Today’s “health views” are that it’s impossible for individuals to have a healty life, unless they use products and interventions such as: drugs, surgery, vaccines, etc.
Modern health tells us that we are incomplete and broken and we need to be enhanced bio-technically.
The mantra of modern medicine: “A pill for an ill”.
Health industry is today one of the most profitable businesses in the world.
And where’s big money, big corruption is always present.
Disease = dis-ease = out of balance
Human beings are not biologically dependent on pharmaceutical products for survival.
Pharmaceutical companies are financially dependent on human beings for survival.
Birds born in a cage think flying is an illness.
People that never experienced total health think their sickness is what health is.
Medical science has made such tremendous progress that there is hardly a healthy human left.

Modern Medicine can’t survive without our faith, because Modern Medicine is neither an art or a science… It’s a religion.

… the greatest danger to your health is the doctor who practices Modern Medicine. I believe that Modern Medicine’s treatments for disease are seldom effective, and that they’re often more dangerous than the diseases they’re designed to treat…
I believe that more than 90% of Modern Medicine could disappear from the face of the earth-doctors, hospital, drugs, and equipment-and the effect on our health would be immediate and beneficial.

It’s not in the mainstream media yet, but the biggest jump in skin cancer has occurred since the advent of sunscreens. That kind of thing makes me happy. The fact that people, in pursuit of a superficial look of health, give themselves a fatal disease. I love it when ‘reasoning’ human beings think they have figured out how to beat something and it comes right back and kicks them in the nuts. God bless the law of unintended consequences. And the irony is impressive: Healthy people, trying to look healthier, make themselves sick. Good!

The first step is to give up the illusion that the primary purpose of modern medical research is to improve American’s health most effectively and efficiently.
In our opinion, the primary purpose of commercially funded clinical research is to maximize financial return on investment, not health.
– John Abramson, MD, Harvard Medical School
If your doctor prescribes you medication without first asking you at least about:
your water consumption
your exercise routine
the stress in your life
Then you don’t have a doctor, you have a drug dealer.
Time to assume that health research is fraudulent until proven otherwise?
Health research is based on trust. Health professionals and journal editors reading the results of a clinical trial assume that the trial happened and that the results were honestly reported.
But about 20% of the time, they would be wrong. Very few of these papers are retracted.
We have now reached a point where those doing systematic reviews must start by assuming that a study is fraudulent until they can have some evidence to the contrary.
Everybody gains from the publication game, concluded Roberts, apart from the patients who suffer from being given treatments based on fraudulent data.

Pfizer is a multi-time convicted felon
Pfizer was forced to pay out 75 million $$$ in fines for killing Nigerian children during an unauthorized test of a meningitis drug
Secret report surfaces showing that Pfizer was at fault in Nigerian drug tests
Published 2006 May 27
A secret Nigerian government report concluded that the drug manufacturer Pfizer undertook an “illegal trial of an unregistered drug” when the company enrolled nearly 100 Nigerian children with meningitis in a trial testing its antibiotic trovafloxacin (Trovan) against ceftriaxone during a 1996 meningitis epidemic.
Pfizer bribed nigerian officials in fatal drug trial, ex-employee claims
By Jim Edwards, Updated on: February 10, 2011
A former Pfizer (PFE) employee’s letter to a federal judge alleging that the company put a courier on a KLM flight to Nigeria carrying bribes for local officials is a classic example of how hard it is to get away with corporate skullduggery: The letter cites 40 Pfizer executives, FDA officials and other witnesses who allegedly have inside knowledge of the scandal – not very secret for a secret conspiracy.

Swiss executive agrees to plead guilty and serve U.S. jail time
Thursday, May 20, 1999
WASHINGTON, D.C. - A Swiss pharmaceutical giant, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd today agreed to plead guilty and pay a record $500 million criminal fine for leading a worldwide conspiracy to raise and fix prices and allocate market shares for certain vitamins sold in the United States and elsewhere, the Department of Justice announced.
A German firm, BASF Aktiengesellschaft, also will plead guilty and pay a $225 million fine for its role in the same antitrust conspiracy, the Department said.
The conspiracy lasted from January 1990 into February 1999 and affected the vitamins most commonly used as nutritional supplements or to enrich human food and animal feed – vitamins A, B2, B5, C, E, and Beta Carotene. Vitamin premixes, which are used to enrich breakfast cereals and numerous other processed foods were also affected by the conspiracy, the Department said.
15 Years later, where did all the cigarette money go?
Posted October 13, 2013
So far, the tobacco industry has paid more than $100 billion to state governments as part of a settlement. While smoking is down among young people and even adults in some areas, it’s still unclear where all that money has gone.
15 years after tobacco companies agreed to pay billions of dollars in fines in what is still the largest civil litigation settlement in U.S. history, it’s unclear how state governments are using much of that money.
The settlement left the tobacco industry immune from future state and federal suits, but the agreement said nothing about how states had to spend the money.
Hospitals lift curtain on prices, revealing giant swings in pricing by procedure
The eye-popping variations just demonstrate “the total insanity of American healthcare pricing” Niall Brennan, CEO of the payer-backed Health Care Cost Institute, said
The price to replace a hip or knee in the U.S. can vary dramatically, even within a single hospital, new data show
At a Sutter hospital in San Francisco, a procedure can range from $22,865 to $101,571. It all depends on the patient’s insurer.
In New York, a hip or knee replacement price may be anywhere between $14,202 to $45,387 at New York Health + Hospitals Elmhurst location in Queens
At University of Florida Health Shands in Gainesville, price ranges from $8,114 to $66,734
Statins, the most sold drugs in the world, are based on incomplete research
Published 2022-08-06 21:31
The famous American epidemiologist Ancel Keys published a paper about cholesterol from animal fat. Nowadays, it is a reluctantly accepted fact that this paper was based on research fraud. However, in the 1960s, he received support from the American Heart Association (AHA). This led us to believe that too much cholesterol in the blood is the cause of a sharply increasing number of myocardial infarctions. Other consequences:
We started believing that food containing cholesterol (such as animal fat and eggs) is a threat to our cardiac health
We started following the advice published in the official US dietary guidelines of 1977, which recommends us to reduce our intake of saturated fat (fat from animals) and increase our intake of unsaturated, especially polyunsaturated, fat and carbohydrates (sugar, flour and starch)
We became overweight and fat
All kinds of metabolic diseases, such as cardiovascular problems, diabetes, high blood pressure etc, have gradually increased to an alarmingly high level, and they are still increasing
The pharmaceutical industry has developed various cholesterol-lowering drugs
We are recommended by our doctors to start eating cholesterol-lowering pills for the rest of our lives
All studies published since the research fraud of Ancel Keys have been focused on cholesterol as the risk and the cause of plaque buildup on the inside of the arteries. So far, there are no published studies stating a damaged inside surface of the arteries as a possible cause of plaque buildup. There is no doubt that arterial plaque contains a lot of cholesterol. But does that automatically mean that cholesterol is the cause of plaque? At least, this seems to be the consensus. Nobody questioned it!
The knowledge system underpinning healthcare is not fit for purpose and must change
