One out of every three American adults take statins, and if you think that sounds like good news for statin manufacturers, you’re missing the bigger picture. All of Big Pharma benefits when people take statins. In fact, statins can really be thought of as gateway drugs. After all, they have so many side effects that you will likely end up taking several other medications after you start statins just to deal with them.
What can happen to you if you take these dangerous drugs? They suppress your body’s immune system, rendering it less able to fight off infections. They also inhibit production of coenzyme Q10, which helps to regulate your immune and nervous system and maintain a healthy heart and blood pressure. There’s also a higher risk of neurological diseases when you take statins, with many patients reporting forgetfulness, confusion and memory loss. But don’t worry – whatever happens to you, Big Pharma has a solution for that, too!
Statins also increase your risk of diabetes, so much so that the FDA has required that a warning label be placed on the package informing people of the link between statins, higher blood glucose levels and diabetes. The risk is especially heightened if you are an older woman. An Australian study found that elderly women who took high doses of statins had a 50 percent higher risk of developing diabetes. This could mean you’ll end up on diabetes medication for the rest of your life.
And for what benefit are you placing yourself at so much risk? According to research published in BMJ, taking statins over the course of two to five years adds just 3.2 days to a patient’s lifespan on average – if the side effects don’t kill them first. Yes, they’ve been approved by the FDA, but how many times has the FDA had to pull drugs after initially approving them as their dangers became too obvious to ignore?
If all this make you want to keep your distance from statins, you will be pleased to know there are some great alternatives. Dr. Jack Wolfson, a Phoenix-area holistic cardiologist, believes that a wellness model needs to be followed rather than a sickness one.
In an interview with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, he pointed out that cardiologists sometimes fall into the easy routine of blindly prescribing statins as Big Pharma tells them to and collecting a paycheck. After all, they’ve got medical school loans to pay off.
Dr. Wolfson asks why people would want to choose statins, which can reduce the risks associated with high cholesterol slightly yet put them at risk of many other problems, when they could take safe actions that bring their risks down to zero? He said that nobody says they feel better when they take statins and blood pressure medications. In contrast, those who turn to evidence-based supplements often report feeling great, losing weight, and having more energy.
Some of the alternatives he mentioned in the interview include beetroot powder, magnesium, and Omega 3. He says that we can make such a big difference in our health through food., and he also points out how powerful the sun can be in keeping us healthy. He also suggests that people get more physical activity, such as walking or gardening.
When your health is less than optimum, Dr. Wolfson says, your body is deficient in nutrients, not pharmaceuticals. Drugs might be good for emergencies, but when it comes to prevention, you can’t beat a healthy, well-rounded and nutritious diet, physical activity, and good old-fashioned sunshine. What do you have to lose by trying it?
Watch the full, shocking interview with Dr. Wolfson below.
Although my blog is mainly about addiction – especially iatrogenic addiction, it is also about iatrogenic disorders, diseases and death. Iatrogenic, for those of you who have never heard the term, is defined as ‘physician caused’. Iatrogenic addiction is now the #1 cause of preventable accidental death here in the US. My hope is that you take the article below seriously and make changes in your life accordingly. As thought of back in the day, these days are (unfortunately) days when doctors’ agendas have radically changed to be all about money – not your health.
Have you ever thought about the violation of human rights and medical ethics found in the vaccine industry’s pushing of mandatory vaccines for everyone? The fact that the industry wants to inject you and your children without disclosing the risks of vaccines — which include permanent, serious damage as well as death — demonstrates just how tyrannical and evil the vaccine industry has become.
Remember: When any institution demands government coerce you into being injected with a risky substance that is extremely well documented to cause brain damage, seizures, permanent paralyzation or death, you are living in what can only be called a “medical police state.” The fact that these vaccine tyrants pursue this medical tyranny under the guise of “public health” only mirrors the way Adolf Hitler committed mass genocide in the name of creating a “master race.” In fact, Hitler’s Germany openly practiced government-mandated euthanasia of the elderly, informed or physically disabled. It was part of the state’s call for eliminating “inferior” genetics in the name of achievement “for the public good” — the same logic now invoked by vaccine tyrants in the United States. Read, “Mandatory vaccinations are assaults with a deadly weapon.”
Because of the totalitarian tactics of the violent vaccine industry, more Americans than ever before are waking up and recognizing the tyranny that’s now at their front door (especially in California with SB 277, a vaccine mandate law that violates women). Resistance is growing by the day as moms and dads, scientists and activists join forces to oppose medical tyranny and restore health freedom / medical choice for all.
In just the last few days, an excellent article by Paul A. Philips, author of the website NewParadigm.ws, explained why informed consent is such a fundamental human right. That article makes such a compelling argument for informed consent that I’m republishing it here to share its wisdom with everyone.
by Paul A. Philips, NewParadigm.ws
In the modern-day, informed consent is one of the most pressing issues/concerns with regard to our health freedom. Informed consent is defined as having the right to make informed choices while knowing the risks involved when offered medical treatment. Further, whether it’s as a patient or a participating subject for medical research, individuals involved should not be coerced or criminalized for refusing the offered intervening medical treatment.
Informed consent was an established basic human right for our health freedom after a Doctors Trial in Nuremberg 1947. However, in recent times, there has been a disturbing growing trend where the medical ethical principle of informed consent has been violated.
There have been recent run-ins with parents refusing to have their children vaccinated, like the Michigan mom who received the threat of imprisonment. There has also been the threat of arrest: Take the case of a woman who was accosted by 2 law enforcement representatives at the school district of Claremont, California. She was interrogated by these law representatives (government goons) and threatened with arrest because her children weren’t vaccinated.
-This incident was related to the unconscionable SB277 law Introduced last year in California, demanding mandatory vaccination, which, in effect, has abolished the right to informed consent, denying parents medical choice for their children. Bear this in mind. How many more cases of this medical fascism is there to come? Not just California, this is part of a nationwide agenda and it won’t just stop at mandatory vaccination, but will go much further with other prohibitions.
Medical intervention through vaccination carries with it an uncalculated, undetermined risk: The vaccine introduced into the body of a healthy individual could cause serious injury or even death. -Which is why vaccination must always be a choice. For that matter, the same should apply to any medical intervention involving risk. Let your conscience be your guide.
The mass vaccination agenda comprises a ‘one size fits all’ medical intervention programme. It erroneously assumes that all humans are equal. It doesn’t take into account that humans across the many cultures and societies have different genetic compositions. While also as individuals, humans have a unique microbiome and epigenetic makeup through diet, lifestyle and environmental influences.
–All of which will make humans react differently to vaccines. Consequentially, some will develop severe adverse reactions to vaccines (or to other pharmaceuticals) when treated.
Indeed, followers of the alternative media will know that there has been much documentation to seriously challenge the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Then there’s the growing evidence to show that we’re better off without vaccines.
However, in spite of all this, the powers that be pushing the mass vaccination agenda see it from the utilitarianism point of view. Utilitarianism decrees expendability: It is based on the idea that in a cause for the ‘greater good’ the minority are expendable. Hence the vaccine meme ‘the benefits significantly outweigh the risks. ‘-Well, try telling that to a mother who just lost her child through a vaccine. Or to parents whose child has been crippled after a vaccination and can’t get damage compensation because the vaccine manufacturer, the pharmaceutical company is not legally obligated to pay out…
Whether a vaccine damages one in ten thousand or 1 in ten million children or a single child, that makes authorities morally obligated to not make vaccinations compulsory for all.
Thus, utilitarianism – the awful pseudo-ethic for “justifying” mass vaccination as public health law and policy needs to be banished. An empathy-based compassionate ethic should be applied instead: One that approaches public health law and policy that respects our right to autonomy, informed consent and health freedom.
To add to all this, there has been recent bombshell scientific evidence revealing the deployment of secret chemical weapons of mass sterilization through vaccines. In conjunction with the World Health Organization, evidence suggests that vaccines are being administered to young African women in Kenya to effectively cause a population reduction: Deceived into thinking it’s for their own good and without informed consent these women have no idea that they are being targeted for sterilization through accepting these vaccines containing sterilization chemicals.
After our federal government telling us for years that it’s for our own good, recent evidence reveals that adding fluoride to public water supplies causes a whole catalogue of health-damaging effects. This includes hypothyroidism; a hormone imbalance resulting in tiredness, fatigue, depression and obesity. It can also cause a number of cancers, skeletal fluoridosis and lowers IQ…
Not disclosing this information to the public or patients not only goes against the informed consent ethic but should also lead to holding a number of individuals criminally accountable for overseeing the adding of fluoride to public water supplies.
Smartmeters are installed in homes without informed consent: Home owners are not being told about the risks linked to the radiation coming from the smartmeters and how it can cause harm to the nervous system. -Yet another example to show the length and breath to which there is an absence of informed consent.
As already mentioned, in all cases, an empathy-based compassionate ethic should be applied where appropriate. One that approaches public health law and policy that respects our right to autonomy, informed consent and health freedom.

Calling it a “national shame” and “human tragedy,” President Trump on Thursday declared the opioid epidemic crippling American communities a “public health emergency” and pledged federal resources to help combat the growing problem.
“Addressing it will require all of our effort, and it will require us to confront the crisis in all of its real complexity,” Trump said during a speech in the East Room of the White House.
“As Americans, we cannot allow this to continue,” Trump said. “It is time to liberate our communities from the scourge. … We can be the generation that ends the opioid epidemic.”
Trump spoke to an audience at the White House that included family members of those affected by the opioid crisis, as well as several administration officials and elected leaders.
The president, who said “not one part of American society has been spared” from the crisis, stopped short of calling it a national emergency, something he previously promised he’d do. The announcement follows months of debate on how to tackle the problem.
‘We can be the generation that ends the opioid epidemic.’
Trump himself has gone on record more than once saying he would declare the crisis a national emergency. Such a designation would allow states to tap into the same federal funds typically reserved for natural disasters like hurricanes through the Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act.
Instead, Trump signed a presidential memo that directs acting Health and Human Services Secretary Eric Hargan to declare a public health emergency under the Public Health Services Act — which directs federal agencies to provide more grant money to combat the epidemic.
White House officials say the step helps cut through regulatory red tape and gives states more flexibility in how they use federal funds to fight the problem.
The designation will also allow changes such as expanded access to medical services in rural areas.
It doesn’t, however, create any additional funding.
The emergency declaration will last 90 days but can be renewed.
In 2015, 33,091 people died from opioid overdose, while 12.5 million people misused prescription opioids, according to the most recent statistics available from the Department of Health and Human Services.
The president on Thursday also revealed plans to take an “evil” opioid off the market immediately as well as the government’s intention to bring lawsuits against some of the drug makers, though he did not provide specifics. He also vowed to crack down on heroin imports from Mexico and fentanyl imports from China.
Pharmaceutical fentanyl is an opiate drug that’s up to 100 times more potent than morphine. In the past, drug dealers used it to spike the potency of the heroin they sold but traffickers are now selling fentanyl by itself.
Drug deaths involving fentanyl increased nearly 600 percent from 2014 to 2016, The Washington Post reported. There were 582 fatal overdoses linked to the synthetic drug in 2014. Last year, the number jumped to 3,946.
Trump also discussed the alcohol addiction that claimed his older brother Fred’s life in 1981.
“[Fred] had a problem with alcohol, and he would tell me, ‘Don’t drink, don’t drink,’” Trump said.
The president said watching his brother as well as other friends struggle with addiction is what set him on a no-drug, no-alcohol, no-cigarette path.
“There is nothing desirable about drugs,” Trump said. “They’re bad.”
Trump vowed to tackle the opioid crisis on the campaign trail, but critics claim his administration has been slow to act.
Trump created a presidential commission that in August recommended he declare the crisis a national emergency.
“Your declaration would empower your Cabinet to take bold steps and would force Congress to focus on funding and empowering the executive branch even further to deal with this loss of life,” the Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis wrote. “It would also awaken every American to this simple fact: If this scourge has not found you or your family yet, without bold action by everyone, it soon will.”
However, White House officials told reporters Thursday morning that a national emergency declaration was not necessary in the case of opioids.
The public health emergency will “reorient all of the federal government and executive branch resources toward focusing on providing relief to this urgent need.”
Past instances of public health emergencies include the H1N1 influenza outbreak in 2009.
Since the commission released its report, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has stepped down from his post while Trump’s pick for drug czar, Rep. Tom Marino, withdrew his nomination.
At an event at the Heritage Foundation earlier Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said it’s important to “reestablish the view that people should say no to drugs.”
“I do think this whole country needs to not be so lackadaisical about drugs,” he said. “Much of the addiction starts with marijuana. It is not a harmless drug.”
My comment on the above is that the addiction liability begins with Big Pharma and the doctors who prescribe them for anything else but to relieve extreme pain during the last days of life. At that time, they were being misused by doctors as well. I am a nurse who worked during those times. A doctor would verabally say to a nurse, “sleep him through”. That meant to overdose him with so much morphine so as to end life. No – I never honored those doctors’ orders because my job is to heal, not kill; however, most nurses did it. I believe God is the One to decide when one dies. So, throughout time, it’s the doctors who should be made to be accountable for their sins by holding them as murderers and drug dealers. Do you have an opinion on that?

The families of U.S. troops who have been killed or injured while fighting overseas in Iraq have filed a lawsuit against multiple U.S. and European pharmaceutical and medical supply companies after accusing the corporations of knowingly financing the Mahdi Army, an anti-American militia, through a series of bribes and kickbacks.
The lawsuit, which was filed against some of the biggest and most well-known names in the industry – including GE Healthcare, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Roche Holdings – claims that the corporations sent financial aid to Iraq’s Ministry of Health through their local agents. Allegedly, these funds were then used by officials at the ministry to assist the militia as they carried out attacks against U.S. troops in Iraq.
Needless to say, if the accusations made in the lawsuit really are true, then it would be one of the most egregious acts ever committed by pharmaceutical companies to date, and would even border on treason.
The money was sent in the form of “commissions” or “free goods,” and at times amounted to as much as 20 percent of the total value of a contract with ministry officials. In addition, the lawsuit alleges that the defendants included specific language in their contracts that promised Iraq’s Ministry of Health after-sales support and other services related to the product that was sold to them.
“In reality, such services were illusory and functioned merely to create a slush fund the local agents could use to pass on ‘commissions to corrupt (ministry) officials,’” the lawsuit states.
While the lawsuit claims that the money that was sent from these pharmaceutical companies to Iraq’s Ministry of Health violated the U.S. anti-terrorism act, Pfizer released a statement explaining that the company “categorically denies any wrongdoing.” In addition, GE said that they were “thoroughly reviewing the allegations,” and a spokeswoman for Roche declined to comment because the company had yet to be officially served with the lawsuit. AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson also refused to comment on the matter.
“Defendants did not intend for the ‘free goods’ provided to Kadima (health ministry’s pharmaceutical importing agency) to serve any legitimate charitable or medicinal purpose,” the lawsuit alleges. “It was widely understood in Iraq that MOH (Ministry of Health) operated more like a terrorist organization than a legitimate health entity, and no rational company would have viewed MOH as a suitable object for charity.”
Back in 2007, the global intelligence company Stratfor reported that U.S. led forces in Iraq had arrested the deputy health minister after he was accused of “selling health services and equipment in return for millions of dollars that he later funneled to Shiite militias.”
Unfortunately, this is hardly the first time that global brands have engaged in backdoor deals and shady transactions in exchange for special privileges from and relationships with politicians and lawmakers. In August, for example, Lee Jae-yong of Samsung was sentenced to five years in prison after it was revealed that he had paid almost $8 million in bribes to win over the support of South Korean President Park Geun-hye in the midst of ongoing corporate negotiations. In 2012, Walmart was accused of sending millions of dollars to the Mexican government in hopes of speeding up construction of their stores there, an issue that the company is still dealing with to this day.
Indeed, while these allegations against these pharmaceutical companies are certainly serious and warrant further investigation, it would be inaccurate to say that this sort of thing is rare and uncommon.
Attorneys working for law firms of Sparacino & Andreson and Kellogg, Hansen, Todd, Figel & Frederick stated that they have spent thousands of hours so far reviewing transactions that were made between the pharmaceutical companies in question and the Iraqi Ministry of Health between the years 2004 and 2013.
Ami Neiberger-Miller, whose 22-year-old brother was killed in a roadside bomb allegedly planted by the Mahdi Army in Baghdad back in 2007, explained that she wants the companies to be held accountable for providing them with financial aid. “I had always pictured my brother’s killers as faceless,” she said. “I wouldn’t have thought U.S. companies would have anything to do with his death. Those funds went directly from those companies to terrorists who had a mission to kill U.S. troops like my brother. They should be held accountable. Companies should know what is done in their name.” (Related: The US government admits that Agent Orange that was sprayed on GMO farms poisoned troops.)
Whether its U.S. corporations sending money to terrorists in Iraq, or even the disastrous and poorly run Department of Veterans Affairs, something needs to be done to improve the way veterans and military individuals are treated in this country. It’s sad, but far too often these brave men and women don’t receive the amount of respect and care that they deserve, and if U.S.-based pharmaceutical companies really did put our troops in danger for money, then it really is a sad day in America.
Medical schools are responding to the nationwide opioid epidemic by changing the way they train future doctors.
Over the past 15 years, many U.S. medical schools have begun offering lessons, courses and clinical rotations in drug addiction treatment and pain management, experts say, and some schools have added these topics to their required curriculum.
Faculty at schools that require all students to learn about addiction and pain say their goal is to ensure that graduates understand the differences between situations where an opioid prescription is an appropriate treatment for a pain condition and when it isn’t the best option.
Recent medical school graduates who received this training say it has helped them make decisions about whether to prescribe an opioid drug.
“I felt more comfortable and confident in myself, knowing not only when to say no but also when to say yes,” says Dr. Kevin O’Day, a 2016 graduate from the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine who is now an internal medicine resident at the university.
Regarding the lectures on addiction and pain he’s received as a student at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, Nadir Bilici said via email, “It has been useful to understand the challenges that patients with drug addiction face beyond receiving clinical treatment; we have learned how various socio-politico-economic factors go into making and breaking communities of addiction.”
Experts say that it’s important for aspiring doctors to learn how to avoid either overprescribing or underprescribing opioid medications, since this comes up in most areas of medicine, including surgery and primary care.
“Nobody wants the patient to suffer because their pain was undermanaged,” says Dr. Karen Sibert, an anesthesiologist and associate clinical professor with the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California—Los Angeles.
Sibert says most medical schools have bolstered the amount of training they provide on opioid alternatives, including intravenous versions of non-narcotic pain medicines and medical procedures that numb portions of the body where pain is present.
“They don’t look sick like someone with acute pain,” says Dr. Daniel Alford, professor of medicine at the Boston University School of Medicine. “When you have acute pain, your heart rate goes up, your blood pressure goes up, you look terrible, but with chronic pain, you can look like anyone else but you have this terrible chronic pain.”
Because there are not visible signs of chronic pain, Alford says, doctors are often skeptical of whether patients who claim to feel chronic pain are feeling pain at all.
Learning how to interview and counsel patients who express pain is a key skill to learn during medical school, experts say, and this can be cultivated through clinical simulations. Some of these simulations show students how to reject a request for an opioid prescription from someone who is misusing the drug.
“I don’t really think you can look for a specific course,” says Dr. Melissa Fischer, associate dean for undergraduate medical education at the University of Massachusetts. “Just because somebody has a pain management course doesn’t mean they’re doing something better or differently than somebody that doesn’t have a course with that name.”
However, Fischer says it’s important to attend a medical school that addresses opioid addiction somewhere in its curriculum, because this kind of common addiction is a quickly progressing and frequently fatal.
“One of the issues with opioid misuse as a chronic disease is that most chronic diseases kill people slowly and silently, but opioid use disorder does not,” she says. “It kills people quickly and when they’re young.”
Dr. Mishka Terplan, associate director of addiction medicine and professor at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, says the opioid crisis has led to vital reforms at medical schools. “The future of medicine is going to look very different in very good ways as a consequence of the tragedy that we’re living through,” he says.

If you think that America’s opioid epidemic hasn’t touched your life, statistics show there is a good chance you are wrong, with one out of every three American adults taking opioids during 2015. That equates to 92 million adults. It’s a shocking statistic that means you could well know more than one person who is taking these highly addictive drugs.
A disturbing new government study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine revealed that 38 percent of American adults were prescribed opioids such as OxyContin and Percocet in 2015, and many of these people misused these dangerous drugs. The author of the study, the National Institute on Drug Abuse Deputy Director Dr. Wilson Compton, said that he was surprised by the findings.
The researchers assessed the data collected from more than 50,000 American adults in 2015 in face-to-face interviews carried out by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The groups that were most likely to be prescribed opioids were women, people aged 50 and above, and people who were not college graduates.
In total, 5 percent of American adults, or 11.5 million people, were misusing opioids, whether it was by taking the drugs without a prescription, taking them to get high, or taking more than prescribed. Moreover, around 1 percent of adults reported being addicted to the drugs. If that sounds like a small fraction to you, think again: It equates to around 1.9 million Americans, and it’s possible some people who are addicted were not so forthcoming in interviews and that the real number is higher. Those with low family incomes and no job or health insurance were more likely to have this problem.
Among those who misuse opioids, nearly two thirds said they were doing it in order to alleviate pain. More than two out five got the drugs from friends or family. The researchers said that many people are prescribed opioids they don’t really need and then pass them on to family and friends who are in pain. This indicates that doctors are not only prescribing the drugs when they’re not needed, but that they are also writing prescriptions that are too big.
Prescribing practices need to change
It’s mind-boggling to see such a high number of people being prescribed these drugs even as concerns about widespread addiction and deadly overdoses grow. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, opioid prescriptions and fatal overdoses involving opioids have both quadrupled since 1999. That cannot be a coincidence, and Compton said that the medical profession is not prescribing these painkillers appropriately.
Indeed, a recent audit discovered that one third of all Ohio doctors failed to check patients’ prescription histories in a database as required prior to prescribing opioid-based painkillers. In that state, eight people die every day from overdoses. One particularly egregious doctor prescribed opioids to more than 700 patients in one month without carrying out a single check.
The CDC reports that opioids killed more than 33,000 Americans in 2015, breaking the previous record. Nearly half of all of these deaths involved prescription opioids.
Opioids should be a last resort
Boston University School of Medicine’s associate professor of medicine and public health, Dr. Karen Lasser, wrote in an editorial accompanying the study that a stepped-care approach should be adopted to pain management and that opioids should always be the last resort. She feels that doctors should first try non-drug pain management techniques like yoga, physical therapy or acupuncture, or give patients milder pain medication like ibuprofen or aspirin first. She also suggested that patients should be asked to sign a treatment agreement prior to taking opioids that highlights the risks of the medications so that they have a better understanding of their addictive nature.
Not all doctors are bad. They know what they’re taught and much of their teaching is from a chemical, procedural and surgical point of view. These days, if an MD or DO suggests natural alternatives, they could lose their license. All of that said, here’s the article. Please pay attention.
Doctors have had little training in alternative health or nutrition. They have also had a lack of encouragement to think for themselves. Therefore, when it comes to acting in the best interest of their patients, be it through ignorance, naïveté or ties to Big Pharma, doctors cannot be trusted. While the public becomes increasingly aware of this disturbing reality and its implications, most doctors still remain uninformed or stubbornly indifferent.
In light of this, here are 10 ways to stop your doctor from inadvertently killing you or your family.
1. Do your research!
Death by medicine is the 3rd leading cause of death (heart disease and cancer 1st and 2nd). Prescribed drugs kill over 200,000 American patients a year through drug side-effects or doctor prescription errors. Most of these patients had blindly accepted the doctor’s orders to take the drugs. So it’s of the utmost importance to do your research prior to giving consent if you or your family are offered prescription drugs.
Indeed, whether it’s to do with drugs or other health-related matters, do your research before accepting treatment.
2. Don’t assume FDA approval
Following on from 1, find out if the prescribed drugs had been given FDA approval. It may come as a shock to some that you (or your family) may be unsuspecting guinea pigs, having been prescribed unapproved drugs for drug trials. New drugs or surgical treatment techniques for that matter could be on the market without a scrap of evidence for their efficacy or safety. Find out if the treatment offered is safe, effective, really needed or if there are alternative approaches…
Warning: Doctors may be in the dark to the answers you are seeking. Beware of their attempts to cover up their lack of knowledge or they may give references to unreliable sources. Be prepared to look further afield.
3. Beware that FDA approval could be meaningless
Don’t assume that FDA approved drugs are safe. It’s astounding to know that research has revealed that around 33 percent of FDA approved drugs have been taken out of the market because they turned out to be seriously harmful to health due to side-effects.
How could anybody put their trust in the FDA when knowing that this approval body is in the pocket of Big Pharma and have a process with an abysmal 33 percent failure rate?
4. Don’t be bullied into accepting treatment
Remember, doctors have a number of reasons, particularly ulterior motives, to push their treatment on you or your family members. Vaccinations are a classic case. Besides the politicized health agenda and the increasing push for mandatory vaccinations which is an abuse of our health freedom, there are other ulterior motives.
The pharmaceutical companies selling the vaccines may offer bonus payments to doctors for reaching target numbers of vaccinated patients. Now, does that make the doctor anything more than a sales representative for the pharmaceutical company?? What about the mounting evidence to support the claims that vaccines are potentially harmful and have been shown to be ineffective?
Whether it’s to do with vaccines or other offered treatment, having done your research, as a patient, you should have the right to refuse by informed dissent.
5. To prevent your doctor from killing you and your family stand up for your health rights
It’s worth remembering that patient’s rights are indeed human rights, as we are faced with rising medical fascism from the ruling establishments. For instance, if your doctor is trying to force vaccinations on you or your family there are a number of procedures you can take to not get vaccinated.
One way of getting your doctor to back down from attempting to vaccinate is to ask him/her to sign a document having words to effect that the vaccine is safe. Make sure your document has as much relevant detail as needed: The patient’s credentials, doctor’s name, date, supplier of vaccine, product batch number, covering for any said adverse reactions, etc.
6. Make sure your research is not from biased sources
Discern the differences between biased pharmaceutical companies’ sponsored sources from other alternative health information. Don’t fall for the Big Pharma sponsored profit-based, biased and untrustworthy journals masquerading as having the definitive viewpoint…
7. Discern the differences between conventional medicine’s effective and ineffective treatments for making informed health choices
Basically, conventional medicine is largely ineffective when approaching disease, treating the symptoms and not the root-cause… However, it is highly effective when it comes to the treatment of accidents or injuries. For example, with ongoing technological advancements, it is excellent in prosthetics and also microsurgery…
8. Remember, doctors in their ignorance are known to steadfastly reject alternative naturopathic alternatives as effective treatment in spite of the evidence in support of their efficacy
Big Pharma cannot have their doctors treating patients with cheap, natural, alternative options. That would undercut their business. So these alternative approaches have to be ignored, invalidated (as already mentioned, in spite of their effectiveness) and suppressed. Hence the reason, for example, why doctors know very little about nutrition as a cure for disease, because of a lack of training in the Big Pharma-owned and -controlled medical schools.
9. Don’t be fooled by the doctor’s ‘neutrality’
Following on from 8 with an example: To get his opinion, you might say to the doctor; you’ve heard that a certain alternative nutritional therapy has been highly successful: His response could be something in the way of “…there is still not enough evidence to prove the effectiveness of this therapy.” This response, one of ‘neutrality’ on the alternative therapy, not giving it the thumbs-up, could send you into confusion over what to do.
However, the truth is, because of his lack of training in this area, the doctor has no idea about the overwhelming evidence in support of nutrition as a therapy.
Being fooled by the doctor’s ‘neutrality’ could lead you to decline the opportunity of taking up vital life-saving alternative natural health based practice for you or your family.
Further, don’t be fooled by Big Pharma’s disinformation attempts to demonize certain effective alternative health approaches or natural health based substances, as these alternatives threaten to undercut their businesses…
10. Remember, prevention is always the best form of cure
Make sure that you and your family eat a balanced diet of natural organic foods, stay well hydrated, handle stress levels, sleep well, exercise regularly, try to avoid toxicity and have an outlook on life that finds you in good spirit.
To prevent your doctor from killing you or your family you will have to think for yourself. Stay vigilant and aware. Fight for your health rights. The holistic approach makes all the sense in the world. You will have to make informed choices on health matters against a backdrop of the ulterior motives; greed, deception and ignorance driven by the medical establishment.

Ever heard of the 250,000 cotton farmers in central India who took their own lives after being manipulated by promises made by Monsanto? Monsanto claimed to be able to put an end to famine and promised unheard of riches and crop prosperity if the farmers would switch from their conventional farming methods to the use of GM seeds. Many farmers had to borrow money to purchase these seeds, and after several failed harvests, they were left with no income and out of control debt. After going bankrupt from Monsanto’s Ponzi scheme the farmers fell into an endless cycle of depression, hopelessness and despair. It is also believed that, aside from the obvious issue of loss of income, the daily contact with the poisonous pesticides and herbicides also led to the depression these farmers suffered from. They believed the only way out was suicide, many even poisoning themselves with the same pesticides they used to spray on their failed crops.
Do you really believe that dementia and depression caused by consuming toxic pesticides are limited to occupational hazards? What U.S. medical doctors ever test their patient’s blood or urine for pesticides before “recommending” chemical-based prescription medicines to relieve symptoms of pesticide poisoning, heavy metal toxin overload and the resulting nutritional deficiencies?
According to the Alzheimer’s Association and a controlled study that was done at Emory University’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, elevated serum pesticide levels are directly correlated to increased risk of dementia. Currently, at least five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease – the most common form of dementia and a progressive, fatal brain disease. Is this a coincidence? More and more American crops are being dosed with known carcinogens manufactured in laboratories by Monsanto, Dow, Dupont, Syngenta, Cargill and Bayer. Still, hundreds of thousands of U.S. doctors give zero nutritional advice to their patients who come to them suffering from the obvious symptoms, diseases and disorders caused by ingesting pesticides, including those toxins found in genetically modified corn, soy and canola. Go figure.
Are your body and brain suffering from consuming chemicals? Then why on earth would you listen to a doctor who pushes chemical-based medicines for a living?
Besides naturopathic doctors, there is hardly a doctor in America who carefully examines everything their patients eat, drink and put on their skin before “diagnosing” health problems. Can you lay a tarp over a volcano and hope to cap the molten lava? Would you put a band aid on your stomach if you ate rotten meat and were suffering from food poisoning? These chemical prescription meds simply don’t make sense.
If we, as Americans, are never educated about the dangers of health-altering chemicals found in conventional produce, GM crops and popular personal care products, why wouldn’t we believe that “doctor recommended” chemicals could solve our health problems?
Most Americans bodies are like a volcano about to erupt, showing all the signs of chemical consumption disorder. Will you solve your health problems by ending your chemical consumption, or will you exacerbate your health ills by continuing to eat, drink and inject more toxins? Who are your doctors and do they know anything at all about nutrition? You better check.
Five kinds of chemical pushing hucksters who know good and well prescription drugs make health matters worse
#1. Addiction psychiatrists – these are medical doctors who mainly prescribe SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) for people with addictions to alcohol, illegal drugs or other experimental prescription medications. Pharmacological “strategies” are used by psychiatrists to target individuals suffering from anxiety or attention deficit disorders due to substance abuse. Could anxiety and depression also stem from chemical-laced foods? Of course it can, but is there even one addiction psychiatrist in America who tests their patient’s blood or urine for poisoning from insecticides and herbicides? Instead of searching for the root cause, many addiction psychiatrists sling experimental, dangerous mind-altering drugs like Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil on tens of millions of Americans, including children and teens, because it’s easy money. Evidence continues to accumulate that these drugs induce suicidal and murderous actions, not to mention strokes for women after menopause.
#2. Pediatricians and adolescent medicine specialists – Ever heard of “Dollars for Docs?” Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are now required by law to release details of their payments to all kinds of U.S. doctors that push pills on infants, children and teens (over $6 billion every three years). Why are there no payments to doctors to promote organic foods and natural remedies?
#3. Oncologists (including radiation oncologists) – Did you know chemotherapy can backfire and cause healthy cells to feed the growth of cancer tumors? So why then do oncologists use chemo as a mainstream method of treating a cell disorder that’s mainly caused by the consumption of chemicals? It doesn’t make sense.
#4. Dermatologists – Most dermatologists perform surgery as a standard function for treating cancer “spots” on the skin, but cancer is a disorder of the cells, with a deeper-rooted cause. Would you go around your yard chopping off the tops of weeds and expecting them to stop growing? It doesn’t make sense.
#5. Surgeons – Should surgeons keep removing the malfunctioning organs of Americans who eat all the wrong foods daily? Is this cost effective and wise? Maybe every surgeon, radiologist, pediatrician and oncologist in America needs to go back to college and study nutrition, then reassess their fundamental approach to medicine.
