Who do you believe? Follow The Money Trail

When I was first researching cancer, I ran into both kinds of web sites, the sites controlled by orthodox medicine and the sites controlled by alternative medicine. The quackwatch page (one of the orthodox sites) caused me to wonder whether all of this alternative medicine stuff was a bunch of baloney. Even though I am an expert at Machiavellian tactics and logic, I didn’t know enough about the bogus scientific studies they were referring to to figure out what was going on.

Then I came across the book Alive and Well, by Dr. Binzel. After reading the first two chapters of this book the picture became very clear. I had seen this same pattern before when dealing with physics and energy (although different government agencies were involved). I saw how the Department of Energy was suppressing discovery after discovery which would lead to very cheap energy costs (especially gasoline costs). In the same way, the effort to fight alternative treatments for cancer is intentional, well organized, well funded and includes U.S. government agencies (e.g. FDA, NIH, NCI).

Most people in America would never consider taking alternative treatments for cancer. This is because the orthodox medical establishment has total control over everything a typical person hears in their life. Unless a person is an expert at internet research (and quite frankly that wouldn’t do any good unless they knew what to look for), or they happened to run into someone who knows what is going on (and if they did they would probably consider them to be whack-o because they have been so efficiently brainwashed), they will never know the truth about anything.

I should mention how the establishment crushed the Linus Pauling heart disease prevention program. They didn’t say anything about it in the media, good or bad (i.e. they blacklisted it), and eventually the truth simply died out. That was all it took. There are many “blacklisted” organizations and truths that are forbidden to be uttered by the media.

There is no “freedom of speech” in America because only one “side” is allowed to speak on television or radio because they own the stations. The Constitution was written before radio and television were invented so no provision was made in the Constitution to force the mass media to present both side of the issues.

As a second example of blacklisting, when was the last time you heard a member of the “John Birch Society” talk for five minutes or more on the television (both Binzel and G. Edward Griffin belong or belonged to the JBS, and others)? Most people under 40 have never heard of the John Birch Society. I mention these things because these are just two of many examples of how potent blacklisting is, and more importantly, how overwhelming what you know is controlled totally by large, corrupt corporations that advertise. The owners of virtually all television stations, large and small, are also large corporations.

I should mention that General Electric, which owns NBC, manufactures medical equipment. GE Medical Systems manufactures very expensive equipment used by both cancer doctors and heart disease doctors:

In addition to its industrial holdings, General Electric owns NBC which controls the following assets:

  • 9 television stations including ones in New York, Los Angeles and Washington DC
  • 25% of more of the following cable channels: CNBC, CourtTV, Bravo, MSNBC, A&E, the History Channel
  • Plus these key news programs:
  • The Today Show
  • Meet the Press
  • Dateline NBC
  • NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw”

Now do you understand why you have never hear anything positive about alternative treatments for cancer or alternative heart disease prevention programs?

It is all about money, not people. Follow the pharmaceutical industry money trail and you will know with perfect certainty who is on their side. If someone that receives Big Pharma money says anything truthful about alternative medicine, the money dries up immediately.

Summary

This book can be summarized in several bullet points:

      • Since the 1920s medical progress in curing cancer has come to a virtual dead end. The reason: surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments are so, so profitable for pharmaceutical companies, chemical companies, petroleum companies, doctors, hospitals, medical equipment makers, charities, media companies, and many other industries.
      • The most important concept in chemotherapy is the concept of “remission.” However, remission, response, tumor markers, etc. are terms that are meaningless. They are supposed to equate to “length of life since diagnosis,” but in fact there is no correlation between being in remission and “length of life since diagnosis.”
      • “Cure rates” are another deception tactic of orthodox medicine. Rather than use the logical concept of “length of life since diagnosis,” orthodox medicine uses a meaningless statistic based on the percentage of people who live for 5 years between diagnosis and death. This statistic is easily manipulated to make orthodox treatments look more and more effective. But the only thing that really improves is their ability to deceive.
      • Chemotherapy drugs are evaluated by the FDA based on tumor size reduction and other irrelevant measurements, not on the basis of extending the life of the patient compared to a person not taking orthodox treatments. When they talk about extending a person’s life, it is based on comparing one or more toxic poisons to another group of toxic poisons.
      • In most cases a person would live longer, and have a far higher quality of life, if they took no orthodox treatments for cancer.
      • Chemotherapy generally does far more harm to a patient than good. It destroys the immune system, making it more difficult for some alternative treatments to work, loses valuable time for the patient to take more effective treatments, causes people to die of complications directly and indirectly from chemotherapy, causes enormous pain and sickness, etc. Chemotherapy is virtually worthless, but it is very profitable.
      • The uselessness of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation is hidden behind a maze of very sophisticated false and misleading statistics, misleading definitions, meaningless concepts and many other techniques. Above all, there is a complete failure to compare chemotherapy to the statistics of people who refuse orthodox treatments and there is an intentional failure to meaningfully compare the Big 3 to alternative treatments.
      • Cancer research today is largely a fraud. If only a small percentage of research money were spent on studying alternative treatments, known to work, cancer would be a sad footnote in history books within 10 years. (Note: It is absolutely critical that alternative health zealots control that research and money or it will be just another scam.)
      • In comparing Vitamin C, and perhaps by taking a few other vitamins and minerals with Vitamin C, patients who avoid orthodox treatments would live several times longer than similar patients who took orthodox treatments. They would have a far better immune system, have far less pain (zero pain from the treatment), feel better and have a much higher quality of life. In other words, Vitamin C therapy is far superior to the Big 3.
      • Yet Vitamin C therapy, even with the Hoffer nutrients added, is not one of the “top 100″ alternative treatments for cancer. It’s cure rate is far too low to make that list.
      • Bogus scientific studies have been commissioned by the NIH specifically to discredit valid studies and the testimonies of tens of thousands of patients cured of cancer with alternative treatments.
      • The media are nothing but worthless whores. They sell-out to the highest bidder, which is always the corrupt pharmaceutical industry. Everything they say is aimed to please those that pay the most.
      • The media has many different techniques they routinely use to brainwash the general public. They can all be summarized in two words: “whited sepulcher.” They lie, withhold information, deceive you, tell half-truths, and so on.
      • The job of the FDA, NIH and NCI is to suppress the truth about alternative treatments for cancer. Their number one job is to insure there is “no scientific evidence” for alternative treatments so that alternative treatments can be legally suppressed. They are corrupt to the core and are directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans every year.
      • The reason for the FDA, etc. suppressing the truth of alternative medicine is so they can continue to suppress the availability of alternative medicine substances and so the AMA can suppress the availability of patients to get alternative treatments from medical doctors.
      • Congress, whose job is to protect Americans and eliminate the corruption in Government, are largely inept and could easily be accused of intentionally “looking the other way” at what the FDA is doing, just as they have been “looking the other way” at what the tobacco industry has been doing for over 70 years.
      • Not only does the media provide a lot of misinformation, but the internet also has an enormous amount of misinformation about alternative treatments. Universities frequently pass on this bogus information.
      • The scientific evidence for alternative treatments for cancer is overwhelmingly superior to the scientific treatments for orthodox medicine. For those who understand statistics, the difference is greater than 1,000 standard deviations in some comparisons. Alternative treatments are so good, many thousands of people cure their own cancer without any medical help.
      • The primary way the medical establishment tries to suppress the tens of thousands of testimonials of people cured of their cancer by alternative medicine (most of them were sent home to die by orthodox medicine before they started alternative treatments) is to talk about “spontaneous remission.” The joint concepts of “spontaneous remission” and “psychological remission” are statistical nonsense and are nothing more than overt lies.

In short, American’s have been sold a “Bill of Goods.” Alternative treatments work, but they are suppressed. Orthodox treatments don’t work, but by using sophisticated statistics, clever definitions, etc. it appears to the public that they do work.

I have called this a “war.” When people hear the term “war,” they think of guns, tanks, jet airplanes and soldiers. They think about mindless tyrants shaking their fists on television.

But the war in medicine is very different. The tyrants in this war hide their real intentions. This is a “war” where the weapons are information. The American people know exactly half of all truth, the half that is most profitable.

A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.
