|The Media, Big Pharma, and the AMA|
If you failed the tests at the beginning of this article, you might wonder why the massive number of hours you have probably watched television and listened to the radio did not better prepare you to ace the tests.
Perhaps the next quote will help you understand:
"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
John Swinton (1829-1901) pre-eminent New York journalist & head of the editorial staff at the New York Times. Quoted one night around 1880. Swinton was the guest of honour at a banquet given him by the leaders of his craft. Someone who knew neither the press nor Swinton offered a toast to the independent press.
On any given year, Big Pharma pumps billions of dollars into the media companies for advertisements. Also, in any given year, not one penny is spent on advertising the Brandt Grape Cure because you can buy the necessary ingredients in a grocery store or a health food store. Likewise, you can buy necessary products at a grocery store to go on the Budwig diet (using walnuts instead of flaxseed oil) and many other alternative treatments for cancer.
In other words, there are many alternative treatments for cancer that will not provide Big Pharma a single penny of revenue, much less profits. This means these same treatments will not provide the media with a single penny of revenue. Guess which treatments the media pushes? In fact the Federal Trade Commission won't allow alternative cancer treatments to be advertised, because all of them are "unproven" (translation: not profitable to Big Pharma).
It has been known for over a hundred years that our American media are nothing but whores, who sell their opinions to the highest bidder. The highest bidder, by a colossal margin, is always orthodox medicine. This explains why you have heard thousands of things in the media in truth table #1 and truth table #2, and it explains why you have probably never heard anything in the media in truth table #3 and truth table #4.
The media never gives publicity to books or articles that criticize Big Pharma. For example, the media has said nothing about how the pharmaceutical industry has blocked such books as: Corporate Crime in the Pharmaceutical Industry, by Dr. John Braithwaite, The Drug Story, by Morris A. Bealle, House of Rockefeller, also by Morris A. Bealle, and others. Try to buy one of these books on Amazon!! These books are very critical of Big Pharma.
And the media says nothing good about alternative medicine. For example, if the media says nothing about a book, it is guaranteed to have a very small amount of sales. Thanks to the media, no one will ever hear about books such as: Cancer, Cause, Cure and Cover-Up, by Ron Gdanski, The Germ That Causes Cancer, by Doug A. Kaufmann, Choose Life or Death - The Reams Biological Theory of Ionization, by Carey A. Reams, and many others.
By not mentioning a book, they are essentially destroying any possibility anyone will know about it. On the other hand, with one media blast, millions of people can be deceived in a single half-hour. The channels of deception are wide-open, always waiting to deceive the public, millions at a time. Yet, truth has no voice in the mass media.
The end result of all of this is that you do not know the truth about either orthodox treatments for cancer or alternative treatments for cancer! Let me say that again: you do not know the truth about either orthodox treatments for cancer or alternative treatments for cancer.
There is a war going on in medicine today, a war between orthodox medicine and alternative medicine. The war is being fought with money and information. The war is to control what you know, and don't know, about cancer treatments. The war is to control whether you know the truth about all of your cancer treatment options.
What you hear about orthodox treatments for cancer on television, the radio, the big magazines, etc. is a maze of sophisticated layers of lies and deception. It is like putting make-up on a T-Rex. What I have talked about is only the tip of the iceberg. My point is to emphasize that during your life you have not heard the truth about alternative treatments for cancer, you have only heard what Big Pharma wants you to hear. What you have heard in the media is not based on a love of truth, it is based on a love of money.
If you trust the wrong side in this war, it could cost you your life or the life of your spouse or the life of some other person close to you! It is a war that leaves people dead who don't do their homework and thus end up trusting the wrong people.
Now let us talk about the massive group of corporations that pulls the strings of their many puppets, all for the sake of profit.
The Pharmaceutical Industry
While the pharmaceutical industry does provide many life-saving and quality of life drugs, their lust for money has taken them into areas they have no business being in. There are many health areas where natural substances are far superior to mutated, synthetic molecules. Mother Nature is a far better chemist than all of the pharmaceutical chemists combined -- and will be for the next ten thousand years!
But because pharmaceutical companies cannot patent natural substances, they cannot make much of a profit from natural substances, even if they sold them (which some pharmaceutical companies do). Thus, to make the huge profits needed to appease their stockholders, they revert to pushing the most profitable synthetic molecules they can pass off as useful. In other words, they make decisions of what products to sell based solely on how profitable they are.
They also fund much of the massive effort to suppress the truth about natural molecules.
But the stockholders and executives of Big Pharma are not the only ones who profit from the massive pharmaceutical money pie. Pharmacies are more than happy to sell chemotherapy drugs. Doctors are more than happy to use surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Hospitals are more than happy to house cancer patients and provide facilities to doctors. T.V. stations are more than happy to share in the pie. And many, many others share in the profits of this industry.
But it gets worse. The pharmaceutical industry has its hands in the pockets of Congress. Congress has protected the pharmaceutical industry via their creation and control of the FDA, NIH and NCI. In fact most government agencies were created to protect the profits of some large corporate industry which had power in Washington.
Corporations do not have police powers. So the way they get these police powers is to use their influence among corrupt politicians in Washington to create a government agency to, by proxy, exercise the police powers for the benefit of the corporations.
Congress is so concerned about protecting the profits of Big Pharma,, that in November, 2003 Congress handed a "corporate welfare" check to Big Pharma for scores of billions of dollars:
"The Medicare legislation that passed the House near dawn on Saturday and is moving toward a final vote in the Senate would steer at least $125 billion over the next decade in extra assistance to the health care industry and U.S. businesses ..."
Washington Post, November 24, 2003
Since when does Big Pharma need "extra assistance." The bill, by the way, forbids the government from negotiating lower drug prices. How often did you hear this fact emphasized in the media before the bill was passed? Congress has a long history of being far more interested in the health of big business than in the health of the American people.
Rep. Billy Tauzin, the Louisiana congressman who largely wrote the $540 billion prescription-drug bill for Big Pharma resigned from congress to accept a $2 million-a-year job in the drug industry.
Big Pharma not only makes billions of dollars in profits from chemotherapy drugs every year, which do nothing but treat the symptoms of cancer, they also make hundreds of millions of dollars in profits every year for making drugs to treat the symptoms of chemotherapy and radiation!
Lest you think Congress is a group of strong-minded people who are deeply concerned about what is best for you, consider this: aspartame (i.e. NutraSweet, Equal, etc.) is known to cause brain damage to unborn children (i.e. a fetus). The damage is manifest as autism, ADD, mental retardation, etc. (see my article for pregnant women on this web site for more information). Now consider this quote:
"Prompted by mounting safety concerns within the scientific community, Ohio Senator Howard Metzenbaum called for Senate hearings on NutraSweet. He introduced the Aspartame Safety Act of 1985 on August 1st of that year. The bill called for clinical studies to ascertain the safety of aspartame, a moratorium on the introduction of aspartame into new products until independent testing was complete, labeling of products including the amount of aspartame in each serving and the allowable daily intake, and a warning that aspartame is not intended for infant use. The bill also required the FDA to set up a clinical adverse reaction committee to collect reports of adverse effects and to send written notices to physicians about aspartame. In a March 3, 1986 news release, the Senator stated ‘we cannot use American’s children as guineas pigs to determine the 'safe' level of NutraSweet consumption.’ Sadly, the bill that potentially could have stopped an ongoing tragedy, was killed in the Labor and Human Resources Committee, and never reached the Senate floor."
See also: Metzenbaum H. Discussion of S.1557 (Aspartame Safety Act). Congressional Record-Senate August 1, 1985, p.S 10820.
Did you hear about that bill in the media?
As an example of Big Pharma controlled Big Government, Hydrazine Sulphate was being successfully used against cachexia. The NCI said they would "test" the product. They intentionally did not follow protocol and effectively murdered all of the patients in the study. By doing this they could say there was "no scientific evidence" the treatment worked and they were able to suppress this treatment for over 10 years.
"As a result of [the peer-reviewed studies that demonstrated the effectiveness of hydrazine sulphate], the U.S. National Cancer Institute - which had placed hydrazine sulfate on its 'unproven therapy' list - sponsored three scientific studies to assess the benefit of hydrazine sulfate. These studies, published in 1994, found no benefit from hydrazine sulfate treatment. However, a review of these studies revealed that 94% of study patients had also taken at least one [of] the medications which can block the effect of hydrazine sulfate. Proponents of hydrazine sulfate have concluded that the results of the N.C.I. sponsored studies are invalid, and that there is abundant published, peer-reviewed scientific studies attesting to its benefit."
Many books have been written that document the persecution of alternative cancer doctors who cured too many of their patients with inexpensive natural products. Of course, most people have never heard of these books because the media does not give them the free publicity they give their favored books.
The American Medical Association
The AMA is nothing more than a labor union for doctors. Their job, like all labor unions, is to maximize the profits of their members. But the AMA is a labor union with power because it controls who can "practice medicine." In other words, the many experts in alternative cancer treatments cannot "practice medicine" unless they are first trained and brainwashed in the use of pharmaceutical medicine. However, that is not the end of it. Not even an M.D. can "practice medicine" if he or she does not use "approved" procedures which are adequately profitable to Big Pharma and the other members of the AMA.
The relationship between Big Pharma and the AMA is a quid pro quo, roughly translated: "you scratch my back, I'll scratch your back." The AMA makes sure its members prescribe toxic substances to increase the profits of Big Pharma. Likewise, the AMA makes sure its members treat the symptoms of disease (instead of the causes of disease) to insure the patient is not made well too quickly and the profits of Big Pharma are not hindered by the treatment of the causes of disease.
On the other hand, Big Pharma never forgets that the AMA has power equal to the FDA. Big Pharma would never come up with drugs that would seriously jeopardize the profits of the hospitals and doctors. That is why every year more and more people die of cancer, in spite of the billions of dollars in cancer research.
What exactly are the AMA and Big Pharma looking for? They are not looking for cheaper and safer treatments, they are looking for more profitable treatments. Gene therapy, stem cell transplants, bone marrow transplants, ad nauseum, are what they are looking for. They are looking for things that will make doctors and Big Pharma richer, more powerful and more sophisticated in the eyes of the public. They are not looking for an improved Budwig Diet.
The objective, guiding light and controlling direction of orthodox medicine is profits and earnings per share, not on what is best for their patients, either in terms of "total life" or "quality of life." Until that paradigm changes, there will be never be a significant improvement in the orthodox cancer treatments that reach your doctor's office regardless of what discoveries are made.
When a new discovery is made, the only question that is asked is this: "is it profitable enough?" If the answer is 'no' the treatment is buried. Now perhaps you know why medical costs continue to skyrocket through the roof.
But it gets worse. This same concept applies to medical theory. The medical establishment, which not only controls which treatments doctors will use, also control what medical "theories" doctors will believe and apply!! They will pick the medical theories that deliver the most profits for Big Pharma and the AMA's doctors.
These absurd medical theories then control the research direction and research money. In other words, the lust for profits controls the research money. Perhaps the reader can understand why people like John D. Rockefeller, Sr. were so anxious to set up foundations to control the direction of medical research. Their "generous" contributions had nothing to do with any concern for humanity, they wanted to control medical research.
The AMA and medical schools make sure doctors are totally ignorant of the applications of medical theories such as: the body's electrical systems, the importance of pH/alkalinity, the danger of fungi, moulds, etc. in the blood, phytonutrients, glyconutrients, vitamins/antioxidants, electromagnetic treatments, oxygen treatments, chlorophyll, and so on. These are theories that are not profitable enough, yet they lead to far more effective treatments than the highly profitable orthodox "theory" and treatments!!
When a spectacular discovery is made, the FDA or AMA shuts the clinic or lab down, the media suppresses both the discovery and the shutting down of the clinic, etc. How is the discovery going to be distributed among the public? It won't be. Big Pharma and the AMA have blocked all channels of communication!!
Some of more well-known (to alternative medicine people) cancer researchers who were shut down, or were severely harassed, by the AMA (or its state or Canadian equivalent) are:
Harry Hoxsey (herbs),
Dr. Royal Ray Rife (microscope and electromagnetic microbe killer),
John Clark (did follow up to Royal Rife's research),
Dr. William F. Koch (synthetic antitoxins),
Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski (Antineoplastons),
Dr. Max Gerson (diet and supplements),
Lawrence Burton, PhD (Immuno-Augmentative Therapy),
Dr. Andrew C. Ivy (Krebiozen),
Gaston Naessens (microscope and 714-X homeopathic),
Dr. John A. Richardson (laetrile),
Dr. Philip E. Binzel, Jr. (laetrile).
There have been numerous medical doctors and other health practitioners who used nutrition and supplements to treat cancer who had far higher "total life" cure rates on terminal cancer patients than any current orthodox treatment!! But the direction of cancer "research" is not to improve these natural treatments and determine why they work so well, but the direction of research is to test "theories" that lead to more profitable treatments!!!
Here is a quote from the modern version of the Hippocratic Oath: "I will follow that method of treatment which according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patient and abstain from whatever is harmful or mischievous." Somehow, investment advisors seem to be the only ones who benefit from modern medicine.
Those rare doctors who take their oaths seriously are the ones who get into trouble with the AMA!!
