[“It is an unfortunate fact that medicine is not motivated to search for truth. The forces behind it are those that promote, not healing and succor, but money and profit. Good health, after all, is bad for ‘business’.” – Dr. Jan Merta de Velehr]
(Silver Bulletin e-News Magazine) Truth is in today’s healthcare world the real quacks are those who cry quack the most. Did you know that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approves pharmaceutical medicines as safe if the risks outweigh the benefits, and the FDA accepts testing from the pharmaceutical companies to determine their safety? And the pharmaceutical companies pay the FDA a licensing fee for approval. In other words, the FDA makes money from approving medicines with tests that can be faked or skewed to minimize adverse effects and maximize positive results.
A former editor of the New England Medical Journal, Dr. Marcia Angell, has outspokenly asserted:It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines (…) largely because negative results are not published, positive results are repeatedly published in slightly different forms, and a positive spin is put on even negative results. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.Dr. Angell courageously covers her concerns in her book The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It. The whole approval racket is enmeshed in corruption beyond the FDA’s getting paid for approvals.For example, if a medical journal ignores any study reports that were negative and publish only the one that was favorable, they could receive anywhere from a half-million to a million dollars from the pharmaceutical company for reprints that will be sent directly to doctors’ offices, media outlets, and government officials.
A university study in Greece a few years ago determined that nearly half of published articles in scientific journals contained findings that were false because independent researchers couldn’t replicate them. Other studies that don’t get publicized enough, especially in the USA, corroborate these claims.
Surgical interventions are sometimes necessary. But the whole disease spectrum is dominated by pharmaceutical companies or Big Pharma. Even before graduating from medical schools, Big Pharma becomes Big Brother to AMA (American Medical Association) approved physicians.
The Medical Mafia is at Home in the Land of Big Brother
I borrowed the term Medical Mafia from Canadian doctor Guylaine Lanctot, MD, who wrote a book with that name to describe Big Pharma, the AMA, the FDA and others combined. That’s because they not only refuse to acknowledge safe natural approaches for preventing and healing disease, they attack them and vilify those who pioneer them, advocate them, or speak out against vaccines and other dangerous pharmaceuticals.
The Medical Mafia actually forces people recovering with so-called “alternative treatments” to die when their standard practices fail, as it closes down clinics and destroys honest practitioners who heal, sometimes forcing them to flee the country and establish their practice elsewhere, usually Mexico.
Most consider Mexico’s health freedom as part of that country’s corruption to allow “illicit” medical practices when the right officials are bribed. That’s not the case. Not all clinics in Mexico are staffed by medical tyranny refugees from the USA. Many are created by Mexican doctors who are not challenged from using other methods outside the Medical Mafia box.
An American MD practicing homeopathy and acupuncture in Mexico told me health freedom is written into their constitution. His charges were based on a sliding scale of income. Ask people who used a Mexican cancer clinic to actually recover completely from cancer without terrible side effects and you’ll be told how well they were treated and how much less expensive their treatments were.
Paul Fassa, Natural Health Journalist
Paul Fassa started looking into natural health to overcome his unhealthy lifestyle. Then he developed more interest as he researched his articles for Natural News and Align Life. He is amazed at the ignorance of natural medicine and how beneficial foods and herbs are constantly ignored or vilified in order to promote toxic foods and meds by Big Pharma, the FDA, USDA, and the AMA, what he likes to call the “Medical Mafia”.
