Scientific Medicine Is
Often Scientific Deception
Promoters of conventional medicine claim that all
the drug marketing, drug approvals, surgical procedures, chemotherapy
and all other treatments are based on "hard science." But is it
Where is The Skepticism About Conventional
The term "science" is invoked with hilarious frequency: Science
journals, science-based medicine, proven medical science and so
on. As you might have guessed, however, there's surprisingly little
genuine science to be found in the common practice of conventional
medicine. Rather, what passes for "science" today is a collection
of health myths, half-truths, intellectual dishonesty, self delusion,
fraudulent reporting and wishful thinking.
Take clinical trials, for example. These are supposed to be the
"gold standard" of scientific study, and yet it has been well
demonstrated that these studies almost always produce results
beneficial to the organization providing the funding. The wishes
of the study sponsors, not true scientific methods, determine
the study outcomes. This is accomplished through an elaborate
system of fraudulent trial design, selective reporting, dismissing
study subjects who don't produce the desired outcome, statistical
distortions and the application of career pressure to the researchers
who carry out such studies. (Researchers who don't produce the
desired results get blackballed by the industry.)
The end result is that today's so-called "scientific medicine"
has almost no resemblance to genuine science at all. The word
"science" is simply used as a cover story for what's really going
on behind the scenes -- a massive campaign of pro-drug propaganda,
arm-twisting, public brainwashing, media control and regulatory
failures that all add up to one thing: A system of medicine that
is the greatest con ever perpetrated on the American people.
Conventional medicine is almost entirely justified by truly bad
science. And yet so-called skeptics, who are supposed to exercise
clear thinking about all subjects, never seem to question the fraudulent
science behind prescription drugs. The mass drugging of children
for fictitious diseases, for example, seems to be okay with such
skeptics, who are too busy bashing homeopathy and acupuncture to
take an honest, critical look at the junk science behind prescription
drugs, it seems.
Ultimately, these so-called quack-busting skeptics only question
certain selected topics. All drugs get an automatic thumbs up, no
matter how ludicrous the underlying science, while all natural therapies
are automatically and routinely criticized by skeptics who equate
their own lack of understanding with proof that something mysterious
can't possibly work. They say homeopathy can't work, for example,
simply because they can't find any mechanism to explain how it could
work. That's tantamount to saying that nothing new will ever be
discovered because skeptics already know everything there is to
know about the way the universe works.
Let's face it: Neither conventional medicine, nor its promoters,
has attained any real membership in the club of genuine scientists.
Real scientists are people like Richard Feynman, a legendary author,
lecturer and infinitely curious individual who never allowed his
own ego to cloud his open mind about the laws of the universe. If
Feynman were alive today and observing the so-called "science" backing
conventional medicine, he'd probably laugh out loud at the utter
lack of scientific merit found in the drug studies published in
so-called "scientific journals."
The Church of Medical Truth
While defenders of conventional medicine don't have membership in
the club of genuine science, they are card-carrying members of another
organization: The Church of Medical Truth (similar to the Ministry
of Truth from 1984). In this Church, the beliefs of members (doctors,
FDA bureaucrats, media reporters, etc.) are handed down from the
high priests, and those beliefs -- that all drugs are good, all
vitamins are bad, etc. -- are blindly followed by the faithful,
who dare not question those beliefs on any genuine scientific basis.
This is how doctors have come to believe the incredible: That food
has nothing to do with health, that antioxidants will kill you,
that herbs interfere with drugs, and that only drugs can treat or
cure disease. It's a cult-like belief system handed down by the
high priests of conventional medicine, and if this intricate web
of false beliefs was actually subjected to genuine scientific scrutiny,
it would crumble into a thousand pieces of junk science and marketing
Conventional medicine, as practiced and promoted today, has nothing
whatsoever to do with good science, but everything to do with promoting
a particular cult-like worldview that says only doctors can treat
or cure disease, not patients, or nature, or nutrition. And its
proponents and practitioners are not scientists, but rather part
of the congregation of the Church of Medical Truth. Mainstream media
stories that parrot the cult-like beliefs of conventional medicine
are the singing of the church choir, and the altar boys getting
sodomized in the back room by high priests are like the public being
chemically assaulted by Drug
Companies. (A kind of "medical violence" perpetrated against
the general public.)
What Skeptics Should Really Be Considering
Consider these facts about modern medicine:
• There is currently no requirement whatsoever that surgical
procedures be scientifically proven as either safe or effective
before being widely performed on the public.
• Chemotherapy has been scientifically proven to be worthless
at curing cancer, enhancing quality of life or protecting the health
of the patient. In fact, chemotherapy kills patients, and even the
ones who survive it are left with permanent damage to their brain
("chemo brain"), kidneys, liver and other organs. Chemotherapy is
a medical hoax with absolutely no scientific validity. The size
of a tumor is not a measure of the degree of cancer that exists
on a patient's body, and shrinking a tumor is not a meaningful measure
of a cancer treatment's success.
• The rapid rise in depression, ADHD and other mental or "behavioral"
disorders is so large that it can only be explained by either an
infectious epidemic (in which case the CDC should be involved) or
rampant disease mongering where drug companies invent diseases and
push them onto children and adults in order to sell more drugs.
Anyone who believes that ADHD is a real disease that has inexplicably
stricken 1000% more children over the last twenty years is kidding
themselves. This "disease" is pure fiction, and there is absolutely
no blood test, no MRI, no lab test, nothing to diagnose ADHD other
than the opinion of someone who most likely earns kickbacks from
• Nearly all pharmaceuticals receiving FDA approval today have
been tested on only a few thousand people for a very short period
of time (as little as six weeks in some cases). Yet, from such limited
testing, the FDA declares the drugs to be safe for everyone, even
for long-term use, without a shred of evidence that such long-term
use is safe.
• No scientific testing whatsoever has been done to fully document
the toxic effects of combinations of medications. Deadly drug interactions
are simply noted after the fact. Consumers who take multiple prescription
drugs are literally serving as Big Pharma's guinea pigs.
• There is currently no requirement whatsoever that drug side
effects noticed by doctors be reported to the FDA. The entire system
of reporting is purely voluntary.
• The entire paradigm of pharmaceutical medicine makes no sense.
Chemicals are used to treat "biomarkers" or measurable biochemical
states, yet disease and dysfunction is complex and always involved
more than a single measurable number. Cholesterol drugs, for example,
may artificially lower cholesterol numbers, but they completely
ignore the root cause of elevated cholesterol. This is why cholesterol
drugs have been scientifically proven worthless in preventing
heart attacks or other fatal cardiovascular events.
• Most drugs don't work on most people. Claims of benefits
are highly exaggerated by reporting their relative percentage
rather than absolute percentage of efficacy. For example, if two
people out of 100 normally get breast
cancer, and a drug causes that number to be reduced to one person
out of 100, the drug company will claim a "50% reduction in breast
cancer!" when, in reality, it's a 1% reduction across the population.
Yet the drug will be marketed to everyone as a breast cancer "prevention"
strategy. And yet 99% of the people who take it will experience
no benefits from it. Most drugs are useless. A drug only
has to work on about 5% of test subjects to receive FDA approval.
Someday, future medicine may actually be based on open-minded curiosity
about the laws of nature and how human beings may attain a higher
state of health. But until then, we're living in the Dark Ages of
medicine, where the power of the Church of Medical Truth seems absolute,
and its own modern-day Inquisition conducts routine search-and-destroy
missions on any health practitioner who dares to question the power
of the Church.
Real science is about the search for truth and an understanding
of the laws of nature, but modern medical
science (conventional medicine) is little more than a search
for profits at the expense of public health. It has nothing whatsoever
to do with genuine science. And as the public wises up to this,
the future of conventional medicine doesn't have a prayer.
After the collapse of Western medicine, real health care will inevitably
end up returning to its roots: The healing power of nature.
