Video Transcript: How Big Pharma Controls Medical Schools
Ty Bollinger: First of all you mentioned the fact that we’ve got the pharmaceutical industry. We’ve got kind of an industry driven by money, and we’ve got doctors that are really smart people today, brilliant medical doctors. They’re using treatments that really don’t seem to work as well as some of these natural things. Why is it?
Can you go back into the history of the medical association, The American Medical Association (AMA), and maybe take us back 100 years and stair-step people to current day and explain why that is. Because I’ve heard you talk about this in the past and your explanation is fascinating, and I want the listeners to be able to hear this.
G. Edward Griffin: Well thank you for that. It is a fascinating story. It’s an important story, and I suppose we don’t have time to go into all of it, but maybe the best way here is to kind of back into it to start with where we are and then go back and see how we got there. Where we are today is that, just as you described, these very smart doctors.
Let’s face it, there’s a very selective process there. You just don’t get into med school unless you’ve got a pretty good brain on top of your shoulders, so yeah, it’s the cream of the crop. The best students go into these schools, these medical schools, but they’re not taught anything about natural cures. They’re taught only about drugs, primarily, and drug reactions and the chemistry of this and the chemistry of that. And they have to become really pharmacists in a way; they have to become chemists before they can even make it through pre-med.
So that’s not necessarily bad, but it is a bias. I have come to know a lot of doctors in the last couple of decades since we’ve been working in this field. Many doctors who came from that lair of education and who gradually and sometimes very painfully had to break away from that and go back and re-examine some of these fundamental issues.
Many of them have made the transition and they speak quite openly about it now. For instance, they’ll say, “when I went to medical school we never learned anything about vitamins except we had maybe two hours of instruction on the structures of vitamins and minerals and so forth.” Two hours compared to hundreds and hundreds of hours about pharmacies and chemical reactions and so forth.
I remember there was one doctor, he said, “you know my wife knows more about nutrition than I do when I came out of school.” And that is not surprising when you realize—now we start to go backward in time. How did that happen? The fact that these great medical teaching universities and teaching centers are so great is because they’ve had a lot of money given to them.
Where did the money come from? Now we’re on the trail. You know the old saying “follow the money.” And usually that’ll take you right to it. Well, if you follow the money you’ll find out that most of it came from the pharmaceutical industry.
The pharmaceutical industry knows that if they give large grants to these universities they have a double benefit. First of all they have the appearance of being philanthropists. You know they’re doing good things and that’s always—that’s good for public relations. I’m not saying that they’re not doing good things. They probably think they are. But anyway that’s one advantage to giving tax exempt or tax free deductible donations to universities.
The other advantage is far more important, because once you have financed a research project you now have sort of a “first right” to whatever comes out of that research and consequently you can determine in what areas the research will go. I can assure that if I’m a big pharmaceutical company and I give a twenty million dollar grant to a research group I’m not going to be very happy if they start to research whether or not dandelions can be used in the control of cancer.
I want to make sure they’re going to research a drug that I am working on in the laboratories right now. That’s where I want the research to go. So they realize that they can take their own research budget and transfer it to a university or some research laboratory and get a tax deduction for it, knowing full well that if that’s what they’re researching, that’s what the data is going to be.
So I don’t need to go any further. You can understand when the money is coming from a source which has a vested interest in the outcome, what’s going to happen is the outcome is going to be what the donor wants it to be generally.
I have been on/off
antibiotics for around fives years. Last summer my right leg was swollen to the point, that I could not walk. Once the swelling went down, I became covered in a rash.
I am under investigation for my skin and my throat. Finally accepted that the doctors are guessing. After some searching on the internet. I have a tape worm and mites, both as a result of a possible autoimmune disorder but this is the really good bit!
Made a skin scrub that has left me feeling relaxed for the first time in ages;
Smile Mix! Recipe
1 whole lemon; juice then chop up the whole thing and blitz
1 palm sized fresh ginger, chop with the skin and add to lemon.
I used a small coffee mill. Fill with whole cloves. Makes around 3-4 table spoons
Mix all together and slowly add olive oil, until the mix 'feels' like a scrub.
Place all of this in a clean mason jar.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL. Test on the inside of your arm and see how you go, if it is ok, then you are ready to go!
Stand in the bathtub with no water. Pat on to face but don't scrub. Next scrub your bottom. Please sit facing the plug to be safe. 'Dry bath' and scrub your entire body.Place the mason jar out of the way.
Then while you are still sitting in the bath, run it with very warm water. After you wash of the mix, you can lean in the bath and top it up with hotter water.
Careful stepping out as you have used olive oil. Hope you smile as you feel smooth and relaxed with the knowledge that you are winning your body back from parasites!
As a professional yoga instructor, my definition of self includes a focus on health, body and wellness. But this did not fully prepare me for the shock of a cervical dysplasia due to untreated HPV high strain at the age of 35. I had always tried to take care of myself as best I could, attended medical wellness exams, and tried to never miss my routine Pap screening for cervical cancer prevention. For years and years, I had normal Pap results, and I thought this was good enough to protect me.
But normal Pap tests can be deceiving, and even at the time of my cervical cancer diagnosis, I never had an abnormal result to indicate anything was wrong.
An evolving standard of care in cervical cancer prevention is to add an HPV DNA test before, or with a Pap test, to better determine if a woman is at risk for disease. This is because HPV, or Human Papillomavirus, is the known cause of cervical cancer, and helps identify women as at risk, before disease develops. Although there are more than 150 different types of HPV, approximately 14 types are considered high risk. Two types – HPV 16 and HPV 18 – are the highest risk, responsible for close to 70% of cervical cancer cases.
Close to 3 years ago, my healthcare provider, a nurse practitioner, had thankfully requested an HPV test along with my Pap. My Pap screening result was abnormal, I did test positive for HPV 16. My healthcare provider immediately recommended a follow-up procedure called a "colposcopy", to visually look more closely at the surface of my cervix, and to collect some additional cells from my cervix for examination under a microscope by a trained pathologist. These results came back noted as minor cellular changes. I was asked to return again for a re-check next month. The positive HPV and the abnormal Pap results indicated I was at risk for cervical cancer.
The following year I again tested positive for HPV, with abnormal Pap result. The nurse practitioner recommended another colposcopy.
My results were again the same; abnormal Pap and a positive HPV test. However, this time the colposcopy showed some suspicious looking areas, and a treatment called a "CERVUGID Ovules + ISOPRINOSINE Tablets" was recommended.
The first step was to start this treatment recommended by doctor, trying to preserve my fertility without any procedure.Our interest was to eliminate the cancerous cells just with treatment.
The treatment consisted in:
CERVUGID Ovules – 2 courses (each course represents 3boxes)
ISOPRINOSINE Tablets for 6 months (for immunity against HPV virus)
Vitamin B17 CASINOVITA ( natural preventive cancer treatment)
My next lab exams after I've finished the treatment showed that the Pap came back to normal and Negative HPV test for high risk strains.
Between my diagnosis and now, I have started sharing my story more openly, encouraging women to take control of their health and get tested for HPV as part of their cervical cancer screening. In response, women who have kept their own stories private and hidden are admitting to me that they too tested positive for HPV. As a result of these discussions, I often hear a sense of relief from other women because they appreciate learning that HPV is quite common, and that if their HPV infection does not clear, they are at risk for cervical cancer.
We need to increase awareness and education around HPV and its relationship with cervical cancer prevention!
WOW! Its been a Long time since Ive been here. So long I forgot my password and had a different email address. Thus centex2 is born. Im still alive. Awesome huh? Its been 13 years since my diagnoses and the scary prognosis of 6 months to live. Never give up hope, always study natural cures, and live a non toxic life, physically and mentally.
Tattoos risks unsafe, danger or deadly dangerous? The immune system is shifted, and the full implications of this is worth noting.
The doctor is just telling the implications of tattoo
Would you get a a tattoo if it effects the immune system?
And with with Fukishima aftermath already effecting the immune system where does that put people today?
There was guy that went swimming after getting a tattoo flesh eating virus entered it the body from where the tattoo had broke the skin was the point of entry. Like who would of thought?
