The health care industry worldwide is being hijacked by the medical establishment and the pharmaceutical conglomerates.
It has taken advantage of its God like reputation to propagate dubious and ineffective treatments that drains most countries's struggling health
resources. The power these establishments hold is immense, even to the degree in which they can influence or call their tunes with governments.
Foremost in this tragic story is the mandatory administering of Chemo Therapy to cancer sufferers. The billions of dollars worldwide the drug
companies are reaping from cancer patients is reprehensible. The effectiveness of this treatment has never been called to question for good reasons.
Making obscene profits at the expense of giving patients false hope, and who are fighting for their lives, must be one of the lowest denominations of
humanity. The efficacy of chemo has been so grossly overrated that desperate sufferers have been led to think it is their only hope.
In a recent paper published in the Australian Journal Clinical Oncology, it found "chemotherapy contributes just over 2 percent to improved survival
in cancer patients." And that is after the authors (all oncologist) deliberately erred on the side of over-estimating the benefit of chemotherapy.

Of course, this paper did not receive much exposure anywhere. It is not something the almighty powers to be would want too many people to know, or be
Imagine if an alternative medical practitioner were to administer treatments with that same appalling rate of failures, he will be hounded out of the
profession or even jailed for practicing quackery.
If the amount of money being siphoned off the public were to be spent on alternative and safer treatments, there would be cures for many ailments in
the world today. The health services of most countries will be better off.
Moreover, the medical cartel, has been using its influence to pressure governments to increase control & restrictions for the alternative health
industry. The growing popularity and adoption of alternative medicine is eating into their profits. Their insidious high level maneuverings may one
day force us to buy vitamins behind the counter.
Public's well being is not high on the agenda of the drug companies. Selling safe, healing drugs are not in their best interest. Their mantra is to
design drugs that are patentable, profitable and has side effects, so that you have to take another drug to counter the effect of the first, and so
on. The doctors designated as legalized drug pushers to ensure continuous sales.
The symbiotic relationship between the doctors & drug companies are at best highly immoral. Incentives given to the doctors for sales of specific
drugs goes on all the time. This practice ensures people are put on medications when there are really no good reasons to. The misuse of antibiotics is
a good example, one that has far reaching consequence to this day.
Ask any person over the age of 60 and find out the cocktail of drugs they have been prescribed routinely by their MD. Foremost in the list would be
for high blood pressure or high cholesterol which are easily avoidable through lifestyle change. That would not be conducive to the profession's
bottom line. Most patients are seldom informed of the serious side effects these seemingly innocent drugs can cause.
Check out the list of FDA drugs recall and you get an idea. The FDA unholy alliance with the drug companies is another story. To think it is the
supreme authority all Americans have entrusted to looked after their well being, is frightening.
In this age of easy access to info on the internet, it is the duty of everybody to do their own research and be informed. Not just blindly obedient to
what their doctor dictates, but to raise question at every opportunity. You owe your body that much.
