven end points for the drugs, but
imply that they are needed or could be useful b.. Exaggerating safety
and efficacy claims c.. Creating a disease out of something not
previously considered a disease d.. Encouraging off-label, unapproved
uses for their drugs Follow the Money --- If You Can Recent news has
been full of reports of physicians who accept speaking fees from
pharmaceutical companies and prescribe massive numbers of the drugs they
But the most scandalous investigation came from ProPublica, which showed
that hundreds of doctors on Big Pharma's speakers' payrolls --- the
peers your physicians trust to "educate" them at drug seminars --- had
been accused of professional misconduct, were disciplined by state
boards, or lacked credentials as researchers or specialists.
Granted, not all of the drug industry's propaganda promoters are in
professional trouble. Many have unblemished records, and take their
roles as teachers seriously. But how do you know whom to trust when
high-profile figures like ABC Medical News contributor Marie Savard fail
to disclose that drug companies pay them to say what they're saying?
Savard has been a Merck spokesperson for their HPV vaccine, Gardasil,
for at least five years, and accepted nearly $21,000 from Merck in 2009
alone (the first year speakers' compensation has been available). You
may remember when she appeared on the Oprah show in 2007, pushing
Gardasil and assuring parents it was safe. The one thing she didn't say
was that Merck paid her to say that.
When you consider that Savard sits on the University of Pennsylvania's
Board of Trustees, and that Merck has endowed UPenn's vaccinology
department with a $1.5 million chair, it's easy to follow the money and
understand where her loyalties lie --- and why.
But Savard isn't alone in conflicts of interest. The truth is medical
professionals are literally inundated on all sides with biased
information given by symposia presenters and public speakers with
conflicts of interest.
From nurse practitioners and physician assistants to medical students
and medical school faculty, to dental professionals and practicing
physicians who simply want to attend a continuing education class,
Pharma's got your doctors covered, teaching them everything the drug
industry wants them to know.
In other words, it's the best science money can buy --- with no end in
Fear and Hope: Pharma's High Stakes Mission With a record number of
block-buster drugs going off-patent and very few promising new ones in
the pipeline, Big Pharma is relying on an old stand-by to boost the
bottom line: fear of disease and hope for a cure with new uses for old
Nobody wants to be sick. But sickness is what keeps Pharma going.
Whether it's a pain medication, a vaccine, or a pill for erectile
dysfunction or acne, Pharma not only needs you to want their drugs, but
needs you to need them.This is where disease-mongering comes in --- in
other words, creating new diseases, inciting fear of the new diseases,
and then selling you the perfect fix. This is done through
Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) marketing. And it works.
From Viagra on NASCAR, to Gardasil screaming one less on TV, to actress
Sally Fields promoting Boniva, Big Pharma has made a science out of
making you think you need what they sell. Research shows that
prescription drugs promoted directly to you quickly become best-selling
drugs --- and celebrity names speed up the game. As a test to see just
how far this type of propaganda reaches, the New York Times picked two
websites to study and compare for the information they offer: the Mayo
Clinic and WebMD.They found that if you're looking for a pill or a new
disease or disorder for a symptom or feeling you have, Mayo Clinic's
cautious, health-promoting site may leave you hanging.
But WebMD gets right to the target with banner ads for a plethora of
drugs for whatever ails you --- as well as for things that COULD ail
you, once you figure out you need them. The drug pushing is so blatant
that the New York Times minced no words in describing it:
"WebMD is synonymous with Big Pharma Shilling. A February 2010
investigation into WebMD's relationship with drug maker Eli Lilly by
Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa confirmed the suspicions of longtime
WebMD users. With the site's (admitted) connections to pharmaceutical
and other companies, WebMD has become permeated with pseudomedicine and
Picking Profits over Patients = Death by Propaganda In 2004 it was
estimated that 57 million working-age adults were living with chronic
conditions such as diabetes, asthma, or depression. There's no question
that even when they have insurance, these adults have higher
out-of-pocket costs than well persons. Factor in major medical expenses,
and the toll is so high that economists have spent years suggesting ways
to reel these costs in.
The problem is that all of the cost-lowering ideas center on things like
cost-sharing and higher deductibles --- measures that are central to
President Obama's new health care law. Granted, these ideas spread total
health care costs over a broader group of people, thereby (hopefully)
lowering overall costs. But they do nothing to stem the root cause of
sickness and disease.
It's a paradoxical paradigm that just doesn't make sensee ---
unless the only way you profit is through
sickness, rather than wellness. You and I know that the real way
to stem disease and curb illness is to take
control of your own health before you get sick.
Awareness Gives You New Options
Generally used to control the outcome of group thinking, a
strategy called the Delphi Technique is oftentimes
used to discredit people like you and me. One Delphi Technique
used to suppress people who don't go
along with the program is name-calling.
It's a strategy that can work quite well, although it loses some
of its impact once you're aware of why it's
done. In her book, Death by Modern Medicine, Dr. Carolyn Dean
offers three counter-strategies to dampen
1.. Be charming, courteous and pleasant, and always keep smiling as you
stand your ground. 2.. Stay focused and don't allow name-calling or
ridicule to get you off-track. Instead, gently but firmly guide the
topic back to your original stance. 3.. Be persistent. Instead of
getting defensive when your doctor or a drug company tells you you're
nuts for wanting to try healthful eating and a better lifestyle instead
of pills to cure what ails you, guide the conversation right back to
your original plan --- healthful living for preventive care. The key is
to never, ever become angry as you pursue this goal, Dr. Dean says. They
say knowledge is power. So I encourage you to take this knowledge and
forge your own path toward better health, and to be one less death
caused by drug propaganda .
Stand firm, and vow to fight for your right to live a healthful, natural
If your doctor won't break the mold and help you with this, then maybe
it's time to find a new doctor.

You may remember Dr. Shiv Chopra from my interview with him in 2010, discussing some of the same subjects covered in his new book. He is truly an expert on these topics, having spent 18 years on vaccines and antibiotics for humans with Health Canada. But he also spent another 17 years in the Human Safety Evaluation of Drugs given to food-producing animals, with the Bureau of Veterinary Drugs.
He was eventually removed from his Veterinary Drugs post for "insubordination", a charge that he not only refutes, but is currently pursuing a wrongful dismissal suit in the Canadian legal system.
Dr. Chopra's First Battle: Vaccines
As a member of Canada's Food and Drug Directorate starting in 1969, Dr. Chopra had a seat on the governmental agency charged with protecting consumers against harmful drugs, and immediately he was pressured to approve vaccines that he objected to on scientific grounds. Despite his objections, after experts from the United States were brought in and "yelled and screamed" at his staff, the vaccines were approved.
According to Dr. Chopra:
"After 1967, after the thalidomide affair, there was going to be very rigorous health and safety standards for all drugs including vaccines in both the United States and Canada… Canada was ahead of the United States [in] that they started to consider vaccines as drugs.
The moment I joined…the first vaccines that landed on my desk were rubella and later on, mumps, and some later versions of measles. I objected to it. I said, 'I see problems in these because these are minor diseases and most people get immune by age 15. Why are we going to give these vaccines that have never been tested?'
I knew they were made in monkey kidney tissue and we have had problems with the polio vaccine…
… My suggestion was, why don't we test women at the age of 15 and 16? Those who are not yet immune then may be given the vaccine?
Of course, the companies didn't want that. They wanted 100 percent or at least 80 percent of the children vaccinated. That was the only way they were going to make money. So they flew in hordes of people from the United States -- of all people, Dr. Hilleman, you may remember him. He himself came. He was effectively yelling and screaming at my department that the United States has passed it and so forth. In any case, the vaccines were passed.
We now know from history that those vaccines have been used for more than 40 years and the diseases, all of them, are still here. Meanwhile, autism, diabetes, and all kinds of autoimmune diseases have increased.
We don't know what damage we're doing -- actually we know that in association with those vaccines, chronic diseases in children have increased. But nobody is paying attention. Everybody is denying that."
At the time of the Canadian approval of scientifically questionable vaccines, even government studies in the US questioned the effectiveness of vaccines.
But not only was no one listening to the arguments about vaccine efficacy, the medical community at that time, according to Dr. Chopra, was also in deep denial about the steep drop in infectious diseases before vaccines gained widespread usage:
"…Back in 1971, there was an investigation in the United States that influenza vaccines was not working and one man, Dr. Anthony Morris, a senior scientist, was fired. And then an investigation occurred and there was a congressional inquiry. They looked at 200 vaccines and they ruled that they were all useless vaccines.
Ironically, those vaccines have never been removed from the ledgers and DPT was never talked about. Again, medical people know, a lot of scientists know, the CDC, U.S. FDA, other departments, medical departments, medical professionals, they are all denying that all these infectious diseases had started to decrease in the early 1940s."
With this early battle over vaccines, Dr. Chopra witnessed the pattern that would become familiar during his tenure as a scientist at various governmental regulatory agencies. First, the findings of scientists would be neglected, overruled or ignored. Second, corporations would use their influence and money to bend governmental policy towards maximum corporate profits.
This model has dominated governmental health policy for the last 40 years, and has recently taken a turn for the worse. Today, the regulators are merely corporate insiders from the very industries they are assigned to regulate.
Just how Much Protection are Government "Regulators" Providing?
According to Dr. Chopra's 35 years of experience as a scientist fighting to protect the public health in Canada – not much!
Corrupt to the Core is a fascinating commentary on the entire system of drug approvals, and how the system originally designed to protect the public health, whether in the US or Canada, has been hopelessly corrupted by corporate money and corporate cronyism that views industry as the "client" instead of the public.
Again and again, we see this repeating pattern: when concerned scientists who really understand the issues voice their concerns, they're oftentimes fired or overruled by bureaucrats holding MBA's. According to Dr. Chopra:
"Non-technical people, accountants, lawyers, and MBAs and all kinds of people were appointed as our bosses; who didn't want to listen [to our scientific findings]. That was the style. MBAs can buy science and scientists don't know how to manage science. That was the trend. It all came out of Harvard -- the idea of how to manage scientific areas and health areas.
That is part of the corruption that began a long time ago. It was triggered out of the United States, particularly the Harvard model; everybody has to be an MBA. Doctors are sidelined, the scientists are sidelined, and engineers are sidelined... It will be those accountants and MBAs who will make the decisions."
Scientists are dismissed because they interfere with the collusion between government and these large multinational corporations whose primary intent is to increase their profits – not to serve the public health.
The Canadian system is perhaps even worse than the US, as Canada only performs paper verification and doesn't do any testing of their own on these products, which the US has the capacity to do.
Either way, the regulatory system we now have in the US and in Canada is a well greased, politically run operation where companies are NOT required to prove the safety and efficacy of their product in peer-reviewed scientific literature.
All they have to do is manipulate the regulatory authorities to approve their product, and they can then use that approval as proof and documentation -- rather than the actual science -- that their product is declared safe! Then they have plausible deniability for any health catastrophes that follow, since they can just blame the government for giving them approval.
If you think you deserve better protection than this from your government, then I encourage you to make your voice heard. As long as the masses stay silent on this subject, the systemic silencing of government scientists is guaranteed to continue.
Dr. Chopra's Second Battle: Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH)
In 1988, Dr. Chopra's plan was to transfer to the less contentious public policy branch of Veterinary Drugs in the Canadian government, where he might enjoy a few quiet years before retirement, but no sooner did he arrive when the application from Eli Lilly for rBGH in Canada's dairy cows landed on his desk.
So much for a few quiet years before retirement!
Dr. Chopra questioned the safety of rBGH and fought to keep it out of Canada's food supply. According to Dr. Chopra:
"My colleagues were saying, it's the same as natural. We don't need to ask any questions. The recommendation was "Just pass it." I said, "you can't pass it. You have to ask questions. It's genetically modified." They said, it's the same as the cow's own. I said, "It doesn't matter. Even if you took natural BST/BGH and you gave injections of it, it could harm the cow and ultimately it might come out in the milk, anything else may happen, people are going to drink that milk."
They kept on arguing. I said,"'Can you give insulin when it's not needed? No, you'll kill people if you give more than what is necessary." I used the same argument.
They said, 'What test can we do?' I said, 'Normal tests.' This is a growth hormone.
If you inject it in some animals, rats, we should find out whether it produces some other hormones. For instance, it could affect the pancreas. There could be more insulin. There could be more progesterone. There could be more thyroxin. This is a normal thing for a veterinarian to ask.
Veterinarians are effectively toxicologists.
Unlike medical people, we learn comparative medicine. So therefore, this is a way to compare and see what species do. The law is that every drug, any product that directly or indirectly gets into the human body must be tested in at least two species of animals, one of which must be non-rodent. It must also be tested in pregnant animals. Then it also must be tested to see whether it produces cancer by lifetime studies in rats and mice and so forth.
None of these studies have been done on the bovine growth hormone.
Anyway, the product sat there unapproved. And then we saw that when it was actually given to cows it produced double births in cows, and their hooves were elongated, the horns and joints were swollen. They said, don't worry about the cow, we're only concerned about the milk so don't worry about the cow's safety. But what about the human safety aspect of it?
This went on and on and ultimately, I had dug my heels in, my colleagues also did the same thing… [Then] pressure [for approval] came from the highest offices of the Canadian government, including the Prime Minister and the Privy Council, the highest offices."
So as rBGH neared regulatory approval despite the scientific concern, Dr. Chopra and his colleagues took their argument directly to the public:
"We couldn't do anything about it, so we filed complaints. Because we filed the complaints through our union, it became public. When it became public, the farmers of Canada, the public of Canada, they all were complaining about rBGH.
This now got their attention and I, with my colleagues, were hauled before the Canadian Senate. This is where the first spillage of information occurred before it became very public. Finally, rBGH was not approved in Canada. The U.S. approved it, where it is still approved. .
The U.S. is now the only major country where [rBGH] is approved. Mind you, a lot of people now object to it."
As I said earlier, which was proven by this Canadian example concerning rBGH, if the public stands up for their right to a safe food and drug supply and lets their collective voice be heard, then the system may be forced to stop the "business as usual" practice of subverting scientific concern over approving dangerous food and drugs.
According to Dr. Chopra, corruption is not only systemic in the regulatory process, it's also infected the judicial branch of government; and it's now threatening to infect all corners of the globe. And this corruption is leading to very real public health consequences.
In Dr. Chopra's words:
"[Recently] the United States Supreme Court said that if people get damaged, if the children get damaged due to vaccine, they can't sue either the government or the companies -- by what right?
Who is to decide to shove vaccines into people who don't want it?
Who decides what food they should eat, whether it's GMO or contaminated with all those toxic products: antibiotics, and GMO's and pesticides and slaughterhouse waste?
Seventy-six million people in the United States get food-borne infections every year. About 5000 people die. In Canada, 11 million people, 1/3 of the population every year gets acute food-borne disease. Nobody talks about chronic food-borne disease; diabetes, obesity, heart attacks. All those things that are happening and nobody seems to care.
…Corruption is now hitting us all over. Every country is involved in this.
The U.S. has passed this bill, 510. Canada has passed a similar bill. India is passing a similar bill. They are even saying that if you criticize a government approved product without your own proof, you go to jail."
